The government of Cedar Falls, Iowa, has actually passed an ordinance that requires owners of commercial property — this includes not just businesses but also apartments and some rental houses — to provide the government with keys to their properties. I kid you not. Notice how, in the city council meeting captured in this video, the statist legislators behave as if the citizens should have to prove why this anomalous, perhaps unprecedented law should be shelved. They conduct themselves with an air of moral superiority, as if they're doing the citizenry a favor and the latter's complaints are an imposition. In reality, these statists should be on the hot seat trying to justify insane legislation that never should have been contemplated in the first place.
I'll tell you, it sometimes seems as if talking is a waste of time. The good townsfolk should just have brought their pitchforks and registered their four-pointed votes.
