It’s San Francisco: What Are We Banning?

Goldfish.  Yes, it’s goldfish.  Not circumcision, not yellow pages, goldfish.  Via Conservative Byte:

The recommendation to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors is part of the commission’s ongoing efforts to discourage “impulse buys” of animals.

The commission’s ban would cover pet stores and breeders in the City. It comes after more than a year of study and findings that aquarium fish are often mass bred under inhumane conditions or stripped from the wild.

However, the ban is only a recommendation and not likely to be passed by the full board of supervisors to become law.

That’s what happens to lots of these recommendations.  Why not busy the Supervisors with complexities of the goldfish emotional life, it’s not like San Francisco is in debt or anything.



  1. Goldfish?

    Why can’t they ban Nancy Pelosi. I mean, if anything qualifies as an “impulse” buy it’s her.
