Howdy neighbors and Hippies (some of those overlap…you know who you are!!)
It’s that time again. Global Pandemic (Not caused by our President…despite what you heard) Edition… Time to pull the lever for who we want to be. (although this time for most of you, it is more about who you hate)…case in point.
OMSmedia Pick for President: Donald John Trump – coach was winning super bowls (wall, economy, energy independence, jobs, Israel, ISIS, Syria, North Korea…and oh the Judges) before the pandemic…. now you want replace him with a dementia riddled dude who hasn’t won a fucking game? And you want to go from the solid moral compass of Mike Pence to the chick that rode on men’s coattails to get her power (and about to do it again)? …and…made it impossible to get the gun I want in California (Microstamping?….really!!)
All my Local and state representative races have Democrats on both sides and the current incumbents are not that bad…so stick with the evil you know and roll the dice. But I want to give some shout outs to others in state. LA DA Jackie Lacey gets a shout out….so does Eric Early and Mike Garcia…take a look if you are in their districts.
The California Props
Remember the OMSmedia Pillars –
- Bonds give money to people that don’t know how to use it.
- Always NO – Unless the law fixes a bad law.
- New Taxes must stay in their lane (Gas tax for road maintenance…etc…No general fund)
- Democrats and Unions are not a taxpayers’ friend
- Protect Prop 13
Prop 14 – NO
The California Stem Cell Research, Treatments, and Cures Initiative of 2020
OMSmedia Says: Hey lets get another loan so we can buy baby parts….whoo hoo…..no. We did this already. Stop trying to compete with research hospitals and medical schools.
Prop 15 – NO
The California School and Local Communities Funding Act of 2020
OMSmedia Says: Chipping away at Prop 13 again (Taxes based on initial property purchase) this prop reassesses value each year to get more revenue taxes to ‘help schools’ (doesn’t work that way…and no student will ever see it…pensions only)
Prop 16 – NO
Repeal Proposition 209 Affirmative Action Amendment
OMSmedia Says: They want to bring affirmative action back…buy killing Prop 209 (that got rid of it to promote constitutionality and fairness.)
Prop 17 – NO
Voting Rights Restoration for Persons on Parole Amendment
OMSmedia Says: Current Law (voting rights restored after parole completed) This Prop (restore voting rights when released from prison) WHILE STILL ON PAROLE….No thank you. (Democrat Vote Grab)
Prop 18 – NO
Primary Voting for 17-Year-Olds Amendment
OMSmedia Says: Democrats trying to add people not old enough to vote to the primaries. Fine the way it is. (Democrat Vote Grab)
Prop 19 – NO
Property Tax Transfers, Exemptions, and Revenue for Wildfire Agencies and Counties Amendment
OMSmedia Says: Bait and switch: Prop allows seniors to keep current property tax rate when moving to new residence (fire victims get the perk as well) …Seems nice…but screws everyone who inherits a house from their parents or grandparents. Prop 13 allows the property tax assessment to be based on initial purchase of the house when inherited by immediate family…that stays intact…. this prop removes that…and the house is reassessed at transfer.
Prop 20 – YES
Criminal Sentencing, Parole, and DNA Collection Initiative
OMSmedia Says: This one corrects the flaws for Prop 47, AB 109 and Prop 57 that flooded the streets with criminals. Makes new guidelines for what crimes get parole…and Forced DNA samples for some misdemeanors…I like me some law and order props.
Prop 21 – NO
Local Rent Control Initiative (Union fronted Prop)
OMSmedia Says: Both sides think it is stupid and snuffs out new construction…I agree with them.
Prop 22 – YES
App-Based Drivers as Contractors and Labor Policies Initiative
OMSmedia Says: Gives ride-share companies their rights back from the Union backed AB5 (Fuck You San Diego – Ron Burgundy)….nuff said.
Prop 23 –NO
Dialysis Clinic Requirements Initiative (Union fronted Prop)
OMSmedia Says: They want to close non-union clinics… fuck em!
Prop 24 – NO
Consumer Personal Information Law and Agency Initiative
OMSmedia Says: Gives you more control over your info supplied to businesses…seems nice…but adds a bloated bureaucracy – California Privacy Protection Agency…No thanks
Prop 25 – NO
Replace Cash Bail with Risk Assessments Referendum
OMSmedia Says: Gets rid of Bail…. Time to sing the Beretta Theme song…everybody now: Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time..no no no.
County Measure J – NO
Community Investment from County Budget.
This requires 10% of unrestricted budget go to BLM supported initiatives to fight systemic institutional racism.
OMSmedia Says: Ummm…no…. Since they seem know which of the laws that are racist…tell us and we will fix them….why do you need tax payer money to do this?
Long Beach Measure: US – NO
Double the tax (15 to 30 cents) per barrel on oil extraction in city limits…money goes to…..wait for it…..general fund.
OMSmedia Says: This reminds me of the story of Signal Hill…they annexed themselves and formed their own city (they used to be Long Beach) because of shit like this.
President: Donald Trump LAC DA: Jackie Lacey Prop 14 – NO Prop 15 – NO Prop 16 – NO Prop 17 – NO Prop 18 – NO Prop 19 – NO Prop 20 - YES Prop 21 – NO Prop 22 - YES Prop 23 – NO Prop 24 – NO Prop 25 – NO
