Proof that California is out of touch with the rest of the world.

So here’s a small sample of what the crazy’s are looking to pass. You tell me if this is not out of some reality tv show.

1. AB 1825 – Protect Inappropriate Books Law 

So called Freedom to Read Act.  The bill seeks to remove the authority of public libraries to remove or deny access to certain books.  (b) (1) The governing board of a public library shall not proscribe or prohibit the circulation or procurement of any book, audio, film, instructional material, or other resource in a public library because of the topic addressed by the materials or because of the views, ideas, or opinions contained in those materials.

(2) The discretion to determine the content of materials in public libraries shall not be exercised in a manner that discriminates against or excludes materials based on race, nationality, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, disability, political affiliation, or socioeconomic status, on the basis that the materials under consideration contain inclusive and diverse perspectives, or on the basis that the materials may include sexual content, unless that content qualifies as obscene under United States Supreme Court precedent. Provides a cause of action by patrons.

2. AB 1840 – Home Subsidies for Illegal Immigrants

Extends the California Dream for All program eligibility to illegal aliens.  This program provides for an interest free loan for first-time homebuyers for the down payment.

3. AB 2216 – Force Landlords to Take Pets

This legislation will prohibit landlords from deciding how many pets to allow, what the pet deposit should be, and how much extra monies to charge for pet rent. Violates Limited Government and Free Enterprise. Does not promote a free market system, does not protect private property, and interferes with the terms of voluntary contracts.

4. AB 2319 Men Can Give Birth Law

The bill would require hospitals that provide perinatal or prenatal care to conduct initial training for all current and new health care providers on implicit bias that includes recognition of nonbinary persons and persons of transgender experience, i.e., all birthing people. Administrative penalties assessed by the department for non-compliance.

5. AB 2498 Illegal Immigrant Rental Subsidies

This bill would create a pilot grant program to provide rental subsidies for qualifying low-income individuals in six counties to reduce housing insecurity. The bill’s definition of “eligible population” include low-income individuals (who may be undocumented) with any of the following characteristics:

A former foster youth who qualifies for the Independent Living Program; an older adult, 55 years of age or older; an adult with disabilities; a person experiencing unemployment; an incarcerated person with a scheduled release date within 60 to 180 days and who is likely to experience homelessness upon release; a person experiencing homelessness; or a veteran.

The program would allow for counties or grantees to provide a subsidy to any eligible individuals in an amount necessary to cover the portion of the person’s rent to prevent them from falling into homelessness, not to exceed either $2,000 as a one-time subsidy or $2,000 per month for the duration of the pilot, or two years, whichever is longer.

6. ACA 10 – Socialized Housing for All  

Right to housing.  ”The state hereby recognizes the fundamental human right to adequate housing for everyone in California. It is the shared obligation of state and local jurisdictions to respect, protect, and fulfill this right, on a non-discriminatory and equitable basis, with a view to progressively achieve the full realization of the right, by all appropriate means, including the adoption and amendment of legislative measures, to the maximum of available resources.”

7. SB 1174 – Voter ID Ban

Prohibits local governments from enacting voter identification laws.

8. SB 957 – Who Are You Sleeping With Law

This bill REQUIRES the California State Department of Public Health to collect from health care providers, state agencies, schools and third parties information that was provided regarding voluntary self-identification of sexual orientation and gender identity.

9. SB 961 – Government as Your Backseat Driver Law

By 2029, 50% of vehicles must be equipped with a passive intelligent speed assistance system and mandatory for all vehicles by 2032. The system would give a brief, one-time, visual and audio signal to alert the driver each time the speed of the vehicle is more than 10 miles per hour over the speed limit.

10. ACA 7 – Affirmative Action/Legalized Discrimination

This measure would repeal Prop 209 and would therefore reinstate affirmative action.  Californians for Equal Rights Foundation wrote in opposition that “advocating for race/sex-based preferences distorts the principle of equal opportunity into an illiberal, social-engineering tool of equal outcome. Instead of focusing on tribal divisions and political favoritism, we should help all disadvantaged individuals regardless of race or gender. We should also make sure that every individual has equal access to public resources, and that our government provide institutional support that encourages American virtues of hard-work, initiative, self-discipline, and individual merit.

11. ACA 8  – Don’t Put Prisoners to Work

The California Constitution currently states “Involuntary servitude is prohibited except to punish crime.”  This amendment would remove the phrase “except to punish crime”.  This is the second time around for this amendment as it did not pass in the 2021-2023 session.

The Anti-Recidivism Coalition, a co-sponsor of this bill, wrote in support that, “Despite the Thirteenth Amendment outlawing slavery and involuntary servitude…” That letter deceptively left off in the actual Thirteenth Amendment’s phrase “except for the punishment of a crime”, which is the crux of the matter.  By removing that same phrase from the California Constitution, inmates confined in any in-state institution could not be required to perform daily chores without falling under the state’s labor laws.

According to “the Assembly Appropriations Committee, the ongoing costs to the state in increased wages for inmate labor. In 2021, the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation…reported it had nearly 65,000 work assignments for incarcerated persons….  If required to pay a minimum wage for inmate work, costs to pay inmates a minimum wage could be in the billions of dollars annually.”  Cost to counties would also run in the millions of dollars.

The ultimate goal of propositions such as this was posted on the Communist Party USA website (since removed).  It is to form labor unions within prisons, and as we see in ACA 4, for convicted felons to be given the right to vote. Also, labor unions are formed to negotiate for working conditions and wages.  How much do we want to pay inmates to make their beds, cook, clean their rooms, and do their laundry?

12. SCA 2 – Create More Orphan Ballots Law

In addition to expanding their voter base by allowing incarcerated felons to vote via ACA 4, which is likely dead, this bill which is very much alive and would extend the right to vote to 17-year-olds.  Now that the public education system has indoctrinated most students to a Marxist agenda, the Democratic Party wants to make certain they vote earlier than the current age 18.

HONORABLE MENTION

13. SCA 1 – Protect Politicians from Recalls Law

This bill would redefine a recall election of statewide officials to NOT include alternative candidates. Lt. Gov would serve until the next election.

No doubt polling has shown that Democrats being recalled would fare better if the voting public were not given the option of a more desirable Republican opponent.
