Don't make a spectacle of yourself and you'll be fine. I live in a place that could use more restrictions now that rednecks have money so I'm going to move. I don't really have a problem with that as long as the rednecks are also paying taxes.

Is anyone really surprised at this?!

Pretty soon they'll be fining Californians for Breathing Fresh air and expelling Carbon Dioxide

Another reason to not even consider living/moving to California...

Only real "oppressionists" could take such a beautiful state and make it unlivable...



"Just work with the door closed and you will probably be fine."

That's the whole point... You shouldn't have to close your garage....(outside of an HOA area.) This is America.

...Like you working on your car doing an oil change or tune-up on your own driveway (is a dirty thing)...

Give me a break.

Thatís why I live in rural Pennsylvania. Nobody cares what you do. A carry and conceal permit to carry a hand gun cost $20 and 10 minutes of your time if youíre so inclined

As for living in California, I could care less what others think of this magnificent state.

I have lived here 48 or my 48 years and there is nowhere else I would ever live.
That article is a bit far-fetched, and sensationalized for the press, but they do keep an eye on things here.

I live in Sacramento, average very middle-class neighborhood, and I've been working on my cars at home since I got here 30 yrs ago. I don't leave a mess of cars out, but a couple months ago I removed the transfer case out of my BMW X5 suv that was parked in the street. I zip-tied up the drive shafts, but one fell down and was very visible to passing cars. Within a week I had a big orange code enforcement warning that in 48 hours the vehicle would be towed at my expense because it was non-functioning and on the city streets. That was my bad, I shouldn't have done that. It's probably good they keep an eye on things because or else it'd be a big mess out there of broken cars and it'd hurt home values.

All sorts of cars around in various states of repair, but as long as it's on your property, they leave you alone, as long as you aren't in a tight HOA or CC&R zone.

Life is about options. I can live in a more restricted area if I want, with all the perks and quirks that go along with it. I can also live in the middle of a forest where I can pretty much do whatever I want. I chose the latter. But itís pretty much my choice either way.

Iíve been following this web site pertaining to daily crude oil prices and related news. Itís actually pretty interesting. One of the topics was the law suites brought on by several big cities through out the US on carbon emissions against big oil. One of the interesting things in all cases it was the same law firm. The article went on to say a lot of the laws written by some of these environmentalist were so poorly crafted it appeared deliberate that the cases would be thrown out of court to big oils favor. The cities lost money but the law form that but these cities up to it came out the winner. Itís probably something similar for publicity

yes it was. Me and other friends made many calls to Sacramento and raised hell about it. Iirc it was on the TV news and in the LA Times once. You got to look at the news paper everyday and the TV news or radio news everyday. Lots of stuff going on that you only hear about once. I have lived in LA since 1987 and been hot rodding since 1973. There has been talk in Sacramento the past several years about passing a lot to make ALL 1997-2007 light duty diesel pickups install a DPF system. Problem is the expense and nobody making a retrofit for light dutys right now. I have a 2001,2002, and 2006 diesel pickups and am keeping my ear open to stand against this.

well we are NOT going to give it a rest. We like the climate, the land , the location but we HATE the dictating politicians that are telling us what we can and cant drive and what kind of light bulb we can have. I am surprised they havent dictated what kind of geetar amp we can have. You cant do this you cant so that inside your own house. It is illegal to have a home recording studio in your house where you write songs and sell them in a residential area. I could get fined for having my drums,guitars,hammond C3 , Tascam reel to reels, Midas mixer , etc in my house that I use to write and record my own songs because I live in a residential area. I am not bothering anyone and my place is soundproof and you cant hear anything on the outside. But dictater politicians dont care. There is less freedom in cali then in new york. I have also lived in Atlanta, VA Beach, Iowa, Wyoming,Texas,mississippi, and probably somewhere else I forgot about. I just got back from a trip to new york and the deep south. I like cali but hate the politicians of all parties here. Its all about controlling what you do. There was a news article a while back that said San Francisco was going after home dwellers that using their garage for storage. WTF ! A while back in georgia a couple was fined because there 2 daughters came to vist during spring break. They went to different collages and each had a car. The local law stated that all vehicles must be parked inside a garage overnight. No parking in the driveway overnight. WTF ! They have a 2 car garage that there cars are in. What are the 2 daughters suppose to do ? So there was an uprising and I didnt hear anymore about what happened.

PS. You dont even live here so whats it to you ?

Born there. Raised there. Family still there including three adult children and an adult grandchild. Visit often. Own retirement property there. I've lived there longer than you have at this point and will again once I retire in a few years. I'm here because for my "day gig" you move to where the work is.

I was raised in OC. It's an outlier politically not representative of the state as a whole.

I have no problem with Nailbender as we exchange ideas and knowledge and also sometimes disagree (no worries), but as moderators ( @GypsyR, @Israel, @patrickstapler) you absolutely CAN'T let a statement like this go un-noticed.

I couldn't care less if someone calls me or anyone else a redneck, but if you change redneck to any other word in this post it would be deleted and/or the thread shutdown.

Yup we did. Just saying hello from Ridgecrest........
