Proposed WA gun law calls on police to inspect homes of gun owners

http://www.theblaze.com

Now, Democratic lawmakers in Olympia, Wash. last week introduced legislation that would allow county sheriffs to inspect the homes of semi-automatic rifle owners once a year. Seattle Times columnist Danny Westneat describes the move as “Orwellian.”

I work with a "conservative" reserve deputy sheriff, he says that he would inspect home if the sheriff instructed him to, because it is, after all, the law. I asked him if he remembered much about the stamp act. He just looked at me with utter confusion.

Government-mandated Low-flow toilets cause a stink in SF

http://www.sfgate.com

San Francisco's big push for low-flow toilets has turned into a multimillion-dollar plumbing stink. Skimping on toilet water has resulted in more sludge backing up inside the sewer pipes, said Tyrone Jue, spokesman for the city Public Utilities Commission.

He cites war as an example of an instance where people's freedoms of choice are suspended, for the benefit of the greater population. Of course, governments don't start wars, do they?
