Run on ammunition as CA sets to require background checks to purchase ammunition.

Are there places you can actually legally shoot your ammunition with your single shot non replaceable magazines?

San Fransisco school board votes to paint over 13 depression era WPA murals depicting the life of George Washington, painted by a prominent Russian American art professor from Stanford University.

2 of the 13 murals apparently have something offensive in today’s standards, so all 13 must go.

Apparently it will cost $600,000 to remove the paintings which a board member referred to as reparations.

Berkeley becomes the first US city to ban natural gas in new homes.

I wonder how they make their electricity in CA. Nuke, coal, solar, geothermal or do they primarily use natural gas?

I know that there was at least one Nuke operated by PG&E not far from where I grew up on the coast.

Because they gave in to the environmental wackos and didn't build power plants when they should have, they buy alot of Electricity from Texas!

Coal mostly, nuclear too, but it's okay if we do it!

46% of the electricity generated in CA comes from natural gas.

California saw Texas deregulate its energy markets and tried to follow suit. Being idiots, they stipulated that if a power company needed to buy from the open market, it could do so exactly one day in advance. This parody of hedging with energy contracts rapidly bankrupted PG&E as buyers who weren't bound to insane rules bought up contracts and then sold to the Californian electric companies at obscene rates. PG&E sells assets, including a massive new natural gas plant. Jeff Skilling buys it and promptly shutters it, worsening California's self inflicted energy crisis. He then continues to prey upon the entire Californian energy market for years. Jeff Skilling unilaterally defeated the government of California.

That may seem underhanded and wrong, but the guy went to work every day in Texas, and he never made much by messing with ERCOT. Instead, he saw the complete lack of foresight displayed by Democrat lawmakers and then generated outlandish profits by trading on that.

There are a lot of highly educated Democrats. But when they stand up and cry when people react to their policies in service of their own rational self interest, I can't call them intelligent.

Hopefully Only In California.

20K in a quarter is a huge hit. If they are even making a ten percent net profit, it takes 200 grand in sells just to cover that expense alone. I am betting they don't make as much as ten percent net. What now? The shop owners raise prices to cover it and Kalifornia will pass a resolution forbidding the shop owners from raising prices to cover that loss? There is something extremely fowl about Kalifornia.
