A ‘Plague’ Of Californians

Some in Idaho want to stop ‘plague’ of Californians moving in

The Oregonian writes,  “At a candidate forum in late October, he had a terse answer for the question: “If you were king or queen for the day, what one thing would you do to improve Boise?”

“A $26-billion wall,” he said, laughing, drawing out each word for maximum emphasis. As in build one. Around Idaho.

California bashing is a cyclical sport with a long history in the heart of Idaho’s Treasure Valley. Growth spurts have more than doubled Boise’s population since the 1980 census. Four months before federal counters hit the streets here that year, a Washington Post headline crowed, “To Most Idahoans, A Plague of Locusts Is Californians.”

Blackouts: California’s Electric Car Dream Is Turning Into A Nightmare

The result? A blackout akin to the Venezuela 2019 blackouts that kept millions in the dark.

The blackouts—which one might expect from a third-world or mismanaged nation such as Venezuela or even Pakistan, which leads the world in the number of annual blackouts—are life and death for some California residents, and the problem isn’t expected to be resolved anytime soon.

California Overtakes North Korea For Prestigious “Third World Shithole” Designation

California Can Expect Blackouts For A Decade, Says PG&E CEO

The AP reports,

The CEO of Pacific Gas & Electric Corp. told California energy regulators that the state will likely see blackouts for another 10 years like the one imposed last week that left as many as 800,000 customers without power.

The revelation by corporation CEO Bill Johnson came Friday at a California Public Utilities Commission meeting at which he said his company is trying to reduce the chances of wildfires by trimming more trees and using technology to target smaller areas of the grid when fire dangers require power outages.

But Johnson said it could take 10 years before such outages are “really ratcheted down significantly.”

When asked to comment about California’s gaining the prestigious “Third World Shithole” designation, Governor Newsom responded, “It was a tough fight, but I just received Kim Jung-un’s very gracious concession letter….”
