Gov. Gavin Newsom wants California to stop euthanizing animals, and he’s ready to put taxpayer money toward the cause. “We want to be a no-kill state,” Newsom said during a press conference where he presented his 2020-21 budget. Specifically, Newsom’s budget calls for a $50 million one-time general fund allocation to the UC Davis Koret Shelter Medicine Program to develop a grant program for animal shelters, with a goal of helping local communities “achieve the state’s policy goal that no adoptable or treatable dog or cat should be euthanized,” according to the budget summary.

There are unadoptable animals. What is to be done with those?

Then I suggest that this State get going on preventing the numerous births of feral animals. How do they treat an aggressive animal? We all want a no-kill environment but we need to be realistic. How is this going to be accomplished???????

Not only that, #7, but let’s give pets to people who can’t even manage to feed and take care of themselves. I suppose Kalifornia lefties will enjoy seeing sick and half starved animals wandering the tent cities.

Grrr...couldn't view the article because I have an ad blocker. Animal rights groups have been pushing this for a long time. There is a group called Best Friends Animal Society (among others) pushing for no-kill shelters nationwide. Sounds like California jumped on board. It takes a lot of effort to get all pets adopted. Certain breeds (like Pits Bulls) aren't popular regardless of disposition. Most people want puppies and kittens. Ten year old cats and dogs, not so much. The pet with a monthly vet bill due to some illness and a limited life expectancy takes a certain kind of person to adopt it. Large pets aren't as adoptable. Some pets aren't as sociable as others (especially if they came from a puppy mill or hording situation), and aren't as adoptable. What are they going when the shelters are full? Open more shelters? What are they going to do when an animal comes in requiring $10000 in medical treatment?

Remember those stories of people back in the good old days putting litters of puppies or kittens in burlap bags with a rock and throwing them in the river? Guess what? They were true. It was for animal control before there were pounds, er, shelters. This is what they'll have to resort to when they start getting packs of dogs and feral cats. That and they'll need to open up a new hunting season just for dogs and cats. What about rabies?

But only 3 years ago the Democrats passed the Medical Assisted Suicide Bill which Is Euthanasia for people. Dr. Kevorkian became law. On the day the law started the largest University Hospital in California informed all staff that the killing facility was ready and they had procured a house do it outside of the hospital. Socialism is the culture of Death. In the California human Euthanasia law the main reason given was the great savings this gave for ObamaCare. Marxists love cats and dogs more than people.

Brilliant idea, Govna Gruesom. Since you view people as government's pets (with only one fundamental right - to be taken care of), test your ideas for dealing with homeless people on a population of homeless pets... then when you find something that seems to work for pets, edit those laws to replace 'pets' with 'people', and voila

#3 I'm tired of flippant comments like yours. Newsome is not what California deserves, nor any other state for that matter. I'm a born and raised Californian. Over my 71 years, I've watched this state's population triple since I was a kid and most of that growth was from immigrants from other states. I could say California's problems began after this surge from other states, but that would be unfair and hyperbole. But you get my point. Stop blaming California. There are millions of conservatives fighting to MCGA but it's difficult when you keep sending us your undesirables.

There is no need to keep up stuff that wasn't in the article. The article does not say animals are going to be given to homeless as emotional support animals. The article does not say 15 year old cats are getting $10k heart surgery. The article does not say every animal is being kept until adopted. And so on. My state is stupid enough. You don't have to make stuff up about it on top of the idiocy we already suffer through. For those of you who don't know, perfectly adoptable animals only get a few days in the typical shelter until killed. A lost pet may be killed before the owner can track it down. An abused pet may need some TLC before it's adoptable because some piece of garbage abused it as a puppy/kitten. In a state with a budget over $214 billion, we can find $50 million to save our furry friends who we made dependent upon us. We have that ethical responsibility to them. This has nothing to do with abortion or humans deciding to commit suicide. Unnecessarily killing animals who could have gone to a nice home is unconscionable.

The mask has slipped, and we see the raw power of monarchy. The kings and queens of England haven’t retained a throne for a thousand years by being soft. God’s anointed monarchs have kept their hollow crowns by force and cunning, or they’ve lost them to superior force and cunning. Last week, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced their secession from the monarchy, and that they intended to cash out with their titles, baubles, hereditary perquisites and sponsorship deals intact. Elizabeth II had other ideas. On Friday, the paparazzi at the gate snapped her driving the royal Range Rover with furrowed brow and full warpaint.
A GOP-led edge: Red states see less
unemployment, more economic growth
11 replies
Posted by MissMolly 1/14/2020 5:04:22 AM Post Reply
Opinion polling isn’t everything. However, it often gives you a good barometer of the general shape of things, especially at the state level. As of mid-2019, every single one of the top 10 most popular governors in the country were Republicans, while eight of the 10 least popular were Democrats. Generally speaking, voters trust Republicans more than they trust Democrats to lead their states. A deeper look at GOP-led states’ economic success explains why — but beyond the minutiae of simple policy, the bottom line is that electing a Republican often means increased growth and lower unemployment. An even stronger rule bears out the opposite when Democrats control the governor’s mansion.

