Prop B is supported by a coalition of animal advocates in the state and nationwide, including the Humane Society of the United States. It's opposed by breeders, the agricultural industry and, most recently, by Joe the Plumber. Remember Joe the Plumber? Joe Wurzelbacher who campaigned for McCain in 2008? He's gotten involved in Missouri's issue, on the Alliance for Truth website, siding with the puppy mills — and calling himself a Tea Party man. (Odd that the Tea Party favors puppy mills, isn't it? I know they don't like taxes, but they don't like dogs either?) The Humane Society is "cowardly [sic] hiding behind animal cruelty, lying to our citizens and taking our constitutional rights away -- one state at a time," Joe writes. "This bill is just a stepping stone. HSUS eventually wants to extend this law to ALL animals. Their idea of utopia is a United States with NO animal ownership; NO meat to eat; NO pets; NO hunting; NO fishing; NO service animals."
