Religious Liberty Dies in California, Churches are Forced to Pay for Elective Abortions

  Feminism’s holy sacrament of abortion will not be denied. The California Department of Managed Health Care hath decreed that all employers, including churches, must pay for elective abortions in their health insurance plans. A coalition of pro-life groups is challenging the mandate. A campaign against the state of California mandating abortion coverage in insurance plans is intensifying. Several complaints have been filed with the federal government to keep it from violating what Christian legal groups consider American’s fundamental rights and go against their religiously held beliefs and conscience. The Department of Managed Health Care has ordered all employers, including […]

Obama’s Potemkin Village for Illegal Alien Kids

Hat/Tip to the Daily Caller. Obama Admin Forbids Lawmakers From Taking Photos Of Illegal Immigrant Facility As reported here at CH2.0, President Obama’s “Dreamer” policy of not deporting illegal aliens who are minors is wreaking havoc on our southern border. Obama’s Legacy – Squalid Living Conditions for “Dreamers” Tens of thousands of kids are pouring across the border, so many that our border states are having trouble housing, feeding and processing these kids. His “caring” decision to broadcast to the world his intention of NOT deporting illegal aliens, particularly children just to score a few more Hispanic votes is having […]

The Largest School of Manta Rays Ever Filmed

This amazing video captured in 2012 shows the largest school of Manta Rays ever recorded. At first I thought it was a bird. Then I zoomed-in closer and could not believe my eyes.What do you see in this video, is an incredibly large group of mobular rays and they do something totally unexpected. Thankfully, National Geographic filmed this event and we may be witnessing a very special natural spectacle. More from Diego Sacramento. .  

Obama’s Legacy – Squalid Living Conditions for “Dreamers”

Hat/Tip to TownHall.com and Breitbart. News Reports in Central America: ‘Go to America With Your Child, You Won’t Be Turned Away’ The thing about Liberal policies is that someone, somewhere, eventually down the line has to foot the bill. Well Obama’s ineptitude and childlike view of our country’s border policy is finally coming home to roost. The cities and states on the Mexican border are left holding the bag as they try to deal with literally tens of thousands of illegals who are pouring across our southern border. And those folks who have told that they won’t be deported are […]

The Contraception Lady wants public office

Okay, that makes sense. I mean Sandra Fluke made national headlines asking taxpayers to pay for her birth control and now she wants California taxpayers to pay her salary. She’s evidently thrown her hat into the ring in a run for the California State Senate. Is this any surprise? I mean look how Progressive/Communist California has become, she will fit right in. Much like the GOP establishment wants to “control the decline” of the country, she wants to control the nosedive that is California. Here is her campaign ad, then scroll down for a rebuttal ad that you will WANT […]

Students Sue California for Public School Failures; Teacher’s Unions in Opposition

I’m frankly surprised that this hasn’t happened sooner, but students are suing California for (allow me to paraphrase) having a crappy educational system.  FOX has more… Amidst ongoing national debate, nine public school students in California are suing the state over its laws governing teacher tenure, seniority and other protections they say keep bad educators in the classroom. The Los Angeles Times reports the lawsuit – filed on behalf of the students and their families by a group called Students Matter – argues such laws violate the U.S. Constitution’s guarantee of equal protection because they lead to a “gross disparity,” […]

ObamaCare Damage: 70% of California Doctors Avoiding ObamaCare

Remember when the President Obama told us that if we liked our doctors, we could keep them?  Well, we now know that this was a lie.  However, the extent of how big a lie it was is up for debate.  However, it seems that at least in California, is a 70% lie, as that is how many doctors are refusing to participate in ObamaCare plans… This isn’t some far right wing think tank that’s making this claim. It’s the largest medical association in California: An estimated seven out of every 10 physicians in deep-blue California are rebelling against the state’s […]

People Fleeing California Due to Taxes

Imagine, if you will, a state that give companies a tax break.  Then, five years later, demand the money back, with interest?  Well, such a state exists.  It is alive, and not so well in the People’s Republic of California!  Here is some video… I wonder if, one day, that they’ll try to build a wall to keep people in?

Is Prop 8 Still The Law?

We all thought that Prop 8 went down in flames earlier this week.  however, some are questioning if the media has the story right.  Doug, of the Daily Gator, has this, via Breitbart… Proposition 8 is the amendment to the California Constitution that defines marriage as the union of one man and one woman. A federal trial judge – Vaughn Walker – held that Prop 8 violates the Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. On Wednesday, the Supreme Court held that only the losing defendants in that case – the governor and attorney general of California–had standing to appeal that […]

Taxing the Rich out of California

Likes has a slideshow about why rich folks are moving out of California.  I wonder how long it will be before someone suggest building a wall to keep them in?

