These losses are always followed by campaigns of scorched earth where Democrats abandon any pretense of liberal compassion and seek vengeance against imagined wrongs as if theyContinue reading “A very brief history of post-election Democratic meltdowns”

Tech’s municipal-privatization creep

Tech continues its slither into all facets of local to national government by lobbying Sacramento-area officials to allow them to sidestep the municipal-contract process altogether. Tech’s proposal is based in part on the Startups in Residence program: West Sacramento Mayor Christopher Cabaldon called the program a success as it helped city officials think differently aboutContinue reading “Tech’s municipal-privatization creep”

Peaceful protests: Democrats seize the protest narrative

Politicians and protests are rarely a harmonious match. Politicians are often the focus of protests and are rarely in a position to speak in concert and share a camera with organizers. Politicians and police, with help from all-too-willing media, often portray protests as violent and focus on vandalism and property damage frequently caused by agentContinue reading “Peaceful protests: Democrats seize the protest narrative”

The shell game of police-union endorsements

The fallacy of police-union endorsements is they go to the farthest-right candidate, because those are the candidates most willing/likely to do the union’s bidding.
