18. They aren't my numbers.
Ted Kennedy's sailboat isn't a living thing and it didn't compete in the Olympics. I don't recall Ted Kennedy taking a tax deduction for his sailboat, either.
I don't think making fun of dressage is silly or unproductive in the slightest --it is, as I said, emblematic of how out-of-touch Money BooBoo and Queen Annie are with the rest of the nation. If it were silly or unproductive, we wouldn't have so much wonderful humor about Rafalca to enjoy as a consequence of this election--it was an "easy mock" for the average citizen. I've lived all over the world. I've met people from all walks of life and all cultures in my long life. I don't know ANYONE who engages in the practice of dressage. It just is not "common" no matter how much you might want to pretend otherwise.
Just because the rare person--and they are, like it or not, rare--who is not rich is able to engage in this "sport" with horses that aren't "good enough" to make the Olympic grade--that doesn't make these poorer people the norm when it comes to this hobby, and I didn't see any poor folks at the Olympics competing and winning. Rich people shipped their horsies to London, not poor people. Rich people outfitted their horsies and their paid riders in fancy outfits, not home-made, "affordable" get-ups.
It's a rich person's amusement. Those horses cost more than most people make in a year.
