What Life Is Like In California’s
Post-Apocalyptic Landscape

I woke up in the morning wondering about the dark red rays coming from behind the curtain. While I expected the darkened sky, the degree of darkness and the fact that I couldn’t smell fire surprised me. Northern California fires have become increasingly common over the last decade as a consequence of mismanaging the environment. Native Americans staged controlled burns to safeguard their villages and create favorable hunting conditions. We failed to emulate that practice, and, as even Mother Jones concedes, so much fuel accumulated in the wilderness that megafires began burning year after year.

"We failed to emulate that practice, and, as even Mother Jones concedes, so much fuel accumulated in the wilderness that megafires began burning year after year." "WE' did not fail . The tree-huggers and the Climate Change panic merchants and the left corrupt politicians who though they would coast to power on their coattails as the next populist agenda of the "woke" generation did. when they stopped the seasonal winter " controlled burns" of the forest floor debris made up of dead branches, fallen DEAD trees and useless undergrowth making up the tinder dry fire fuels. for the sake of "respecting nature". Respecting nature has turned out the MURDER of hundreds of thousands of mature trees, hundreds of thousands of animals, thousands of homes and hundreds of human lives, and millions of tons of polluting carbon into the atmosphere. The same applies to that other famous seasonal Bush Fire country, Australia.

When is someone in the California government going to bring up clear cutting fire breaks? Since they seem partial to letting prisoners out, why not give them a state job at minimum wage upon release clearing out the underbrush? That'd be a heck of a lot cheaper than the mess they've got now and have had.

Last year our high school friends sold their home in Meadow Lakes, CA, just east of Auberry and moved down the mountain to Clovis where we all grew up. Their former home and property was completely destroyed along with the rest of Meadow Lakes. They’re selling their home in Clovis and escaping to Idaho. Don’t worry Idaho, they’re conservatives. We witnessed controlled burns our whole lives growing up in California in the late fifties through the seventies. The end of controlled burning was the beginning of the huge fires. We left for good in ‘94. Marxism is evil and can only destroy.

Oddly enough, the state of Michigan is full of beautiful forests. We very rarely have forest fires that get out of control. Logging goes on constantly and has for a century and a half. Most of our land is accessible by motorized vehicles as a result of the logging ( and oil/gas) roads which allow access to fire fighting equipment. Only rarely do we utilize fire planes. lt's not exactly magic. Just requires a conservative government at least once in a while. You cannot trust ANYTHING to leftists for very long......

What the dims forget is that they need the conservatives to pay for their folly. Sure there are some very rich dims - but for the most part - the bulk of the taxes come from the conservatives. What happens to Calif if the conservatives abandon the state? They will quickly run out of other people's money and have to support it with their money. Won't happen. Dims like tax deductions too. One other quick point - communism is capitalism repackaged. The perfect communist state would be equal sharing among the many at the point of a gun. But who holds the gun? The communist capitalists - who have confiscated the wealth of the many for their own benefit. In the end - it is all about the money. Capitalism actually is much more fair than communism. Communism indiscriminately steals from every one. Capitalism allows freedom and the resouraces are allocated to those who provide the most value to society - this is called supply and demand. In communism, they got the demand down pat - but they don't know how to create supply. This is why communism fails. It is all about the unjust mistreating the just.

Year after year the Environmentalists insist that letting all the dead brush, branches and trees accumulate is natures way, don't touch it. The Conservationists have been telling them that all of that dry dead stuff burns faster and at higher temperatures. If the dead stuff is remove before it gets too deep by controlled burns, the trees get scorched, but survive. If dead stuff is allowed to get too deep, it burns longer at higher temperatures which kills the trees. The reason for the massive fires in California is not caused by "global warming." It is the result of gross neglect of proper forest management.

“Keep voting for Democrats”. The Democrats represent 46% of the voter registrations right now. Not even a simple majority. But it is considerably more than the 24.6% Republicans. There is a similar number of No Party Preference voter registrations. Not Independents with a capital I, but Unknowns. We 5,018,332 registered Republican voters would love to know how you’d work it out… We don’t vote for Democrats, yet get hit with the same thoughtless brushstroke.

