Watch It Closely, For It Is What Would Have Happened If We Had Elected “Empress” Hillary As the US President…
Opinion by “Deplorable” Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen
California is the State that made Childhood Vaccines Mandatory. SB 277 passed with ease. At first we thought Big Pharma was responsible – but then another story emerged.
Yes, Big Pharma put up shiploads of election money to Democrats to get the bill passed. But that Pharma money wasn’t the deciding factor for the legislature – it was the fact that the State Health Department would get SO MUCH MORE MONEY from the Center for Disease Control (CDC). Hence there would be MORE money for State Employees.
Hard to believe, but – The decision to pass SB 277 was made in a California Employee Union office. California has its own version of the “Deep State” Trump promised to shut down.
Liberal Democrats CANNOT govern. California is proof of that.
Here they have what’s called a super-majority in the legislature. They have even passed a law outlawing the Two-Party System. It is a “Democrats only” State – and it shows.
In reality the California governor and the legislature are powerless. Every decision, on every policy, has to be approved by “The Blob” Public Employee Unions. EVERY one.
A first-quarter national Cost of Living (COS) Survey shows that it costs a resident of California 50.8% MORE to live in California than Texas. Except for Hawaii, which has to import almost everything, California has the highest Cost of Living in the nation – and it is going to get FAR WORSE starting in October of 2017 when the new twenty cents per gallon gas tax, and 50% increase in vehicle registration fees, begins.
California is DESPERATE for money.
They have to keep feeding “The Blob” and they are running out of income sources. Let’s look at the details, as shown to us by a January 2017 article by the California Policy Center called:
California’s Government Workers Make TWICE As Much as Private Sector Workers
Earlier today the California Policy Center released a study that provided facts about government compensation. It examined state and local payroll data provided online by the California State Controller and proved that the average pay and benefits for a full-time state/local government employee in 2015 was $121,843.
At the same time, the study found that the average pay and benefits for a full-time private sector worker in California in 2015 was half that much, $62,475.
Moreover, the study found that if the pensions these state/local workers have been promised were being properly funded, their actual pay and benefits in 2015 would have averaged $139,691. And that elevated figure still didn’t take into account the impact of properly pre-funding their supplemental retirement health care, nor did it normalize for their myriad paid days off – typically including 14 paid holidays, 12 “personal days” and 20 or more vacation days as they acquire seniority. And let’s not forget the “9/80” program, common in California government but virtually unheard of in the private sector, where public sector salaried professionals can skip a few lunches and show up a few minutes early or depart a few minutes late each workday, and take 26 additional days a year off with pay because, every two weeks, they worked “nine hour days for nine days, then took the tenth day off.”
If you’re not counting, that adds up to 72 days off per year with pay for a seasoned public sector professional. The study didn’t take that into account.
The “Average” California Government Employee Made $139,691 dollars per year in 2015?
And took 72 days off, not including weekends, with pay?
In another interesting article the California Policy Center says:
In Search of Heroes
“California is not just any “blue state.” By many measures, California is a blue nation. It boasts the world’s sixth largest economy, isolated from the rest of the nation by mountains and deserts that were virtually impassable before modern times. It is blessed with diverse industries, abundant natural resources, and the most attractive weather in North America. California is nearly a nation unto itself.
And it is an occupied nation. California is ruled by a coalition of monopolistic businesses, public sector unions, and the environmentalist lobby. These Occupiers control a Democratic super-majority in the state legislature, as well as nearly all of California’s major cities, counties and school boards. To enrich and empower themselves, the Occupiers have oppressed California’s dwindling middle class and small business sectors, and condemned millions more to poverty and dependence.
For the average working family, no state in America is harder to live in than California. It has the highest cost-of-living, the highest taxes, the most onerous regulations, one of the worst systems of public education, congested freeways and failing infrastructure.
Even REAL Liberals Are Concerned…
Reason.com, back in 2012, said in an article titled:
How Big Government Is Killing California…
Four million more people have left California for other states than have come here from other states in the past two decades, according to demographer Joel Kotkin. The population growth has been coming mainly from immigrants and births from people already living here, but now the USC study shows that immigrants are going elsewhere. A cynic might say that California’s liberal elites have ended the state’s contentious battles over illegal immigration by destroying opportunities here.
Kotkin, an old-time liberal, sees troubling trends. “Basically, if you don’t own a piece of Facebook or Google and you haven’t robbed a bank and don’t have rich parents, then your chances of being able to buy a house or raise a family in the Bay Area or in most of coastal California is pretty weak,” he said in a recent Wall Street Journal interview. “The new regime wants to destroy the essential reason why people move to California in order to protect their own lifestyles.” He says the state is run for the benefit of the very rich, the very poor, and public employees.
This is not a healthy society. And the demographic changes point to an aging population. Far from reducing the burdens on the state government, this will increase them. State officials are not building to meet future needs, but they have been squandering future dollars on excessive pay and pension packages for public employees. Look for a coming battle between services for lower-income Californians and retirement benefits for the most powerful special interest group in the state, public employees.
But Trump has initiated an Election Fraud Commission…
Formally called “The Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity,” Trump’s election fraud investigatory group, formed just last week, is scaring the crap out of liberal Democrats nationwide. They are suing in seven different areas, DESPERATELY, trying to hide election records. Why? If they have nothing to hide what’s the problem?
In California there is almost an uprising against the Democrats.
You can’t turn on the radio without hearing ANGER about the new gas tax. Already there is a Ballot Initiative coming. Some areas have recall elections scheduled.
But the biggest single item you here about is about the 2.1 million Illegal Immigrants that voted in the last election – all for Hillary (imagine that?). And nobody has yet mentioned the Democratic party STANDARD – the voting of the dead people.
California is going to be a RED State by the end of 2018 – watch. How? We are only going to allow the counting of election ballots of citizens who are registered and ALIVE, and ONLY ONCE. That will make a HUGE difference.
