CALIFORNICATION

Marx-gas

The state of California is controlled by Democrats. Democrats held the governorship, both houses of the state legislature, and all statewide elected offices. The state’s two U.S. senators and 40 of its 52 members of the U.S. House of Representatives are also Democrats -- presenting the clear and present danger of a tyrannical single-party system in California.

  1. Lack of accountability: In a single-party system, the ruling party can become complacent and feel that it doesn’t need to answer to the public or other political parties. This lack of accountability can lead to corruption, abuse of power, and a general disregard for the needs and concerns of citizens.

  2. Limited choice: A single-party system can limit the options available to voters. If only one party is in power, citizens may feel that their vote doesn’t matter and that there is no real alternative to the current government.

  3. Lack of representation: A single-party system can also lead to a lack of representation for certain groups in society. Other groups may feel left out or marginalized if the ruling party only represents a particular demographic or ideology.

  4. Stagnation: Without competition from other political parties, a single-party system can become stagnant and resistant to change. This can lead to a lack of innovation and progress and a failure to address the state's critical issues.

  5. Ideological concentration: Group-think and lock-step responses can severely impact the freedoms of California residents.

Unelected progressive communist democrat apparatchiks are abusing their power…

California Ban on Gas Appliances Starts With Jan. 1 ‘All Electric’ Rule

New homes and buildings that are constructed in 2023 will have to have electric supply panels and circuitry to support all-electric appliances and heating under a building code update approved two years ago by the California Energy Commission.

The new building code doesn’t ban the sale of natural gas appliances outright — that will come in 2030, in a mandate from the California Air Resources Board that is designed to lower the “carbonization” of structures and improve indoor air quality.

The new energy code was approved by the California Energy Commission in August 2021 and the California Building Standards Commission in December 2021.

It’s common to have a multi-year lag between approval and when the new codes take effect to give builders and their suppliers time to prepare.

[OCS: It also shields elected politicians from immediate public outrage and protest.]

In addition to the electric power hookup requirement, Prandini said, the new code requires solar panels and EV charging ports in new homes.

[OCS: It is almost seems like California’s progressive communist democrats are trying to cripple private housing and the individual ownership of vehicles.]

As California moves to all-electric for homes and businesses, many are questioning whether enough power can be generated and stored to serve the state’s 39 million residents. During heat waves last summer, residents were asked to refrain from using appliances such as washers and dryers and from charging electrical vehicles in the late afternoon and early evening, when demand for air conditioning peaked and power supplies were stretched thin. <Source>

Breaking: CA Enacts First Retrofit Mandates to Ban All Gas Appliances

California state government approves its first phase of "home retrofit" mandates to force homeowners to make costly switch from their existing gas appliances - estimated cost is $30,000!

On Wednesday, March 15 the state Air Quality Management District for the Bay Area adopted the first “home retrofit” mandates to force homeowners to replace all existing natural gas appliances by 2027. The District’s mandates cover Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, southwestern Solano, and southern Sonoma counties.

We expect the other regional Air Quality Management Districts to take up the home retrofit mandates in the coming months. 

Here's what's being proposed:

  • IMMEDIATELY: All new homes and buildings will be prohibited from putting in any new natural gas appliances – not just stoves, but all appliances such as furnaces, ovens, water heaters, etc.
  • 2027-2035: Existing homeowners will be given a deadline to pay for expensive home retrofits to remove ALL of their existing gas appliances – all stoves, ovens, water heaters, furnaces! The Bay Area got hit with a 2027 deadline; San Diego already announced 2033 is their target. Every week a new region proposes a new deadline for costly retrofits!

Here's how much it will cost you:

  • What will the mandatory home retrofits cost you? An average cost of $30,000 or more per home! (READ FULL COST ESTIMATE HERE)
  • Home owners will pass the costs to their renters thus reducing the stock of currently affordable housing or, alternatively, sell their properties and evict current renters.             

Bottom line…

I don’t recall voting to give unelected ideological-driven bureaucrats the power to change life in California without the consent of the governed.

These people hate carbon-free nuclear energy. These people would impose hardships on the state’s businesses and residents rather than using cost-effective clean-burning natural gas. These people want to reward their billionaire friends with mandatory use regulations to secure their special interest friend’s investments in unsustainable, unreliable “green power.”

There is no doubt in my mind that the California legislature, run by ideologically-driven progressive communist democrats and sexual perverts needs, needs to be decommissioned like a faulty nuclear reactor — with great care and precision, mindful of the deadly radioactivity and the potential to cause a catastrophic nuclear meltdown and explosion that would spread a fatal cloud of radioactivity over the land.

We are so screwed.
