    Open – California Dreaming

    Open – California Dreaming

    This California time zone is messing with my head.  I think I’ll walk into the desert, sit with my legs folded and palms raised towards the sky, and watch the sunset.

    A couple of things I noticed:

    A long-range rocket already has been fired from Gaza at an Israeli city.  The Shalit deal was not a ceasefire deal.

    Least shocking news of the day, ACORN is helping Occupy Wall Street.

    Not a big fan of Public Policy Polling, but I can’t not mention its poll that shows recall support against Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker losing strength:

    Walker’s not out of the woods by any means.  48% of voters in the state want to recall him, while 49% are opposed to such a move. But it’s not clear if Democrats will have a candidate strong enough to unseat Walker. The only one who beats him in a hypothetical recall is Russ Feingold. But Feingold’s already said he’s probably not going to run, and his margin over Walker is just 3 points at 49-46.  In May Feingold led Walker 52-42 and in August Feingold had a 52-45 advantage.  So even with their strongest possible candidate Democrats’ prospects against Walker are slipping.

    Just like I predicted.

    Did Perry have any choice considering he is running for President, Perry opposes Confederate plates.

    What else?

    I hope it’s not too late … after all, he is from back east … Professor, yes, to answer your question, surfer shorts are the proper attire at this time of year (still rather warm) in the desert … but please do us all a favor … Californians are just not yet ready for the surfer shorts with over-the-calf dress-socks look.

    Give us time.

    LukeHandCool (who is descended from peasant, but aesthetically sturdy stock … oh, who is he kidding … his wife and daughters have to tell him what to wear whenever they are to be seen with him in public).

    Scott Walker is the best governor in America right now, and the best that Wisconsin has had in a hundred years. Those cheeseheads in the 48% who want to recall him don’t understand that a small minority of tax scavengers will benefit by getting rid of Walker so they can get their hands back into the public till, but everyone else will be on the paying end if a Walker recall were successful. By the time it happens, if at all, more evidence of the good things he has done for Wisconsin should be evident, even to the cheesebrains.

    If a Walker recall were to be successful it would raise the possibility that good government just isn’t possible anywhere because the people are too dumb to know it when it’s right in front of them.

    Obama says we’re gonna be up a creek without a paddle if we don’t re-elect him cuz we’re gonna have to do stuff for and rely on ourselves.

    Professor, just six or seven miles up the “Palms to Pines” highway from PD is a great turnout/observation point from which to watch lights and shadows play across hills, mountains and gullies during either sunsets or sunrises, depending on your mood. Unless you’ve already boogied.

    Brown to seek sweeping Calif. pension rollbacks

    1st Mexican truck to enter US interior within days

    New San Francisco bridge built in China to be shipped to US

    But Wisconsin and Wall Street are ground zero. They may be related or just a distraction.
