Facepalm: Liberals in San Francisco sink to a new low with their most recent ban…


What the…

How far will the government go to infringe on your rights?

In San Francisco, residents aren’t even allowed to store their own belongings in their home.

Residents of the liberal city are banned from using their garage to store any personal property other than a vehicle. Chapter Six of the San Francisco Housing Code states, “Private and public storage garages in apartment houses and hotels shall be used only for storage of automobiles.” Those who violate the law can be slapped with a $500 fine.

So, every time San Francisco residents store their bikes, tools, lawn mowers and other items in their garage, they are breaking the law.

What ever happened to property rights?

Our Founding Fathers are rolling in their graves over how big the nanny state has become.

        There are dumb laws that people ignore, and then there are dumb laws that people follow. The former are usually ones that were passed decades ago and haven’t been taken off the book, the latter are dumb but actually enforced.

        They aren’t going to legislate something and then ignore it (if they take the time to pass something like this in today’s age you can bet they will enforce it).

            Ummm…actually I’m to a liberal and see BOTH liberals AND conservatives love placing labels on things…ever heard of ‘Obamacare’? The point of the ‘Christian Sharia’ statement is to bring to the forefront that forcing ANY laws on people that are based on religion – whether it be Islamic laws OR Christian (or ANY for that matter) is WRONG. Therefore if you have a problem with homosexuality, abortion, women’s clothing, marriage, education based on SCIENCE, etc. and want to legislate against these things, you are just establishing laws that follow CHRISTIANITY…which is the same as wanting to establish laws that follow Islam.

          • Ignorance is a Choice

            The laws that you live under in this country were founded through principals that were directly based on the tolerance of Christianity. You are ignorant to our collective history and ancestry if you fail to understand that. If we had been founded on Islamic Sharia you would already have been beheaded….or worse.

          • Sore Thumb

            Funny word choice with “Christian tolerance,” Especially since the people who founded this nation questioned the moral principles of Christianity. Franklin, Jefferson, Adams, all believed in the concept of a God, but all began to believe the moral teachings of Christianity were becoming outdated (which they have, as have all religions’) and none believed Jesus of Nazareth was a divine figure. The principles you speak of are nonexistent — you are ignorant of our country’s history and principles if you fail to understand that one of the fundamental and foundational tenets of it is religious freedom — the reason we fled Great Britain, the reason we fought the Revolutionary War (aside from governmental representation).

            It’s also funny that everybody has failed to notice that this building code applies only to apartment buildings and hotels, meaning that these parking garage spaces are shared. Additionally, the people who write these codes aren’t elected to public office, they are city planning and development consultants for the planning and zoning department. When it comes down to building codes, liberal and conservative doesn’t matter. Several cities in Texas also have a similar law to the one you’ve just read above and seem to be getting so angry about that you argue it infringes on the nation’s underpinnings and religious principles — of which there are none.

            You probably already don’t like me because I’m a liberal and an atheist, but that doesn’t change the fact that our country is one of religious freedom, not Christianity — and relatively silly minor building codes.

          • Ignorance is a Choice

            “The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity. I will avow that I then believed, and now believe, that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God.”
            –Thomas Jefferson, The Writings of Thomas Jefferson (Washington D. C.: The Thomas Jefferson Memorial Association, 1904), Vol. XIII, p. 292-294. In a letter from John Adams to Thomas Jefferson on June 28, 1813.

            “I am a real Christian – that is to say, a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus Christ.”
            –The Writings of Thomas Jefferson, p. 385

            “As to Jesus of Nazareth, my opinion of whom you particularly desire, I think the system of morals and his religion, as he left them to us, is the best the world ever saw, or is likely to see;

            “But I apprehend it has received various corrupting changes, and I have, with most of the present dissenters in England, some doubts as to his divinity; though it is a question I do not dogmatize upon, having never studied it, and think it needless to busy myself with it now, when I expect soon an opportunity of knowing the truth with less trouble. I see no harm, however, in its being believed, if that belief has the good consequence, as probably it has, of making his doctrines more respected and more observed; especially as I do not perceive, that the Supreme takes it amiss, by distinguishing the unbelievers in his government of the world with any peculiar marks of his displeasure.”
            –Benjamin Franklin wrote this in a letter to Ezra Stiles, President of Yale University on March 9, 1790

