Failed State California: Overtaxed, Overregulated, Overopinionated, and Underhanded

More is never enough for California politicians, as evidenced by our highest-in-the-nation taxes. The once-Golden State of opportunity and innovation ranks 48th in the Tax Foundation’s 2018StateBusiness Tax Climate Index. Again. Back in 2012I wrote aboutour lousy 48th ranking, and that was before Gov. Jerry Brown’s Proposition 30 passed, which dramatically increased sales and income taxes. And it was before the California Legislature passed yet another massive gas/diesel tax on the state’s drivers, making California’s the highest gas taxes in the nation.

California Cities’ Shakedown of Oil Industry Wrought With Fraud

Environmentalists claim global warming can be mitigated, but only if humans are forced to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This pseudo-science is what California’s leftist politicians have adopted to control human activity, and the unelected bureaucrats at the California Air Resources Board based its cap-and-trade carbon auction program on.

Now, seven California municipalities – four cities and three counties – are suingExxon MobilCorp.and other major oil producers to force those companies to cover the costsand hold fossil-fuel… Read More

Pot is A Dangerous ‘Recreation’

Voters legalized pot several years ago in Colorado and Washington State. They were promised increased tax revenue increases and better-educated children for their vote. For the love of money and claims of liberty, disasters are now unfolding in both states.

Now California is embarking on likely the same disastrous path, if not worse, despite copious amounts of destructive evidence.

A Taxing Problem

California voters approvedProposition 64, the “California Marijuana Legalization Initiative,” in November of 2016. It legalized recreational marijuana for Californians aged 21 years or older. It also created two new excise taxes on marijuana:

A cultivation tax of $9.25 per ounce for flowers and $2.75 per ounce for leaves, with … Read More

Pardon Me, Governor Brown

Pardonne moi, Governor Jerry Brown, but California is a cesspool and you are giving absolution to criminals.

Brown’s smug ‘burn it down and leave’ attitude, together with all of the left, is based on the self-righteous belief that more than half of the country does not know what’s good for them – and liberals and leftists do. They hate us for not aspiring to their glamorous and important lives, and then feel compelled to tell us how to live.

Burn it Down and Leave

Because of Governor Jerry Brown’s ineptitude, incompetence and corruption, Californians are facing a dangerous and uncertain future. Because Jerry Brown would not address the issues a sincere governor must, his chosen distractions like climate change and criminal pardons are costing us dearly. On his way to United Nations climate talks in Bonn, Germany in November, Brown stopped by the Vatican to chat up like-minded climate change thought leaders, and said, “It… Read More

CA Media Colluding With Dems: Hypocrisy On Sex Harassment Cases

Are we witnessingthe collapse of journalism?

A recording surfaced in 2009 in which then-Assemblyman Mike Duvall (R-Yorba Linda) is heard bragging about extramarital escapades with two women on an open microphone in an Assembly Committee hearing.Duvall, married and a father, immediatelyresigned from hisposition.

Nowhere in the media was there an explanation about why the microphone was hot, because prior to Capitol… Read More

We All Get Screwed In Capitol Affairs

The same leftist culture that created rabid feminism is now condoning victim worship of all females who claim sexual harassment and assault – even before the facts are out. It’s apparent the left is confused, and really doesn’t stand for anything — except for their goal to completely destabilize and destroy traditional America.

Power and Corruption

Many years ago I remember being told by a veteran old-school police officer that there are no victims; we put ourselves in situations in which we can be victimized. In his world of crime and punishment, so few people he saw “victimized” were blameless – other than children, who are not to blame for what predatory adults do to them.

Inside, in the California State Capitol, where power and corruption go together like bacon and… Read More

Assembly Hearing To Expose and Reform CA’s Predatory Political Scene

Alleged sexual harasser Democrat Assemblyman Raul Bocanegra announced his resignation from the Legislature Monday. But does anyone really think anything will change inside the predatory state Capitol?

Last week I was critical of Bocanegra’s faux resignation, when he announced he would leave at the end of his term in December 2018. “‘Not seeking reelection is not a resignation,” I wrote.

Let me make one thing very clear: Raul Bocanegra will not suffer. He will not be jobless and on unemployment. He will not have to reinvent himself. He will not take a blue collar job. What will the Quid Pro Quo be? He has already been promised a soft landing, in a… Read More
