Politics is a horrible topic…but…..our venerable Governor Gavin Newsom must be feeling guilty, his liberal policies created the many homeless. Many of them worked, payed taxes and were the citizens that helped build the California economy. He and his constituents managed to transfer that money to newcomers who gladly received the housing, medical, and other benefits that THEY did not work for…. Now the homeless live in tents on the sidewalks of this once great state.. Now he will spend billions of dollars to supposedly try to fix that problem.
This is what happens when you vote a drunken sailor to spend your tax dollars….let’s hope he doesn’t raise our taxes again…. yea right………..

It’s a drunken party of Dems on our tax dollar. He is just the pinnacle of the party that has ruined this once great state

I’m interested in what policies specifically caused the homeless population to rise in California.

Can you provide some actual information on that claim?

Captain Bebops January 18, 2020 at 10:05 AM

Newsom did this overnight? You must be kidding. I doubt if Newsom wants to see an increasing homeless population. Most politicians want a decreasing one. Everyone should have a home. More likely it was greedy corporations who created the problem. There also would be a small percentage who needed *good* psychiatric care not the joke the field is giving them nowadays that are also wandering the streets homeless.

Liberal politicians like Newsom do not care about human life much less the American citizens they represent. They only care about political power, securing future votes and having citizens dependent on government to survive. Watching these knuckleheads in Sacramento is like watching an episode of Romper Room.

When you supply free services to them you get a influx of others coming in to take advantage of it. When you coddle the drug addicts instead of holding them accountable table for there actions you draw in more. The list goes on

Captain Bebops January 18, 2020 at 1:57 PM

Mojo, the same can be said of conservative politicians. It’s all about the money. When the government of this country was formed they figured at some point things would become totally corrupt. Jefferson said at that point we’d need to start over again.

james January 18, 2020 at 11:18 PM

Figure it out Yogurt,people with no money come to Calif because they heard its the place to go for a free life,and the weather is good enough to camp outside and they don’t need too pay rent,they can spent any money they beg borrow or steal on drugs and alcohol,woo hoo,California,its just one big party!!!And it’s free!!!
(cue Edgar Winter’s “come on and take a free ride !”)

james January 18, 2020 at 12:20 AM

Aww,arent you special…….
where will these votes come from?

Bill Cutting January 18, 2020 at 9:28 AM

That’s a good question James even though I know you’re being condescending the commonsense answer is to remove the parasites. Next step is to understand that legal immigration is a bigger issue than illegal immigration in the sense that the people that we are importing here are voting 75% Democrat. This has been going on for 55 Years. And it’s not like we’re importing the best of the best anymore we dropped our standards in 1965 we are basically imported our doom. Solution may be too late politically and You just sit and watch people because resources will start drying up look at the housing around here

Gittyup January 18, 2020 at 4:17 PM

When illegals won’t even bother to learn the language. nor care to assimilate into the society, you can be sure that in a generation our rights granted under the Constitution will be routinely ignored. It is in the act of becoming a citizen legally that immigrants are educated as to our system of government, our way of life, and decide then and swear to abide by the laws that govern the nation. They must meet stringent requirements to enter. Those who enter illegally have varying stages of ignorance about the laws that govern the land and have very little reason, therefore, to observe them. We have a system whereby one emigrates legally and they are not observing that process right out of the gate setting them on the wrong path immediately.

“Totally normal for the President of the United States to name two attorneys who worked for pedophile Jeffrey Epstein to his Senate impeachment defense team.”

The Fearless Spectator January 18, 2020 at 6:41 PM

Robert Shapiro was busy selling Legalzoom and Johnny Cochran is deceased. “If the White house telephone headset does not fit you must acquit”.

james January 18, 2020 at 11:14 PM

So nobody was able to use any lawyer that Charles Manson used?Obama hired someone that was a defense attorney for one of the 911 terrorists.What are you saying?More double standards being dreamt up by the left?Thank you.
Jefrrey Epstein is convicted pedophile?Do you know how the court system works?You and Ozzie should be buddies.

Ozzie January 19, 2020 at 10:10 AM

Jackie Childs is still available.

Rollo Tomasi January 19, 2020 at 11:57 AM

And the President is the wrong color for John Burris.

Hope Johnson January 18, 2020 at 12:09 PM

Lack of support for your opening premise. No evidence innate equality exists only in the presence of God, “god,’ or any of the other multiple deities.

