Electricity Cost: CA vs U.S. — and TX

This month my home SDG&E electricity bill added a third price category — a “high usage charge.” See below.

Actually I have no problem with such tiered pricing, but the high cost for EACH tier is breathtaking when compared with most other states. Compare my SDG&E (and California) rates with the latest (November, 2017) numbers from the U.S. Energy Administration (EIA) provided below.


Tier 1 — 0-374 kWh Tier 2 — 375-1152 kWh Tier 3 — 1153 and up 23 cents 40 cents 47 cents(!)

My total usage (with a solar array): 396 kWh


Here are the EIA November, 2017 numbers, with comparisons of CA with the nation — and with Texas. Note that my… Read More

Oust California Teacher and Councilman Who Called Military ‘Dumbsh*ts’

I’m just a Navy mom of a United States Naval Academy graduatewho is currently a Navy special ops officer, and has had two long Middle East deployments. I wasn’t going to weigh in on the liberal California councilman and public school teacher who told his students “military Are ‘dumbsh*ts” and “lowest of our low.” That is, until I read that the school district officials of Gregory Salcido, El Rancho High School history teacher and a current member of thePico Rivera City Council, were covering for him, even after he said when speaking about our military, “They’re the frickin’ lowest of our low,” in one of three videos that surfaced last week.

The Real State of the State: Gov. Jerry Brown leaving California bankrupt and homeless

Gov. Jerry Brown’s State of the State address yesterday, his last of 16, was rather melancholy and underwhelming. Some aspects of the state seem in great shape, such as low unemployment.

But when I look around the state I see something I have never seen before since my family immigrated here from Holland in 1960: a vast homeless population for which there seems no solution. Even the deep recessions of 1974, 1980-81 and 2008-9 never produced that.

Brown has to bear much of the blame, beginning when… Read More

Sh*thole California Part lll: Democrat Mafia To Extort Profits From CA Businesses

California’s Democrats are on an accelerated path of destruction of the once Golden State. In Parts l and ll of my series on how California’s leftist Democrats have turned the Golden State into a sh*thole, I explain how California’s ruling party is doubling down on business-destroying policies, energy destroying policies, education destroying policies, and policies destroying California’s abundant natural resources. The new law claiming sanctuary state status is blatantly unconstitutional, as is “legalizing” marijuana.

But Wait!!! There’s More!!!

Democrats have… Read More

What Democrats Won’t Tell You About the GOP Tax Cut

In an effort to keep up with their self-described “resistance” movement, California Democrats are engaged in a full-fledged attack against recently enacted federal tax reform legislation that provides tax cuts for most Americans and Californians.

Ironically, these same Democrats who claim to be focused on the poor and needy are engaged in nonstop howling over two provisions of the new tax law:

A cap of $750,000 on mortgage interest deductions, and A $10,000 limit on the deductibility of state and local taxes (SALT).

In other words, they’re complaining the new tax law doesn’t do even more to help the wealthy – who also happen to be their constituents. In Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s San Francisco district, the average home is worth a million bucks. In Rep. Ted Lieu’s West Los Angeles district – the second wealthiest in the nation – home prices are even higher.

Sure, if you can afford to live in an affluent area of the state such as the Bay Area, where the median home price has skyrocketed above $900,000, there’s a possibility you could be left with a higher tax bill.

However, if you live in poorer areas of the… Read More

Solving the Oroville Spillway Mystery

By Lloyd Billingsley and Katy Grimes

The Oroville Spillway mystery only deepened with the recent forensic report; who was the unqualified designer the state hired? Or did they?

Last February, spillway failures sparked fears that Oroville Dam would collapse, forcing the evacuation of 180,000 people. Evacuees, local residents and taxpayers statewide wondered who and what might be responsible for this failure. Some answers are now emerging, despite an ongoing state cover-up.

In the wake of the spillway failure, politicians and water bureaucrats alike began to dam up information on safety issues, blocking access to records about the dam’s design… Read More

The Ludicrous March of the Ugly Pink-Hatters

The latest women’s march is more proof that these leftists – and they all are leftists – are empty-headed imbeciles. Billed as demonstrations in support of “female empowerment,” this march of ugly, angry leftists doesn’t understand that the rest of us are laughing at them. They are having an annual emotional flare-up, a temper tantrum, but they can’t articulate what they are upset about.

“People are realizing we can’t just march, we have to vote,” said Regina Bateson, a leftist candidate for Congress running against Republican Rep. Tom McClintock, the Sacramento Bee reported. Does Ms. Bateson and her fellow marchers not know that the 19th amendment, which granted women the right to vote, was passed by Congress June 4, 1919, and ratified on August 18, 1920?

If so many women are not voting, how serious can they be?

And really, do they go home happier after these feverish group cry-ins? What do… Read More
