The People’s Republic of California, which has already banned plastic grocery bags and waged war on drinking straws is now poised to go after… receipts.
AB 161, as introduced into the California Legislature Grand Soviet, would require:
“[O]n and after January 1, 2022, a proof of purchase for the retail sale of food, alcohol, or other tangible personal property, or for the provision of services, provided to a consumer, as defined, by a business to be provided only in electronic form, unless the consumer requests that the proof of purchase be provided in paper form. The bill would specify that the first and 2nd violations of these provisions would result in a notice of violation and any subsequent violation would be an infraction punishable by a fine of $25 for each day the business is in violation, but not to exceed an annual total of $300. The provisions would be enforced by the same enforcement officers authorized to enforce the California Retail Food Code. By creating a new crime and imposing additional enforcement duties on local health agencies, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program.”
World War II Germans soldiers really likes transvestitism…
This man found so many pictures of cross-dressing Nazi soldiers from WWII that he had just to further investigate the topic.

Another “quick takes” on items where there is too little to say to make a complete article, but is still important enough to comment on.
The focus this time: If the government can whittle down your rights, you don’t have rights.
First, a little mood music:
Demonstrating the importance of denying anti-gun leadership concomitantly in both houses of Congress and in the Presidency, Speaker “San Fran Nan” Pelosi and company have introduced HR8, which would “require a background check for every firearm sale“.
“HR8 requires that loans, gifts, and sales of firearms be processed by a gun store. The same fees, paperwork, and permanent record-keeping apply as to buying a new gun from the store. If you loan a gun to a friend without going to the gun store, the penalty is the same as for knowingly selling a gun to a convicted violent felon. Likewise, when the friend returns the gun, another trip to the gun store is necessary, upon pain of felony.
“A clever trick in HR8 effectively bans handguns for persons 18-to20.
“The bill has some narrow exemptions. The exemptions do not cover stalking victims. Also excluded are farming and ranching, sharing guns on almost all public and private lands, NS storing guns with friends while on vacation. The limited exemption for family excludes first cousins and in-laws. The minuscule exemption for self-defense excludes stalking victims.
“The bill authorizes unlimited fees to be imposed by regulation.”

The environmental movement has been less about science than it has been about an apocalyptic religious notion for half a century more or less.
Nothing makes that clearer than a true believer sacrificing himself to his god Gaia as in imploration for others to engage in zealous insanity!
“I was not at all pleased by the way that the New York Times’s annual “The Lives they Lived”–obituaries for notables who passed away in 2018 — depicted the death of David Buckel, a radical environmentalist who killed himself by self-immolation to benefit the earth.”
