386 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020

DONALD TRUMP IS CORRECT WHEN HE SAYS ‘I’M ALL YOU GOT IN NOVEMBER 2020’



There is a way by which, fossil fuel companies can defend against the so-called Green agenda…
Visalia, CA 93277, 10-16-2019 Wednesday:  Good morning, my friends.  It is always fun knowing that at one-minute past midnight, we can meet and explore the issues of the day.  I have had this thought that has titillated my mind for what seems to have been several weeks, one I would love to share with you about HOW the fossil fuel industry in the United States can grab the ball back on positive public relations and run with it, slapping down all these psychotic GREENIES[i] running around who want us to rely on wind power, solar, and whatever other crazy stuff they can come up with.  I am telling you California is already on a downhill slide that I think is going to force some tremendous changes in state government in 2022[ii].  Folks, they cannot come quickly enough and here is a way by which, the fossil fuels industry can come out on the right side of it.     
Here is the deal: Alaska, Norway, Saudi Arabia and other oil and natural gas regions that care about their citizens give them a dividend each and every year or at least set funds aside to help them.  They give them ‘their cut’ of the profits reaped from oil production, refining, and the exportation of it.  Imagine if YOUR family received a check every year, sometimes great, other times good, and sometimes not so much, but still, you received this money all because you are a citizen where the natural resources are produced and your government believes you should participate in the shared wealth.[iii]
This would immediately encourage everyone living in these areas to want to participate in the maintaining, promoting, and wellbeing of these industries and corporations.  People would want them to do well, to continue doing well, and people would be more inclined to stand up for them when liberal nuts are out there trying to bash and destroy them. 
I recently read an article about Norway’s sharing the wealth with its citizens.  Oh, liberals always like to point out that Scandinavia represents the ‘socialism’ they want to force on us.  Social care and concern is far different from ‘socialism,’ meaning welfare states such as Norway, Sweden, Denmark, and Finland are nowhere near being socialists as are Cuba and Venezuela and North Korea[iv]
Substantial difference, friends, but the sad thing about Venezuela, is that once they were the wealthiest petroleum-producing nation in the world.  Look at ‘em now, eating zoo animals and Caracas-style roasted rat pups on a stick, and fleeing like nuns from an oversized gay pride parade in downtown San Francisco.
Back to my article, I read it online at Money.[v]  In it, writer Ian Salisbury writes about how the government of Norway has ‘set aside close to $200,000 per each of its 5.32 million citizens.’  Now, this is amazing and this is how things should be done. 
Likewise, the people of Alaska share in the mineral wealth produced in that state and have for a long, long time.  This has been one of the ways the nation’s 49th state entices people to settle there.  I mean, if you are someone who is used to plenty of sun, relocating to a place where you seldom see it takes something else to encourage you and yours to come and stay. 
We know, too, that many things in Saudi Arabia and other Gulf State kingdoms are provided to their citizens as a means of sharing the wealth and buying them off from overthrowing their governments.  I would say, if I lived there and knew I could do most anything, short of becoming a member of the monarchy but could attain education and training and anything else, I think I would be an incredibly happy camper. 
Here in the Lower 48, there might be a smattering of places where oil revenues are shared but I would have to research it.  What I am getting at is this: IF the big oil producing companies and conglomerates want to woo people to their side in this time of Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Julian Castro, Beto O’Rourke, Mayor Pete, and other far-left, fire-breathing Marxists[vi] wanting to force Venezuelan-style socialism down our throats, this is how you would do it- with a tax-free annual wealth dividend.    
Our Marxist governor, Gavin Newsom[vii], is signing one executive order or bill after another hammering oil companies with fines and more prohibitions and shutting down exploration and oil production on state land.  He knows that oil companies are a big boon for California when it comes to paying taxes but he thinks he can live in his castle while illegal aliens till the land, depending upon government largesse and freebies to keep them in check.  He does not give a bat crap about any of us other than the retention of raw power.
We hear a lot of crazy things coming from the left which is good for us.  They are no longer afraid of us to hide in the shadows, pissing their politics into everything of importance like rodents and other vermin does to food stocks if not kept in check.  We must use their words to control and defeat them as if we don’t, they will do the things they are pledging to do to us and boy will all the naysayers and disbelievers and skeptics who thought they could control them will be the ones riding the wagons to the guillotine.  It is what it is.
Friends, it’s not to late to do something about this.  I think we are going to win a massive election in November 2020.  Donald Trump is correct when he says, “I’m all you got; you have no choice but to vote for me.”  He is right.  Whether you love him or not, he’s all we got standing between us and Cuba, Venezuela, and North Korean-style despotism. 
Manana.

The above cartoonish caricature of me by Bakersfield, California, by up-and-coming street artist, Simone, resembles me back in the 1980's when I was an Executive Sous Chef at a hotel in Monterey, California, 10-20 years later.  I originally came from Salinas, California, spent time in Fresno and Bakersfield, and currently am working at a fine-dining restaurant in Visalia, California.  I began cooking in 1967 when I apprenticed under a top chef working in the Napa Valley.
Chef James “JT” Tobiason writes from Visalia, California.

Chef James “JT” Tobiason is a member of the CONSTITUTION PARTY OF THE UNITED STATES but due to it being somewhat nonexistent in California, votes for either the GOP or the Libertarian candidates.

[i] On June 03, 2017, Chef Lilah, a friend and colleague, wrote a magnificent post on the climate Marxists.  Please, seek it out.
[ii] When Jerry Brown was governor, he had a charmed life, he was far left but he knew when to pull back.  Little Gavin Newsom, aka the “Smiler,” lacks any warmth or personality and is slamming one far-left liberal lunacy down atop us, one after another and many believe that if we do not recall him first, he and his administration will lose in 2022.
[iii] In this respect, YES, American corporations could do so much more to better society and to be seen as friends and allies but they don’t, they would rather offshore their money and loot as much wealth out of the country as possible.  If they would jump aboard a ‘share the wealth’ annual dividend plan every year, the liberal minority seeking to inflict the Green New Deal down our throats would not stand a chance of getting anywhere near it.
[iv] The difference between European style ‘socialism’ and that of the Third World hellholes is like night and day.  Senator Bernie Sanders is insane when he tries to say both are the same.  No, they are not and he should stop with the lying. 
[v] A great online source for serious economic news.  Sign up for updates and alerts, do yourself a favor.
[vi] If any of these people get their way, our country is going to be f**ked.
[vii] We all hope a recall effort occurs and soon because this man is a nut, a frigging, flipping nut and he needs to go the way of his mentor, Gray Davis, the last governor to be removed via the recall process in California.
