Welcome to California

Electric cars, preventable forest fires, endless taxes, unlimited state bureaucracy and now Harvey Weinstein.  Welcome to California.

Those of us that do NOT live in Mendocino, the Bay Area, the San Joaquin valley floor or Los Angeles want the Hell out of California.  The rest of us, (you know those of us that provide the water, power, food and raw materials for the rest of the State) are sick and tired of being told what to do by Sacramento and L.A.. 
Harvey Weinstein isn’t really our problem.  He isn’t really Sacramento’s problem.  He is Hollywood’s problem and a diversion from the misery we face in our everyday lives.   He is the schadenfreude we need to get back at the a**holes that we begrudge. 

We thought that the upcoming surtax on our gas and diesel would be the breaking point, but when the dems vote in a block against logic and reason, what do we do?  Oh yeah, we send money to the Republican California Committee to blow on useless campaign commercials for the upcoming election.  Talk about an exercise in futility. 
No, California hasn’t found the bottom yet.  It will take a monumental screw-up by the Dems to wake up the chattering masses. 

And it seems that our trillion dollar debt isn’t getting it done.

Do the Crime Do no Time

Anybody else notice recently that the FBI has been busy arresting bureaucrats caught accepting bribes in return for gifts?  You know those lowlifes that shuttled classified documents to Chinese and Russian officials in return for trips, jewelry, money and hookers.

Well, I’ve not seen the same treatment used against Hillary or Huma. 
In fact, while the FBI has been busy spending millions of dollars getting dozens of additional offenses against scofflaws at the State Dept., the Defense Dept. and the Justice Dept.  They already have Hillary and Huma lying dozens of times to Congress, on tape.  And since they always plead down the felonies to one or two, Hillary already has enough charges to get her 10 to 20 years in Federal lockup. 
Now I don’t want to go out on a limb here, but if Hillary escapes prosecution, we should all get the same treatment in the future.  

Do the crime, dodge the time.

Global Nagging

Wow, what can I say?  In the last few billion years, our planet has gone through many changes.  And yes, while many of these changes include Global Warming, none, if any of them, were caused by man.  Therefore, none of them can be changed by man.  

 Global Warming is a natural occurrence, be it volcanoes, algae, bovine emissions, termites or a score of other causes.  So man’s contribution is mostly to the bank accounts of Al Gore and the environmental community.

What has brought me to this scribe was yesterday’s failure of our ROKU to connect to our favorite programs.  We, had to instead, fall back to our regular satellite system. 

Beyond our hatred of ‘commercials’ we were forced to land on something that didn’t include any references to “safe spaces”, “trigger warnings” or the mother of all leftist memes,  Global Warming.  So, National Geographic it was. 

 After at least three consecutive programs there were at least six references to……… Global Warming. 

From ancient foot prints in Greenland muck, to buildup of algae in Louisiana lagoons, to the evaporation of the Mediterranean Sea, Global Warming seemed to be the reason of the day.   

Never once did the announcer confess that the Atlantic Ocean connects to the Mediterranean Sea.  Never once did any of the environmental elite mention that these environmental changes had happened tens, if not hundreds of times BEFORE man came on the scene.

Nevermind that the Himalayan Mountains and the Swiss Alps were once under the sea, the lack of a smog pump on my ’72 Chevy truck has doomed us to a climactic Armageddon.

Now I don’t want to go out on a limb here but if those of us who still live in L.A., but also complain about the air quality, or those that live in Beijing, China, and complain they can’t see across the street and are still living there, they deserve what they get.  I can see across my street just fine, but I don’t need Nat Geo sticking Global Warming in my face five or six times a night.

Time was that we watched television for entertainment or knowledge.  Now we watch it for political persuasion. 

Memo to L.A. and Beijing:  If you don’t like it there, move.  Leave the rest of us alone and stop using Nat Geo as a cudgel.
