Public education, COVID, and the future

It's been several weeks since the 20-21 school year ended here in Paso Robles, Calif. My wife and I are moving to the Central Valley so she can return to teaching at her alma mater—a public school that pays better than any public school district on California's Central Coast, and in an area with a […]

Is there a place in the MSM for Conservatives?

Yesterday, part of my substitute teaching gig at the local high school was basically monitoring study hall for a couple periods and making sure that the classroom doesn't turn into "Lord of the Flies." As I monitored the class, I also continued looking for something resembling full-time work. Writing, reporting, public relations, marketing, editing, photography […]

Today in Nanny-Statism

Today in Nanny-Statism: California Assemblyman Ian Calderon wants to bring the full force of the government down on restaurant waitstaff who drop that handful of straws on your table as they deliver your beverages. Assembly Bill 1884 would make it a misdemeanor, punishable by up to $1,000 and six months in county jail, if a […]

American ingenuity

Starting January 1st, the state of California changed its "assault weapon" laws to include evil black rifles equipped with bullet buttons in the definition. This latest crackdown will fail, thanks to good ol' American ingenuity. The original bullet button was created in response to a state law that defined an assault rifle, in part, as […]

Los Angeles Times Gun Ignorance

The Los Angeles Times is your typical big-city newspaper full of hoplophobic know-nothings whose gun ignorance is a badge of honor. Earlier this month, the Times opined, one of the nation's largest newspapers, that allowing concealed weapons on college campuses is a "silly, and dangerous, idea." As is to be expected when it comes to gun-ban advocates—and make […]

Veto Gunmageddon

My column in this week's San Luis Obispo Tribune highlights the effort by California gun owners to exercise a citizens veto over the dumb-as-a-bag-of-hammers "common sense" gun control laws passed this summer by our betters in Sacramento. Proponents have titled the effort: Veto Gunmageddon. I've already signed the petitions, but for those who are interested in […]

Politifact California is Stupid...

...and dishonest. And not transparent. And thin-skinned. (Hat-tip to Politifactbias.com for the original observation that Politifact California is stupid. They can remove the question mark now.) A couple weeks back, I took Politifraud's California incarnation to task for their failure to correct Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom's dishonest mischaracterization of one of their fact checks. I […]

The Broken California GOP

My weekend column for the San Luis Obispo Tribune can be found here and if features a discussion with San Luis Obispo County Republican chairman Al Fonzi on the broken California GOP and the realization that having Donald Trump at the top of the ticket will do nothing to help heal it. Fonzi is one of those […]

War on the 2nd Amendment

While guns sales have soared over the past two decades, violent crime has gone down. Not that most Americans know that, or are being told that by Democrats who reflexively talk about a "gun violence epidemic" that isn't actually happening. This is their War on the 2nd Amendment. While much of the country has come […]
