Then they came for your showers……

Ah yes, the national nannies they wanna be in our showers now

President Joe Biden is ditching showerhead rules put in place by former President Donald Trump that allowed more water to flow out of a shower per minute.

After reviewing Trump’s policy for months, Biden has decided to revert to the 2013 Obama-Era standard on water flow, which allows for 2.5-gallons-per-minute.

Biden is also attempting to eliminate the definition of “body spray” Trump adopted, which was described as a “shower device for spraying onto a bather other than from the overhead position.” Trump argued a “body spray” should not fall under the umbrella of a showerhead, hence, it should not be subject to the 2.5 gallon limit.

Of course slice of Statism will allow us to “save more money” AND, as an added bonus liberate us to buy crappy shower heads

“As many parts of America experience historic droughts, this commonsense proposal means consumers can purchase shower heads that conserve water and save them money on their utility bills,” Kelly Speakes-Backman, acting assistant secretary for the department’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, said Friday. 

What? People could not buy weak, nearly useless shower heads before? The bs the left spews is so pathetic. By the way, these wimpy shower heads mean you spend more time showering as it takes longer to rinse off and get the shampoo out of your hair. In fact, I would not be shocked if they end up causing us to use more water, but, again, this will never occur to a central-planner

Marxifornia Statists strike again

Regulation, taxation, all i the name of equality, right? Wrong! Moonbattery has this

California’s moonbat rulers have gone beyond discouraging work through overtaxation to straight out banning it. Assembly Bill 5 represents senseless tyranny at a level of lunacy rarely seen outside of communist dictatorships.

Last month AB 5, designed to criminalize the vibrant gig economy, was passed and signed. It allows independent contractors to do their job only if it is outside the usual work done by the company that pays them. Basically, that makes it illegal to work as a freelancer in the People’s Republic of California.

They simply cannot stand liberty and personal choice can they?

Via CalMatters:

Under that requirement, janitors could work as independent contractors only when they have contracts with companies not in the business of cleaning.

Or a rideshare driver could work under a contract with Uber or Lyft only if those companies were primarily in the business of, say, selling vacuum cleaners.

This is not freedom, it is statism. ere is the fundamental question

By what authority do the leftists running California deprive people of their fundamental right to earn a living?

Indeed! Governor Gavin Newsom, of course is all for taking choice from workers 

In a signing statement, Gov. Gavin Newsom said the next step “is creating pathways for more workers to form a union, collectively bargain to earn more, and have a stronger voice at work.”

It is “in this spirit,” he said, that he would persuade political, labor, and business leaders to support an effort in which “workers excluded from the National Labor Relations Act” would have “the right to organize and collectively bargain.”

When Skelton said that maybe the aim of AB5 was “to rope in more dues-paying union members,” he might have been more correct than he realized.

Again, leftism is the most corrosive force on earth 

Dumped By Obama, The U.S. Just Lost Another Key Ally To Russia (Allen West)

Dumped By Obama, The U.S. Just Lost Another Key Ally To Russia – Allen West


What happens if you’re that guy who really likes this girl but she keeps dismissing you? Does there come a time when you finally realize this specific girl will never want you? And then comes a girl, maybe not so gorgeous but she’s attracted to you and sees you as a great guy. What do you do? Do you keep hanging around hoping the dream girl finally realizes you do exist – after you’ve spent forever conveying your desire? Or do you find a relationship with someone willing to be with you?

So, imagine how this little scenario plays out in the world of foreign policy.

As reported by the Jerusalem Post, “A delegation of Iraqi Kurds will visit Moscow in April to discuss Russian weapons supplies, the RIA Novosti news agency on Thursday cited the head of an Iraqi Kurd representation office in Russia as saying.

RIA on Wednesday quoted the Russian consulate in Iraq as saying Russia has already supplied weapons to Iraqi Kurds and that the first shipment had arrived on March 14. It said the shipment had included five Zu-23-2 anti-aircraft cannons and 20,000 shells for the cannons.

Having been in Kurdistan, I can attest that, outside of Israel, you will not find more pro-American, pro-Western people in the Middle East. They wholeheartedly have assisted U.S. forces in Iraq with the defeat of Saddam’s forces as well as Islamic jihadists. They were all in with the new Iraqi government and constitution, yet, with the coming of one Barack Obama, they’ve once again been dismissed.

As a Member of the U.S. Congress I hosted representatives of the Kurdish Regional Government in my office on several occasions and attended many of their sponsored events.

You want an effective ground force to combat ISIS, the spread of Islamic jihadism, and check the hegemonic designs of Iran? There’s no one better than the Kurds. The problem is that while the Kurds were requesting support from the United States, they were rejected. The weapons systems aid was provided to the central Iraq government in Baghdad, and guess what? They were distributed mainly to the Shiite elements, who in turn quickly dropped them as they withdrew, ran away, and then were confiscated by ISIS.

