Legislators regulating dog groomers, dental hygienists

June 19, 2012

Katy Grimes: If you thought the June election might make California Democrats take pause and re-examine their business-killing policies, think again.

Today in the Assembly Business, Professions And Consumer Protection Committee, bills to regulate dog groomers, dental hygienists, Naturopath doctors, practitioners of Chinese medicine and even alarm companies are about to be even more regulated.

Here is the list with links to the bills:

    The RAGWUS seeks control: Everyday, as I go about my daily tasks, I see the bad ideas of people seeking to control the actions of a Constitutionaly free people. Most of these “restrictions” are put in place by nameless/faceless humans that work out of a governemnt cubicle.The perfect bureaucrat everywhere is the human who manages to make poor decisions and escape all responsibility for any of them. 🙂

    If there was ever a perfect example of fiddling while the town burns all around you……

    It’s not just the CA Leg., however, guilty as though they may be.

    My cable system feeds me my local Irvine City Council meetings as well LAUSD Board of Directors meetings. I actually watch a few minutes of each now and then – BY CHOICE, no less….LOL (I doubt I have much company.)

    Irvine Council always begins with some silly commendation, such as recognition of the efforts of the Association of Paraplegic Health Care Workers or the Punjabi Human Rights Project. Then we listen to sometime-mayor, permanent council-member and eternally pompous a** Larry Agran prattle on about the Wonders of Diversity this-and-than, seconded by his lackey, sycophant and current Mayor, the frumpy Beth Krom.

    Unlike Ms Grimes, I must lack will power. I can only stomach 5 minutes of so of this.

    For my nightcap, I turn on KLCS…..owned and operated by LAUSD. To give you an indication of where they are coming from, KLCS carries, in addition to standard PBS fare such as “Nightly Business Report” and “Newsline”, the cringeworthy “Democracy Now!” (Yes – the exclamation point IS part of the official title. If it’s possible to be to the left of the Occupy movement, “Democracy Now!” can surely lay claim to that part of the spectrum.)

    Watching the LAUSD Board of Directors……If you want to know how seven individuals can squander a good portion of something north of $7 billion per year, this is it.

    They are not ALL wholly incompetent. A few – perhaps two or three – are reasonably articulate and will make a thoughtful and germane comment from time to time. As to the rest….I can only shake my head. I ask myself, incredulously, how it is such unprepared, poorly-spoken, shallow-thinking, and quite frankly unlearned people can wind up on the board of a district with a $7 billion budget. Did they rise up through the Motor Pool? Or did they take the Cafeteria Services route? Nothing against Motor Pool and Cafeteria Services workers, but you generally do not find them heading up organizations with $7 billion annual budgets.

    It is downright frightening to watch this display.

    Kalifornia’s only hope now is Standard and Poor. If they are paying attention at all they will dramatically lower Kali’s bond rating and force the state to come up with an honest budget. Then the Dem’s will blame it on Arnold again.

    Albertson’s is now laying off people too. Seems the unionized folks are the first to go in this corporate family. Company can’t afford them.

    So again we see end-stage unionism: a few people keep their jobs at the higher rates and the rest get laid off.

    The ragwus is illusionsary. It’s in the mind of frightened citizens….the fear of repression that does not exist. Relax…California will shake of the rust after the very modest incremental revenue enhancement passes in a short few months.

    Take it easy.

    Queeg, the rantings of a RAGWUS feeder does nothing to help the poor among us. The RAGWUS scam is to steal for their own gain, not for the poor. :))

    My Dear friend Queeg, the RAGWUS has failed you, and everyone else in our once great state. Prepare yourself for the fall, and I don’t mean the season. 🙂
