In the US, without the first or second amendments (or hell, any of them), we would all be genuflecting in front of Big Brother. And we would be speaking German.
In the Philippines, without laws protecting cockfighting (such as the Cockfighting Law of 1974) than it would be like that Stooges song: "No Fun".
Cortes blocks cockfighting ordinance - INQUIRER.net, Philippine News for Filipinos: "The reason for the rejection: It contradicts a national law. The ordinance vetoed by the mayor was supposed to ban cockfights in Mandaue City even during fiestas. The move came after Cortes also vetoed the ordinance approved by the City Council that regulates the hiring of consultants and advisers. According to Cortes, the ordinance banning cockfight contradicts Presidential Decree 449 otherwise known as Cockfighting Law of 1974, which allows the “holding of cockfights during Sundays and legal holidays and during local fiestas for not more than three days.”"
