California Politician’s Hypocrisy

Gavin Newsom
David Chiu

A few days ago Governor Newsom signed Assembly Bill 1482. Under this new law property owners across the state cannot increase rent by more than 5% annually. David Chiu (D-SanFrancisco) authored the bill and stated “Our bill ensures tenants are protected against rent gouging …”

I won’t comment on whether I believe this is a good or bad bill because it’s irrelevant to the point I want to make. What I WANT to do is draw attention to the sheer hypocrisy of the governing body of California.

Let’s break this down.

In 1978 a landmark bill named Proposition 13 was passed by California voters. The bill limited the government’s power to increase property taxes to 2% annually. At the time, California County Assessors were pricing people out of their homes with re-assessed home values to try to increase their revenue. Although the government aggressively fought to defeat the passage of this bill … the voters prevailed.

Essentially, it was a law to prevent government from gouging property owners.

California government has constantly tried to repeal or knock down Prop 13 because it dramatically decreased the amount of revenue they can collect from property owners. Now the California Government has a ballot measure on the 2020 ballot to reform Prop 13 to re-assess commercial properties every three years thus creating a windfall in revenues for the State … at the expense of property owners.

In case any of you are having a hard time spotting the hypocrisy … let me spell it out for you. Apparently the government doesn’t like limits being put on it’s ability to collect revenue but they have no problem putting limits on their constituent’s ability to collect revenue. California is trying to get rid of the limit put on them while concurrently putting limits on property owners. I’m no scholar … but that sure seems to be the definition of hypocrisy to me!

Obviously a huge increase in rent is a problem that many people can’t afford. So, on it’s face, the bill seems like a good idea but it goes against free enterprise. I understand that something needs to be done to prevent people from their rent skyrocketing but when you have government stepping in and placing limits on property owners while at the same time trying to strike down a law that puts limits on the government … it just seems a little hypocritical.

Now looking towards the future …

Am I the only one nervous about the Government’s attack on Proposition 13!?

There is no limit to the amount of money the State Government wants to collect from it’s tax payers. What’s worse is that the majority of Californians take joy in fucking themselves over. There was already a state gas tax that goes to pay for roads … but it wasn’t enough for our money hungry state politicians … so they proposed another tax and it passed! Where the fuck are these Californians that keep voting for more taxes!?

Honestly, I’m a bit nervous about this ballot initiative to reform Prop 13 because I don’t have any faith left in my fellow Californians! They seem to be the easiest group of people to dupe! A $9-billion dollar bond Californians passed in 2008 to build a bullet train! Has anyone taken a ride on that bullet train yet!?

The government says it will only reform Prop 13 to affect commercial properties. Yeah, right! … and I’m holding the winning Lottery ticket for tonight’s drawing. Maybe they’ll start with that but once they earmark that money for some free program for illegal immigrants, they will be looking for another revenue source! You don’t think they are going to go after residential home owners when that time comes!?

How gullible are you? Rhetorical question!

Free Healthcare for Illegals

In what fucking world does this make sense!?

Oh yeah … California! The “Fuck-the-Working Man” state.

Governor Newsom … in all his “wisdom” … has passed a budget that will allocate $98 million in funding for undocumented young adults under the age of 26 to enroll in Medi-Cal. Hey! Governor Newsom, take a look around! Why don’t you take that $98,000,000 that you are going to spend on healthcare for people who are here ILLEGALLY and put it towards the crippling homeless problem that you are so conveniently blind to. Just look out your fucking window at City Hall and you can see what I’m talking about!

In all my years paying for healthcare, I have NEVER had the rates go down. Have you!? The bullshit logic Sacramento is peddling is that instead of illegals going into the emergency rooms when they are sick … with health care, they will be going to a primary care physician which will cost the state less. HUH!? How are multiple, regular office visits going to be cheaper than one time in the emergency room?

I’ll be honest, I don’t want to take the time to research the numbers and create a pie chart to prove this wrong. Honestly, maybe the numbers do work … but that is beside the point! It’s a matter of principle! These people broke the law and now we are going to reward them with free healthcare? Get the fuck outta here! With that kind of logic, we should let Bernie Madoff out of jail!

They broke the law! We are not supposed to reward them for that! They should be scared to get medical help … because they are here ILLEGALLY! If we make it okay for people living here illegally to get insurance and live their lives with no fear of being prosecuted for breaking the law … we might as well open the borders and put out the welcome mat …

… because now there is no reason for them not to come here. They figure all they have to do is get here … and everything is free!

