Tuesday, January 16, 2018

With the reading of their own version of a Declaration of Independence, founders of the state of New California took the first steps to what they hope will eventually lead to statehood.

"There's something wrong when you have a rural county such as this one, and you go down to Orange County which is mostly urban, and it has the same set of problems, and it happens because of how the state is being governed and taxed," Preston said.

But unlike other separation movements in the past the state of New California wants to do things by the book, citing Article 4, Section 3 of the US Constitution and working with the state legislature to get it done, similar to the way West Virginia was formed.

Never going to happen, California is too important economically to the US for it to ever secede.

As a practical matter, now that we can no longer deduct SALT, Excremento is not going to be able to tax us with blind abandon, and something will have to change. One of the main reasons that the Democrats have controlled the State is that they have been giving handouts to the big cities (to drive votes, as Nulli continually notes) and there is no way that is going to be able to continue without creating deficits. One of the good things about Moonbeam's second go around is that he became a fiscal conservative and eliminated the deficits that Davis, Arnie and the Legislature created (much to the dismay of the Legislature, whose victory margins declined Statewide by 5% over the past three cycles), hopefully Newsom or Villaraigoza continue that fiscal sanity.

Too bad you don't get to directly elect your state representatives. Oh, wait....

"One of the good things about Moonbeam's second go around is that he became a fiscal conservative and eliminated the deficits that Davis, Arnie and the Legislature created..."

IOW, he taxed you with blind abandon...to pay the bills left behind. Wasn't Arnie's first big step to borrow ~$15 billion?

Thanks, Dan, for reiterating my point...which was completely unnecessary but if it made you feel better, go nuts.

There's nothing funnier than when a Trump voter claims to be from the common sense part of the country.

Boaz, I'm thinking that part of your problem is that every time some grunt saluted you, you thought he was telling you that you were smart.

#7 that would hit a lot harder if you were actually right about something once in a while.

You know Trump is a spectacularly incompetent president who behaves like a tantrum-throwing toddler.

Secede? If only there was a "didn't read before commenting" flag.

I will give you that. But he is nominating conservative judges to the court, so, it's a give and take..

Any Republican president would've appointed conservative judges when Republicans control Congress. That's not enough reason to support everything Trump does.

Pence would appoint conservative judges and wouldn't put us in danger of starting a nuclear war during a tantrum or humiliating the country all the time with his boorish behavior.

But if Pence became President his wife would become the First Mother.

Not so long as you support imposing your wildly unpopular views via the judiciary.

And yet he is doing a better job than Obama. The economy is humming north and south Korea are talking (which south Korea said it was a result of Trump) the only thing wrong is the media and the left is trying to make him fail in anyway possible. If Mother Teresa got the treatment Trump is getting in the press you would swear she was a child abuser.
