    This time the socialist movement in America is targeting puppy mills. That's right ladies and gentlemen, big government wants to control those puppy mills. Your god given constitutional right to own a dog is at stake here people! Force those puppy mills to give the animals adequate food, shelter and water and it will drive those puppy mills out of business, the costs of puppies will rise I tell ya! It's all a part of Obama's socialist plan to turn you all into Muslims! Don't believe me? Read this:

    All I can say is thank God they have Joe the Plumber on board to stop this horrible big government interfering on how decent god fearing Americans mill their puppies!

      It seems that socialism isused as  a synonym for evil! Of course,those who do not know anything about socialism distort its meaning. I wish the entire world would change to socialism. so that the gluttons of capitalism would not have the power to exploit humanity to swell their own coffers.

      Socialism is not communism! Untramelled capitalism is as evil as communism. Capitalists possess the tool of exploitation (capital)
      which enslaves people. Americans, wake up and observe how capitalism
      enslaves you. I have been to many countries and I have seen all political,social and economic function. Capitalism is an evil that has brought untold sufferings to masses. Capitalists would hire you when you are a potential asset to their  drive to amass more money. But,
      when their venture does not bring them maximum profit what happens to their slaves? They are fired irrespective of your loyality and past efforts to enrich them-  they just "kick you out"! What about your family? The capitalist is devoid of compassion and what happens to you and your family is no concern of the capitalist.

      The capitalist has little morals. Look at the pornographic industry which earns billions a year. However, many of you Americans do not have guts nor the morals to destroy the pornographic industry which contributes
      in great measure to the producing of rapists and other sexual deviants.

      What balderdash that Obama is planning to turn all into Muslims! What
      connection is there between socialism and Islam. Socialists are
      not confined to any religious group. Such preposterous statements
      only come from the ignorant who tune in to Rush Limbaugh,Sean Hannitty, Mark Levin and other right-wing nuts from the fanatical fringe of the USA!

        Even though Kirstenblog's post is, I assume, meant to be tongue-in-cheek, it still scares me that many Americans today are filled with the delusions of their own habitual bias.

        People trying to protect defenseless creatures are demonized with exaggerated slurs and it becomes socially acceptable among fools to speak their jaundiced lies publicly in the hopes of encouraging the rest of the mob to join them in their blatant hatred and resentment.

        "Let's appeal to the worst in people!"  IT'S ALL PART OF THE RIGHT'S FRIGHT CAMPAIGN!

        apparently people don't care if they're puppies come from mills. Otherwise they'd ACTUALLY pay for properly raised puppies.

        My mom was a Yorkie breeder for about a decade. Puppy mills are disgusting. But tell a family that their puppy will cost 5-10 hundred bucks and they are likely going to go down to puppy mill central and buy these poor guys.

        if you want them to go away, buy from a breeder.

      Dog breeding becomes bureaucratized. Cost goes up, quality goes down. Only a select few will survive the cumbersome government regulation; they will monopolize the dog breeding market. Big-business dog breeding is in bed with big government since big government is what created it in the first place. They make bad business choices because they know they can rely on government subsidies. They fail. They get bailed out at the tax payers expense. Dog breeders say "my bad". Business continues.

          I'm disgusted by this, but it unfortunately just goes to show that people don't REALLY care if their puppies are from mills. If they did, this kind of stuff would go away.

          Most pet stores buy from mills, and unfortunately a properly bred dog will run $500+ (if you're lucky).

          Find a breeder, and buy from them. It costs more, but if you want to see Mills go away, buy from a breeder.

            Informed people will buy from a reputable breeder.  However, there are a lot of uninformed people who either are not aware of the prevalence of puppy mills or who are easily fooled into believing that they are buying from a reputable breeder. 

            Puppy mills exist because, without proper regulation and enforcement, a good proportion of business owners will abuse the helpless and deceive decent people just to make a buck.

              No - puppy mills exist because, apparently, consumers don't care enough about how their puppies are brought up.

