Mercatus ranks the states fiscal conditions again......todays big winner Connecticut coming in at #50! In celebration they've decided to change the state motto to: "Connecticut......at least we're not Puerto Rico!


And of course at #44 sunny California wins "Miss Congeniality" again.


Hey, who isn't glad that Obamacare is faring so well.......


George Rebane

Obamacare has been an unmitigated disaster for the healthcare industry and our nation. Its harm will grow without bound the longer it is allowed to stay on the books. The only remarkable thing about Obamacare is how the government and the lamestream have coordinated their efforts to keep its unfolding truth from the general public. A good fraction of the country believes that Obamacare has actually taken a big step to improving healthcare in America. In reality Obamacare is a most corrupt program riddled with secret exceptions and subsidies to keep the thing from The suppressed daily news tells a far different story.

Yeah....still waiting for Steves vaunted "bending of the cost curve" to kick in.

Should see that any day now......

Bill Tozer

This goes not suprise me. The Party of Good are full of brain dead pieces of grunt. Hey liberals you ARE that stupid. Disgusting. Stupid, stupid, stupid. Stupid is as stupid does.

On a brighter note, this man is fun to follow. Safe to say that there is no apology tour scheduled on his itinerary.
"Just because you're a journalist you are not exempted from assassination, if you're a son of a bitch," Duterte said when asked how he would address the problem of media killings.....
Duterte, who won last month's elections in a landslide after pledging to kill tens of thousands of criminals, told reporters on Tuesday there was justification for killing journalists who took bribes or engage In corruption.


Side note: some journalist named Jun Pala was murdered. Here is El Presidente's poetic response about Jun.
"The example here is Pala. I do not want to diminish his memory but he was a rotten son of a bitch. He deserved it."
Poor Jun.

Bill Tozer

Boy, them Bernie Bros have better stuff. Clink blank spot for video to appear.


George Rebane

Fish 913am - the cost curve has already been bent, but very quietly and the wrong way unfortunately.

George Boardman

Re Tozer's 9:18 a.m.:

Too bad he isn't a natural born American. He'd be a perfect running mate for Trump.

Bill Tozer

Mr. Boardman. Yep, that guy is a natural born something. No worries, Mr. Boardman. If you took bribes, I forgive you. If you were involved in corruption, you have been granted a reprieve. You may be many things, but you are not a rotten SOB. Now, strike the word rotten and.....and.....well, go in peace.

Bill Tozer

Concerning Obamacare:
I remember well debating the costs of Obamacare under much ridicule and derision. I pointed out that the economy would have to grow at 4% to even break even at best and that ain't gonna happen. Oh, the laughing started with experts being quoted forecasting 4-6% and it would reduce the debt to boot. That was on the Union blog, but the writing style and arrogance is reminiscent of one of our lefty posters.
If I recall even semi-accurately, a President of the US said it would not cost the taxpayers one cent. No even one thin dime, one tenth of a dollar. Hurry, hurry, hurry. Step right on up and see The Greatest Show on Earth.
Later I bought a humble abode. It was finalized in mi-Dec. The bank told me it was a good thing the papers were signed before the end of the year, otherwise there was an Obamacare tax on real estate transactions starting in Jan the following year.
Well, if you buy a house today, the Obamacare Tax will cost you a couple of coins more than one red cent.
My personal physician in Auburn told last visit he took Obamacare and it almost broke him. His voice rose louder than than usual. Louder than the time he screamed at me "Do you want to die?, do you want to die?" during his non-smoking lecture. Hmmm. What got into him? All I asked was his take on Obamacare. Then he added he longer takes Medicaid (MediCal) either. Now he has National Review type mags in his office. He must be going through the change or something. He was such a believer in Obamacare for his suffering patients just 6 years ago. Puzzling.
All in all, I would settle for the economy growing at a meager 3.6%.


Thanks President Hope n Change!

"Thanks to Obamacare, it is frequently better for a middle class family to get no raise than even a decent sized raise."

and of course.....the money shot.

"Thanks to Obamacare, it is better for the average childless couple in California to make $63,000 than $72,000. Things are really horrendous if someone makes $64,000.

Taking Obamacare, federal, and state taxes into consideration, a couple that makes $63,000 annually takes home $48,770. A couple that makes $64,000 takes home $42,360!

