I grew up in California and when I got married I moved out of the state. Except for a short lapse in sanity for about 6 months living in Riverside and working in Tustin in Southern California I haven't looked back. My parents still live in CA and so does Don's family. Therefore, we go and visit them at least once a year.
Now I think this would work except for the fact that so much fruit and produce gets in anyway, through uninspected cars, airplanes, and illegals coming in from the south. We have driven through this inspection station for years and there were several times when it was closed and you go right on through. Personally, I think this is a way to keep public (Union) employees employed.
What was really funny is that our inspection agent was Asian and stuttered. It was impossible to understand him. He saw our ice chest and said....."aaaaa yyyyyoooo c c c aaaa ry vvvveg-e-ttt-a-bbboes o ffffff-rrr-tt? I mmmus ch-ch-ch-chk cccccooola.
California......who has hijacked reality in this state? These inspections stations just confirm another government plan that doesn't work, gives high paying jobs to people how can't speak let alone be fluent in English, and funds it all with my (and your) money. What a hoot!
