Fiona Ma Reminds Us That She Is a Total Buzzkill

Not even Santa can stop Fiona Ma from pooping all over your party
We have to wonder what state Assemblywoman Fiona Ma's idea of a good time is, considering she has been a total killjoy this past year, pushing legislation that bans all types of good fun. And in case you have forgotten the new rules, the San Francisco Democrat issued a reminder that starting Jan. 1, 2012 you won't be able to buy alcohol in the self-checkout line at the store.

The bill -- sponsored by Mothers Against Drunk Driving -- means if you want to buy alcohol at the grocery store, you will have to wait in line -- and show your ID to a real person, proving you are of legal age. While the bill is meant to stop teens from sneaking alcohol through the loosely monitored self-checkout line, it puts a real damper on things for those of us who need to move quickly to get to the party.

On the bright side, the new law won't go into effect until after New Year's Eve.

A few months ago when Ma introduced the bill, along with other legislation to tighten regulations on tattoos and raves, we gave her a call to ask her why the hell she has to be such a wet blanket. She assured us she likes to have fun, but didn't really elaborate (although we do know she like to attend Lady Gaga concerts).

"There's nothing wrong with a minor inconvenience to prevent alcohol from getting into the wrong hands and to keep our kids and roads safe," Ma says. She then tells us something that our mother might say: "It's better to be safe than sorry."

Just because your last name is "Ma," doesn't mean you have to act like one!

So stupid. Everytime I've ever purchased alcohol at self checkout, I've gotten an alert that required an "actual person" to come check my ID before proceeding. Does she buy her own groceries? This was just an ignorant piece of legislation aimed at getting brownie points with a lobbying group.

I assume she has never been to a grocery store. To buy beer at self-check out, you have to show your ID to the person supervising. The machine won't process the purchase without that approval.

Someone get this princess out of her tower!

It's a solution that won't work for a problem that didn't exist.

That's because she's turn her back on her culture, identity and heritage become a white man's whore.  As a result she feels the need to compete with white women and over compensate so she can be viewed and treated as one of them but sadly all she'll ever be is a twinkie.

" it puts a real damper on things for those of us who need to move quickly to get to the party."Really?  Are you serious?  God forbid that you plan ahead instead of having to "move quickly to get to the party"!  Geezus!

But why should you have to?  Just so we don't have to hold stores accountable for selling alcohol to minors?

That sort of thinking makes ZERO sense.

Not to worry.... the party will still be going on when you and Erin arrive!  You won't be missed that much!  :-)
