California the oil boom and illegal voters
The weather has been mild in the 50’s and 60’s here since the day my plane landed in Texas, and though no excuse for not working on a new posting, it sure doesn’t help, (as witnessed by the photograph of me in a t-shirt right before going into the pool). My days have been filled with adjusting from a solitary life to one with a few more people occupying the same space. With my grandchildren around and a year of absence I try to make up for lost time, knowing I will never be able to regain the time lost while I was away. I am saying all of this so you may understand why my postings may be shorter, a shade softer, less biting than you are used to. That said I can not hold my tongue about these three items.
California… did that state do something to incur God’s wrath? For the past two years we have been hearing about California’s drought, water rationing and forrest fires, and there was even talk about recycling the gray water. Then this week came the rains, at times compared to what Noah must have endured in Biblical times. Then on Friday there was a call for forced evacuation of an area near LA!
Either to little rain and the drought and forrest fires arrive
or too much water and the sides of hills roll back into the ocean
It seems they can not win in California
Then again even the American citizen can’t win… For the past year our nation has been on the road to an oil boom not seen since the original boom in Pennsylvania and Texas. These new wells came about in spite of the fact that our government, though espousing oil independence, blocks efforts to drill in ANWR and off the coasts of the United States. Now when we reach a production level equaled to and surpassing any in the world OPEC decided to flood the market with oil and thus dropping the value of a barrel of oil making the newer American operators suffer to the point of having to layoff workers and cancel future drilling. Here in Alaska the price has not dropped as much as in the ‘lower 48’ but when you see a drop in price at the pump we think it is a good thing but once the new oil producers are out of the picture our fuel prices will climb once again.
If we are approaching the number one oil producer in the world
why are we still importing oil?
……and the winner is, the illegals! New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that illegals are allowed to register for the city’s municipal identification cards in 2015. They will not only receive free admission to the city’s top cultural institutions but he is willing to consider granting non-citizens voting rights in city elections.
With receiving free medical and housing and food assistance
plus the right to vote in the city
why bother entering the United States legally?