Varones calculates the marginal tax rate of that extra $1,000 in income to be 741%."


George Rebane

A note from a correspondent again underlines that California is a mecca for fraudulent voting. The dimensions of our state’s fraud are many. Most recently even lamestream outlets like CBS report that “California is the only state that does not comply with the Help America Vote Act of 2002, something the Obama administration has basically ignored.” Why is it only the Left that ignores and/or supports voter fraud, often under the guise of championing ‘voting rights’? Here’s more –

Todd Juvinall

People from the Ridge came down yo NC and used a friends address to vote in the primary. Then register in their other place for the November election. Was kind of working until I came along.

Bill Tozer

Ah, the Left says voter fraud is not a problem. I believe them. The Party of the Good Caring People would never lie to us. Sign up for a drivers' license, get a ballot in the mail. Now, whatz wrong with dat?
That is why California so very special. We forge ahead into the future with or without other states, if necessary. Yes, being a trailblazer can be lonely.

Hey, it finally dawned on some why this guy seems so familiar. Hillary really needs better advisors. She has 703 full time staff, Trump has 70. With 10 times the lawyers and consultants and paid staff than Trump, one would think somebody of the 703 would help her present her image in a more favorable light.


George Rebane

Administrivia - OK boys and girls, I'm tired of having to scroll multiple pages to find the latest comment under a post. So I've reversed the order in which they will be displayed - the most recent comment will be on top, and then they will age as they descend. All this is due to the deranged popularity of our sandboxes which rapidly develop long comment streams consisting of multiple topic threads. Hope you all will agree that this may be an improvement.


Posted by: George Rebane | 01 June 2016 at 03:20 PM

It is an improvement....it just made me dizzy at first as there was no warning!

So we still need to scroll to the bottom to comment?

Thought for the day:

MAYBE OBAMA HAS SEEMED SO BUMBLING IN FOREIGN AFFAIRS BECAUSE OUR ENEMIES KNEW OUR PLANS BEFORE HE DID: How EmailGate Weakened America’s National Security: It’s safe to say that Moscow, Beijing and Tehran know a lot more about Hillary Clinton than the American public does.


George Rebane

Here is a litmus test -

If you ever wondered which side of the fence you sit on, this is a great test!

If a conservetarian doesn't like guns, he doesn't buy one.
If a liberal doesn't like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.

If a conservetarian is a vegetarian, he doesn't eat meat.
If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.

If a conservetarian is homosexual, he quietly leads his life.
If a liberal is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.

If a conservetarian is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation.
If a liberal is down-and-out he wonders who is going to take care of him.

If a conservetarian doesn't like a talk show host, he switches channels.
A liberal demands that those they don't like be shut down.

If a conservetarian is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church.
A liberal non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced.

If a conservetarian decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it.
If a liberal decides he needs health care, he demands that the rest of us pay for his.

Bill Tozer

Go figure. Maybe when the boys came out to play, little socialists ran away. Vroom, vroom.



Dr. R@709pm - Hey, I am a Conservatarian! Good to know!


I like seeing the newest post at the top of the page.


...in case you were wondering why the mainstream media said next to nothing about this shooting except during the frantic initial phase.

"Los Angeles police have identified the gunman as former doctoral student Mainak Sarkar.

Not a white guy......move along....nothing to see here!


Now as you all well know there's been no stronger Hillary Clinton supporter than me (so you can just suck it Tozer....trying to come between me and "my gal"). Sure I haven't contributed to her campaign and I am perfectly content to point out her myriad flaws. That said, I still think America deserves Hillary Clinton. So I was disappointed this morning to find another less than flattering story in the Bee about how carefully scripted and how delicately handled the would be leader of the not so free world is.

"Coddled" dare I say!

"Emails: Clinton staff reviewed remarks, questions for events"

What's a supporter to do?!



Anti-marijuana activist Bessee references “bovine scatology” in our local newspaper

Posted on June 1, 2016 by jeffpelline

You can’t make this stuff up! The Union’s Op-Ed page includes commentary from Measure W’s self-appointed spokesman Don Bessee referring to “bovine scatology” as he seeks to inform and educate the rest of us — in the first sentence no less.

Our community has become a magnet for people like Don.

