Ah, it’s springtime in Frank Principi’s district in Woodbridge, the flowers are in bloom, the smell of freshly cut grass fills the air, and the sounds of chickens echo in the street. Let’s take a look…
Huh? Chickens? You bet. Here’s some spotted today.
Yes, chicken farming in Woodbridge’s residential areas is a popular way to help deal with the lack of available jobs in the construction industry and a slowdown in day labor work.
With a nice flock of yummy chickens, your dinner is never more than a few feet away.
No need to do to the store, just kill ‘em, clean ‘em, pluck ‘em, and put them in your handy backyard kitchen. Just make sure you don’t burn down the chicken coop when doing so.
It’s a lot easier than driving to the store and paying two bucks a pound or more for chickens, especially when gas is so expensive and your tags are dead, which makes driving potentially hazardous with that pesky Rule of Law Resolution in force.
This is the cultural phenomenon that Frank Principi seems to be interested in protecting with his desire to gut the Rule of Law Resolution. Driving with dead tags like this is a non-arrestable offense, and Frank’s brilliant idea here is to protect someone from having their immigration status questioned if a police officer happens to notice a vehicle like this driving around with temporary tags that expired more than five months ago. Yeah, Frank, let’s just give illegal aliens who break even more of our laws a pass here.
And as far as the residential chicken farming goes, I understand that Neighborhood Services had been contacted about this and did absolutely nothing. Keep up the good work, Frank. I’m sure your constituents are really pleased with you.