          • Sore Thumb

            “Where the preamble declares, that coercion is a departure from the plan of the holy author of our religion, an amendment was proposed by inserting “Jesus Christ,” so that it would read “A departure from the plan of Jesus Christ, the holy author of our religion;” the insertion was rejected by the great majority, in proof that they meant to comprehend, within the mantle of its protection, the Jew and the Gentile, the Christian and Mohammedan, the Hindoo and Infidel of every denomination.”
            –Thomas Jefferson, Autobiography, in reference to the Virginia Act for Religious Freedom

            “The question before the human race is, whether the God of nature shall govern the world by his own laws, or whether priests and kings shall rule it by fictitious miracles?”
            – John Adams, letter to Thomas Jefferson, June 20, 1815

            Thirteen governments [of the original states] thus founded on the natural authority of the people alone, without a pretence of miracle or mystery, and which are destined to spread over the northern part of that whole quarter of the globe, are a great point gained in favor of the rights of mankind.
            – John Adams, “A Defence of the Constitutions of Government of the United States of America” (1787-88)

            “I confide that you will not expose me to criticism and censure by publishing any part of this communication to you. I have ever let others enjoy their religious sentiments, without reflecting on them for those that appeared to me unsupportable and even absurd. All sects here, and we have a great variety, have experienced my good will in assisting them with subscriptions for building their new places of worship; and, as I never opposed any of their doctrines, I hope to go out of the world in peace with them all.”

          • mdy616

            Sorry Carol, the laws in the United States were founded on Christian ideals. But you see, the huge difference between Christian based laws and sharia; Christianity is based on love one another while sharia is based on kill one another. Remember that everyone is created equal thing? Christian based. Remember that little thing about stone the homosexuals and the rape victims? Sharia. Hope this helps you understand just a little bit better the laws of this country and where they came from.

          • Sore Thumb

            Selective memory is an interesting thing. You would be surprised how similar Christianity and Islam are. There are radicals and extremists of every religion that make the entire group look bad. Westboro Baptist Church? Remember the Crusades?

            Only difference between us and Islamic-ruled nations is that we are one of religious freedom (not Christianity) and they are forced to abide by the Quran.

          • Nan

            Yeah, the funny thing that people forget about the Crusades is that they were a response to Muslim looting, pillaging, raping and murder in the Holy Land.

          • bobbymike34

            The very fact they bring up the Crusades shows how weak their arguments are; “Christians are so bad let me go back 900 YEARS and show you.”
            Muslins/Islam/Sharia killing thousands every year and causing human suffering unmatched in history. Oh ya but 900 years ago these Christians blah, blah, blah. Laughable.

          • mdy616

            Yes, Westboro, one small group out of thousands. Radical islam? Thousands of radical groups and almost no muslims speaking out. Westboro? Christians showing up everywhere they went to put up a blockade. You mention the crusades. Are you aware the crusades were in response to muslims invading countries and murdering the people who refused to convert. The Catholics tried to reclaim the land taken by muslims in their jihad against Catholics. Remember the U.S. Marines? They were used to repel the muslim pirates that were attacking American ships (and other countries) trading in Mediterranean ports. Your analogy of islam and Christianity does not hold water. As I said earlier, Christianity is a religion of love and islam is a “religion” of hate. It always was and continues to be. You cannot deny it if you have ever read the Quran and the Bible.

          • Sore Thumb

            The crusades were an aggression against the rest of Europe to expand Christiandom prompted by Urban II. It wasn’t about Islam, it was about anything non-Christian. Pagans, Jews, Muslim, Atheist, it didn’t matter — many were taken simply for political disagreement. The assertion that Jerusalem as a “holy land” belonged to anyone is counterproductive to solving any problems. There are fights ongoing to this day because of unsolvable disputes over religious land.

