Really California? I know you elected Governor Moon Beam because pot was legal and y’all can get so wasted that your brain cells melt together into a funky cinnamon flavored tapioca pudding, but this one almost takes the cake (sorry, bad phrasing, I know y’all get the munchies all the time out there):
The story at the link above from the San Diego Times Union really blows my mind. The idiots in California are going to raise gasoline taxes 10% (approximately 3.5 cents) at a time when their state is floundering on the edges of a major economic depression and transportation and manufacturing interests outside of the state and within are looking to relocate or pare back service to mitigate losses.
Between the envirowhacko movement, obtrusive regulation, and almost police state anti-corporate attitude of the liberal elites and what is coming from Washington, D.C. there is little incentive to live, work, or visit the state of California unless one wishes to visit an American version of Greece. Before the year is out, do not be shocked if the cities of that state look something like a European nightmare with riot police beating and arresting protesters while anarchists roam the suburbs attacking the average working class person trying to agitate them into action.
What a bunch of maroons.
