Thread: Arizona has a ban on potlucks.

  1. #1

    Default Arizona has a ban on potlucks.

    They shouldn't be banned at all, for crying out loud.

    Here's what happens when poorly written laws meet jerk-ass neighbors. The state of Arizona's food regulations exempt certain common private social functions from having to comply with all the safety requirements. These are common in most states. But for some reason, the exemption for private noncommercial potlucks only applies to workplaces. It is actually illegal in the state of Arizona to have a private potluck at home. You cannot bring your own dip made from mixing a ranch dressing packet into a tub of cream cheese to the neighbor's Super Bowl party.

    One would imagine that the police and health departments probably don't go around looking for potlucks to bust up, and one would be correct. However, there's always that jerk. At Golden Acres Mobile Home Park in Apache Junction, one crank who somehow knew this one quirk in the law actually complained about community potlucks and got them shut down.

    Because of that jerk, now Arizona State Rep. Kelly Townsend (R-Mesa) now has to go through the work to get the law changed and pushed back through the legislature and signed by the governor. It is HB2341-"potlucks; regulation exemption." All the bill does is simply strike out the part of the potluck rule that says "that takes place in a workplace" (and also replaces all occurrences of "assure" with "ensure" in the food regulations).

    Because of the lawmaking process, it will probably take until at least summer until potlucks in Arizona become fully legal. So if you're one of those jerk neighbors in Arizona and the family down the street is playing loud music too late, keep an eye on when they've got a party and you're not invited. You know what to do.
    Based on the idea of natural rights, government secures those rights to the individual by strictly negative intervention, making justice costless and easy of access; and beyond that it does not go. The State, on the other hand, both in its genesis and by its primary intention, is purely anti-social. It is not based on the idea of natural rights, but on the idea that the individual has no rights except those that the State may provisionally grant him. It has always made justice costly and difficult of access, and has invariably held itself above justice and common morality whenever it could advantage itself by so doing.

    Good grief.

    Reminds me of the cops busting up a home barbecue because it was illegal for the smell to leave their yard.

    Old ladies around here call them Pitch Ins and if you show up and tell them they are banned they will probably stab you in the heart with a pair of scissors since it is not polite to shoot strangers

    I'm glad I'm not young, really. I don't think my soul can take much more.

    LOL! That's the truth. I was picturing the ladies at my mom's senior workout having a conniption fit over "Lunch and Learn" without the lunch. They don't give a $#@! about the learn part; they just go to one up each other on potato salad.
