Can California afford to be such a Blue State?

August 30, 2012

No secret…!  California is a very Blue State. The lack of balance between Democratic Party to the GOP has created a stagnation of outrageous proportions that the State can no longer afford, but the fact is this imbalance will be around for many years to come and so will the strange and meaningless laws and regulations produced by the Democratic led legislature will be the death of what once was a well rounded and progress thinking State which has now turned to a government dependent society with very little forward motion.

While the economy of the Golden State flounders, the very expensive to operate legislature uses what should be smart working time in such idiotic rhetoric as;

AB 9, authored by Tom Ammiano (D-San Francisco), requires schools to implement bullying complaint procedures and alternative discipline policies for bullying.

AB 69, authored by Jim Beall (D-San Jose), grants counties access to the Social Security Administration to determine seniors who are eligible to receive food stamps.

AB 300, authored by Fiona Ma (D-San Francisco), imposes minimum standards for sterilizing, sanitizing and maintaining safety at body piercing, tattoo and permanent cosmetic businesses.

AB 341, authored by Wes Chesbro (D-Arcata), requires recycling for businesses and apartment buildings of more than four units that have more than four cubic yards of waste per week.

AB 959, authored by Brian Jones (R-Santee), allows welfare and food stamp recipients an extra month to file quarterly reports.

AB 1156, authored by Mike Eng (D-Monterey Park), revises the definition of bullying, gives bullied victims priority for transferring schools and requires bullying-prevention training.

AB 1215, authored by Bob Blumenfield (D-Woodland Hills), mandates used vehicle dealers to participate in a program for flagging salvaged and junk as well as raises the maximum document-processing fee for vehicles.

AB 1424, authored by Henry Perea (D-Fresno), mandates that the state suspend licenses from the state’s highest tax delinquents.

SB 190, authored by Alan Lowenthal (D-Long Beach), changes the enforcement of mechanics liens and requires a person to forfeit his lien if he includes labor or materials in a claim.

SB 222, authored by Noreen Evans (D-Santa Rosa) and Elaine Alquist (D-Santa Clara), ensures that all women receive maternity coverage regardless of their health insurance policies.

SB 424, authored by Michael Rubio (D-Bakersfield), authorizes a design professional to convert a lien assuming that certain requirements are satisfied.

SB 510, authored by Lou Correa (D-Santa Ana), authorizes a broker to appoint a manager of a branch office and delegate supervising responsibility to him.

SB 841, authored by Lois Wolk (D-Davis), imposes indemnity obligations on local agencies that fail to obtain approval.

And this is for July only. Not one fresh idea about how to fix the State’s economy, not one inkling of how to bring jobs back to the State, no indication what-so-ever about how to fix the immigration problem, gang violence, high utility prices, so my question is, why should Californians’ sustain the cost of operating this aberration of a legislature on a full time basis when what they do is worth nothing more than just a pile of beans?

I look at States that have made the leap and backed real change into the GOP, with politicians of good background in knowing how to fix things and all have been a complete success. Every single State of the Union that has elected a smart GOP governor, has balanced their budgets; and done so without raising taxes, they have taken the powerful unions and come out ahead based on logic and long term planning, they have made great leaps into modifying the education systems and have brought hope and benefits to the students, teachers and parents. In California, we can only boast of being so dumb that we allow ourselves to be hoodwinked by a professional politician with a very poor history in all manner of political success. A failed governor, a failed presidential contender-twice, a failed candidate for U.S. Senate, a failure as Mayor of Oakland, a total unknown as California Attorney General and lastly, a trickster that used lies and deception to gain momentum in what he knows to be a State of non-thinkers that will drink the political correct Kool-Aid his sort serves morning, noon and night. The end result has been of once again, Californians have lost the opportunity to gain ground in growth potential. It has mired the wheels of progress in the abundance of bull excrement these politicians dish out on a regular basis. On the other hand, there is hope for a better tomorrow if only reach down into the gut region and learn once again to think freely and independently. We can no longer afford the sheep mentality that has brought California to the abyss. We need to reach down and grab the gear lever, put it in reverse and make the necessary changes to make California a viable place to call home again…

Start by forcing the legislature to become a part-time legislature. Like Texas, where they meet when important business is necessary. It saves money and it helps the citizens. Our legislature and governor sit in heavy padded beautiful leather chairs thinking of nothing but stupidity; and this has to stop…  Dare to make a change…!!!
