No Goldfish For You!

SF Animal Control Commission seeks ban on goldfish

Did you see where you state ranked on the Freedom Scale? No surprise that California ranks #48 with their ever-overreaching regulations.  Now comes another one from San Francisco:

The City’s Animal Control and Welfare Commission is pushing for a pet sale ban in the city – only this time, it even covers goldfish. The idea is to put the squeeze on puppy and kitten mills that supply pet stores, and to discourage “impulse buys” of hamsters and other small pets that often wind up being dumped at shelters.

“Most fish in aquariums are either mass bred, under inhumane conditions or taken from the wild,” commission member Philip Gerrie said. That leads to “devastation of tropical fish from places like Southeast Asia,” he said. The proposed ban, which the commission just adopted after a year of study, was expanded to cover animal breeders as well as pet stores. Gerrie accused the “human” species of exploiting the environment – and the fish. “Humans are overfishing for food,” he said. “There’s a huge market for aquarium fish. That creates a demand.”

As for people who would argue that it’s just a goldfish? “That’s how we are in this society,” Gerrie said. “Some people say, ‘It’s just a human’ – when it comes to some that kill. It’s a matter of degree. Where do you stop?

Local merchant like Ocean Aquarium owner Justin Hau is dumbfounded. “The city is taking more and more control,” Hau said. “They are very stupid.”

 Quite a leap to compare a human being killing another human being to wanting a goldfish for your kid. But that’s how dramatic the environmentalists will be to validate their points.

  1. Let’s see now, in San Francisco hurting fish = bad, killing babies = great!! Man + woman = wrong, etc. well, you get the picture. It seems like those geniuses have been constipated for so long that it has backed up and pushed their brains out through their ears.

  2. And this is the same city, San Francisco, that will defend to the death a woman’s “right to choose” to abort to kill her unborn baby! – which means they value the life of a goldfish more than the life of the unborn human being.

  3. More self-proven stupidity by left/libtards,

  4. Dear San Fransicko Libtards:
    Capitalism is about voting with your dollars PLEASE allow citizens to buy what they choose with the money they earned or saved. You have my endorsement to enforce needless intrusions against crimmigrants and recipients of public assistance.

  5. Sage, what if you need a liberal to feed your piranha?
