Nothing stops a bullet like a job. The jobs are moving from Socialist California to other statesRead More where free enterprise (and therefore wealthy people) is still respected. It would be an act of kindness to release these people, therefore, only to the likes of Texas, Arizona, Nevada, and the Carolinas. When will we realize that we are getting nothing for our Tax money from the likes of UCLA, et al…….and offer ALL of those buildings to the likes of General Electric for just $10,000 monthly….provided that they re-locate all of their foreign factories to the socialist breeding grounds that are operated by the government and called "universities?" Nothing stops a bullet like a job. Provided by the Most Practical Economist in America.

I cannot get over the irony- the most rabid anti gun nut job in the state Senate, Leland Yee, getsRead More busted for selling guns illegally. This is just too poetic. Should he fall on his sword.... or his bullet button?

Amazing. The cartoon encourages us to make fun of ourselves. Yet, the only responses are cynicalRead More anti-everything conspiracy theories (except that bit about land developers buying the Oceanside City Council, which, no matter how cynical it sounds is actually true). Let's lighten up a bit.

Political cartoonist are able to get away with the things they do because it is labeled a 'cartoon'.Read More But the simple face is they are try to poke fun and wake up the masses as to what is happening under their collective noses. To 'lighten up' and not care about what is going on is suicide. We need to get in people who understand what is going on and want to work hard to change it. Yes, we have the best politicians that money can buy. So what does that say for the rest of the world?

MOST PRACTICAL ECONOMIST IN AMERICA urges pay cap on the District Attorney, and all others onRead More government payroll. What is the median FAMILY income in your city? Carlsbad, about $90K. 150% of this amount is $135,000…..already insultingly high…so let's cap it there.

A lobbyist is a person employed by a corporation. Democrats exist to criticize and cause problemsRead More for corporate America. The worst lobbyists of them all are those government employees who work at government universities and call themselves "professors.," most of whom are Socialists. They ensure that all students minor in Socialism, so that, via the Occupy Movement, the young, unemployed college graduates can identify where successful people live and work….so that government might target them for new Taxes….so that the professors can get undeserved pay raises. Mister Nehring, before Elon Musk announces that Arizona or Texas will be the location of his battery factory, ask him if would make them in Los Angeles if he could rent the entire UCLA campus, dorms included, for just $10,000 per month.

For decades, "leaders" in this country have insisted that everybody's life will be betterRead More if everybody owns a piece of paper that says "Bachelors' Degree." So, in Calif, with all of these government universities, we are excessively taxed; only New York is worse. The people, especially Taxpayers, have never rebelled against Socialist Thought Control, so now, the lefties are insisting that we will all be better off if everybody owns a piece of paper that reads "Health Insurance." Wrong, twice.

Take a look at the last sentence in the above article. Now, a brief reminder of someRead More "recent" California History. About 25 years ago, we had some people who were very dedicated to the concept of "no fault car insurance." I don't recall their identities, but it is fair to suggest that they were not members of the Trial Lawyers Association. They wrote a ballot proposition that would have reduced our premiums because of a significant reduction in lawsuits. The Trial Lawyers spent a lot of money to defeat the proposition, and The Lawyers Won!! (hooray, hooray!) The decent backers of the proposition tried again, either 2 or 4 years later, and the lawyers beat them back again!! (hooray, hooray!) If the socially conscious ballot writers are still around, the contents of the above article suggest that the times are right for you to try again. How can I be of help?

I hope they check for a valid drivers license with a matching auto registration before giving awayRead More these way overpriced seats .... my guess is a lot of the people getting these seats are unlicensed illegal aliens ...

You either have 2nd Amendment rights or you don't. What good is it to be allowed to own somethingRead More you can't have outside your house? I have read the conditions one must satisfy in order to get a license to carry. I don't mind the training class but the almost impossible task of PROVING you NEED it is extreme!
