I don't know if I mentioned it here before, but I was really worried about this happening. There's a movement afoot in the state legislature to prohibit imports of eggs into the state that weren't raised under conditions imposed by last election's Prop 2.
Damn. I was right again, although whether this effort will succeed remains to be seen.
So, voters in the state voted to raise the price of eggs, but at least some of us could still buy the cheaper eggs from out of state. Not if this effort succeeds. This is horrific example of big government control of one of the very foods people depend on for living as eggs are used in so many of the foods we eat, just like corn and sugar.
Food prices have already been climbing for some time and now we might not have any recourse but to buy more inexpensive foods being smuggled in from out of state.
Things do not look good in this state. I'm really thinking it's past time for a civil war. Then again, maybe this effort can be quashed by the courts declaring it as interfering with interstate commerce. I won't bet money on that, though.
