In the latest episode of “Banished!” by the People’s Republic of California, Governor Jerry Brown is likely to sign a bill that prohibits restaurants from offering anything other than milk or water with their kids’ meals, under the pretense of preventing obesity.
Effectively they’re telling parents they’re not capable of being trusted with their children’s health. It’s Big Brother Knows Best vs. mom and dad.
I think the 4-legged sick puppy is better looking and probably has more HORSE SENSE than the two-legged one.
The wack jobs in California and others like them have to be stayin awake at night trying to dream up ridiculous issues like this. Like my cousins in West By God say; they ain’t normal!!
I could just see the headlines this morning in the (CGI) California Gazette for Idiots, if PDT would have come up with a hair brain suggestion like this. The liberal media would be going wild.
TRUMP HAS LOST HIM MIND AGAIN
Now we have a nuts case in the White house that is going to dictate what our kids can drink – next he will be telling us is what they can eat. This madman should be impeached and confined to a padded cell for the rest of his life.
If some of these preposterous actions are not strong indicators of just how off the charts these people are, Sluggo never got into Nancy pants and WW II was not loud!!
They all must be smoking toooo much weed and have tooooooo much time on their hands. Jer should be focusing on how to get rid of California’s debt instead of these foolish undertakings of his.
