California Outlaws Flat Sheets

Being a totalitarian ideology, nanny state liberalism aims to control every conceivable aspect of your life — right down to the sheets on your bed:

When California’s elected officials come back from their month-long recess they face a mountain of proposed legislation (almost 900 bills are lined up and waiting), including a new law (SB432) that would require hotels to eliminate flat sheets. Not having fitted sheets on hotel beds would now be a crime in California. This is not a joke…

California, the state trying to deal with a massive $26 BILLION dollar debt, is considering a law that some hospitality industry experts claim would add an estimated $15 to $30 million dollars in costs to an already hurting hotel industry. The low-end estimate of fifteen million is the projected cost to purchase new fitted sheets for the 550,000 hotel beds in the state.

The hospitality industry points out that the added expense will put jobs at risk, an argument highly unlikely to sway Democrats, who do everything in their power to keep unemployment high, thereby increasing our dependence on their handouts.

The fitted-sheet bill is the brainchild of State Senator Kevin De Leon (a Democrat from Los Angeles), whose mother suffered back pains while working as a hotel maid. Kevin has been quoted as saying this was “an issue close to my heart.”

In a tyrannical society, any bureaucrat with a pet issue can impose his will on the rest of us.

The good news for those who don’t like fitted sheets is that some petty tyrant whose mother was traumatized by trying to fold them neatly will ban those too. Then we will have sheet equality.
