A Southern California couple received a letter from Glendora city officials threatening to fine them $500 if they don’t get their sun-scorched brown lawn green again, reports AP.
We’re just scratching our head here trying to figure out what possible justification there could be for fining people for not watering their own lawns on their own property. But this is KafkaFornia, and government never needed any justification. Not to mention that the couple is watering their lawn, just not enough.
And they would just love to water it some more, actually, but they’re not allowed to, you see. Because of the same government:
They could also be fined $500 if they water their lawn too much; they’re currently only watering twice a week. With more than 80% of California in an extreme drought, according to the Los Angeles Times, the state water board voted this week to implement emergency conservation plans and gave the OK to fine water wasters up to $500 a day.
So if you don’t water your lawn, you get fined $500 by your government, and if you do water your lawn, you — get fined $500 by your government…
Aren’t you glad that you keep voting for government to make decisions for you that you’re too stupid to make yourselves? After all, that is what government is all about: We need some brilliant Einsteins in government to make decisions for us because we, unlike them, are too damn dumb to make the “right” decisions, don’t we?
We hope you’re glad, anyway, because it’s what you got. And considering that it’s what you’ve been voting for for decades, we really can’t find much by way of sympathy for you.
Now go vote for some more Prozi Democrats, why don’t you? You know you will. Because that’s what you’ve always done before.
We guess you really are too fucking dumb after all.
