2013′s 13 Most Dangerous Californians

There are so many dangerous, powerful and just flat wrong Californians … how can I pick just 13? That’s easy … by starting at #13 and counting down.

#13 – Mary Nichols, Director, California Air Resources Board

Mary NicholsAs the chief enforcer of AB32, California’s Quixotic crusade to single-handedly stop global warming, Nichols has led the charge to tax industry on carbon emissions, force us into less-safe cars, and shower today’s generation of Robber Barron capitalists with piles of our tax dollars as “incentives” for green energy. Her efforts to set truck diesel emission levels low enough to force most truckers out of business was so corrupted – with her full knowledge and consent – that it is tied up in lawsuits.

#12 – Matthew Rodriguez, Sec. for Environmental Protection/CalEPA

RodriquezCalEPA – which you can thank for women’s false fearsabout a link between passive smoke and breast cancer – has long thrown its weight behind unproven (unprovable?) science. Especially if it increases the power of the state. Rodriguez has globe-hopped this year promoting California’s carbon tax scheme to other countries. He says he’s doing no such thing, as he’s “loathe to get involved in the international discussions” about carbon credits. Yeah, but he said that at a UN carbon credits conference … in Poland.

POLL: Does the Federal Government routinely assume powers that it is not granted by the Constitution?

#11 – Ron Calderon, D-Montebello

ron-calderonHis state senate district includes the jaw-droppingly corrupt city of Bell, and Calderon can match that city’s cesspool of corruption dollar-for-dollar. Calderon isn’t just a player in Sacramento’s pay-for-play underbelly, he’s its poster boy, waving around expensive cigars after more expensive meals at even more expensive posh resorts, all paid for by lobbyists and favor-seekers. His political empire is crashing now in an FBI investigation, so if there’s any  justice at all for us taxpayers, he’ll soon be sharing a very un-posh jail cell with disgraced Bell city manager Robert Rizzo.

#10 – Pam O’Connor, Santa Monica Councilmember and Statist

Pam O'ConnorThere are, unfortunately, hundreds of big-government power-grabbers in California, but O’Connor takes the Gov Girls Gone Wild thing to a higher level. The former mayor of the People’s Republic of Santa Monica is a big player at the appropriately named SCAG (SoCal Area Governments). There she chairs its Regional Comprehensive Plan Task Force, whose goal it is to tell ushow they know we should live – crowded into urban flats our forefathers had the wisdom to flee, taking mass transit (she also chairs LA’s money-losing Transit Authority) to green jobs so we can pay more and more taxes.

#9 – Dan Richard, Chair, California High Speed Rail Authority

Dan RichardIt was a bad year for the CHSRA this year, and for reasons much worse than its lack of a cool acronym like CARB or SCAG. It seems that judges want to hold Richard’s agency to the promises made in the ballot initiative that created it, and if that weren’t bad enough, the feds insist on treating it like any other rail agency. The nerve. Still, Richard soldiers on, convinced that if he can bamboozle Californians into letting him build just one forlorn stretch of track in the hinterlands, the money machine won’t shut off until the entire money-losing monstrosity is completed.

#8 Roxanne Sanchez, President, SEIU Local 1021

Roxanne SanchezSanchez heads one of two Bay Area Rapid Transit unions whose strikes subjected 400,000 Bay Area commuters to chaos earlier this year. She became the face of public employee hubris as she articulated the arguments why workers whose average salary is over $70,000 a year plus $11,000 in overtime – and who contribute nothing toward their lucrative retirement packages – should get a raise of 23 percent. As if that weren’t enough, after a deal was struck, she sued BART over a fine point in the new contract to get even more money.

  • These slugs moved to Colorado by the drove full. They ruined that state in no time. But what really happen to CA was the NYer's moved to CA  first and destroyed it. I sujest the South to those wanting to excape that mess of a place. Just don't tell anyone you are from CA and you can blend right in. If you start acting like a west coast fool you will find yourself very much a lone.

  • this is just the 'tip-of-the-ice-burg'   - - - -

  • WHAT ABOUT PELOSI  FIENSTINE  BOXER THE SHOULD HEAD THE LIST.

    THEY ARE THE MOST DANGER  A DANGER TO AMERICA AND CALIFORNIA

  • Looks more and more that we should hope that every liberal and democrap have some convention in California and hope the big one hits and makes Arizona beach front property

  • A Country Founded by Geniuses but Run by Idiots!

    If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but
    not for entering and remaining in the country illegally — you might
    live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or
    to take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion — you might
    live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If you MUST show your identification to board an airplane, cash a
    check, buy liquor, or check out a library book and rent a video, but not
    to vote for who runs the government — you might live in a nation that
    was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If the government wants to prevent stable, law-abiding citizens from
    owning gun magazines that hold more than ten rounds, but gives twenty
    F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt — you might live in a
    nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If, in the nation’s largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but
    not one 24-ounce soda, because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make
    you fat — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is
    run by idiots.

    If an 80-year-old woman or a three-year-old girl who is confined to a
    wheelchair can be strip-searched by the TSA at the airport, but a woman
    in a burka or a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head
    searched — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but
    is run by idiots.

    If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions
    of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more — you might live in a
    nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If a seven-year-old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his
    teacher is “cute,” but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class
    in grade school is perfectly acceptable — you might live in a nation
    that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more
    government regulation and intrusion, while not working is rewarded with
    Food Stamps, WIC checks, Medicaid benefits, subsidized housing, and free
    cell phones — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses
    but is run by idiots.

    If the government’s plan for getting people back to work is to
    provide incentives for not working, by granting 99 weeks of unemployment
    checks, without any requirement to prove that gainful employment was
    diligently sought, but couldn’t be found — you might live in a nation
    that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If you pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest
    big-screen TV, while your neighbor buys iPhones, time shares, a
    wall-sized do-it-all plasma screen TV and new cars, and the government
    forgives his debt when he defaults on his mortgage — you might live in a
    nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If being stripped of your Constitutional right to defend yourself
    makes you more “safe” according to the government — you might live in a
    nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If the media panders to your openly socialist leader while the IRS targets groups with dissenting views— you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If your government 'cracks down' on legal gun sales to law abiding citizens while secretly supplying illegal guns to Mexican drug cartels— you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If your local government (Chicago) outlawed gun ownership for 'the safety of its citizens' and now boasts the worst murder rate in the country — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    What a country!

    How about we give God a reason to continue blessing America

  •    No wonder businesses are fleeing the state in droves for places who will allow business to flourish. Not tax and regular into oblivion.

  • Unfortunately the people that voted these loons into office,  don't like what they got.   Their pie in the sky unworkable theories are based in corruption.   So what do these idiots do.   They move.  And then the poor state that gets them has  suddenly found that these loons did not learn their lesson  in Calif with higher and higher taxes.  Control over breathing.     These loons  start voting for the same things that destroyed Calif.     They come with the attitude that the  dummies that live in these states are too dumb to know what is good for them. 

  • Are there any people in that state with common sense or have they all drank the kool aid? How can a state survive under such idiotic leadership?

  • 'Stupid is as Stupid does!" Californians seem to love their stupid politicians, they keep doing it. Just like New York city and Chicago. Corruption runs deep and debt is not a concern for them, Hell! it's not their money and given they make sure they get all of it they can while in office, then move on. Yet the people keep putting these criminals into office, why? Northern California has asked to be separated from southern California and upper New York State wants to get away form new York City. I feel your pain.
