    No water, no money, no reason to stay.

    From Mike:

    I sleep a little better knowing that not everyone in California is a loony leftie. I took the attached photos on Rt. 152 between Fresno and Los Banos in December. This is part of the Central Valley where producing food for our nation is priority #1.

    Unfortunately I could not safely drive and snap photos of the sign stating “Obama’s wealth redistribution plan” perched atop a manure spreader or the sign stating ”And we thought Carter was bad”.

    Keep up the good fight.

    Just sayin’, I know for a fact that that stretch is full of Constitutional Patriots. And they hold the coastal Lefties in absolute contempt, and worse.

    At some point the marijuana crop will be affected and things will change.

    I first encountered such signs in 2009 on a trip through the Central Valley. To see the ripped up orchards and unused (and disused) land was truly disheartening. As a matter of fact, things were so bad there that even the Democrats of Visalia were disenchanted with the people they had sent to office.

    I spent an afternoon having lunch in and visiting the town of Coalinga. Coalinga was doing its best to put on a brave face, but it was hard. I wound up sitting next to a Harris Ranch feedlot cowboy at the Mexican restaurant where I had lunch. He had been a construction worker up north in Redding, but the recession had taken the wind out of those sails, and he was doing what he could to make ends meet and support his child. (Yes, folks, it is the smell from the Harris Ranch feedlots that knocks your car off I-5.) Believe me, being a feedlot wrangler is just about the least glamorous jobs on the planet.

    Subotai Bahadur is right when he says that stretch is full of Constitutional Patriots. One of the sources of their contempt for the coastal lefties is that the folks at the south end of the valley get blamed for their awful winter air quality, despite that the prevailing winds are from the north, sending the Bay Area lefties’ pollution down south, where it collects on the north side of the San Gabriel Mountains.

    If you want to make yourself really gloomy, cut across the valley from Hwy 99 to I-5.

    Victor Davis Hanson, of Selma, has written eloquently on the troubles there. Check out his essays.
