YOUR ONE MINUTE NEWS DIGEST

By Don Rae

 

  • The usual idiots in the State legislature are putting together a plan to change our freeway into toll roads. The brain-dead fools want to impose a Congestion Tax where drivers are charged a fee for every mile they drive on freeways. The jerks think that such a fee will punish drivers to make them use public transit instead of driving their cars.
  • Why is it that the more money the schools get, the worse the schools become?
  • Isn’t Berkeley teaching its students anything about economics and reality? The student government there adopted a resolution endorsing “the intent and purpose of the Green New Deal.”
  • The intelligent public is sick and tired of the Democrats’ hissy fits over the 2016 election. Knock it off. There are real problems to solve. Hillary isn’t going to be president unless there is a bloody coup. Is that part of the Democrats’ platform?
  • California is unfortunately the residence of one of the sickest members of Congress, Maxine Waters.  Now she is claiming that “forcing” immigrants to speak English is racist.  Since she speaks only English, is she calling herself a racist?  She definitely needs medical help.
  • Newsom, who is becoming worse than Moonbeam, wants, by 2021-22, to give six months leave of absence with pay to care for a seriously ill family member or a newborn or adopted baby. How does he expect to pay for this? Why a tax, of course. The bottom line is that all of us will pay for this legislated vacation. Like the idea? Oh, and who will pay for the temporary worker to cover the work during the six month absence?
  • AOC says cauliflower is racist because it is white. Can’t New Yorkers get rid of this idiot?
  • Interesting comparison. The government has built some 3000 miles of “sound walls” at a cost of $6 billion to protect nearby homes from traffic noise. But the Democrats won’t allocate money for a border wall?
  • Germany’s government is telling Jews not to wear traditional headwear because of growing anti-Semitism. Hopefully Germany isn’t starting down that path again.
  • Swalwell is a fixture on television whenever the station needs an ignorant talking head. He should go back to his birthplace in Iowa and stick his head in the sand.
  • Why hasn’t our Congressman Garamendi started the process to allow military spouses to use their out-of-state credentials to practice their occupations locally? He has both Travis AFB and Beale AFB in his distinct.
  • The Feds are going to cancel $929 million in funding for California’s high-speed rail program after rejecting an appeal by the state. Why? Because the state has failed to comply with the terms of agreement by making reasonable progress on the high speed rail project and has obtained absolutely no private equity in the project, as was required. Think of all the disruption around Fresno due to the State’s abject failure. Typical government project.
  • Sen. Kamala Harris said that if elected president she would clear the way for people convicted of dealing drugs to get jobs in the legal marijuana industry. Harris said it was "ironic" that former drug dealers with felony convictions are sometimes barred from marijuana jobs. Anyone check her education credentials?
  • In order to promote diversity, Wake Forest University sent out this invitation: “Dear faculty and staff colleagues, this is a reminder about our upcoming listening sessions on inclusion that I am holding for faculty and staff of color over the next several weeks.” Just another sick example of college faculty intelligence. Support diversity but exclude Whites.
  • California has decided that a new 1 percent tax on restaurant goers will help in the fight against climate change. The money is supposed to go to reduce agricultural climate change emissions. This initiative comes from the California Air Resources Board, the California Department of Food and Agriculture, and a Bay Area non-profit.
  • Now the Left is going after another proven, cheap and safe source of energy, hydropower—our dams. California law specifies what acceptable non-fossil fuel alternatives are allowed. These include windmills, solar panels and geothermal wells. But the bone-heads in Sacramento, for their own selfish reasons, did not include two power sources that are both free of greenhouse gases and renewable: large hydroelectric dams and nuclear plants. Instead, they are tearing down dams and closing nuclear facilities. If the legislators were any stupider, they couldn’t tie their shoe laces. Maybe that is why they have switched to Velcro fasteners.
  • Yet another company, this time in hi-tech, is leaving California.  While it affects only 150 workers, the future of this industry could be in the tens of thousands.
  • We keep on losing businesses to other states. Virgin Galactic is the latest outfit to bail as it plans to move its spaceline staff and space vehicles from Mojave Air & Space Port to New Mexico starting immediately. California losses a growing high tech concern out of the Mojave, which needs the work. Why? High taxes, high cost of living, failed schools and a push for windmills and solar panels – none of which work as advertised.
  • Garamendi has added his name to 123 Democratic congressmen to co-sponsor H.R. 1884, the Protecting Pre-Existing Conditions & Making Health Care More Affordable Act. This legislation claims to lower premiums, strengthen protections for people with pre-existing conditions, and prevent the sale of junk health insurance plans. Wasn’t that what they said about Obamacare, which is a train wreck? The last thing America needs is another “your premiums will go down $2500 annually per family.”
  • What kind of bureaucracy do we have? Millions of American families are waiting for Section 8 housing but the Congress wants to give illegal invaders first choice? Illegal invaders to the front of the line? What has happened to this country?
  • And when Presidential hopefuls start talking stupidity, there is no doubt that Washington is a sewer. Gillibrand wants illegal invaders to get social security benefits. Why doesn’t she just offer them her house and be done with it? Oh, of course she would offer them our houses, not hers.
