Put Rep. Steve King in a Tiny Gestation Crate. And Leave Him There.

Factory farms, and Big Ag in general, have thousands of their prostitutes corrupting every branch of government.  But one of these prostitutes is sleazier and skankier than all the rest, and that would be Steve King (R—Hands Around His Ankles).  He added an amendment to the 2012 Farm Bill, H.R. 6083.

This amendment — euphemistically named the Protect Interstate Commerce Act — will eliminate every state, county and local law that protects animals’ rights.  The amendment is supposedly directed only at local rules that affect agriculture — health and safety standards for farm animals, bans on tiny gestation crates, workers’ safety and environmental protections.  That’s bad enough.

But the way the amendment is worded, it could overturn ANY local ordinance concerning animals’ rights.  Laws regulating puppy mills, laws against dog fighting and cockfighting — POOF!  Gone.

A spokesman for the Environmental Working Group said:

“This is exactly the sort of thing that’s done at midnight on a Wednesday night.  We’ve never seen anything that would so profoundly threaten the ability of states to protect consumers, farmers and the environment.”

Someone from the Humane Society said:

“The scope of this amendment is so absurdly far-reaching that it’s even difficult to talk about.”

If you’d like to see Steve King’s own personal spin on the Protect Interstate Commerce Act, here’s his website.  You can even contact him and tell him what you think of him.

Not many people know this, but Rep. Steve King is anorexic and only weighs 94 pounds.  He only looks big and pudgy because of the gallons of Big Ag jizm sloshing around inside him at any given moment.

So let me get this straight, we can use the commerce clause to go against states rights for chickens but for people getting insurance this is a no no.

Also too you betcha, he says in one sentence, CA can do what it wants with regulations that is fine, but then goes on to say no they cannot regulate things from other places. Was CA not the leader with the emissions stuff, in the 80s and 90s, that other places followed? See why I could never be a bagger, it's too much damn work being a contortionist with thought.

Rep. Steve "Dead Babies in Garbage Cans" King strikes again. This cruel insanity comes as no surprise. King is a lunatic.

Jess: According to a Humane Society e-mail (where I learned about this), the Supreme Court would overturn this law because of the Commerce Clause. But there will probably be a huge groundswell of opposition to this law from Florida and CA, since both of those states have voter-approved initiatives cracking down on certain factory farm abuses.

SW: It's an insult to Iowa voters that they keep re-electing that sack of shit.

Mr. C: Yes, I'll have another plate of e. coli and a side order of salmonella.

Demeur: Nah, if I don't eat broccoli I'll grow up to be a big hulking stud like George H.W. Bush.

typical of democrats to call out someone for animal cruelty by making this bill mostly about food stamps. How unfair to the American people that they play this game
