Angry California Is Burning Again

Has anyone experienced the rolling blackouts or, God forbid, fires, that are now affecting California ?
My wife's cousin's county, (Sonoma, Santa Rosa) is having evacuations. Same thing happened to him last year but he got very lucky that the fire stopped at the main road from him. He's getting pretty sick of it, needless to say.

Liberal shithole policies have not allowed for any improvements.

Don't allow power companies to build new systems = Deal with rolling blackouts

Don't allow clearing underbrush due to environmental wackos saving flies and lizards= Burn.

Burn + rain = mud slides

fixed for accuracy.

Too bad a lot of good people have to lose and suffer because of that.

They have the right to vote. If their voices aren't being heard they should leave. At some point the only people left in California will be looking around and wondering where all the people that actually do something went.

Bingo! CA voters are getting what they've voted for. CO is feeling the same thing now with huge fires because clearing underbrush and dead trees from forests is no longer allowed, but they at least don't have rolling blackouts.

I mean; that sounds great...
realistically; they are out voted, and some can't leave.
I don't think knooger and his fam deserved any of this....or NAV and NOX...etc...

The rolling blackouts are caused by the green weenies who killed off the generation of electricity using natural gas because of the use of solar generation and wind. I have not been affected by any rolling blackouts yet.

As for the fires, my car that sits outside had a coat of ash on the car. You can smell it if you go outside from your house.

Nobody “deserves” it. When a state keeps electing people who treat homeless and illegals better than residents, and their government thinks the environment is more important than people’s lives, you get California.

I disagree.
The ones that vote those people in office, and the ones that allow votes for those programs do deserve it.
They get what they voted for.
The normal ones that oppose ridiculous things like shoplifting up to $900., allow pooping in streets don't deserve it.


But...you and I are shooting the same target = we agree = I'm brilliant and extremely handsome = yer a lousy golfer.

Leaving that shitbox state for Texas in 1993 was one of the smartest things I've ever done.

Last time I was in that part of the state, about four years ago, I commented to my wife and the others with us that there is an obscene amount of dry tinder every freaking where. When I brought it up with some locals, they all said "YES! And they leave it there because of the environmental policies that come from Sacramento and San Francisco." And it was completely obvious to anyone paying any attention that it was literally a tinderbox awaiting a lit match.

You think that is bad, wait until 2024 when Gaven "Nuisance" will run for POTUS as a left wing turd. He's been on TV a lot the last several months regarding the CCP virus. The last decent governor we had was Pete Wilson in the late 90's.

The state spend 20 billion a year supporting illegal immigrants and less than a billion a year on fire prevention.

This week alone, about 11,000 lightning bolts hit the state within 72 hours -- igniting hundreds of fires, Cal Fire spokesman Jeremy Rahn said. Statewide, there are a total of 367 fires -- 26 of them considered major blazes, officials said.