All they would need to do is approve selective logging areas to cut down narrow swaths of forest, harvest the trees for lumber and thus create fire breaks. And adopt proven forestry management practices by starting underbrush fires during periodic California rainy seasons. The logging would create thousands of jobs and reduce dependence on Canadian lumber and plywood. New growth would flourish. Interesting observation from the article that this would likewise increase rainwater percolation to replenish the aquifers. To a previous poster's point, a personal friend in Michigan contracts with the state for his tree-cutting crews to remove tree growth that creeps onto the highway shoulders there. He also has contracts with power companies to remove the trees growing under the big power lines, to limit fires and interference with the lines. This isn't rocket science, but it is proven science.

When you elect democrats who are in bed with environmentalists and their ignorant policies, this is the results you get. Elections have consequences, writ supersized. This is not on the climate, this is on democrats and their willful mismanagement and diversion of Federal forestry funds. I say that about Oregon and Washington as well. Preventing loggers and companies from cleaning up the fuel that makes these fires burn so hot and for so long is why we have them, not climate. #4, I think that is what they used to do in all three coast states, using minimum security, low risk prisoners, going out to help cut those, and clear out the debris. But the cost of the guards to supervise is something the Leftists refused to pay anymore. Again, failed democrat policies. Disclosure: I live in Oregon, and have all my life. So I have had 6 decades of watching democrats in action. I saw what used to work, and what does not. We are now in the 'what does not' phase and have been since the 80's.

A big part of the problem is one PARTY rule. They can do or not do whatever they like. Some of them must know that these policies are not working, but they're too busy coming up with inane laws so they'll have something - anything - with their name on it. A constitutional amendment is necessary to correct any such law and the PARTY does everything to fight that. Prop 6 to repeal the onerous, additional gas tax was a prime example. There have been recall petitions for the incompetent governor, but the PARTY controls the machinery and wasn't even sending the collected petitions to the capital. The politicians feed the unions and vice versa, so forget reason, logic, fair play or any concern for the average citizen.

#1, disagree. Californians DO deserve their government. They chose it, year after year. They voted for the absurd social, energy and environmental policies that directly created the misery they now inhabit. Worse, they try mightily to foist their absurd policies on the rest of us. They coddle the Follywood elite who hector us, they foster the illegal alien immigrants who undercut the wages of tax paying citizens. The fires of Hell are now upon them? Karma’s a bad distaff dog.

I really want to know what infects a persons brain to vote for reprobate politicians like California Governor Gavin Newsom. In the midst of the state burning down from over 12 wild fires this idiot has the unmitigated gall to say the reason for the fires is Global Warming. This numbskull is the problem because he and his mentor Jerry "Moombeam" Brown allowed the Sierra Club to dictate the forestry policies related to undergrowth mitigation in the forests. No control burns and little or no vegetation removal. RECALL GAVIN NEWSOM!

The California Republican representatives regularly raise the point that when cattle and other livestock grazed the hillsides, the forests were logged and the the brush routinely cleared manually, or via controlled burns the fires were much less serious. The forest back roads were passable even to a passenger car. Wise environmentalists stopped all that to save nature or something. The fire trails/logging roads were cabled off and allowed to wash out, become brush choked and blocked by landslides and fallen trees while the forests and wildlands became piles of fuel. Why aren't the idiots voted out? The Los Angles coast and the Bay area are usually air conditioned by sea breezes and the smoke is trapped in the central valley where all the deplorables live. So the wealthy liberal lotus eaters have a couple more tokes and mumble "what bad air" and vote democrat. And say things like "too bad those people lost their homes but they should move here and give the forests back to mother nature" and "its not my demigod Gavin Newsome's fault, its climate change caused by those evil Republicans". And "just because the democrats stopped the building of roads, reservoirs and and power plants and invited 13 million undocumented guest in from Mexico. its not the democrats fault we have traffic jams, water shortages and rolling black outs its you evil deplorables who just don't conserve properly". And their loyal legions of ballot fillers just keep working until the proper outcome is reached. Around Los Angeles and the Bay Area amazing numbers of people vote. Simply unbelievable numbers. But they count.

