It is one thing to recommend. It is another thing to demand.
Remember to vote in September to remove Newsom.

Good for everybody. California is doing better than some other states that are rallying around "no mask no vaccine" idiocy.

Vaccines have been required for people in schools for around 100 years. There's no reason at all to turn back from that now.

Unlike other people, I'm willing to use my name here. The selfish tea-party crowd has always been grossly over-represented at this town hall.

The selfish tea party crowd? Please.

Meanwhile… the current disaster in chief, President Mumbles and Fumbles, continues to allow COVID infected folks to run across our border. But that’s okay, right?

Begging Joe:
- Begged Russia to not hack 16 places
- Begged OPEC to increase production
- Begged Taliban to spare Americans

Yeah… What a disaster.
