    Michael Vick paid his debt to society. I realize some will never be able to get past the dog fighting, but America is about second chances. He has the right to make a living and provide for his family just like anyone else.

    They killed dogs, not people. It was brutal, but millions of chickens, pigs, and cows are slaughtered everyday to eat. Many of them do not live in great conditions. Such as chickens whose feet have never touched the ground or seen sunlight.

    I was hoping that these shoes would be available in stores. But if they don’t actually self lace then major FAIL. Good for the charity though!

    Michael Vick tortured animals to death. A lot. For a long time. For fun.

    He has a right to make a living, not a right to make millions and millions and millions of dollars. However, if he were working at my neighborhood store or restaurant, you better believe I would never step foot in the place again, and I certainly won’t support his being given wealth and privilege that should go to somebody who isn’t a psychopath. That’s because I have a right to refuse to financially support psychopaths — regardless of where or how they’re employed.

    What IS wrong with Texas, exactly?

    Go ahead and don’t “support” him then. Are you a sports fan or NFL fan anyway? His chosen profession, that is very specialized and not everyone can do, and that also generates BILLIONS of dollars in revenue, just so happens to pay its employees millions of dollars. I don’t know where you’re from, but the USA is a free market society.

    As far as what is wrong with Texas??

    Nothing more than any other state in the country. We have the most fortune 500 companies here besides NYC. I live in Houston which has an openly gay mayor. Where do you live?
