Matty, it's unfortunate that you took the opportunity to exploit a tragedy and place blame with regards to anti-semetism. Your ignorance knows no bounds, you're a partisan to the core....Anti-semetism is an ugly plague which impacts the entire globe, and I have posed a simple question to you. Will you stand behind your hollow words , or would you support a clause in the 1st Amendment that would ban hate-speech?



Partisan????? now that's funny ...you are too much of a coward liberal to call out YOUR party and fellow liberals for their constant attacks on Israel and defense of Palastine, not to mention Obama and his buddy Farrakhan... wake up stupid..

Hate speech??? sure no problem.. we can start with radical muslim in their hate filled mosque , and radical muslim who bring that hate speech to college university and CONGRESS!!!

How do you ski without a spine?????



Maybe these guys can convince you I am right.......

Yeah partisan. You took an issue that has world -wide roots, and a horrible history and boiled it down to a few anti-Israel progressives, and college campuses. The common theme with Anti-semitism is hate and ignorance.

Matty, are you ok with Anne Coulter , and Donald Trumps anti-semitic slurs?



Not a few dipshit.....widespread , that's why Trump just passed a law to end it..
Trumps family is jewish, Trummp has many high powered jewish friends, and no president in our lifetime has done more for the jewish people...

You really are clueless...



OMG...doubling down on dumb, I see. Trump's son in law is Jewish, that's it.
You remind me of GWB when he said he cant be racist, he has African Americans in his cabinet...
Matty, there are about 6,000,000 Jews in the US. About 1,000,000 of them are in Brooklyn, where my mother was born and grew up. Very few of them support Trump, or ever will. If you were right, he'd get their votes....



That's it???? .....lol tell that to the Israels and their new embassy THAT NO ONE ELSE HAS DELIVERED...

Looks like the ortodox have all the brains and can think out of the box..

Trying to get rid of prop. 13, the libs have always hated it.

Major property tax increases are on the launch pad as California politicians try to repeal prop 13 by slipping it under the radar. California's Attorney General, Xavier Becerra is putting together plans to raise property tax revenue by eliminating the only thing keeping some people's property tax from sky rocketing, Prop 13.
Because they know it will be unpopular if presented as "Repeal Prop 13," Xavier Becerra has strategically relabeled it "Education and Local Government Funding." It's already on the 2020 ballot and much like the gasoline tax, it will be worded in a way that misleads California voters. People renting may see it as a way to get something for nothing, but the long term result will be higher rents to pay due to the increase in property taxes. People are leaving the state in record numbers, and many here are barely hanging on, this could be something that changes the face of California forever.


People are leaving the state in record numbers? According to the LA Times, California’s population grew by 141,300 people between July 1, 2018 and July 1, 2019–despite earthquakes, fires, rising sea levels and sky-rocketing housing prices. Certainly some people are leaving California for those reasons, and many of them are going to Texas where they will discover that life is impossible without air conditioning. But with a state population approaching 40 million, and with millions of Californians reaching retirement age where they can cash their house in and move to Idaho for much less money, the net change is trivial. But when you get your news from under a tinfoil hat....

I have been expecting California’s rate of population growth to slow since the total population surpassed that of Texas—and people thought it was great. There are certainly significant problems in California, and congestion is behind some of those problems—but NW couldn’t find those problems—or his ass—with both hands.

When you have nothing to say...

But wait, millions of people are fleeing California because of taxes, no?

The Golden State remains stuck in the slow lane when it comes to population.

The number of Californians increased to 39.96 million, with new data from the Department of Finance showing mostly downward trends.
They are rooted in fewer births, coupled with increased deaths among an aging population. The Golden State, however, has also seen changes in international migration, along with more and more residents leaving the state.

The estimates, which indicate that California’s population grew by 141,300 people between July 1, 2018, and July 1, 2019, nonetheless signal a 0.35% growth rate, “down from 0.57% for the prior 12 months — the two lowest recorded growth rates since 1900,” department officials underscored.

According to the agency, natural increase (with 452,200 births and 271,400 deaths) accounted for an additional 180,800 people to the state. Still, these gains were offset by losses in net migration — that is, the total amount of people moving into the state minus the total amount of people moving out. Notably, said Eddie Hunsinger, a demographer with the Department of Finance, even though the net international migration added to the state’s population, there was substantial negative domestic net migration, which resulted in a loss of 39,500 residents. This, said the department, marks “the first time since the 2010 census that California has had more people leaving the state than moving in from abroad or other states.”

Techno's post is actually the one I was looking for. A loss of 39,000 in a population of 39 million. That is 0.1%. One part in one thousand. Tell me Techno, is that statistically significant? Do you even know what statistically significant means?

