FALL SESSION 2019



BLOG POST #3,279 AT THE AICP-END



379 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020



In order to deflect blame from themselves, liberal politicians point their index fingers at our much-hated utility company, PG&E
Santa Barbara, CA 93102, 10-23-2019 Wednesday:  Yesterday, we began a discussion on how out of control environmentalism and environmentalists have destroyed California.  They tell us we are first among the fifty states and that we are on the cutting edge of, uh, well, everything so they say.  They always leave out the ‘positive’ part because there is no positivity, folks, we are first in having a Third World power system, first in having a massive disparity between the wealthy and the absolute poor, first in all manner of STDs, first in drug abuse and addiction, and the first in having most of the homeless people of the nation living here among us.   
Pacific Gas & Electric is catching hell over virtually everything.  Statewide (and national politicians from California) blame them for the horrible forest fires that have gotten out of control and have killed scores of people and caused billions of dollars in damage. 
Likewise, they force PG&E to follow all these onerous rules such as closing down our few remaining nuclear power plants which at one time, liberals saw as the answer to all our power needs, whereas now, they want to slam the door shut on all of them[i], hoping to avoid another “Chernobyl[ii].” 
The leftists also pummel and punch and kick PG&E and blame them for the horrible things occurring instead of blaming themselves, left-wing politicians.  This has been the case for quite a while and instead of working with our major utility company to make things better, they use them as their whipping boy so they can deflect blame from themselves onto the hapless power company because NO one likes power companies, right?
Now, PG&E has decided that in order to avoid the crippling lawsuits that come with their power lines catching forests and communities ablaze when a wildfire is already raging, they want to shut them down during “high wind events.”  So they have.  People are angry and forget about how they beseeched God for this to happen last year when various parts of the state were being consumed in massive out-of-control fires. 
Alas, PG&E recently shut the power off when high winds were plowing through (or rumored to plow through) some areas, and so communities found themselves without power for days.  Food spoiled.  Businesses were closed and money lost. 
Moreover, those ignorant enough to have purchased electric cars found that they could not charge their vehicles so if they had had to flee for their lives, well, they would have been like the poor people of Paradise, California[iii]- the poster child for humongous fires- trapped in the midst of a raging inferno with no way to escape the flames.
Add to that the fact that some poor senior citizen died who was dependent upon his oxygen supply.  Robert Mardis Sr, age 67, of Pollock Pines, El Dorado County, discovered that he lacked the time to find an alternative source of power so he could keep his machine running or get help and so he died, I believe within 12 minutes.  Twelve flipping minutes
The thing about poor Mr. Mardis is this: when the story first came out, there was NO disagreement over the cause of the death.  The man suffered from COPD, required oxygen so he could sustain his life.  When the power went out, he had no way by which, he could keep his oxygen supply going and so he died, quickly, and quietly
The coroner of El Dorado County, California, did an autopsy and claimed that Mr. Mardis did not die from lack of oxygen but from natural causes.  What?  The man was dependent upon oxygen, the power goes out, there is no electricity to keep the machines going and so he succumbs to severe coronary artery atherosclerosis, which came about because the man lost his breathable air supply. 
The thing about liberals is that they always point their scrawny fingers at their enemies, blaming them for doing the things they themselves do.  One poor old gentleman dies of ‘natural causes,’ because his oxygen supply suddenly vanished due to a power shutdown, move on, folks, nothing to see here OR we will blame PG&E.
Pacific Gas & Electric did not cause the fires and had they been able to maintain the wildlands and the forests in conjunction with federal and state forestry agents, been able to maintain their transmission lines and put them underground rather than having to pay out massive lawsuit settlements, many of the recent fires might never have happened.  Yet they did. 
IF power outages are going to become the norm of modern California, there is no way we can continue to crow about how great our state is.  State government is shuttering private prisons and slashing sentences[iv] for inmates at all levels of the system.  Every day, more and more of them find themselves on the streets in front of bus stations with nowhere to go.
If the power outages continue, what are we going to do with all the criminals running amok?  Blackened homes and businesses only invite crime as do over-stretched police agencies.  Add to that the fact that cops are fearful of doing something that could put them in a court fighting for their lives and Sacramento and PG&E are creating the perfect storm of conditions right for rampant violent and property crimes to occur.
Thank you, Governor Newsom[v], thank you, environmentalists, thank you California Democratic Party.  Although we failed to reclaim our state in 2018,  I think if things continue the way they now are that we will in November 2020 and again in November 2022.  Time for common sense to return.  Time for liberalism to die.  Time for us to hold on the best we can and to reclaim our state from those seeking to destroy it.

Back in the day, I was working at a hotel in Bakersfield, California, down on Union Avenue where I met Stinkbug.  It was still nice at the time, and the area was still the original "restaurant row" of the city.  Now, I am over 70 years old and work over in Santa Barbara, CA, as a food and beverage director for a fine-dining country club.  The pictures you see here of me are facsimiles created by up-and-coming Bakersfield, California, street artist, the famed Simone.  Clever work, dude, clever work.
