    San Francisco Says Enough Monkey Business: Tells Parking Spot App to Shut Down .........City Attorney Dennis Herrera served the startup a cease-and-desist letter,



    to repeat, the city of SF has no authority to tell company not in SF to stop its operation, .......the city would have to sue...in a federal court.

    the constitution creates federalism, and places restrictions on the federal government.

    it grants the federal government few powers...all other powers the states had before the Constitution .........they retain.

    You completely miss the point, and it sounds like you are repeating instructed words.

    If all article 1 is exclusive to congress, then why state it again:

    To exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten Miles square) as may, by Cession of particular States, and the Acceptance of Congress, become the Seat of the Government of the United States, and to exercise like Authority over all Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings;—And

    again the states have no powers granted by the Constitution....

    federalism is the separation of powers, which is what the constitution creates...

    it separates powers between the federal government and the states, ...with federal powers listed in the Constitution, and all other powers not in the Constitution are state powers.

    clause 17 which states, that d.c will be seat of power for the federal government, and only they have power there.......

    the second part of the clause [ according to the founders at the convention state, that the federal government [congress] has no federal authority on state property]..........however the USSC does not see it that way.

    You know, if they went to court, especially in SF, they would rule that SF can stop them from doing business in the city. They are making electronic transactions with people in the city, so I don't think there is any way for them to claim that they don't transact business within SF.

    Whether of not the city has the right to stop them is another question.

    Pay for a parking spot that isn't owned by the person selling it to them.

    One of these companies was paying people by the hour to hold spots.
    I may be wrong.

    They are selling their time. Did I say that already? Not the spot. That was my opinion. I should have made that clear.

    This case makes a pretty nice argument for me on why public property should not exist.

    But that argument is false. If I'm selling my time and not the spot then at best all I'm doing is selling my property, and not your parking spot.
