California is a national disaster – and a national disgrace. They have beautiful weather and topography – and awful, AWFUL public policy.
I thoroughly and wholeheartedly endorse California’s efforts to secede. Imagine how less insane would be our national politics – without California’s millions of Third World illegal aliens and fifty-five electoral votes.
These illegal aliens are legally and logically prohibited from affecting California’s fifty-five electoral votes. But why would that stop California?
“California Governor Jerry Brown signed Assembly Bill 1461, the New Motor Voter Act, which will automatically register people to vote through the DMV, and could result in illegal aliens voting….
“Because illegal immigrants are now eligible for obtaining driver’s licenses, they could be allowed to vote in elections if the Secretary of State’s office fails to verify their eligibility properly….
“(S)tate officials ‘specifically chose not to make noncitizen license holders searchable in their DMV database.’…
“Stephen Frank of California Political Review bluntly asserted…’AB 1461 assures corruption of our elections–our elections will look like those of Mexico and other corrupt nations – and honest people will stop voting since illegal aliens will out vote them.’”
And major Leftist cities are chipping away even further at election integrity.
Keep all of this nonsense in mind – when you next hear Leftists whining about Hillary Clinton winning the popular vote but losing the election. Clinton won the popular vote – by less than 3 million votes. She won California – by almost 4.4 million votes.
California’s sanctuary state insanity has turned the Golden State into an awfully awful place – exactly like the places the illegal aliens left: A Third World…outhouse. Literally:
California is now also a Third World outhouse politically. Dominant Democrats didn’t think they were yet dominating the state enough – so they passed this banana republic, further-Democrat-Party-enhancing nonsense:
“The ‘Top Two Candidates Open Primary Act’ requires that all candidates for a voter-nominated office be listed on the same ballot….(T)he two candidates receiving the most votes – regardless of party preference – would then go to the General Election ballot.”
So California now every election has a panoply of statewide general election races – with two Democrats running against each other. That’s not Third World at all.
So of course this Third World, banana republic…outhouse – is churning out all sorts of (additional) awful, Third World, banana republic…outhouse policy.
You know who likes Net Neutrality? Domestic Socialists – ideological twins to the Socialists in Third World, banana republic…outhouses.
Domestic Socialists – like proudly-avowed Marxist college professor (naturally) Robert McChesney:
“At the moment, the battle over network neutrality is not to completely eliminate the telephone and cable companies. We are not at that point yet. But the ultimate goal is to get rid of the media capitalists in the phone and cable companies and to divest them from control.”
How very Hugo Chavez of them. Chavez, of course, is the late former Communist leader of Venezuela – and for additional fun here’s the opening of The Communist Party USA’s obituary:
“The Communist Party USA expresses deep sorrow at the passing of one of the greatest political leaders of our time, Comrade Hugo Chavez, President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.”
There’s also domestic Socialist Mark Lloyd. Lloyd was the inaugural Chief Diversity Officer of the Barack Obama Federal Communications Commission (FCC) – and a huge fan of Net Neutrality.
You know of whom and what else Lloyd is a huge fan? Venezuela’s Chavez – and what Lloyd describes as Chavez’s “incredible, democratic revolution.” Here he is in a mid-2000s video – waxing poetic about the greatness of Venezuela and Chavez’s magical transformation-to-be:
“In Venezuela – with Chavez – you really have an incredible revolution. A democratic revolution. To begin to put in place things that are going to have an impact on the people of Venezuela.”
Well the things Chavez put in place certainly have had “an impact on the people of Venezuela.”
Outstanding. Very impactful.
And for fully full-circle California closure – we have:
The victimized people of Venezuela – are actually protesting the Socialism forced down their throats. Which at this point – is the only thing going down their throats.
San Franciscans – aren’t protesting their Socialism. They’re still stupidly voting for the Socialism Venezuelans are fully suffering. But San Franciscans will have plenty of fecal ammunition – if and when Reality finally breaks through to them.
In the meantime, our domestic Socialists are making much use of the defecation ammunition in question. And augmenting it.
And much like San Fran-Freako, wherever domestic Socialists gather – feces piles up. Ammo dumps, as it were.
“Many of the officers are wearing hazmat suits, possibly out of concern that protesters may be planning to throw urine or feces at them, though it also underlines the claim that the reason for the evictions are health and safety matters.”
Are these Poop People in favor of Net Neutrality? You bet your hopefully-thigh-high-boots they are.
Occupy Wall Street: Net Neutrality: We Need a Better Deal
We should give Antifa at least a little credit – for censorious honesty.
But suffice to say – Net Neutrality is really crappy policy.
Just like all the rest of the policy coming out of Communist California.
