The Kern Community College District Board of Trustees, whose vice president publicly compared Garrett to livestock that should be culled before apologizing for the remark, apparently held an unrecorded vote without public notice Thursday, either in closed session between morning and afternoon open sessions or after the public meeting. Local media were confused, with KGET reporting that Garrett's status remained unknown as of noon Friday. "There was an outpouring of community support and the room hit capacity; several people were turned away," Garrett told Just the News early Friday morning before learning of the vote.

"We’re talking about a young lady who, by the age of 13, has fallen victim to this. How many more victims do we need to have in sex trafficking before we realize this is not a good law? We can address the disparities in a different manner."

The bill would not penalize people for using or possessing tobacco products. Instead, it would fine retailers for selling to them. Connolly said he’s open to amendments that might create an exemption for religious and cultural uses. But he said the ban would not impact marijuana, which is legal to smoke recreationally in California.

NIMBY: Steph Curry Opposes Affordable Housing in His Neighborhood
cross-posted from: > Like most successful liberals, Curry is a supporter of Joe Biden. According to the Washington Free Beacon, he and his wife Ayesha joined a non-profit in 2021 that was dedicated to “bridging the racial wealth gap.” Curry has been a supporter of Black Lives Matter and was one of the NBA players to take a knee during the National Anthem. He also has a $30 million mansion. Which is all pretty much standard-issue Leftwingery. > > But, despite his public display of solidarity, Curry is more than a little concerned about a plan to put high-density affordable townhomes in his tony neighborhood. The Currys were so aghast at the idea of the “little people” sharing their space, they wrote a letter to the town of Atherton, CA, in protest. The Currys are upset about the townhomes “looming” directly behind them, as well as their privacy and safety. Outkick published an excerpt of the letter to the city: “We hesitate to add to the ‘not in our backyard’ (literally) rhetoric, but we wanted to send a note before today’s meeting. Safety and privacy for us and our kids continues to be our top priority and one of the biggest reasons we chose Atherton as home.” The Currys also want the city to install taller fencing and create landscaping to protect the sight lines to their property.

California Democrats consider wealth tax — including for people who moved out of state
Assemblyman Alex Lee, a progressive Democrat, last week introduced a bill in the California State Legislature that would impose an extra annual 1.5% tax on those with a "worldwide net worth" above $1 billion, starting as early as January 2024. As early as 2026, the threshold for being taxed would drop: those with a worldwide net worth exceeding $50 million would be hit with a 1% annual tax on wealth, while billionaires would still be taxed 1.5%. Worldwide wealth extends beyond annual income to include diverse holdings such as farm assets, arts and other collectibles, and stocks and hedge fund interest.

Give me medical freedom
cross-posted from: > “Prescribe Freedom” will make permanent several important medical freedom protections that prevent, among other things, discrimination against those who do not wear masks or refuse to get the mRNA jab. The legislative proposal will also permanently protect freedom of speech and religion for medical professionals and the public. California has purposefully sprinted in the opposite direction with the passing of a “misinformation bill” that restricts the speech of medical professionals and seeks to penalize them if they dare to openly buck the prevailing narrative. > > DeSantis wants to ensure that medical professionals and Floridians have the freedom “to disagree with the preferred narrative of the medical community.” Per the promotional flyer below, the measures permanently prohibit mandates for mRNA jabs and masks in schools and permanently prohibit vaccine passports in Florida. In addition, it will ensure employers in the state cannot hire or fire based on vaccination status permanently.
