Look closely at the “homeless problem”, if you dare. The encampments are nothing more than piles of trash, litter and excrement. Why hasn’t public health dealt decisively with what is a horrid blight on our community as well as a health hazard?Congressman Garamendi was on Tucker Carlson talking about government shutdown, DACA and chain-immigration. Perhaps someday we’ll discover what his solutions are except spend more of our money.A rat boarded an Alaska Airlines jet at Oakland Airport. Given the deplorable sanitary conditions of Oakland’s homeless encampments on city streets, it is only surprising that the rat took this long to invade the planes.California is now officially a sanctuary state. Moonbeam is now “President” of his own country. What can we expect? More criminals roaming our neighborhoods. More unskilled, undocumented, and unchecked people bringing diseases into California. More taxes to pay for benefits paid to more folks. Doesn’t this picture just make you want to jump for joy at Moonbeam’s ideas?James Comey? He tweets that he wants ethics and truth. Then why is the FBI leadership taking the fifth and avoiding subpoenas?From an anonymous source: If swimming is so good for your figure, explain the whale.It is time for the truth. The Deep State needs to be purged for what they have done to the country and for what they are trying to do. Of course they are hiding behind “resistance” and the Republicans are too cowardly to solve the problem.The House Intelligence Committee Chairman said last week that the FBI is in Iraq. Why? Isn’t the FBI supposed to deal with internal matters? Puerto Rico is taking forever to recover from the hurricane. The current governor of the island is President of the Progressive Party. Have progressives ever done anything to help the citizens they govern? Woodrow Wilson, FDR, Lyndon Johnson, Obama all were progressives. The War on Poverty, the New Deal, etc. have all created more and more dependence on big government.Palm Springs wants to cut down “racist” trees next to the Tahquitz Golf Club. Apparently they were planted to protect houses from errant golf balls. But now it is claimed they were planted to block a Black neighborhood from seeing the golf course. Is this still a Black neighborhood? Does Palm Springs have racial covenants? Consider that Palm Springs is a checkerboard of tribal lands. Is the neighborhood in question tribal? Is the golf course tribal? And where are the tree huggers?According to Federal statistics, some 95% of non-citizens in Federal prisons are illegally in the country. We house, feed, provide medical care, clothing and free legal assistance. Unacceptable.The United Nations General Assembly voted to condemn the US position on Israel’s capital. So what. The UN has been anti-US for decades. Even during the Korean conflict, which was supposedly a UN operation, the dirty work was done by the US as only a piddling number of troops, equipment and dollars came from UN members. Invite the UN to leave New York.Another interesting statistic about the UN. More than 80% of UN Resolutions criticizing countries were against Israel. Talk about anti-Semitism.Moonbeam pardons an illegal alien convicted of animal cruelty. Where is PETA? The best we can say about Mueller is that he and his merry band of leftists are having a high old time on our dime.According to experts, those who are in charge of dams and flood control, dredging the rivers will cause more harm than good. Dredging can be done free of cost to taxpayers, reclaim the rivers’ gavel beds for spawning salmon and other good things. If the levees can handle the process, then the “experts” have screwed up the levee building.
· Two “professors” living on our tax dollars at San Diego State University claim that farmers’ markets in urban areas are weed-like “white spaces” responsible for oppression. “Farmers’ markets are often white spaces where the food consumption habits of white people are normalized,” the SDSU professors write. They are geology professors who most likely are writing about an area of expertise which eludes them.
· Remember Al Gore, the climate scientist? Nine years ago he predicted in 2008 the North Polar Ice Cap would be completely ice free in five years. And then he had the gall to buy a mansion in Montecito, California, just steps from the ocean, while all along claiming the ocean would cover cities two miles inland. And people still believe this pied-piper?
if you insist on watching the NFL, perhaps you are enjoying the dumbest play imaginable – the kickoff. The percentage of those plays, which are not a “play” must be astronomical. How about a run back once in a while? Kick off from the twenty or make the receiver come out of the end zone.Dinesh D’Souza in his book “America” drives home some salient points about history and the warped teaching now being approved by our schools. To quote from the book: “In that literature (anti colonial) we read innumerable claims to the effect that the Europeans stole rubber from Malaya, and cocoa from West Africa and tea from India.” But the real truth is “...before British rule, there were no rubber trees in Malaya, nor cocoa trees in west Africa, nor tea in India. The British brought the rubber tree to Malaya from South America. From China they brought tea to India. They taught the Africans to grow cocoa. Rather than “stealing” native resources, the British “deserve credit for introducing profitable crops that benefited the native economies.” Here’s one more stupid law gone into effect in 2018 in California. Private employers can’t ask applicants about their salary history. Private employers — yes. When is it the government’s business how an employer and an applicant work out a job benefit?
· A University of Georgia professor has decided to allow students to select their own grades if they “feel unduly stressed” by their actual grade. Why? Because “emotional reactions to stressful situations can have profound consequences for all involved.” Anyone think this professor should be teaching?
Howard Armstrong, while at Columbia University, said ‘It ain’t ignorance that causes all the trouble in the world. It is the things that people know that ain’t so.” Seems like a perfect retort to climate change.California has a Bureau of Cannabis Control. Another bunch of useless bureaucrats sucking away at our tax dollars.
