Good news for government oriented special interests—bad news for government schools

 The revenues of the State are up—of course adding $6 billion to the budget via Prop.30 and another billion dollars from cap and trade helps.   But, the bad part is that the State of California has set up a budget system that when the next admitted recession comes (we are now in a Depression—but...

Well Meaning Anti-Domestic Violence Effort Could be Used as Anti-Second Amendment Project as Well

Domestic violence is a real and serious problem. Law enforcement has a major role in its prevention and apprehension. But, government is known to propose well intentioned plans that then become monsters before anybody knows it happened. Asset forfeiture laws are a great example—so many innocent victims, lives destroyed—all because we want to stop...

New study emphasizes differences among state’s Asian/API groups–Yet ALL Are Americans

Racism is prevalent in our society. Not intentionally, but by action. Ethnic studies classes, government documents in numerous languages instead of one. Quota’s, affirmative action, diversity studies and requirements. All around us we find government and interest groups trying to pull us apart instead of bringing us together. The President denounces a Cambridge, Massachusetts...

Spanish firm BLACKMAILS U.S. Taxpayers—Give us MONEY Or We Won’t Build a Solar Farm

This may be the funniest request for your tax dollars I have seen lately. A Spanish firm is threatening not to build a solar farm in the United States, if the United States does not give it federal tax credits. Let’s call their bluff and tell them to sell it to the Russians. Maybe...

Showdown Looms Over California’s School Construction Needs—Special Interests vs. the People

Once again the needs of the businesses, families and students are secondary to the special interest and their financial gains.

What difference does it make if...

State to use $19 Million of Gas Tax Money for Bike Paths—Instead of Streets

The next time you hit a bump in the road or your car has problems because of going over one too many potholes, you have Jerry Brown to thank. Have to slow down to ten miles an hour on a city street because of a biker to the side of you—thank our confused Guv...

Assemblymember Ian Calderon Proposes “Right To Try” Act To Remove Barriers For Terminally Ill Patients Seeking Investigational Treatment

Every once in a while even a Democrat does the right thing for the community. Assemblyman Ian Calderon has created a bill that allows those terminally ill to seek and use investigational treatments—treatments not approved by government (as if government is the right arbiter). When people have no other government allowed choices to save...

San Fran: Our Bad Housing Policies/High Taxes Cause to SUE Mountain View for Creating Jobs

There are some really crazy people in Northern California. Thanks to massive tax breaks—taking money from the poor and middle class and give it to multi-billionaire tech company owners, San Fran has lots of jobs (never a problem when the taxpayers are buying the jobs for the billionaires) but little housing. Mayor Lee of...

Elias: Cal PUC Corruption? Why NO Investigation?

Government is by its very nature corrupt. It takes from some and gives to others. It transfers money from the middle-class to the very wealthy. Government subsidizes what it want, not what the people want. What is the real cost of solar energy? It is 3-4 times your bill—the rest is paid for by...
