California Will Exemplify What Happens When Leftists Are Not Challenge-The Grand Experiment

With prop 25 passing, which allow Democrats to tax whatever they wish with a simple majority, and pretty much a straight Democratic ticket won. The Left here in the Golden State will grow the power of government, embed unions more and more, tax more and more businesses (which will leave for states that lower taxes on them)… you will see how unchecked Democratic power acts. What is your state tax now? Do you know what sites to visit to see how many businesses are coming and leaving this state? What is your property taxes now?

You will see with your own eyes many leave this state and you will understand why — if not now, later it will hit you like a ton of bricks. When other states remove Democrats and put in their place small government conservatives, and California rebuffs the rest of the countries direction, we are set for a grand experiment.  Will California’s economic position (when compared to countries would be the 11th most economically prosperous) increase or decrease in its economic standing? Will sanctuary cities increase or decrease? Will retirement packages increase in their worth for state and union workers? Or will they be repackaged so that the state becomes more broke?

All these are pertinent questions. And I will again post what the differences of the Left and right are by Medved and Prager:

There is some crazy information on California and how much we owe for our state workers benefits package. We are beyond bankrupt! (I removed phone calls from the interview and shortened it a bit.)

Islamic College in California~Co-Founder Called for Jihad On 82nd Airborn

A four year college in Berkley where the co-founder called for jihad on American troops. Sharia law will be studied. The following comes from Creeping Sharia:

Muslim College Opens in US With Hopes — and Suspicions. Hopes of spreading sharia law, and they start by applying sharia at the college where men and women are segregated.

Zaytuna College is a new four-year college in Berkeley, California. Zaytuna is seeking to become the first accredited Muslim college in the United States. The name comes from the Arabic word for olives.

The process of full accreditation could take several years. That will make it easier for students to get financial aid, and to have their education recognized by employers and other schools.

Zaytuna held its first classes this summer — intensive study of Arabic to prepare for classes in the fall. Men and women sat on opposite sides of the auditorium. Most of the men had beards and wore skull caps. Most of the women covered their hair with scarves.

Zaytuna currently offers two majors, a choice of Islamic law and religion or Arabic language.

Imam Zaid Shakir is a professor and co-founder of Zaytuna. He was born in Berkeley….

Zaid Shakir wants Islam rooted in the land (the U.S.) like it has been rooted in other countries that Islam has conquered. Since every country where Islam is now dominant has been conquered by Islamic jihad. Shakir is a proponent of jihad, as WND noted, Zaid Shakir Exhorts Islamic faithful to target planes carrying ’82nd Airborne’:

Radical Islamic cleric Zaid Shakir, a frequent guest speaker at CAIR events, tells his Muslim audiences: “Jihad is physically fighting the enemies of Islam to protect and advance the religion of Islam. This is jihad.”

Acceptable targets of jihad, he says, include U.S. military aircraft.

“Islam doesn’t permit us to hijack airplanes filled with civilian people,” Shakir once told a Muslim audience. However, “If you hijack an airplane filled with the 82nd Airborne, that’s something else.”

The 82nd Airborne Division’s elite paratroopers fly out of Fort Bragg, N.C., which is part of North Carolina state Sen. Larry Shaw’s district. Shaw is CAIR’s new chairman.

Time magazine asks what will happen if the US leaves Afghanistan. Sharia law, that’s what. Like 2-million dying after the US left Vietnam… killings will increase in Afghanistan as well. But where the Communists killed by a bullet to the head, these Islamo-Nazi’s are sadomasochists!

People Can Use Their EBT Cards At Casinos – I Suspect We Will Hear About This Tomorrow

This must be layed squarely at the feet of the Democrats. By the way, as much shite as us conservatives give the L.A. Times, this is an excellent article:

….The cards, provided by the Department of Social Services to help recipients feed and clothe their families, work in automated teller machines at 32 of 58 tribal casinos and 47 of 90 state-licensed poker rooms, the review found.

State officials said Wednesday they were working to determine how much money had been withdrawn from casino ATMs by people using the welfare debit cards.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who learned of the issue when asked to comment for this story, promised to take immediate action.

“We have instructed our vendors to prohibit these cards from being accepted at ATMs located in casinos and card rooms,” Schwarzenegger spokesman Aaron McLear said Wednesday. “It is reprehensible that anyone would use taxpayer money for anything other than its intended purpose.”

Administration officials said the social services agency contracts with a private ATM network to handle the electronic transfer of benefits to people on welfare, and hadn’t noticed that the taxpayer money was being withdrawn at gambling establishments.

McLear said the system of paying out welfare benefits via bank cards was created under Schwarzenegger’s predecessor, Democrat Gray Davis. Since the late 1990s most states have adopted this system, which is a viewed as a more efficient way of distributing and tracking government aid….

….The cash benefits, however, can be withdrawn and spent just about anywhere.

The Capitol Casino, which occupies a pair of small rooms a few blocks from the legislative chambers in Sacramento, appears on the social services website showing where clients can get money. Each room has an ATM: one is so close to a poker table that a player with long arms could lean back and withdraw cash without leaving his chair; the other is a few steps from the blackjack table.

At the Casino Royale on the outskirts of Sacramento, the first thing patrons pass as they walk to the gaming floor is the ATM with a sign next to it saying, “Exceed your ATM daily limit here!!”….
