Sometimes one has to wonder how our country got into the mess we're in. And how is it that geographical location can determine the same location's political sanity.
In some California communities, it is now against the law to de-claw your cat. Doing so can land you in jail and get you a hefty fine. Read it here. Now, Californians who move to our neck of the woods think we're crazy out here.
A state that has more budget problems than Chrysler is concerning itself with de-clawing cats. Will removing dew claws on dogs be next? (We do that out here so that the dogs do not injure themselves as they go chasing birds that we've shot out of the sky.) What happens if you've had your cat de-clawed in South Dakota and then move to California? Will you be arrested for being in possession of a de-clawed cat?
Every time I read guys like Sam Hurst tell us how stupid we are out here on the lone prairie, I have to wonder from where are they coming?
Jail and a fine for de-clawing a cat. Go figure.
