Now is the Time for Us to Look at Evacuation Needs ~ Austen Thibault

Posted by: thepinetree on 09/21/2022 05:15 PM
San Andreas, CA...We have all experienced the challenges of driving our local roads. They can be narrow, winding and, in some cases, one lane. Imagine how much worse those challenges would be in a fire or flood. You have the opportunity to express your concerns to the Calaveras Council of Governments, the Regional Transportation Planning Agency.

The United States Constitution Was Signed on This Day 235 Years Ago

Posted by: thepinetree on 09/17/2022 06:17 PM
Philadelphia, PA...In these crazy hyper-political times all of us could take a few minutes to reflect that the United States is unique among nations in that we are nothing more and nothing less than a shared belief in a collection of ideas.  We are not Spanish, Italian, German, Chinese, Irish or even English.  We are Americans by choice!  Our founders were a flawed, hypocritical, group of men and far from perfect.  The documents they created however are as close to perfect as any founding documents for any country ever. From our Declaration of Independence onward our nation has symbolized freedom for not only ourselves but most of the globe.

Looking for Upward Economic Mobility? Make Friends at Church. ~ By Ted Gaines

Posted by: thepinetree on 09/14/2022 09:49 PM
Roseville, CA...It's tough to survive in California if you're poor. Green-energy schemes drive our electricity rates 80-percent above the national average. Gas prices make every trip to the gas station gut-wrenching. The median home price is above $800,000 and our state sales and income taxes are the highest in the nation. It’s a state that leaves people shaking their heads in hopelessness and asking, “how will I ever get ahead?”

Mea Culpa, Mea Culpa, Mea Maxima Culpa ~ John Hamilton

Posted by: thepinetree on 04/16/2022 02:48 PM
Arnold, CA....Mea Culpa, Mea Culpa, Mea Maxima Culpa. The mistakes and miscues around last Thursday's Candidate Debate at Independence Hall were mine and mine alone. It was not GABA's and certainly not Martin Huberty's, Lisa Muetterties or their campaigns it was mine. Mine alone....Period.

Who Pays for the Woke? ~ Congressman Tom McClintock

Posted by: thepinetree on 10/07/2021 11:59 PM
Washington, DC...During the Trump Administration, Republicans passed one of the biggest tax cuts in American history and the greatest regulatory relief ever. The result was the biggest economic expansion in our lifetimes. Before the lockdown left took a wrecking ball to our economy, Americans were prospering with the lowest unemployment rate in 50 years – the lowest poverty rate in 60 years – and the fastest wage growth in 40 years. For the first time in decades, the income gap was narrowing.

CA Homicide Up 31%: Legislative Democrats’ Solution: Reduce Penalties for Criminals Convicted of the Most Heinous Murder

Posted by: thepinetree on 07/14/2021 04:14 PM
Sacramento, CA...Crime is spiking and what do Legislative Democrats want to do? Revisit a bill that reduces penalties for criminals convicted of the most heinous crimes.   Days after Los Angeles experienced a bloody weekend and media is reporting the staggering uptick in crime, legislative Democrats are revisiting Senate Bill 300 (SB 300), legislation that would reduce the sentence for individuals convicted of the most serious and heinous murders. Not only would it allow a judge to reduce the penalty for the actual killer, preventing life in prison and the death penalty, but it also prohibits the prosecution and sentencing of individuals who aid the killer in their crimes even when they act with reckless indifference to human life.

Earmarks: A Monumentally Bad Idea By Congressman Tom McClintock

Posted by: thepinetree on 06/30/2021 12:30 PM
Washington, DC...Ever since the Magna Carta, it has been a settled principle of good governance that the power that appropriates public funds should not be the same power that spends them. This principle is at the heart of our Constitution: the separation of powers. Simply speaking, it is mother’s rule writ large. Mother has one slice of pie and two hungry sons. How does she cut the pie so that both brothers are satisfied? One slices, and the other chooses. One brother cannot abuse his powers precisely because of the powers accorded the other.

The Inflation Tax By Congressman Tom McClintock

Posted by: thepinetree on 06/03/2021 12:07 PM
Washington, DC...When the Democrats passed Mr. Biden’s $1.9 trillion spending spree in March, a lot of people got a lot of free money – thousands of dollars in many cases. But the bill is already coming due for that free money, and, as many of us warned, it turns out that free money is very expensive. Indeed, it turns out that the very same families most harmed by the lockdowns will be the most harmed by paying the bill for the lockdown relief. It comes to about $15,000 for an average family and the first installment is already reflected in the rising inflation sapping the purchasing power of working families.
