Overnight Open Thread (06-05-2017)

I don't care about Uber at all. There are already competitors entering the segment, so if it goes belly up it will inconvenience me not at all. So I got a chuckle when reading 'No Uber Oakland' kicks off campaign with list of demands. Apparently Uber, in its infinite wisdom, has decided to expand its headquarters from San Francisco and its peculiar brand of insanity, to Oakland, which may be the craziest, most activist-controlled city in the country.

"We want to hold them accountable to some of the things the community wishes they were doing," said Orson Aguilar, president of Oakland's Greenlining Institute, which is one of the organizations in the coalition. "A company like Uber wants to move to Oakland, it should really roll up its sleeves and work with Oakland."

Oh, absolutely! Because businesses should be controlled by THE PEOPLE!
But there's more!
"They have a responsibility to cities like Oakland to keep them diverse and creative," Aguilar said.

Yup. Because the primary function of a corporation is not to enhance shareholder value, but rather to reinforce the progressive policies of the rapidly decaying metropolitan area in which the corporation is located.

I swear I found this about three days ago, but then the entire world picked it up. But I'll be damned if I am going to bail on such a cool picture just because every other media outlet on the entire planet has published this photo already.

Cases like this are ground-zero in the fight against the leviathan and the unelected bureaucrats who constantly expand their powers.
California farmer faces $2.8 million fine for plowing his own field
John Duarte bought 450 acres of land in 2012, but some of the property is part of the drainage for Coyote and Oat creeks and is considered "waters of the United States" according to the Clean Water Act. To make matters worse, an endangered species know as "fairy shrimp" were supposedly living in those wetlands.

When Duarte plowed his own field on land he purchased with his own funds, the Army Corps of Engineers sent the farmer a cease and desist letter. Duarte sued, the feds counter-sued, and now an American farmer is facing a $2.8 million penalty for plowing his own field.


Fairy Shrimp? You have got to be shitting me!
