In direct defiance of President Obama’s order for as many Americans as possible to have some skin in the game, San Francisco will go ahead with a vote to ban circumcision:

A proposal to ban the circumcision of male children in San Francisco has been cleared to appear on the November ballot, setting the stage for the nation’s first public vote on what has long been considered a private family matter.

Things are coming to a head though, because sometimes even people in SF don’t like to get the shaft and be jerked around by cocky bureaucrats, so there’s a good chance the effort will peter out and go down:

But even in a city with a long-held reputation for pushing boundaries, the measure is drawing heavy fire. Opponents are lining up against it, saying a ban on a religious rite considered sacred by Jews and Muslims is a blatant violation of constitutional rights.

Let this be a lesson for the Frisco moonbats who never met a regulation or ban they didn’t like. Your government is running out of plastic bags and Happy Meals to ban and now they’ve got nowhere else to set their sights except foreskin traditions.

Who’s going to be the first brave soul to drive through SF with a “when circumcisions are outlawed only outlaws will have circumcisions” bumper sticker on his or her Prius?

    Your prose is just pure entertainment!!! That is just hysterical!!! I can't wait to see how the liberal media handles this one on the nightly news.

    I agree. No matter how depressing the news, Doug always has me laughing.

    "A proposal to ban the circumcision of male children"

    Misleading from the git go. Most of us were 'infants' ( not children ) at the time it was performed. ( As in I can't remember mine, how 'traumatic' could it have been? )

    And all this to what end? What are they 'basing' their case on? It's more sanitary for males, but still the PARENT'S choice! Why the preoccupation with wee willy's winky anyway? Just no envelope they aren't willing to push out there.

    I'd drive through SF with a sign reading, 'Antiochus IV Epiphanes is alive and well and running the city of San Francisco' if I thought for a moment anybody there would get the link.

    Groooaaaannnnn. A visceral image is worth a thousand euphemisms. Or something.

    Anyhow, where's the money your ma gave you for journalism school?

    "Groooaaaannnnn. A visceral image is worth a thousand euphemisms. Or something."

    Yeah I mean the whole sordid issue is enough to make a guy feel like he's passing a kidney stone. Snipped or otherwise? The real question, and I've asked this before, is how did we get from "Never trust the Government man…" to:

    Only the Government knows what is best for you! So basically when the WWII gen. was calling the shots, Nixon etc. were not to be trusted. But ever since the 60's gen. found their way into power, now Guv is 'cool' ( just like them! )

    What's next, "back alley circumcisions"? Jeez, don't these people ever give up?

    "What's next, "back alley circumcisions"? Jeez, don't these people ever give up?"

    Do you s'pose any of these morons know why circumcision was actually practiced a thousand years BEFORE Abraham? It's a health issue, geniuses – prevents a lifetime of infections and problems. Nah. Never mind.
