The Real Three Californias

Three Californias: it’s one idea that appeals to both idiotic white trash and the technocrat fascists whom they worship.
Us versus them, dude! Self-determination, dude! Local, brah! But it’s really about what it’s always really about: a legislated goldrush. In this case, that’d mean annihilating a tax base and maybe a commercial system that barely hold things together as they are.
For you consumers who don’t pay attention to who and what make this state go, here are some realistic, yea, likely inevitable scenarios for a rich man’s three Californias after the November 2018 election. Vote yes, vote no, but vote your ethics!

California:
1. Governor Antonio Villaraigosa, often costumed as a sea otter
2. Populated exclusively by billionaires paying each other no taxes
3. Populated exclusively by billionaires, no one minds that water from the tap costs $1.00 per gallon from those hicks in Northern California
4. Soon the entire entertainment industry is made of degenerate inbred celebrities from Los Angeles, who have to be made attractive using After Effects
5. The frigging air is “organic” and “artesanal”

Northern California
:
1. Governor Greg Gopman, because people fall for “redemption” in the media every time
2. Populated exclusively by billionaires and nonprofiteers
3. Constant warfare with the South over the aqueduct system, disguised as more-distracting hate crime
4. Robotic service industry: cooks, cleaners, landscapers, all of it
5. Every lightswitch and streetcorner is named after fucking Steve Jobs or fucking Ed Lee

Southern California:
1. Governor Don J Grundmann (after he gets booted from the North), because people fall for “redemption” in the media every time
2. Anything green to eat from Salinas or Santa Rosa basically costs a month’s rent
3. Robotic police, medical and service industry bought at a huge price from the North
4. Fresno finally gets to be the capital, with a banking system of crystal meth and slaves
5. Yosemite

In General:
1. Salinas, Pajaro, Santa Inez and Santa Maria valleys are to be bent to feed the Los Angeles Basin, while Sonoma is to feed the San Francisco Bay and the rest of the Northern state will likely be deforested to grow weed.
2. Northern and Southern states will be one continuous swath of freeway-dominated suburbs with no recycling, each population 50 million and therefore,
3. No government will ever be up for election not made of executives from Hovnanian, Alliance, Irvine Company, Webcor, Granite, etc., and therefore,
4. The Sierra Nevada will be completely deforested and exploited for all possible minerals in order to build houses and California’s tech gizmos, except Yosemite
5. Humanitarian crises at borders with California, each other, Arizona and Baja. At the border with Baja, a world-famous child-rape sales industry. The border with the North becomes the busiest and most violent border on Earth, bustling for a chance to work for Google, Apple, or Starbucks
6. 100% charter schools or straight-up private schools, and you can forget the state college system
7. The need for an enormous genocide against people of color in order to even get the thing to work

The fascist Silicon Valley billionaire Tim Draper, who really has nothing better to do than sponsor this bill, not pick up garbage, not rent housing to people for cheap because he doesn’t need the money, not help the state buy up old ranches for open space, said the following:
“Three states will get us better infrastructure, better education and lower taxes…”
Such a brazen lie gets past voters all the time. What he means is better control of infrastructure, education and taxes that favor the interests of the rich; not the self-determination of a working republic who don’t have to choose housing over healthy living, but the self-determination of plutocrats who redraw a country in their own image. One thing’s for sure, it already can’t get any worse for the immigrants who will continue to come because no in all three states will pick their own food or clean their own house…

UPDATE 18 JULY: the California Supreme Court, whom you really have to piss off in order to get them to work, found an embarrassingly lame loose end in the proposition process and took the Three Californias piece off the ballot, so that’s the end of that. This asshole Draper spent enough money on his campaign to have paid how many elders’ medical bills. But the real losers here are Californians, who still believe enough in the libertarian drivel jackoff dream to desire the creation of two Red States in order to pay fewer taxes that they can afford and in fact must pay in order to go around being Libertarians on Californian freeways and drinking from Californian pipes…

Ben Passmore Cartoon on the Nib

Congratulations to the Nib for getting a great writer, and to Ben for getting a bigger audience! The article is called “Black Lives Matter, the ACLU and Respectability Politics.” It puts the ACLU in their place, it tries to ram into your dumbfuck white internet-liberal face how Black Lives Matter is stuck in a compromise with its oppressor’s society (YOU), and, as always, shines the historical light on anarchism’s role in democracy, something this country’s sense of history badly needs.

Besides a lot of things, one thing I really dig about Ben is how much research he puts into everything, and how he makes his sources visible. Make sure to check out his other comics too.

Sin Barras: To End Prisons

Need to repost this article. It’s got an excellent source, and it also reminds me to look up that Angela Davis book about prisons being obsolete. Read on and do something about it!

By Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee A response to the debate on abolition in Jacobin Magazine. The weekend of August 19 2017, amid the second nationwide inside/outside mass protest against prison slavery in as many years, Jacobin Magazine published an article against prison abolition entitled How to End Mass Incarceration by Roger Lancaster. Lancaster argued that returning to an […]

State of the Union ’16

I don’t see why they don’t just keep the camera on the drunk, asleep or gossiping Congress. Notice that Warren, Sanders, McCain are the rare bright eyed and bushy tailed amongst them, Pelosi is pissed because she had a tanning bed appointment.

This should be called the “I’m fuckin repeating myself again” speech.

I really have a problem with how he keeps offhandedly dropping “terrorists,” “a handful of terrorists;” that’s way beneath his training. He should describe them by their values and not just label them.

“I’ve also talked to house speaker Ryan about tackling poverty.” Yeah if you mean cops tackling black kids and Ryan tackling human trafficked prostitutes, you’re right.

Probably the best moment is “When Russia beat us to space 60 years ago, we didn’t deny that Sputnik was up there. We didn’t deny the science…”

Followed by a terrible moment: “…meanwhile we’ve cut our oil imports by 60%…” and the Missouri river will literally NEVER heal from the contamination from the Bakken formation under Williston.

Look at Paul Ryan’s smile. “I forced my dick down a Vietnamese girl’s throat today and filmed it, I’m on Instagram.”

This part where he says that policing the world is bad, Iraq and Vietnam were a lesson, and then enumerates how we’re rocking the middle east with thousands of missile strikes is gross. He never chooses peace and prosperity or war and occupation! You can’t cheerlead for both sides! And look at these assholes standing up. Applause courtesy of Lockheed and Raytheon.

He sounds like Bush and then says we’ll mobilize the world to work with us! You can’t do both sides, god dammit! As Hafez wrote, “I want to tear this coat of hipocrisy!”

Liccardo Inaugurated Mayor of Rich, Homeless, Slaves

liccardoinaugurationA post for all “pro-business,” “pro-innovation” politicians who build skyscrapers and raise the liberal president’s stock market on the backs of thousands of local homeless citizens and victims of human trafficking and slavery. Get out the wheat paste, people! Stick this meme to REAL walls! Never again can a mayor of San Jose enjoy the luxury of a tenure without retaliation from the people he vowed to oppress when taking the oath of office. And that goes for his homeboy Cortese, too.
