Should the New Sign Read -Welcome to California. Come and enjoy our polluted beaches and polluted thinking?

The state of California has enough oil and potential proceeds to fund gay marriage, clean needle exchanges for addicts, drug legalization, invisibility cloaks, tattoo abatement, gang reeducation, freeway repaving and whatever other bizarre policies political trollops can come up with. IF WE ONLY TAP IT.
I wasn’t kidding; the amount of tar on the beaches of Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties is massive. At first, you think the flecks and globs of tar are burnt wood chips, but in reality, it's oil, accumulating at the waterline -- hey doesn’t someone call that pollution? The SEA FLOOR IS LEAKING oil and we cannot touch it -- hello?
Mother nature is our biggest polluter.
And still California politicians would rather have us vote to fund the government by allowing them to borrow on future lottery sales, tapping the children’s mental health fund, and increasing gas taxes, taxes on tires, and taxes on sporks at Taco Bell?

  • California needs to be left alone to fix themselves in order to wake up. These band aids of waste and corruption need to stop.

  • Wow, I grew up in California.

    And while I definitely miss the weather, I do not miss the politics.

  • Now, lets be nice about California. They mean well. While that is the land of "lets be green" they are also the land of fake (can you spell Hollywood, outrageous personal spending, incredible personal debt and fake boobs, fake sex, fake life, etc etc.)
