Season 2, Episode 3 – New California Here We Come

Who needs to leave California with New California as an option? Well, those of us in Orange County because we’re on the wrong side of their silly line for one thing. We discuss this plan, or lack thereof.

High Speed Rail is getting more and more expensive so I try and explain how that is ripping us off and why Sacramento is lying to you about the funding.

We also talk about the Fullerton School Board voting to make firing terrible teachers a little bit more of a priority.

Season 2, Episode 1 – …and We Are Back

After a brief commercial break we are back with a new host and a new newness that’s totally new.

In Season 2, Episode 1 we start the New Year by letting you know some of the laws that are changing here in California. One in the right direction, most stupid or bad. Welcome to California.

We mostly just run through this list from KCRA in semi-reverse order:

We also outline a few things that we plan to change and I totally muck up the technology and make an utter disaster of things. Yay!

Newman Pushing SB1 Propaganda

Newman Brown Wallets
Newman SB1 Lie
Senator Josh Newman is a liar and/or the State of California is spending money it has yet to collect on projects of dubious justification. He is claiming that the funds from the gas tax is being used already to streamline projects. However SB1’s added tax on your yearly vehicle registration fee doesn’t start until January 2018 while SB1’s new tax on Zero Emission vehicles doesn’t start until July of 2020.
https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billNavClient.xhtml?bill_id=201720180SB1
SB1 Dates
 
The Gas & Diesel Fuel taxes which went into effect yesterday won’t be remitted to the State until the End of NEXT month. Those taxes are not paid immediately by the fueling stations which collect them from you each time your fill up.
 
Excise Tax Due Dates
This means that the State of California has yet to receive a single dime from the newest taxes on California’s working poor. At the earliest the State of California will receive fuel excise taxes from retailers at the end of December for the taxes collected from you, the driver, in November.
But Josh Newman doesn’t care about facts or what’s best for the residents of California. He is more interested in pushing out propaganda to justify yet another tax breaking the backs of Californians while the legislature ignores the fiscal problems they themselves created and continue to create.
When asked where the previous tax money had gone and why our roads weren’t being repaired Newman equivocated and demurred that he wasn’t here then and was interested in looking forward. He has no interest, as is evidenced by the bills he has voted upon and introduced, to fix our broken government. Instead Newman wants to do what every CA (D) always wants to do and that’s simply tax us into oblivion while he perpetually runs for re-election.
Newman sold himself as a fiscally responsible (D) and instead has proven himself to be a fraud and just another thief in the legislature looking out for his own interests.
With the fuel tax increase that arrived yesterday Christmas will be more difficult now that Josh Newman and his pick-pocketing friends in Sacramento have made all of our wallets that much lighter.
Unlike the Grinch of our childhoods don’t expect Newman or Brown to give back what they have stolen from us because they’d have to have hearts for them to grow one, let alone three sizes.

The Long Con of Kevin de León

Rendon-deLeon-Holder

California Senate Pro Tempore Kevin de León has announced that he is going to be running to represent California in the United States Senate by trying to defeat current incumbent Dianne Feinstein who has been California’s Senator since 1992.

Kevin de León isn’t running against Dianne Feinstein so much as he’s running against Donald Trump and that should worry California voters. While being the newest or loudest anti-Trumper may be a winning strategy in the liberal echo chambers of Sacramento, Los Angeles and San Francisco there isn’t anything positive or reaffirming to be gained by running as de León the demagogue. It doesn’t help that de León seems to have missed both that 3,916,209 Californians voted for Trump and also that Trump is our President and will remain so until at least the start of 2021 whether he likes it or not, impeachment myth notwithstanding.

By offering those nearly 4 million California voters nothing but showboating & scorn he gives them every reason to stay or vote against him. By constantly antagonizing Trump he all but guarantees that every bill he would want to push to accomplish anything legislatively will be a nothing but a dead letter upon arrival. Read More

It looks like we need to talk about the NFL Kneeling, college kids who don’t like Free Speech followed up by some typical nonsense from CA’s own Xavier Becerra.
