Yes! Wading through FAKE NEWS is very tough. It takes time, work and perseverance. But the reward is great and knowing that you found REAL NEWS, is a very personal prize. The below, appeared in the Wall Street Journal on Friday, November 23, 2018.
If necessary, I apologize for marking it up, but the last paragraph is definitely the best…and a REAL NEWS find here.
by Shelley Hanson—I am SO sick and tired of hearing how the grass is drier and there’s more of it because of the drought (in California). The reason there is more grass and weeds in open country is because we had a lot of rain a winter ago. Grass doesn’t get drier. Once it’s dry, it’s dry.
And the Mendocino Complex cannot be the largest fire in California history. Recorded history, yes. As far as I know there isn’t anyone alive today that was alive when the earth was created. Words matter.
California is a mess because it’s citizens have allowed environmental extremists to dictate laws and living conditions. Accidents happen and people feel they aren’t responsible for their own actions or property. If PG&E isn’t allowed to clear growth around their lines, who’s really at fault?
Homeowners can stipulate they don’t want clearing. How foolish is that? But take heart, it’s all because of climate change and drier grass. But for the record, there is climate change-the climate is different every day. One day it’s 100 degrees and the next it’s 95 degrees. Buy your carbon credits because that will solve everything.
…No matter how hard we try…we just cannot do any better than Maxine does for herself! Just wondering if she really does have a death wish??? Thanks again CNN…for getting this political idiot to say these things so that the whole world sees what a moron she really is!
There is no “McConnell Rule.” There is, however, the “Biden Rule,” which was established by then-Senator Joe Biden when he was chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Biden said it was improper to confirm a Supreme Court nominee during a presidential election year and set the precedent that we follow today. I agree with that precedent. The Biden Rule doesn’t apply this year (2018) because we aren’t in a presidential election year.
Just a few minutes ago about 10:00 a.m., I received this announcement from some brave anonymous “face” at Face Book…
I was trying to post a petition to remove the lovely Maxine Waters (CA.) from office and have now been stopped from posting on ANY GROUP!!! Folks…THIS is CENSORSHIP at it’s fines and right here under in the U.S.A!
It has now been more than 30 minutes since I have requested a reason for the block…but no response…they are probably pretty busy blocking millions of conservative pages! This just may be fodder for a law suit!
…John Takeuchi has some good points on ballot measures for the CA. June primary election and I would like to share a note with viewers…terminology for “fixing our streets and roads” has been publically corrected to say “Transportation Projects“…another phony phrase for taking taxpayers dollars for the “Bullet Train to Nowhere”!!! Thanks for letting us share your words John…
California is in deep “stuff”…make that VERY deep stuff! And the “stuff” is the 2018 election. And more importantly, the 2018 California Primary election set for Tuesday, June 12th.
Some background is needed here. In 2010, California voters passed Proposition 10, The Top Two Primaries Amendment. As a trivia note, the vote was 53.75% for and 46.27% against. Proposition 10 essentially says (and you can read it exactly below) that only the TOP TWO VOTE GETTERS only will be placed on the official election ballot on November 13, 2018.
So…if you need it explained further, should two Democrats get the most votes, NO REPUBLICAN will appear on the November ballot. Now, do you ever wonder why Governor Moonbeam pushed the state legislature to pass the Motor Voter law. And by the way, I have yet to find any provision for U.S. Citizenship verification. All that is needed is for the applicant to check a box indicating they want to register to vote.
Here is what the Public Policy Institue of California concludes about the new Motor Voter law. (http://www.ppic.org/publication/what-to-expect-from-californias-new-motor-voter-law/). Oh and CA.’s Motor Voter Law (the law known as AB60 took effect on January 2, 2015) was a law passed only by the CA. legislature. California citizens did NOT get an opportunity to vote on this law.
My conclusion: California voters desperately need a high profile candidate for Governor. So far, no one has risen to the top. We suggest Michele Bachmann from Minnesota be convinced to move to California and to run for Governor!
