Foie Gras, Trans Fats and Caviar with Jane Black

Now, in addition to the proposed ban on foie gras (proposed by Vegetarian Assemblyman Michael Panter), Vegetarian Senator Ellen Karcher has proposed banning trans fats in restaurants. It is time for radical vegetarian extremist legislators to stop trying to mother us all and tell us what to eat. The guys go off.

If you live in NJ, call you legislators and let them know how you feel. You can use the state Legislature website at http://www.njleg.state.nj.us to email your legislator directly or to find his/her contact information.
