Will California Ever Thrive Again?
Investors Business Daily, by Victor Davis Hanson

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 7/10/2017 5:10:00 AM

There was more of the same old, same old California news recently. Some 62% of state roads have been rated poor or mediocre. There were more predictions of huge cost overruns and yearly losses on high-speed rail -- before the first mile of track has been laid. One-third of Bay Area residents were polled as hoping to leave the area soon. Such pessimism is daily fare, and for good reason. The basket of California state taxes -- sales, income and gasoline -- rates among the highest in the U.S. Yet California roads and K-12 education rank near the bottom. After years of drought,

California is very much akin to an alcoholic who won´t admit that they have a problem.

Can they get better? Sure, but not until they have crashed and hit rock bottom and admit to themselves that their way of doing things was completely wrong. THEN they can get and accept help to begin to heal and thrive again.

Not until then.

California and Obamacare should be treated the same - stand aside and let them collapse. Neither can be fixed.

It should also be noted that the same elites from Kalifornia that have ruined the state are fueling the hatred in the Country and insisting that the Country follow the same path to ruin that they have taken for their state.

It is insane after having demonstrated the complete failure of their ideas to INSIST that they be used nationwide and also insist that these same corrosive and destructive policies are the only wholesome choice we can make. Experience and knowledge prove that Kalifornia is wrong yet they persist. They are addicts of Socialism and they can´t get the monkey off their backs.

FTA "One in three American welfare recipients resides in California."

Let that stat sink in. Cali has 1/3 of the country´s total welfare recipients - in just one state. Do you think it might be connected to another stat in the article? "One in four state residents was not born in the U.S."

And yet the Sacrmento Bee EDITORIAL BOARD writes "We hate President Donald Trump’s idea of building a big, hideous wall at the Mexican border. It won’t stop illegal immigration and would waste billions of dollars. Trump has used the concept as a demagogic tool to gin up his base, and has unnecessarily antagonized Mexico, one of this country’s closest friends."

My guess is the answer to Victor Davis Hanson´s question is NO!

This is what happens when the state government spends all of its revenue on harboring illegals and providing them with every entitlement known to man, including tuition to state universities.

You can´t fix stupid and you pretty much can´t fix this kind of insanity.

Strongly agree with all above comments. An excellent piece by Professor Hanson.

Perfect example of Mrs. Thatcher´s definition of socialism by running out of ´other people´s money´. There is a website that lists the huge pensions paid to Cali state employees.

Also perfect definition of insanity, doing the same thing over and over.

It is a beautiful state with abundant natural resources; too bad the leadership is so bad. But at least they have a US Senator who is black, foul-mouthed AND female!

All of their problems can be traced back to the Socialist leaders of both parties. I can remember years ago when California started the Open Classroom policy which was a disaster. The problem was that the rest of the country followed suit and by the time CA had figured out it wasn´t working and was trying something else, it became a failure in all the states. Why the Dept. of Education thinks CA knows how to do anything well is beyond me.

"One-third of Bay Area residents were polled as hoping to leave the area soon." So, the radical Leftists ruin their state by electing a one party system of radical Leftists and then because it has become so bad, they want to leave and spread their cancer to other states in the union.

A good barometer of the attitude and intelligence of the state of Kalifornia is to see who they pick to represent them. Based on this,they will continue to sink into chaos. The only hope is to let them wander into complete bankruptcy or please leave the union and start your own country. Kalimehico.

I really don´t have a good word for the type of situation California is in. As a kid in my early teens, I lived in Sacramento. It was fantastic. We had the best schools, our lives were pretty much free. We would walk just one block from my house to go shoot frogs with our 22´s and we were 14 years old! I was in the California Cadet Corps, and a champion shooter on my high school rifle team. We kept our 22 cal precision target rifles in a closet in our class room! We had 60 "Men" on our team and on our precision marching team. On "Uniform Day" we wore our uniforms and were highly respected parts of our student body.

Now it´s all Kaleefourneeyah- The people´s Republik. All just gone- not much left of it. And the horror is, the "What Ever They Ares" won´t stop ruining it.

Alta California was doing well when it was a part of New Spain; however, a revolting Mexico took it over and decided that the help given to the area by the Church was not as amenable to control as government control. The attachment of the area to the United States has been as controlling as Mexico, and as we all know, government "help" means only government control.

Venezuela ought to be discussed at every campaign rally or political speech, because that is the future of any communist/socialist state.

Venezuela can´t look over the horizon at 49 other States thinking, "Hey. If things get too bad, those guys will bail us out."

California thinks they can and even have a right to get financial help from the rest of us.

The really big and in many ways tragic problem is this very welfare-state mentality:
some needed help, got it, felt (and were made) more and more comfortable not doing anything to improve their lives.
Whatever ingenuity they´d had is now gone.
or,
many arrived there (much like what´s going on in Denver, etc) expecting to immediately go on public services. Maybe they´d been on it elsewhere and that´s all they know. They think it´s their job to go down to the welfare office even if they´ve just arrived in our Country.

Either way, what socialists do is destroy the human spirit, dignity and will to overcome.

After welfare reform of the 90s (passed by the Congress and finally signed into Law by Clinton), the work requirement actually began to force people out of lethargy AND hopelessness and into productivity. Mayny began to experience a sense of dignity.

