CA: Some GOP Legislators put Taxes Back on the Table

    It finally happened, as it usually does, state Democrat legislators seem to have been able to reach a few “reasonable” Republicans and get them to agree to tax increases under “certain conditions”.

    Farewell to the Chief-“Mission Accomplished”

    There’s a picture wall at all military units, with the chain of command from the unit’s Commanding Officer all the way to the Commander in Chief. In between the two are the top military and civilian leaders, and the pictures change as commands and appointments change.

    I.T. Deceased Local GOP

    And yet they wonder; why is Ventura County, California going blue? I last wrote about this here, and after that I thought I’d wait a bit and see if maybe local GOP leaders were just getting over the holidays.
