OMG I haven't seen those signs yet it's time for the National Guard to move in a clean the state houses although the CaDopes will just re-elect Maxxine Insanity back into office (unless she's hung)
That is a very poor rendition of that song! I have the album it came out on back in the day and a much better rendition. That is the music from my days and I do still listen to a lot of it. Some would say I am "Stuck in a Groove" and I do resemble that remark. Still spinning vinyl after all these years. Thanks roadtrip. I think the only real help for California lies in the San Andrea's Fault and if we are lucky a tidal wave might take out all of NY City and much of the NE coast.Smoke another joint. You'll feel better....
I guess that's OKAY as long as when you BBQ you are not using the left over wood from your BBQd house. The land owner I care take for lives in Ojai and his house survived but friends and neighbors burnt to the ground.Y'all can bitch about California, but I've BBQ'd for dinner the last 5 nights out of 6 while in a T-shirt and jeans. House slippers too. Highs in the 60's.
My county sheriff is a firm believer in the constitution and issues CCW permits to anyone who doesn't have a criminal record. He also is turning his head the other way when it comes to businesses needing a permit to sell ammo. And he'll bust any illegals where ever he can find 'em. Our county banned the sale and growing of pot, no matter what. He's got the next election locked up I'd think!
So I got my pistol and I got BBQ. How bad can it be? Ha!
The surest way to do nothing is to assign every problem as either too difficult or not big enough to exhaust our efforts on. In a roundabout way that is how your post reads to me. I do not discount your criticisms but the inevitability of our demise is a song that has been sung for generations and has done nothing but breed generations of complacency. We start correcting our mistakes by refusing to continue making them over and over again.I'm pretty sure none of these issues are as simple as described here....I am surprised a sign like that could go up. This is not responsible leadership.
Though I suspect with the baby boomer generation retired, they want more tax payers desperately.
On the other hand... California is a desert. An over watered desert. Full of material excess and delusion. It's an unnatural environment that's unsustainable. Meanwhile Crony corporations use a partisan government to deploy divisive issues to keep us fighting so they can change the laws/regulations in their favor. Then we unknowingly bath our new born in carcinogenic soap and formaldehyde sleepers while they deflate the dollar and call it inflation. At the rate we're going most of us won't be able to afford our cancer treatments...I think we have bigger bones to pick.

Slightly over 5 million residents in all of Norway.I made a spelling error or two...oops
Not my point but I got you thinking...I like that. haha
My point is we're divided over issues that won't be reasonably resolved in a yes/no fashion yet that's the only dialogue that gets media attention.
And while we're divided, even bigger more menacing issues are over looked.
I think we need to be open to new ideas and work with those we disagree with on more reasonable solutions.
For instance our culture wants to punish crime and it's a revolving door yet Norway gives them full rehabilitation ( you can become a doctor or lawyer in jail) in turn they have less crime and better behaved inmates. It's unfortunate that someone has likely been victimized, but an eye for an eye won't correct anything. If someone did me wrong and I knew they were getting help to be a better person I'd be ok with that. Like a dog needs to be walked or they misbehave...we have needs that when they aren't met we act out.
They're trying to punish you if you decide to get "outta there" too. They failed so far - but - they tried to enact legislation that stated if you are getting a retirement pension that you earned while working in California; and you move outta state - the state would put a an additional "penalty for taking your money out of Cali tax" of around 30% on your monthly pension!Look at it this way Fred. You only have a couple of miles to move and you're "outta there"!
El Dorado County. Sheriff John D'Agostiniwow SkiPro what county in CA are you in sounds great!
77 degrees in the Phoenix valley today I was sweating with the AC on lol
In Socal now still 63 here and the suns been down for an hour
To D’Agostini, the law is tantamount to coddling criminals, and that doesn’t wash in the historic Gold Rush towns and foothill hamlets he serves. He said he would simply refuse to go along.
“I’m going to follow federal law on this issue,” said the sheriff from his office in Placerville, the county seat so closely associated with frontier justice that it was once known as Hangtown.
