THE TARNISHED GOLDEN STATE

According to the United States Census Bureau Supplemental Poverty Measure, California has the highest poverty rate in the country. One in five people in California are living in poverty and the state’s residents account for 33% of all those on welfare in the United States, despite the state only being 12% of the country’s population. The state spent $958 billion on welfare programs between 1992-2015. According to the study, 60% of Californians are jobless and living in poverty.

California is a sanctuary state and is often championing movements which find ways to grant protections and entitlements to immigrants at the expense of Americans. While an astronomical 30% of Americans in California are receiving means-tested welfare, this pales in comparison to the 55% rate of use by immigrant families consuming this type of welfare. The state is handing over tons of cash to foreign nationals at the expense of Americans.

One contributing factor to their high poverty levels is their lack of affordable housing. Housing in California has become increasingly out of reach for the middle class due to building regulations and space constraints. This has caused housing to consume far more of the average residents income than in other parts of the country, leaving them with less money for food, transportation, healthcare and other services.

 

THE CHRISTMAS IS NOT MERRY IN CALIFORNIA

First of all Christmas or Merry Christmas is verboten, “Happy Holidays” is the politically correct term for the progressive elite, politically correct, anti America, lap dog one world order type, apologetic miscreant inhabitant of the Golden State.

California’s politicians are hell bent on reversing the history of the golden state. The Pols are on the verge of tapping the gold of its citizens; many of them are visibly upset, particularly the Democrats. As we approach election season once again their constituents don’t find themselves too happy about being gang raped – the thinking is that they will take out their anger on the incumbent, ala Eric Cantor.

What gets them upset is Cap ‘n Trade, California’s boogeyman. Democrats whose beliefs are set in stone, think Marxism – tax the productive and transfer the wealth to the parasitic moocher are in a very precarious position. An extra $25 per week for a movie mogul doesn’t register, but to a gardener $25 can make a huge difference in life style.

Is it possible that the Green Agenda will be frozen for the forseeable future? Once the bees nest is aroused many are bitten. And soon inflation will be raising its ugly head, with pay flat, many of the middle class will call for a revolt. We like that kind of scenario. As the old saying goes, how do you turn a liberal into a conservative? Mug ‘m.

UPDATE – MUSLIMS STRIKE THE HEARTLAND = ISLAMIC EXTREMIST = ISIS

“WE ARE TO BLAME” Low life Muslim leader from CAIR says we are to blame for these attacks. In a Friday CNN interview, Hussam Ayloush, of the group’s Los Angeles chapter, said American foreign policy has helped fuel the rage that drives Muslim radicals to kill in the name of their faith.

Americans should be vigilant to the Muslim onslaught of conversion by force. “Convert or die” is their motto. They have brainwashed large swaths of populations that human salvation is by the way of Allah. This is not a religion but a political philosophy of conquest. Freedom is a foreign concept to the Koran. Beating of women, rape and killings are their means of enforcement. Those who are converted have no way out; they are frightened to tell the truth. One may ask why do they pray five times a day, once is not enough? America, we are now in a war. Our President is one of them.

As Obama will have you believe, this is a “going postal” carnage, however these are Islamic/Muslim terrorists who has been radicalized, like a cancer switch turned on. These two Jihadists are in the same camp as the murder Islamic killer at Fort Hood.

Remembering the Fort Hood tragedy was characterized by Obama as “work place violence.” Obama will not mention Islamic Terrorists, it is not in his descriptive jargon. One may ask why, but the answer is simple, “Obama is one of them.”

Federal investigators believe there is a “very serious” possibility that Tashfeen Malik, one of two shooters who murdered 14 people and wounded 21 others in San Bernardino, Calif. Wednesday, radicalized her husband and co-assailant, county restaurant inspector Syed Farook, Fox News has learned.

The scene in San Bernardino was described as chaos, Two Muslim terrorists, well armed, shot dead at point blank range 14 unarmed physically challenged individuals. An unprovoked attack by Islamic extremists, one at least who made a trip to Saudi Arabia, possibly a radicalized lone wolf, who took their anger out on the defenseless. The best definition of the perpetrators are “savages”.  CAIR has condemned the attack; this is an expected reply, a PR ploy in name only, to protect the guilty.

An eyewitness at the Inland Regional Center, where 14 were killed and 17 wounded, told police he saw a man leaving a meeting of county health department employees Wednesday morning, looking nervous. Police officers named Syed Farook as that man in their radio communications. At approximately 11 a.m., two people entered the center and opened fire. According to authorities the on-going investigation is in the preliminary stage; being fluid it will take time for the details to come out.

