Paul Krugman, the liberal Nobel Prize-winning columnist for the New York Times, thinks California is making an economic comeback. 

He attributes this mostly to the Republican party’s steady decline in the state, which left Governor Jerry Brown “free to push an agenda of tax hikes and infrastructure spending that sounds remarkably like the kind of thing California used to do before the rise of the radical right.”  

But the results of Brown’s most recent tax increases are hardly relieving economic pressures on the nearly two million Californians that remain unemployed in the Democrat-dominated state, whose numbers are growing, not declining.

The truth is that the Democrats, who totally control policies in the state by virtue of "supermajorities" in both houses of the State Legislature, are making California increasingly poorer; the Census Bureau announced last week that California has the highest poverty rate in the nation for the second year in a row. Yet despite California's dreary economic conditions, some of California's Democratic lawmakers are making themselves or their campaign committees richer in a personal sort of "economic comeback," and, in some cases, they are doing so by breaking the law.

One recent investigation into payoffs in the State Capitol has been breathtaking. Powerful liberal Democratic State Senator Ron Calderon recently had his office in the state capitol building raided by the FBI’s Public Corruption Squad. According to the FBI’s search warrant, which was obtained and released by the Al Jazeera American Network, probable cause for the raid included allegations that the Senator had received hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes in exchange for legislative favors, including: $60,000 in bribes from an undercover FBI agent; another $28,000 in bribes from a hospital executive; and tens of thousands of dollars more in bribes paid to the State Senator’s brother through a nonprofit organization.   

In other investigations, a Democratic Assemblyman from Watsonville was fined by the state’s campaign finance commission for illegally coordinating his successful election with an independent effort that spent tens of thousands of dollars. Another former Democratic State Senate leader faces “record fines” for misusing his campaign funds on concert tickets, fireworks, and expensive dinners.

I personally don't give a damn if that part of ca which now belongs to Mexico (LA) slips off into the ocean.  But the problem most apparent is when ca. goes financially under, if it hasn't already, obama will bail them out.  That means the tax payers of America will be held to cover the loses associated with the one party rule just like we did with Detriot.

We won't win as long as obama can continue to prop up these communist city governments.  

Excluding Frisco the northern part of California is relative conscience and votes for conservative representation frequently.  The rest of the State, in general, is a lost cause.


Ofcourse he is right.  32 years of sob's and bitches. If  the working taxpayers would  flood the streets and take on the welfare scum and the illegals it might change, but NO they will sit on the couch, hve. no money except to go to their jobs and die off.  Fast food illegals will b the ones left to keep up the streets of gold for the above mentioned. It is going 2 b ugly when they welfare and illegals turn on the s' and b;s, too bad most of us won't b here to c it.  SFO will burn, St. Helena willburn.

From what I have gathered is there is a very disturbing ripple in the force.The socialist-communism is in no longer hidden with a secret handshake.Since Oblama first year in office The very people were cloked in disquise under a title of democrat,republican are not in hiding anymore.These very slugs now openly tell the American people what they plan to do and they are getting away with it.

What have you done to let the Congress of the United States or the Legislature in your State know how you feel?


Have a good one


That is one of the reason that I left the state 2 1/2 years ago. They continue to raise the price of gas, food and anything else that they can. A business is hard pressed to make a living any longer because the people don't have the money to pay more for the same work two years ago.

Something I have a real problem with is; Many of the people leaving ca. come to Arizona, Colorado, Nevada and Texas. I don't worry about the Conservatives coming here but far too many Progressives are showing up.  In Colorado they have destroyed the lower half and in Arizona the Southern part of the State in highly populated by illegal aliens and much of it is controlled by the Progressives. 

What is sad in our country now is that if California was a totally controlled Republican state, the same things would probably be happening.  There is no difference anymore between democrats or republicans.  The only thing that guides them all is power and money.  The two parties will never allow any other group to become viable.

"Another" Amnesty would ensure one-Party Democrat rule for the entire country, they know it.

We've got the crooks in government and... who, exactly is sitting in our prisons? Isn't this backwards?

We , in Massachusetts , are almost in the same boat. We have no Republican in either house or senate nationally. We have a few Rep.'s in the state senate....Interestingly we have had three state speakers of the house indicted in the past recent years. One of them is now in prison.....We need a more balanced representation in the state , but seeing we are a left leaning state , I won't hold my breath. We will be just like California...Aint that swell!

All business owners are fleeing Caifornia in droves! California is as corrupt as D.C.! The only way that California survives is off of the financial back of the rest of America!

Why do you say "ALL?"  You know that's not true.  Here in the Silicon Valley Bay Area we have a lot of high tech heavy weights, and when I say heavy weights I mean: Hewlett-Packard, Intel, Google, EBay, Yahoo, Facebook, Youtube, Apple, and so many more.  And don't forget we have music and entertainment in So-Cal.  We also have the nice weather.  We're not down for the count, and you shouldn't be so smarmy by painting us with a wide brush.  There are Christian Conservatives here who haven't bowed our knees to Baal.  But you don't help when you seem so happy that we are overwhelmed.

SICK: Leprosy On The Rise In Los Angeles 

Ahh, the joys of open borders and Democrat leadership.

California is not just a public toilet but now there is evidence that leprosy is on the rise in Los Angeles County.

Barack Obama changed US law in 2016 and allowed immigrants with blistering STDs and leprosy to migrate to the US.

Medscape reported:

Leprosy, also known as Hansen’s disease, is rarely seen in the United States, but cases continue to emerge in Los Angeles County, a new report says.

“Hansen’s disease still exists, and we need to educate medical students and physicians,” coauthor Dr. Maria Teresa Ochoa from Keck Medical Center of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, told Reuters Health by email.

Dr. Ochoa and colleagues identified 187 patients with the disease in a review of medical records from their leprosy clinic spanning 1973 to 2018. Most patients were Latino, originating from Mexico, and they experienced a median delay in diagnosis of more than three years, the team reports JAMA Dermatology, online August 7.

Multibacillary leprosy (MB) cases outnumbered paucibacillary leprosy (PB) cases by nearly eight to one (88.6% vs. 11.4%, respectively), and Latino patients were more likely than non-Latino patients to have MB, as were patients from Central or South America (versus other regions).

Most patients (80.7%) received multidrug therapy, and most (92.6%) received antibiotics for more than two years, especially if they had MB.

Only about half of patients (56.7%) had World Health Organization (WHO) grade 0 disability (no signs or symptoms suggestive of leprosy or disability) at the one-year follow-up, whereas 16.0% had grade 1 disability (loss of protective sensation) and 26.2% had grade 2 disability (visible deformity) at the last follow-up.

Among the patients who lost protective sensation, 87.7% (50/57) did not regain it following therapy.