            And I have read both the Quran and the Bible, I’ll share with you a few relevant passages:

            Anyone arrogant enough to reject the verdict of the judge or of the priest who represents the LORD your God must be put to death. Such evil must be purged from Israel. (Deuteronomy 17:12)

            They entered into a covenant to seek the Lord, the God of their fathers, with all their heart and soul; and everyone who would not seek the Lord, the God of Israel, was to be put to death, whether small or great, whether man or woman. (2 Chronicles 15:12-13)

            Whoever sacrifices to any god, except the Lord alone, shall be doomed. (Exodus 22:19 NAB)

            When they came to the threshing floor of Nodan, Uzzah reached out his hand to the ark of God to steady it, for the oxen were making it tip. But the Lord was angry with Uzzah; God struck him on that spot, and he died there before God. (2 Samuel 6:6-7)

            “And do good unto your parents, and near of kin, and unto orphans, and the needy, and the neighbour from among your own people, and the neighbour who is a stranger, 47 and the friend by your side, and the wayfarer, and those whom you rightfully possess” Qur’an (Surah 4)

            “O mankind! Allah created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know each other (not that you despise each other). Verily the most honored of you in the sight of Allah is (he who is) the most righteous of you. And Allah has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things).” Qur’an (49:13)

            “…and you should forgive and overlook: Do you not like God to forgive you? And Allah is The Merciful Forgiving.” Qur’an (Surah 24, “The Light,” v. 22)

            I’m not attacking you for your religious beliefs, I’m not asking you to change them. I just want to open your narrow mind. Christianity and Islam or any other religion, for that matter, are very similar — all the same teachings are in their books, the same god, even, only the messengers are different.

          • IrishBoss

            You know next to nothing about the Crusades. I suspect Peter the Hermit is as far as you progressed in your studies.

          • Ignorance is a Choice

            Funny. I don’t recall former Westboro Baptist leader and five time Democrat candidate for elected office, Fred Phelps ever beheading anyone or executing non-Christians for their apostasy.

          • Sore Thumb

If you honestly believe that the the definition of religion can be applied to science and Atheism, then it can be applied to anything. If it can be applied to everything, then it loses its meaning. Just because you can’t see the world without your religion lenses on, doesn’t mean that everything that doesn’t agree with your beliefs is a religion.

          • Randy Stephenson

            Yes they do but some refuse to accept it. They both have rituals, atheism preaches “no GOD” , continually goes to court to sue on that, hence, ritual, Science uses the ritual of experimentation also ritualistic, and the belief of unproven theories as fact IE evolution.

            Lit per — It seems that you could type for days about how evil christianity is (over 4500 comments?). Im sure that you’re going to keep on posting the hate and frankly Im somewhat glad. Id rather see someone explore the option with conviction than accept christianity and only think about their faith on sundays. I am a Christian, and no–I don’t have any brain damage. Yes, Christians are horrible people. Im horrible, my neighbors are horrible and even though you probably don’t want to admit it, you’re horrible too. Thats part of what makes my faith so important to me. Without Christ I am lost. Do christians act in ways that are contrary to His Word? Absolutely. Im willing to bet that most of the things that “christians” do that upset you,, are things that aren’t inherently christian. Jesus himself hung out with the thieves and prostitutes. Oh, and he served them. Picture this, If (for the sake of your homosexual comment) , a homosexual man were to need a ride or help with a rent check,, the christian thing to do would be to help him out. If some crackhead pulls a gun on you in the street, the christian thing to do would be to offer him your coat also. I realize this is getting long, so Ill get down to it. I don’t want to control others or tell you how to live. I don’t want to force the morality that I am called to follow (imperfectly I might add) upon you. The best I can do is share what I do and what I believe. If you would like to rant about christianity, or discuss abortion, or homosexuality or whatever,, I would enjoy talking to you about it. Im rather strapped for time because I have rather important exam on june 2, but I could talk to you after that. In the meantime, Ill keep you in my prayers.