Paulette Cha, a health policy expert for the Public Policy Institute of California, said it is unlikely that the expansion will attract more undocumented individuals to California who are specifically seeking out health care.

What!?

BULLSHIT! That’s exactly what it’s going to do! Hey Paulette, maybe you can pull your head out of Newsom’s ass and breath some fresh air in the hopes it will bring your common sense back.


Here is her bio in case you want to put a face to this absurd statement …


“If you believe in universal health care, you believe in universal health care” – Gavin Newsom

Hey Governor Sellout … I fork out $1000/month for my family to have health care. In the budget you passed, I’m STILL paying … but the person here ILLEGALLY is getting health care for free. That doesn’t sound like universal health care to me! It sounds like I’m getting fucked while someone who shouldn’t be here has won the lottery. If you want to try universal health care … maybe start by giving it to the citizen’s FIRST

… and then if there is anything left over, then you can try to sell the idea of covering the illegals.

Did you think I wouldn’t get pissed!? Oh! … you did figure I’d get pissed … that’s why you threw in a teeny-tiny subsidy for everyone paying the bill to try to make them feel like you aren’t bending them over a barrel and dry fucking them … which you are! Maybe the majority of people in this state don’t understand how shit works but I paid attention in civics class (when they used to teach it) and can actually do math … and it doesn’t add up! So, let me get this straight. I’m going to pay for someone else to have free health care while I pay and then the discount you are going to give everyone, I’m going to pay for ALSO! How does math work on your planet!?

Who’s going to pay for it!?

Businesses?

I doubt it! Most of them have already left for other states to get away from the toxic business environment you’ve helped create.

The Rich?

Unlikely! They can afford a great lawyer to help take advantage of all the tax loopholes so they don’t pay shit!

So I guess the shrinking middle class is on the hook … again! There is a limit to how much we can pay before we fall into the poor category, idiot. What then!? You certainly aren’t going to get any Federal help.

How about you focus on helping ME out … your constituent … and sideline your little anti-Trump bullshit! I DON’T need you to lead the fight against him … I need you to make California a place I can afford to live. I need you to take care of the homeless problem so I don’t step in human shit while I’m walking on the sidewalk. I need you to keep violent criminals off the street so my kids can play outside. I need you to fix the roads with that gas tax everyone I know voted against and I need you to rein in health care costs … for ME!not for people who are here illegally.

To quote you Governor Newsom:

“California is infamous for passing things and then waking up and saying, ‘What the hell did we just pass?'”

… consider what you just passed one of them.

Potholes on the Road

With the amount of taxes this state applies to gasoline … there should not be a single pothole on our roads! As of July 1st 2019, Californians will be taxed 65 cents PER GALLON of gasoline!

Pause for a moment and let that sink in.

On average, Californians consume roughly 14 billion gallons of gasoline annually. Taxing that amount by 65 cents per gallon yields $9.1 billion in revenue. California gets $6.5 billion of that amount … every year … to be spent on road maintenance. These streets should be covered in gold for Christ’s sake with the amount of money we’re taxed … yet EVERY road I drive on needs repair. Where is all the fucking money going!? I’ll tell you where it’s going! It’s the criminal legislature stealing the money from the gasoline tax to put into the general fund for stupid shit. Those taxes initially were intended towards maintaining the roads … nothing else. Now, it’s become common place for the government to use the money for something else and then complain they don’t have enough money to fix the roads. WHAT!? I’m at a loss how the assholes in Sacramento can do this shit and people aren’t rioting in the streets! Oh yeah, people are too busy watching cat videos to get upset about anything that matters. I have a coronary every time I pull into the gas station and see the prices. Then, I have to dodge potholes while leaving the gas station which just reminds me how bad I’m getting fucked. Every fill up should come with a packet of Astroglide! And don’t tell me to start taking public transportation so there’s not so many cars damaging the roads. Fuck off! I like my car and the freedom it provides and I don’t think I should be made to feel guilty about that! If you’re in the State Government, YOU should feel guilty for the piss poor job you’re doing with OUR funds! Take your pet projects and social engineering and shove it up your ass! Fix the roads that we ALL use every day … going to work … creating more tax money … for you assholes to waste!

The Government’s lack of action on fixing the potholes is such a joke that Domino’s Pizza started filling potholes as a marketing campaign. Hey Government! A pizza chain is doing your job! What the fuck!?
