From Eric Dolan, Raw Story

Missouri Republicans are flocking to a call to fight socialism at all costs, even if it means killing a few puppies.

Republican State Senator Bill Stouffer filed legislation to repeal a bill aimed at curbing cruel and inhumane treatment of dogs by breeders last week.

The Missouri Dog Breeding Regulation Initiative, Proposition B, known as the "Puppy Mill Cruelty Prevention Act," requires large-scale dog-breeders to provide basic food and water, adequate shelter, necessary veterinary care, adequate space, regular exercise, and adequate rest between breeding cycles to dogs under their care. The bill also prevents breeders from owning more than 50 breeding dogs.

Here's a link to the story:  Puppy Mill Act Under Attack

I'm sorry this isn't much of a diary, but I think the article speaks for itself.  

There never seems to be an end to the amount of cruelty some Republicans will unleash in order make political gains.  

Please help us to make this article go viral and please call State Senator Bill Stouffer's office and complain if you support animal rights legislation.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
