” San Francisco is plagued with thousands of scofflaws. Their crime? Storing anything that isn’t a car in their garage.
According to Chapter 6 of the San Francisco Housing Code, “Private and public storage garages in apartment houses and hotels shall be used only for storage of automobiles.” Failing to comply with the law can lead to fines of up to $500.
The law is particularly silly since many San Franciscans are proud cyclists. Take Kimberly Conley. She has a home in the Mission District with her husband, but no car. Because of the city’s code, she’s technically breaking the law every time she stores her bike in her garage:
It’s absolutely ridiculous, especially in San Francisco, where storage space is at a premium—you expect to be able to do with your garage whatever you need to do with it. If you’re not going to use your garage for a car, it should be your space to do as you please.”

There’s So Much Misunderstanding Around Marijuana. Here’s What’s Really Happening To People When They Smoke Weed

It’s not just people that have cannabinoid systems. All mammals have them. All creatures do, except bugs. Although cannabinoid systems can utilize the plant-based cannabinoids in marijuana, the cultivation and preservation of cannabinoid systems by the evolutionary process has nothing to do with pot. The cannabinoid receptor appeared on the planet at least 550 million years before marijuana.“
” Republican senators are demanding answers about Health And Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius’ private fundraising efforts to augment finances for Obamacare, saying her actions were legally and ethically wrong.”
” GOP Sens. Rob Portman and Orrin Hatch, in exclusive interviews with Newsmax, both agree that Sebelius’ activities were ethically suspect and likely illegal.
Republicans complain the fundraising drive violates the federal “anti-deficiency” act, which prohibits government agencies from accepting voluntary services or donations.
However, HHS officials say a section of the Public Service Act allows its secretary to seek donations to support health programs.”
” Court-appointed Republican poll inspectors are being forcibly removed from voting stations in some Philadelphia wards and replaced in some cases by Democratic inspectors and even members of the Black Panthers, according to GOP officials.
Secrets just received this memo from GOP officials:
” The Philadelphia GOP is reporting that court appointed Minority (read GOP) Inspectors are being thrown out of polling locations in several Wards.
These Inspectors are election officials – again, court appointed — and are reportedly being thrown out by the Head Judges of Elections (these Judges are elected Democrats) and being replaced by Democrats.
