    I just saw that Gruesome Newsome is having to revise the State of California budget due to a dramatic loss in tax revenues. Is this because many productive, tax paying people are leaving the state? As the producers leave and the "receivers" remain to enjoy the weather, the balance will continue to tip the wrong direction.

    I was reminded of that bumper sticker that used to be popular: "Welcome to California. Now go home." :D

    Our corrupted Federal government has got his back. Maybe a Light Rail infrastructure project with no audits and no accountability. It's the DNC version of a Hunter painting.

    It'll be easy. They did it for Xi's visit and it looked great for a bit.

    That’s pretty much what the residents of other states have been saying about Californians.
    Instead of leaving their failing state baggage where it only hurts Californians, they carry a lot of it with them when they pick up residency in other states.

    Yeah, we see a lot of it here.

    Califokies arrive real-estate cash rich, tipping developers to favor high-profit McMansion developments and high-ticket condos and apartments. Locals get squeezed as out demands for services ramp up and property taxes rise accordingly. We have so many roads closed now, torn up to put in larger utility works and then widen them for the increased traffic since the Cokies tend to arrive as a 3 or 4 car household.

    Sacramento City Attorney Threatens Target it Will Face Fines for Reporting Retail Theft ‘Nuisance Calls’

    The Sacramento City Attorney’s Office has issued a warning to gigantic national retailer Target that it will face fines for reporting so many retail theft incidences. This is the same City Attorney, Susana Alcala Wood, who rather than working to improve the degraded quality of life of Sacramento residents and taxpayers, asked a Superior Court to dismiss the Sacramento DA’s lawsuit against the City of Sacramento for failing to abate the homeless crisis in the Capitol city by refusing to enforce existing laws.

    The article pointed out that Target likely pays among the highest property taxes of any retailer in the City of Sacramento...not that facts matter

    Time for a little blackmail perhaps?
    Target threatens to close the doors and blames the city attorney.
    Target could even get a lransactivist flamer to represent them at a news conference.

    I think that businesses were getting threats from the state of California from closing stores without giving residents "sufficient notice," whatever that is.

    Orion and Meade have both closed their businesses, run out by big government. I found this out because I'm into Astronomy, and bought both my telescopes from these companies.

    I'll stand with anyone against the evil in this country, and the world while I'm at it. That doesn't mean I'll stand with anyone who doesn't know pure evil when they see it.

    The biggest problem we have in the US is people won't truly stand together and fight the enemy that is alive and well in America.

    It is interesting that many are turning back to God during these times.
