Gasoline prices averaging $6 a gallon in California

Gasoline is averaging and even exceeding $6 a gallon here, while in Arizona it's averaging $4.65. Part of that is because Governor Newsom passed Senate Bill X1-2 into law earlier this year. It set up a new bureaucracy called the Division of Petroleum Market Oversight to control gas prices, and it does that by adding more regulatory compliance costs to oil companies, which are then passed on to consumers. The genius of Newsom.
Calfornia should be a place for only wealthy people, and anyone who can't afford to put $20,000 of solar panels and a $10,000 battery on their $1 million home, so they can charge their $80,000 electric car, is just a silly poor piece of crap who doesnt deserve to live here 😂 As long as the 0.7% transgender population can find the right bathroom, that's what really matters to our economy. Newsom for president in 2024. Make America California 🤣

The Climate Emergency Nonsense

We're in an interglacial period within an ice age. Permanent ice caps at the poles is not a normal part of Earth's climate. The sea level has risen almost 400 feet since the last ice age ended 11,500 years ago. Global temperature has risen a few degrees celsius during that time. The idea that human civilization arose during a period of unusually stable climate is complete nonsense that's not supported by any science. In Roman times citrus and grapes were grown in Britain. There was also the medieval warm period. During the last interglacial period 125,000 years ago, sea level was 120 feet higher than today. Hence why we hear "This is the hottest climate in 120,000 years". People will just have to get out of the way as sea level rises, they won't have any other choice. The global climate is so cold right now that most of the biodiversity is confined to only the warmest parts of the world, the coral reefs and rainforests of the tropics. As temperatures warm this biodiversity will be able to inhabit more parts of the world. Hundreds of millions of years of carbon capture in the form of coal, oil, and limestone has helped usher in this ice age. At one point during the last glacial period, atmospheric CO2 got down to 180ppm. If it gets down to about 150ppm plants can no longer photosynthesize and they die, along with all the life on Earth that depends on them. We need to get atmospheric CO2 back up to 800-1000ppm where it was for most of the last tens of millions of years. Don't believe the hype of climate alarmists, there is nothing in the science of climate change that says it will be the end of the world, the end of civilization, or the end of humanity. Yes the climate is changing, no it's not going to kill us or the planet. Climate alarmists are using fear to grab power, control, and make money. If they have their way we will be living on a frozen lifeless snowball.

Neo-Marxist Ideas About the Wealthy

This kind of thinking is based on various false ideas.
The first false idea is that because some people are very wealthy, others must therefore be poor. It's as if there's only one pie to be had and if someone gets a bigger slice of it, then everyone else gets a smaller slice. It doesn't work like that.
Also consider that you've helped to create those wealthy people by buying the products and services they created because you want or need them. Entrepreneurs get wealthy because they're more creative, more motivated, harder working, more business savvy, and luckier then other people. They create products and services that are new, or better than what's already available, and customers like those products and services, so they're willing to pay for them. There is plenty of opportunity in the world for you to get wealthy, but you're not creative, motivated, hard working, business savvy, or lucky enough.
Another false idea is that the wealthy are somehow leeches on society, sucking off the poor working schmucks to get rich. In the US the wealthiest 1% pay 42% of all federal income taxes, the wealthiest 10% pay 73%, and the wealthiest 50% pay 97.7% of all federal income taxes. So it's actually the poor schmucks who are the leeches on society. Who said they should get a free ride through life if they can't compete in the world?
And whoever said the person on foods stamps was a problem, other than being a leech on society.
And then of course there's the neo-Marxist idea that rich people are simply evil, which is mostly based on jealousy and envy rather than any rational thought process. And from the same people who dream of being rich some day. In reality, the wealthy are great philanthropists, donating enormous sums to great causes, for example the Rady Shell at Jacobs Park in San Diego, built mostly by donations from ultra wealthy people, just so ordinary people can enjoy themselves. The wealthy don't have any obligation to share their wealth with anyone, yet they do. 
So just be happy with what you are, a schmuck, a nobody, it's nothing to be embarrassed about, you just don't matter much in the world and will never be important or wealthy. Get over it. 😊

And speaking of parasites on society, this message was brought to you by the Grace Methodist Church, pushing the false narrative of an afterlife for power and money.

Democratic Hypocrisy and Virtue Signalling

New Jersey governor Phil Murphy, while seeking election in 2017, insisted on making New Jersey a sanctuary state, saying sanctuary policies were about "inclusiveness" and "the nations moral compass".
However, now that the Biden admin is proposing to move 60,000 illegal immigrants from NYC to New Jersey, he says "I don't see any scenario where we're going to be able to take in a program in Atlantic City or frankly elsewhere in the state... you need scale, enormous amount of federal support, resources that go beyond anything we can afford..." 😂
Meanwhile, democratic politicians in NY are blaming each other for the immigrant surge, and NY governor Kathy Hochul is blaming the Biden admin,"This crisis originated with the federal government" 😂
Providing shelter and services to NYC illegal immigrants and asylum seekers is estimated to cost the city $1.4B in 2023 and $2.8B in 2024. US customs and border protection have encountered 2 million illegal immigrants and asylum seekers at the southwest border as of July this year.
Meanwhile, the nations crying liberals are still pointing fingers at the Texas and Florida governors for their shipping of migrants to sanctuary states, while not once offering a room in their own house or any other resources for the immigrants. "I demand compassion, as long as I don't have to actually do anything" 🍆🤦    😂🤣
