And theres the real reason for the law...

The real reason for every damn law...

Friggin money...


The legalized extortion of the financially oppressed sheeple...

A ban on outdoor smoking?!

The davis city council thinks it owns and regulates earths atmosphere?!

How much cash are they monetarily raping the offenders of that insane law?!

Will they ever ban their children from being sent off to die in oil wars?

Of course f###en not!

Continue living in denial of the real problems instead!
