Save The Great Whites! California Bans Trans Fats

Can’t a shark get a break? There are only so many seals to go around, and the Porkers (Aussie for Great White), need a rich, fatty diet to survive. If they die out, no one will be able to blame it on anthropogenic global warming! (via that Hot Air headlines thingy)

California, a national trendsetter in all matters edible, became the first state to ban trans fats in restaurants when Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed a bill Friday to phase out their use.

Under the new law, trans fats, long linked to health problems, must be excised from restaurant products beginning in 2010, and from all retail baked goods by 2011. Packaged foods will be exempt.

Seriously, is this what the system of government is about that was established by a marvelous document in 1776?

In related news, Californians have yet another reason to leave

Speculation that Toyota Motor Corp. might build Prius hybrids in the Bay Area appeared to unravel Thursday when the company announced plans to start Prius production at a Toyota plant already under construction in Mississippi.

Why? One word: taxes. Just too damned high. So, at least 1,000 jobs, not to mention the influx of money, wave bye bye to the environmentally conscious state of California. Good job!

    Teach I would have thought that the reason was prevailing wages. Could you post a link that shows why taxes were to blame

  3. Read the article, John. Perhaps I should have written taxation. The tax base in the area is huge, the government was not going to give any tax incentives, but Miss. was, plus, Miss has much lower taxes.