But, still true that equality established by human institutions is subject to the human condition. That’s why its great the Constitution provides for protection of rights and built in some checks and balances to account for injustices. Doesn’t have to be all or nothing, and allows for room to recognize the ability to bring equality to all people and life great and small, male and female, rich and poor, black and white, and everyone in-between any description (even if some founders did so unintentionally).

There was an ‘atheist” on “CoasttoCoast”” a couple nights ago…When asked which is easier: Lucid Dreaming or Astral Projection?,” He answered : “Oh God!… Astral Projection!”

There is nothing new about race-hustlers. In his 1911 work, “My Larger Education,” Booker T. Washington wrote: “There is a class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. … There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don’t want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public.”

Rollo Tomasi January 21, 2020 at 7:58 AM

Interesting contrast. While perusing YouTube videos, I came across these two videos, both with the same subject matter. The titles of the videos serve as an insight, in my opinion, into why trust in the media is generally down.

A local Virginia NBC affiliate posted a video titled “Thousands gather for pro-gun rally in Richmond, VIrginia”

CBS News posted a video with the title “Thousands surround Virginia State Capital Building to protest new gun control legislation”.

“Surround”? Why is it that two networks covering the exact same event have such divergent ways of describing it?

Kirkwood January 21, 2020 at 10:09 AM

It’s kinda like one side says Trump walks on water, and the other says Trump can’t swim.

Gittyup January 21, 2020 at 4:47 PM

For a rally that went remarkably peacefully considering all the hype beforehand, sounds like CBS News might have a “siege” mentality that colors its reporting.

Rollo Tomasi January 21, 2020 at 10:38 PM

I hadn’t seen that story. Thanks Atticus.

Silva January 24, 2020 at 5:01 PM

Yeah, thank you Atticus Thraxx. They sure showed everyone how it’s done!

Rollo Tomasi January 21, 2020 at 8:59 AM

I’m looking forward to the traditional Super Bowl bet between the mayors of the respective cities. Perhaps the mayor of Kansas City will bet ten pounds of Kansas City barbecue if the 49ers win against the SF mayor’s bet of a ten pound bag of human feces and used needles if the Chiefs win.

A vote based on the color of one’s skin is an ignorant racist vote.
A vote based on one’s gender is an ignorant sexist vote.
A vote based on only one, or ever two, issues is the vote of an ignorant fool.
Are you one of these?
How do you vote?
Which are you?

Gittyup January 22, 2020 at 9:15 PM

I only vote for the candidate with the Irish last name. If there’s no candidate with an Irish last name, I vote for the blonde. 😎

Gittyup January 22, 2020 at 9:20 PM

@Abbie R. Lol

HappyPappy January 23, 2020 at 9:09 AM

So…….after three years of investigations, the Muller circus falling flat, that phony Russian business, the illegal FISA crap, here’s what Shifty really wants from the Senate; Please give us evidence to make our case.
Good grief, could he be more pathetic?

Good satire there showing great wit.

‘When illegals won’t even bother to learn the language.etc, etc, etc.”
Good comment there showing great wisdom.

Happy Pappy, Thanks!

Coming soon to a home near you! No problem. Your kids can pay your medical bills. And it will open the door for big pharmaceutical and insurance companies to make waaaay more money! Good going little monster!

Trump Opens Door to Cuts to Medicare and Other Entitlement Programs

The president signaled a willingness to scale back Medicare, a shift from his 2016 platform of protecting entitlement programs.

Gittyup January 24, 2020 at 6:13 PM

Biden has in the past talked about doing the same thing.

Ozzie January 24, 2020 at 6:40 PM

Biden isn’t President.

Gittyup January 24, 2020 at 4:27 PM

It appears that Democrats simply couldn’t stand the fact that the market was up and the economy was humming along quite nicely. So, they thought and they thought and decided they could throw a monkey wrench into the whole thing by orchestrating a highly dramatic, theatrically intense, and ever so sketchy “impeachment” of the President even though they really didn’t have any evidence he had committed the “high crimes and misdemeanors” required. We can only hope that once their sideshow is complete and the President cleared of these fabricated charges, the market will rebound before the economy suffers from their obviously foolish and misguided.decisions. At that point, they might want to consider mass Democratic exorcisms to expel the devils with which they appear to be possessed. It is the only reasonable explanation for their bizarre behavior since Trump was elected.

Thirty-four US soldiers have been diagnosed with concussion or traumatic brain injury from an 8 January Iranian missile attack on their base in Iraq, the Pentagon has revealed.
