The Sad State Of California – From The “Would You Make Up Your Mind” Dept.

Share Button

Once upon a time, in the late 1970’s, environmentalists, especially those in California, in order to save the forests from logging, got us to stop using paper bags in favor of plastic ones at the grocery store. How times have changed. Now they’re pushing legislation through that would ban plastic bags in favor of… Yep, […]

Parents go to jail if their kids miss too much school.   Can we please vote these people out of office….  Forever.

The Sad State Of California – California Clueless

Share Button

Our ruling class: The Democrats who control the Legislature have fired their opening salvo against Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s spending blueprint, which proposed eliminating California’s welfare program and cutting deeply into other state services, by proposing that the state rely instead on billions of dollars in new taxes to balance the budget.

Common Sense vs The Feds

File this under “Stuff I Should Have Blogged About, But Have Been Too Busy”. California has been locked in some sort of water war for about as long as it’s been a state I think. This last week delivered some great news concerning water delivery to the west side farmers: A judge in Fresno slammed […]

The Sad State Of California – Why We Are Where We Are.

Why? It’s because of the poor quality and caliber of the politicians that run the state. Exhibit A: The speaker of the State Assembly, John Perez. He was appointed the assembly leader, even though he had been in office for only a year. His lack of experience showed in spades this last week, as documented […]

Here is another wonderful reason to live in California, via an e-mail from a friend. This was approved back in Feb of 2000, but I guess it never got much publicity: Did you know that CA has a program where cops can set up a “Smog Check Point”. It looks like a sobriety check point, […]

Obama’s Version Of “Drill Baby Drill” = “Pull A Fast One, Baby, Pull A Fast One”.

The news this morning seemed surprising, Obama approves of plan to increase drilling. Wow! That’s refreshing. “The only way this transition will succeed is if it strengthens our economy in the short term and the long run,” the president said. “To fail to recognize this reality would be a mistake.” For more than 20 years, […]

Proposed 12775% Tax Increase

Share Button

Yes, you read that right… 12775%. A  California initiative  proposing a 12775% hike in alcohol tax. These people just don’t get it, do they.  Good luck getting the signatures for that…. Although, come to think of it, this IS California; they will probably get enough to make it on the ballot.

Democrats, Feinstein, Screw The West Valley Again… And The Media Screws Up Again!

Share Button

This really pisses me off, yet, why am I not surprised. A few weeks ago California Senator Dianne Feinstein had promised to place a rider in the jobs bill that would guarantee a 40 % allotment of water deliveries to the San Joaquin valley farmers from the Sacramento Delta. I have since been keeping an […]
