L.A. Times: California Policymakers Have
Failed for Decades on Gas Prices

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 10/9/2022 1:48:00 PM

The reliably left-wing Los Angeles Times has published an unusually candid analysis: that California’s policymakers, given ample warnings about the state’s vulnerability to high gas prices, have failed to do anything to address the basic problems that cause them. The Times recounted how the state created special committees in the 1990s, and again in the last decade, to deal with the challenges created by California’s “green” regulations and its aggressive environmental rules on the one hand, and market realities on the other. The Times noted Friday: California officials have had repeated warnings over the last two decades that the state’s unique blend of gasoline is susceptible to supply shortages

The people of California have spoken time and again about their "green" state and the wonders of living there. The price of gasoline is just another cost of living in The Golden State, where the masses can't get enough government intervention in their lives and the lives of others. They have a pox on their house...and what will they do about it? Another Commission? Surely they will not elect a "reform" government.

Yeah, the policy makers would be the eco-terrorist that steal one election after another.

Don't be fooled by the actions of the times. This is at the direction of Governor Brylcreem, who is calling a special session of the General Assembly to do something about the oil companies. There will be a subsequent follow-up piece, describing him as a tough policymaker -someone who will make a great President.

"Failed?" Well, you need to measure success and failure against the goal. IMO, their GOAL was to create high prices so as to make oil and gas too expensive to afford. I think they have been very successful. This was their INTENT.

I lived in Northern California near Sacramento for 13 years after I retired from Active Duty. Higher salaries offset the higher cost of living at first. Then the Democrat Assembly passed the jungle primary system where the highest two vote getters went on the general election ballot shortly after I moved there. The Democrats are the dominant party so frequently it was Democrat against Democrat and no Republican as a choice. This system guarantees single party rule forever just like the Soviet Union. One party rule with this primary system allowed all the bad things that have happened in California like a new gas tax to fix roads which was then diverted to other boondoggles. I left in 2019 and never looked back. No hope for this state.

This midterm season has seen the mainstream media downplaying outbreaks of crime, and its causes, across the country, an issue that polls badly for Democrats. So it’s not a shock that the networks on Monday morning buried a shooting outside New York Congressman (and GOP gubernatorial candidate) Lee Zeldin’s home. Zeldin’s two teenage daughters were home alone and were just feet away from the shooting. Yet, ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today avoided the story on Monday morning,

MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace suggested Monday that the United States might need a “Democracy commission” or some other organization that could save America from the Republicans — and she thought that former President Barack Obama could potentially spearhead such an effort. Wallace, who hosts “Deadline: White House” on the left-leaning network posed the question to former Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO) — and even McCaskill quickly dismissed the idea that a “commission” of any sort was necessary.

Conformity of thought is now required whether it is online, on college campuses, or, if you are in California, in a physician-patient relationship. PayPal recently introduced a $2,500 fine for anyone involved in “the sending, posting, or publication of any messages, content, or materials” that — in “PayPal’s sole discretion” — “promote misinformation.” After a firestorm of criticism, PayPal withdrew the policy, claiming the whole thing was a misunderstanding and was not official policy— hardly a convincing explanation from a site with a history of banning those it considers politically incorrect. But California physicians have had no such relief.

Donald Trump: ‘Bring Back Columbus Day!’ 0 replies

Former President Donald Trump on Monday remembered Columbus Day by calling on fellow citizens to revive the national holiday. “BRING BACK COLUMBUS DAY!” Trump stated on Truth Social. Columbus Day is a national holiday celebrated in the United States, along with other continental nations, to commemorate the day Italian explorer Christopher Columbus arrived in the Americas on October 12, 1492. The voyage would be followed by three others in 1493, 1498, and 1502. Columbus’s first voyage was financed by Ferdinand II and Isabella I, the Catholic Monarchs of Spain. The investment was significant at the time due to Spain’s expensive war against the invading Moors (Muslims).

In a shocking development to come after federal agents believe they've obtained enough evidence to charge Hunter, 52, for tax crimes and the illegal purchase of a firearm, a leaked voicemail from President Biden to Hunter showed he knew that his son was in the midst of a “drug-fueled meltdown” in October 2018.

Dustin Johnson’s move to LIV Golf, at least financially, has more than paid off. Johnson officially clinched the season-long title on Sunday after LIV’s sixth tournament in Bangkok. Though there’s still two tournaments to go, and Johnson finished T16 in Thailand, he has 121 points in the season-long individual title — which officially secured the championship. (Tweet) That means that Johnson, who has already won more than $12.7 million playing on LIV Golf, will take home an additional $18 million prize. That brings his winnings in the controversial Saudi Arabian-backed league to nearly $31 million.

Legendary Democratic Party strategist James Carville believes that embattled Nevada Sen.

I don’t think so,” Carville told the Associated Press. “It’s a good issue. But if you just sit there and they’re pummeling you on crime and pummeling you on the cost of living, you’ve got to be more aggressive than just yelling abortion every other word.” Recent polls have shown Cortez Masto trailing Laxalt, a former state Attorney General,

A Virginia public high school replaced its Columbus Day lesson with a PowerPoint on “Appropriate Terminology” for “Indigenous Rights & Identity in America,” according to a lesson obtained by journalist Asra Nomani. On Oct. 4, students at Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) Langley High School underwent a deep dive on “equity and inclusion” in lieu of a lesson on Italian explorer Christopher Columbus, according to a report from The Federalist. The lesson is part of a “pivot” from celebrating Columbus Day to celebrating “Indigenous People’s Day,” which was established by a July 23, 2020 motion from the FCPS school board.

Concerns over President Joe Biden’s recent very public displays of possibly age-related mental impairments have jumped among voters since mid-summer, the latest I&I/TIPP Poll shows. And these worries aren’t partisan, with a majority of all political groups, including Democrats, now expressing concern. In early August, we asked Americans: “Some people are concerned about President Biden’s mental health. How concerned are you about President Biden’s mental health?” At the time, a number of public displays of unsteadiness, confusion, and verbal gaffes seen in the media suggested to many that the nation’s commander-in-chief’s mental acuity was questionable.

Haitian Prime Minister Ariel Henry made the request for help to the larger international community as a whole over the weekend because of "the risk of a major humanitarian crisis." Ariel asked for a "specialized armed force" to intervene. Guterres sent a letter to the U.N. Security Council outlining various options for enhanced security support.

They are managed by Tito Francona Jr., a grandpa who led the Boston Red Sox in 2004 to their first World Series championship in 86 years. Fans in Cleveland shun the Cleveland Indians this year.

The Democrat media, in conjunction with their allies in the polling industry, have driven the false narrative that the Democrats are likely to defy both history and their historically awful record and do fairly well in the midterms, particularly in Senate races. To borrow a word from Mr. 10%, this has always been malarkey. We go through this same dance every cycle where the polls miraculously start to shift towards the Republicans in the last month, as polling outfits grudgingly start moving towards something resembling reality to avoid copious amounts of eggs on their face. But, even at that, the polls during this cycle are likely the worst
Colorado 'Accidentally' Sends Out 30,000

In a move sure to raise a few eyebrows, Colorado has “accidentally” sent out 30,000 voter registration cards to non-citizens. That’s according to a report from Colorado Public Radio. According to the outlet, the 30,000 cards were sent to non-citizens because of a mix-up with the formatting of the query involving DMV records. In Colorado, illegal immigrants are able to obtain a driver’s license, which was apparently the nexus of the issue. The postcards were mailed to residents last week who had non-citizen Colorado driver’s licenses. The state sends postcards every two years to Coloradans it believes are eligible to vote but not yet registered.
