It’s been said that I am critical of my home state of California….ha, like I am the only one. Ok, here’s the way I see it and feel free to disagree or throw rocks at me, whatever.
I grew up in CA and for my first 40 years I never had a problem with this state, then the liberals started taking over and things started to slip. My list of grievances began right there and it just kept growing and growing. It is not my state that I have problems with, its what the crazy liberals have done to it…that’s my gripe!
Liberals in CA are like vandals, wreaking havoc and destruction over everything they control. Need I point out some of the obvious problems we face? Yes, I think I do, but just for our liberals:
- CA has slipped from #1 in education to around 47th.
We have the highest concentrations of so-called homeless and it’s costing us dearly.
We struggle to save jobs under the yoke of oppressive anti-business regulations, unfair wage regulations and high taxes.
The middle class is hardest hit by the highest taxes in nation and yet we get nothing for it.
CA’s version of criminal reform is to go soft on criminals while ignoring the victims. (we’ve been there before and here we are again)
Our infrastructure is falling apart, our freeways are too crowded and they all show dangerous signs of wear.The State of CA is our largest employer – that’s socialism!
College education is outrageously expensive due to over-paid, top heavy bureaucracy with their lavish benefits.
CA gun laws focus on lawful gun owners – not criminals who use guns to commit crime.
CA endorses sanctuary cities in defiance of federal law and the Constitution.
Recent legislation, AB392, makes it harder for police to defend themselves in a shooting and easier for criminals to kill cops. Officers will now have to argue that killing was necessary and not just say they had a fear they were in danger.
CA ammunition law makes it more costly to buy ammo and does nothing to prevent crime.
CA diverts billions of dollars to accommodate illegal aliens…education, healthcare, housing and other safety nets created for legal citizens in need.
Our environmental and water restrictions have made farming in CA the most expensive in USA.
CA is chasing away jobs, job-creators and skilled wage earners in favor of non-productive, non-taxpaying, non-contributing tax takers!
Many large neighborhoods are in decay resulting in crime and gangs, especially in LA, Fresno, Oakland, Stockton, even Fresno!
Criminals enjoy more rights than victims once again…we repeat the mistakes of the past.
Health insurance companies in CA must provide contracts written in 16 language and serve notice of language availability to every customer (cost passed on to me).
Prop 47 – voters’ decision to reduce penalties for drug and property crimes contributed to a jump in car burglaries, shoplifting and other theft. Shoplifting might as well not even be a crime.
There’s plenty more, but I am out of time. Now you know why I am concerned about the state I grew up in. It was so much different back in my day, when I was in school, than the state we have now. It’s poorer, it’s so much more costly to live in… it makes me sad to see what we have lost. Our wealth is being squandered by the crazy people that have taken over plain and simple. Now we have Gov. Gavin Newsom intent on providing full benefits to illegal aliens. This guy’s thinking is all wrong, he’s insane.