We did not vote for this. Radical environmental policies were forced upon us by malicious lawsuits, upheld by the Ninth Circus. Californians voted not to allow illegals welfare. The commies took the citizens to court and a judge stole our vote and forced the care of illegals upon the legal. Californians voted against homosexual "marriage" and once again the commies took the citizens to court and gave the win to the losers. When the commies wanted a "jungle primary" the Republican leader of the state senate (Abel Maldonado, spit) gave it to them in exchange for the passage of one year's budget. The last two elections for U.S. Senate offered only two Dim candidates. Even the alternative parties are shut out of the "primary top two" on the general election ballot. Orange County fell in 2018 due to the now legal practice of ballot harvesting. The CA RINO party is too pure to do the same and too cowardly to take the commies to court. California is a victim of the Uniparty. Conservatives can launch successful ballot propositions, forced to get three times the necessary signatures because the Secretary of State has a much higher rate of disqualifying signatures for us than for Commie initiatives. Then once on the ballot, the same Secretary of State writes the title and the summary. We're trying to recall Gruesome Nuisance, but the state keeps invalidating our signatures. Where is the CA Republican Party? Shaking in their boots because every last one of them is a Never Trumper. California is a victim of the Uniparty. We've been hearing a lot from the square states in the middle about standing your ground and defending your property. Yet, Californians fleeing from those responsibilities are considered the smart ones and encouraged to leave, as long as they don't settle in your area bringing along with them their commie cooties. The entire nation has the commie infection and the legacy Democrat states are in the ICU on life support! How is it possible to be the United States of America without California, Oregon, Washington, Illinois, Massachusetts or New York? The Golden State is my birthright. I am staying to fight for her. California citizens have the right to be full United States citizens. Right here. In our own state! In 2012, when we were facing Obama's second term, did we Americans abandon our country? We had no idea Donald Trump was discerning his destiny, yet we stayed to fight for America. I urge my fellow and sister Californians thinking of leaving to thoughtfully reconsider. Stay with me and fight for our heritage. We will be rescued during President Trump's second term. MAGA: Its for all 50 states or it ain't worth a damn.

# 24 all conservatives are welcome here in Georgia. We have a beautiful state with low taxes, the first $65,000 of your retirement income is exempt from state income tax, and what's left is taxed at a low rate. I live near the Tennessee line but can reach the beach in 5 hours and the mountains in thirty minutes, gasoline prices are low as are the utilities. I have lived here all my life so I guess I am a little biased but it's a good place to retire.

Thank you, #33! Yes, we hear unity, but don’t experience it here. I remember when so many California LDotters manned this forum around the clock for several days to provide contact points for those who had been hit by Hurricane Katrina. Now we get jabs that the fires have to do with karma (we have a half dozen good Christian friends on evacuation warnings right now - they should not be having karma problems). Years and years of supposedly "good Christian Conservatives" hoping California has an earthquake that causes it to fall in the ocean. I can’t imagine having thoughts like that when there is hardly an area in the country that is exempt from some kind of natural disaster. Why would I wish it on them? Why would I wish them ill just because of the state where they happen to live, perhaps were born and raised? Some of what is posted here makes no sense to me. I still remember the woman who posted from Texas: “I’ve never been to California, but I know I wouldn’t like it…” /s/A Happy Native Californian

An imperfect though telling metric in presidential campaigns is enthusiasm among small donors, those giving $200 or less. It's a rough proxy for enthusiasm among the base, and just as polling shows President Trump receives a more ardent embrace among his base than rival Joe Biden, the individualized money story reflects that as well. Americans who donate to campaigns are more likely to vote, according to the Pew Research Center. "Among those who say they vote always or nearly always, 21% said that they made a donation, compared with 4% of those who seldom voted or voted only part of the time," the Pew survey found.

The Middle East may be beginning a historic realignment more significant than the “Arab spring” or anything else that has happened in the region since World War II. That beginning came about because two Sunni Muslim nations — the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain — were willing to admit that whatever theoretical danger Israel poses to Islamic dominance of the Middle East pales in comparison with the threat of Shiite Iran. The credit for this enormous breakthrough goes entirely to President Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo who brought it about and are pushing it ahead. The UAE breakthrough brought Trump a nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize.

