Foi Gras Banned in Chicago
More government sticking their nose into people's lives, this time decreeing what they can and can't eat (or purchase, at least).
While we're at it, let's just ban chicken (have you seen an overcrowded chicken farm lately?), pork & beef (slaugherhouses ain't no picnic) and you have to admit sticking a hook in a fish's mouth before suffocating it isn't exactly pleasant.
This is simply a small part of the animal rights douchebags' agenda to outlaw the serving of all meat, aided and abetted by a clueless councilman, who admits to not being fully aware of all the facts and hearing about it from some equally idiotic Hollywood type who apparently used to be in M.A.S.H.
I have to give kudos to the French where it is due - protecting it from E.U. interference by claiming it as part of the country's intrinsic heritage and hence making it untouchable. They may have a lot wrong with them, but they don't take any crap when it comes to messing with their food and drink.
