Why Would California Re-Elect Jerry Brown?
Many’s the time I asked that of myself during his first two terms. We’re still living under the aftermath of goofy policies set in place by our boy Jerry. Aside from an early alliance with the public service unions and their constant demands for more for less, our then-Governor Brown cozied up to the environmentalists and curtailed water storage and dam building, guaranteeing the almost | Read More »
A State Of Rebellion…
…exists in America today, and I don’t think either side of the political spectrum has really registered it yet. Oh, they’re giving plenty of lip service… until they think we’re no longer paying attention, as in the past. The exception would, of course, be those who started the startling march of events that just culminated in the largest paradigm shift in modern American political history. | Read More »
Meg, Use The Force.
Methinks the lady may be listening to her ‘political advisers’ and not the little voice within… the same skills she used in building eBay to the internet star that it is. Californians understood and agreed when she told us how important small business and creative start-ups are to the growth of the state and the nation, and how runaway taxation and regulation is forcing businesses | Read More »
Mea Culpa (Sort Of).
My article of Monday the 18th of October created a bit of a tempest. I’ve never had an article pulled on a Conservative site before. I’ve been tossed off of a couple of hard lefty sites, but that’s usually just funny. I used to do a daily column on a really hard lefty site… I was astounded that they would publish my Conservative views. We | Read More »

Polls And Surveys.
The usual pre-election flurry of facts, figures, statistics and predictions are being hurled at us from all directions. From demographic and racial groups’ preferences to the likelihood of hamster owners voting Republican or Democrat… most angles are covered in some way or another. I pity the campaign organizers who have to dissect all this information in order to target the areas and groups where they | Read More »
It’s a little early for Oscar nominations, perhaps, but the performance of Nicandra Diaz Santillan should be worth consideration. More commonly referred to as Nicky Diaz, she was employed as a housekeeper by California gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman. Diaz and Allred A lot of things don’t add up in this case, or rather, they do make sense if you assume the worst in people’s character. | Read More »
Meg Whitman: The Next Arnold In Waiting.
Meg Whitman was on America’s Morning News today. After listening to her talk, I had the distinct impression that what we’re getting is another big government liberal. When queried about the illegal alien subject she danced all over the issue, saying that “Arizona’s anti-illegal alien law was not for California”. It made me wonder if she had ever read California’s statutes, like 634-b of the | Read More »
Lincoln Survives, Barely – Republican Ladies Rule California.
Blanche Lincoln barely survived a challenge by Governor Bill Halter, 52% to 48%, in her bid to win the Arkansas primary. She’s not out of the woods yet by a long shot. She still has to face Republican US Representative John Boozman in November. Actually, with Boozman polling 25 points ahead of Lincoln she has plenty to worry about. Rasmussen has him at +38 points. | Read More »
The Golden State Of Shambles.
My, how time flies when you’re having fun. Ever since the steam-rolling of the health care bill by the Congressional DeMarxists, the rapid growth of the American Conservative movement caught everyone, but especially the DeMarxists, by surprise…to those critics who sagely counseled that the Tea Party phenomenon was but a momentary glitch on the political landscape. They have been proven wrong by several orders of | Read More »
