“Calexit”, the response to reasonable Americans voting against the demands of a few spoiled brats, not wishes, mind you, demands. Spurred on by two central valley libs, they now have some 16+k signatories. There are two points of interest just to begin. 1) There are 39 million Californians; most won’t give up a single lunch, let alone all the stuff they receive from our dear old Uncle Sam. 2) The two founders of this secessionist drive are from the mostly conservative central valley and not one of the mush-brain factory college cities. One claimed to be republican but voted for Clinton. I claimed, in response to that, “BULLSHIT“! I’m guessing they couldn’t afford to live in the cities they came from and ended up commuters.
If there are any who wonder, “can this happen?“, or, wish it would; this, or efforts like this one, have failed gloriously in the past. A Silly Valley bigwig suggested making 6 states from the one back in 2009. This effort was laughed off the ballot. There also has been a push for the State of Jefferson since I can remember, driven by residents of California’s central valley, northern Californians and southern Oregonians who most certainly are NOT represented in liberal Sacramento or insane Portlandia (too bad we don’t have electoral colleges for the states, eh?). In the end, the cost to secede overwhelms all.
It’s estimated we Californians receive some $275 billion from Uncle Sam annually. Divide that by 39 million. I’m sure you, the average Californian, have that sum hanging around just in case Jerry or Garvin might need it to start up a new country, right? I have a few additional questions, too. Who builds up a military for us and who pays for it? Or do we just sit back and wait for Mexico to take over? Who’s fixing the roads then? What about Social Security, Medicare, food stamps, etc.? Where do we get the money uncle is going to demand in refunds for all the infrastructure built on federal funding? Sure as heck we can’t borrow it from the high-speed train to nowhere fund, can we? There ain’t nothin there! And let’s not forget, who the heck do you think is paying for those free iPhones and Tablets? It ain’t Jerry-fekkin-Brown my friend. I could go on forever. Suffice it to say, secession is NOT happening…likely, not ever.
So, what is all this about? The usual, I would guess. A bunch of spoiled brats don’t want to accept that their team lost, so they push back in the only way they know. They do nothing and things that amount to nothing because that is what their parent’s example taught them. These are not “normal” Californians or Americans but the byproduct of the hippie movement and some angry inner city folks. They must be our very own useless idiots chasing a cause because they can. Otherwise, to spend days, months even years on such unattainable goals is surely indicative of mental illness. Funny how most of their hippie parents, in fact, ended up as integral parts of the very establishment they purportedly were against back in the 60’s, without ever effecting any change at all, except that they became the “new guard”. Now, their children are burning down cities, stopping traffic causing an ambulance passenger to die, and killing cops. I’m not sure who the joke is on with that one, but, I digress anyway.
Regardless, California is going nowhere. We are as much America as Massachusetts and the Carolinas. The greatest president in recent history came from here. We are still one of the largest economic engines in the world, outperforming hundreds of entire nations (…not forgetting our status as a great economic power; still, we could never afford the initial costs of secession). Besides, until I give my approval, “Them dang idgits can go fish! Yessuh!” Calexit my hiney!
California will comply as usual as soon as those few boisterous idiots finish pissing their pants. Calexit is one idiot’s dream, the rioting and violence are another altogether. I really wish mommy and daddy would put their foot down. If your children happen to fit the mould, and you know if they do, stop paying for their education and make them earn it, even just one lousy semester. This is our problem, IMO. Some of our children don’t know the cost of life. They will continue to fuck it up until they do. You can’t spank them anymore, so charge them. This will also eliminate a large pool of mush-brains for the bloodsuckers in society to prey on like the two yahoos in Central Valley and greatly reduce the period of mush-brainedness for most. Work does that.
In the meantime, more useless idiot’s like the one from a local, freelance editorial group called, wait for it…”The Watchdog”, are continuing to rake Trump and his millions of supporters, the Electoral Majority (thank God), over the coals. Thomas Peele is his name. He has a twitter thingy, check it out. His pic will scare the piss out of you too. Mr Peele had absolutely nothing good to say about us deplorable ones.
Here’s an example of what passes as reporting today. The story was actually about how Trump once liked a reporter…then became, well, Trump, I guess, and that’s just a terrible thing, you see. The story immediately showed it’s true colours of hatred and denial by bashing Trump and all supporters first, then telling the actual story about Trump and the reporter. This is an excerpt from the HEADLINE editorial of the East Bay Times:
Trump got elected on fake news, his cudgel-like tweets, truth be damned, and on the backs of xenophobic, alt-right white supremacists, who think news is what they politically believe. All else? Lies!
So, obviously I missed the part when we became xenophobes instead of misogynists, (and whatever happened to just plain deplorable?) but that’s not the important thing here, it’s it? No, certainly what we need to beware of is allowing gasbags like Peele from having any more influence on the neo-mush-brained (of which we have an excessive amount here in Cali) than an occasional fill-in role for a real reporter, and limit that as much as possible. This guy is not only pissed off and very disrespectfully displaying it, he’s a damn loon. Sadly, I can easily compare this pissed-off-white-guy to many more folks, in varying flavours, just like him, and they all want their 15 seconds right now. To these folks, there is no alternative to their vision.
I think the biggest surprise for me has been the left’s propensity to believe theirs is the only legitimate thought process. That everyone else is wrong. More than that, and most damaging to them, they believed that those they believe to be “wrong”, are also in the minority by a huge amount. That it was the left’s destiny to lead us forward. They are still stuck on this belief and like this dolt, Thomas Peele, will continue to hack at us with hatred until we hack him and those like him off at the knees. Free speech is free speech and should never be suppressed. Speaking or writing hate is a crime against humanity and shouldn’t be tolerated from anyone. I could go on about “what’s good for the goose”…etc., but I feel it would fall on deaf ears.
What’s the real solution? Simple, don’t publish stupid hateful shit. Come on, now!
NOTE TO THE LOCAL NEWS OUTLETS: You wouldn’t publish my rants as leading editorials would you? In fact, you don’t publish me anymore at all and I don’t really expect you to publish this one either. So, why publish that trash? East Bay Times, I’m calling you out. Stop instigating and enriching this anarchist environment. Stop publishing this HATE! In doing so you become the enemy of a free state, yourself, by advocating the squelching of half the population’s free speech. If you instigate anarchy, you will die by it. There is no free press in a war zone, fools.
The following is the emoticon I chose for how I feel about all this!
