Dancing With California Fruit Police:
No there were no actual dances. Truth is, our encounter was more like driving away than dancing. But it’s been a crazy week none the less – We’ve been on the road for a month working on a new educational documentary for my business called PHOTOGRAPHICS. The family and I needed to cross through California on our way out of Reno as we headed towards Washington and home.
My brother informed me that there would be one of these fruit checkpoint station across the border. But being the liberty loving guy I am, I decided it was my duty to stand my ground. That meant not only would I not avoid the area I needed to go our of fear of tyranny, I would also refuse anything that violated our Constitutional rights.
The result is the video you see above. I don’t need to spell it all out. How I handle these guys and why is made pretty clear in the video and it started quite a conversation, getting over 50,000 views in the first week.
While some have tried to make it so, this isn’t really a discussion about agriculture. This is a discussion about liberty. The rest of the country grows their crops just fine without violating the highest laws of our land. I expect California to find a way to do the same. It’s that simple.
“When injustice becomes law, resistance becomes duty” — Thomas Jefferson
“Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety” – Benjamin Franklin.
The framers did not forgot to make exception in the Constitution for fruit.
