People’s Republik Of California: Say Goodbye To Your Gas Mowers And Lawn Implements

You know, this is For Your Own Good. That seems familiar. The definition of Progressivism is “Nice Fascism”. That doesn’t mean these are nice people, it means they’ll run your life for you own good. It makes sense when mom and dad do this when you’re a kid. Not when you’re an adult. But, hey, a goodly chunk of you moonbats in California keep voting for this stuff

California law bans small off-road gas engines, including lawnmowers and chainsaws

California took another step toward its goal of ridding the state of all gas-powered engines thanks to a new bill signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom on Saturday.

The new law will ban the sale of all off-road, gas-powered engines, including generators, lawn equipment, pressure washers, chainsaws, weed trimmers, and even golf carts. Under the new law, these machines must be zero-emissions, meaning they will have to be either battery-powered or plug-in, according to the Los Angeles Times.

China is very pleased, since they produce a lot of the precious metals, batteries, and devices that will comply.

The new law is expected to affect nearly 50,000 small businesses. California’s budget includes $30 million to help professional landscapers and gardeners quit using gas-powered equipment, but even then, the budget is still not capable of bearing the full financial burden.

And what becomes of all the dead battery powered machines, which never seem to last as long, as well as the batteries? Just dump them in the landfill? Great idea! Say, will the government of the PRC stop using all these devices? They can jack up taxes to pay for it

The National Association of Landscape Professionals also noted how zero-emission commercial equipment is both more expensive and less efficient than gas-powered equipment. A gas-powered riding lawn mower costs between $7,000-$11,000 while the zero-emissions version costs more than twice that amount, according to the outlet.

And, you have to purchase them more often. Remember how Warmists said that all this stuff won’t cost people more? Huh.

Meanwhile in the PRC

Big California retailers must offer gender-neutral children’s aisles under new law

Gov. Gavin Newsom on Saturday signed a law that requires large California retailers to maintain gender neutral toy and childcare sections.

The new law, Assembly Bill 1084, requires that retailers with 500 or more employees in the state of California “maintain a gender neutral section or area, to be labeled at the discretion of the retailer, in which a reasonable selection of the items and toys for children that it sells shall be displayed, regardless of whether they have been traditionally marketed for either girls or for boys,” according to the legislative counsel’s digest. (snip)

One of the most vocal opponents of the law was the conservative California Family Council, which said that the bill was a marketing scheme by Rob Smith, the proprietor of The Phluid Project, to sell his gender-neutral clothing.

“You have to give Rob Smith credit; he’s found quite an audacious marketing plan in asking Sacramento to force California retailers to make room for his products,” California Family Council President Jonathan Keller said in a statement. “But activists and state legislators have no right to force retailers to espouse government-approved messages about gender. It’s a violation of free speech and it’s just plain wrong.”

The people of the PRC keep voting for this stuff.

    This has to stop. These California people are moving to other states and will be doing the same here.

    We have a 960,000 acre + timber fire burning here in the north(sane) half of this shithole. Crews have been working it since July. Would be interesting to see the fallers with their electric saws dropping trees in a wildfire and fire crews with solar powered float pumps charging a hose lay. I would imagine that there are exemptions for that, after the laws are thee, not for me.

    Our esteemed host asked:

    what becomes of all the dead battery powered machines, which never seem to last as long, as well as the batteries?

    I bought one of those things, when I lived in Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, and had a small backyard.

    The lawnmower was stored in a shed underneath what used to be a side/back porch, and was now the enclosed laundry room. Not particularly liking the fact that I was storing a can of gasoline under the house, I said to myself, “Self, why don’t you get one of them new fangled battery powered mowlawners.”

    So I did.

    It lasted two summers. Being oh-so-green, I bought another, which also lasted two summers. F(ornicate) that! My next one was a gasoline-powered mower, which lasted for years, and which I brought to the Bluegrass State with me. I cleaned it up after it went through the flood, and it still works!

    Now some places are selling these with detachable batteries, which means that if the battery dies, you can replace just that and not the whole contraption.

    Of course, people lawn their mow during the summer, when the Pyrite State is already having to ration sparktricity through rolling blackouts, so, naturally, the left want you to have more things to plug in and charge!

    People who have to beg water from other states shouldnt have lawns, golf courses, car washes or agriculture in areas where local rainfall and irrigation is unsustainable. Problem solved.

    Of course, california wouldnt have this problem if they just deported their illegal population.
