Some years back, during the George W. Bush administration, I remember Dennis Prager explaining the toddler-like hysterics of the left: “If you want to understand the Left, the best place to start is with an understanding of hysteria. Leading leftists either use hysteria as a political tactic or are actually hysterics.”
Flash forward a dozen years to 2018 and it appears that the hysterical left is even more unhinged — think of a hitting, kicking, biting, scratching toddler in a tantrum.
Kids have temper tantrums because the parts of their brain that allows them to think logically isn’t developed yet.Parenting expertsrecommend appealing to your toddler’s emotions as you try to stop the tantrum. Instead of asking logical questions like, “Why are you crying,” and “Use your words and… Read More
Last weekend as my husband and I were enjoying vin rouge and fromage at one of our favorite Delta wineries in Clarksburg, CA, we discussed Gov. Jerry Brown’s proposed Delta Tunnels project, and how it would destroy the historical, rich agricultural region. Some of our favorite wineries, and all of the Delta agriculture could end up under water and/or the land rendered useless if Gov. Jerry Brown’s unnecessary Delta Tunnels project is actually built.
The tunnels project proponents claim it is needed to deliver significantly more, better quality water to Southern California cities and Central Valley farms, and deliver water more reliably – at an original cost estimate of more than $26 billion. When it became evident that… Read More
“THE MARXIANS LOVE OF DEMOCRATIC INSTITUTIONS WAS A STRATAGEM ONLY, A PIOUS FRAUD FOR THE DECEPTION OF THE MASSES. WITHIN A SOCIALIST COMMUNITYTHERE IS NO ROOM LEFT FOR FREEDOM.”
― LUDWIG VON MISES
California Gov. Jerry Brown and the Democrat-supermajority State Legislature hold the state Supreme Court’s purse strings. Evidence of this can be found in the MondayCalifornia Supreme Court 7-0 decisionin the Gerawan Farming case.
Jerry Brown says the world needs ‘brain washing’ on climate change. Sounding indeed brainwashed, Brown said, “The problem … is us. It’s our whole way of life. It’s our comfort … It’s the greed. It’s the indulgence. It’s the pattern. And it’s the inertia.”
I hate to be a party pooper but the totalitarian trio of Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot also said the world needed… Read More
Free speech is under assault in America. And in California, free speech is being bushwhacked. People are attacked just for having patriotic bumper stickers on their cars. Trump supporters who attend rallies are threatened, assaulted, beat up, and in a weekend attack in Santa Monica, a 28-year old man was knifed nine times! The only people being attacked are Trump supporters. The media lie “both sides do it” is repugnant; both sides are not violent.
The Navy Jack flag flying from my house was set on fire shortly before the November 8th presidential election. We fly it at the behest of our son, a Naval officer, who was deployed to the Middle East at the time. It’s an historical flag. But the dunderheads who… Read More
There is great evil afoot in this country. The left is imploding before our very eyes. But it is a rot from within, and it is self-imposed. The Democrat Party has no substantive platform any longer other than obstruction, “resist,” foul-mouthed vulgarity, violence, anger, and excessive whining.
This rot is manifesting itself in some very public displays:
Campus snowflakes are working overtime at colleges and universities across the country to shut down speech. They are rioting, destroying property, and openly fighting professors who’s’ curriculum offends their sense of social justice. If that isn’t enough scurrilous behavior, these pathetic snowflakes are now demanding racially segregated graduation ceremonies, dormitories, and white students and professors are told to leave campuses for a “day without whites.” I remember when desegregation was worth marching… Read More
President Donald Trump announced last evening an investigation into election and voter fraud is coming. “I will be asking for a major investigation into VOTER FRAUD, including those registered to vote in two states, those who are illegal and even those registered to vote who are dead (and many for a long time). Depending on results, we will strengthen up voting procedures!” Trump tweeted.
This is music to the ears of many California voters – especially those whose… Read More
