Default When will it end

These assclowns know no bounds. It's bad enough the government tells me which light bulb I can have in my house, and I have to pay for health care for people that can't afford it, but now they want to get me from owning a monkey? Wtf? Who bans monkeys????

Michigan senator proposes ban on owning monkeys
POSTED: 11/09/13, 10:57 AM EST | UPDATED: 34 SECS AGO
LANSING (AP) New legislation in Lansing would ban private ownership of monkeys, apes and lemurs.

Sen. Rick Jones said this week that the average person doesn't have the necessary training or equipment to properly care for nonhuman primates. The Grand Ledge Republican's bill would apply going forward and allow current owners to keep their pets.

Jones cites a 2009 incident when a Connecticut woman was mauled and disfigured by her chimpanzee.

He says apes aren't companion animals and have no place in private residences. Jones also says diseases such as monkey pox and measles can be more easily transferred between humans and the animals.

The bill has been referred to the Senate Agriculture Committee.

I hope this doesn't pass I can't afford to transport my monkeys to Ohio to sell them.... maybe I can just pay the penalties and keep them... will there be a web site were I have to register them or an 1800 number to call. If I can't prove they are illegal will they get free care at vet and can I send them to college for free..... I don't understand how they will know on have them if they can't prove they are legal.

What about trunk monkeys?
And without monkeys, where are we going to find new elected officials?

I have a friend who actually has a pet monkey. I don't remember the name of it, but it is similar to a capuchin. It runs around his house and jumps from couch to table and all around like a lightning bolt. He payed $5000 for it from a lady in Tennessee who payed $10,000 for the thing.
