Wow, another warning
Now THATS gonna scare them.

“As I heard one local politician say we dont care about the constitution.”
And with that I’m disappointed that we don’t hear about all the ‘accidents’ local politicians are having in certain states.
Wow cheeseburger Barr. A warning that they “could be” in violation. I’ll bet they are almost perspiring over that pansy ass threat.

I found a Great
Parking spot at
La Jolla Cove about

Finding a spot was

This is ridiculous as nobody is doing anything but giving the loss of liberty lip service. Our rights are gone and it’s obvious.
