Once again the liberal wing of the California State legislature has found a new industry to attack. The old saying, “When someone is making a fool of themselves, get out of the way,” is also tied to another old saying, “When Democrats are out of power, they are funny, when they are in power, they are dangerous.” This was never as true as now.
State Senator Yee is in the news. California’s economy is nearing collapse. Meanwhile, the good Senator has found an issue that is dear to his heart. He has offered a bill to ban the White pages of the phone book unless specifically requested. According to KMJ News 580 AM, the white pages unnecessarily burden the environment.
Well Senator, so are cow’s flatulent, but we don’t ban them. The senator is vague as to exactly how they are a burden on the environment.
Cal me foolish, but I thought it might be more important for the good Senator to ‘cut the budget’, not the phone book. But, the Senator had help in this foolishness. Earlier in the year, the California Public Utilities Commission President David Chiu offered legislation to ban the unsolicited yellow pages from regular deliver to on request only. He notes that if we are serious about the environment this is the place to start.
Perhaps someone might remind the Senator that banning the phone books means people are out of work. In a state that has rampant unemployment you would think encouraging businesses might be a priority. This kind of legislation can have a huge impact on businesses all up and down the state.
Here in Fresno, more restrictions, more attacks on our industries, more unemployment, and for what, to make a State Senator feel good about himself. The San Joaquin Valley is forced to sit and watch as the fools in San Francisco elect one fool after another.
Let me see if I can connect the dots, maybe by banning the White pages, we will increase employment, no? Well, maybe we will be able to generate more revenue for the treasury with all the new hires…no? Well, maybe it will somehow reduce the excessive regulatory burden on businesses and encourage them to return to California….no? Then why are they wating the publics time and money getting invvolved oncee agaiin in the private sector?
We must always be vigilant , ever mindful of tthose we entrust to power.
