California’s foie gras ban upheld

One of the country’s most contentious legal battles has been swirling around a subject you might not have expected. Since 2012, California has been enforcing a 2004 ban on the sale and production of foie gras — a French delicacy whose method of production animal rights groups consider inhumane. Chefs and trade groups in the state have been fighting against the ban, which was just upheld once again on Monday. If you’ve never had it before, foie gras (which means “fatty liver”) is large, butte...

Foie gras ban in California stands after court battle

The foie gras ban in California continues after six years of court battles. Earlier this week the U.S. Supreme Court announced it would not hear a challenge to the state’s 2004 ban on the production and sale of foie gras, leaving the 2017 ruling untouched. Foie gras, which means “fatty liver”, is butter-rich duck or goose liver that has been especially fattened, and is a popular delicacy in French cuisine. Traditionally, it is seared and made into pate, however, to produce the luxury food produ...

American towns survive by fining poor people, and use debtors' prisons to make them pay

The Ferguson uprising was triggered by the police assassination of Michael Brown, but even before that killing, the city was a powder-keg, thanks to the practice of financing the city government by levying fines on the poor and putting those who couldn't pay in debtors' prison to encourage the rest to cough up. The US Supreme Court has repeatedly ruled that debtors' prisons are unconstitutional and has banned the practice of imprisoning indigent people who can't pay fines for petty offenses...

A Brief History of US Money

Continental Congress in 1775 issued the Continental Currency. The US dollar was created as the standard unit. The term dollar came from the Spanish dollar. By 1778 the Continental Currency had lost about 5/6th of its original value. By 1780 the Continental has lost 39/40th of its face value. By May 1781 the Continental Currency was worthless.
