California our First Communist State

May 3, 2020

Good job governor.  Required to stay off beaches, business’ closed, etc.  Citizens being ticketed, and when protesting at the capital, armed guards with batons – ready to “control” those who are outraged about it all.  Things have gone too far.  Is this still America?

I truly believe the hardest hit in California are indigents, illegals, and those who live in poverty.  I think that is probably what is happening in New York too.

Newsom allocated $50 million to BUY or provide rooms for ninety days for the largest homeless population of any state-108,000 people.  Oh, he is also providing trailers.

He also is using 100 million more for grants to provide support services.

Let’s think about it:  You can come to California and stay if you entered illegally, or are an indigent.  California provides free phone and service to everyone like this.  Redding provides tents, bikes, clothing and such.  Now free food and motels and a stipend monthly.

I wonder if he leased or bought the motel 6 chain (one of many provided).  Curiously I also wonder what will happen when the state “reopens” (if ever)….will all these folks just be told “Okay, times up.  Leave. ”

Perhaps not.  Newsom is talking about buying hotels so long-term housing will be provides.  Hmmmm….I think that includes food, medical services, cleaning services, and of course, security services. What do I know, I am a peasant with a hard-working husband who exchanges his life for what these folks will be given for fee.  After all Newsom says these people are California”s most vulnerable citizens.

I know in California we are experiencing “early releases” from jails.  “You’re done.  We don’t want you to get sick.  Here is $200.00.  Bye bye.

I may have mentioned, one non-violent offender was released, and 24 hours later my friend had to shoot and kill him because he was coming into her home.  Police said she did the right thing.

California is still on a “STAY AT HOME order. I guess we are “lucky” we are ALLOWED to go out at all.  I tried to get an accurate count on corona virus deaths – I mean the actual count, not these counts that are including deaths really not accurate, but “clumped together” with other deaths – no luck.

Just a note to give you CDC numbers on the flu virus this year thus far this year: between 39 million and 56 million flu illnesses, minimum 410,000 hospitalizations, and as many as 62 thousand deaths from flu. 169 of those were children.

Flu hits children – Know the symptoms

January 15, 2015

Children and the Flu: This year it is serious. At least twenty-one children are dead from the flu. It hasn’t even hit all the states yet. Part of the reason is carelesness. Do not forget to make children wash their hands often. Not a quick wash, but a thorough wash.

Remind them to bend their elbows and cough in that “cove” if they cough. This year the flu is hardest on the children three and under (and older senior citizens).

If your child has a cough, a temperature, is achy or they have a headache – pay attention. Keep them home and take care of them. Even preschool can be the setting for LOTS of flu transiting from one child to another. .

It may be a bit inconvenient to keep the child home, but think of this – is it worth loosing them because of the inconvenience?

Please be considerate of others and also lessen the illness of your own children by really paying attention and taking care of them. Do not misunderstand. I have three children and I know it is a tireless job and no handbook big enough to cover each child and all that can happen.

Accolades to parents as it is sometimes a thankless job that takes you to the brink of insanity. But the children are our gifts, you will make it through, and then some day just when you least expect it, one of your children will tell you they love you and you are a good parent. Your heart will be full.

God bless you and all the children. Make today child friendly and tell them how proud you are of them and give them a big hug “just because.” We need to share this information with others. Pass the word and prayers!
