Comes now the Oklahoma State Legislature, intent on defending this state from all who eat ARUGALA! We will teach those commie symp Californians that we are red meat eating Real Americans. Watch out you arugala eaters. The Legislature is on your trail.
They’re going to BAN all local governments from regulating livestock. Read it yourself:
In particular. . . “B. No political subdivision shall regulate the care and handling of livestock in this state. Local legislation in violation of this section is void and unenforceable.”
This has passed the House Ag committee, and a similar bill has cleared the Senate ag committee. When it is passed by the full Legislature, as it surely will be, among many other things it means that I can have a chicken coop full of chickens right here in the middle of the Gatewood Historic District. Maybe even a goat. Or two, goats are sociable creatures. I have a second house on my property, presently used for storage, it could be a barn! YEE HAW!
Once again, the Law of Unintended Consequences is about to rise up and bite the Oklahoma State Legislature right there where the sun doesn’t shine.
I say let them have all the rope they want to grab so they can hang themselves high, hoisted with their own petard. If anyone deserves those just desserts, it is certainly the dishonorable members of the Oklahoma State Legislature!*
*The two or three honorable members excepted, of course, alas, it will be like Sodom and Gomorrah — too few righteous to save them from political destruction.