            “Do christians act in ways that are contrary to His Word? Absolutely. Im willing to bet that most of the things that “christians” do that upset you,, are things that aren’t inherently christian.”
            - I am a Christian, and it is my opinion that killing is wrong. If you are completely realistic, you might acknowledge that most self-proclaimed christians are generally anti-murder. Its actually one of the ten commandments. Heck its why people feel so strongly about abortion.
            - So here i will mention this again, I have a lot on my plate right now. I have my usmle step 1 exam in just a few days but I will check back here daily to see if you would like to talk about the issues that are distressing you regarding Christians. If you would like to talk on the phone or Skype or text, I would enjoy the opportunity to share what Christ means to me and what he could mean to you.I can’t speak for all christians.. and I can’t defend every Christian’s mistake but I can tell you that there are a lot of Christians out here who’s greatest goal in life is to serve others just as Christ has served us. We aspire to love our neighbors as ourselves (regardless of their age,race,sexual orientation or religious beliefs). Just let me know and Ill leave a way for you to get into contact with me, God bless my friend.

            Humanity does not have the best track record on this issue. Nearly every religion that exists has had certain groups of people at certain times who made their religion into a tool for them to gain power over others. In human history, this has been the standard operating procedure, because there’s always someone who wants power and is willing to use religion to get it. When power is no longer humanity’s goal, then maybe humankind can progress past all this and get our act together.

    Notice that this only applies to apartment garages and hotels…It sounds like it’s attempting to protect the rights of the property owners’ (landlords). I don’t know enough about it to have an opinion one way or another, but this article seems to have totally misrepresented this law.

    • brainy37

      It’s definitely a landlord created law. It was intended to keep apartment residents from doing anything other than keeping a car in the garage. You can’t build a workshop, use it as storage, or throw down a cot if you need room for visitors. In most other States that would be a violation of renters rights unless it was agreed upon during the initial contract with the landlord. For the city to make a large sweeping code like that is asinine. But then it’s SF and they have some VERY odd property law on the books. If you thought home owners associations were bad, they take inspiration for SF and the rest of California property law.

    • Bryan Smith

      I don’t have a problem with apartment managers and owners imposing this on their renters. They sign a lease and agree to it. My problem is the government imposing it. It’s just another money grab by the government, IMO.

    • http://facebook.com/dballing/ Derek Balling

      They are trying to implement that ‘mile’ tax in NC too. Which is BS, because it’s just another tax on the poor!!!

      Where I’m at, (38 mi north of Raleigh, near the VA boarder) it’s half the cost for a home with extra yard space, and a larger floor plan, rather than cramped Raleigh, in an apartment with no yard, and lots of noise and drama. I’d like to live there it’d shave an hour and a half from my already 11 hour day at work. But I can’t afford to, so now you tax me b/c I do live farther away!??!?!
      How about when I travel to Maryland for work, and training multiple times a year. Will they tax me for my out of state miles to, and if not, how would THEY know? Ohh now they want GPS tracking on my car, issued by the gov’t … *SIGH*

        So, every time San Francisco residents store their bikes, tools, lawn mowers and other items in their garage, they are breaking the law.
        I can guarantee that both people with lawnmowers do not live in an apt or a hotel, and that not all SF residents live in apartments. of course the text he copied and pasted was the same as the source, it was his own understanding that failed, or a deliberate attempt to trick people, seeing how many home-owners replied saying they are shocked and appalled. If he knew it was only people living in other people’s property, then this is at best senastionalistic trash. If he thought it was apartment, houses, and hotels, he read it wrong. The people replying as if this affects home-owners read it wrong, the people thinking this happened any time after 2007 read it wrong, and your defense of those people shows that you think the misrepresentation is fine, or you read it wrong too and got overly defensive. Nice try though

        • Bryan Schmick

          Sorry. Your words, not mine. You implied the article author did not fact check because they left out the part where it only applies to apartments and hotels.

I guess that cuts into the storage industry’s profits in land poor SF and their donations.Poor try to justify a bad law.

  • GlassHouses

    Ok…so while I think apartment and hotel building owners (not renters) should have the right to say what can and cannot be stored in garages, this particular statute applies to HOTELS and APARTMENTS. Meaning this does NOT apply to the average homeowner storing a bike or lawn mower in their homes garage if they own the home (or even rent the home, as a single occupancy dwelling does not constitute an apartment building). If we’re going to fight the idiocy on the left, insinuating that this applies to all private homeowners, when it clearly doesn’t is, in my opinion, the same as calling Mark Cuban out as racist. The arguements get old (i.e. you don’t agree with Obama, you must be a racist) when on their face they’re not exactly what they seem and are blown way out of proportion.

