    Government "Cure" Is Worse than the Disease

    Peak Buffoonery: Paddleboarder in Ocean Off Malibu Is Arrested for Not Socially Distancing
    .
    A couple of weeks ago, thousands of people swarmed the Southern California beaches to get some fresh air and get their minds off the coronavirus for awhile.

    In response to some people not socially distancing, the Commissars of California closed the beaches.

    Since then, miles of police tape have been deployed to cut off parking lots, bike paths, hiking trails, and mountain-bike trails to prevent people from going to these places and getting a little exercise for fear they may get too close to each other.

    Drones are being sent up to spy on scofflaws.

    There's no surfing allowed. Surfing. A sport that requires social distancing is outlawed. Thousands of kids in Southern California who are required to get physical activity to get their virtual school PE credits are not allowed to surf.

    And don't even think about standing on the other side of a tennis court and hitting balls.

    Forget swimming, the pools are closed.

    Which brings us to a paddleboarder in the Malibu area of LA County. To be clear, he was in the ocean off the coast of Malibu, minding his own business and paddleboarding by himself.

    Well, he was alone until the cops and lifeguards came. They corralled the paddleboarder with the use of two lifeguard boats.

    [If you can't see the pictures, right click and select "View Image."]

    KTLA reports that the paddleboarder was accused of ignoring the call of lifeguards to get out of the ocean because he wasn't staying socially distanced in the age of the CORONAVIRUS!

    Socially distanced like this, apparently. In the middle of a cop sandwich. He'll take his with extra mustard and some handcuffs.



    KTLA reports the arrested paddleboarder was booked and then released and ordered to appear in court:
    .
    Officials did not release any identifying information on the man. He could face a $1,000 fine, up to six months in jail, or both.

    So far, the state order has not been widely enforced by police agencies, but this isn't the first time this week a Southern California man has faced consequences for being in the ocean.

    According to the Los Angeles Times, a surfer in Manhattan Beach was fined $1,000 last weekend after similarly ignoring repeated orders to exit the ocean.

    Q: What disease (and possible death) were the police in the above article most likely preventing by arresting the surfer?
    A: Skin cancer.

    Did you know
    Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States and worldwide.
    • 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer by the age of 70.
    • More than 2 people die of skin cancer in the U.S. every hour.
    • Having 5 or more sunburns doubles your risk for melanoma.

    https://www.skincancer.org/skin-canc...-cancer-facts/

    So the police were doing the surfer a favor!

    Q: Does this mean that surfers and other people who spend time in the sun should be arrested?
    A: Absolutely. Whenever you see someone outside between the hours of 8am to 4pm, you should call the police and have him or her arrested and thrown in jail. That's the only legitimate solution to the problem.

    The world has had enough of this skin cancer nonsense. It's time to put a stop to it.

    I realize your second post was meant as sarcasm...

    However IMO both posts show we are getting dangerously close to an Orwellian society...
    And I can guarantee everyone (especially the liberals)...

    How could that ever hold up court? Any grocery or hardware store is packed with people; no one around where he was. Those cops should be charged with something.
    I do a triple evac with nitro to remove non condensables.

    Musta been breaking the new law about being on a beach or in the water near a beach.

    Here's an alternate solution to getting arrested for sunbathing: the Smart UV Camera. It shows where your skin is being damaged and where your sun block is effective.
    .
    The SmartUV is a connectable UV camera for smartphones that captures the world in UV light and displays it as a video or picture on your phone screen via the SmartUV App. UV light doesn’t have color as it sits outside the visible light spectrum, which explains why the images are in black and white. White shows where UV light is reflected, and black shows where it is absorbed or blocked.

    It will probably hold up in a court with a progressive judge who is advancing the agenda of the local and state govt...

    From where I sit... I am reminded this is CA... where fruits and nuts run the govt...

    Question BB...

    Years ago (decades ago)... I remember hearing N CA (beyond the madness of SanFran)...
    Is a different place... a bit more sane and balanced.

    Is this still true, or has the madness of the rest of the state crept up there???

    Just what we need... another environmental issue to wind up the fearful...

    Too many of us in our retirement years, have worked in the sun all our lives...
    And we are cancer FREE!



    Note: not doubting the science, rather questioning the validity of the danger...

    I have several relatives who had skin cancer. It is dangerous!

    Not only are some people naturally prone to it; some medications can increase the risk of skin cancer.
    (It pays to read the fine print that comes with the meds!)

    Spending more time in the sun over the years doesn't decrease your chances of getting skin cancer; it increases them.

    And the UV Camera is certainly a better solution than passage and enforcement of ridiculous laws or similar over-the-top forms of government intervention.

    I know folks that got it also...

    I do not know anyone who practiced healthy diet (organic, etc) and healthy lifestyle, who got it.

    One way to say it goes like this:

    The highest concentration of the Progressive Left in CA lives within 20 miles of the water. The further you get from the water, the more conservative it gets.

    Interestingly enough, they (not sure who they is) did a study last year and found (I think it was) the registered voters in this state is roughly 1/3 dims, 1/3 repugs, and 1/3 independent, decline to state, or other.

    That seems to be a nationwide phenomenon...most of the blue states are either east or west coast.

    If you look at the map carefully, with the exception of Texas...
    Where the $$$ is concentrated in larger cities... leans towards the left.

    Anyone want to address the why behind that???
