However Desalination Plants Along the Coastline Will
- Flashback: In March, 2015 I wrote here if not for California’s wacky environmentalist policies and want for more overly burdensome and crippling regulations that are driving away business investment and opportunity legislators in Sacramento over the years, could have invested resources wisely for the future by constructing life-saving desalination plants along the coastline such as Israel’s Sorek Desalination Plant which provides 26,000 cubic meters or 7 million gallons of clean portable water every hour to over 1.5 million people.
Flashback: On the 05 April, I wrote here that California Human and Business Capital Exodus Widens — California has one of the Worst Business Tax Climates (only NY and NJ are worse) in the Nation.

(LA Times) California’s finances are reportedly in a “decidedly positive” position and by the Summer of next year analysts say, the state could have $7.2 Billion socked away in a rainy day fund.
“The state is enjoying very good fiscal health right now,” said Mac Taylor the state’s top legislative analyst in an interview. “It can withstand certain negative economic situations in the future.”
Only if one is gullible to believe such gobbledygook given its current $426+ Billion in debt but for those who still do ‘Believe’ California’s Fiscal Outlook by the Legislative Analyst’s Office — I have some prime ocean front property in the Mojave Desert that I can let go cheap.

Latest Climate Change Hysteria
(LifeNews) Last week, Gov Jerry Brown signed Democrat led bill into law that allows for doctor assisted death in California and this week, Brown vetoed a bill that would have allowed dying patients access to experimental drugs in an attempt to extend their lives — one knows where his priorities are.
From the Sacramento Bee story:
Less than a week after signing legislation allowing California doctors to prescribe their dying patients lethal drugs, Gov. Jerry Brown on Sunday vetoed a bill that would have let terminally ill people (to) petition pharmaceutical companies for access to experimental drugs before they are approved by the Food and Drug Administration.
The so called ‘Right-to-Try’ legislation had gained support in more than a dozen states and it sailed through the Legislature with nearly unanimous support but despite the wide latitude that Brown has given the Legislature to craft laws in recent years as he cleared his desk of hundreds of bills, the Democrat governor struck continued notes of caution.
On Saturday, Brown warned of a “precariously balanced” state budget (if one is willing to overlook California’s $425+ Billion Debt — I digress)
On Sunday, Brown vetoed not only the ‘Right-to-Try’ legislation but a bill to provide more training for child care providers and another measure focused on responses to sexual assaults at California colleges.
We see the same death-over-life pattern in Oregon which rations Medicaid so as to prevent some terminal cancer patients access to life extending chemotherapy but never rations doctor-assisted-suicide.

(Angelus) Last week the Democrat controlled California legislature voted to allow doctors to help their patients kill themselves, ramming AB x2-15 through a special legislative session (which Gov Jerry Brown had called for to deal with MediCal financing for the poor) after it earlier this year was pulled from the legislative calendar and previously was rejected by voters in 1992
“This is no way for our government to make policy on a life and death issue that will affect millions of individuals and families for years to come.
The people of California, especially the poor, the elderly, minorities and the disabled, deserve much better from their leaders and make no mistake, it will be these most vulnerable populations who are going to suffer from this legislation,” said Archbishop Jose Gomez in Los Angeles.
‘American College of Physicians’ President Dr. Wayne Riley, according to KPBS is asking former Jesuit Seminarian and now Gov. Jerry Brown, to veto the ‘Doctor Assisted Suicide’ bill saying that it’s unethical for doctors to participate in the intentional taking of a life.
“We acknowledge that some patients want control over the cause and timing of their death but it’s not our roll as physicians to provide that and therefore we, ethically can not participate in the medicalization of suicide,” said Dr. Riley.
In 2001 the ‘American College of Physicians & American Society of Internal Medicine’ wrote an informative and well reasoned treatise why physician-assisted suicide, raises serious ethical and other concerns and argues that legalization of ‘Doctor Assisted Death’ would undermine the patient-physician relationship and the trust necessary to sustain it.