How can we ever hope to recruit college-educated millennials? Or just plain college-educated people? LOL.

I wonder what Dr. Phil (jeffys go to authority on matters mental health related) would say about his oft repeated and to the untrained eye unhealthy obsession with "millennials"?

Looking at him I don't think it's sexual....surely even he can't be that deluded.

The only other possibility, horrifying though it may be......CANNIBALISM.

You guys haven't had a spate of college educated 20 somethings go missing recently?


I recall my teacher in 3rd grade being this hardcore......Mrs. Wong.......the entire school lived in fear of her!

"REPORT: Prof. ordered students to ignore lockdown and take exams..."

Lord I miss that woman!!


Bill Tozer

Fish @ 2 out of last 3.

First, cannibalism is not to be passed around lightly. They done ate up two of my people's finest and bravest millennials up at Truckee Indian Pass above Truckee Lake. White people like to eat until they become very fat which means no millennials, no supper for you. Big rumbly in the tummy means hungry Little Big Man. Incoming!

Now let us reason together Mr. Fish. I had a good thing going with Mr. Anderson until you showed one day and stole him away from me. I may suck, but you are a hussy..
So, after that, you head straight to My Gal. Everybody knows she is my gal. Then you wormed your way in by saying (months later) "our gal". I almost choked on that word "our". Now I get leftovers according to you? You are a very sneaky bad person, Mr. Fish. Shame, shame, shame.
I am too upset to continue typing. Best I go out and chop wood. I am handy with the throwing ax....opppps, I have no idea where that came from. She's My Gal. Mine. Here, I will let My Gal speak for herself on such matters.


Oh William that picture brightened my day! Bless you sir!

And on the following charge....

but you are a hussy..

Guilty as charged!


Dr.R@709pm - I am not sure I agree with the term 'liberal' being used to describe attributes contrary to the 'conservatarian' (Fusionist?) principles outlined in this litmus test.
My first inclination would be to call 'liberals' with the points of view described in the litmus test as self-righteous, over-controlling, busybodies who need to mind their own business!
The litmus test conservatarian sounds like a live and let live kind of guy.
The litmus test liberal is trying to come up with a defense for all the a-holes who take advantage of others for their own gain without regard to the long term damage resulting from their own callousness or short-term thinking.

Cause -effect - liberal legislation solution
Lead water pipes - poisons people - outlaw lead water pipe (EPA)
Guns - kill people - outlaw guns (ATF)
Meat - production contaminates environment, uses much water, crops - (RWQCB, EPA, FDA, USDA)

MMJ/RMJ cultivation - production contaminates environment, uses much water - Measure W mindset, RWQCB, A(MJ)TF, FDA, USDA etc.

AirBnB - allows out-of-town visitors to live in R-1 zones for a couple of nights, displaces low income local employees, guests park cars on street - Measure Y mindset

What do the above examples have in common? Some people/corporations operating on short-term greed motive with ignorance or carelessness or disregard for their neighbors. Should overarching regulations be enacted to legislate the behavior of a few existing or potential a-holes?

How much (insert pet issue here) does a conservatarian put up with before they are willing to outlaw or enact legislation (and how extreme should the legislation be) in an attempt to remedy a given ‘problem’?


Oh....almost forgot.....I don't believe you are a drinker William but for my fellow beer aficionados I bring a warning!

Beware Samuel Adams - Rebel Grapefruit IPA....from what I gather it was given this name not because it was in any way descriptive but because the name Tastes like Satans Penis was already taken!

Gotta go rinse my mouth out with unleaded!


Remember the Good old Days when only white guys could be racist.........

"Facebook 'safe space' shuttered after anti-white/male statements leak"

Yeah...you've come a long way baby!


George Rebane

BradC 953am - Good repartee. The simplistic litmus test in my 709pm only highlights the automatic tendency of the Left to IMMEDIATELY seek solutions that involve a more comprehensive involvement of government in our lives. As Garrett Hardin pointed out, there are ways government can respond, without increasing its reach and grasp, that draws out individual/local behaviors to solve problems. And, of course, there is the always the dictum for government to 'do nothing, sooner' from Ludwig von Mises. The Hardin and Mises approaches depart from what today has polarized into those of the hard Left collected under labels like 'liberal', 'progressive', 'socialist', ... and other descriptors of the collectivist persuasion.

