California Spends $100B/Year on ‘Fairness’ While Its Infrastructure Crumbles

(Forbes) Welcome to California. It is a state of a perfect set of laws – at least in the minds of those wedded to the legislative pursuit of social justice. Under the one-party Democrat rules, spending on fairness tops $100 billion every year. Meanwhile, the basic infrastructure of the state, so necessary for the economy long and short term, is collapsing.

.

The California legislature has been busy making the news these days. They are determined to fight President Trump tooth and nail – and they are putting the taxpayers’ money where the legislature’s mouth is.

California Democrat after Democrat has decried President Trump. The day after the election, a “Joint Statement from California Legislative Leaders on Result of Presidential Election,” issued in part by California Senate President pro Tempore Kevin de León (formerly Kevin Leon), stated:

“While Donald Trump may have won the presidency, he hasn’t changed our values. America is greater than any one man or party. We will not be dragged back into the past. We will lead the resistance to any effort that would shred our social fabric or our Constitution.”

The legislature hired former Obama Attorney General Eric Holder as legal counsel for their fights with the federal government. Their new state attorney general, Xavier Becerra, was appointed “to protect California’s economy and our sensible policies on climate change, health care, civil rights and immigration,” – so said Governor Brown who made the appointment.

.

California, of course, is the front-line for Sanctuary Cities – so many of which have also pledged to fight Trump. Cities like Los Angeles, San Francisco and Sacramento prohibit law enforcement from cooperating with immigration authorities – Kate Steinle notwithstanding. They are all willing to risk millions of dollars in federal funds for their current residents essentially to provide social justice for those here now illegally and in the future….

California: The Physical Collapse Of A Social State

.

More proof that liberalism is a mental disorder.

.

More proof that liberalism doesn't work.

.

More proof that States and inner cities run by liberal politicians results in deterioration.  They want open borders and health care for everyone.  How's that supposed to work?

    It was supposed to work with the illegal Mexican labor who work in our California fields, etc…
    In other words, California is the biggest producer of food and wine in the USA.
    Furthermore, California makes a LOT of money from Hollyweed and Silicon Valley, so it has been able to afford to be a “socialist” State.

    There are a number of cities and towns around our country having poor infrastructures. More are added to the numbers which we all know the liberals will sit back and watch everything go to pieces.
    Inner cities ?
    Barack “lil Cease” Obama and his regime conveniently overlook this problem,especially in Chicago. President Trump continuously promised to help.
    Interesting to see this dude not helping his own and the surrounding infrastructures. Low infos must not mind how they are living as the liberals keep them in their places.

        You may not know this, but the maintenance of roads is a state obligation, that extends to bridges, they have to ask for federal grants to do the work & the feds tell them how much money they have to raise to get a grant for the rest. My county chose as it had the right to do in a commonwealth state to take care of all the roads within, itself which allowed the county to keep a lot more of the taxes collected therein. Dams are a slightly more grey area, they could be under a maintenance contract with the operators, they can be state even local domain & they can be a national strategic asset maintained by the Corps of Engineers. Rails are mostly privately owned & maintained by freight companies such as CSX. Oil rigs are under federal regulation, but operate in areas designated by state rules. It’s okay that you don’t know this & can’t understand why we like it this way, you don’t have to, we prefer our states to be more independent & the federal government to be less personal.

          what the fuck has the majority of that got to do with my post?
          .
          perhaps you should be explaining this shit to the pfft fella
          after all it was his “Barack “lil Cease” Obama and his regime conveniently overlook this problem”
          that i was replying to
          .
          that and that alone
          .
          explain to him that it’s okay that he doesn’t know this & can’t understand why you like it that way, after all he doesnt have to, perhaps he doesnt prefer your states to be more independent & the federal government to be less personal.
          …though that last part tells me you quite obviously are confused to how we work it up here
          .
          you give the impression that you figure it doesnt work in a somewhat similar fashion…perhaps because canukistan is a socialist state run by a queen (like that makes any sense)
          .
          youre always trying for the digs spunky and they always fall short
          .
          your superiority underwhelms me
          .
          maintenance of roads= provincial minus trans canada
          this includes bridges
          Dams provincial and private falling under provincial and federal regs
          Rails are mostly private (CN CP bc rail etc)
          Oil rigs are under federal regulation, but operate in areas designated by provincial rules
          .
          but youre right spunky
          i couldnt possibly know how it works in your country, cause you guys do everything different and keep everything secret

          Obama did ignore Chicago’s infrastructure needs, including a rail bypass that is desperately needed there & would be funded by a federal grant & possible even see the earth works done by the Corps of Engineers. Again I don’t expect you to know these things since this isn’t your home, it’s just my habit of listening to NPR that informed me about the massive rail issues in the Chicago area & the consequences of it.

            Does he do it to hide his comment?
            Does he do it because the chain is extremely long & he’s tired of scrolling? You are after all not worth this much effort as it is, but Jesus demands I give you a little attention here & there as I can afford the time because every soul has the promise of redemption, no matter how few fulfill it.
            Does he do it because you’ve made it so painfully clear how deeply it bothers you?
            .
            Hmmm, folks what do we think is the most probable reason I may comment my own comments instead of painstakingly managing “chain integrity” with Agnes?

        Instead of maintaining our roads, bridges and dams, the State spends 100 billion on making sure everything is fair. Instead of using the funds for those repairs they make sure that illegals are taken care of open borders free health care…..i.e sanctuary cities. .. transgender bathrooms. … etc. They pay Holder 25k a month to stop Trumps from enforcing federal immigration laws and how about that money spent on global warming? Are we getting our moneys worth..
        .
        Are our tax dollars healing the planet? LO phukin L!!
        .
        Are they studying what’s going on with the money we’re spending on global warming. Has all that money stopped the warming and the melting of icebergs. .. eh comrade??? Answer me damn it!!. What do you think. ??

            Regardless, the state is not prepared when unusual events happen like a year with torrential rains. They run crying to the feds for more money. Btw, wasn’t our tax dollars going for climate change? What’s that money going for but for being ready when the climate makes drastic things happen.
            .
            comrade, if the planet is warming like you ‘flat earthers’ of today think, that means that there will be more water due to ice caps melting. So, are you moving to higher ground? Are you preparing in anyway.??

          What is the concept of carbon credits?
          DEFINITION of ‘Carbon Credit’ A carbon credit is a financial instrument that allows the holder, usually an energy company, to emit one ton of carbon dioxide. Credits are awarded to countries or groups that have reduced their greenhouse gases below their emission quota.
