California DOES have a choice, check out the grassroots movement that is the Conservative ascendancy of Chelene Nightingale. We do NOT have to pick between two liberal nitwits, but they do have money and name recognition so vote Nightingale, spread the word, get family & friends to vote as well. This is a very important election and California must be fixed!!

Terrorism History Test

This has been around for a while, but it does make an important point. Do we really need to harass 80 year old women at the airports? Maybe we should *GASP* profile??

What’s your score?

Nightingale For Governor 2010

The California Air Resource Board is merely a political tool used to attack industry and is largely responsible for industry jobs leaving California. Finding they falsified data to push their anti-industry agenda is no surprise at all. The next Governor of this state can take a huge step towards recovery by shutting this agency down and rolling back the damage they have done over the years:

Overestimate fueled state’s landmark diesel law
Wyatt Buchanan, Chronicle Sacramento Bureau

Friday, October 8, 2010

California grossly miscalculated pollution levels in a scientific analysis used to toughen the state’s clean-air standards, and scientists have spent the past several months revising data and planning a significant weakening of the landmark regulation, The Chronicle has found.

The pollution estimate in question was too high – by 340 percent, according to the California Air Resources Board, the state agency charged with researching and adopting air quality standards. The estimate was a key part in the creation of a regulation adopted by the Air Resources Board in 2007, a rule that forces businesses to cut diesel emissions by replacing or making costly upgrades to heavy-duty, diesel-fueled off-road vehicles used in construction and other industries.

The staff of the powerful and widely respected Air Resources Board said the overestimate is largely due to the board calculating emissions before the economy slumped, which halted the use of many of the 150,000 diesel-exhaust-spewing vehicles in California. Independent researchers, however, found huge overestimates in the air board’s work on diesel emissions and attributed the flawed work to a faulty method of calculation – not the economic downturn.

The overestimate, which comes after another bad calculation by the air board on diesel-related deaths that made headlines in 2009, prompted the board to suspend the regulation this year while officials decided whether to weaken the rule.

Not spam, a Call For Action by me personally, Guy:

California’s Choice, Chelene Nightingale For Governor

I don’t usually contribute to political campaigns, but I did in this case. California desperately needs repair and we all know we’re not going to get it in Whitman or Brown. Check out Nightingale’s stance on the issues and you’ll find she has true Conservative solutions to the problems that face the state. So I just sent in my contribution, send in yours if you can. And pass this email and the word around, we’re getting down to the wire in this election so immediate circulation is urgent!

Double Jepordy

A follow up on yesterday’s post about the fool fire cheif that let that guys house burn down:

What if I was being assaulted in the street, would the police have to check to see if I paid my protection money before assisting me? And let me get mauled and possibly murdered if I haven’t paid up?? Our taxes PAY for these basic services no matter who we are or where we are.
I’ve heard of fire fighters sending a bill, and that’s preposterous, it’s what they are ALREADY PAID FOR.
Double dipping ticks me off, we have to pay to ‘use’ so called ‘public’ areas. National parks charge for entering, camping, boat launching, picnicking, (‘day use’), and our taxes ALREADY PAY for this!!!! If they want to make cha-ching off of usage fees, fine, then accept no tax dollars. We don’t need to pay twice, especially since the one time is too high as it is.

We pay property taxes, income taxes, sales taxes, utilities, fines, fees, etc. The very LEAST we should get in return is our basic safety services. Could this be a look into the America envisioned by the Democrat Party? Do we have to pay Protection to save our families and homes?

A local neighborhood is infuriated after firefighters watched as an Obion County, Tennessee home burned to the ground.

The homeowner, Gene Cranick, offered to pay whatever amount would be required for firefighters to put out the flames to stop the fire from spreading to their house, but was told that it was too late.

Each year, Obion County residents must pay $75 if they want fire protection from the city of South Fulton.

Mayor David Crocker said that if homeowners don’t pay, they’re out of luck.

Due to garden hoses being insufficient to put it out, the fire went on for hours.

When a neighbor’s field caught fire (a neighbor who had paid the county fire service fee), the department responded. When Gene Cranick asked the fire chief to make an exception and save his home, the chief refused.

When Local 6 WPSD asked the chief why he wouldn’t, he called the police to have the news crew removed from the property.

Police never arrived and firefighters fled the scene. Meanwhile, the Cranick home continued to burn.

I know, I know, just what the Web needs, another blog written by some Guy. 😉

I hope to stimulate some thought with my writings here, what’s happening to America and the world around us is serious business and the more people know and think the better off we’ll all be.

Stay tuned and thanks for looking!
