Hold onto your coffee bros! :grin:

Well I had my day in court yesterday with the California burned out raison neighbors…:face_with_monocle::stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

They tried to get a ”No Contact” Order against me for:
1- Firearms…whatever that means? Lol

2- No Trespassing.

The judge didn’t question me on anything about firearms.

The neighbors said….”He’s throwing cat s#!t over the fence line and has large mirrors pointed at our house” :scream::person_shrugging: I said so…? Lol

I showed the judge an email where they wanted to trade their
Cannabis sativa and Indica for my organic figs and blueberries I grow…:blueberries:

The judge threw the paperwork back to the whackos and said to keep trading maryjane for my figs and blueberries then asked me for help with his own fig bushes!

There’s more to the story…just don’t want you to spit your coffee twice this morning…:coffee::sake::+1:

Imagine if they had guns (and were allowed to use them)… :wink:

Police warned residents against carrying weapons. “We’d remind people that activity like arming yourself puts you, the community and others at potential risk, and you could risk criminal charges,” a spokesman said.

Opinions vary, but I consider myself a logical, common sense kind of guy. For the life of me I can’t fathom how arming myself puts me at risk in any way…unless we’re talking about the risk of NOT having my ass handed to me by someone else.

So I guess there’s that… :exploding_head:

New Bill in SC congress & about time :grinning: — Additional fees may be coming for incoming South Carolina residents who want to legally drive on their new home state’s roads.

Droves of newcomers have made South Carolina one of the nation’s fastest-growing states.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, over 129,000 people moved to South Carolina in 2019, largely from North Carolina and Georgia.

A bill dubbed the “Yankee tax” could require the newest Palmetto State locals to pay $500 total in one-time fees for new driver’s licenses and vehicle registration.

Republican Sen. Stephen Goldfinch says his proposal seeks to ensure the new neighbors pay their fair share for infrastructure already funded by existing

And THAT’S why we retire to Tennessee instead. Idiots.

And why the hell dub it a “Yankee Tax” when most of the new people are from North Carolina and Georgia? Again, idiots.

If you lived here you’d understand & I won’t even take the time to explain it. :thinking:

I’m down there every year. The traffic is worse every year and I’m sure you guts hate it. But that’s everywhere anymore so get used to it. And how does it make any sense to punish the people who move there but let all the tourists skate? Just raise the gas tax and EVERYBODY pays their fair share. The other way makes absolutely zero sense. I’m all for voting Republican, but this guy sounds like a true jackass.

One of the reasons people may have moved there is to escape draconian taxes. Taxing them for just moving there goes along the same lines as Newscum in commiefornia who wants to tax every citizen who moves out. Dumbass idea IMHO.

But, but, butt … I’d love it if Texas adopted this disincentivation strategy. And, I only sorta jest - I tire of folks moving here for a better life without any comprehension of why life is better here.

We all hate the a$$holes who move to a better area, and vote the same way they did that made their area a $hithole in the first place. Makes no sense, and libitards usually don’t. But punishing everyone who moved there is asinine.

I’m with @Ironbutt70 here. Imagine trying to move from California to South Carolina if all these jagoff politicians got these laws into place. Especially maybe a family trying to start over getting a good opportunity? Kinda killing the American dream with all this not in my backyard bull$hit.

I can’t disagree at all with your remark.

If I remember right :thinking: Years back Florida did something similar by charging a rather large fee for 1st time registration of a new vehicle in Florida.
Been so long ago I can’t remember the exact particulars. But it did not go over well.

This, but feel the concept applies more universally. Genuinely amazing how many people this is lost on…and not only why it’s better, but also what’s been sacrificed to allow for it as well as the responsibility of all in maintaining it.
