The Pig Admendment....

That's right. Floridians rejoice! The lovely folks of our state have come up with yet another way to make us the laughing stock of the nation. They want us to amend our State Constitution so that it would be against the State Constitution for pig farmers to use pig gestation boxes.

My first question is this: Why would this be an amendment???

I mean come on. A law? That's conceivable. It's why we have laws. To regulate little things such as this. To amend the constitution means that those who are lobbying for this, couldn't make the legislature care about this. So they decide to do an amendment, because they believe Florida voters are dumb. Of course I do have to wonder if they might be onto something here, but I digress. Just the concept of this amendment boggles the mind. I mean would we amend the US Constitution to require all cow's milk to be homogenized? No. That's covered under federal laws and regulations. Why would we want this attached to our State's Constitution?

I can hear it now, "Oh? Your from Florida? Isn't that the state with the pigs in the constitution?"
