The University of California continues to increase its numbers of out-of-state and foreign students to pay full tuition. Each non-Californian pays an extra $23,000 annually, and the UC bean counters like that.
Monday’s Los Angeles Times article did not mention one unsightly ball and chain on UC’s finances, namely the subsidies provided by unwilling taxpayers to [...]
Here in northern California, local TV news has a lot of coverage about the water shortage, which I don’t remember happening during previous droughts. So the situation is bad, with millions more people using water when there is less of it.
True, most of the water supply goes to agriculture, not home faucets, but the farms [...]
In May, I reported hopefully about the California capitol city taking steps to improve its taxi service: Sacramento Requires Diverse Taxi Drivers to Speak English — Protests Follow.
Complaints had been accumulating about unpleasant smells emitted from diverse drivers and poor language skills, including one or two gripes per month from people who ended up at [...]
California continues to stretch the imaginations of non-liberals. One unthinkable policy is Governor Brown’s policy by which thousands of presumably dangerous prisoners originally sentenced by juries to life sentences in the slammer are being set free.
A Friday radio segment on the California Report was downright cheery about cons being released into local communities. The title [...]
The front page of Sunday’s Los Angeles Times headlined with “Laboring in the shadow of recession,” which is actually a story about freelancing out of necessity in the bleak job market. Individual cases of human struggles to survive economically are told along with the some of the societal changes which contribute.
There are a few statistics [...]
The news story of Wednesday’s crazy-violent bank robbery in Stockton has gotten a lot of play here in the Bay Area. Hundreds of shots were fired in a chase and shoot-out with 20 cop cars pursuing the robbers at a high speed through three communities. Two of the three criminals were killed, and one hostage, [...]
The project to divide America’s unwieldy, corrupt state into half a dozen chunks had disappeared from the news in recent months, but now has re-emerged, Phoenix-like, onto the political scene. If the petitions have enough valid signatures then it’s off to the election for the voters to have their say.
Of course, the only area of [...]
A retired doctor and his wife phoned Rush Limbaugh on Tuesday to tell their story about the San Bernardino Catholic church urging members of the parish welcome illegal aliens into their homes. Not only did the archbishop invite parishioners to harbor lawbreakers (a felony, right?) but he also to keep quiet about it to the [...]
Who would have thought that the LA Times would dig up deportation data unfriendly to the administration and then plunk the graph on its Sunday front page? Unlikely, yet it did print a devastating chart:
The deportation figure would have been even more shocking had it been paired with a graph showing the kid surge over [...]
In Murrieta California on Tuesday, friends of American sovereignty physically blocked three government buses carrying illegal aliens that the administration wanted to relocate from south Texas. The buses, holding 140 aliens, were turned back from the planned offloading in Murietta and were instead sent to a Border Patrol station in San Ysidro. So the aliens [...]
The government is transporting diseased aliens around the country, endangering citizens and Border Patrol agents. And if the kids weren’t sick before they arrived, the crowded conditions created by the administration’s amnesty magnet infected them.
Below, a crowded government flop-house for illegal alien kids in Brownsville.
Remember Ellis Island? A major purpose was to detect foreigners with [...]
On Thursday, the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles held a hearing in Oakland to discuss “concerns” of those affected, namely lawbreaking foreigners who have driven in California unlicensed and uninsured for years. Naturally, they want minimal identification required of them, and they want the DLs to be identical to citizens’ licenses (despite the federal requirement [...]