              Demand is what creates supply: you can't "have" a good or service until you know that either you or someone else "wants" it.

            Puppy mills exist because people don't care enough to buy reputable dogs.

            Some guy figured "hey, i bet i can create a puppy mill, and things'll be awesome". And then... no one gave a rat's behind, and the business venture kept going.

            And, to this day, puppy mills still exist because people don't care enough.

            Yes, I care. Yes, you care. Yes, just about everyone here cares.

            But not enough people care:

      What we need is a "no pup left behind" policy.

      This is definitely an area where more government regulations are needed. Even for the laws already in place, too many inspectors are lazy or easily bribed. Also, there simply aren't enough inspectors to go around.

        Rather than a regulatory agency and a myriad of labyrinthine rules a simple rule by which all activity can be regulated with no real intrusion.  Complete. total disclosure of how the dogs are bred, kept, raised and fed.  What dog lover would purchase from a puppy mill after seeing that horror show?  It is the cynical that breed dogs like this it is not the dog lover. 

        Most private dog breeders are lovers of the specific breed they are producing and want to give good animals good homes.  Increased government and bureaucratic interference will end the decent dog owners business along with the puppy mills. 

        By their nature government agencies do not care about you or me they care about procedures, rules, regulations, paperwork, etc.... 

        The greatest disinfectant is sunshine.  The  required exposure of the disgusting practices of puppy mills should be sufficient regulation.

          By nature businesses do not care about you or me, but profit. The concept that we should ignore horrible practices because if we require that standards be practiced will be too costly is fodder for idiots. It is the same ridiculous and ill-thought out argument that we should not require that chemical companies don't poor their waste into our streams, thus causing birth defects and cancer in children, because making them not kill us would cost them money, and they would pass the costs along to us. Wait...you people actually use that argument, and have in the last week. SO, let's be blunt. People like yourself are pure evil.

                  You know good and well why you are referring to him as President Hussein, and it isn't because you like his middle name.  Your phony indignation merely reveals your inability to own up to your intentional manipulation of his name to imply some vague feeling that he's either foreign-born, a Muslim, a terrorist, or all three. You are entitled to call him whatever you want; at least be adult enough to own up to your reasons for doing so.

You agree with dumping chemicals in the water, slave labor, ignoring all emission controls, and basically kill everyone around that in a haste to make another dollar. Yeah...it isn't about being a citizen or a comrade; it is about being a good human being. You can grrr and call Obama whatever you want, but it doesn't change the issue that your belief structure kills people for no reason but profit, children, elderly, pregnant women, all of us.

      "Socialism" cannot be defined correctly. Whenever people intend to seize others' property, it is "socialism". If everyone goes to their own work and earn their own living, there is no necessity for socialism or communism. Let everyone go to work and earn themselves and raise their standard of living. After becoming rich, no one will like socialism or communism.  Let everyone do hardwork, earn and become rich.

          Do you expect him to take less and donate major portion to the workers and labourers?  Is that just?  Workers should get wages according to their volume of work. If anyone dreams of cutting into the capital, the whole business will collapse... because the investor only knows its value. Only communists talk like this. Because, they have not yet seen the hardships faced by our ancestors.  They hold a book written by Marx and read something. And think it is fit for the present world. The circumstances prevailed at that time in Germany and Europe in general warranted his policies to become famous.  But it is dead.

            Paying a fair wage does not in any way involve anybody making donations in a well run and profitable business. Is it just that a man should break his back and have his family poorly clothed and fed so that another can live in comfort off the fruits of his labour?
            A fairer sharing of profits does not involve cutting into capital, capital only accumulated from the labours of the workers.
            Without the major investors in the business, the workers, there would be no business.
            I'm only spouting Marxism by default, I don't follow him, I'd reached many conclusions well before I was familiar with Marx.
            Imagine being told no pay rise for 300 workers because the boss has just bought a new  Rolls Royce, for cash? No payrise for 100 guys making kitchen units because the boss has spent the money on home improvements.

