Please sir, I want some more, is no longer a sentiment just for Oliver Twist in the orphanage. A new law in California limits how much water can be used by each household. Now their showers, how many flushes, and how often they can do their laundry will be under the watchful eye of the state government.
This from politicians who have pushed policies creating homeless and drug abuse crises throughout the state. They have now decided to clamp down on the use of the most basic needs of civilized living.
As the blog Zero Hedge put it, its now against the law to do laundry and shower on the same day in the Sunshine State, and theyre not exaggerating. Under the guise of addressing climate change, the new bill rations water to a degree that makes it impossible to maintain a healthy home environment.
Perhaps the state wants everyone to feel like the drug addicts living in Californias ever-expanding homeless tent cities?
Zero Hedge reported, Assembly Bill 1668 is where it gets personal. This establishes limits on indoor water usage for every person in California and the amount allowed will decrease even further over the next 12 years. The bill, until January 1, 2025, would establish 55 gallons per capita daily as the standard for indoor residential water use, beginning January 1, 2025, would establish the greater of 52.5 gallons per capita daily or a standard recommended by the department and the board as the standard for indoor residential water use, and beginning January 1, 2030, would establish the greater of 50 gallons per capita daily or a standard recommended by the department and the board as the standard for indoor residential water use

Does anyone think that the law makers will abide by the restriction?
Saner than California states are announcing a ten-year delay on voting access to ALL California refugees.
Build a border wall along California’s eastern side NOW! We do need the hoards of retards heading East. They created this fecal stained mess they can live in it
Problem is the desert portions of the state. They stole water from elsewhere so people could live in a f***in desert (see Sam Kinison). That being said nobody tells me where or when I can take a shower flush a toilet or wash my car.
No problem. There’s a Starbucks down the street. I’ll just pee, poop and shower there.
Atlas shrugged teaches us that "I can manage because I'm clever" works only for a while. The destroyers just keep turning the screws. Get out or get crushed.
Smart electrical meters allow them to monitor your activities. They don’t even need roving bands of water cops to do it, just a sever farm and an algorithm. Welcome to a brave new world.
A cancerous tumor is bursting and will infect the rest of the national body.
Oh my, the California liberals will love this, something to sink their gritty liberal teeth into, which will also give them something to talk about in Starbucks.
Heading for mandatory outhouses.
When you don’t believe in a right to life, a right to the things that maintain life doesn’t exist.
When the environment has more rights that you do, you suffer at the whims of nature.
Didn’t I read that it’s legal to poop and pee in the street there?
I can’t help but wonder how the rich folks with large lawns and gardens to water are being treated.
Seriously, when I was growing up in the fifties we had a well. There were 9 of us in an old farmhouse. We got by on a lot less than 50 gallons each per day.
its now against the law to do laundry and shower on the same day in the Sunshine State,
I thought Florida was the Sunshine State?
Me too, that doesn’t make sense.
