Posted on 07/16/2018 7:38:50 AM PDT by rktman
California has long been known as the land of fruits and nuts a mentality that permeates every aspect of life there and it never ends.
The latest fiascoes involve law and order or at least, what one would assume deals with the law and the orderly adherence to it. But this is California were talking about, and like Alice through the Looking Glass, nothing is what it seems.
The state has passed gun-control laws, laws regulating items purchased, requiring ammunition identification that is impossible to do, and even changing the laws to reduce the penalties for crimes.
Its all been a gigantic failure.
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the state has adopted a wide array of gun control laws since July 1, 1993 banning assault weapons, limiting ammunition magazines to 10 rounds and requiring background checks for ammunition purchases.
But the California mass shootings went on, in 2014, 2016, 2017 and twice in 2018.
So much for more laws.

That’s why we call them ‘criminals’!.....................
The latest law which was slipped into the last budget allows for ‘diversion’ of anyone accused of a crime who can claim a mental health issue that is verified by a therapist. Got a DUI you’re dealing with? You drink because you were abused as a child by drunks - go to your county mental health program, and once completed, your crime is wiped away.
Killed someone? Must be because you’re having trouble coming to terms with your sexual identity. Complete the diversion program therapy and you’ve got a get out of jail card (and no conviction.)
I feel for every DA in California, and doubly so for every California county which will have to create zillions of diversion programs once the criminal defense attorneys start pushing their clients into these programs.
(There’s yet to be any court challenges to this law which I will expect especially when it goes up against things like ‘three strikes’ and other sentence enhancement laws. As written, it appears to compel the court to accept diversion if the mental illness is in the mental health manual prior to proceedings continuing - that may entirely preempt the three strikes enhancements as completion of the diversion negates the original arrest.)
Nah, just midguided. ;-) Like hildabeast and the server. They didn’t mean to rob the place. It just happened. Right?
If I ever get in trouble, I gotta remember that..............
California: A state that sanctions the murder of its citizens by foreign invaders. Actually New York is the same, New York city specifically. 3 weeks ago a gang made up of illegals - protected by the way by the sanctuary city policies of the Mayor - butchered a 15 year old to death. Rather than call the victims family to offer condolences, Mayor Bill DeBlasio called for ICE to be abolished. This is a Mayor openly and blatantly assisting foreign invaders kill US citizens and incredibly they reelected this asshole.
Demonrats call them “voters”
Does anyone wonder what these people have to gain by destroying the USA?
Good to know Barbara Simpson is still around. Ive been a fan of hers for years.
Graham, Alexander, Rubio, Hoeven, McCain and Murkowsky were all re-elected after they tried to give citizenship to illegal aliens.
That’s what is incredible.
I expect NYers to vote stupidly.
Adopt a gun both of you will be safer.
“The voters share the blame for the increase in out-of-control crime in the state. In 2014, voters passed Proposition 47, which was touted as a criminal justice reform measure. It cut penalties for certain lower level crimes. The East Bay Times called it a leap of faith. Yeah it was that all right, and the result has been a surge in car break-ins, shoplifting and other property crimes.
Every single law enforcement officer Ive talked with says the same thing: There are more crimes and more people walking away from them.”
For me, the result of this Proposition is that we now have to have a number of security cameras that awaken us at home in the middle of night because we have one or more persons at our commercial office building “taking up residence” there to sleep, shoot up, take a $hit/pi$$ on the stairway, plug in their electric blanket, charge their personal electronic device, unscrew the light bulbs, etc. So we call the cops and thanks to this “new law,” they simply tell the people to leave. They tell us that a major portion of their calls for service involve the removal of ‘transients.”
In two years of video monitoring, we have only seen one arrest. The “transient” had an outstanding warrant.
The people who vote like that are putting the lives of their kids directly in harms way. We got tons of these foreign gangs in the country like MS-13 or the Trinitarios targeting children and killing them, just like yesterday with the one gang member BEHEADING the 13 year old disabled child in Alabama. This is foreign gangs killing people with the full assistance of the Democratic party and their voters and I directly blame the media who are not telling people the facts. As outrageous as this attack is, they will give it scant attention.........
Graham and Alexander come up for re-election in 2020.
We need to prepare now to replace them with patriots.
We cannot keep re-electing Amnesty Senators and expect anything but Amnesty.
Hello Barbra Simpson.
A lot of us terrestrial AM radio listeners still miss you on the local dial. KSFO and KGO could certainly use you now, although Cumulus has too much pride to ever admit their mistake. You are one of the greats.
Hi Barbara, wherever you are...
I agree with the above sentiment 100%.
As an escapee from Perverts-by-the Bay, I am glad that you are still active.
If you are still on radio, any chance that we, in the CA Central Valley can catch your program?
Over the air or on line, doesn't matter.