Communism/socialism is cruel and inhumane.

Some time ago it occurred to me that the once Golden State could only be seen as the Fool´s Gold State.

Maybe Clooney from his walled LA fortress can come up with some ideas? /s

I´m pretty sure that everything will be fine in California once the high speed rail system is completed on 9 AM, September 30th, 2128 between North Fresno and South Fresno.

Add that to universal mandatory free health care for humans, pets, and barnyard animals and California will be the envy of the world.

Short answer: No.

California is big corrupt controlling government in all its glory. Some people get rich, everyone else pays to make it possible. Money for roads and education? Are you kidding?!? It´s more important to use tax dollars to buy votes and buy elections. The era of buying a drunk a bottle of wine for his vote is over. Today, they want six digit salaries.

IRS finally agrees to clear
last tea party case
Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan    Original Article

The IRS has finally agreed to a process for deciding on the last remaining nonprofit application that was snared in the Obama administration’s tea party targeting, more than four years after the illegal singling-out of conservative groups for special scrutiny was first revealed. In court filings this week, the IRS acceded to rules governing how the tax agency will decide whether to grant nonprofit status to the Texas Patriots Tea Party, which has been awaiting a decision for years. The agreement doesn’t mean the group will be approved, but it sets up a process for making a decision. “This does provide a path

The FBI´s investigation into genital mutilation of girls, some as young as six-years-old, has expanded beyond the original case in Michigan where two doctors were arrested and indicted in April. Girls from Minnesota were taken to Michigan for "treatment" by their parents. A refresher on some of the details: The Department of Justice indicted and arrested Detroit emergency room doctor Jumana Nagarwala on multiple charges Thursday, alleging she performed a number of illegal female genital mutilations (FGM) from 2005 and 2017. Her victims are minor girls, some as young as six years old. “Despite her oath to care for her patients, Dr.

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- President Donald Trump, who has averaged 40% job approval since his inauguration, received approval ratings of 50% or higher in 17 states in the first half of 2017. Residents in an equal number of states gave him approval ratings below 40%. In 16 states, his ratings ranged between 40% and 49%. Consistent with the broader geographic patterns of Republican strength across the country, some of Trump´s highest approval ratings tend to be in Southern, Plains and Mountain West states. His lowest ratings are primarily in Northeast and West Coast states. The results are based on Gallup Daily

President Trump, in clumsy responses to interview questions, has warned Special Counsel Robert Mueller that he´d best not expand his investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election too far. It is strange, to put it no more strongly, to read such threats against the investigator by a president whose adminisitration is being investigated. It carries weight, for Trump has the authority to fire Mueller, but to do so would do incalculable damage to his presidency. Perhaps the only way for Trump to prevent an ever-expanding investigation, to keep things focused narrowly on questions of alleged collusion with Russia, and to

Returning after nearly three weeks in Europe, I am astonished by the prevailing political currents in the countries historically closest to Canada. In the United Kingdom, the government went for an increased majority against an absurd opposition leader who admires Irish and some Islamic terrorists and whose political heroes are Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez. As readers know, the result was a loss of the majority and the reconstitution of the government with the support of the Democratic Unionist Party. This was the arch-Protestant political movement of Northern Ireland, which has fortunately settled down a good deal since the piping

But thanks to President Donald Trump’s inability to get out of his own way and maintain any semblance of message discipline, the week-long celebration of American manufacturing went about as successfully as “Infrastructure Week.” Don’t remember that either?

The Big Apple’s museums are too “elitist,” said de Blasio. Never mind that most of these museums are indistinguishable from minority studies programs at local colleges. It is impossible to visit a NYC museum without encountering PC exhibits of one kind or another. Indeed, those dominate most of their collections. It is hard to see how

When President Trump made his initial remarks reflecting disappointment in Attorney General Jeff Sessions it was initially unnerving. The subsequent fallout from the public criticism has united the NeverTrump crowd, Cruzbots and professionally GOPe, to defend the honor of the much beloved former Senator. The opportunity to bash Trump is simply an ancillary benefit. Conversely, the MAGA community has largely portrayed the rift as if the Presidential critique was part of a larger strategy between the President and Attorney General. If we wait long enough some mysterious master plan will eventually to be discovered. However, the subsequent POTUS tweets and comments do

Monday on WISN’s “The Jay Weber Show,” Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) defended special counsel Robert Mueller and his investigation into Russian election interference by saying Mueller was “anything but” a “biased partisan.” A listener asked Ryan a question about why Republicans in Congress are not doing more to defend Trump against “what is becoming an obvious witch-hunt.” Ryan replied, “Remember, Bob Mueller is a Republican, who was appointed by a Republican, who served in the Republican administration, and crossed over — I mean and stayed on until his term ended.” He continued, “I don’t think many people are saying Bob

The new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, would fix the White House’s “messaging problem.” Within 24 hours of Scaramucci’s appointment, the president returned to Twitter and unloaded another torrent of political bombshells, including talking about his power to pardon, even as his attorneys were denying that Donald Trump was thinking about pardoning anyone.

(Tweets) The Wednesday decision was greeted with anger from the left, which had hoped that the military’s 2016 endorsement of the transgender ideology would push the Supreme Court and legislators nationwide to impose and establish the unpopular claim that a person’s changeable choice of “gender” is more legally important than their biological sex.
