Here in California, Governor Brown has signed approximately 800 new laws and regulations. We cannot buy the light bulbs of our choice. We cannot purchase toilets that flush properly. We must install a conservation filter in showers which turn a powerful spray into a pathetic dribble. Now, when I go to my local grocery store, convenient plastic bags have been banned. And there’s a 10 cent tax on paper bags.
In CA public schools, children as young as kindergarteners can now choose which bathroom, shower or locker to use. Bathrooms, showers and lockers are, ahem, gender neutral.
Seraphic Secret wonders: Does this mean that a boy can choose to go to a girl’s bathroom on Monday because he feels like a girl, and then on Tuesday it’s into the boy’s bathroom because he now feels like a boy? Is there a statute of limitations on gender identity? We assume not. After all, it’s all about how you feel. Physical facts have been relegated to the realm of metaphysics.
The law also require students be allowed to participate in sports programs as the gender to which they identify.
We can look forward to some pretty dopey sports events, hundreds of thousands of deeply traumatized children, and endless litigation.
This new law is institutionalized child abuse.
The minimum wage in CA is also rising, which will create more unemployment and higher costs for services. These costs which will be passed on directly to the consumer. In short, the income inequality Democrats kvetch about is caused by government.
A raft of new anti-gun laws go into effect here in California. Liberals will not rest until the Second Amendment is neutered thorough endless regulations.
“The beauty of the Second Amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it.”
Make no mistake about it, Democrats seek to centralize all power in government. And they will not stop until everything that belongs to you, is under their control.
“They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”
Of course, ObamaCare, continues to cruelly disrupt the lives of millions of Americans, and to shatter their financial security.
New York’s small-business owners, seniors and doctors are among the big losers as President Obama’s prescription for health-insurance reform takes effect.
The National Federation of Independent Businesses, an organization that represents nearly 11,000 entrepreneurs across the state, says it has yet to find a single member whose health-care costs are going down under the ObamaCare program, whose plans took effect New Year’s Day.
Meanwhile, an “overwhelming majority” of businesses canvassed by the group has reported increases in their insurance premiums, said Mike Durant, the NFIB’s New York director.
Michael Kennedy, who runs two family-owned dog-grooming salons near Albany, said changes to his cut-rate insurance coverage mandated by ObamaCare had more than doubled the cost, from $132.99 to $325.92 a month per person.
And when he checked the cost of buying an ObamaCare policy instead, it was “basically the same price, or even more,” he said.
Kennedy, 46, said that he and his wife clear only about $60,000 a year from their Pink Dog Parlor and Resort business, and that paying the new, higher premiums will be “a huge challenge.”
“It’s like another 100 dogs we need to groom,” he said.
