From the Big Government loving Republik Of California, we see that minor things will get you in big trouble
(Fox News) A Northern California woman is facing potential jail time after she joining a Facebook food group and sold some of the meals she cooked online, which county officials say is illegal.
San Joaquin County officials cited Mariza Reulas, of Stockton, for selling her signature dish ceviche over the internet. Reulas now faces a trial and possible jail time for her sales.
“It was just like unreal that they were saying you could face up to a year in jail,” said Reulas.
According to Fox 40 Sacramento, Reulas joined a Facebook group called 209 Food Spot where people from Stockton can shared recipes, organized potlucks and occasionally sold what they cooked.
This is an America where law enforcement shows up to shut down lemonade stands run by children.
On Dec. 3, 2015, someone contacted Reulas online and asked her for her ceviche. That person turned out to be an undercover San Joaquin County investigator in a sting operation to nab those selling food without special permits. Reulas and around a dozen others were cited for two misdemeanors for “operating a food facility and engaging in business without a permit.”
You read that correctly. The county actually ran a sting on an online food group, apparently having solved all other crime in the county. Ms Reulas refused to take a plea deal which would put her on probation for, get this, 3 years. For selling food.
Now, you can understand the prohibition to a degree, being an attempt to safeguard people. But, up to a year in jail? Seriously? She should plead the Comey Exclusion, in that she might have been extremely careless, but there was no intent.
Let’s put this into perspective. Hillary committed perjury, she transmitted information that ran the gamut from sensitive State Dept information all the way up to the most classified national secrets, she had her maid (with no security clearance) print them out, and her server was most likely hacked. And so much more. Then there’s all the Clinton Foundation shenanigans.
Huma Abedin, a part of all the server and Foundation shenanigans, signed a form saying she turned in all her State Dept. material. Then 650k emails were found on an unsecured computer owned by her pervert husband. No charges.
All the others inside the Clinton circle, who lied and were a part of everything? No charges.
Yet, this peon woman faces a year in jail for selling food. John Edwards was right, there are two Americas. There’s the political aristocracy, which pretty much gets away with everything, and then there’s the rest of us.
