California Coastal Commission- engineers without a permit

Tuesday, April 28th, 2009

California Coastal Commission’s boots were made for walking over California’s coastal families… like the song says:

One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you.

With regulatory commissions like the California Coastal Commission bulldozing what is left of our freedom and constitutional rights at every turn, Is it any wonder that California ranks 47th out of the 50 states in terms of overall freedom?

According to a recently published study, California aggressively interferes in the personal lives of its citizens. Political science professors William Ruger, of Texas State University, and Jason Sorens, of the State University of New York, accounted for factors including regulations, state fiscal policies and the protection of rights.

We develop and justify our ratings and aggregation procedure on explicitly normative criteria, defining individual freedom as the ability to dispose of one’s own life, liberty, and justly acquired property however one sees fit, so long as one does not coercively infringe on another individual’s ability to do the same.

Only residents of Rhode Island, New Jersey and New York were classified as having less freedom than Californians.

The three freest states, in order, were New Hampshire, Colorado and South Dakota.

California ranked 48th in the nation on economic freedom, 46th on regulatory policy freedom, 44th on fiscal policy freedom, and 37th on personal freedom.

Categories most out of line with the rest of the country are public safety, natural resources and environment, and administration.

Now that’s some Sin of Commission.

Are you ready boots?  Start walking!