How many of those folks are moving to North Carolina to help gerrymander and suppress votes to minimize the impact of African Americans?

Astonishing.

I'm proud that California is nutty enough to ban pesticides that cause brain damage. Perhaps this is an explanation for the stooges?

A ban on the sale of a controversial but widely used pesticide that has been linked to brain damage and other health problems in children took effect across California on Thursday, in a rebuke to the Trump administration, which has worked to keep it legal.

The chemical, chlorpyrifos, is an insecticide used by farmers to control worms, insects and other pests on a variety of crops, including grapes, walnuts, lemons, oranges, alfalfa and cotton.

But an increasing body of studies linked it with reduced IQ, attention disorders and low birth weight in children.

Meanwhile, as California’s ban took effect Thursday, Corteva Inc., a company formed last year by the merger of Dow Chemical and Dupont, announced it would stop making chlorpyrifos by the end of the year, citing declining sales.


“It’s about time that Corteva stops selling a pesticide that damages children’s brains and poisons farm workers,” said said Marisa Ordonia, a senior attorney for the environmental group Earthjustice. Yet the (federal) government must take a stand and ban this chemical.”

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency banned chlorpyrifos for residential sale in 2001. The chemical remained legal for farmers, however.

Following health studies that linked the chemical to brain damage and neurological problems in children, particularly the children of farm workers, the Obama administration began the process of banning it nationwide.

In 2017, the Trump administration, after heavy lobbying by the chemical industry, reversed course and said its sale would continue to be allowed. The U.S. EPA says it plans to complete a review of the chemical by Oct. 1, 2022.

“By reversing the previous administration’s steps to ban one of the most widely used pesticides in the world, we are returning to using sound science in decision-making – rather than predetermined results,” said Scott Pruitt, Trump’s former EPA administrator, in 2017.


The American Academy of Pediatrics issued a statement after that decision saying it was “deeply alarmed” by the move.

“There is a wealth of science demonstrating the detrimental effects of chlorpyrifos exposure to developing fetuses, infants, children and pregnant women,” the organization said. “The risk to infant and children’s health and development is unambiguous.”

Pruitt resigned in 2018 over controversies involving his first-class government travel and questionable ties with industry lobbyists. He became a coal industry lobbyist last year.

After a review of health studies by the California Environmental Protection Agency in 2018 concluded the chemical was linked to brain damage and neurological damage at levels in children at lower than previously thought, California moved toward a statewide ban.

That year the state Department of Pesticide Regulation also designated the chemical as a “toxic air contaminant” and recommended that county agricultural commissioners ban aerial spraying and require quarter-mile buffer zones to fields where it was applied.

Finally, last May, Gov. Gavin Newsom’s administration announced it would ban the chemical statewide. In October, Newsom reached an agreement with chemical companies to phase out the sale of chlorpyrifos by Feb. 6, 2020. Farmers with existing stocks of the chemical will have until the end of the year to use up any remaining quantities.

“If only President Trump’s EPA had listened to its own scientists and not blocked a federal ban of chlorpyrifos, millions of other kids would enjoy the same protections,” said Ken Cook, president of the Environmental Working Group, on Thursday.

Newsom also added $5.7 million to the state budget last year to fund research and grants into alternative, less toxic alternatives. But farmers say that work has yet to show results.


“Insects and crop diseases pose a real threat to the food farmers grow, and losing an important tool such as chlorpyrifos will leave food crops more vulnerable,” said Jamie Johansson, president of the California Farm Bureau Federation. “When it cancelled chlorpyrifos last year, the state said it would fund research and lead discussions into alternative insecticides. So far, those discussions have been disappointing. We need state agencies to be open-minded and realistic in evaluating ways to protect crops from pests and plant diseases.”

California’s ban is particularly noteworthy because California is the nation’s largest agricultural state, with $50 billion in agricultural sales from more than 400 crops and farm products. Hawaii also has banned chlorpyrifos and New York is working to phase it out by next year.

Data for 2018 developed by the Center for Disease Control. Death rate by gun violence per 100,000 population.

National average. 11.9
California. 7.5
Texas. 12.2

Trump continues to pander to the NRA by not supporting fund to study gun violence. Says facts are irrelevant to his base.

I’m glad that California is this nutty. Just think, if Bard and NW Moved to Texas it would nearly double their odds of being killed by a gun. But at least Bard would die with a gun in his hand, or holster.

As an additional note, if you actually look at the data, you’ll see that rural states like Mississippi, Alabama and Wyoming have death rates nearly three times as high as California. North Carolina’s death rate is higher than Texas, but not quite double California’s. Suicide by those stuck in swine shit ponds?