    • Bryan Schmick

      If a person owns an apartment/garage and rents them out, it does apply. The city decides what can be stored in that person’s garage. Your comment does raise an interesting point though. The definition of private. In government speak, public means government owned and private means citizen(s) owned. The (s) includes anything jointly owned by more than one person/couple. Yes, this is the government telling the citizens what can be stored in privately owned garages.

  • Chris

    Hi. I read the article and it seems either that the authors are misrepresenting or misunderstand this section of the San Francisco municipal code. The authors of the article seem to think that this section of the municipal code strip city residents of private rights. This portion of the city code was instituted for public safety arising from the fact that SF ha a history of earthquakes, it is not a codification of private property being converted to public property. Secondly, the link “Chapter 6″ does not go to a city website it links to a website that was created by a lay person–and that lay persons interpretation of the municipal code. Moreover, the layout of the website intentionally misdirects the reading audience to believe that this section of the code is specifically about garages; in reality this section of the code concerns Structural Maintenance and Housing Code Safety to protect and provide for the public safety.

    As reported widely in the news San Francisco is a booming industry of private tech companies and innovation. To the point that the poor are being exploited and displaced. So when the authors of the article claim that it is a liberal haven where private property is seized under municipal codes I do not think they have the slightest idea. If anything, San Francisco’s prosperity is due to a burgeoning renaissance of property induced high capital earning young techies that are all about that materialist lifestyle.

    In addition these codified laws were created in 1989 state-wide when CA had a Republican Governor, George Deukmejian (R).

The authors of the article seem to think that this section of the municipal code strip city residents of private rights. This portion of the city code was instituted for public safety arising from the fact that SF has a history of earthquakes, it is not a codification of private property being converted to public property. Secondly, the link “Chapter 6″ does not go to a city website it links to a website that was created by a lay person–and that lay persons interpretation of the municipal code. Moreover, the layout of the website intentionally misdirects the reading audience to believe that this section of the code is specifically about garages; in reality this section of the code concerns Structural Maintenance and Housing Code Safety to protect and provide for the public safety.

    As reported widely in the news San Francisco is a booming industry of private tech companies and innovation. To the point that the poor are being exploited and displaced. So when the authors of the article claim that SF is a liberal haven where private property is seized under municipal codes I do not think they have the slightest idea. If anything, San Francisco’s prosperity is due to a burgeoning renaissance of property induced high capital earning young techies that are all about that materialist lifestyle.

    In addition, these codified laws were created in 1989 state-wide when CA had a Republican Governor, George Deukmejian (R).

    Since the discussion has departed from the original topic and moved into Christian discussions, let me throw this out there –
    I wonder how many how many of those in the LGBT community that support the Muslim Sharia law movement understand that once it is in place, they will be beheaded for their sexual orientation?
    Don’t believe me? Look it up for yourselves ……. it is age old Sharia law!

      How does storing a green bicycle, moving boxes, or empty suitcases in a garage increase the city wide damage from an earthquake. If it does, shouldn’t it also apply to privately owned garages?

      As far as helping the poor, consider the wealth breakdown of those that own garages vs rent them.

      San Francisco’s wealth is based on a great harbor, limited land jacking up costs and tax revenues, an ideal climate, tourism, and the influence of money.

      It is interesting that you claim SFs wealth as a benefit of young people living materialistic lives (i.e. capitalist instead of socialist).

      Your last jab is interesting. It’s OK because a Republican was the governor of the state when a city made the original city (not state) ordinance? For the record, the Mayor of SF at the time was Dianne Feinstein. A liberal now serving as a D Senator.

      • Chris

        There are so many things wrong with your rebuttal it is actually comical. I’ll do a more rooted reply when I have time to muse your obviously defunct analysis. You seem unable to construct a causal analysis. Yes, SF’s basis for trade wealth is a harbor and a port.. but the reason it is an entrepot point is not because there is a harbor… it’s because of the commercial wealth and activity that occurs in the city… i.e.the young techies. Ships, people, and financial capital flow from SF because of the tech industry. I can refer some economic models and forbes data charts to you if you have a problem understanding.

