Ca. Leads The Country In Social Tyranny

While the rest of the country attempts a return to Americanism, California continues to head down a dead end track to totalitarianism and poverty.

Opinion by de Andréa

With the exception of a couple of years in the early eighties, California has been hijacked by the brain-dead Democrat Liberal Communist Party who had been running things in Sacramento for more than four decades. These otherwise unemployable Communist Socialists partisans have been uniformly choosing the wrong tax and spend and governance and destructive tyrannical regulatory policies for more than 40 years.

They have taken the most advanced and best public educational system in the country and trashed it, and turned it into a robotic indoctrination institution at best. From what was on a par with any university education in America just a generation ago, we now have to feel lucky that there's a Louisiana, a Mississippi and an Alabama, or California would rank last out of the 50 states.

Every survey of business leaders over the past several years ranks California in the bottom two or three states in terms of friendliness to business formation and operation. Maybe that's why so few choose to start businesses, relocate, or open branch operations here. I myself fought for 30 years with the tyranny of the regulatory Gestapo.

Our income taxes are the third-highest in the country. Our sales taxes are fourth highest in the nation. Public employee’s, cop and fire unions are so gargantuan they're strangling our cities and our state with an unfunded pension bomb that's ready to explode in our collective faces. It's to the point that we now work for them, not the other way around. How was this allowed to happen?

Our road and bridge infrastructure is decaying before our very eyes. Our once-vaunted Central Valley agriculture once capable of feeding half the world, and recently produced more than 20% of all fruits and veggies in the nation, is now a depression-era dustbowl because some Commie Pinko weenie self-appointed legislator in a black robe shut off their water in favor of a three inch fish. What's that, you ask? This judge preferred a little Anchovy-sized fish over suffering drought-stricken jobless people. So the fish lives, and they die. We may even run out of food…Oh well! We can always eat the little fish. On second thought the stupid little thing is designated as an endangered species. Kinda like real Americans.

Mayor Gavin Newsom of San Francisco (a noted illegal alien sanctuary city), now elected second in command in California, won't let the ROTC into its schools. S.F. prohibits the military from filming commercials inside county limits or the docking of navy ships, and it won't stop aggressive panhandling on city streets. But it will however prevent its citizens from buying guns to defend themselves from an ever rising crime rate and buying pets because they might abandon them. And now, San Fran has just passed legislation to prevent McDonald's from selling “Happy Meals” because they're deemed by the calorie police to be unhealthful…Amazing, do you think they really care about little bellies getting fat or is it just about power and control?

And these same liberal Commie policies have turned Los Angeles into a third world-toilet inhabited by illegal aliens and fourth-generation welfare recipients, sucking up our tax dollars like a Hoover vacuum cleaner on steroids.

Californians get what they deserve, because while the rest of the country rebelled against the tyranny of the liberals, California voters absolutely refused to change it. The election that just concluded gave Golden Staters yet one more chance to fix some of our current problems and prevent a plethora of others in the future. And what did you do California? You blew it, big time. You reelected Jerry Brown, the guy who earned the moniker "Moonbeam" when he was the Guv in the seventies. He appointed Rose Bird as Chief Justice of the state Supreme Court. She helped modify our justice system by overturning all the death penalty cases, every single one that came before her, 62 in all, including the Manson Family killers. And good ole Jer’ put us on the road to economic bankruptcy by signing legislation that permitted collective bargaining for public employee unions, which now threatens our State's very economic existence. Oh well we are probably too big to fail, Ben Bernanke will just have too start the printing presses again. Jerry vehemently opposed Proposition 13 until it passed, at which time he decided to support it. Flip-Flopper? You decide. After he termed out, he ran for and was elected Mayor of Oakland. He was so successful in this job the state was forced to take over their school system (a good case of the blind leading the blind). And, he managed to also double their murder rate. (one could argue he might have been even more successful if he had tripled it!)

