      We’re being asked to conserve electricity between noon and 10pm here in the SF Bay Area. But unlike elsewhere, we’ve passed legislation to begin to address our electrical problems. We’ve also ben working to reduce the severity of the damaged caused by wildfires in urban interface areas. (Almost none of California’s electricity is generated by coal. By law, our utilities are mandated to annually increase the percentage of renewable energy they utilize – and they’re actually ahead of schedule!)

      A Republican-nominated Federal Judge recently struck down a 30-year-old ban on semi-automatic weapons in California. The same bad actors that you’d expect were behind the lawsuit. It’s on hold while the ruling is being appealed.

      • Apparently a lack of education is a necessary qualification for Republican politicians. Trump staring up at an eclipse with no protection for his eyes. MTG thinks that Jewish Space Lasers™ cause wildfires (Trump thought the problem was that the forests, mostly controlled by the Feds, weren’t being raked). Devin Nunes tried to sue his own cow. Cawthorn lied about the accident that put him in the wheelchair. And then there’s Gohmert…

        Alternatively, they need to have a history of sexual improprieties just like Trump: Cawthorn (sexual harassment) and Gaetz (statutory rape).

                • Republicans want us to think that everything was better in the past. But they cherrypick the bits that they like and ignore the rest.

                  Up until the 1920s, the US had an open immigration policy (for Europeans). You just showed up at Ellis Island and they’d pretty much let anyone in unless they were sick (on the other hand there were legal bans on Asian immigrants through most of the first half of the 20th century).

                  In the Fifties, the maximum tax rate was 90%! Businesses were strongly incentivized to reinvest profits into research and development and expansion, not dividends for investors. In the early days of our income tax system, few people were actually taxed and those who were could not keep their tax records private – newspapers used to publish names and taxes paid. The Fifties might have been a golden age for heterosexual, white, cis-males, but they were relying on the suppression of women, People of Color, and LGBTQ+s. Even Catholics were looked at with suspicion as unAmerican due to their supposed allegiance to the Vatican. (And we don’t even need to think about Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Native American religions, Pagans, Atheists, and Agnostics and their perceived ungodliness.)

                  The percentage of eligible voters who participated was much higher just after the US Civil War ended and African-American men were allowed to vote than it is today. The percentage dropped dramatically as restrictions were placed in an attempt to disenfranchise Black voters. Voting increases as eligibility expands (beyond those who have become just eligible), and contracts more severely than just the targeted voters would account for.


                  There are other examples… :-(
