More on Missouri's Proposition B!

Nancy Kraus Womack has done extensive research on Proposition B and has written a two part series.

Prop B: Protecting Puppies or Robbing Us of Our Freedom?

Part 1: World's Collide Or The Futile Effort to Have a Reasonable Argument With The Animals Rights Proponents

An excerpt:
As to the issue at hand, The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) is an animal RIGHTS organization behind the Missouri ballot initiative known as Proposition B---the puppy mill initiative. Why, who would be opposed to saving the puppies, you ask? Well, not me-----if I believed for one second Prop B was really about the welfare of dogs. Problem: this is NOT about animal welfare at all! This is about ultimately controlling the agriculture industry and once again, limiting the freedoms of the citizens of this State and this country.

Prop B - Part II: The Money Trail, The Players and Their Strategies
An excerpt:
The so called ‘Humane’ Society of the United States is anything but ‘Humane’. It is deception and deception that abuses the emotions and VOTE of every kind hearted, animal loving citizen of Missouri. The Humane Society of the United States has pumped over $2 MILLION $$$ from sources outside Missouri into this ballot initiative Proposition B. They want this bad and the HSUS purposely targets States like Missouri that use the ballot initiative in order to bypass the legislature. It is much easier to use emotion to gather signatures on a petition and get their issues on the ballot. Wayne Pacelle, Pres. of HSUS, calls such initiatives targeting dog breeders, second tier or ‘low hanging fruit’. It will set the stage for his first tier agenda which includes ‘factory’ farming and an end to hunting.

Crazy? It is Pacelle’s own words. We'll get to that in a minute.

This PROP. is supposedly about shutting down ‘puppy mills’. It will do nothing of the sort. The Animal Care Facilities Act (ACFA) 1992 is the law on the books. The state of Missouri is grossly underfunded and understaffed. There are only 8-12 inspectors at any given time to inspect 1600+ breeding facilities and another 1200+ non breeding facilities. Where is the call for funding in Prop. B to inspect and enforce anything? There is NONE.
