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”

#CalExit and Silicon Valley’s secession heist

Donald Trump’s election as president opened a flood gate of flimsy analysis and hot-take solutions. As people grasped for ways protest his rapidly approaching presidency, the idea of California secession bubbled to the top again.

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. No doubt, Republicans couldn’t be more willing to partner with law enforcement. This could tempt a person into believing the opposing Democrat would be open to reining in police and police-unionContinue reading “The shell game of police-union endorsements”

Hillary’s Movement for Blue Lives

As if committing $1 billion to the police on Day One weren’t enough, Hillary has now promised to bring the “full weight of the law” against anyone who kills police, as if they don’t bring the full weight every time. “As president, I will bring the full weight of the law on anyone who killedContinue reading “Hillary’s Movement for Blue Lives”

The Scum Also Rises

I couldn’t have asked for more of an all-encompassing story to begin with than Ed Lee possibly being Hillary’s HUD (or Education) Secretary. It’s an open secret that Lee & Co. would flee town soon after Hillary’s election.