        Moreover, the city ordinance does not concern privately owned homes… it concerns apartment homes and hotels… meaning that it is an ordinance that is established to protect privately owned facilities from public use… obviously you did not read the city ordinance.

        In addition, you failed also to do your legislative research. the city ordinance was enacted as directed by the State Legislature and the Office of the Governor…. both of which were controlled by a Republican Majority… You don’t seem to be very bright. #SorryBoutIt

        • Bryan Schmick

          Speaking of not very bright. Yes, I noticed you failed to address some points. Like the comment on your ridiculous earthquake comment. That too was comical. Also noticed you dropped the line about SF helping the poor.
          Speaking of not very bright. So you say that a fantastic harbor helped it’s financial growth, then say the financial growth was not because of the great harbor and the trade it caused. Comical also.
          Privately owned homes – congratulations, you repeated something the author said. Rentals and Hotels. Finally, you repeated something bright. However, if that privately owned garage is rented, the city tells the owner and renter what can be stored in it (LOL – for earthquake reasons of course like you said).
          So the Republican governor and legislature (back when California was the Golden State – not so much since the Dems took over) told SF (and only SF) that garages that are rented out can only contain cars and the liberals had no problem with that. What were Mayor Feinstein’s complaints and speeches against it? What was the bill stating SF could not rent out garages to non car usage.

        • Bryan Schmick

          Still waiting for you to defend how a bicycle stored in a rented garage is an earthquake risk while a bicycle stored in an owned garage isn’t.

          Still waiting for you to specify how this helps the poor people.

          Still waiting for justification about your claim that it was a Republican governor that created an SF city ordinance under a Democrat (Dianne Feinstein – now Senator) mayor.

          Speaking of comical, lets discuss your general debate strategy. First, you say the law isn’t all that bad, then you blame the horrible law on the Republicans in a different level of government.

    Make no mistake about where I’m coming from, and this IS pretty lame, but to be fair, it isn’t about how you use your own private property, it specifies apartments and hotels, which you do NOT own. I can see a valid reason for ensuring that residents don’t crap up the place with junk, especially stuff like cans of paint which could pose a fire hazard — especially in an earthquake. Now, why this has to be a matter of law and not just part of the lease or rental agreement with the tenant, I’m not sure — maybe it does just go back to public safety concerns.

    • Bryan Schmick

      The owners of the rented garages are not allowed a say about what is stored in their property.

    The gestapo is alive and well in SanFrancisco. I’m embarrassed this is even part of our supposed “free country”.

    There are no such thing as property rights in commiefornia.

  • ridleyguy

    Imagine being the law enforcement officer in front of the judge. Yes your honor, the defendant did willfully and knowingly put his lawn mower back into the garage. We had the subject under surveillance after while on routine patrol we saw him mowing his lawn. We then positioned officers in positions with full view of the garage. As you can see from exhibit one, this is the defendant opening garage. In exhibit two, this video clearly demonstrates the defendant pushing the lawn mower into the garage.

    Also let the record reflect this was a carbon emitting non electric or battery operated mower,

    The prosecution rests.

      Are items stored in a car in the garage OK?

  • CTConservatives47

    And they call themselves “liberals.”

  • mark345

    Residents of San Francisco can store all that stuff in their rectums.

  • Kile

    How is this even enforceable?

  • guest

    Hey, It’s been a while since anyone pointed this out now. The law does not read “apartments and houses. It says “apartment houses”referring to apartment complexes and multiple family homes. Private homes have nothing to do with this. And anyone who lives in an apartment complex understands that you don’t generally get to store things in the garage. If there is storage it’s usually a basement or other area specified for storage.

    It’s all about control! Control of the people! But let vice and criminals run free at taxpayer expense! Who’s brother – in -law needed a New city job?

  • bobbyj

    Ummm….the ordinance applies to “apartment houses and hotels.” Does NOT apply to private homes even if rented. Not sure what the problem is. Sounds like prudent safety measures. Don’t want the restriction? Go buy your own property.

  • SomeRandomGuy

    That building code is from 2007. And without a comma between apartment and house, it only appears to apply to apartment buildings (houses) and hotels. Not to single family homes or duplexes.
