Missouri Senator, Mike Parson, is a mentally deficient person; someone who acts in a self-defeating and significantly counterproductive way
I know it's not nice to call someone names, nor is it productive, and I try to rise above those antics on this website, so instead, I looked up the definition of an idiot and came up with the title to this posting. I thought it was better to describe Senator Mike Parson versus just labeling him with a name. I rarely get this cynical, but this guy pushed me to the edge.
Please listen to the youtube video below of Parson speaking on his opposition to Puppy Mill legislation. He actually says Puppy Mills are an asset to the state of Missouri. He is also woefully challenged in math, which would be okay if he weren't using his erroneous math calculations to gather supporters. Actually, in all fairness, it's not so much his math that's the problem, as it is his facts. He just has them all wrong. His math formulas are correct, but he's plugging in all the wrong numbers because he's either ignorant or deceptive. I suspect, both.
My original post was back in September. Read what Jasper reported. If you landed on this website for your first time, here are two links I suggest: ABOUT and HONESTY.
Prop B or The Puppy Mill Cruelty Prevention Act was passed by voters in Missouri. Now legislators are working to repeal the newly passed law and they are misrepresenting the facts to constituents and their colleagues. There was no "compromise" on B. It has been REPEALED. Watch the champion of this repeal spread his lies in this video. Senators voted to keep Missouri the Puppy Mill Capital by striking the most basic of provisions from Prop B including: continuous access to water, one annual physical exam by licensed veterinarian, any rest between breeding cycles, increased space requirements that would allow a dog to take steps and move about, protection from harsh elements of the outdoors and temperatures. Please watch this video and get the facts straight before the Missouri house votes this week to support the vote of the senate and take Missouri back to the dark ages for these voiceless dogs.
An excerpt from Parson's website:
Senator Parson was raised on a farm in Hickory County, and graduated in 1973 from Wheatland High School in Wheatland, Missouri. He is a small business owner and has been for many years. He is a third generation farmer and currently owns and operates a cow and calf operation near Bolivar.

Missouri Anti-Puppy Mill Law, Prop B, Overhauled By Lawmakers For Being Too Costly
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- Missouri voters thought they scored a big win against some of the nation's most notorious puppy mills when they approved strict new dog breeding regulations last year. Now state lawmakers are changing the rules.
The Humane Society of Missouri and the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals were among the animal advocates who pushed for ballot measure, pointing to emaciated and flea-infested dogs that lived in filthy conditions. Even breeders who followed the rules, proponents said, have been allowed to keep dogs in wire cages not much larger than their bodies and exposed to excess heat and cold.
Please call Missouri Governor Jay Nixon and politely and respectfully ask him to veto the legislation to repeal Prop B, even if you are not from Missouri. You can also go to the Governor's website and send him the message there!

"The animals of the world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans any more than black people were made for white, or women created for men." ~Alice Walker
The source of the quote is Walker's preface to Marjorie Spiegel's 1988 book, "The Dreaded Comparison" . Her next sentence was, "This is the gist of Ms. Spiegel's cogent, humane and astute argument, and it is sound."
"I was so moved by the intelligence, sense of fun and personalities of the animals I worked with on (the movie) Babe that by the
end of the film I
was a vegetarian."
