THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CALIFORNIA - This site is dedicated to exposing the continuing Marxist Revolution in California and the all around massive stupidity of Socialists, Luddites, Communists, Fellow Travelers and of Liberalism in all of its ugly forms.

"It was a splendid population - for all the slow, sleepy, sluggish-brained sloths stayed at home - you never find that sort of people among pioneers - you cannot build pioneers out of that sort of material. It was that population that gave to California a name for getting up astounding enterprises and rushing them through with a magnificent dash and daring and a recklessness of cost or consequences, which she bears unto this day - and when she projects a new surprise the grave world smiles as usual and says, "Well, that is California all over."

Big Brother lives in San Jose

Buying a bottle of wine or six-pack of beer could get tougher for residents of San Jose, California.

The San Jose Mercury News reports the city council is considering a proposal that would restrict new liquor licenses to grocery stores and other "full service markets." Convenience, drug and liquor stores would no longer be able to get them.

Big Brother government just can't let people alone.  If a drug store wants to sell a legal product like beer what the Hell business is it of the government?

San Jose officials say placing limits on liquor licenses would give grocery stores an incentive to locate in neighborhoods that don't have grocers or large retailers.

But Councilman Pete Constant says the proposal is a form of social engineering that could hurt the city's efforts to attract new businesses.

The city council is expected to vote on the proposal this fall as part of an update to the city's general plan.
