    Every time I read about California it becomes more bizarre. From allowing students who think they should use a boys room in high school even though they do not have a penis, to giving drivers licenses to illegal immigrants. Ban all pesticides and allow the bugs to devour the whole state!

    Announcement from gummint of California: no businesses welcome here. Property is theft. Profit is obscenely selfish. So sayeth the Profitless Marx.

    I suppose California has too much time and money on their hands. Sue them back Whole Foods.
