Can't wait for that state to slide off into the ocean and disappear.

I bet we could sell it to North Korea for one helluva price. People in CA would straighten their attitudes up pretty damn quick

Yes, let's just eliminate nature's phenomenon know as natural selection, survival of the fittest. Let's make all of the degenerates equal in this society so our country sucks even more. Hell, let's just banish work. Who needs to work to make money? The government will just pay for everything, right?

Saw this earlier today, and the biggest issue is people arguing whether, or not, it's parody.

I thought for sure it had to be. After digging in a little more, I am not so sure he's not serious. Insane, but serious.

Today, a policy of universal orphanhood aligns with powerful social trends that point to less interest in family. Californians are slower to marry, and are having fewer children — our birth rate is at an all-time low.
Look how well that is working for black Americans.

What should happen is all the poor people having kids should let rich liberal raise them. Watch how fast rich liberals demand we cut off welfare to people producing kids they can't afford.

Why don't they just wait until the entire state is populated with gays and then the children issue goes away?

I was a kid growing up in California for a few years. The people there should like that idea since a lot of the kids there want to kill their parents. They'll feel less guilty about having to defend themselves from a kid that isn't actually theirs.

I grew up there as well. I'm ashamed of what that state has become. The author, Joe Mathews, writes for a site called Zocato, which is basically a sounding board for leftist ideology sponsored by Arizona State University (colleges don't get much farther left than ASU). He has a series of crackpot articles on there if you're interested in seeing what excessive drug use does to one's mind. Here's a telling quote from this article that proves how much California Sinsemilla this paragon has ingested:

Quote:
More Californians are abandoning the dream; a recent Public Policy Institute of California poll found declining belief in the notion that you can get ahead through hard work.
Really, Joe? Have you ever asked yourself how this happened? Over-taxation, outrageous rules putting a stranglehold on businesses to the point where they leave the state and other money wasting programs and unreasonable laws put in place by YOUR Democratic government. Not to mention many politicians so corrupt, it makes the Nixon Administration look like Mother Theresa's nuns. You had a golden opportunity to effect change with the recall of Gavin Newsom, and what do you do? Put him back in office. Then you come crying about how hard it is to get ahead.

People on the left are always the first to whine about their problems, but they never want to acknowledge that they are often the cause of their problems. As I've said in other threads...you reap what you sow.

And go **** yourself.

Simply put. Another nut job who thinks the individual is too stupid to succeed on their own and blames the troubles of those who can't on those who can. But then we dig deeper and find how it ties back to parents rejecting the democrats CRT in schools.

From his column:
Quote:
The left’s introduction of anti-racism and gender identity in schools faces a bitter backlash from parents. Ending parenthood would end the backlash, helping dismantle white supremacy and outdated gender norms. Democrats also would have the opportunity to build a new pillar of the safety net — a child-raising system called “Foster Care for All.”
