    I hate to burst your bubble but... I am in South Orange County and bought a dozen jumbo eggs yesterday for $2.29. I am sure you can find eggs in the 5 to 6 dollar range but they would be chocolate and filled with bourbon.

    Who wouldn't want to give chickens so much room. California should simply require egg manufactures to properly label their eggs as free range, or organic, or laid by chickens given plenty of elbow room etc. Then let consumers decide.

    Why be a nanny state?

    Turns out I prefer full organic, free range eggs. One of my little luxuries in life. But that isn't the question.

    The question is whether Cali is and should be subject to the InterState Commmerce clause of the United States constitution.

    Ask yourself if Utah should be able to ban the sale of products that were produced in a closed shop rather than under right to work laws.

    The fact that I dislike labor unions while love unions isn't relevant. What is important is the constitution questions of how much any State should be able to dictate labor or other practices in different States by presuming to close off markets.

    Free range chickens and right to work laws both trigger the same question and should result in the same answer.

    States rights have limits even for those of us who consistently and honestly support that principle, rather than pulling it out only when convenient.

    Utah cannot properly force right to work laws on other States and Cali cannot properly force free range chicken laws on its fellow States.

    California pays $5 to $6 per dozen for eggs. I much prefer Utah's $1 to $2 a dozen.

    Yeah, well, history shows that the GOP and religious leaders tend to ignore scripture and compassionate advice when it come to making a profit.
