Reaction Part 1

Sometimes I wonder when I’m ever going to lose the childish impulse to react in the precise opposite way to officially-mandated stupidity.  Here’s one example of the latter:

Los Angeles would become the largest city in the U.S. to ban the sale of fur products if the City Council approves a proposed law backed by animal activists who say the multibillion-dollar fur industry is rife with cruelty.
The council was expected Tuesday to direct the city attorney to draft a law prohibiting the manufacture or sale of fur products in the city.
The ban would cover apparel made in whole or in part of fur – including clothing, handbags, shoes, hats, earmuffs, jewelry and keychains.

I don’t live in LA, of course, nor would I ever;  but if I did, I’d be buying one of these things tomorrow:

The paws are a nice touch, don’t you think?

I don’t know where I could wear it in order to create the greatest outrage, however;  perhaps some of my California Readers could suggest a few choice locations (e.g. Century City) in Comments?


  1. It makes me chuckle because I’m always reminded of a line from the 1991 movie Switch with Ellen Barkin. , JoBeth Williams is wearing a fur coat. As she’s about to enter a taxi in New York City she’s approached by a protester who shouts, “Do you know how many animals had to die to make that coat?” She responds, “Do you know how many animals I had to fuck to get this coat?”

  2. That might not be a good idea Kim.
    The peaceful, inclusive, loving and kind liberals have chosen violence as
    the means to alter other peoples behavior. And since Californistan is a large
    “gun free” zone, you would have no means to defend yourself from the gentle
    and kind hordes attempting to beat you to death for violating their beliefs.

    1. Velo, I think you have mistaken me for someone else.
      I never go out of the house unarmed.
      (It might not be a GUN, of course, but I always have some means of self-protection about me.)

  3. “Sometimes I wonder when I’m ever going to lose the childish impulse to react in the precise opposite way to officially-mandated stupidity.”

    Never, we all hope. Because there is no end to officially mandated stupidity.

  4. Yeah, OK…whatever.

    The thing about Los Angeles is that while it is very big itself, and spread out over a large area, there are dozens of enclaves within the perimeter that are other cities.

    Cities like Beverly Hills. Where they sell furs….

    So, if Los Angeles wants to give up the sales tax on high-priced luxury goods, for the sake of virtue-signalling, go for it.

    I am happily a native Los Angeleno, and even more happily not in Los Angeles, or California now. I was back there last week, and let me tell you, I’m EVEN HAPPIER to be an ex…
