A Beneficial Border Fence

Are there any sane people in San Francisco?  Seriously, WTF is it about that city that makes the rest of California look conservative and intelligent by comparison?
Dog lovers have formed a political action committee to promote the interests of their four-footed friends, namely space to run free in one of the world’s largest urban national parks. And they are calling on mayoral candidates to defend their stands on canine affairs.
“We expect the dog vote to be a game-changer,” said Bruce Wolfe, president of DogPAC, which held a forum attended by several mayoral hopefuls Saturday.
A dog owner's PAC.  And some of the candidates are playing right into it:
“Making San Francisco a family friendly city means recognizing the multitude of ways in which we define families,” City Attorney Dennis Herrera says on his site. “And in the city of St. Francis, that includes dogs and companion animals.”
I love my dogs, and may even, in casual conversation, refer to them as 'family' - but to define a family as including dogs and companion animals?  GMAFB.

What color is the sky in the world inhabited by people that think dog waste trash cans and government mandated pet-friendly housing are the key issues in an election?  Apparently there are no concerns about crime, infrastructure or human public services in San Fran.

I have to wonder what DogPAC's position on spaying and neutering is, considering that San Fran is the city that tried to ban circumcision.

I've never been a fan of the fence idea for our nation's border.  If we want to restrict free passage from places with radically different ideals and values, we better start with fencing off California.

Gives new meaning to the phrase "going to the dogs."

I'm all for the idea of fencing off Mexifornia, but can we implement that plan AFTER the first of the new year when I'm out?
