I recently had dinner with a member of the State Assembly. I was told that the Mileage Tax (that was supported by none other than Ted Gaines) is going to become a reality.
I was also told that the VLF increase of $65 is a done deal. A gas tax hike is a done deal.
Splitting Commercial Property and jacking the property taxes looks likely to pass as well. (This is the “Split-Roll” thing people have talked about for years)
There is a so-called “Snack Tax” that is also up for consideration.
If you were not sick enough – I had a friend send me some info:
SB-18, the Nanny State on Acid Bill. This Bill is so broad and so poorly written on purpose that it literally puts the School System and the State of CA in front of parent’s rights for good. Gun groups even believe that this law could be used to steal children from their parents over Gun Ownership.
Senator Richard Pan, who is the author of SB-18 is on a roll after his forced vaccination bill passed last year. It is my belief that Richard Pan has gone insane and would make a great despot of a small Asian Country.
Pan is also a doctor and as such, believes that Doctors should have little or no oversight and unlimited power over our lives. Not only does SB-18 empower the state, but it also gives doctors even more power to intervene in parenting as well.
So Pan decided to go postal this session:
SB-426, which expands the government’s role in home visits. It has nebulous definitions of what “At-Risk Families” are. AS in, bibles and guns could be included. It also controls more of county budgets (that are already 90% controlled by the state). How does he intend for Government to exert the control? Either do what we say or lose the funding.
SB-487 which strips hospitals of oversight of doctors. It makes it much more difficult for bad doctors to get convicted of a crime related to their surgical practices.
SB-481 allows a doctor to make care decisions for senior patients when there is no health care directive in place or a responsible party available. So, if you have a loved one in a care facility, you had better have an estate plan, and a care directive in place or the doctor in the facility could euthanize them. The bill literally gives a doctor the unilateral ability to declare a patient unfit. This is amazing and is an extension of the Physician Assisted Suicide Bill.
I am wondering if calling Senator Richard Pan, Richard Mengele is more appropriate.
SB-808 gives School Districts complete veto power over Charter Schools. Senator Tony Mendoza is a whore of the Teacher’s Union, so it stands to reason that he’d pay off his master with this gem.
This bill would repeal those provisions authorizing a county board of education or the state board to approve a petition to establish a charter school and would specify that, on and after January 1, 2018, a petition to establish a charter school may not be approved by a county board of education or the state board and may be submitted only to the school district the boundaries within which the charter school would be located. The bill would provide that charter schools operating under a charter approved by a county board of education or the state board may continue to operate under those charters only until the date on which the charter is required to be renewed.
It is my understanding that the John Adams Academy and the Western Sierra Collegiate Academy were both chartered by the Placer County Office of Education. They can both kiss their charters good bye if this passes unless the underlying school boards have had a change of heart.
The bottom line with SB 808 is that it empowers the Teacher’s Unions to spend millions electing their lackeys in to school districts so they can choke off and kill competition.
Existing School Boards with Union Majorities will be able to eliminate Charter Schools wholesale WITH NO RECOURSE FOR THE CHARTER SCHOOL after 1/1/2018.
Gotta love these democrats. Authoritarian to their core.
The last bill I am highlighting is a garden variety Welfare State Bill. This is the latest in a 20 year string of democrat voter recruiting bills that have California harboring 38% of the Welfare Cases in the nation (and rising).
AB-992 Joaquin Arambula – you will now be able to get FREE DIAPERS to go along with your Obamaphone, free health insurance, welfare checks, food stamps, free car… you get my gist.
I remember Joaquin’s dad, Juan Arambula. Juan is part of a near dead breed, a true moderate / conservative democrat. Juan was so disgusted with how far left the dem party in CA had gone, he re-registered Independent and quit the legislature several years ago. Apparently, Joaquin is living off of his last name and little more. (Where have I seen a member of the Assembly with no qualifications other than a last name before?)
BONUS – Extreme Left Wing Militant Homosexual Activist Christian Hating Ricardo Lara has introduced Single Payer Health Insurance in California as a reaction to the deep deep fear the denizens of the welfare state have over repeal and replacement of Obamacare. The state is $100B or more in the hole, but who cares! Ricardo Lara and Richard Pan had they been alive 90 years ago would have been goose-stepping in Moscow or Berlin.
I am wondering why the hell I still live in California.
