California Officially Comes to Its Senses
California is a leader when it comes to facing down potential threats to human and animal life, whether that’s becoming the first U.S. state to ban single-use plastic bags back in 2014 or being one of the few places in the country where it’s hard to find a plastic straw.

But last year the state went a step too far after a Los Angeles judge upheld a statute that required coffee shops from Blue Bottle to Starbucks to put a cancer warning label on their cups under Proposition 65 or face fines of $2,500 per incident. All this came after coffee retailers were unable to prove that coffee contains only a negligible amount of the carcinogen acrylamide.

The state has, however, finally come to its senses. Eight years after this all began, California’s Office of Administrative Law has issued an official Prop 65 exemption for coffee. Hallelujah.

More than 90 coffee retailers from McDonald’s to mom-and-pop chains are still facing a lawsuit alleging that they sold coffee knowing it contained a carcinogen, but with this news, the lawsuit’s days are likely numbered.

:rofl:

Nope I can definitely say based on recent CARB inquires that California is in no danger of ever coming to it senses.

Prop 65 is just the tip of the insanity iceberg that California is heading full steam towards. :coffee:

Trump’s tax returns required under new California election law
SACRAMENTO —

President Trump will be ineligible for California’s primary ballot next year unless he discloses his tax returns under a state law that immediately took effect Tuesday, an unprecedented mandate that is almost certain to spark a high-profile court fight and might encourage other states to adopt their own unconventional rules for presidential candidates.

The law, signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom on his final day to take action and passed on a strict party-line vote in the Legislature, requires all presidential candidates to submit five years of income tax filings. They must do so by late November in order to secure a spot on California’s presidential primary ballot in March. State elections officials will post the financial documents online, although certain private information must first be redacted.

-convicted felon & offender released from custody now = "formerly incarcerated person" or a "justice-involved person" or a “returning resident.”
-drug addicts & substance abusers now = “a person with a history of substance use.”
-juvenile delinquent now = a “young person with justice system involvement,” or a “young person impacted by the juvenile justice system.”

So of your car is broken into in San Fran, you will be “a person who has come in contact with a returning resident who was involved with the justice system and who is currently under supervision with a history of substance use.”

A Sacramento business owner is moving because she can no longer take having to clean shit and piss from the front of her business each day all because the local government won’t (or can’t) do anything to help her...
Salon owner Elizabeth Novak says she’s moving her business out of Sacramento, California because she can no longer deal with the capital city’s homeless problem.

Monday, in an interview with Fox News, Novak discussed a viral video she made calling out Governor Gavin Newsom (D) and explaining how she has to “clean up the poop and pee off my doorstep” left by the homeless:

“I’ve had a business in downtown Sacramento for 15 years. I just want to tell you what happens when I get to work: I have to clean up the poop and the pee off of my doorstep.

“I have to politely ask people, who I care for, I care for these people who are homeless, to move their tent. So, I want to know what you’re going to do for us.”

This is just the first result of the police not policing anymore

Just wait... it will get worse

Eventually they won’t even respond to “dead body on my lawn” calls

And why should they?

California lawmakers pass state-wide rent control...
Economists from both the left and the right have a well-established aversion to rent control, arguing that such policies ignore the message of rising prices, which is to build more housing. Studies in San Francisco and elsewhere show that price caps often prompt landlords to abandon the rental business by converting their units to owner-occupied homes. And since rent controls typically have no income threshold, they have been faulted for benefiting high-income tenants.

“Rent control is definitely having a moment across the country,” said Jim Lapides, a vice president at the National Multifamily Housing Council, which opposes such restrictions. “But we’re seeing folks turn to really shortsighted policy that will end up making the very problem worse.”

How many investors will now step in to build the needed new housing, knowing their investments are restricted...

1) You should be able to pee in public places as long as you're not wagging your dick around for all to see. Freedom! Be a man!

2) How much does it cost to prosecute a public urination case or any of the other "quality of life" crimes as the article describes them? Let's throw someone in jail for a month for camping in public. :? Or you could tackle the homeless problem by...wait for it...providing homeless housing...with toilets. It's a win-win.

A city in Alberta (maybe Lethbridge or Medicine Hat?) discovered this a few years back and virtually eliminated homelessness and saved money by building beds.

Is it easier to do that in places that are super cold? I mean, homelessness and getting people into homeless housing is an easier problem in places like Medicine Hat as compared to a San Fran or LA simply because of the extreme cold outside. Of course the homeless will want to be indoors in those cases. In LA, you could conceivably be outside all year and it wouldn't be a worry. Are homeless shelters and housing at full capacity in San Fran and LA?

And how many of LA/SF homeless came from some shithole cold/wet weather state/province that DIDN'T offer shelters, so they migrated to places that the weather is decent year-round?

I know a good portion of Phoenix's homeless are transplants.

Maybe if the good Christian people elsewhere would devote resources of their own they could help. But easier to pawn them off on other states then get to act superior.

Again, how do you know that they aren't offering shelters? You seem to be making a pretty big leap of thought here in the rush to castigate Christians as well as people who live in states where it gets cold. If a person wants to sleep outside, aren't they going to naturally go where it's warm anyway?
