City of Sacramento, another Leftist haven

Sacramento, City ofThat should be a surprise to no one, considering Sacramento is home to the Fornicalia Bill Mill and is the veritable Belly of the Beast, governmentally-speaking.

That the City of Sacramento wants to get rid of cars in the downtown area should, resultingly, be no shock either.  That they’re starting with jacking up the rates of parking and making parking itself more difficult goes with the Leftist territory.

Except for one teensy-weensy problem: those evil capitalists who have businesses downtown.

You know, like, eh, they have to make, like, money, like profit, dude?  You know?


Proposed downtown parking changes met with concerns

Though this is a video, it indicates that the City of Sacramento wants to increase parking rates from $1.25 to $1.75 an hour.  The city wants drivers to move from on-street parking to off-street parking in garages.

The city says it is “trying to make this city more transit-oriented, trying to get people out of using their cars for everything they do every day.”

A proposed program called SpotZone will let people manage parking with their smartphones.  If they exceed the meter’s time, they can pay a higher rate instead of getting a ticket.

In a one hour zone that regularly costs $1.75 an hour, the second hour would jump to $3, with each additional hour costing $3.75.

Of course, that doesn’t do much if you can’t afford the higher base rates or the higher adjusted rates or the ticket itself.

But it’s not all bad news; the City of Sacramento also plans to expand its metered parking hours and days to include Sundays, holidays and special events.  It also plans to meter spots until 2 AM.

In many areas, places unmetered would magically become metered, become zoned as restrictive or there would be parking time limits.

The other good news?

If approved, the city believes meter revenue will increase by 10 to 25 percent.

The truth is, the City of Sacramento already makes $5.5 MILLION dollars on its parking fees.

The City of Sacramento complains about people coming into their city to park.  But who comes to the downtown area during the day to park?  That’s right, people from surrounding Sacramento County, people from surrounding counties (plural) and people throughout the state who are forced, by various ways, rules, regulations and mandates to do business with the city itself, the county itself or the State of California itself.  They have no choice.  That is where the seats of those various forms of govenrment exist.

Yippee!  The City of Sacramento will assist in making sure businesses in the downtown area lose customers, volume and, simultaneously, have to increase prices.

Now this is a true Leftist Success Story indeed!

This is with whom Obama negotiates

Khamenei Tweet About ObamaYes, the persons who continue to advocate “death to America” and, now, send Twitter messages about Obama committing suicide.

Is this not absolute insanity unbridled?  Why do we negotiate with the mentally unbalanced, those persons who have not and will not hold to treaties and agreements?

With this issue and that of Planned Parenthood, I become more convinced that I am inhabiting some sort of alternate reality from my worst nightmares.

Then I wake up and read the news for another day.

Feds want to kill MORE free speech in re GUNS

SLAVES ARE DISARMEDThe federal government wants to regulate, essentially, anything and everything involving humans within its borders.

The Obama Administration now wants to regulate speech about firearms.

NRA: Gun blogs, videos, web forums threatened by new Obama regulation

by Paul Bedard

Commonly used and unregulated internet discussions and videos about guns and ammo could be closed down under rules proposed by the State Department, amounting to a “gag order on firearm-related speech,” the National Rifle Association is warning.

In updating regulations governing international arms sales, State is demanding that anyone who puts technical details about arms and ammo on the web first get the OK from the federal government — or face a fine of up to $1 million and 20 years in jail.

What?  Is the federal government insane?  That would essentially outlaw gun blogs, gun magazines or any discussions about firearms.

Which, of course, would help the Obama Leftist Socialist Organization help to rid Americans of firearms — only so that the Proles, the Groundlings, the Serfs would be disarmed and more easily controlled.

Who would possibly put up with this?  The push is a governmental assault on the First Amendment itself — again, by the Obama Administration.

According to the NRA, that would include blogs and web forums discussing technical details of common guns and ammunition, the type of info gun owners and ammo reloaders trade all the time.

“Gunsmiths, manufacturers, reloaders, and do-it-yourselfers could all find themselves muzzled under the rule and unable to distribute or obtain the information they rely on to conduct these activities,” said the NRA in a blog posting.

Again, all perfectly in keeping with the Obama Administration’s wish to completely disarm the citizens of this nation, a true goal of Leftists globally.

I have always said that when you lose the Second Amendment, you will lose the First Amendment.

In this instance, here is Mr Obama and his Leftists attempting to hobble and denigrate both amendments simultaneously.  I couldn’t possibly have conjured that possible.  Except that, now, I certainly can.  This is certainly nothing if not innovative on behalf of the Obama Left.  With this addition: the prohibition also focuses on the internet as well, and seeks to clamp down on the internet.  Almost a Perfect Trifecta of prohibitive Leftism.

The NRA agrees.

 “This latest regulatory assault, published in the June 3 issue of the Federal Register, is as much an affront to the First Amendment as it is to the Second,” warned the NRA’s lobbying shop. “Your action is urgently needed to ensure that online blogs, videos, and web forums devoted to the technical aspects of firearms and ammunition do not become subject to prior review by State Department bureaucrats before they can be published,” it added.

What could possibly be the reason for eliminating speech about firearms?

At issue is the internet. State is updating International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), which implement the federal Arms Export Control Act (AECA). The rules govern everything from guns to strategic bombers.

Please read the rest of the article for the details, because I don’t wish to take Bedard’s writing credit from him.

Never in my 60+ years on this planet have I seen my country’s freedoms so hideously and naked assaulted by my federal government.  I can only conclude one thing: this federal governments ultimately seeks total control and authority over each and every persons within its borders to the point where there can be no pushback, no dissension, no verbal or written disagreement on any level in any venue whatsoever.

For what other purpose would rules and regulations such as this exist?
