Multiple Democrats will also be running for the Democratic Central Committee on the March Primary. These positions are important, because the central committee helps to determine the direction the party is headed. In addition, Livermore voters will vote on the Downtown Hotel Initiative, a yes vote will confirm the cities plan and is great for the city's economic development.

It's headed in the wrong direction.

I'm not holding my breath but I suspect those running will foolishly argue/campaign that the government somehow does not regulate/spend/tax enough, not enough things people want are "free", enforcing immigration laws is "racist",someone doing well makes others poor, law abiding people need to be disarmed,etc. Completely the opposite of the limited government/personal freedom/free enterprise model this nation was founded on and has prospered with.

I would be overwhelmed with hope if what happened (again) in the UK yesterday took placed here in California, but sadly, we are a one party state that will continue to drive us out or drive us into the ground. I don’t have faith that serious candidates will be elected to seriously guide us out of this mess. The double use of ‘serious’ was intentional.

My comments are directed at the Democrats in our area who will have the ability to place Eric Swalwell back in office for, I believe, a fifth term. Please don’t do that. Don’t reward poor performance. Don’t allow a habitual liar, a disingenuous person that aided and abetted the seeds of hate in this country. We can’t do anything about Adam Schiff, Maxine Waters, or Kamala Harris, but you can stop Swalwell. The majority of our Democrat Congressmen/women have made us, in California, the laughing stock of the nation. We have been humiliated by these people, and the butt of jokes. You voting members who are Democrats have the opportunity to place better quality people in Congress that may actually work to solve our problems in this state.

As a Republican, we know that we are powerless. We are at the mercy of the people you install, and your track record isn’t very good, but you can change it. The Democrats own the problems that are destroying this once beautiful state. Please don’t waste your vote, be responsible, and do the right thing for all of us.

Back in October, Time wrote over at "Tim's Talk" about AB5, a bill to curtail the Gig economy that our genius Democrats had hoped to curtail companies like Uber and Lyft.

His concern was that it would impact the newspaper/opinion industry and you know what? He was absolutely right:

Web Link

Headline: VOX Media To Cut Hundreds Of Freelance Jobs

So there you have it. An unintended consequence of our Democrat super majority is that now they are cutting jobs of other democrats in the media (but I repeat myself), just so they can extract their pound from companies like Uber and Lyft.

I wonder how the Pleasanton weekly is going to fare with this ridiculous law?

How many of you Democrats love this law and why?

Why vote Democrat if all they want to do is cause people to lose jobs?
