California has declared ELECTRONIC CIGARETTES A HEALTH HAZARD. This means that your tax dollars will now be spent by State Health Officials to “educate” you on the dangers of the Vape because you are too stupid to make the choice for yourself. Look, I hate smoking. I’ve made that clear. But within the context of your own closed loop atmosphere, it’s your choice. To my own personal point of mind, Vapers are just obnoxious smokers who want to flaunt that they aren’t smoking, they are “vaping” in places where smoking isn’t permitted. But the bigger issue is that if State Health Officials are really that concerned about the dangers of e-cigs, shouldn’t they be suing the baajeebees out of the E-Cig companies? Some have noted that the attempt by Senator Mark “I Know What’s Best For You” Leno REDEFINES WORDS TO BAN THEM. Read the rest of this entry
We keep being told that the California economy is back on track and roaring like a lion. But the people who keep telling us that are more interested in power than in truth. You read headlines recently proclaiming that the unemployment rate had “fallen” in the state and that this indicated that we are moving upwards. The problem is that the numbers are, of course, cherry picked and essentially meaningless. First off, in the entire state for the month of December, the number of jobs created was 700. That’s it, and it’s not a typo. Seven Hundred jobs. In December. The rate of unemployment falling has NOTHING to do with new jobs, it is about PEOPLE WHO HAVE DROPPED OUT of the workforce. One wonders why anybody would bother with College these days, with the debt incurred for the poor job market to be faced. The Pollyanish Unclothed Emperors who run the State have finally managed to convince people who are suffering a depression that everything is golden and they should just give them even more power. Mostly because the State’s people are too dumbed down to do the math. Read the rest of this entry
The Mainstream Media is having a journalistic Ape-Sh** fit over the SO-CALLED “DOOMSDAY CLOCK BEING MOVED TWO MINUTES CLOSER to midnight. for those of you unfamiliar with this Cold War relic, the Doomsday Clock was invented by a bunch of politically correct guilt driven Los Alamos Scientists to try and show how close the world is to atomic destruction by nuclear weapons. Through the years they make a big deal of the press conference when they announce that they are moving it “closer” to midnight, but almost never when they decide that they need to move it back. To show what a farce the thing is, the closest its ever been to “midnight” – nuclear devastation, is “11:58″ in 1953. That and the fact that this years move to 11:57 is, according to their press release, because:
“[U]nchecked climate change and a nuclear arms race resulting from modernization of huge arsenals pose extraordinary and undeniable threats to the continued existence of humanity. And world leaders have failed to act with the speed or on the scale required to protect citizens from potential catastrophe. These failures of leadership endanger every person on Earth.” – Kennette Benedict, Bulletin of Atomic Scientists Read the rest of this entry
The biggest problem with politicians, regardless of party or what they say, is that they do believe that once they are in office, they are above the law and better than you or I. When a politician gets a DUI, which, as you know I believe is attempted murder, they should resign. Period. No debate, no discussion, no further argument. I am even willing to wait until they plead it down to Wet & Reckless, but the point is, they have lost the public trust and they should have the personal conviction and courage to do the right thing. Instead, they choose to twist intentions, rules, laws and even their own words until they manage to portray themselves as the victim.
We’ve seen this here in California with Senator Ben Hueso, but we aren’t alone. In Kentucky, a State Senator was popped for DUI. His argument? It isn’t that he “didn’t do it,” or even that he could plead it down to whatever the equivalent of Wet & Reckless is in Kentucky.
Nope, he is claiming “Immunity” under the Constitution. Yep. He is claiming that section 43 of the State Constitution, which mirrors Article 1 section 6 of the US Constitution, EXEMPTS SITTING LEGISLATORS FROM ARREST, except for treason, felony or breach of the peace. This losers argument is a legal machination designed to excuse him from doing what would put you or I, were we to visit the beautiful Commonwealth of Kentucky, in jail.
And he’s doing it with a straight face.
So when you ask me “What’s wrong with the Country?” Now you know…
