The competition between Los Angeles and San Francisco to be the perfect liberal utopia continues.
First, San Fran banned Happy Meals.
Then, LA banned plastic bags.
Now, San Fran has struck back with yet another freedom-destroying, nanny-state measure sure to bring happiness and contentment to the masses:
A new law targeting those who hang out, and lie down, on the sidewalks and streets of San Francisco has some asking whether this city, known for its "love thy neighbor" attitude, has perhaps decided some neighbors aren't welcome.
In November, 53% of voters here passed Prop. L, which forbids people from sitting or lying on public sidewalks from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. The ordinance is very similar to anti-sit/lie laws in Berkeley, Seattle, and other liberal cities, and received strong support from Mayor Gavin Newsom and Police Chief George Gascon.
Yet another issue where the government definitely needs to involve itself. Why would anyone not want to live in this paradise?!