Dear Climate Skeptics Heads Up:

The first amendment is now dead in California: New California bill would allow prosecution of climate-change skeptics

A landmark California bill gaining steam would make it illegal to engage in climate-change dissent, clearing the way for lawsuits against fossil-fuel companies, think-tanks and others that have “deceived or misled the public on the risks of climate change.”

The first-of-its-kind legislation — Senate Bill 1161, or the California Climate Science Truth and Accountability Act of 2016 — is scheduled for floor action Thursday after clearing Senate committees in April and May.

The measure would allow state and local prosecutors to pursue claims against climate-change skepticism as a violation of the state’s Unfair Competition Law [UCL], as well as extend the four-year statute of limitations for such claims retroactively to Jan. 1, 2021.

“This bill explicitly authorizes district attorneys and the Attorney General to pursue UCL claims alleging that a business or organization has directly or indirectly engaged in unfair competition with respect to scientific evidence regarding the existence, extent, or current or future impacts of anthropogenic induced climate change,” says the state Senate Rules Committee’s floor analysis.

More information here: https://wattsupwiththat.com/2016/06/02/the-first-amendment-is-now-dead-in-california-new-california-bill-would-allow-prosecution-of-climate-change-skeptics/

This is mind blowing, they are suspending the statute of limitations with this language:

(a) (1) Notwithstanding Section 17208 of the Business and Professions Code, an action pursuant to Chapter 5 (commencing with Section 17200) of Part 2 of Division 7 of the Business and Professions Code against a corporation, firm, partnership, joint stock company, association, or other organization of persons that has directly or indirectly engaged in unfair competition, as defined in Section 17200 of the Business and Professions Code, with respect to scientific evidence regarding the existence, extent, or current or future impacts of anthropogenic-induced climate change that would otherwise be barred as of January 1, 2017, solely because the statute of limitation has or had expired, is revived and, in that case, the action may be commenced within four years of January 1, 2017. Nothing in this subdivision shall be construed to alter the applicable limitation period of an action that is not time barred as of January 1, 2017.

Question: Will skeptical global warming blogs that allow advertising be threatened? Could Watts Up With That, the most read skeptical climate change blog be a target, because it is unfair to anthropogenic global warmer bloggers who do not have any readers? How about this blog?

Bill Tozer

Holy Smokes, a cat fight. Well, at least they can leave as good friends another time.

"In a post this morning, Arno uploaded a photo of a sweater-clad Fred Rogers with the caption, “Mister Rogers didn’t adequately prepare me for the people in my neighborhood."

Well, with a mug like that, I would wear a burka also. Almost as upsetting as Mr. Steele's 3:02 pm. Ok, The 3:02 pm post is a joke, right? What do you expect from a bunch of people who actually are convinced they evolved from baboons? They have convinced me that they came from chimpanzees or further down the food chain.

I don't have time to read all the comments that have already been posted, so forgive me if this topic has already come up. Chris Matthews casually mentioned that the law firm representing the clients suing Trump University have paid the Clinton's $675,000 in speaking fees. Anyone smell a rat?

George Rebane

RussS 302pm - Throughout its existence RR has tracked our path from liberty to autocracy, and soon to outright tyranny. The question people should ask at this stage of our descent is whether a non-violent return to our former freedoms is even possible. The socialist/communists have already answered that question in their relentless drive to abrogate the Second Amendment; they believe that sooner or later they will have to face every gun they leave in the hands of law abiding Americans.

PatriciaS 413pm - Rat city!


Yer Patricia. Vermin! Just like any other school. "no guarantee". Buyer beware!
there is no million bucks upon graduation. I spent plenty of time and money retraining to be a construction estimator. Even pounded the streets shopping my diploma, Not one damned bite. Hell.. they even said they had job placement. " here is the want ads in the Sac. Bee." (that's your idea of job placement???) Now how come I didn't think of suing?
I guess the owners weren't running for public office.

