Hey, ultimately, they elected these folks, so what’s the problem?
Besides, they can always raise taxes. Y’know like a .2% add on to the sales tax called “the school bake sale tax.” Which can no doubt be “returned” to the general population in the form of fresh celery sticks at public sporting events.

I love this. Massachusetts’ populace is so “educated,” like Leopold and Loeb, so they worship their “superiority” to elect these amoral Nietzschean supermen (like ovomit), to be their socialist nannies. They’re so invested in the philosophy, and unreasoning in anything deeper, that they can’t even see it as ridiculous government intrusion. Now on to the supermarket: Twinkies? Banned! Cheese danish? Forbidden! Whole milk? Hah! (Cows will be banned once they go that far!)
“NEW YORK — A New York City health department inspector bizarrely slapped a Brooklyn bagel shop with $1,650 in fines — because sesame and poppy seeds fell to the floor while the bagels were being made during working hours.
The owner of B&B Empire Bagel Cafe — who appealed the violations and lost at two separate hearings — said the inspectors must have holes in their heads.
