All the dark-blue Democrat states are in serious financial trouble. It’s only a matter of time before California and Illinois go into receivership. Do we even know what happens if a state goes bankrupt? I knew a New Jersey town that went bankrupt in the 1930s and was almost a ghost town by the 70s–almost all of every tax dollar they collected went to pay off the debt. They had fifty years of dreary misery before getting out from under that.
“Yeahbut, yeahbut, yeahbut! Of course we can keep spending money we don’t have! We’ll either get it back in taxes or it’ll rain down from the sky!”
Nothing good can come of being governed by lunatics.
I won’t forget the image of those Democrat wack-jobs clawing at the doors of the Supreme Court while Brett Kavanagh was being sworn in, and neither should you. What would they have done, if they could have broken down the doors?
Freedom and dignity are not natural to the inhabitants of a fallen world burdened with Original Sin. The California State Senate keeps trying to prove it.
Hence Senate Bill 1424, introduced by Stalinist wannabe Richard Pan, a bill to make “fake news” or “false information” published anywhere on the Internet a crime, punishable by imprisonment: you could go to jail for “questioning science” and voicing doubt about vaccines, Climbit Change, whatever (https://www.naturalhealth365.com/vaccines-fake-news-2536.html). You could even be jailed for questioning the dogma of Evolution.
After the details of this monstrosity were reported last month, raising a rather loud public outcry against it, the senate has rushed through several major amendments, the overall effect of which will be to “study” it all and kick it down the road to sometime next year. Wait till the heat dies down, then try again.
This bill was a beauty. Every Internet site–I guess that would include blogs, like this one–would be required to “verify” all news stories–the term “news story” is left undefined–before publication. Then, if designated “fact checkers” find any “false information,” up the river you go. No distinction is made between, say, maliciously fabricated mischief or an honest mistake. And we can only guess who would get to be the fact checkers. Oh–and who gets to decide what the “facts” are? Nancy Pelosi? Michael Moore?
This is a remarkable production by people whose academic position is that there is no such thing as truth, there are no facts, there are only psychological or social “constructs”–like your sex, for instance: which they insist is whatever you say it is from moment to moment–who yammer endlessly about “your truth” and “my truth,” only somehow their truth always wins and you get packed off to sensitivity training if you don’t agree–
But what are we thinking? Now they want to pack you off to jail.
How did our country’s political class ever produce such a pack of totalitarians as these?
Did they already have the Big Quake, and is California broken off and drifting out to sea? Is that state still part of America?
Last week the California Legislature narrowly voted down a bill to drop George Washington’s birthday or Abraham Lincoln’s birthday as a paid state holiday and replace it with “International Workers Day”–the traditional communist/socialist “May Day.” But the bill did make it through committee and is on the docket for another vote soon. Maybe this time they can push it through.
If you actually need to tell anyone that communism has ever been anything but a pure disaster, you might as well save your breath. No point arguing with a stone.
Gee, I wonder if “International Workers Day” is gonna be part of that big Blue Wave that’s supposed to sweep these left-wing loons back into power over our country.
What do they mean? Well, writing or saying anything that could be construed as trying to encourage “sexual orientations change efforts”–like, for instance, quoting a Bible verse on repenting from sexual sin, or teaching your children that there are only two “genders” and all the rest is political poppycock. The bill makes it a crime to say or write such things–a crime to be punished by imprisonment. It would also allow the state to close churches, or even ban the Bible.
(“A funny thing happened to me on my way to North Korea. I wound up in California!”)
That the measure would be blatantly, flagrantly, boisterously, overpoweringly, and laughably unconstitutional seems to bother nobody in the California legislature. So it won’t survive a court challenge, unless the whole country’s gone as mad as California; but it’ll destroy some lives before it gets struck down.
Meanwhile, it does tell us, in no uncertain terms, where the Democrat Party is coming from and why it must never, never, ever again be permitted to take power over our country. Not ever.
