Tales From the Once-Golden State: Couple Will Face Fine If They Water Their Lawn, or Pay Another Fine If They Don’t

There’s a drought global warming in California and so the state has, not objectionably, levied fines for using water for non-essential things, such as watering lawns.

Of course, there’s also a pre-existing fine for permitting your lawn to become brown and thus an eyesore.

Is this law suspended during the period of water conversation?

Of course not.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
