I am not shy about calling out California Republicans every chance I get. I have no issue with pointing out what a weak campaign John Cox ran and how much I do not want him running again for fear of another rollover and die campaign against his Highness King Noodles.

I started to lose my cool this past week when the CAGOP sent out an email requesting money. They came up with a cute meme (which I believe was stolen from some other content creator) and told Republicans to print off the meme and take a picture with and make…


With the 2020 Presidential election behind us, while not out of mind of course, political pundits and observers begin to set their sights on the next big election in California, 2022. In 2022, King Newsom will be up for reelection. I am sure there are many out there who feel the King will win easily as the Democrats hold a 2–1 advantage over Republicans in the Golden State. However, this election looks to be much different than 2018.

In 2018, Republicans were successful in getting John Cox on the ballot. A surprising feat indeed that took the nation by surprise…

I am a big fan of Christmas. I love the sights and the sounds and the general feeling during the magical time of the year. Thus I take my Christmas celebrations very seriously and feel that anything that tarnishes the holiday should not be considered for all intensive purposes “Christmas.”

One of the most hotly debated topics around this time of year is what are your favorite Christmas movies. Without fail, people present their lists and someone always includes the movie “Die Hard.”

Now this article is not going to be solely on “Die Hard” but for the purposes of…

In a recent article from the National Review entitled smugly “Californians Not as Crazy as We Thought?” They dive into the interesting results from the 2020 election.

Outside of the national election, there are still results and indications of where California is going as a state with its electorate.

In the National Review article, they point out that in a surprising manner, Californians when confronted with proposition ballot measures that are for lower taxes and free market, they actually support them.

Take for example Prop 15 which sought to raise property taxes on commercial properties. It’s no surprise every election…

Watching the news you may have seen the Michigan protests and now the Minnesota protests playing out in the state’s capitals. For some it’s an impressive show of patriotism for those citizens who were tired of being restrained with such draconian measures, while others believe it is irresponsible to be defying the government in such a time.

I have found that in this trying time the Constitution is not the only place to look for your rights during this time of rapid government overreach and expansion. …

I saw a meme the other day and I laughed because it was the first thing I thought when this whole pandemic really broke upon our shores. The meme simply says “How are you all enjoying your free 30 day trial of socialism?” and I chuckled only because it was so eerily true.

In a presidential election where the word socialism continues to become more popular and out and open candidates like Bernie Sanders and AOC run the Democratic Party, socialism has been claimed to be the cure for all the ills of our society. They stand up and say…

In news that should surprise no one, our new Governor Gavin Newsom has already shown his true colors as a human being. Only a few weeks as Governor and Newsom already has plans to move his family out of the Governor’s Mansion Sacramento and into a $3.7 million six-bedroom home in Fair Oaks California.

In a story published the LA Times a spokesman for the Governor said; “They will move their four kids, two dogs and bunny rabbit in a few months…They love being a permanent part of the Sacramento community and are excited about living, working and raising a…

Much has been written about the meteoric rise of Alexandria Ocasio Cortez in the past year (now affectionally referred to as “AOC”). She was an outsider, a political unknown who was able to knock off an establishment political figure in what should have been a cakewalk primary for him. After that, she was pretty much guaranteed ascendance to a Congressional seat.

Now, as much as political pundits like to make fun of AOC and her ideals. Her lack of common economic sense and ability to account for money that the United States simply does not have does not stop her…

I mean, think about it, how can they? When they gleefully vote for idiotic measures such as Prop 6 which kept gas prices high, or when they virtue signaled their love for animal rights when they voted for Prop 12 which would end up raising the price of food in California, mainly eggs which will all have to be cage free by 2022.

In the lounges, coffee shops, and hookah bars of coastal cities, these measures seem like they are only one step closer to the leftist Utopian society which is what they dream of. …

The issue of student loan debt is one that seems to come up every four years during a Presidential race to see who has the best solution. Solutions are thrown around in attempts to attract millennial voters who are the biggest voting bloc suffering under the weight of student loan debt. Usually, the solutions range from student loan forgiveness to renegotiated terms of the loans. Whatever they are, they usually seem to fall to the bottom of the pile when it comes time for the elected President to get to work.

But the issue of student loan debt is not…
