California’s state Assembly has overwhelmingly passed a pro-LGBTQ bill that would ban the sale or distribution of materials related to “conversion therapy.” It would make it an unlawful business practice to engage in any “transaction intended to result or that results in the sale or lease of goods or services to any consumer” aimed at “sexual orientation change efforts with an individual.”


Supporters of the bill deny claims that it could lead to the state banning the sale of Bibles, which describe homosexuality as a sin that Christians should abstain from. But opponents say it’s written in such a vague way that it could be stretched to do that. And frankly, claims by California leftists that they would never stretch a pro-gay rights law to deny religious freedom are as hollow as the fake Matterhorn at Disneyland.

As a protest to the state's strict immigration policies, city employees (except for police officers investigating a crime) are not allowed to travel to Arizona.

Advertisements in San Francisco cannot "promote the use of firearms or advocate any violent action." The poster for The Other Guy had all the weapons removed just for San Francisco's Muni system last summer.
And yet, firearms, violent chases, and wholesale mayhem is promoted in movies made down in Los Angeles.

The hunters I know like getting out into the woods and going out on their own two feet, but this law just goes to show that there's no limits to what some people will try to get away with.

Kalifornia to collect cow farts!
Kalifornia Senate bill 1383 states in great detail collecting biogasses and pipelining them across the state or other states to be burned in place of fossil fuel. (Read "cow farts")
Included in this is the following:

(d) (1) (A) No later than January 1, 2018, the state board, in consultation with the commission and the energy commission, shall establish energy infrastructure development and procurement policies needed to encourage dairy biomethane projects to meet the goal identified pursuant to paragraph (1) of subdivision (b).

(B) The state board shall develop a pilot financial mechanism to reduce the economic uncertainty associated with the value of environmental credits, including credits pursuant to the Low-Carbon Fuel Standard regulations (Subarticle 7 (commencing with Section 95480) of Title 17 of the California Code of Regulations) from dairy-related projects producing low-carbon transportation fuels. The state board shall make recommendations to the Legislature for expanding this mechanism to other sources of biogas.

(2) No later than January 1, 2018, the commission, in consultation with the state board and the department, shall direct gas corporations to implement not less than five dairy biomethane pilot projects to demonstrate interconnection to the common carrier pipeline system. For the purposes of these pilot projects, gas corporations may recover in rates the reasonable cost of pipeline infrastructure developed pursuant to the pilot projects.

The “Hands Free” Law. This is another example of government gone wild. AB1785 prescribes driver behavior so severely that in and of itself, I believe it will cause more accidents — and more deaths. Not only must the phone be dash mounted — meaning you’ll have a permanent distraction right in front of you — but you may not text, take photos or video, or enter GPS destinations while driving. Fat chance of stopping those activities with a mere $20 fine. The bill does stipulate that “the only time a driver is allowed to touch the device is when he or she is activating or deactivating a “feature or function.” However, that process should only involve a “single swipe or tap of the driver’s finger,” according to the bill,” mynewsla.com reports. How about “hands off” my phone instead of an unenforceable “hands free” law?

Kalifornia SB 40 would update references to certain categories of persons and additionally would require instruction in social sciences to include a study of the role and contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans, persons with disabilities, and members of other cultural groups, to the development of California and the United States.

Existing law prohibits instruction or school sponsored activities that promote a discriminatory bias because of race, sex, color, creed, handicap, national origin, or ancestry. Existing law prohibits the State Board of Education and the governing board of any school district from adopting textbooks or other instructional materials that contain any matter that reflects adversely upon persons because of their race, sex, color, creed, handicap, national origin, or ancestry.

This bill would revise the list of characteristics included in these provisions by referring to race or ethnicity, gender, religion, disability, nationality, and sexual orientation, or other characteristic listed as specified.

Existing law prohibits a governing board of a school district from adopting instructional materials that contain any matter reflecting adversely upon persons because of their race, color, creed, national origin, ancestry, sex, handicap, or occupation, or that contain any sectarian or denominational doctrine or propaganda contrary to law.

This bill would revise the list of characteristics included in this provision to include race or ethnicity, gender, religion, disability, nationality, sexual orientation, and occupation, or other characteristic listed as specified.

Existing law requires that when adopting instructional materials for use in the schools, governing boards of school districts shall include materials that accurately portray the role and contributions of culturally and racially diverse groups including Native Americans, African Americans, Mexican Americans, Asian Americans, European Americans, and members of other ethnic and cultural groups to the total development of California and the United States.

This bill would revise the list of culturally and racially diverse groups to also include Pacific Islanders, lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans, and persons with disabilities.

they've been given the green light to try again to secede from the union, they have to get something like 485,000 signatures on a petition to get it on the ballot, then it has to pass, then they have to vote on it again, a year later

there's a proposition to split California into 2 states, the coast cities and then the rest of California
New California is already in the process, now they have to prove they can govern themselves

a new proposition has been rolled out to split California into 3 states, saying it's too big to govern effectively

talk about split personalities lol

The California Assembly discussed Thursday a bill that would replace Abraham Lincoln or George Washington’s birthday with International Socialist Workers’ Day as a paid holiday.

In San Jose and Sunnyvale it is illegal for grocery stores to provide plastic bags.

You may only throw a frisbee at the beach in Los Angeles County, CA with the lifeguard’s permission.

As of Jan. 1st. 1998 All Californians are guaranteed sunshine.

No vehicle without a driver may exceed 60 miles per hour.

It's illegal to rob a birds nest from a public cemetery.

No more than 6 people are allowed to stay in a hotel room where payment has been paid for just 1 person.

If robbing a bank, shooting at the teller with a water gun is prohibited.

On some beaches it is still illegal for females to surf.

In Chico, CA, it's against the law to bowl on the sidewalk.

Permanent markers cannot be sold anywhere within the city limits of Fresno.

In Arcadia CA, peacocks have the right of way when crossing a street, including your driveway.

In Fresno, it's against the law to annoy a lizard in a city park.

In Blythe CA, you are not allowed to wear cowboy boots unless you own at least 2 cows.

And yes I checked these and other laws like this are still on the records.

"Are we in competition to become the laughingstock of the United States?"

A Democrat-introduced bill in California would get rid of either George Washington or Abraham Lincoln's birthday as a holiday and designate May 1 as “International Workers’ Day." International Socialist Workers' Day, or "May Day" had been observed in countries under Communist rule and was an official holiday of the Soviet Union.