The return on investment for these weapons would have been much higher if they’d been delivered directly to the Kurds. And even worse, after Barack Obama achieved permission from the closet Islamist, his dear friend Turkish President Erdogan, for the use of U.S. military air basing, the Kurds then found themselves being bombed by Turkish forces. These are the same Turkish forces who somehow turned a blind eye as ISIS fighters flowed out of Turkey into northern Iraq and Syria.

So, like the fella who’s been rejected by the girl he wanted, the fella is looking elsewhere to the girl who’s said, “I like you.” Enter Russia and Vladimir Putin…and we all know Putin has some issues with Erdogan and Turkey after they shot down his aircraft.

This week we heard about Russia conducting a partial pullout of forces in Syria. Needless to say it appears Putin is building his coalition in the region. We know Egypt’s President el-Sisi has visited Russia – he’s been rejected by the same girl. Last year, right before the U.N General Assembly, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited Russia – he has been rejected by the same girl. So one has to ask, when will Jordan’s leader King Abdullah court the new”girl?”

The game of foreign policy is being lost by the United States under the presidency of Barack Obama. And these nations who were staunch allies and supporters are realizing they must court others. We’re watching the impact and influence of America slip away. Sure, progressive socialists will say, we’re more liked now – but I will counter that we’re not respected, by friend or foe.

We were once the desired date, but now we’re turning into something completely undesirable. We’re not the trusted ally we once were. And thanks to a nebulous and failed foreign policy folks are doing following the advice of Smokey Robinson and the Miracles: “You better shop around.”

Intolerant Atheists demand University of Toledo football players, coaches stop praying

GODitis! A severe allergic reaction suffered by radical Atheists upon hearing anyone exercising the right to pray

The University of Toledo football program has been violating the Constitution with pregame prayers, according to the Freedom From Religion Foundation.

The group, which serves as a “voice for freethought,” claimed that Head Coach Matt Campbell committed a “serious and flagrant violation of the First Amendment” when he led the team in a prayer before a 2012 game against Bowling Green.

The complaint stems from a video posted to the university’s YouTube page which features footage from a GoPro mobile camera that was mounted on the helmet of then-kicker Jeremiah Detmer.

The video shows Coach Campbell telling the team “I’m going to say this: Every one of us has so much to be thankful for. A great night to play football, play with your brothers, OK? What an opportunity. Let’s be grateful for it.”

At that, he takes a knee and the team begins to recite the Lord’s Prayer.

According to the foundation, this sort of activity is unacceptable, and results in players feeling “huge pressure to participate in the prayer” in order to “please their coach or curry favor.”

A letter from FFRF to the university reiterated the sentiment, claiming “By incorporating a Christian prayer into the team’s pregame activities, Coach Campbell sends a message of exclusion to those players on his team not in conformity with his personal religious beliefs”.

The letter called on the University of Toledo to stop any sort of prayers that are going on during sporting events.

Oh Good Freaking Grief!

Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney, just another lying gun grabber

The Democrat, Liberal, Leftist, Statist seeks to force gun n owners to purchase liability insurance, and is obviously not above prevericating to beat the band. Bob Owens exposes her and sets the facts straight See if you can spot her three lies

New York Democrat Carolyn B. Maloney showed her allegiance to some of her biggest campaign backers Friday by proposing legislation that would require gun owners to buy blatantly unconstitutional liability insurance:

House Democrat Rep. Carolyn Maloney (N.Y.) has introduced a bill that would require gun owners to carry liability insurance.

The Firearm Risk Protection Act, unveiled Friday, would require gun buyers to have liability insurance coverage before being allowed to purchase a weapon, and would impose a fine of $10,000 if an owner is found not to have it. Service members and law enforcement officers, however, would be exempt from the requirement.

“We require insurance to own a car, but no such requirement exists for guns,” Maloney said in a statement. “The results are clear: car fatalities have declined by 25 percent in the last decade, but gun fatalities continue to rise.”

Did you catch them? Bob Owens did

There is no law mandating that Americans must purchase insurance to possess or own a car. Nor is there any tie whatsoever between liability insurance and the declining lethality of automobile accidents; the lives saved in motor vehicle accidents are best attributed to rapid advances in automobile safety technologies demanded by consumers (not government intervention) in recent decades.

And it should probably come as no surprise that Maloney is lying about firearm homicides as well. They are not only not rising, but they have continued a long-term decline, and are down 49% from 1993.

In short, Maloney is a lying hack who is a disgrace to this republic!
