Don't often agree with Cruz but -

It does seem that there is actually a limit that virtue signaling billionaires will pay for lip service to the group think when it bites the hand that feeds it. Bad socialists!

Typical Boardman. One windmill after another to tilt at. California is better than North Platte, so there! Conservatives are annoyed? Really? Can he name any? I'm not annoyed, just dismayed. California is coming apart at the seams but Boardman lives in the whiter area, so he's OK. Not in those vibrant, thriving areas where you have to step around bodies, human waste and used needles.
He claims for every middle class family moving out, there's a one percenter moving in.
Great. Tax the bejeebers out of those folks.
California has a great coastline, mostly fabulous weather and lots of great scenery. Other than that, it's all downhill. The state govt is not leaning left, it is charging left. There are no facts I could recite to Boardman to change his mind. He's happy - ergo - California is wonderful.

I recall years ago when my sister lived in Hawaii. I went and stayed at a condo she had and outside were all these homeless bums up and down the streets. She said Hawaii offered food and money if you set foot on the island. So a lot of one-way tickets. Anyway, it started looking like SF does now. The powers that be decided NO MORE> And they dried up the stimulants. People were traveling there because the weather was always good. It was that and the free stuff. So they started sending the bums back to California.

I bet that North Platte is just fine, although the weather might be a pain.

Even money that Mr. Boardman lives in one of the local Whiteopias like Lake Wildwood or LOP. It isn't like he's going to move to Salinas or Richmond anytime soon.

Boardman is a old white cracker behind the gates of white suburbia. LOL!

Cali grown!

A giant opium poppy field in Moss Landing was found and destroyed by Monterey County Sheriff's deputies, investigators said Monday.
Sheriff's deputies discovered the sprawling field of flowers along the 500 block of Dolan Road last week.
"They were able to confirm that the field was in fact Papaver Somniferum -- commonly known as opium poppies," the Sheriff's Office said.
Over the weekend, a team eradicated one acre of 27,000 growing plants, and destroyed 16,500 harvested plants.

re: DonB@1:12PM

The relevant numbers:

"The field contained 27,000 plants and an additional 16,500 poppies that had already been harvested, according to officials. All of those plants together could make about 13 pounds of raw opium, which could then be converted to 1.5 pounds of heroin, the Sheriff's Office said."

That seems like a lot of work. I wonder people might go about harvesting it in a commercial sense in the First World as opposed to a bunch of people with scoring gizmos.

LOS ANGELES
The number of cases of sexually transmitted diseases in California reached a record high last year and officials are particularly concerned by a spike in stillbirths due to congenital syphilis, state health authorities said Monday.
More than 300,000 cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis were reported in 2017, a 45 percent increase from five years ago, according to data released by the California Department of Public Health.

DB at 3:05 - Another feather in California's cap! Makes Boardman proud, I'll bet!

Bad super majority legislators!

But the bill originally fell short that year amid opposition from oncologists, Catholic hospitals, clergy and disability rights groups, who argued that the policy was immoral and could have a detrimental impact on the availability of care for the state's most vulnerable patients.
After failing in the regular legislative session, lawmakers successfully revived the assisted death proposal in a special session called by Brown to find a source of funding for public health programs.
Larson said his clients are most concerned about a lack of protections in the law, including an inadequate definition of terminal illness and a provision exempting doctors who prescribe the lethal drugs from liability. But he said they also challenged the manner in which the law was passed, an argument the judge sided with on Tuesday.
"That special session was called to address funding shortages caused by Medi-Cal," Larson said. "It was not called to address the issue of assisted suicide."

DB at 5:03 - welcome to socialized medicine! Best way to cut costs is just killing off the old feeble folk. Terminal? We're all terminal. I always wondered at folks fighting lethal injections for convicted murderers as 'inhumane' but the same drugs are a 'blessing' for the old folks that want to die. California is lagging behind Oregon in being able to kill innocent people. Doctors' mistakes are already killing thousands - now they might get to do in even more folk with the prescription pad. C'mon California - let's go! Between abortions and euthanasia you can be number one in killing humans!

Oh, Mr. Boardman just is tweaking our noses, saying we are a bunch of naysayers. The gloom lot. Cranky old men.
Look, things are going great! It’s his worldview. Has rental income coming in from The Hypodermic City by the Bay, lives in a fine white bread gated community, and is loving life, the weather, and he don’t have to punch that timecard no more. Only bitch he has is driving those teeth chattering highways and byways.

To be fair, the Areospace Industry grew LA and greatly helped that area, not to mention the State, at one time. Lockheed, Hughes, and a slew of others. During the Depression, the military bases keep Sacramento afloat when other cities and places “out there” collapsed. The 2nd gold rush in the 30’s kept our neck in the woods going.

Now, Silicon Valley is carrying the Golden State. For every worker/family that makes 50K a year that moves out, a 1%er moves in? My, that sounds like a rosy picture and paints a ratherunsympathetic to a blue collar who has a mortgage, rattling g car, and uses milk crates for furniture with one I. The oven. Guess Boardman forgot where he came from. Smell the bloom on all those roses. Morning in California.

Ok, here’s a bone. Yes, CA has 1/3 of the nation's welfare receiptants, probably a quarter of all the homeless folks in the entire nation and I would not be surprised if we had 40% of all the crazies, BUT......sunshine, beaches, mountains, and movie stars. California is the place to be.....

I ain’t moving to Nebraska either. Now, if I was from Nebraska, I would move to a warmer climate...like Truckee.

Bill Tozer

Well, California is the place to be.

Was I the only one who saw an article in the union a few days ago that said the number of raw votes so far was 3%, something like 2200 votes. Did Diaz tell that to the union?
What I know about the numbers is the votes so far as of Friday was in the neighborhood of 36,000.
