California Is Hypocritical - And Response

Tuesday, June 27, 2017

Re:  Roy Exum: California's Foolishness

This is the ridiculousness that has always been California, land of fools and the extremist liberal hypocrite state. ("We" can punish "you" because "we" don't like what "you" stand for but don't punish "me" because "you" don't like what "we" stand for.) 

Dear California, please drop anchor somewhere else because you're a large portion of what's wrong with America's current mental state.

I'm sure we would "all" be much better off, plus this way you could live in your fantasy world while we live in the real one.

My good friend Roy certainly hit the nail on the head with his piece on Kalifornia. Hard to believe 30 years ago it was the national model for all the states to follow. Then the Democrats took over and just like Detroit, Chicago, Illinois, Baltimore and other places run by Dems it has declined in every aspect of livability. 

California leads the nation in pollution with six of the most polluted cities: Bakersfield, Visalia, Fresno, Modesto, San Francisco and Los Angeles. 

In the most recent Nation's Report Card it placed 48th, ahead of only DC, New Mexico and Alabama and behind Mississippi. 

In the most recent Mercatus rating of the fiscal condition of states, California was 44th. 

I would suggest that California might authorize funding for its employees to visit Republican states and they might actually learn how to run a state.

Protect The Dreamers - And Response

Children of illegal immigrants brought here as juveniles should be able to stay here.  When these children were brought to the U.S. they did not, willingly with any intent, violate immigration laws. They were too young to even know what immigration laws were. For many, this is the only home they have ever known. Now, as educated and otherwise law abiding young adults, it ... (click for more)

Coyote Jack's Won't Close

It is a shame that both Ms. James and Ms. Madhue will be disappointed when they are told that this establishment will not be closing; regardless of its deadly past.  Why, you ask?  Well, if as the article states that both Bella Vita and Coyote Jack’s are under the same ownership, that ownership lies within the hands, at least partially, by the Berke family.  Yes, ...

EPB Video As Percentage Of Fiber Customers Going Down, But That's Fine With Management

With more and more video customers turning to streaming options, EPB's video is dropping as a percentage of overall fiber customers. But that's fine with EPB management, knowing that all that video streaming needs a wide fiber pipeline to go through. EPB is positioned with the best "gig" service. Greg Eaves, chief financial officer, said 65 percent of EPB fiber customers now ... (click for more)

Howard Scores Career-High 41 In All-America Type Effort As Bradley Beats McMinn, 69-43

ATHENS, Tenn. – Bradley Central’s Rhyne Howard made no bones about it. She was extremely disappointed not making the McDonald’s All-America team announced earlier this week. And McMinn County’s Lady Cherokees paid a heavy price for Howard’s frustration. With the second-ranked Bearettes coming out of halftime with a shaky 30-24 lead and not playing their best basketball, ... (click for more)

East Hamilton Makes 'Short' Work Of Tyner

To say the East Hamilton basketball squad made short work of visiting Tyner Academy Friday night would be a bit of an understatement.   The Hurricanes made 24 shots in the 62-49 non-region battle victory in a game matching two of the area’s better squads and all but three of those makes came within a foot or so of the basket.  You heard that right: ...
