  1. California was the last place in North America for the Norman raiders and their duped Anglo-Saxon-Jute janissaries to conquer before blowtorching Asia for the last century and a half.

  2. Ah California, the land of milk and honey. Where one can have fun falling out of bed. I immigrated back to a small Wisconsin town, with a pop of 967, home of Sargento Cheese after thirty glorious years in California. Living in the Bay Area and building a large public works service company that I started with just a history degree from the University of Wisconsin and a truck and trailer . I would work the entire state driving long routes to get to the job site by sun up work hard all day play hard all night! My girlfriend at the time ,my junior high sweet heart that I followed out there and moved in with after the big quake -worked for the Grateful Dead and we would hit close to a hundred shows a year. Our company was enviable greens inc. most deals done on a firm handshake with hard work diligence and hustle could actually pay off for you and your employees. In Early days , when budgets were tight I would sleep in my rig or when working the desert , in Palm Springs , the sunny place for shady people, I would sleep in desert mountain arroyos. With the lizards and coyotes! Ah the excitement. I would shower etc. below the bleachers at the college of the desert’s football stadium. Hit the next gig. Things grew with execution, diligence and putting nose to the grindstone. My shared house, room -rental at the home base in Potrero Hill neighborhood of. San Francisco with garage and Transamerica building stunning 180′ bay views with grass backyard and hot tub was $400 a month plus utilities. I was able to save 20% down on 40 acres of Redwoods in Humboldt County on the North Fork of the EEl River for the price of used import car. And that was after the S7L land crisis days. I built my own ranch with a crazy partner an off grid solar powered paradise. I could go on quite a while about the “gold rush days” but it all was a surreal beginning of the end when our company was renovating the Veterans Memorial for the City of Palm Desert on the eleventh day in sept the 2001th year when the door closed on that world . Shift on – so we’re cooling our jets recharging our faith in fellow humans , discovering the new “gold rush” with this extraordinary group leading the way, glad to be with you Gizars and keep it coming Dr. I think it’s time for us to come together for Farrell University or Gizar College, maximum width , going for broke to infinity and beyond!! Living the dream again. Thank you Gizars! Thank you DR.

  3. My first try got pulled over by the mods, so I shall attempt another comment.

    The stereotype of the typical Californian is that we are all either hopelessly deluded liberals (Feinstein, Pelosi), or we are undocumented immigrants who pick the deluded liberals’ strawberries.

    FYI, we DO have Californians who can give any self-respecting Texan, Minnesotan, Wyomingian, or whoever, a good, hard run for their money, and with inimitable Cali style, to boot.

    So, if you wanna knock a Californian because you think they are all too liberal or brown-skinned to do anything about the weirdos in Sacramento–keep in mind this fact. Washington DC is way more out of control than Sacramento, and each and every man-Jack and -Jill of us, regardless of our home state, is responsible for that mess.

    Here’s a good one, told by Bob Hope in the 1970s after the State of California (a legal fiction, an entity which only exists in the mind) had recently decriminalized certain acts performed by same-sex couples): “Hi there, I just flew out from California, where they made ho mo blanky blankety legal. I figured, I’d get outta there before they made it compulsory.”

  4. I’m going to mention something here, because I don’t think a lot of us consider this fact. The stereotype of Cali–yes, my home state–is one that holds the populace as being one of two things: either a rich Bay Area/L. A. queer, or an un-papered Mexican who babysits the rich Bay Area/L. A. queer couple’s adopted children; and we’re either too busy being queer, or too busy working slave hours and wages, to pay attention to what the nutjobs in Sacramento are doing.

    I will just say this: Washington DC is a HELLUVA lot more psychopathic than Cali–and, WE ARE ALL responsible for that teeming mess.

    Thank you. May your days be full of sunshine and your surf, forever up.

  5. Yeah, it is preposterous that commercial rocket launches aren’t taxed–by California or whatever party. Wall Street trading isn’t taxed either, another preposterous oversight.

    And it is preposterous that one can be investigated for being a communist–this latter is happening to a public school principle in Brooklyn, today in May 2017. The implication is that she’ll be fired if found to be so.

    Oh, wait, these were posted in seriousness.

  6. Ahahaha maybe the last “communists” will embark on a long, one-way space journey from a spaceport (after paying their tax of course!)
