    That dog may cost you $100,000 a day
    California’s latest experiment in faith-based policymaking is being unleashed today on the San Diego public, as regional water-quality officials begin hearings on new regulations that seem crafted to turn most owners of a car, house or dog into criminals within a decade or so. We wish we were exaggerating.

    Under the draft rules, ordinary homeowners may face six years in prison and fines of $100,000 a day if they are deemed serial offenders of such new crimes as allowing sprinklers to hit the pavement, washing a car in the driveway, or, conceivably, failing to pick up dog poop promptly from their own backyards, let alone the sidewalk.

    Cities throughout San Diego, south Orange and southwest Riverside counties must enforce the law, and set up 24-hour hot lines for people to report violations by their neighbors.

    The new regulations even apply to firefighters, who would be forced to somehow capture and scrub the water running down the street from fire hoses and burning buildings, although the bureaucrats promise wiggle room for “emergency situations.” We’re at a loss to imagine the fire that doesn’t present an emergency situation, but we’re sure California’s army of environmental lawyers will be glad to help cities figure that out in court.​
    CA's not only headed for a cliff, they're running full speed.

    Unchecked liberalism. This is what it does, folks.

    Damn, I'm sure glad I don't live in that carnival state.

    Still a nice state to visit. But as clearly can be seen this is the result of unbridled liberalism.

    I live about 20 miles from CA as the crow flies and I go there maybe twice a year (mainly to Truckee to have dinner at a place we like), for personal reasons. I have to go three or so times a year for business. Other than that I'm outa there!

    However, I do see some fun possiblities with this one. Just imagine how much pain and misery you can cause to the local bureaucrats who annoy you. You could drop a dime on them every single time they let the water run a little long and get them packed off to prison! Awesome!

    I feel so sorry for conservative Californians -- i.e., normal people. :(

    I would put my house on the market immediately if they passed such a law where I live.

    These people are lunatics.

    I'm sure California would be a lovely place were it not for there being so many Californians.
