Lt Col Ralph Peters Ret. said different Darmok and I trust his assessment.

There are many good people in Cali. The norther half are great, same with the eastern half. A lot of hard working honest people. The biggest problem is you are outnumbered 20-1 because of the coastal cities.

When the lying liars lie too much, even the corrupt, immoral and gullible stop listening.
Even the mixed up white ones who think they're black......
This woman is as hard to stop as a pre historical cockroach. With all the bad press why in hell does anyone support her?
Sanders doesn't think progressives take wall street money? Good one.
This guy will loose it then, when he learns that Michael Brown was not shot with his Hands Up.
It sucks when you pull your head out!
i dont know, i think he said " ill tell the truth this time..." just before unloading. im convinced hes telling the truth now, /S/
Why are you even giving this guy any attention at all, much less any credence to what he thinks about anything, Jon Street?
This idiot is irrelevant.
Why don't you go after real stories that we actually need to know about.

Even the people with money try to not do their main business in California due to taxes and EPA rules. HQ’s may be there, development, but actual companies do their main business/production elsewhere. And the people that run most of those companies in Silicon valley are diehard liberals, they may be smart, but their politics are stupid.

What flipped the state is all the sane people left, and the only ones there now are the crazy loons. Anyone with money or brains left long ago. So when you get crazy and poor together, we get Pelosi, Boxer, Waters, Brown, Feinstein. Look at who they elect, look who runs their state, look at the policies the implement, and then look at who they blame when all their decisions blow up in their face, like a bad episode of The Roadrunner.
California is the geatest economic engine in this country. Silicon valley ring a bell? Hollywood? Obviously you can't believe what you wrote.
Worse; its more akin to a nuclear detonation continuing without end, causing massive damage that will be near-impossible to restore in any form.
While we’re at it don’t forget to give him credit for…
Kicking the working man while he’s down.
By TAXING his “unemployment benefits” …!
Closing all the “loony bins” that housed all the nut-jobs,
that’s were released upon the public thereby allowing them to breed.
Making a cesspool out of our gene pool.
You will NEVER hear me use Reagan as
some kind of republican savior of the nation.
We’ll have to go back to the gold standard .
And even then our country was walking a tightrope.
EgalacSnerd, Perhaps you're not aware that many of California's "success" stories are actually examples of crony capitalism.
Why is it that California Democrats voted to raise California's already highest-in-the-nation income tax rates? The Democrats will tell you that it was "for education." The result is that California now has the #1, #2, and #3 highest income tax rates in the nation and the nation's highest state sales tax rate. Much of the tax hike money went to pay for the unfunded, retroactive pension benefits that Democrats granted to their union cronies back in 1999 (SB400). The California Democratic Party is beholden to public sector unions. Heck, the California Teachers Association is called the "un-elected 4th branch of government."
CA Gov. Jerry Brown convinced the Democrats' Hollywood cronies (NBCUniversal, Sony, Disney, Dreamworks SKG, Warner Brothers, Reid Hastings of Netflix) to help fund their tax hike bill.
After it passed, Hollywood threatened to leave California due to the high taxes. The Democrat-controlled California legislature then voted to give Hollywood $330 MILLION PER YEAR. It was a great scam to filter public money to solid cronies and party donors.
There's a reason that California has ranked DEAD LAST on multiple surveys as the worst state for business. As a fourth-generation Californian, it pains me to see what has become of our state.
Gerrymandering by the state legislators is a bigger reason. I've grown up here in CA and dealt with the cesspool of liberal ideology. I've got 8 more years of living under the crazies. There are far more conservatives here than anyone believes. We've just been redistricted to death!
Think about it:
You are living on a rock that is shaking and about to fall into the ocean....
Sane Conservative- "I think I'd better protect my family and move to someplace safe."
Insane Liberal- "Feel that? Cool! Pass the pot... I think I'll get naked and make some babies!"
Darmok, You manage to paint an entire state and its population with one broad stroke of a brush. Most of Northern Cali is very Conservative. You see Jefferson State sings everywhere. I raised my family in a small town on the Central Coast, and enjoyed a very conservative environment, with great schools and teachers. It's the metropolitan markets and inner city that are pure blue, and the Dems and elitists rule plantations in those area.
We producers left leaving the moochers and looters. If the computer stuff tanks, good night. Even the lib hollywood folk don't want to pay a premium to shoot there so go to New Mexico, other states or countries. However, the middle class schmucks remain to be fleeced to pay for govt workers, illegals and drug addicts who don't work. They will run out of others money sooner than later.
Yes, they left and they voted for RHINO types to combat the liberals, so what do you expect.
No Glenn, East LA predates Reagan by a few decades...Republican leaders in CA destroyed the state and people turned to Democrats who can continued its failures. Decades of over taxes, terrible law after law and a general and a bloated govt...not Reagan...he didn't help but CA loves it's gardners, housekeepers, busboys, car washers...their kids are now the middle class of cops, teachers, docs and lawyers.
“It was Ronald Reagan and his amnesty, the thing that he said was the biggest mistake of his entire presidency, that changed California from red to blue,” Beck said.
Absolutely correct. Now we have Amnesty International candidate Marco Rubio running as the second biggest mistake.

In other news, hundreds of Britains were surrounded and molested while protesting. The perps were said to be wearing Police uniforms and had very bad teeth.
The Village people were brought in for questioning.

