cool law

Postby sloughslut » Sun Aug 26, 2012 12:09 pm

I saw this on ikite


California State Constitution, Article 10, Section 4 - Forbids individual, joint and corporate landowners from obstructing free navigation. It provides that “the Legislature shall enact such law as will give the most liberal construction to this provision, so that access to the navigable waters of this State shall be always attainable for the people thereof.” It also forbids landowners “to exclude the right of way to [navigable] water whenever it is required for any public purpose.”
Riding used and closeout kites and boards from e-bay,craigslist,ikitesurf, and local surf shops.

English law concerning access roads and waterways known as the Queens Highway forbids ownership of waterways to protect free access for commercial purpose. (dates back like 500 years)

and what exactly does that mean? Does that make it less a law or something? Sorry I still don't quite understand the federal vs state thing...

if it is a national park it is governed under the rules for national parks not California parks. A lot of our waterways are national park lands like GG national recreation area and Don Edwards National wildlife refuge in the s.bay.

hm, I see, so if your water access way happens to be on national park that law does not apply....

yep. Then federal law kicks in.
Which is weird. Being from France I still can't understand how you guys manage playing with both those rules.
Like you can smoke weed in california as long as you have a card...
Super weird.
Even weirder: you can't eat foie gras in california anymore, BUT there is a restaurant in the presidio. Presidio = national park = federal law = you can get served foie gras there.

NIGHTMARE. :shock:

What 's the name of the restaurant? I lived in france for many years where I learned how to appreciate foie gras, so I have been crying over the new law.

there's always someone willing to bend the rules in their favor- JJ))
(thats why we have so many cops)

But- they can't really regulate Moral value, thats up to the population.
