Guess its just “Bad Karma” in California
Since I grew up in California, and considered it my home — it will always occupy a special place in my heart. That is where my home, friends and beloved family were. . . and life was good. So good. Probably, we took much for granted. Our beautiful, incredible state was exceptional to say the least. We had mountains, ocean and endless shoreline, desert, open country, farming and citrus groves; world famous entertainment of all kinds. Aside from my too-many-to-count roses, I had also trees; a Magnolia, Olive and Eureka Lemon tree and a Navel Orange as well. I used to con my son into using his little red wagon filled with sacks of lemons up and down our neighborhood trying to give away my huge volume of lemons for free. Never could stand to see anything wasted. Imagine! Look what we are paying for those things now.
Tho it may sound like we dwelt on some palatial estate – we didn’t. We bought an early ’50’s ‘Aldon’ home for $15,275.00 for about 2.5% to 3% interest rate – Marty being a veteran, having the luxury of nothing down. Seems everything was possible then and we were blessed. Also doers! That 7500 sq ft property did seem like our paradise.That same darling home sold over 30 years later for more than ten times that, and 7 – 8 years later – another $100,000. I point this out to show that we were a know-nothing couple who had little more than a dream or two. We probably didn’t fully understand the meaning of all the choices and “rights” we were living with. It was easy to be happy, law-abiding and hopeful.
Los Angeles of course, was the movie capital of the world. The night-spots of Hollywood were the stuff dreams were made of. The Garment/Fashion industry was huge in L.A. And of course, even today California feeds much of our nation. How stuff changes! They are dealing with droughts, crippling the farming industry. Pity. While here in the eastern parts of U.S. we are being all but washed away. We’re paying heavy costs for our planetary indiscretions. Lets hope “leaders” waken before its too late. But this is climate change, not ignorant legislation.
As to that,. . . the reason for this post, I truly have always admired Jerry Brown. . . a very good man, wise and ethical, devoted to the common good. He was an excellent Governor back when I lived there. It is impossible for me to understand [based on what I knew of him], how he could ignore the rights of parents to choose and make any decision they deem best for themselves – especially their children. This isn’t just some ‘nice-to-have’ thing – – it is OUR RIGHT as citizens. We aren’t unthinking cattle or waifs needing direction. We are fully functioning, voting THINKERS deserving of respect, choice and privacy! Particularly in this case, based on unknown carriers “in the state of Florida.” Since when do we ‘cede’ our rights and be forced to bow down to organized mafioso “Pharmaceutical Greed and Might”?
It would behoove so-called authorities to understand that this nation of citizens, endowed with inalienable rights, who have means to put you in power, can as easily – can your butts out of power and set about cleansing our laws and procedures which have been eroding our rights and diminishing our way of life and enslaving us to systems not of our choosing. There was never a time when BIG PhRMA had the power to inflict death and destruction upon our masses and not be liable for the damage they do. But with their insatiable greed, they have managed to BUY their “untouchable status.” It ain’t right and everybody knows it. In the same way that they operate with immunity in manufacturing humanity’s “medicine,” they claim their product is useful and SAFE. Because they CLAIM it to be safe, doesn’t make it true – – AS WOULD BE PROVEN IN A COURT OF LAW. But it never gets that far. Their claims are phony and self-serving — lets call a spade a spade — TRUMPED up! (take that any way you want to). But they ARE the best there is when it come to hyping their toxic remedies to the choice-less population. . .and to the Physicians peopling the AMA.
If I were to touch on what I really think about why we are sick and tired and beaten down, . . . I might NEVER SHUT UP so, please, don’t encourage me to even think about sterilizing our soil, GMO’s, CAFO’s ad-infinitum. Besides, I wanted to ask you to get up-dated with informative Barbara Lowe Fisher and her latest video. When is she NOT wonderful, honest and fair? Jan
Your health choices just vanished. And if you try to sidestep this new oppressive law, you’ll either need to homeschool your kids or get sent to jail. Don’t like those options? You could leave this state. But it may not help, based on these two trend lines.
