There are 200 State Senators and Representatives in Massachusetts. Only 33 are Republicans; the rest are Democrats. Massachusetts sends only Democrats to represent her in the US Senate and Congress. Massachusetts obviously likes being subject to the whims of the hardcore Left, which is its choice; but willfully becoming the toys of the power-hungry unbalanced has its price. Whenever Democrats gain such total power, they become increasingly dangerous and their lunatic streak comes bubbling to the fore.
Not surprisingly, the latest example of what Democrats will do to their subject victims comes from Massachusetts. A New Bedford Democrat has introduced a bill that would hand over the determination of what is and what is not proper and “acceptable” treatment of animals to private citizen PETA types.
As in all other states, animal cruelty is already a crime in Massachusetts. But of course, writing new freedom-restricting laws is seen as a “birth right” of liberals; so that hasn’t stopped a New Bedford State Senator from cranking out a new, more oppressive law.
This law would let private citizens watch how you train your dog and determine whether or not to sue you on behalf of the animal. If you own a farm, a PETA-type loony could stand at the edge of your land writing down what he/she didn’t like and haul you into court on behalf of your livestock.
One of these self-appointed “Livestock and wildlife lawyers” could watch you legally hunting on your own land and have you served with papers ordering you to defend yourself in court against charges of animal cruelty. Would anyone want to defend against animal cruelty charges in a state dripping with liberal Democrats?
Imagine having to pay for legal council in a lawsuit where the other side not only had endlessly deep pockets (bet on that), but where the judge in the case was appointed by loony liberal Democrats intent upon reasserting their power over us at every opportunity!
Not long ago, something like this could be laughed off as the ravings of the “kook fringe” of the Democrat Party. Those days are over. There is no “kook fringe” of the Democrat Party anymore. It’s just the Democrat Party showing us what it is.