‘Convert or die’ ISIS graffiti jihadis declare first European ‘caliphate’

ISLAMIC State graffiti has appeared in a European city as sympathisers of the group claim “the caliphate is here”.

The terror group’s logo was daubed on the wall of a restaurant in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Chilling messages such as “convert or die” and “the caliphate is here” were also found covering the outside of Markus Samuelsson’s bakery.

“I felt a sudden chill down my spine. It’s terribly painful, we feel threatened,” Samuelsson said.ISIS jihadis in IraqFEAR: Jihadis are targeting Christians in Sweden – like they did in Iraq

THE PROOF IS IN THE PUDDING

Since 1964 trillions of dollars have been spent to try to even the education gap. And every year the educator elites ask for more. However, the latest news from (click here)California is very disheartening. Blacks and Latinos have fallen farther behind Whites and Asians. In that subject, 69% of Asian students achieved the state targets compared to 49% of whites, 21% of Latinos and 16% of blacks. Two things stand out, one is that money does not solve all problems and two, the education industry has been misleading the taxpayers for four decades. The time has come to stop the charade and admit the truth.

CALIFORNIA DESERT RATS

As in the iconic film “Chinatown” the environmentalists of today are discharging millions of gallons of water into San Francisco Bay in an accommodation to the Greens. Additionally, the farmers are swallowing water like there is no tomorrow. Governor Browns explains this by insinuating that if water use is curtailed to the corporate farm our food bill will take a significant hit.

However, Governor Moon Beam has a very slim understanding of the power of economics; substitution will overcome any price rises; by the way who needs a $5 head of lettuce? And we may add that under today’s allocation of water resources 600 gallons of water are needed to produce a pound of almonds – California produces 90% of the worlds almonds and its millionaire farmers make $5,000 per acre. In a “nutshell” the rich are getting richer at the expense of families who have little to drink other than the tears flowing from their eyes.

Desalination plants are the answer to the current drought, but with Green lobbyists roaming the streets of the state, new plants are seen as a distant mirage. And we may add in closing, from the last we heard California has been a desert environment for millions of years so what is the big deal.

A gerbil once known simply as “desert rats” are adapted to arid habitats. As is often the case when man tries to overcome a harsh environment unintended consequences occur; for example the current thirst for water by many different stake holders,  each with a different thirst. We will drink to that.

THE CALIFORNIA INSANE ASYLUM – THE CUCKOO’S NEST

 Dianne Feinstein: “All vets are mentally ill in some way and government should prevent them from owning firearms.”
Quote of the Day from the Los Angeles Times:
“Frankly, I don’t know what it is about California, but we seem to have a strange urge to elect really obnoxious women to high office. I’m not bragging, you understand, but no other state, including Maine, even comes close. When it comes to sending left-wing dingbats to Washington, we’re Number One. There’s no getting around the fact that the last time anyone saw the likes of Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, Maxine Waters, and Nancy Pelosi, they were stirring a cauldron when the curtain went up on ‘ Macbeth ‘. The four of them are like jackasses who happen to possess the gift of blab. You don’t know if you should condemn them for their stupidity or simply marvel at their ability to form words.”

CALIFORNIA A MEXICAN STATE – BUENOS DIAS AMERICANOS

FROM BB-logo-highres.jpg

During Thursday night’s California gubernatorial debate against Republican Neel Kashkari, California Governor Jerry Brown (D) revealed that nearly 30% of the state’s schoolchildren are either illegal immigrants or do not speak English.

Brown, who recently said that illegal immigrants from Mexico were “all welcome in California,” praised his administration’s immigration policies. He said that California is “setting the pace” on immigration laws and mentioned bills he signed that gave driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants, made California a sanctuary state (Trust Act), and granted in-state tuition to illegal immigrants (CA DREAM Act). Brown then said that these policies were necessary because “about 30%” of schoolchildren in California are “either undocumented or don’t speak English.”

A California Immigrant Policy Center report found that there are 2.6 million illegal immigrants in California (or 26% of all immigrants) while illegal immigrants make up nearly 10% of the state’s workforce, including “38% of the agriculture industry and 14% of the construction industry.”

According to The New York Times, 28% of Californians were born outside the United States in 2012 and, according to Pew Research, “Latinos make up nearly 40% of the state’s population and have made California ‘only the second state, behind New Mexico, where whites are not the majority and Latinos are the plurality.'”
