Lawmakers have nothing else to do but outlaw fun in the sun. I'd like to see them ban liberals from breeding, they've destroyed this state.

In passing the 37-page ordinance on Tuesday, officials sought to outline responsibilities for law enforcement and other public agencies while also providing clarification on beach-goer activities that could potentially disrupt or even injure the public.
Maybe they should ban swimming. You know … jelly fish, tar-balls, drownings…
This is actually not a new regulation. The fines have been jacked up from $500 to $1,000, but the ball playing restrictions were in place before. Previous restrictions noted inflatable rubber balls not less than 10 inches in diameter were OK, but now they are OK with “a beach ball or beach volleyball.”

Liberals Say "STOP THE MADNESS". Regulate FRISBEE Use At Beach.
Is this unbelievable or what?

Well, they're almost done destroying the state financially, I guess all the time they have on their hands results in the liberals thinking up ways to control and restrict Californians in every ridiculous way possible.

Obama is Hell bent on turning all of America into California.

Actually, California could learn a thing or two from Barack when it comes to destroying Liberty and an Economy.

Pails and shovels could possibly hurt beach goers as well.
Heck, anything you bring to the beach could hurt someone.

They better just close off the beaches completely. Someone could get hurt there.

They are just trying to raise money for the state any way that they can.

Why do they need so much money?

Because they have a lot of poor people living there.

Ok, not that I necessarily support all aspects of the law...but perhaps now we can introduce some actual fact into this thread (I know this will hurt for some of you; don't worry, you can handle it).

1. The CA ordinances outlawing frisbee on the beach have existed for more than 40 years.

2. The current rules actually increased the leniency, allowing for more items under more conditions to be used on beaches.

3. The maximum fine is $500, and it comes into play if you don't heed lifeguards' orders more than three times in a year.

Frisbee beach ban overblown, Los Angeles officials say - Yahoo! News (http://news.yahoo.com/frisbee-beach-ban-overblown-los-angeles-officials-002505081.html - broken link)


4. Beach ordinances exist in numerous other places besides California. In fact, pretty much every public beach in the United States in every state has a set of enforceable regulations. A simple Google search can be very enlightening. Here are just a few of the things I found within about 30 seconds:

New Jersey Shore Bans Wide Array of Activities - 5/26/2007 ... hey, why is Christie letting this kind of stuff go on?
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/18881735.../#.TzbSKRxhXf4

Hilton Head Beach Rules - hey wait, I thought South Carolina was a "good" conservative state??
Contains such gems as:
Quote:
• Tuesday after Labor Day – September: Animals must be on a leash from 10 A.M. – 5 P.M.
• No surfboards, boogie boards or other articles to ride the surf in designated swimming areas.
• No frisbees or other team sports involving a ball in designated swimming areas.
• No games with metal components (such as metal horseshoes) in designated swimming areas.

Myrtle Beach Laws - just LOOK at all the things that these anti-American Communists restrict! Wait...Myrtle Beach isn't in California, is it? Hmmm.
Quote:
Sec. 5-3. Authority of beach patrol officers and their agents as to swimmers, and persons on the beach.
Sec. 5-6. Certain Flotation devices restricted.
Sec. 5-7. Use of bicycles restricted.
Sec.5- 10. Use of kayaks and surfboards restricted.
Sec. 5-16. Fires prohibited.
Sec.5-19. Sleeping on public beach or public access after 9:00 p.m. prohibited.
Sec. 5-21. Aquatic activity within 75 yards of pier prohibited.
Sec. 5-30. Nudity, Display of specified anatomical areas and specified sexual activities prohibited.

Trying to confuse conservatives with the facts. You know they hate it when we do that, don't you?

Liberals Run California. Have for years and part of the problem the state is in such trouble, and why non liberals are fleeing the state if they can.
