another california dickhead

Sleep well tonight. The nanny-government of California is going to protect its sheeple citizens from death by french fry. My aching ass.

Attorney General Bill Lockyer asked for a court order requiring McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy's, Frito Lay and other companies to warn consumers that their fries and chips may contain acrylamide, a chemical the state says causes cancer.

Yeah. People are dying in droves from eating french fries and potato chips. It's a fucking epidemic and SOMETHING MUST BE DONE!!!

Bill Lockyer is an idiot, in MY humble opinion.

I have two problems with this story. First of all, the science doesn't exist to back it up. Second--- most people don't pay a damn bit of attention to "warning labels" anyway. What does Lackyercommonsenseofagoose REALLY hope to accomplish other than make french fries and potato chips cost more because of ham-handed government regulation?

This guy is an asshole. He should be dragged off and shot. As Attorney General, he doesn't have anything better to do?

But it's California, the certified nut-bowl of America. That prick probably will be elected governor some day.


It's for the children...

Most AG's are scum. It must come from a career of enforcing unconstitutional legislation.

Here in NC, we refer to AG's as "Aspiring Governers," and the current excellency is a former AG.

I always vote for the candidate who was not as AG, when given the opportunity.

I was going to post about this too, but since you already have....

I used to work for a company that did food ingredients (I did the labeling stuff) and let me tell you, Prop 65 is the biggest pain in the ass. California is the ONLY state that has this obnoxious legislation. Alcohol is on the list, do you believe that? Ridiculous. Not even the EU is as fucking anal as the Californians.

I am frequently embarrassed to be a Californian, even though I love living here. If nothing else we provide entertainment for the rest of the world :)

And some people wonder why I hate living here in Calif.

I look forward to eating the new version of "cancer sticks"

Next up: A warning on Oxygen tanks that says breathing causes death....

Maybe I should move to California, then I could sue because Wendy's made me eat so much of their food that I now weigh 300 lbs. Just think, I could sue for being a fatass and get rich. Bejus! What the fuck is next.

Lockyer is a fuckwit. His ass is in hot water already (over the anti-American art display he sanctioned) and he can only be equalled in stupidity by none other than Maxine Waters and Bob Filner.

I'm not embarrassed to be living in California. I consider it my duty to prove that not everyone here is an idiot.

Here, Here GODDESS.(you too baldy!) It's a dirty job, but some of us Have to stay here to keep these krazy butt nuggets from spreading out to fuck up the entire world.
I just bought a new truck and there was a big "notice" on the driver's side window explaining as how California's fine leaders were hereby warning me that all the nasty vapors in that new truck smell would cause me to break out with cancerous tumors.

Man, the big quake that breaks that state away from the union can not come fast enough.
