Walking it back

Rail line to nowhere.

“No more division, xenophobia or nativism.”

“…where air travel stops becoming necessary.”

Jan 2019

“The proposals, aimed at stopping fires this year, would require the utility to remove an estimated 100 million trees…”

Particularly with no idea how you’ll pay for it

“In reality, the ‘Skip the Slip’ measure would have almost no impact”

Gavin Newsom 2020?

Jazz Shaw Jan 19, 2019 10:01 AM

Say it isn’t so

“Analysts estimate that PG&E could face as much as $30 billion in liability…”

Seems like there’s a conflict between free speech and trademark law here

“…would be used to set up a fund to pay billions of dollars in potential claims from wildfires”

This won’t be awkward at all…

Does the Second Amendment cover illegal aliens?

Dec 2018

A pleasing idea, but still too much government

Administrative errors and just a bad idea all the way around

“…residents say the situation has gotten worse in recent years.”

It’s official. California moves up its primary

Jazz Shaw Dec 27, 2018 8:31 AM

Early voting strikes again

“…because of that our county was shot up by a violent criminal”

Um… isn’t that pretty much all you’ve done?

It’s a tough enough job as it is

“The Department of Justice declined to comment on…who was notified about it and whether an internal investigation was launched.”

“At approximately 6:30 a.m. a PG&E employee observed fire in the vicinity…”

YGBKM: TIL California wants to tax … text messages

Ed Morrissey Dec 12, 2018 6:01 PM

Retroactively?

“Pension promises made with the best intentions or from political loyalty may prove impossible to deliver.”

Not exactly, but it will still change the game

Nov 2018

“…he witnessed Bauman taunting staff members on multiple occasions about their sexual orientation”

“It just kind of looked like we’d be headed into Mordor.”

Taking your breath away

“PG&E may not have enough to cover this cost…”

“If you see anyone on the list who is no longer missing please contact us…”

Death toll from California wildfires climbs to 44

John Sexton Nov 13, 2018 7:21 PM

“…firefighters said the threat from the ‘Woolsey Fire’ was far from over”

All in the family

“Northern California’s Camp Fire has torched more than 6,400 homes and killed 29 people since it began Thursday morning…”

Executive action to change wrongheaded policy is still wrong.

“No, we’re not going to die like this.”

Caravan decides: It’s California or bust

Jazz Shaw Nov 10, 2018 8:31 AM

Long way to go

More people are leaving California. But still not enough.

Andrew Malcolm Nov 09, 2018 6:41 PM

Maybe more should leave

“Malibu has about 13,000 residents…”

Because Big Brother knows what you should do with your property

Oct 2018

What could possibly go wrong?

Hmmm: GOP up 5 in California battleground districts?

Ed Morrissey Oct 25, 2018 8:01 PM

Waving.

Dirty deeds done not very cheaply at all

Gavin Newsom’s bullet train to nowhere

John Sexton Oct 13, 2018 7:01 PM

“I can’t see any particular scenario in which we should continue to pour money down this rathole.”
