Recently, it was the state's authoritarian move...|
|10/21/2015 - The state of California, ruled for decades by regressive liberalism, is a riddle, wrapped in a question surrounded by an enigma, as the saying goes. Little of what takes place there, in terms of public policy, makes much sense to the outside world (and probably not much sense even to many living there).
|10/16/2015 - It's now legal in California — a state that abhors the death penalty for violent criminals, child molesters and rapists — to kill yourself or, more specifically, to request death and actually have it carried out.

As reported by TheAntiMedia.com,...|
|9/12/2015 - Back in March, the mainstream media began running wild reports warning the public about supposedly dangerous levels of inorganic arsenic in California wines.

|8/28/2015 - As the years-long drought continues in California, a combination of water shortages, price hikes and state conservation measures has led to an upsurge in tattling in the form of drought shaming – the practice of outing persons publicly who are abusing water or breaking conservation rules.

|8/7/2015 - As California's drought stretches on and more and more wells go dry, demand is higher than ever for "water witches," people who are able to locate underground water using only a rod or stick and their own intuition.

|7/10/2015 11:51:10 AM - The Constitution – or, rather, limitations that the Constitution places on government – doesn't matter much these days to many of our elected officials.

|7/8/2015 - The problem with Left-wing social engineering policies is that, despite their stated goal of ensuring "equality," someone – some group – always has to endure discrimination.

|5/7/2015 - The only proof you need that many Californians are still living in a water fairy tale is the fact that California real estate prices haven't yet collapsed.

First, a little...|
