  1. ahahahahahaha

  2. They’re on the ban-wagon, too, I see.

  3. Fuck you, asshole.

  4. But he’ll never sign a law banning cigar smoking outright, I bet.

  5. This is one of those 0-effect laws making people do what they’re doing anyway, so that the politicians can claim credit for the sun’s setting.

  6. Shocking.

  7. I wonder how long it is before they decide that coffee is addictive and bad for you. When that day comes, I’m taking up arms.

    Well, I’ll try to take up arms. I mean, my hands will be shaky, the headache will make it hard to concentrate on the task, and I probably won’t be in any mood to get up early in the morning for guerrilla operations. But I’ll certainly want to join the resistance.

  8. Maybe Sarah Conner could reprogram him to be less of a douche-bag nanny.

  9. This is one of those 0-effect laws making people do what they’re doing anyway, so that the politicians can claim credit for the sun’s setting.

    I’m guessing you didn’t read the linked article: “But the legislation was vigorously opposed by the California Restaurant Assn., which argued that it would not substantially affect public health because people eat most of their meals at home.”

    Now, why would they oppose this if every restaurant already has dumped trans-fats?

    This law is about high-end restaurants who have dumped trans-fats picking on their competition by enlisting health-nanny-statists to do their dirty work for them.

  10. Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

  11. Would I be of collectivist mindset, I would propably apologize for that Schwarzenegger guy sharing the same native tounge as I do. 😉

  12. So, even from the European Union of Socialist Soviet Republics oer here, California appears to be socialist to to the bones.

    Not for nothing is it called the left coast.

  14. If Cali could charge each of us a dollar for every gram of trans-fat consumed, the legislature would have mandated trans-fat in drinking water.

  15. All this from the guy who did the intro video of “Free to choose”

    Kind of ironic

  16. When Arnold was elected, a German friend of mine mentioned: “We had someone from Austria come and take over once. It didn’t work out so well.”

  17. Fuck you, asshole.

    No. Fuck YOU, asshole.

  18. I don’t know who T-1000 is, but he should call himself “Cyberdyne Systems model 101.” The T-1000 was Mr. Melty in T2. Who never said the word “fuck” that I can recall.

  19. Arnold spends too much time with hise wife’s family.

  20. I think Arnie’s wife Skeletress could use some ingestion of trans fats a few times a week.

    When’s Arnie gonna ban steroids?
