In 2019 the California legislature and governor signed in almost 1,200 new laws. That’s impressive or depressing, depending on your point of view; one new law rolling out of Sacramento every 7.3 hours every day of the year including Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays!
I had not realized we had fallen into such a state of lawlessness, rampant disfunctionality, and immorality that we needed quite so many new pronouncements to regulate the behavior of our citizens, especially considering the hundreds of thousands of laws already on California’s books. I am sure there are perhaps a hundred or so of these new laws which are good and necessary for the orderly and peaceful maintenance of society and its various activities, and the funding of the government, of course, but it seems that our legislature is hell-bent on “self-justification”, which is to say, on proving to us that we desperately need them on a full time, indeed, on an over-time, basis to regulate our behavior to a minute degree lest without their guiding hand we fall into perdition.
Of course, along with many of these new laws there are new fees and penalties, and a reminder of the need for and the expansion of our burgeoning state regulatory bureaucracy. I could go on, but I think you get my point, so I’ll let you get back to your morning cup of whatever, secure in the comfort that our representatives are doing their best to regulate, proscribe, or moderate whatever you are thinking of doing today, and making you pay for the privilege.
WASHINGTON — In September, the U.S. ordered the largest stress test of its wartime sealift fleet in the command’s history, with 33 out of 61 government-owned ships being activated simultaneously. The results were bad, according to a new report.In an unclassified U.S. Transportation Command report posted to its website, the so-called turbo activation revealed that less than half of the sealift fleet would be fully prepared to get underway for a major sealift operation in a crisis.
