Neuter Liberals?

If only we could get liberals classified as pets.

California's legislature is considering a bill that would require sterilization of all pets in the golden state.

“It’s a horrific bill,” said Maureen Hill-Hauch, executive director of Castleton, New York-based American Dog Owners Association, adding that enforcement of the bill in theory could wipe out California’s dog population.

The bill would require pet owners to spay and neuter their dogs and cats, or face a $500 fine for each animal.

The Democrat-led state Assembly narrowly approved the bill late on Wednesday. It now goes to the state Senate amid a flurry of legislation that must be passed by Friday.

Republicans in the minority in both chambers do not consider the bill a priority and say it is too intrusive. “It’s micromanaging,” said Republican Assemblyman Doug LaMalfa.

Okay, maybe we could try this with liberals. Actually, now that I think about it, they've actually started neutering themselves.