            We still see prosecutions for damage to workers caused by employers making short cuts. Not much has changed.

        It is not socialism that is the problem! It is untramelled capitalism that one should despise! have you seen how the patriotic insurance companies  find sources outside the U.S.A. to do the work while millions of Americans suffer. These companies are motivated by greed not compassion for workers in other countries. I destest the Taliban and other similar neanderthal idiots who are trying to destroy the U.S.A. But,
        they are not alone!

          Everyone in USA is more or less ignorant of the status of world economy.  If insurance companies go out from USA, it is because of the investment potential from other countries. The work of the insurance companies is not to offer jobs to Americans... it is just to collect investment and use it as capital for their economy.  If Americans were wise enough to same a pence a day, the present situation could not have come.  Indian economy survived because of people's savings-cum-investments only.  At least from now on, please go to a bank, start saving from any small amount you earn. Things will get better in a year's time.

            India survived as a result of handouts from the World Bank and the result of the import of low paid jobs so they could be performed at even lower cost.
            You could say India survived by exporting poverty!

              "India survived as a result of handouts from the World Bank..."

              You forgot to mention that the money in question was stolen from people who generated wealth for the world.

                  You argue for the state probably non-stop. I argue against it non-stop.

      So why is it that MISSOURI has 30% of the nation's puppy mills?
      And how is it that along with Joe the Plumber a new "faction" of the Tea Party called the MEXICO Tea Party rose up to oppose this socialist plot to make us all into MUSLIMS.
      Three M words.
      Think about it, folks.
      Coincidence?
      I think NOT. There's something going on here besides breeding cockapoos and pugs. Yessiree.

      BTW, here's link to the outcome of the Missouri Measure B election. It passed... but narrowly.

        The members of the Tea Party? A horde of rabble-rousing good for

        At first Mighty Mom, anyone would think that your post is in jest. You actually think that the link between MO, Muslims, and what...Mexico or Mills maybe, are a secret socialist plot. However, you really believe this. You think because you can find 3 words in one of the craziest linear thoughts around, that they are linked and a socialist plot. Holy cow. I should be shocked, but I am not anymore. Why is it that the people who need the most psychological help don't think they do?

            Not all tho, one or two picked up on the tongue and cheek nature of my OP. I believe I shall attempt to keep my tongue firmly pressed against my cheek in all of my postings here from now on. Perhaps by being absurd it will illuminate the absurdity (veiled as seriousness) that I see on these forums daily.

      Puppy and kitty mills need to be OUTLAWED period! Substandard breeding adds to added vet bills latter on down the road. I'm not going to mention the animal cruelty. Joe the Plummer needs to stay out of politics and get a job! For the conservatives who go through their day to day business in a total panic that we're going to become a socialist country and scared of Muslims, GET A LIFE! For those who have a short term memory and that need to be reminded every five minutes, we're at war with terrorism, not Islam!

        Paul Wingert, you said it very well. Do not look for scapegoat for your
        misdirection in life. Yes, the terrorists that killed so many on 9/11/2001
        were all Muslims. But, you do not need to have more than an ounce of grey matter to conclude that not all Muslims are terrorists. During the age of colonialism, so many white European men invaded other countries, raped ,robbed and enslaved people who were not white. Are you gouing to conclude that al;l whites are barbaric and savages?

        Yes, Joe the Plumber needs to find work and pay the taxes due from him instead of running with the hyenas of the Tea Party Movement  who are adept at blaming liberals for all the troubles of the world . They must also learn civility andf adhere to civilzed norms. They remind me of the Goths and Visigoths of Europe. These barbarians wreaked havoc on many European counrties.

      I think we have bigger fish to fry here. With all the issues, puppy mills are not the priority. Why does it allways have to be so divisve? R vs D, Left vs Right, Liberal vs  Conservative, Capitalism vs Socialism. I mean there is more than one way to skin a cat. If we don't find a way to end the arguing over every little thing we are doomed. You know they do say that every dog will have it's day.
