I saw this on my Crime Page on Facebook and since California is in the news regarding Homelessness and the EPA etc, I thought it was a timely share. Let me say, this is all true. I have written in italics to comment.
In CA It's against the law for a restaurant to offer me a plastic straw but it's ok for Starbucks to serve drinks in a plastic cup and it's ok for me to use plastic Keurig coffee pods and buy tons of plastic water bottles.
I don't mind that I have to ask for a straw and I believe those who complain about this, are just complainers. HOWEVER, I don't get why they haven't banned plastic drinking bottles, Keurig pods, etc Both of which I do not use.
It’s against the law for a grocery store to give me a micro-thin plastic bag for free, but it’s okay for them to sell me a plastic bag from .10 a bag up to .25 that is 20 times as thick.
This is really crazy. For a few years now, we've been charged if we use a plastic grocery bag. I bring my own cloth bags or I will take the cart out to my car, without bags if I have forgotten to bring mine in. I refuse to pay money for these plastic bags that are quite sturdy and I would think, are harder to dispose of. I see these bags, in the rivers and creeks now. How stupid is that?
CA is going to fine citizens billions a year for not having health insurance and paying for their own medical care, but they are going to provide free health care/insurance for those in the country illegally.
Don't even get me started...
In CA we provide driver's license to people in the country illegally, and you can list your sex as “X”, but I have to bring my original birth certificate, social security card, and two utility bills to get my Real CA driver's license so I can use it to board a plane since the Federal government no longer recognizes regular CA licenses.
This is so true. I chose not to get my "real ID card" since my husband is retired military and as his spouse, I already have my military dependent card which is better than any stupid California "real ID card".
|Typical California Homeless Camp in my town|
It’s ok for a homeless person to build a house next to the river out of plywood and tarps on property they don't own, but I have to pull a permit and pay fees to have an inspection if I do something as simple as replacing a window on my own property, and pay to camp in a state park.
Remember when we were kids, we were taught to "Pack it in, Pack it out?" If they would do this, we wouldn't have these problems.
The so-called Homeless are not really innocent good people down on their luck, as many will try to tell you. Most of them are criminals due to California's AB 47
Proposition 47 was passed into law, with the November 4, 2014, California election. It requires that defendants are sentenced to misdemeanors, instead of felonies, for “non-serious, nonviolent crimes,” unless the defendant has prior convictions for murder, rape, certain sex offenses or certain gun crimes. This law is also retroactive, so it also requires that anyone currently serving a sentence for a felony of the included offenses (without prior serious or violent offenses) to be resentenced to a misdemeanor.
Under Proposition 47, the following crimes are now solely misdemeanors:
Shoplifting, or Attempted Shoplifting, where the value of property stolen does not exceed $950
Grand theft, where the value of the stolen property does not exceed $950
Receiving stolen property, where the value of the property does not exceed $950
Forgery, where the value of the forged check, bond or bill does not exceed $950
Fraud, or Writing a bad check, where the value of the fraudulent check, draft or order does not exceed $950
Possession of Methamphetamine; Possession of Controlled Substance; Possession of Concentrated Cannabis: A cannabis concentrate is highly potent tetrahydrocannabinol concentrated mass that is most similar in appearance to either honey or butter, which is why it is referred to or known as "honey oil" or "budder". Many "cook" this in their homes or RV's and have blown themselves up in the process.
Bottom line: NO CONSEQUENCES. They get a slap on the wrist and sent on their way.
In San Francisco, they provide free Safe Drug Centers for heroin addicts to shoot up under nurse supervision and provide new needles (also plastic), but it's going to be against the law for adults to Vape.
Don't get me wrong, Vaping is dangerous - but so is tobacco smoking and most importantly DRUGS!
In San Francisco, it's ok to crap on the street but it's against the law to spit.
I kid you NOT!
California requires immunizations for its citizens but not for illegal aliens, so a bunch of eradicated illnesses is coming back and they don't care about those either.
I know a few young, non-vaxer parents that have left California for Oregon due to this.
As a Californian, you would think I would be embarrassed by all of this. I am not. This has been going on for some time now and I am happy that it is finally getting national attention. It really bugs our California Politicians, which pleases me just fine.
