California Nightmare

Dana Mathewson

In the past few years we've often heard the Anchor State of the Left Coast referred to as The Peoples' Republic of California. In case there are one or two of you who have just moved in from, oh, say, Lithuania and don't understand the reference, the following blog post from Power Line may help you:

A little noticed detail in Santa Barbara’s recent drive to criminalize plastic straws, which culminated in the Santa Barbara city council taking testimony from a nine-year-old about the planetary menace, has come to light in recent days. During that council session, councilman Jesse Dominguez said to following in response to citizens who asked "what’s next?”:

"Unfortunately, common sense is just not common. We have to regulate every aspect of people’s lives.”

And don't you love it when a politician tries to say "Well, you didn't understand what I was trying to say?" Yeah, sure, Skippy, We totally understood you, and that's your problem. We hope the voters of Santa Barbara remember this at election time and hang this around your neck like a dead albatross!

I wish they'd included the testimony from the nine-year-old, but I have the suspicion it wouldn't have been much different from the councilmember's comments.

1 Reminds me of Groucho Marx; this is so simple a five year old child could understand it (go find me a five year old child - I can't make heads or tails of this.)
