You’re Nuts, State of California

The entity known as The State of California is nuts. They’re mad at me because, I guess, in 2008 I didn’t declare my tax refund as income. I’m not sure how it qualifies as income. I didn’t have to work for it. I didn’t have to hustle or fight for it. I just typed in some numbers and they sent me a bunch of money. That qualifies as income? How do I do it again?

But today, our freeways are clogged virtually every moment of the day. As a result: California is now forced to institute a Read more

It requires a big, old, failing infrastructure, pushed to its limits with the influx of new dreamy-eyed residents into Southern California each year. To make matters worse, SoCal wants to be a desert. That’s its natural state. So it’s no surprise that residents are experiencing the panic and discomfort of its perpetual drought. Naturally, our state leaders wait until June to amp up awareness and pepper the airwaves with water conservation PSAs in a futile hope that people will realize how serious our annual water shortage is and then cooperate. Of course, by June it’s Read more

Gay Marriage Ban? What Gay Marriage Ban?

Uh, there’s this myth that gay marriage was recently banned in California.

 

Gay people can still get married; They just have to marry someone from the opposite gender in a loveless way just like they’ve been doing for generations!

 

Pfft! Gay marriage ban — You’ve got to be shitting me.