This is not simply because figures like Lara Logan, Mollie Hemingway, Newt Gingrich, Dan Bongino, and the editors of the New York Post took note. It spread because concerned citizens began sharing it throughout the nation. We could tell it was especially effective because so many in the mainstream media maintained studious radio silence. But hyperventilating ruling-class supporters of the Biden/BLM/Antifa coalition did predictably lash out.

Were the Republicans to run a Catholic for president who supported, say, segregation, the bishops wouldn’t hesitate to condemn that figure and warn their congregations not to vote for him. But the bishops apply no such condemnation or warning to Joe Biden, who is a dissenter in favor of abortion rights and gay marriage. Even Biden’s officiating at gay marriages, an egregiously disobedient act for a Catholic, is met with silence from most bishops.

William Shakespeare famously observed that “all the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players.” One of these players, Joe Biden, is currently trying out for the biggest role of his life. Unfortunately, he’s in danger of bombing the audition. He’s flubbing lines, breaking character, and occasionally forgetting the plot. His rambling, often incoherent speech in front of a supportive audience at a church in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on September 3 shows that he’s no longer playing the role of viable presidential candidate. Instead, he’s stumbled into the last scene of Shakespeare’s “strange, eventful history” — “second childishness and mere oblivion.”

Two years ago, a flood of anti-Trump sentiment helped flip the House of Representatives blue, with Democratic candidates winning more votes than Republicans by nearly 10 percentage points nationwide — a record margin for a party that had been in the minority. Because the 2018 election was largely seen as a referendum on President Trump, Democratic strategists are looking to carry those gains forward. Indeed, national and swing-state polls continue to show Joseph R. Biden Jr. with a steady lead — particularly in the suburban areas where Democrats made some of their biggest gains in the midterms. But Mr. Biden may not be able to count on the same level

LAS VEGAS – Emotions were running high on election night in 2016, especially if you had nearly $30,000 on the line. “I went into election night with the position of Trump minus $28,000, Clinton plus $25,000," Paul Krishnamurty, political analyst for Betfair, the world’s largest online betting exchange, told Fox News. Donald Trump’s victory that night over Hillary Clinton almost four years ago came as a surprise to professional gamblers and pollsters. “I think everybody was shell-shocked, right? You were just watching these crazy results come in and everything just flip,” Krishnamurty said. “I managed to nearly halve my loss on Trump. But it wasn't a good night.”

ore Americans say former Vice President Joe Biden has the mental clarity to be president versus Donald Trump, according to the latest Fox News poll released Sunday. Despite the Trump campaign and the president himself repeatedly questioning the mental acuity of Biden, a larger percentage of U.S. adults say they believe the Democratic presidential candidate has the traits best suited for the job. A slight majority of likely voters—51 percent—told Fox News they believe Biden, 77, has the "mental soundness" to be president, compared to 47 percent who say the same about Trump, 74.

(Tweet) Morning March Seattle, which advocates to abolish the police and invest in black communities, organised the gathering at the local grocery store to educate customers on the barriers black residents face such as gentrification. This comes as leftists conflate Trader Joe's and gentrification, according to The Atlantic in a 2019 article on the "conflicts between white Portlanders and long-time black residents" over "widening bicycle lanes" and "the construction of a new Trader Joe’s."

I’m not anti-mask, per se. There, I said it. If you’ve been reading my rants, er, columns on the topic these past few months, you might get another idea though, and I understand that. It certainly SEEMS like I’m anti-mask, and you’d be forgiven for thinking that was the case. That doesn’t mean that I like wearing them, of course. They’re uncomfortable and stifling and, frankly, disgusting. Even so, I WOULD wear them, when necessary, if the arguments the mask-proponents used to con almost the entire world into accepting and even mandating the practice were actually, well, true. Ah, but there’s the rub, right?
Endorsement: Joe Biden isn’t just ‘anybody

This year’s presidential election confronts voters with the most consequential choice they have faced in decades, and for many, their lifetimes: between a divisive, authoritarian-leaning incumbent and a seasoned patriot who brings not only five decades of experience, ability and commitment to American values, but also bold ideas at a time of national crisis. Nothing less than the health of our constitutional democracy is at stake. So stark is the contrast between Donald Trump and Joe Biden that we feel compelled to announce our endorsement of the Democratic nominee and his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris of California, now, at what is traditionally the beginning of the fall campaign and before

