California, once the American Mecca of milk and honey, has fallen on hard times. Though its degradation and decline are largely self-inflicted, Californias condition is nonetheless an American tragedy and a dire portent for the rest of us.
The state is fast becoming a colony and milk cow for Mexico, with a few enclaves occupied by Asians the way the British used to dominate Hong Kong and Singapore. Public spending and debt have reached catastrophic levels unmanageable by a society of self-centered individuals and interest groups. Gang warfare dominates the urban jungle. The state doubtless leads the Union in foreigners, perverts, dopesters, and aborted children. Hollywood, once a source of pleasant diversions, now pollutes not only the U.S. but the entire world with pornography, nihilistic violence, and, what is worse, bad taste. The Terminator and various other flakes have been elected governor. Productive citizens are fleeing east and north by the thousands. If illegal aliens are not counted California is losing population for the first time in a century and a half of American settlement.
However, not to worry. The California legislature has voted unanimously (ONE dissenting vote) to ban the Confederate flag! They have taken a stand on the major issue of the age, valiantly attacking a looming threat to human progress. (Though apparently the Hammer & Sickle, the Swastika, and Che Guevara and Black Power fists are still welcome).
We Southerners are blessedly free of the characteristic American passion for minding other peoples business. I usually dont care what California is up to, although, of course, the evil of its massive power in Congress and presidential elections threatens me and everything I hold dear. And its fountain of moral and cultural depravity seems inescapable.
The Powers That Be in the lost commonwealth on the Pacific assure us that

They raised the sales tax by a penny for however long and now they claim to have 2 billion extra dollars to give to government employees.
#1 Why not rebate the state for the extra tax collected?
“#1 Why not rebate the state for the extra tax collected?”
Because the Third World needs your money.
A lot of younger people must look at California, and anticipating the decline in the decades to come, decide to put the energy into their careers and homes, in a place that looks like it will growing with them, in a place that is expected to be better in 30 years, not far worse.
People don’t like to commit to, and invest themselves in losers.
did you stop to read the bill that the california assembly actually passed?
“did you stop to read the bill that the california assembly actually passed?”
It wasn’t included in the article that I posted. Feel free to inform us what words of wisdom the overwhelming leftist California Assembly bestowed upon us.
Was this the one where they wanted to rename the "Asian Carp" because it was derogatory and offensive to Asians?
Representatives are based on the number of citizens. With California’s population tepidly becoming devoid of citizens, shouldn’t they lose a few representatives? Seems like they wouldn’t wield so much power with fewer reps or few electoral votes.
Thank the democrat politicians in Sacramento for running the state into the ground by their taking from the pockets of the working American citizens and running successful business out of the state by over regulations and taxes. They then give it to the illegals both in and out of prison as well as funnel millions to the unions, all so they can get reelected to stay in power as to perpetuate their scam. Anchor babies away!!! Sounds like DC.
No, Representatives are based on "the whole number of persons in each State." (U.S. Constitution, 14th Amendment, section 2). So aliens, legal and illegal, are counted in a state's population for purposes of apportioning Representatives.
The measure of a man is what he does with power.
“Representatives are based on the number of citizens. With Californias population tepidly becoming devoid of citizens, shouldnt they lose a few representatives? “
The only people we are losing are Americans. We replace them with illegal aliens from the third world so the population stays the same or even increases.
And since no one is interested in making sure only Americans vote there is no reason to reduce the number of Congressmen from California.
You understand the situation here exactly.
The Census Bureau made it clear they're counting everyone, not just citizens.
Thus, Latin America will control a good chunk of the House of Representatives even if California is depopulated of citizens.
The bulk of California is actually conservative that have fallen for fad type politics. The leeches that are allowed to vote will be in for a big awakening soon. BOzocare will begin the reversal of the trend.
With close to 40 million people that’s a long way off.
I’ll cry two tears in a bucket.
Exactly as the Constitution requires. Under section 2 of the 14th Amendment, only "citizens of the United States" can vote for memebers of Congress, but Representatives are apportioned based on "the whole number of persons in each State."
"The state is fast becoming a colony and milk cow for Mexico, with a few enclaves occupied by Asians the way the British used to dominate Hong Kong and Singapore."
I am finally ready to leave. I was born here and would have likes to stay here in Paradise forever. But I can’t afford paradise any more, and there are more and more home invasions in paradise.
Any freepers in denver?