The most substantively outrageous presidential campaign in American history has some ­serious chance of success. Bernie Sanders is leading or near the top of most polls in the first two Democratic nominating states of Iowa and New Hampshire. He could plausibly win both, which would instantly transform the race into an ugly, desperate effort to Stop Bernie. Sanders doesn’t exactly get good press.

In 2016, insurgent candidates roiled the nomination process of both major parties. Donald Trump, running as a populist, won 44 percent of the primary vote against a divided field and won the GOP nomination. Bernie Sanders, running as an unabashed socialist, also won 44 percent in the Democratic race against Hillary Clinton, despite her success in using the Democratic National Committee to kneecap Sanders. But because Sanders faced only one opponent, he lost. This year, Sanders is back, and the old saw that one way to win your party’s nomination is to have run for it before may apply.

The number one story in the news in Great Britain (and a major story around the world) is the apparent abandonment of the Royal Family by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, better known as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The story obviously has a strong personal element, but it also strikes me as emblematic of our time. The British monarchy is not just ancient, but profoundly old-fashioned. It is founded on a concept of duty, exemplified by Queen Elizabeth II, that is utterly at odds with the 21st century. Being a Royal is a great job, most would say, but it inherently involves sacrifice.

Calling the state legislature into session last Wednesday, Gov. Ralph Northam could not have been more elated. His Democrats have taken over the state legislature and are giddily preparing to exercise every ounce of their new-found powers. Northam’s expansive legislative agenda includes: passage of the long-dead Equal Rights Amendment (the deadline for ratification expired in 1982); decriminalization of marijuana; big spending on “save the planet” environmental nonsense; further liberalization of abortion laws; and, of course, far-reaching strict gun controls. Today, the Virginia Senate Judiciary Committee will begin consideration of a host of gun control bills.

It is easy to construct a scenario in which tit-for-tat actions by the Americans and Iranians lead to all-out war, close off the Gulf, send oil prices soaring, crash the global economy — and, if you are really going to go for it, end in nuclear conflagration. But what about the alternative outcome: that conflict between Iran and the West precipitates a counter-revolution against the mullahs and leads to an end of the 40-year Iranian theocracy? The overthrow of the Iranian regime is the black swan event — or maybe it ought to be called a white swan event — which no-one is talking about, which is odd

Of course Jeffrey Epstein was murdered. And there’s no reason to whisper around that. It’s impossible to conclude otherwise — particularly in the face of the latest announcement about the final hours of the jailed convicted sex offender’s life, that video footage of his first suicide attempt had been inadvertently destroyed. Mistakenly erased. It “no longer exists,” said federal prosecutors. That’s not just curious. It’s beyond-the-pale outrageously suspicious. Let’s just take a look at the facts: Epstein was arrested in July on sex trafficking charges and jailed at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York City. That was after a long and wildly horrible life

Hollywood celebrity is tough to shuck, at least for Meghan Markle, last seen in a starring role as Duchess of Sussex.

Harry can come along for the ride if he wants, but he's probably going to get chewed up and spat out in the long run. She'll dump him when he gets inconvenient.

Due to its symbolic and apolitical nature, British aristocracy are not supposed to publicly espouse political opinions, much less actively lecture people about mental health, toxic masculinity, or climate change.

Sen. Cory Booker announced Monday that he will end his campaign after failing to qualify for the Democratic debate planned for Tuesday in Iowa. "It was a difficult decision to make, but I got in this race to win, and I've always said I wouldn't continue if there was no longer a path to victory," Booker said in an email to supporters Monday. The New Jersey Democrat's announcement came a day before six presidential candidates will participate in the CNN/Des Moines Register's debate in Des Moines, Iowa. He did not qualify for the event. It also came as the Senate gears up for the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.

Who is Q? What is Q? And, perhaps most importantly, why is Q? Q and the ever-growing worldwide movement it’s inspired have been the objects of fascination, mockery and hatred, but of surprisingly little serious analysis.

Q’s followers in the QAnon community faithfully analyze every detail of Q’s drops, which are compiled here and here.

On Monday’s broadcast of ABC’s “The View,” Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said calling former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter to testify during the impeachment of President Donald Trump “would convert the Senate trial into the same kind of a sham proceeding.” Co-host Abby Huntsman said, “Do you worry that if you open the door to witnesses like John Bolton that Republicans —we’re talking about a fair trial — Republicans are going to call the Bidens, even you to testify. Trump re-upped his calls for you and Speaker Nancy Pelosi over the weekend. He was tweeting all about that. Joe Biden has said that he would not testify,

Prince Harry and Princess Meghan astounded the world — and the Royal family, apparently — when they announced they were giving up on their senior royal duties and decamping to Canada. In fact, Meghan has gone already — appearing to leave Harry to pick up the pieces at home. And it’s a shame, because the UK really did seem ready to embrace its new American princess when the pair tied the knot in a fairytale wedding at Windsor in 2018. Furthermore, the British people really do support the monarchy and do tend to cut them a lot of slack. So what could possibly have gone wrong? –All those flights–
