The spear of change has been turned on the people of this state, of which, unfortunately, I am still one. A wave of progressive social policies has been forced upon those people in the middle class who still work. The effort that these workers show leads to nothing but high state taxes higher gas taxes, higher costs of living and housing due to restrictive land-use regulations.
Leading the nation in the number of homeless in our cities, and illegals throughout our State have reached epidemic proportions. A drive through Los Angeles, San Francisco, or any other major city in California will show countless homeless, immigrants and illegal aliens living on the street, making entire sections of the city uninhabitable. Business is leaving in droves, no longer willing to pay high taxes and adhere to devastating business regulations.
California is willing to follow progressive socialist business regulations to send as much money to the State and close out the opportunity for business growth. California ranks 48th in the Tax Foundations 2018 State Business Tax Climate Index. After the businesses, citizens, and middle class were destroyed our Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown forced through Proposition 30 increasing sales and income taxes. By increasing these tax rates and burdening the people in this state both personally and commercially, California’s economic growth has been stagnant if not falling. This has lead California to hold the dubious distinction of being the Poverty Capital of the United States.

By any reasonable, responsible standard, California is off of the rails.
The California elite have forgotten that America is a government of the PEOPLE (citizens) and for the PEOPLE.
Our absurd pot loving dope pushing Governor Jerry Brown, aka the Moonbeam, working hand in hand with a primarily Democratic majority in the State Senate and State Assembly who are principally anti-American Communists, Racists, Socialists, Progressives, and Globalists are creating a frighteningly tyrannical system of governance that is anti-citizen.
Brown is an (expletive) who will rightfully soon see some real havoc thundering his way because of his criminal nature.
Without pity, Brown has imposed terrible burdens on the good citizens of California with the highest gasoline prices in the nation which hinder consumers from making purchases that ought to strengthen the economy. To exacerbate the gasoline prices, this gang of thieves now want to impose a penny per mile tax on all drivers which will cost businesses and commuters enormously, and further throttle business and economic productivity and progress. Naturally, these New World Order, Agenda 21/2030 gang want people to stop commuting and live in crowded, dingy people-towers and ride non-existing trains to nowhere. This is a brutally abusive form of tyranny guaranteed to denigrate the quality of life for millions of Californians.
Joke signs were posted on California highways as The Golden State became a sanctuary state in the new year.
Posted under the ‘Welcome to California’ highway signs, they read: ‘OFFICIAL SANCTUARY STATE, Felons, Illegals and MS13 Welcome! Democrats Need The Votes!’ along with the seal of California and the Democratic Donkey symbol.
It is unclear who is responsible but multiple signs were posted greeting motorists as they enter from Arizona and Nevada on Highway 95.
California officially became a ‘sanctuary state’ on Monday after the law Democratic Governor Jerry Brown signed in October took effect.
Ah, California. Is there nothing you can’t make more ideological with every passing week? In the Golden State’s latest effort to prove that they’re really not interested in being part of the rest of the nation, California’s state government – which viciously opposes President Trump’s travel ban – has expanded their own travel ban. Of course, it only applies to state funded travel, and rather than restricting traffic with terrorist hot spots, it blocks airline tickets to states which it deems insufficiently “woke.” In this case, that would be Texas, Alabama, Kentucky and South Dakota.

(Washington DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that it filed a records request with the California Legislature Joint Rules Committee seeking to examine legislative records regarding the state’s employment of former Obama U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder Jr.:
All contracts between the California Legislature and former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder Jr. or Covington and Burling.
All communications between the California Legislature and former U. S. Attorney General Eric Holder Jr. or Covington and Burling about the Legislature’s retention of Holder and/or Covington and Burling.
On January 4, 2017, California legislative leaders announced that they have hired Holder to assist them in anticipated federal challenges to several state policies such as climate change and immigration.
In a statement, Kevin de Leon, California Senate President Pro Tempore said, “With the upcoming change in administrations, we expect that there will be extraordinary challenges for California in the uncertain times ahead.” The California Attorney General, who represents the State’s interest in court, already has a budget of $190 million.
California is working hard to facilitate illegal immigration while other states are looking at immigration enforcement. They’re giving away freebies, including healthcare.
California is a one-party government, like the old Soviet Union, and there’s little in the way of effective opposition. They like to spread around other people’s money especially to poor illegal aliens.
Californians already offer health services free or at low cost to the uninsured, low-income residents who don’t get it under Obamacare.
Several counties offer the same healthcare to illegal aliens.
Students at the University of California, Irvine have voted to make their school a more “culturally inclusive” place by banning the American flag.
The Associated Students of University of California (ASUCI) passed a resolution March 3 that would remove the Stars & Stripes along with every other flag from the lobby of a complex housing the offices of the student government.
“Designing a culturally inclusive space aims to remove barriers that create undue effort and separation by planning and designing spaces that enable everyone to participate equally and confidentially,” read the resolution authored by Matthew Guevara.
The resolution passed 6-4. Two people abstained. Let me break down the vote for you — six unAmerican students, four patriots and two individuals who could have a career in House Republican leadership.
Guevara’s resolution, which was in dire need of an edit, rambled on about “paradigms of conformity” and “homogenized standards” and blah, blah, blah.
It sounds like Mr. Guevara could have a future career in community organizing or the Democratic party.
“The American flag has been flown in instances of colonialism and imperialism,” he bemoaned. “Flags not only serve as symbols of patriotism or weapons for nationalism, but also construct cultural mythologies and narratives that in turn charge nationalistic sentiments.”
I know, folks. I know it’s California. But this is beyond bizarre even for the yoga and granola crowd.