Update: California Senate shelves bill enabling lawsuits against climate “deniers” — for now

By Walter Olson

The California Senate has shelved, at least for now, a bill that would lay the groundwork for a campaign of lawsuits against so-called climate deniers. The California Climate Science Truth and Accountability Act of 2016 (Senate Bill 1161), which had passed two committee hurdles, would retrospectively lift what is now a four-year statute of limitations so as to allow unlimited lawsuits under the state’s notoriously pro-plaintiff Unfair Competition Law, or s. 17200, over advocacy related to climate change. While the deadline has now passed for the bill to be enacted on its own under ordinary legislative procedure, it could still pass this year under “gut-and-amend” procedures or a rules waiver.

Don Bessee

So is anyone getting a pool together on what the vote percentages will be on Measure W?

George Rebane

DonB 1133am - Good invite Mr Bessee. I encourage readers to submit their estimates on the pro-W vote percentage using the MAB approach taught here. My own submission - [48%, 53%, 50.5%, 0.4]. Jo Ann's is [48%, 55%, 51.5%, 0.6]. Note that both of us (with our lower limits less that 50%) believe there is a chance that W will fail. Here's the MAB discussion.


Russ Steele

George 12:02PM

[ 46%, 51%, 49.5%, 0.6]

It is a voter turnout issue. Too many inactive Republican voters.

George Rebane

RussS 102pm - Interesting prognostication Russ. Your pessimism about Republican turnout explains why you are predicting that W will pass with probability 0.160, or about 1 out of 6. While Jo Ann and I are much more optimistic, predicting passage at 0.902 and 0.872 respectively. I guess we're more optimistic about the Republican turnout next Tuesday. Our mean percentages for W are 51.5% (Jo Ann) and while I believe that it will squeak by with 50.5% of the vote. You believe W will fail getting only about 48.7% of the vote. I guess the turnout will also depend on what kind of fuss will result from the Hillary/Donald foreign policy exchanges between now and Tuesday. Fun times.

Russ Steele


Look at the Voter Audit Statistics:

Active Dem Voters 23,766
Active Rep Voters 23,087

Inactive Dem 12,995
Inactive Rep 15,211

Democrats are adding active voters fasters than the Republicans in Nevada County. Add in "I am not voting for Trump" crowd, who will not even go to vote, and the Republican turnout starts to get too thin.


I read that the Sheriff has beating the bushes down in Lake of the Pines looking to sway voters there and would expect similar stories coming out of other big subdivisions like Lake Wildwood and Alta Sierra - plenty of targets of opportunity there for a Yes on W vote. But I see many No on W signs in the downtown areas. When Measure S was up for a vote, I was surprised to hear from people I knew that were involved in the MJ trade in one way or another saying they were not going to support Measure S.

I also heard on the street that there some wouldbe No on W voters up here who cannot vote because they are not registered to vote in this county.

Then again, some voters might vote no on W because they don't understand, or are confused why we need a ballot measure if we already have a ban in place.

I will go with W failing with 49.5% of the vote, confidence not that high, considering the S supporter vote turnout which was not that great.


Brad. The dope growers you spoke to that didn't want "S" to pass, probably saw their profit margin taking a big hit.
Plenty of "no on "W" " with "vote for Sanders" down in my branch of the weeds,, all nailed to power poles. Which is frowned upon.

I hear the boobs under the big tit in Sac. have come up with a tax plan if MJ gets legalized. I say,, good luck with that. An all cash business, which doesn't fork over any taxes now, will know how to skirt that taxation.

OK,, it's honesty time. Who wants to hire a dope smoker? Just what job should one be allowed to have? Your auto mechanic? the wood shop with all those spinning blades?
The one doing your books, and taxes? Hell! how bout the one just running the cash register?
Your friendly construction worker???


OK,, Here is a great one for the working "stoned" argument..

The result has been one bloodbath after another, with open wounds until today fostering ISIS, terrorism, and mass refugee flows."

What is clearly obvious though is your blatant crypto-racism...the ongoing denigration of an ethnically mixed neighborhood from your lily white enclave in the sierra foothills. It's okay "jon" I've seen it before, affluent whites zoning and Section 8(ing) minorities away from potentially very valuable urban properties under the guise of getting them into better areas.....and then swooping in to poach the properties in which they used to live....and hey President Chair Warmer just made it federal again.....!

Too bad America beer is foreigner owned. What a hoot!

