Do you remember California State Assemblyman Tom Ammiano (D-San Francisco), an out homosexual and an LBGT rights activist, who proposed a bill, AB 460, that requires health insurers to offer infertility treatment for homosexual couples, although gay couples can’t reproduce?
Ammiano is now expanding his ridiculous legislative ventures to a Homeless Bill of Rights, Assembly Bill 5, in support of peeing in public places like sidewalks.
From AB 5:
p style=”padding-left:30px;”>(f) The right to engage in life sustaining activities that must be carried out in public spaces because of homelessness, including, but not limited to, eating, congregating, possessing and storing personal property, urinating, or collecting and possessing goods for recycling
By “public space” is meant “space that is predominantly within the public domain or that is held open to the public, including, but not limited to, plazas, courtyards, parking lots, sidewalks, public transportation, public buildings and parks.”
In other words, AB 5 would make it lawful in California to pee, not just on sidewalks, but also in buses, trains, subway, bus and train terminals, airports, city hall, and the DMV!
But AB 5’s right to public urination isn’t just for “the homeless.” The bill expands the definition of homeless to include as many people as possible, including those living in “substandard apartments, dwellings, doubled up temporarily with friends or families, or staying in transitional housing programs. ‘Homeless’ means any person staying in a residential hotel without tenancy rights, and families with children staying in a residential hotel whether or not they have tenancy rights.”
A close reading of the bill actually suggests that it legalizes public urination for everyone, as it specifies these rights, including the right to drag around shopping carts full of bottles and cans and urinate in public to “Every person in the state, regardless of actual or perceived housing status.”
AB 5 will turn the State of California into a gigantic urinal.
If this lunatic bill passes, you just wait and see, it’ll be amended to include the right to public defecation.