Take a page out of Satan’s playbook. How do you beat God? Get everyone to not believe in him. Same thing with beating Santa Claus, feed people the truth about the consequences, talk about how much taxes will have to go up, and discuss the outcome of every country that has tried this. Although this won’t work with the stupid and ignorant, they will always be that way, but the independents should be able to be reasoned with. That is how you beat Sanders Claus.
Progressives are 'chimney challenged' when it comes to having an open mind.
She agrees with The Burn . Free Cheese all around.
No, I think Bill Clinton was the one getting things done in DC. How many women were sexually assaulted by him again?
I have filed both State and Federal Taxes with the IRS every year since I was 13. Why do I not get FREE STUFFs?
"Oh, that way madness lies; let me shun that."
—William Shakespeare, King Lear
"Truth to a Liberal is as Salt to a Slug"
..."Although this won’t work with the stupid and ignorant, they will always be that way"...
Or they close their minds off and hear only what they want to hear. That's why Donald Trump is so popular with his followers. They will bash Cruz, Rubio, Bush, for being progressive on this, progressive on that, but give Trump -the biggest progressive supporter of them all- a free pass on everything. And that is why the country is lost.
Look up the dictionary definition of "Old Nick".
Communism....common sense. She gets those two mixed up a lot.

He has a right to act that way to congress, because, as everyone, even congress themselves, have forgotten. Congress WORKS for the people. We are not subservient to them, the only power they hold over us is the power we give them. So, he may have acted like an A Hole, but that is his constitutional right.
And before anyone jumps on me about defending him, I think he is a scumbag for what he done with his company, but it looks like he will be going to jail anyway, and again, it’s his company. Hopefully Karma kicks him in the nads.
Agreed. We treat those a-holes in Washington like they are royalty.
THAT is why I loved it when Trump put down Ghramn and McCain.

Clinton is coaching him. Next they will ask us to define the word “is”.
But I expect if a country like, say, Germany, suddenly starts singling out and killing, a group, like, Muslim refugees, Obama wouldn’t have a problem SCREAMING the words, “Genocide”. You see, it really depends on what the definition of “is” is.
It's important to note that anybody that isn't Muslim is expendable, and are considered sub-human to them. Because they consider most of the ethnic groups under siege to be on the same level as pigs, there is no genocide going on; just a mass slaughter of surplus livestock. This is likely the definition Obummer is using.
Does anyone remember Bosnia? The leftist lawyer in chief had no problem calling it ethnic cleansing when muslims were the targets of angry locals. Slick Willy bombed the he11 out of the Serbs and charged their president with crimes against humanity. That country is now part of ISIS.
Let's not be stupid here. ISIS kills every freaking body. Yeah, they kill Christians but they mostly kill other Muslims by far. So is ISIS committing genocide against Muslims because they kill far more of them than they do Christians?
ISIS kills everybody who won't become their willing slaves or go to battle for them. The Qur’an says religion cannot be forced on anyone. ISIS doesn't represent the the Islam that most of the four billion believe in.
I know it's PC to say all Muslims, all one billion of them, one quarter of the world's population are evil and want to kill you. That's the politically correct position. I know you get lots of thumbs up for saying that and proclaim that you are real Christian at the same time.
Sorry I don't do PC. And I don't judge entire ethnic or religious groups based on the actions of a few who of that ethnic group or who claim to be of this or that religion. Excuse me if I'm not PC enough for you.
Skinnydude- they target Christians specifically. Muslims are just incidental collateral damage.
Darmok, you took the thoughts I had about Josh's response to the question right out of my mind. I was thinking the same thing about if a bunch of Muslims were to start being killed, Obama would be out there to quickly call it genocide. Just look at the ratio of "refugees" being sent over here and elsewhere. Isn't something like 250 Muslims to 1 Christian? Obama and the U.N. don't care about the Christians.
Slenderman, I maybe politically incorrect but I will venture out to say that not all Muslims are bad, just a lot of them. I do believe that there are some Muslims that are peaceful and want to get along with people of different religions but that they are afraid of speaking out against the radical Muslims. That is just like saying when a So called Christian goes out and shoots and kills an abortion doctor, all Christians are labeled as radicals, haters, and any other name you can think of by the liberals both politicians and the media.
Slenderman there are a number of issues with your post that are just incorrect. Lets take this as they come.
In the first paragraph you equate the ISIS killing of Muslims to the killing of Christians. The problem here is that ISIS is killing Muslims to force their compliance with ISIS views. ISIS is killing Christians because they want them all dead and gone. See the difference?
The Qur'an says religion can not be forced on anyone? Some Qur'an verse references for those that wish to see where the Qur'an supports violence to eradicate non-believers. Qur'an 8:38-39; 9:29; 9:5, 9:11 and I could go on but I am running out of space if I want to address all in one post. You mention four billion believers, umm no.
You say that it is "PC" to say Muslims are evil and want to kill you. To help you out here, PC means "Politically Correct". You know the things that are accepted by the establishment as being the correct way to think. What part of the establishment has ever said what you imply? But at least you are closer to the correct number of Muslims in the world this time. Even if you are well off on actual world population.
You say that you do not do "PC" but every point you spout is just that, "PC"
Obama does not want to insult his religion, Islam, by correctly stating that Muslims in the ME are killing or forcing conversion on all the Christians.
