California Wins Dumbest State Award in Landslide

Californians can see Greece from their bedroom windows, yet they voted for the status quo that's destroying their state anyway.

It’s the proverbial morning after and with votes counted, California has won the Dumbest State Award in a historic landslide of monstrous proportions.

All Californians can now see Greece from their bedroom windows.  No need to even go to the backyards and crane their little necks.

In the coming years, the unions, who have been bilking Californians in a protection-racket type scheme, will be taking to the streets in massive, destructive temper tantrums just like those out-in-the-cold workers in other failed socialist states across the big pond. It won’t be pretty.

All the while Californians have been lining the greedy pockets of union masters, they’ve also saddled their economy with the greenest of the green anti-pollution laws, which they’ve just voted overwhelmingly to keep in place.  At the very same time, they’ve neglected their infrastructure to the degree that whole cities will probably be condemned shortly as uninhabitable by anything higher on the evolutionary scale than rats. California’s sanctuary cities openly flout federal immigration laws with impunity now, but if they keep it up they’re going to face a loud demand from the other 49 for their statehood and immediate, irreversible secession by force.

Michigan voters saw their future Greece-like fate and changed course. Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Florida did likewise.  Others all across America’s heartland had the smarts to rein in out-of-control Democrat-socialists before their states hit the fans of bankruptcy history. They got it.

Californians still don’t get it.

Let’s start with the election of Governor Moonbeam. As I’m thinking of Jerry Brown’s reincarnated governorship, I’m already visualizing his mouth covered in duct tape for four years.  Honestly, I’ll be the first to admit that Meg Whitman, although a brilliant businesswoman, was not the most spectacular political candidate. But really, have Californians been so brainwashed that they mistake a forked silver tongue for actual abilities in the budget-balancing realm?  It’s enough to make bright citizens in the other 49 run for the barf bags. Never has a generation so disgraced their ingenuous, hard-working, self-reliant ancestors.

Nancy Pelosi’s disgraceful tenure as House speaker got the national drubbing she had been begging for since she first pranced around with the big gavel and unethically (illegally, probably) started her own foreign policy in the Middle East. This woman has so disgraced America, her state, her gender, her Catholic faith, and the Democrat Party that she couldn’t have won election as dog catcher in any of the other 49 states. But Californians re-elected Nancy Pelosi with a full 80% of her district’s votes. This is the woman who gushed that “Barack Obama is the man God has sent us at this time.” This is the woman who spearheaded the health care bill which started the avalanche that has destroyed Democrat political careers all across the land.  For crying out loud, Nancy Pelosi, one of the richest members of the U.S. Congress, has been one of the most egregious wasters of public funds ever to hit Washington, D.C.
