My meanderings about politics, space exploration, cars, cats, tech things and whatever else strikes my fancy. To the current occupant of the White House, we will not be taken into war on anyone's leash.
This ruling is not the end of the world for Gay and Lesbian rights in our country. I don’t believe it’s a good ruling but it is now the law of the land.
Here is what is important, telling your boss in Most states in this country that you are going to get married to someone of the same sex opens you to being fired for no calls. There are no protections for the lgbtq community regarding employment.
When I tell people this they say oh no that can’t be right there is always been protections for everyone and when I explain to them that there are no National protections for the lgbtq community they do not believe me. But in fact it’s the truth and until we have laws protecting us from this form of discrimination we are still not in any way shape or form equal to everyone else.
On a recent town hall meeting over the phone with my representative Jimmy Gomez he told us about something that runs in the Republican party in Congress. It’s called ABC or anybody but California. we are the largest state in the Union in population. We are the largest economy in the Union. We are if an independent country the fifth largest economy in the world. And it seems that they hate us for it. They hate us for our clean air, clean water and beautiful way of living. I don’t want to leave the union I just want to make a more perfect union.
Scott Pruitt when he worked for the state of Oklahoma sued the EPA countless times. He has publicly said that the EPA should be dismantled, and let’s not forget the fact that he takes bribes. He’s living in a condominium one block from the Capitol building in Washington in some of the most pricey real estate. He has every right to live there if you paid for it. Instead he’s paying 1/3 of the going rate for that apartment that he leases from an oil company that he’s given special permissions to drill in preserved lands. Sure he takes first class flights, he says he doesn’t like the people in coach telling him what they think about him. I guess he feels more comfortable with the millionaires who he kowtows to. If he acted like a real governmental official he would be looking after the best interest of our country and our planet but he doesn’t care.
It’s time that we fire him and his boss, end of discussion.
Under Scott Pruitt, EPA should be renamed to the Environmental Destruction Agency.
I remember a time when the Republican Party thought that states rights overrule the federal government’s. I remember during the Obama Administration when President Obama was signed executive orders because the Republican Congress would not pass legislation he was attacked for over reach. This president and this EPA administrator have a special place in hell. They don’t care about our children because the NRA tells him not to care and they don’t care about the air and water we breathe and drink because corporations don’t want to have regulations imposed upon them so they can poisonous to save a penny.
The American car companies are short-sighted. If they don’t build fuel efficient cars there will be no American car companies. The rest of the world is not sitting and waiting to see what do United States is doing and they are in the Forefront of producing the most fuel efficient cars available.
Everyday I have to see cornerstones of what makes America great being dismantled by this violin ministration. This is becoming untenable.
California wolf fights and we’ll fight hard because we are people of conviction hands we will not let the federal government destroyed our state.
The opposite of transparent is opaque. Donald Trump is opaque. He fears light. He doesn’t want you to know too much about him because if you do you won’t like what you see. Saying that he is shallow is an insult to puddles. Of course he will block the release of the videos but they will be released and then he will say that it was racially motivated. He’s a thief and someone who doesn’t pay his bills. He preyed on poor people who believed his lies that he would make them rich. Shame on him. His campaign reserved an Arena that holds 11,000 people for his speech tonight. The police expected giant crowds outside protesting. The last time I checked there were less than 1,500 people in the arena. There was about 150 people outside protesting. And he was an hour and a half late getting there because he wanted to avoid being on the local news with an empty Arena. That’s how much he doesn’t like the light. He wants Darkness around him so that people can’t see what he really is. He is the monster that the Republican party has created through its hatred and policies.

I wrote about my own experiences voting yesterday in the California primary. I received a lot of blow back from what I had written. One person actually wrote that what I wrote was BS. I kind of feel Vindicated by the story in the Los Angeles Times. It was a mess for me and my neighbors who voted in our Precinct. It seems that for some reason there was some computer glitch that made us all mail-in only voters. I had to vote provisionally, the first time I’ve ever voted that way. As some of you may know I ran unsuccessfully for neighborhood Council. Two close friends of mine called me the day after the election to tell me they had just received their credentials. They emailed me the notification from the Department of Elections of Los Angeles County. I’m working with others to put a plan together to present to Los Angeles County because this cannot go on.

Now the Sanders supporters are looking like spoiled brats. How do they think they have a case to sue in order to extend something that they should have done when they turned 18. I know I voted when I was 18 and registered on the day after my birthday. I guess the rules don’t mean much to them. This is been a pattern that has been a Hallmark of the Sanders supporters. Now they say that they did so for the extension but it was Hillary Clinton supporters that did. They lie continuously and it’s getting old.

In a move that could potentially revolutionize what we think about space exploration, SpaceX has done something no one else has been able to achieve. Landing a rocket after having gone into orbit on a unmanned barge. Elon Musk is truly the Visionary that this world needs right now. AVB http://graphics.latimes.com/videochat-spacex-launch-040716/
