Meet the California 3rd Congressional District candidates

Only a few of you who live in or are considered residents of a small part of Northern California would vote for one of these three men, but since they’re on my ballot I’ll post up some short videos of their beliefs up. Here are the two Republican candidates:

N Eugene Cleek

Ryan Detert

And here’s the Communist Democratic candidate:

I’m sure that Garamendi will pass a law to force Earth’s climate to never change again. Just be ready to give up most of your income and I’m sure he’ll find a way to force China and India to use less coal and keep their people impoverished. Next, he’ll put a giant soletta up to stop solar energy from reaching the Earth’s surface.

Jerry Brown: Total Loser

Just a few days ago Jerry Brown’s plan to get a 50% reduction in gasoline use, as a part of Senate Bill (S.B.) 350, has been removed from the proposed legislation. The amended S.B. 350 recently passed through the Legislature which still requires that 50% of the California’s electricity come from renewable resources by 2030 along with doubling the energy efficiency of buildings by 2030. Citizen Governor Moonbeam Brown had the following to say about the passage of S.B. 350: “Taking carbon out of the modern economy requires heroic efforts and tireless struggle. SB 350, in both efficiency and renewable energy, ratchets up the California commitment,” and “We have the technological means and now we have the legal mandate to reduce carbon pollution.” At least those of us in the People’s Republic of California get to keep our cars for now.

Governor Brown wasn’t too pleased when he had to have the gasoline reduction mandate pulled from the legislation. Going to progressive websites like ThinkCommunist ThinkProgress one would think that the oil companies and agro-business are wholly responsible for the failure of S.B. 350 in its original form. Does Jerry Brown think that oil companies have bribed the Legislature?  In an article penned by ThinkProgress just before the gasoline mandate was removed the author wrote: “The bill has been receiving the largest amount of pushback, mostly from oil companies, agro-businesses and a handful of moderate Democrats“. Could it be possible that many constituents represented by “moderate Democrats” might also not be supportive of such a mandate? Some of those moderate Democrats simply question how California will reduce its gasoline use by 50% since the legislation doesn’t explain how to reach such a goal. Jerry Brown was unhappy about the removal of the gasoline mandate and vowed to move forward with just the Air Resources Board. To hell with what citizens or the Legislature want. Here’s a clip in Jerry Brown acting like a total loser:

Those living in the Central Valley, unlike those in Silicon Valley or the Bay Area, are not rich enough (on average) to buy a $100,000 perfect Tesla car. Agricultural regions rely on gasoline/diesel powered cars and trucks, not electric cars. I’d love to see an electric car try to tow well, anything would be hilarious really. Unless you’re willing to pay another $20,000 for a battery pack that loses efficiency and capacity long before an internal combustion engine does, it won’t go very far even with just a few passengers. I wonder how far an electric truck could get while towing a 20,000lb fifth wheel trailer? How many deep discharge cycles would it take to ruin the battery? It’s not as if Governor Brown cares about farmers or water storage anyway. What’s more important than water storage and desalination plants is a $60 billion+ choo-choo train that no one is demanding. Let’s here some anti-revolutionary thoughts that some thoughtcriminals are harboring about the religion of Global Warming Climate Change™ and Citizen Governor Brown:

Can you imagine how solar panels, batteries, and money would be required to run the United States off of Solar power? How much would this change if a significant portion of the automobile fleet shifted to electric vehicles? Grid stability problems and other realities don’t matter, solar and wind power will cure everything! It’ll be great as the Ivanpah solar plant that routinely generates power at 1/2 of its rated capacity.

To close this post out, let’s here some more fun rantings from the Citizen Governor:

German thoughts on the Energiewende and Green Energy

A lot of leftists/greens/socialists would have you believe that green energy is cheap, scalable, and with few downsides, so much so that they can’t ever shut up about it. They just love to cite Germany’s “Energiewende” as an example for all of us to follow, it’s almost as if climate change is their religion. Never mind that Germany’s own government has been forced to accept that the Renewable Energy Act (EEG) is a complete and total failure. Also forget that Germany is burning more coal than ever before, nuclear power is evil and green energy is obviously the only way.

Perhaps it’s all a part of the Green plan? If electricity prices go up enough then we’ll just stop using electricity right? We can all just give up our cars, stop using any electricity, become hunter-gatherers, and live in caves. While we’re doing that, all of the rich celebrity environmentalists will hear of our new found climate faith and fly out in their private jets to watch as we all bow down and worship the Goreacle. It’ll be a sight for the ages.

Let’s ask some Germans what they think about the GroKo. It’s really quite hilarious.

Remember, whenever governments say something is free or cheap it must be true right? You just have to become more generous.

Here’s Angela Merkel and her adivsors admitting that the EEG has failed.
