California Legislature Moves to Legalize Marijuana

California is bankrupt with surging unemployment and a population shrinking by a third of a million people a year; meanwhile state lawmakers are working on legalizing Marijuana.

First, they estimate nearly a billion dollars in tax income based off an estimated consumption of Marijuana, considering and Marijuana is largely illegal, I consider their estimate unreliable. Second, we must assume the vast network of illicit drug producers, traders and customers will suddenly want to start paying taxes, it’s important to keep in┬ámind that successful business without taxes is far more profitable for producers and far more affordable for consumers. Considering the acceptance of illegality of this industry and it’s consumers I doubt much tax income for the foreseeable future.

If the state of California is really serious about financial solvency, it needs to enforce the anti union laws against the state workers union and cutback on public housing and welfare.

The problem isn’t the section 8 people, the problem is the state being broke, which can be corrected by breaking up the illegal state workers union and by cutting back or eliminating section 8. Legalizing illicit drugs and identifying new tax income opportunities isn’t going to correct state leadership which isn’t interested in balanced check books, what’s gained without sweat is given away without regret, and that is how the state treats tax income.


Nuclear Energy



I visited the Rancho Seco Nuclear Generating Station yesterday afternoon. The power plant was decommissioned by popular vote in 1989. The facilities cooling towers on a clear day can be easily viewed from the California State capital in Sacramento, no doubt an powerful reminder to the state politicians who allowed the decommissioning of California’s power plants contributing to an energy crisis and the recall of Governor Grey Davis. The property is now a park with lakes abundantly stocked with fish. Around the lakes is an eleven mile nature trail. Surrounding the park are vineyards that stretch over the horizon, the vineyards are only interrupted by the occasional upper class home; all with exciting views of the decommission nuclear power facility.
