They don't have enough money to pay their bills, but the CA legislature has plenty of time to tell their people what they cannot eat. And I'm sure they will find the money to police this law. We have idiots running our governments. Idiots who think their job is to tell us what to eat, drink or smoke.

Now we have another reason to not vacation in CA.

"With a deadline of July 1 looming prices have doubled, restaurant menus are replete with every possible version of the dish, and gastronomes are engaging in one last cholesterol-inducing binge.

California's decision to ban foie gras, which is made from the liver of a specially fattened duck or goose, was taken in 2004 and signed into law by then Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, but an eight-year period of grace was allowed."

Everyone play nice.

I shall rescue this thread.

The rules are simple. Cite a new law for a state, any state, that you do not care for, then announce that it is yet another reason for you to not vacation in said state.

For instance:

A new Texas law bans all disposable containers on the Guadalupe and Comal rivers in New Braunfels, Texas.

Now we have another reason to not vacation in TX!

Not frustrated at all. I'll eat my foie gras elsewhere.

Unlike many people, I don't need government to tell me what to eat.

Ahhh, the delicious taste of animal cruelty.

While it's silly to have a law banning the serving of a meal created by consistently force-feeding a duck (mainly by the use of tubes shoved down their throats) to purposely expand its liver, it's especially silly that people eat such a dish.

I could only imagine the outrage were it cats or dogs that were being forced fed so that their liver could expand and then be ready to serve on a dish.
