I’m not usually into animal cruelty, but there’s something about rodeos that really turns me on – I suppose it reminds me of politics. Think about it: in a rodeo, you’ve got cowboys making all sorts of incredible stunts while trying to ride a bull. In politics, you’ve got a bunch of scheming politicians doing their best to ride the public opinion, using all sorts of crazy PR tricks. In the end of the rodeo, the bull is most likely to get bruised; in the end of the elections, the public is most likely to get screwed: see, it’s just the same thing!
All in all, I must say I actually favor rodeos over politics, even though both things are representative of our primitive, aggressive roots. Why? At least the rodeo people are honest about what they’re doing: having fun at the expense of the bull. Myself, I’ve never been to the National Finals Rodeo (NFR), but it sure sounds like an interesting event – after all, many people refer to it as “super bowl of rodeo” (and not many people refer to the elections as “super bowl of the manipulations of the masses”, although they could). So if you’re looking for shelter from all the political madness later this year, why not consider getting some National Final Rodeo tickets; I guarantee you’ll be better off!
