U. S. Representative Steven King(R-Iowa) startled a lot of people with his strange ideas but it took a long time for a particular one to see the light of day.
Representative King added a amendment to the most recent farm bill that basically ties the hands of any current laws and organizations that defend and promote animal rights. The bill would legalize high density cage laying hen farms and crowded conditions for hogs and cattle but the most outlandish of all parts would make it perfectly legal to fight dogs for entertainment.
It would also give legal protection for puppy mills.
I don't know what kind of idiot this overblown lump of arrogance was thinking but to stand by and not let him and his party know that this is un-American is an exercise in evil.
This would be legal if Mr. King has his way.
