Texas House Moves to Strip Rights of Sporting Dog Owners

House Bill 1451 classifies you as a commercial breeder if you maintain eleven female dogs that have not been spayed, and you sell dogs. Without even so much as a warrant. This bill gives inspectors the authority to search the premises where records are kept without probable cause or even a warrant. A suspected drug dealer does not have to worry about government enforcers storming his house without cause, but a dog breeder does? That is simply amazing!

PETA Building to be Renovated Thanks to Bob Barker

“Once again, Bob Barker is proving himself to be a real ‘Sugar Daddy’ for extremist animal rights groups,” said Doug Jeanneret, USSA vice president of marketing. “Not only does he want to train an army of anti-hunting lawyers, he continues to bankroll a group known for its extreme shock tactics and support of accused eco-terrorists.”

Scarey and Amazing Quotes from leaders of the animal rights movement

"I don't use the word "pet." I think it's speciesist language. I prefer "companion animal." For one thing, we would no longer allow breeding. People could not create different breeds. There would be no pet shops. If people had companion animals in their homes, those animals would have to be refugees from the animal shelters and the streets. You would have a protective relationship with them just as you would with an orphaned child. But as the surplus of cats and dogs (artificially engineered by centuries of forced breeding) declined, eventually companion animals would be phased out, and we would return to a more symbiotic relationship ­ enjoyment at a distance." Ingrid Newkirk, PETA vice-president, quoted in The Harper's Forum Book, Jack Hitt, ed., 1989, p.223.
