California Screaming: Vacaville California's "Fecal Fiasco" Condsidered as a Metaphor for California Itself

Always room for one more little political shit on the roof of California

I don't want to make too much of this story: Pigeon Droppings Cause Roof To Crash, but....

Actually I do want to make too much of this story. It seems to me to reflect as a real world metaphor, the past, present and what is to come for the no-longer-great state of California.

This small news item about a collapse is a real world example of the adage, "If something can’t go on, then it won’t. Gravity wins in the end." And, as far as California goes, it's about to reach the point in the Sgt. Pepper album where the Beatles sing:

"We'd like to thank you once again
Sergeant Pepper's one and only Lonely Hearts Club Band
It's getting very near the end."

And that's what's clearly on tap for a state that has let itself be run by an unholy cabal based in the S&M Swamps of San Francisco and the Mountains of Moonbat. Too bad really. I feel sorry for my friends who are trapped there in the land of "Why pay less for less?"

California once had some nice aspirations, before it allowed itself to be loosened and whored out like some pubescent pegboy from the Barbary Coast.

Here's the article in toto. I've just swabbed it lightly with strikethrough.


It's a fecal fiasco caused by 20 years of neglect.

The roof of a Quick Mart gas station in Vacaville, Calif., came crashing down under the weight of pigeon politician poop. Yes, that's right, pigeon politician poop. Twenty years of leaving the birds to it.

When firefighters showed up, they said it was nearly a foot thick in places, reported KOVR correspondent Jonas Tichenor.

"Disgusting," said customer Chris Doss, who narrowly missed the ultimate you-know-what storm.

Doss heard an explosion just seconds after she got in her car and said she "didn't realize it was pure pigeon politician poop at the time" but there were "a lot of feathers."

An outdated roof design allowed the pigeon politicians to have the run of the roost for decades, but that's about to change.

The owner who purchased the property in a foreclosure last year plans to take the entire structure down and invest in a badly needed pigeon politician protection plan, reports Tichenor.

"Over there, planning their next move..or in this case, poop." The entire country needs politician protection plans? Is there a White House czar for that?

Yes the fruits and nuts are the face of California, but the true political power is the unions, particularly the public employee unions. Pop a nuke in LA or San Fran... instant red state.

If feces can do that to a roof, somebody explain to me why the capitol building in Sacramento hasn't disappeared into a sinkhole.

Meh - they just need a federal bailout.

Seems like everyone I meet here in Austin is from California.

Casca,

It's worse than that:

"The Court, in a tie vote Tuesday, upheld the right of 23 states to compel public employees, such as public school teachers, to pay union dues." Whether they join the union or not.

@Rob, well all working people are compelled to pay for shit they don't want, so what's the big deal?
