California Political Machine

November 29, 2016

Councilman Ash Kalra, who terms out of the D2 seat next month, will also get a head start in his new role representing the 27th Assembly District. Kalra, who will succeed Assemblywoman Nora Campos, resigns from the council this week and will get sworn into the state Legislature next week.

This, my friends, is what is known as a political machine. Voters pass term limit laws designed to end career politicians. But the machine paves the way for one to jump to the next level of political office, thus maintaining the party control.

Democrats have been running California since the 70s. It should also be noted that since then we’ve seen housing prices skyrocket, wildlife are more protected than people, infrastructure such as roads and dams are neglected, and we have a special blend of gasoline that becomes even more scarce when inevitable shortages arise.

Thank you Democrats for giving California that unique reputation among the land. We’re so special we have a standing reservation on the little yellow buses.

California–Leadership Fail

Found this on Drudge Report… I’ve lived in San Jose and worked in Palo Alto for 35 years, and traffic in the Bay Area is the worst I’ve ever seen. When the dot com bubble was at its peak, even then it was not as bad as now.

But it’s not just traffic. Quality of life in California is reaching a precipitous point – housing prices are outrageous, we have no water thanks to environmental policies that discourage dams, we pay extra for special gasoline that becomes even more scarce during shortages, and now traffic is a nightmare.

Thank you, state planners. You’ve opened the borders, adding millions more to the population, while bowing to special interests that choose to enhance the lifestyle of animals as opposed to citizens.

It would be nice to add more lanes to those freeways, but the argument has always been that that only encourages more drivers. But that logic fails when you consider the number of immigrant drivers coming across an open border. Were they expecting newcomers to pledge a loyalty to pedestrianism?

Sorry to be such a Republican downer, but Democrat policies that have flourished in this state for the past 50 years are now coming home to roost. And it’s only going to get worse…

Wait–What?!!

So I was reading about the FBI investigation of Hillary’s email server, and documents have been turned over to congress for review… and then I caught this lower into the article: “(congressman) Chaffetz has not read the new documents, which include classified records that must be read in a security facility.”

Yeah, so Hillary trading unsecured email back and forth as SoS is okay, but in order to review that we need to go to a secure facility.

The woman is an irresponsible criminal.

Here’s why this won’t sway voters who support Trump. This is a video over 10 years old that has obviously been revealed to embarrass and shame him. It won’t work because there have been so many attempts to selectively stir up fake outrage depending on who the target is – and guess what… only Republicans have a target on their backs. So people instantly recognize this for what it is – a sleazy attempt to sway voters with little substance behind it. Yeah, Trump said something he shouldn’t have – big deal. That’s what he does, and if you didn’t know that about him by now you haven’t been paying attention.

The other reason it won’t work is Hillary has Bill Clinton. His chasing of women is legendary, going far beyond the meaning of consenting adults. Why he hasn’t been given the Cosby treatment is beyond me, except it’s obvious that “special people” get “special treatment”. Same with the FBI investigation. If anyone other than a Clinton had done these things there would be howls of outrage followed by trials and imprisonment.

Thank goodness Donald Trump has the balls to stare this one down too.

Maybe if you had the foresight to get bi-lateral support, instead of ramming it thru using arcane procedures, then maybe you might have a shot at fixing the problems.
