    Some surprising new laws have gone into effect this year in America's #1 nanny state. Some I find sensible, but others are just damn annoying.

    So this is about an employer being forced to pay for everyone's roomates benefits, whether or not you might have sex with them? Is a domestic partner a same sex issue or can my girlfriend get the bennies now? So when does it stop? How about my grandma, the guy who mows my lawn, or my friends who crash over the weekend? And do they have to also have sex with me, in order to force a company to pay for their benefits as well? :rolleyes:

    How about making them subject to divorce proceedings too?

    So instead of being a limited commodity valued on need, hotel rooms will be first-come, first-serve, which isn't any better.

    How does the state regulate what are federally patrolled fishing waters, anyway?

    Is this The Sierra Club version two?

    Far too vauge of a standard. How about turning them on when you can't see clearly without them?2

    :eek2:
    Get rich quick indeed.

    I hope there is jailtime involved!
    Otherwise known as the Paris Act, sponsored by Hilton International.

    If you can buy drugs, you can sure as hell buy food.

    Save the poor kitties!


    Retailers must honor gift certificates that carry "redemption" dates. California law has barred "expiration" dates, but some retailers substituted "redemption" to force customers to use the gift within a year or lose the money.

    :cry:
    Interesting stuff, California...
