    Bob Hope had it right even earlier….

    It was only a handful of years ago I made my way to SoCal and had long working vacations along the LA to San Diego beaches. They did seem like my idea of an American Nice.

    Don’t tell me there isn’t a plan in all of this. This despoilment is a perfect destruction of American strength and beauty.

    Every city councilman and mayor in SoCal needs to be brought before a righteous judge. There needs to be an accounting for this destruction. At the same time, there needs to be a rescue for these citizens who’ve fallen into the morass of homelessness. Yes, they bring it on themselves; that doesn’t matter. These are people. They go there (and to Seattle) because it’s a place to survive in and it’s wide open. You may say they are responsible for their drug addictions and predicaments, but the people who need to pay for this are the municipal criminals who pretend to be “city fathers”.

    Here’s another thought: run the illegals out, and house the homeless Americans in the facilities we’ve designed for criminal aliens.

    OK, I’m mad as hell and I’d better quit typing.

    Casey sed: “morass of homelessness. Yes, they bring it on themselves”
    It only takes a few errors in a row, and not necessarily on your part, to become homeless, and once you’re on the bottom it is very difficult to get up. THAT is tragic.

    US Constitution Article 4 Section 4. – “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion.” The 85% of you who lived outside of California did not do that. You failed in your duty to keep out Mexican invaders and what you got is the California that votes DemonRat (do recall that Ronaldus Magnus was Governor of California back when Americans were in the majority there). We the people of Mexifornia, attempted to stop this with the passage of Proposition 187 (passed by over 60% majority) and a federal judge told us that immigration was a federal issue not a state issue and threw it out. Various federal administrations failed to enforce our laws against illegal immigration and Californians were screwed. Add de-institutionalization of the mentally ill and it got worse (if you live in a state with lots of snow you sure cannot camp outside during the winter if you’re “homeless.”) It was a great place back in the day. Sadly not so now.

    To Casey Klahn’s point I ask what would be different if California’s elected politicians were actually actively anti-American working to destroy our country?

  • ghostsniper June 14, 2021, 7:29 AM

    “…a federal judge told us that immigration was a federal issue not a state issue and threw it out…”
    Is the video available of that judge being torched and dragged at high speed?
    I’d pay 100 of my favorite legal tenders to view that video many times in a row.

    I’ve been to city council meetings here in my little corner of So Cal. The mayor, and most of the council are good folks. “Based”, as the kids would say. We have one SJW on the council, and the locals are trying to recall his ass. They have worked hard to ameliorate the homeless problems. But I learned more from the Chief of Police at a meeting of St. Michael’s Warriors, a police support group. I can sum it all up pretty quickly. There is no penalty for most crime here. Drug possession? Even if it’s heroin or meth, there is no consequence. Vandalism? What are you going do with a bum with a spray can? The courts are swamped. Bike theft? oh, please…
    The prosecutors, and judges don’t even bother. Vagrancy? At least they have been able to curb it right here in town. The city was forced to build a shelter, but the upside of that is the cops have an option. They can tell the bums, “You can’t camp, but you can go to the shelter.” Nobody wants to go to the shelter. It’s a constant uphill slog.

    Apparently, Commiefornia is now TOAST.

    The entire state is now in a “MEGA DROUGHT” that PBS just said is “the worst in 1200 YEARS!” (But we know they’re fulla crap) It’s actually the worst one since the 1970s.
    Adding insult to injury, almost ALL major lakes and reservoirs in Commiefornia are at record, historic lows, including Oroville, Folsom, and others that provide not only water, but also electric power. Lake Mead is the lowest since the dam was built.
    Even groundwater is now being overtaxed, and thousands of wells in CA. have been “deepened” to keep from going dry. Aquifers are shrinking pretty fast. Farmers are in a panic. Millions of acres of farmland are now dust. Food prices will rise. Tens of thousands will be out of work.
    And Goob’ner Newsom will still spend billions on illegal invaders and his toy train, rather than on desalinization plants like the (very successful) one in San Diego.

    What could POSSIBLY be worse? Well, how about a huge HEAT WAVE to tax the power grid, quadruple the wildfire danger, and help evaporate the remaining surface water? Geesh…

    I couldn’t help but grin while sitting on my front porch yesterday, sipping ice tea and watching the impressive thunder and lightning storm drop massive amounts of fresh rain all over the extremely lush, green foliage in my area.
    And tomorrow morning I’m taking my boat out on one of the plentiful, serene, full-to-capacity lakes in our watershed district to enjoy my new Bimini top, and try and land a few fish.

    Neener neener!

    jmw – same thing in Seattle. Hell, they’ll do you one better. Not only won’t they prosecute for narc crimes, they’ll issue you some drugs as you ride the rails into town. Commit a crime as a homeless person? Cops look the other way. Jaywalk as a middle class citizen? Ticket for that. IOW, there are 2 classes under the law.

    City ordinances are only one part of the law, I guess. But the city is the bottom authority and something has to change everywhere up and down the West Coast. I know some of the LA beach towns are conservative but they may be outnumbered.

