Good Grief: Magician Needs Disaster Plan For Bunny

When conservatives talk about the Nanny State, Big Brother, Big Government, the over-arching intrusion into our affairs, etc, this is what we mean

(Washington Post) This summer, Marty the Magician got a letter from the U.S. government. It began with six ominous words: “Dear Members of Our Regulated Community . ..”

Washington had questions about his rabbit. Again.

Marty has to have an official federal govt license to have rabbit, sue to old laws about regulating zoos and circuses. Seriously. Even for just one bunny who performs tricks

That was what the letter was about. The government had a new rule. To keep his rabbit license, Hahne needed to write a rabbit disaster plan.

“Fire. Flood. Tornado. Air conditioning going out. Ice storm. Power failures,” Hahne said, listing a few of the calamities for which he needed a plan to save the rabbit.

Yes, this is really in the Washington Post, not the Onion or a spoof site.

Or maybe not. Late Tuesday, after a Washington Post article on Hahne was posted online, the Agriculture Department announced that the disaster-plan rule would be reexamined.

I’m other words, they’ll pretend to Do Something because this looks really foolish. The WP writer, David A. Fahrenthold should check back with Mr. Hahne in a few months.

“Our country’s broke,” Hahne said. “And yet they have money and time to harass somebody about a rabbit.”

It’s what today’s “progressive” government lives for.

    You’re familiar with Sharknado, right?
    Same thing would happen here, but with rabbits, should he fail society and not have a plan written.