Normally, I would spurn the idea of citing an anonymous post that purports to contain inside information on a presidential candidate. But two factors currently weigh on my mind, causing me to make an exception. One is that MSM Trump-haters have no compunction at all over relying exclusively on anonymous sources (snip) But the other factor is more serious and directly relevant to the anonymous post I am about to cite. The Biden campaign clearly is hiding their candidate from exposure to circumstances that might test his mental acuity and vigor on a sustained basis. We now have direct evidence that the campaign has been deceiving the public by using a teleprompter

I woke up in the morning wondering about the dark red rays coming from behind the curtain. While I expected the darkened sky, the degree of darkness and the fact that I couldn’t smell fire surprised me. Northern California fires have become increasingly common over the last decade as a consequence of mismanaging the environment. Native Americans staged controlled burns to safeguard their villages and create favorable hunting conditions. We failed to emulate that practice, and, as even Mother Jones concedes, so much fuel accumulated in the wilderness that megafires began burning year after year.
Guy poops in Pelosi’s driveway, live streams it 32 replies

San Francisco, Calif. -- The Poopalosi protestor live streamed this performance piece from Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s residence in the posh Presidio Terrace neighborhood on YouTube. Believe it or not, thanks to District Attorney Chesa Boudin, this act is quasi-legal in San Francisco. When Boudin, a public defender who ran on an anti-police campaign platform, was elected in 2019, he promised not to prosecute so-called “quality of life” crimes, including public urination, defecation and prostitution. Within hours of posting on Friday, Lifes Mavrek, the moniker on YouTube of this Cuban-American vagabond, raised thousands of dollars and generated tens of thousands of views.

In late June NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace made national headlines after he claimed nefarious characters hung a noose in his garage at Talladega. Bubba is one of two black NASCAR drivers. At the time NASCAR released a statement revealing that a noose was reportedly found in top driver Bubba Wallace’s Talladega garage stall. But after several days of investigating by several agents the FBI released a statement on its investigation at the Talladega Superspeedway and determined that Bubba Wallace was not the target of a hate crime.

The strength of America’s elections lies in people’s confidence that votes will be fairly tallied, and that the losing party will bow out gracefully and become the loyal opposition. But what if a loser refuses to acknowledge the results of a free and fair election? What if it instead takes to the streets to commit violence and mayhem? Or even attempts a coup? We ask because there’s every sign now that the Democrats, in a panic over candidate Joe Biden’s lackluster basement campaign and growing evidence that he is suffering age-related mental impairment, will refuse to acknowledge President Donald Trump
The Bishops Bail Out Biden 30 replies

Were the Republicans to run a Catholic for president who supported, say, segregation, the bishops wouldn’t hesitate to condemn that figure and warn their congregations not to vote for him. But the bishops apply no such condemnation or warning to Joe Biden, who is a dissenter in favor of abortion rights and gay marriage. Even Biden’s officiating at gay marriages, an egregiously disobedient act for a Catholic, is met with silence from most bishops. While Pope Francis felt no reservations about condemning Trump’s faith — he called him “not Christian” for supporting border walls — he and his like-minded bishops refuse to question Biden’s

Left-wing documentary filmmaker Michael Moore launched a profane, fallacy-filled rant on September 11th, calling President Trump a “mass killer” and likening him to Osama Bin Laden. Moore insisted that “no American other than Confederate President Jefferson Davis and his General Robert E. Lee has killed more Americans than Donald J. Trump.”“My friends. This is murder. In the extreme. No American other than Confederate President Jefferson Davis and his General Robert E. Lee has killed more Americans than Donald J. Trump,” Moore said in an “Emergency Podcast Episode” of RUMBLE, referring to the U.S. death toll of the Chinese coronavirus.

Police shot dead a 27-year-old man—who was awaiting trial for stabbing and seriously injuring four people—after he charged at an officer while brandishing a huge knife over his head. Officers in Lancaster, Pennsylvania were called to a home at 4.15pm yesterday by Ricardo Munoz's sister who said he had become aggressive toward their mother and was trying to break into her house.(Snip) Yesterday's shooting sparked protests in the city, with people marching from the scene of the shooting to the Lancaster Police Department while chanting 'this is what democracy looks like'.
