Teabaggers in Missouri are up in arms over a proposed law that would regulate the state’s puppy mills by requiring them to give a bitch some rest between pregnancies, yo, and feed the puppies actual food and water. This has enraged them, obviously, because such regulations infringe on our cherished freedom to abuse animals and buy cheap abused puppies. The group leading the charge against the law, “Alliance For Truth,” says the Humane Society hates animals and “seeks only to raise the cost of breeding dogs, making it ever-more difficult for middle-class American families to be dog-owners.” This is yet another big-government intrusion into our ownership of living beings. It’s like that slavery debacle all over again.
Anita Andrews from Alliance For Truth told TPM that it’s a “deceptive, lying bill” that is “trying to purposefully get rid of the breeders.” The state of Missouri, she said, has been given a bad rap as “the puppy mill capitol” of the U.S. but “in truth we have the best ribbon breeders in the country.” And, Andrews said, the state already has anti-cruelty laws on the books.
“They don’t like animals,” she said of the Humane Society.
Andrews also explained that Cass Sunstein, “one of the biggest animal rights activists,” and President Obama’s Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, is tied to the Humane Society, and is helping them give Obama “a punch list” of the animals rights activists’ agenda.
It’s sort of amazing how every random bit of government action in this country can be traced back to that Kenyan. BUT IT’S SO TRUE. Obama is shoving that dog Bo in our faces, mocking middle-class Americans who can’t afford all but the most horrifically abused canines. [TPM]
