Potpourri

Washington Post makes an unintentional admission“The Obama administration has turned back pleas for emergency aid from one of the biggest remaining threats to the economy — the state of California.” The state of California is a threat to the national economy? I’ve been saying that for years. The more states copy California, the more horrible the national economy becomes.

Speaking of the land of leftist stupidity, California legislators propose to shutdown state oil industry with crushing tax burden. Apparently, the notion that crushing taxes do not encourage more business has not sunk into the liberals who run the California State Assembly. Apparently, they believe the road to prosperity is paved with generous benefits to state employees and illegal immigrants.

In other news from the party of Clinton, a video has surfaced in which Ohio Democrat Lt. Governor (candidate for senate in 2010) rubs his bare hairy chest to soft music. WARNING: Once you have seen it, you cannot un-see it!

From the “Liberals think you are all retarded” files, Britain invents the “stab-proof” knife. It is designed, supposedly, to prevent its use as a stabbing weapon. (Works fine for slashing, though.) Because it’s not like any criminal would think of anything like filing down the rounded end to make it pointy or anything.

Tell me this doesn’t suck. Because of a clerical error, kids in two California elementary schools have to make 34 days of school. Why? because 34 of their school days were 5 or 10 minutes short of the mandatory 180 minute school day. And because of a retarded state law, they can’t just make up the missed minutes, they have to make up every day that was short. How stupid is that?

    This is truly retarded….as an anesthesiologist who treats trauma, I have taken care of plenty of people that were stabbed with simple table/butter knives that have resulted in near death wounds…people do not kill…guns and knives do in teh wacky wiberal world….

    California is a drain on this country. I was talking with a friend who moved from that great state. When he filed his state taxes he received an IOU. I was like, Whoa!

  3. Don’t bring a stab-proof knife to a gun fight…

    I’m from California and have lived here all my life. You don’t know the half of it.

    The problem is that so much of our population is concentrated in the big cities along the coast. Pretty much the rest of the state is as red as Montana. Trouble is, there are enough people in the “blue” areas to outweigh what the rest of us think in statewide elections, who we send to the House (only a handful of rep’s from the red areas), who we send to the Senate (both our Senators are extremely liberal)…not to mention the total death-grip the Left has on our state government. The GOP in this state can’t seem to get anything done, not that I want people like Ah-nuld speaking for me anyway.

    I never take it personally when I hear people in other states talk trash about California. I always assume they’re referring to the garbage down in San Francisco & LA, and I haven’t been wrong yet.

    I hear now and then from inside these borders, that the rest of the US “needs” us because of our technological sector, tourism industry, and agricultural output. I don’t know if any of that is true or not.
