True to form and working along their "assbackward" philosophy "Slaughterhouse" Sue Wallis and Dave "Doink" Duquette's trumped up Native American complaint on Madeleine Pickens Rose Parade float totally blew up in their faces with the net result of...

Never mind!-
PASADENA, Calif. (January 2, 2011) – The Tournament of Roses announced Cal Poly Universities as the winner of the Viewers' Choice Award for the 2011 Rose Parade® presented by Honda, themed Building Dreams, Friendships and Memories. The float, themed "Galactic Expedition," received 10,802 votes out of a total of 44,730 votes submitted. This is the third time that Cal Poly Universities has won the Viewers’ Choice Award.

"The Cal Poly Universities students have constructed floats that prove to be fan favorites year after year," said Gene Gregg, chairman of the Tournament of Roses Judging committee. "This is a very special award and we are thrilled that so many Rose Parade fans took an active role in Tournament of Roses history by casting their vote.”
For the first time ever, fans were able to cast their votes via text message in addition to an online poll. Out of a total 44,730 votes, 25,122 were cast via text message and 19,608 were cast at Voting took place from 8:00 a.m. (PST) to 2:10 p.m. (PST) on January 1, 2011. Parade fans were able to vote for their favorite float up to five times.

The 2011 float submission from the two universities of Cal Poly San Louis Obispo and Cal Poly Pomona depicts seven childhood friends building the rocket ship of their dreams and taking their imagination to soaring heights. An operative crane, a spinning planet and a full complement of tools and toys are all situated on an airy cloud high above the earth's surface. The float is decorated with more than 12,000 roses, 8,500 mums and approximately 9,500 carnations. The Cal Poly Rose Float student organization has participated in the Rose Parade since 1949. The organization is comprised of students from both Cal Poly Universities campuses located in Pomona and San Luis Obispo, California. Students collaborate throughout the year to produce a crowd-pleasing float in two pieces and join them together in October when the decorating process begins.

The winner of the award was announced by Tournament of Roses President Jeff Throop, live from the Post Parade Showcase of Floats.

Even if the Mustang float didn't win it brought to the surface the plight of these wild legends and the need for preservation.

Thank you so much RT. These people, wallis-abbey-salazar, are really just not to be believed. They really are the worst of the worst. It goes beyond ideological differences or plain old greed, they are morally bankrupt people. They actually go out of their way and enjoy causing pain and suffering. It is not too often that you run across people who are just bad, but these guys are. Thank you again for all your great work for the wild mustangs and burros.

Tried several times to vote, and couldn't get my computer to cooperate. Hopefully, next year. In the meanwhile, will sign all petitions headed my way to help the horses.Maybe before that, Wallis will have a skeleton falling out of her closet and will be exposed to the world.

The float looks beautiful. I think they need to vasectomize some of the stallions that have enough descendents and then leave their herd alone. Over time, the population growth will slow so that they don't need to be rounded up all the time. As the stallion grows too old to lead, a younger stallion will take over that can reproduce. When the population starts to increase, then vasectomize that new leader to keep the numbers stable again.

We really are the most arrogant of the species! We actually think it's our duty to control the growth/existence of every other species while we leave our own to spiral hopelessly out of control?! In my lifetime the earth's population has more than doubled and it is set to do so again in the next thirty years taking our infestation of the planet to 12 billion people and counting. All of the sudden every blade of grass and every drop of water is critical and must BELONG to cattle ranchers, gas and oil driller/pipelines, hospitality industries? This isn't about the mustangs, it's about greed and money! Get rid of the tainted BLM, their sycophants, and employ people who actually care about the mustangs to take over their care and survival. The destruction of this species, along with others like the tigers, rhinos etc, it's such a long list, is closely linked to ecological disaster as well.

Christine S., with horses, it's not called "vasectomize", it's GELDING. They would have to capture the stallions, tranquilize them to do it, but it's far easier to dart and render sterile some of the mares. Mother Nature takes care of the stallion "problem" most of the time. There is little in-breeding with wild horses, contrary to what the BLM claims. If you watched the documentary, "Cloud, Stallion of the Rockies", it's all explained and documented by years of observation.

Charmaine, well said. I couldn't agree more. We DO need to control some species, our pets, for instance, but seems that we are incapable of realizing that there are humans who need to be "gelded" and not "breed on" even if THEY think they have the right to do so. When will we get the answer?

Interesting story. I tried to vote for this float from 9 am until 3:30 and that's when I could first enter the website to place my vote. I think the lines were closed by then. If they want everyone to have a fair chance at voting, they need to change the ways they do things.