Then, when you elected him as our illustrious Attorney General, Jerry refused to defend Proposition 8 in the courts even though he was obligated by law and his oath of office to do so. Whatever you think about gay marriages, Prop 8 made it illegal, and good old ‘Jer had a duty to defend it, despite his personal views on the subject. The Attorney General, nor any sworn official, does not have the right to pick and choose the laws they wish to support.

And now, Jerry Brown will likely live out his life without ever having had a private-sector job. Imagine. You get kicked out of the Jesuit seminary and then feed at the public trough for the rest of your liberal little, otherwise unprepossessing life… just astounding.

Then there's Bab’s Barbara Boxer. You reelected her, too California. After three terms in Washington representing herself, during which she earned the lowest possible rankings as to effectiveness, you sent her back for another six years for more of the same. She's never had a real job either; moreover, she has never met a payroll, never signed a check on its face, and knows nothing about private sector job creation. What she does know is that late term (murder) ‘a’… partial birth abortion is the preferred method of getting rid of those kids who can’t vote for her. And oh, she knows how to spend your money better than you do. She voted for tax increases 258, that’s two hundred and fifty eight times (for those of you that don’t know your numbers to good) during her ho-hum tenure. Even her home-town newspaper refused to endorse her, saying she was an ineffective and ineffectual senator and should be put out to pasture. But no! You bunch of robots; you decided to send her back again. Either of Jerry's or Bab's opponents would have been preferable to these preening, elite loser commies… but you decided turn your state into a third world garbage dump.

Now let's talk about the measures.
You failed to pass Prop 19, the pot legalization measure. That was surprising to me, because I assumed the majority of Cal voters had to be high on weed to have voted the way you did.
You voted down Prop 23, our last and best hope to derail AB32, the weed-hugger Global Warming Solutions Act, which Schwarzenwhoozits signed into law in 2006. That's the one whereby California decided to fix the world's climate problem all by itself, by rolling back greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels by 2020, representing a 40% reduction. Of course, all the experts say doing that would be impossible without taking every single car and truck off the road not just in Caleeeforneea but in the country, but hey, nothing appears impossible to those nice air-head folks in Sacto. And who knows maybe the commute time will get shorter once all the cars and trucks are gone. So, AB32 kicks in on January 1, 2011, and the next sound you'll hear will be the doors slamming shut on U-Haul trucks as businesses prepare to vacate Caleeeforneea. And they'll take at least 1,000,000 jobs (that’s a million jobs for those of you that live in Rio Linda) with them. And your electric bill will double or triple after they go. The only ones left will be Starbucks baristas selling lattes to sign twirlers. I've said before and I say again, if you believe that carbon dioxide…, you know, the stuff plants breathe in and you exhale, is a greenhouse gas and air pollutant, please all you liberal commies will you stop all that bloody exhaling.

And Prop 25…Yep, it passed. That's the one that lets those Sacto Commie lifers pass a budget with a vote of 50% plus one. No more 2/3rds supermajority needed, so the Commie Dems can now pass a budget without a single Republican vote, another small step for government another giant step for tyranny. You think taxes may go up? Yeah ya think??? And often? Why, I ask --- do we even need a Republican or opposition party anymore? Truth is, we don't. There is no opposition. That single-party parliamentary-style deal has worked so well in countries like Cuba, North Korea, China, and Russia. It might work here just as well.

So, California, I no longer feel sorry for you, you did it to yourselves, and you get what you deserve. You have given up you right to complain, and likely all of your other rights as well. You have turned the state of California into Greece, and now you've wasted your last, best chance to correct it before the train wreck. We've finally reached the tipping point. That's where the statist, big tyrannical government-loving weenies and the socialist hand-out welfare crowd are able to vote themselves stuff at the expense of those few remaining folks who actually try to produce something in our society. I just feel sorry for myself, for my family and for my friends. But I don't feel sorry for the rest of you jerks who made this sorry likelihood possible. Remember when government plunder exists, tyranny exists.

In all fairness though, you really couldn’t help it, you have been brainwashed by the Caleeeforneea State system of indoctrination, and are incapable of original thought. Or, in words that you might be able to understand, ‘you’re a bunch of robotic commie idiots’.

I hope you're happy with yourselves…