Welfare Choices: Do People Migrate to States With the Most Welfare Benefits?

Take a look at this video, and see if welfare benefits change people’s behavior… Of course, I cannot tell you with 100% certainty that the video is authentic. However, it does match what so many have observed-that welfare benefits have removed motivation from millions of Americans, and has done so for generations.  Is welfare the cause of inter-generational poverty?

California Raises Taxes, Lose Revenues…Again!

They say that they definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over, and expecting a different result.  If that is indeed the case, California’s tax policies make them the official land of fruits and nuts, as they are proving the insanity axiom to be most true. On March 15th of this year, we took a look at the fact that after yet another failed tax increase… One of the greatest weaknesses of the statists is that their efforts at creating a fantasy world. more often than not, create the exact opposite of their stated intent.  They try […]

California on the Brink: 144,000 Pay 50% of Income Taxes

Imagine the situation in which California finds itself.  Out of all the income taxes collected by that state, 50% of it is paid by by only 144,000 people.  Far less than one percent of the population.  Doug Ross has more on the issue… California residents already contend with one of the most progressive tax codes in the country. Not only does California have high marginal rates, those high rates kick in at relatively modest income levels. California’s middle class residents earning $48,000 a year, for example, pay a state tax rate of 9.3%. Millionaires in 47 other states don’t even pay that […]

California Raises Taxes and Revenues Decrease: Who Saw That Coming?

One of the greatest weaknesses of the statists is that their efforts at creating a fantasy world. more often than not, create the exact opposite of their stated intent.  They try to engineer unicorns that fart rainbows, and they create a stillborn jackalope.  You would think that they would learn from such infamous failures, but they seem to double-down instead.  The latest example of this comes from Califailure.   Knowing, and probably denying, the long history showing that tax increases  cause a decrease in revenues, they have stuck with the highest tax rates in the country.  Breitbart has the predictable results.   […]

Teacher Make Adult Films and the Kids Make Adult Films: Are They Connected?

What happens when a school teacher was, shall we say, an employee in the adult entertainment industry, and kids in the very same school decide to do the same?  Is there a connection?  Well, that’s the theory of Stacy McCain.  Let’s take a look at his logic.   Let’s face it: If you ever hire somebody with a name like that, you can generally expect trouble to result: Stacie Halas, a 31-year-old science teacher at Richard B. Haydock Intermediate School in Oxnard, was removed from the classroom Monday, three days afterpupils reported spotting her in a series of X-rated clips. “Maybe it’s […]

More Evidence that OWS is a Microcosm of Their Future Socialist State

Redistribution is one of the key foundational concepts of socialism.  People having differing talents & work habits is inherently unfair, so government has to steal from others, and give to others.  Naturally, we have history to teach us that this thinking eventually fails, but reality is an elusive concept to our left, so additional examination is needed. The latest example comes from OWS, who have been taking over forclosed homes, and kinda-sorta giving them to others.  Let’s see how that has worked out for them.  Hot Air has the details… The proposal originally attracted the support of Wise Ahadzi, owner […]

This is What "Democracy" Looks Like? Progressives Attempting to Stop a Vote on "Amazon Tax"

califailure1

If you recall, Califailure passed a tax on on-line sales, causing Amazon to cancel their successful Affiliate Program in that state.  We also know that the regressive mantra in the past year has been, “This is what democracy looks like.” Of course, in Wisconsin, “democracy” meant preventing actual votes from being taken.  You know, democracy!  In a “democracy,” votes are only to be taken when the outcome suits the regressives.  If they will not, well…I guess “democracy” cannot be permitted. Now, back to the Amazon Tax.  Amazon is refusing to collect taxes for Califailure, and is campaigning to have a […]

Twelve Counties to Secede from California?

califailure1

For some time now, I’ve called on productive people to abandon California, allowing it to sink into it’s own socialist failure.  Apparenltly, some folks in Sounthern California had the same idea, but with a twist… They’re going to leave, but take some of California with them! Does this plan have a snowball’s chance in Hades of being successful?  Of course not! But, it does show that there is enough discontent in California to bring up the discussion.  Taxes, excessive regulation, rampant illegal immigration, and all the other ills of socialism are having their way with California, and it’s residents.  In […]
