I am sure the elected door knobs don’t want any more in the city running for their office spots.

But those idiots elected them.

Seems much like what happens in California then, the rest of the US.

Hmmmmm, I can see an opportunity to open “Smoke Easy” establishments. Basically, Speakeasies for “eeeeeeeevil” smokers.

the militant anti smokers..would be certain to see it was denied a PERMIT to exist...

actually there is a smokers club in nearby Mil Valley but people in San Rafael wouldnt likely walk there for a leisurely smoke.

the anti smoke attitude around here is truly INSANE. ..I-N-S-A-N-E

Door knobs serve a useful purpose. Obama, not so much.

“Basically, the idea is that you try to make environments that are as universally usable by any part of the population.”

in other words, add huge costs to 100 per cent of the population, that affects only a tiny percentage, and may not even affect them at all.

Claiming your city an Obama free zone would instantly raise real estate values.

Screw em’.

My wolf dog prefers handles, but knobs don’t discourage him.

From 1978-81, I was in Uncle Sam’s Army and serving in West Germany. When we spoke of our eventual return to the continental US, there was a term of reference, “The Land of the Round Doorknobs”, because all doors in Germany had lever handles. At the time, I just thought of it as being that “Euro-style” like we experience at IKEA today.

Could it be they hate door knobs because door knobs have a much higher mental capacity than they do, and they simply want to eliminate the competition?
