When serving fois gras is a crime, only criminals will serve fois gras.
With its many fiscal and social problems, you might imagine that California legislators have more important things to do than to ban one of the world's most awesome foods. Alas, the WPCE* continues to lower the bar.
*Worst Political Class Ever.
A fair example of just how psychotic and dysfunctional our political life has become. Imagine how those "Duck activists" would react if one brought up the issue of abortion.
We have a judge out in the Midwest telling us that we do not have a right to our own cows' milk; Bloomberg openly acclaims that not only is it the government's right to enforce "a good healthy diet", it is its duty. Can anyone imagine them getting away with that 30 years ago? How very low we have fallen--and we are so inured to our decline that we are not even aware of just how low we have have fallen. I tell you, we are a not far away from banning "unhealthy" books, thoughts or speech (which s really what all this is about in the first place).
The Cultural Marxists are just projecting their psychoses on those filthy, dirty...er, ah...liver eaters--that, and indulging in pure power lust.
It is hard to believe that even 5% of the population cares one whit about the fate of the Ducks. I love the part about this having "broad support" in the legislature, as if the lunatics in Sacramento would do anything other than vote for the most idiotic and tyrannical laws, yet nothing tops that "representative" making such weird and bizarre remarks about the patrons, as if they were doing something deeply immoral and, pardon the word, sinful.
It is just sheer psychosis on his part. Are we really to believe that he has such deep feelings about Ducks? Something much darker is at play here, yet such speech passes as unremarkable. 40 years ago he would have been marked for the insane martinet that he is. Back then he would have known better than to shoot his mouth off like this. Whatever happened to CA? It was once the State known for Freedom and live and let live. It has become a tyrannical nightmare.
(Do not tell me, I actually know what happened to CA)
If we do not soon reduce the power of government, one day the demands will be much greater than banning Duck Liver, and that's no chopped liver, either. It s very sad what has happened to this nation.
We have now perhaps the strangest and oddest polity in history--it s more weird and Indecipherable than those of ancient Egypt. One wonders what historians will make of the USA under the Liberal Boomers.
So the state that has the highest per capita consumption of cocaine, thinks it can ban duck livers successfully? Ha!
End results of this law:
Domestic producers in CA will be damaged to the point of losing jobs.
The True Rich will continue to profit on the fat of the fowl.
Eventually Fois Gras will be renamed and reclassified as "Something Else" in CA, and everything will go back to normal...until they pass another law.
They have been busy lately.
CA has banned the use of tanning beds for minors.
They have enacted a 'dream act' for illegals in the state.
Gov Moonbeam vetoed a bill which would require a warrant for searches of hand held electronic devices.
And they now require all newly purchased long guns to be registered with the state.
They are fiddling and or throwing fuel on the fire of CA's economy as it burns to the ground.
And to think that I had the dream of one day retiring and moving back to my home (Orange County), having spent the last 25 years shoveling snow in the winters in PA. Until they get their act together, it just isn't going to happen. The fiscal irresponsibility and nanny-state mentality - even outside of San Fran - is mind-boggling.