    On the subject of current times, and LA, this side note:

    I watched Escape from LA, starring the Computer Who Wore Tennis Shoes, as Snake Pliskin. Interestingly, the POTUS (Cliff Robertson) has Snake injected with a virus as a method coercion. After Snake accomplishes his mission, the POTUS and his henchmen allow that the virus was just a scare; a total fake.

    Let that sink in.

    That explains it all, and now I know where all the younger generations got geography lessons from.

    jwm sed: “There is no penalty for most crime here. The courts are swamped.”
    If there is no penalty, why are the courts swamped?
    jwm sed: “What are you going do with a bum with a spray can?”
    90 days scrubbing walls for the crime
    90 days more for the cost of the supervision
    1 way helicopter ride over catalina island

  • jwm June 14, 2021, 11:42 AM

    To clarify. What I wrote is what the Chief told us. The courts are a revolving door because of bad law. They can’t even handle the number of violent criminals, much less bother with the small guys.
    The punk with a spray can actually came from a real incident here in town. In another age and time the cops would have kicked his ass so hard he wouldn’t dream of getting near a spray can again. But that’s another age and time.
    Helicopter rides would be a good idea.

    Regarding Anon’s point about Casey’s point; I’m pretty sure they ARE actually, actively, anti-American and working to destroy our country!

  • Casey Klahn June 14, 2021, 3:12 PM

    Anon is making the same point as Paul Harvey did when he read: “If I were the Devil…”
    IOW, California government and bureaucracy is indivisible from Marxist horseshit, and why consider it any different or better? By the way I was brought up, we ought to be in a war with California right now. Rice paddies, Huey helicopters, MacArthur landing on the beach… I wonder how many nukes California has?

    The next governor of Cali, or Washington, or Oregon (OK, forget about Oregon) must be a Trumpist-style rainmaker. He must be a take-over CEO, and fully clean house. Christ in the temple driving out the money changers. John Wayne bitch-slapping every mother’s son of them. He’ll need to kick ass, and take names.

    If this doesn’t happen, needless death, squalor and poverty will continue unabated. You’ll wish every city truck was a bulldozer, and just ‘doze those tent camps into the Pacific Ocean and Puget Sound.

  • Wilfred Ruffian June 14, 2021, 3:12 PM

    It’s all part of the”worse is better” plan.

  • ghostsniper June 14, 2021, 5:50 PM

    OK, if they are trying to destroy the country where are they going to live if they succeed in their goal?
    I see this statement everywhere but I have seen no clarity.
    It seems to tantamount to standing on a chair with a rope around your neck and kicking the legs out.
    What am I missing?

  • Mike-SMO June 14, 2021, 11:19 PM

    I would like to thank California for collecting and supporting all the drugged, demented and criminal low lifes to make the rest of America a better place. The Libs wanted to close all the mental institutions and release all the prisoners of discrimination. Fine. Enjoy! Need more?

    I quit working at shoprite to work online and with a little effort I easily bring in around $45 to 85 per/h. Without ADt a my doubt, this is the pay easiest and most financially rewarding job I’ve ever had. I actually started 6 months ago and this has totally changed my life………… 𝙒𝙬𝙬.𝙅𝙤𝙗𝙘𝙖𝙨𝙝1.𝙘𝙤𝙢

    Or as we call the bums out here in the Central Valley: A Voting Block. 20+ years ago one of my wife’s lefty HS friends was in my living room bragging about turning out the bums living in Golden Gate Park to fix a mayoral election in SF.

  • Boat Guy June 15, 2021, 1:17 PM

    “…the rest of America” a ” better place”???? Like gretch’s michigan? cuomo/deblasio’s new york? newsom’s got serious competition all across the country.

    Boat Guy sed: “…newsom’s got serious competition all across the country.”
    Yep. Everything’s purple. Nothing is red, or blue. Purple. Even individual houses are purple much of the time.

    Was redding up out in the workshop this afternoon and came across a toolbox I hadn’t seen for awhile. A 20 incher. I wanted to see what was in it but when I grabbed it it was very heavy. WTF? Using both hands I dragged it out and sat it up on a workbench and opened it. Whoa.

    4500 rounds of .22lr in 12 boxes. How did they escape my inventory system? I pondered. Then I remembered. This past Jan a friend came across a deal of 9,000 rds for $300 and asked if I wanted to go in halfs? Hail yeah!!! It was cold when he brought it over and I didn’t want to mess with it. To keep any stray creatures that may be wandering about out of it I put all of it in that toolbox and shoved it under a workbench. I’ll be testing a box this weekend on the new custom Ruger 10-22 I completed a couple weeks ago. Kidd, Tandem Kross, Whistle Pig, etc., etc.

    Looks like you won’t have to worry bout the Aquila hijacking.
    Was packing b-day presents for the kids, including a 3-screw Single Six and was delighted to unexpectedly encounter numerous aspirin/ibuprofen bottles full of 40-grain goodness to accompany the gift and allow the young’ins to attain proficiency