Bill Tozer

Brad. Yep, Trump is sometimes hard to stomach. Very hard. I just turn off the news (web and radio) and wait for the time to vote for him...or should I say time to vote for the ass kicking machine to throw up a roadblock in the progressive's march toward socialism and continued shredding the Constitution. Said from the start that Trump is merely the right tool for the right job at the right time. Don't even have to like him, although he has many endearing attributes. Libs have nothing to worry about. They will make us just like Europe in due time. Just seeking a roadblock or temporary detour as we have crossed over the tipping point. Is that too much to ask? Just a small pause in the march toward tyranny.
Is it just have others noticed the new buzz word "red hat". Must be another fad. I read about all those hooligans in Aneheim and San Jose jumping on us Trumpamanics leaving a peaceful rally inside to mayhem outside the arenas. Seems the lawbreakers take great pleasure in throwing punches just to steal a red hat. Must be worth a lot of street cred to don a red ball cap. The criminals go to great lengths to steal a red Make Ametica Great Again hat. Odd, I don't see them exert any effort to steal a I'm With Her hat or a Bernie ball cap, do you????
Guess if I was so broke or lazy that I could not afford to buy a Red Hat or was unable to purchase one with my food stamp card, I, too, would be rioting in the streets and stealing a fine red ball cap as well. Boy, this Obama Recovery has made people go off the deep end. All this fighting and attacking and assaults to get one red cap. At least they aren't shooting and killing each other to steal shoes like they did when Air Jordans hit the market.
Ok, how about some mindless pictures. Enough of this one finger typing.

Meanwhile, the dead, bankrupt coal industry leaves a BILLION dollar environmental obligation to the taxpayers. What a shock!
The coal and mineral extraction industry was always such good stewards of the land and American exceptionalism, how can this be?

How's that Animus river clean up coming?


Such chutzpa for a woman of the people.

OUT: “A Good Republican Cloth Coat.”

IN: “Hillary Clinton’s New York primary victory speech in April focused on topics including income inequality, job creation and helping people secure their retirement. It was a clear attempt to position herself as an everywoman. But an everywoman she is not — she gave the speech in a $12,495 Giorgio Armani tweed jacket.”

Once she's elected she's really going to need to learn to tamp down her detractors lest they impede her reign.

Maybe Trump has a point after all in the Trump University Case. From Drudge this morning:

Law Firm and Judge bringing Trump U case both tied to La Raza...
FLASHBACK: Sotomayor said ethnicity 'will make difference in our judging'...
LORD: Race-driven association exactly what's wrong with legal system...

re JonD's 753pm - Never confuse a real liability with an artificial one imposed by a bureaucracy. The cited liability is (progressive) self-inflicted pain.

Holy Smokes, call the Governor! Send out the National Guard and put the scoundrel deep inside the Black Hole of Calcutta.

1:33 p.m. — A caller on the 16400 block of Greenhorn Road reported someone posted a political sign on a nearby power pole; the caller wanted the sign taken down and fingerprinted so the person responsible could be prosecuted.

I know who did it. It was that suspicious Alexander Grahm Bellbiski, the first political power Pole.

Talk about "leaving as good friends" refugee style!

Quote of the day:

Steven Frisch Call Your Office.

Jacobs Engineering plans to move jobs from Pasadena to Texas -- Jacobs Engineering Group, one of the world’s largest engineering companies, is preparing to move employees from its Pasadena headquarters to Dallas, becoming the latest major corporation to relocate significant operations from California to Texas.

Steven told us that companies would like AB-32 and stay in CA, creating green jobs and the economy would be booming. Now we have the one of the largest corporations leaving the state for Texas. I guess Steven did not know what he was saying, living in his liberal dream world.

Where could bessary be tonight?


The kitty krunchies are drying out, here's a fresh dropping:

Yet another line of inquiry is challenging IPCC orthodoxy... a solid European scientist is telegraphing a paper or papers that point to lower temps than the IPCC brand science has been claiming. To see the light of day in the vicinity of August.


CO2 sensitivity as determined by the IPCC has been in the range of 1.5 to 4.5C+ since the scare started back in 1979... that's a long time to show no progress whatsoever in determining the single most important quantity for CO2 driven climate change, or the lack of it.

The hard left following that ol timey climate religion will have as hard a time adjusting to their raison d'etre evaporating as the creationists did with the Scopes trial. Payback is a bitch.
