At Least the North Koreans Didn’t Have The Choices Californians Had

“First we must cross the river,” Benito was saying.  “Do you believe me now when I tell you that you must not attempt to swim it, or even get wet from it, or must you try that too?”

“What happens if I just dive in?”

“Then you will be as you were in the bottle.  Aware and unable to move.  but it will be very cold, and very uncomfortable, and you will be there for all eternity knowing that you put yourself there.”

Larry Niven & Jerry Pournelle Inferno 1976

What was your first thought when you saw this:

and this:

For many their first thought would be California’s new rules mandating electric cars by 2035 and how all said car owners are not able to charge under these rules.

My thought was this picture of North Korea:

And it struck me that the people of North Korea have no choice on who leads them and that to change the situation they are in, they have to risk their lives.

People in California don’t have that out. They have repeatedly voted for and allowed their state to become more and more a third world country. Moreover for decades people have warned them over and over that their policies would have this effect.

They ignored them.

What has happened in North Korea is a tragedy because it was done to the people there. What is happening in California is comedy because they have done it to themselves.

BTW if you want to know how it’s going to end, it will end like this:

Sir Humphrey ApplebyBut if you knew they were crooks

Sir Desmond GlasebrookWe didn’t

Sir Humphrey Appleby: But you could have made enquiries..

Sir Desmond Glasebrook: You don’t make enquiries of that sort in the city. They seemed like decent chaps and decent chaps don’t check up on decent chaps to see if they are behaving like decent chaps.

Sir Humphrey Appleby: And ignorance is worth paying 14 million pounds for?

Sir Desmond Glasebrook: Ignorance is safety it’s not a crime to be deceived and it’s not our own money is it? [Turning to the waiter handing the him the check] Oh thank you.

Sir Humphrey Appleby: So What’s going to happen?

Sir Desmond GlasebrookWell there’s only one answer. The Bank of England must bail out Philips Berrison. No publicity keep it in the family, and that way we get our money back.

Sir Humphrey Appleby: At the taxpayer’s expense.

Sir Desmond Glasebrook: Of course.

Yes Prime Minster A conflict of interest 1987

In the end California will ask the federal government to bail them out. It won’t be this year, it won’t be next year but within the next decade the state will be begging for a federal bailout to save them from the hole they dug for themselves.

Remember you heard it here first.

I’ll give the last word to Christine Pushaw

Closing thought to all those who have fled California over the last decade: If you continue to vote for the left in the state where you fled to, all of these problems will follow you to where you are now.

    I recently saw a video that indicated that the northern half of Korea was actually the highest GDP and most industrialized Asian nation in the early 1950’s before the Kim family took over and invaded the south. Then the Korean war took them back to the stone age and due to their crappy communist government it’s never been able to recover.

    That surprised me — I’d never heard of North Korea being any kind of wealthy or industrial powerhouse before, however briefly.

    Too bad California’s declining without needing to be bombed but is doing it to itself.

    Here’s the video, in case you’re interested —

    I thought it was well worth the 27 minutes.

    more and more a third world country.

    Third-world population, third-world country. California used to be at least a toss-up state, if not Republican-leaning. Mass immigration, and mass immigration alone, ended that. It’s doing the same in Georgia, Virginia, and other places. The whole country in fact. This is the inevitable conclusion to the Republican supported open borders we’ve had for the last 40 years. Demographics is destiny and biology will out, regardless of the conscious lies Kempian, pseudo-libertarian Republicans and conservative pundits have told you during that period. They have sold you into serfdom. Enjoy.
