Marijuana Legalization Has 3 Life-Saving Public Health Benefits, New Study Finds ~ By Brad Polumbo

Posted by: thepinetree on 04/06/2021 11:05 AM
Atlanta, GA...Harkening back to the days of “Reefer Madness,” proponents of marijuana criminalization have tended to frame their arguments in terms of protecting the public from a supposedly dangerous health hazard. But new research concludes that, in reality, legalizing marijuana improves public health.

Hindus Urge Netflix to Rethink Hosting “Record of Ragnarok”, as it Trivializes Lord Shiva

Posted by: thepinetree on 04/06/2021 11:31 AM
Reno, NV...Upset Hindus are urging Netflix to seriously reconsider hosting of anime TV shows “Record of Ragnarok”, which they have called as “highly inappropriate” as it trivializes immensely revered Hindu deity Lord Shiva. Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, said that Lord Shiva was meant to be worshipped in temples and home shrines and not to be thrown around loosely or dragged around unnecessarily in anime TV series for mercantile greed.

Calaveras Democrats are Disappointed with Congressman McClintock

Posted by: thepinetree on 03/28/2021 11:50 AM
Murphys, CA...Calaveras County Democratic Central Committee sent the following to Representative McClintock. "We write to express our disappointment with your recent vote against HR1319, otherwise known as the American Rescue Plan. You have characterized your opposition as concern for the financial future of American families, and as fiscal responsibility. It is our view that this is, at the very least, disingenuous and insultingly misleading to your constituents. Preaching fiscal responsibility after voting in favor of a 1.5 trillion dollar tax cut in 2017 for those who already enjoy an extreme level of wealth, and then voting against survival funds for your own constituents is not leadership.

Government Handouts & Wild Hogs ~ by Albert J. Segalla

Posted by: thepinetree on 03/17/2021 11:55 AM
Copperopolis, CA...Shortly, my wife and I are to receive a $1,400 free hand out from the government. This reminds me of a story about wild hogs. Over a century ago, in the hills of Appalachia, there existed a large drove of wild hogs that the locals could not catch. These hogs ran wild and free eating acorns and roots. They avoided human beings for hundreds of years.

No Borders, No Country ~ By Congressman Tom McClintock

Posted by: thepinetree on 03/05/2021 01:50 PM
Roseville, CA...Before the lockdown left took a wrecking ball to our economy last year, we were enjoying one of the greatest expansions of economic opportunity in our lifetimes.  Unemployment was at its lowest rate in 50 years, the poverty rate was at its lowest in 60 years.  Wage growth was the strongest in 40 years.  The wage gap was narrowing for the first time in many years, as blue-collar wages increased dramatically.  The unemployment rate for women was the lowest in 70 years.  For African Americans, Hispanic Americans and Asian Americans, veterans and disabled Americans, and those without a high school diploma, unemployment was the lowest ever recorded.

Posted by: thepinetree on 02/22/2021 11:10 PM
San Andreas, CA...I am a Calaveras County planning commissioner.  On March 9, the Calaveras County Board of Supervisors will be considering the rezoning of almost 7000 parcels in the County to make the zoning consistent with the 2019 General Plan or to replace temporary “U” (Unclassified) zoning with specific zoning.

Is Servant Household Income of $151,800 & Master Household Income of $28,074 Sustainable?

Posted by: thepinetree on 02/08/2021 02:03 PM
Washington, DC...If you believe the constant drum beat from talking heads of all political persuasions we are a deeply divided country. I don't believe we're as divided as they would like to have us believe as they make money and gain influence by having us at loggerheads. There are however some discrepancies that are just too large to ignore. One such discrepancy is the household income of Washington DC and its suburbs versus the rest of the US. In some cases our public “servants” average over five times the income of their “masters”.

Lockdowns are Killing Us ~ Congressman Tom McClintock

Posted by: thepinetree on 02/05/2021 10:53 AM
Washington, DC...We are now nearly a year into the most self-destructive social experiment in the recorded history of human civilization. On this day a year ago, we enjoyed the greatest economic expansion in our lifetimes.  The poverty rate was the lowest in 60 years.  The unemployment rate was the lowest in 50 years.  Wage growth was the strongest in 40 years.  The wage gap was narrowing, with blue collar wages growing the fastest.  Unemployment rates for minority groups and women was the lowest ever recorded.

I Had A Dream ~ Al Segalla

Posted by: thepinetree on 01/27/2021 11:13 AM
Copperopolis, CA...I had a dream. I dreamed six months from now, I visited my local service station and noticed something very different. There were two different signs on separate pumps. The first sign said: "Trump Voters Only - Price $2.85 per gallon." The other: "Biden Voters Only - $8,25 per gallon." Glad this was only a dream.

In a Post Trump World Could Libertarians Actually Win? ~ John Hamilton

Posted by: thepinetree on 01/11/2021 06:42 AM
Arnold, CA...After a week where watching the news from Washington made Americans physically ill it made me wonder what could actually be the next and safest path to unite the most Americans in a post Trump world? According to many statistics if old school liberal Democrats, Libertarian leaning Republicans and actual Libertarians ever actually joined forces it would easily make the largest voting block in the nation.
