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.

Unhappy Californians

May 19, 2018

The following paragraph are from four different publications, though they sound like they all copied lines from each other. Californians (8 out of 10) are disgruntled. Many have moved, many are considering a move, and many can’t afford to move. California has the highest rate of poverty in the states.

A Public Policy Institute of California survey shows Gov. Jerry Brown’s Proposition 30, which would temporarily increase the state sales tax and income taxes on those earning at least $250,000 a year, ahead, 52 percent to 40 percent.

Brown was elected with strong support from unions and has governed in a way
that usually puts their priorities first. The Democratic Party, which controls every statewide constitutional office and could soon have two-thirds control of both houses of the Legislature, is always doing the bidding of the unions. If this doesn’t change, it’s hard to envision an optimistic future here.

Even the San Francisco Chronicle, which opposed Prop. 32 in an editorial, grasps the heart of the problem: “There is no question that organized labor has a powerful grip on the state Capitol, and that works against the public’s interest on issues such as education reform, government efficiency and pension reform.”

Currently nine out of 10 residents … describe the state’s economy as being in bad times.” The data is a couple months old, but nothing suggests any drastic change since then.
Meanwhile, the latest polling for the two highest-profile November ballot initiatives brings good news for those who embrace the status quo. A Public Policy Institute of California survey shows Gov. Jerry Brown’s Proposition 30, which would temporarily increase the state sales tax and income taxes on those earning at least $250,000 a year, ahead, 52 percent to 40 percent.

Californians enter this campaign season in an unusually unhappy state. In the latest Public Policy Institute of California Statewide Survey, about 7 in 10 likely voters expect bad economic times, see the state and nation going in the wrong direction, and disapprove of the job that the president, Congress and the state Legislature are doing.

 

Voter frustration – about immigration and Iraq at the national level, and on health care and the budget at the state level – has taken a toll. Californians appear ready to express themselves at the ballot box. A record 9.1 million voted in the February presidential primary. Voter registration has increased and at last count was 16.1 million.

As the Field Poll revealed in July, “Californians have had an extremely gloomy view of the state’s economy since 2008 … . Currently nine out of ten residents … describe the state’s economy as being in bad times.” The data is a couple months old, but nothing suggests any drastic change since then.
Meanwhile, the latest polling for the two highest-profile ballot initiatives for November are good news for those who embrace the status quo. A new poll by the Public Policy Institute of California shows Gov. Jerry Brown’s tax-hiking Proposition 30, which would temporarily increase sales taxes and income taxes on those earning more than $250,000 a year, ahead 52 percent to 40 percent. By the way, how often have you met a tax hike that actually goes away?

Such bullshit flies every day in California while the middle class slips into poverty. Did you know moonbeam (governor brown) mentioned yesterday the California government has a “rainy-day fund of $9 billion dollars? Soon to be 16 billion!
So why are Californians still dealing with DMV rules coming up that will put many individual truck owners, and some companies out of business. So why is gas and diesel so high…the only “impovements” I see in roads in California are quick fixes that look like crap.
Most Californians I know are wonderful people and have a heart…but they do not want a sanctuary state. Citizens are legal. Why harbor people who have entered illegally, and get perks on top of it? If they are already breaking the law, WHY keep them safe and make it comfortable.
Other countries have found this does not work! If they break the law once, what is to stop them from doing it again? For those who have been here 20 years and are working – WHY haven’t they become citizens. This is the UNITED STATES of America, with American citizens! Does not matter the race or history of origin…but it does matter that they love this country enough to adopt our traditions and live by our Constitution.
The tide is turning for conservatives in California. I think it is because so many hard working citizens are sick of the tide of illegals coming in and getting everything free…and because we don’t have a clue who they are, really! Something has to give. I know, let’s take all the illegals and early release prisoners, and the homeless and put them on Pelosi’s or moonbeams property.
They are rich, they have plenty of land and money to share. Just think they could actually see what its all about.

I am not heartless.  I have a big heart, but there is a time you have to stand up and be a warrior for what you believe and what you know to be true.  I don’t want anyone to suffer…..and that includes all the hard-working, legal citizens, who need a bit of consideration too.
