Timid Yet Extravagant
Of course there is no money for Marin County to fix our crumbling roads. With the supervisors spending millions remodeling their own chambers and Disneyfying the 680 Trail, the leftovers go toward building the Sheriff's Fusion Center and purchasing "Stingray" listening devices to spy on us rowdy taxpayers. If the roads get much worse, the sheriff won't be able to drive his tank around and fight all that crime.
There is really nothing for these overpaid commandos to do here in pleasant Marin County. I would cut his budget in half and stop him from participating in Homeland Security's illegal spying on the citizenry.
At least in two years we can get rid of three more of our timid yet extravagant supervisors.
With April Fools' Day just around the corner, it appears that the meat, egg, and dairy industries have been playing us for fools all year-round. Their more remarkable hoaxes include "California's happy cows," "free-range chickens" and "humane slaughter." All lies.
Less fun is the stuff they never talk about. Like the hundreds of millions of chickens crammed seven to a cage designed for one, unable to spread their wings. Or their hundreds of millions of male counterparts ground up live at birth and fed to other chickens, or just dumped into plastic garbage bags to suffocate. Or the miserable breeding sows producing millions of piglet per year while trapped in tiny steel cages.
Ah, those meat-industry folks are such kidders. But they won't be fooling American consumers much longer. Anyway, happy April Fools' Day, everyone!
