And once again the lawmakers from the Looney Liberal state of Kalifornia have taken it upon themselves to dictate policy to what is the real America!
When Liberal lawmakers in California can’t accept a fact that doesn’t agree with their skewed world views they do what all Liberals who can’t win at the ballot box do. They resort to using the liberal courts, which have been stacked with liberal judges who are known for taking it upon themselves to legislate from the bench in order to shove their Liberal agendas down our collective throats.
Last week California expanded it’s state-sponsored travel ban to include eight American states over LGBTQ123XZZ rights to use the ladies room. But now they have gone a step further by declaring an all out war on individuals and contractors who work on President Trump’s proposed border wall. But the best part about this two-pronged attack to go after those who California lawmakers disagree with is that it only hurts the state of California and its citizens who can hardly keep their heads above water as it is.
California bill would blacklist contractors involved in U.S.-Mexico border wall project
SACRAMENTO — Contractors would have to choose between building a border wall between the U.S. and Mexico and doing business with California under a legislative proposal that advanced in the Senate Tuesday.
As California continues to fight the Trump administration’s agenda, Senate Bill 30 by Sen. Ricardo Lara, D-Bell Gardens, would blacklist companies who help to build the controversial border wall that President Donald Trump has promised to build — a project estimated to cost more than $20 billion, funding the president has yet to secure.
“It is not enough to simply oppose this wall in theory,” said Lara, calling this a “defining moment” for California.

SB 30 is one of two bills taking aim at contractors who choose to work on the border wall. Assembly Bill 946 by Assemblyman Phil Ting, D-San Francisco, would force the state to drop its pension investments in any companies involved in the project.
Hundreds of companies have expressed interest in border wall-related construction projects, including a number in the Bay Area, but the government has not released the number of bids it received before the deadline earlier this month.
Lobbyists for contractors spoke out against the bill Tuesday at a hearing of the Senate Committee on Governmental Organization, saying it would create a slippery slope.

“This is precedent setting,” said Todd Bloomstine, of the Southern California Contractors Association. “What next unpopular project would we blacklist for contractors?”
The bill will be heard next by the Senate Appropriations Committee.
Sen. Bill Dodd, D-Napa, said that as a former contractor, he sympathized with those who felt they were caught in the political crossfire. But, he said, “I just believe at this point in our history we have to take a stand for something.”
The state of California is already struggling financially because they have mastered the fine art of driving away business, have outrageous unsecured pension liabilities, take in an unlimited number of illegals, and have the largest population in the nation who rely on taxpayer welfare to live.
The official federal poverty level in the US for a household of 4 was $23,850 in 2014. A family of four in California would need an average of more than $63,000 a year. That’s nearly triple the federal poverty level only to be able to cover its basic needs of food and housing. If you ask me the 63k number is a bit low still, the real number should be around the 80k mark.
Yes, folks, California isn’t just Hollyweird, Disneyland, Apple, and Google. In fact, California boasts both the richest people in the nation and the poorest people in the nation, all in one state. But luckily for the rich, they don’t even have to look at the poor because they don’t live anywhere near where the rich people live. So it works out fine and the rich California Liberals don’t need to face what their extreme Liberal policies have done to this once golden state and its people.
