  1. Wow, brutal..... Eco-terrorists and animal rights activists are just as bad as the jihadists....
    Taken from the article:
    .....Will Hazlitt, spokesman for the Animal Liberation Press Office. "Our main concern, and animal rights activists' concerns, is the suffering of the animals." Yes, over the rights and welfare of people. Think I may have to go down to OC and support those restaurants....been craving some foie.....

      Even worse, these terrorists are probably voting and collecting social security.

        Oh noes... he's going to have to subscribe to life lock... :/

      2. Thanks for this. I forwarded to a restauranteur I'm acquainted with, not in CA, who serves foie on occasion.

        1. I'm not going to say he deserved, but in a previous article he sounded quite flippant about the lawsuit threat. When the Foie ban went into effect, folks laughed because they just couldn't imagine inforcement. But once it becomes law, it's not the cops knocking down your door its the lawyers. Some have made quite a stink about things like dragees... others have made fortunes out of the ADA. Even the threat of a lawsuit can cost you $$$ in legal fees...Like the other restaurant in the article stated, it's often just too much for a small place to even worry about...
