EP24 Featured Image

With Sean still gone for one more week my wife, Tatiana, joins me to lend a female perspective to #MeToo as we discus the Weinstein scandal. We also talk about California burning both literally and figuratively what with thousands of acres ablaze and our no longer needing to have a pesky sexual identifier on our documents.

Tired of it? We also talk California secession. Tatiana also provides some details on the OC Humane Society operating without a license and I rant about local politics. Read More

Why is Jerry Brown in Fullerton?

Brown in Car

Why is Governor Jerry Brown in Fullerton at the Fox Theater right now meeting with the Fullerton City Council, Assemblywoman Sharon Quirk-Silva and Fox Foundation President Leland Wilson?

Is Quirk-Silva trying to arrange for more cronyism to secure her re-election by saving that which thus far could not be saved?  She’s not willing to make the government better, and doesn’t give a lick about our State Constitution, so she must be trying to use other people’s money to buy re-election.  Maybe they’ll even put a plaque with her name on it if/when they finally open the Fox Theater around 2050 when all of Brown’s other projects debut.

(D)s Prioritize Higher Taxes Over Veterans

SQS-Brown Vets Cemetery

Let us talk about priorities. Why has Sharon Quirk-Silva not re-introduced a bill for the Veteran’s Cemetery in Irvine?

Sharon Quirk-Silva introduced a bill into the Assembly for the Veteran’s Cemetery in Irvine (AB409) which never even got a vote in committee.

The (D) Super-Majority outright ignored it. Her bill was later rolled into SB96. SB96 was a budget “trailer bill” which is basically an empty bill that is passed by the Senate with one line to be “Gutted” and a new bill full of legislation to b “Amended” into it by the Assembly before coming back for a vote before both houses. It’s a procedural trick which violates the spirit of the law and the very premise of good and open government.

To complicate matters because the Cemetery was rolled into SB96 with 95 other provisions, one of which is also an appropriations item, it is unconstitutional not once but twice and once specifically owing to the provision for the Veteran’s Cemetery itself. Read More

Episode 14 – Bust a Cap and Trade

Cap and Trade

Episode 14 – Bust a Cap and Trade

Tonight we talked about the insanity that is Cap and Trade and the betrayal of the California Republican party. There’s at least there’s one Republican who hasn’t lost their mind, but she decided to give up her leadership position as a form of protest. We also delve into the lie that is Cap and Trade and the horsetrading nonsense that went on to pass it. We also talk about the lie the Republicans told themselves (and the rest of us) to justify their vote for Cap and Trade. We finish with a story about how some California legislators plan on dealing with the affordable housing crisis. Stay positive out there. All hope is not lost. Read More
