Dear Editor:

In California it's against the law for a restaurant to offer me a plastic straw but it's OK for me to use plastic Keurig coffee pods and buy tons of plastic water bottles.

It’s against the law for a grocery store to give me a micro-thin plastic bag for free, but it’s OK for them to sell me a plastic bag for a few pennies that is 20 times as thick.

California is going to fine citizens billions a year for not having health insurance and paying for their own medical care, but they are going to provide free health care/insurance for those in the country illegally.

Driver's licenses are provided to people in the country illegally, and you can list your sex as “X”, but I have to bring my original birth certificate, social security card, and two utility bills to get my Real CA driver's license.

It’s OK for a homeless person to build a house next to the river out of plywood and tarps on property they don't own, but I have to pull a permit and pay fees to have an inspection if I do something as simple as replacing a window on my own property.

In San Francisco it's OK to poop on the street but it's against the law to spit.

You will be fined if your dog poops and you don't clean it up; but you poop on the sidewalk, it's OK!
