    For me far left is those who promise free everything with no concept of how to pay for it. Socialist ideas.

    Do I have to name names,too?
    Names like "social security" and "medicare?"

    You mean like equal-pay-for-equal-work rules? Title IX? What do you mean?

California also allows unrestricted illegal immigration, and prohibits employers and local officials from complying with federal immigration hiring laws.

    I could go on and on, but those are just a few.
    Just filling in the blanks... Last year, California passed a law making it legal to breaking into a car in order to save a trapped animal.

    All of the following steps must be followed for the break-in to be in accordance with California law:

    1. Determine the car is locked and there is no other reasonable method by which to enter;
    2. Act in reasonable and good faith, believing there is imminent danger if the animal is not immediately removed;
    3. Contact law enforcement before entering the car;
    4. Use no more force than necessary to enter the car; and
    5. Remain nearby with animal in a safe location until law enforcement arrives
    6. Immediately turn the animal over to a representative from law enforcement, animal control, or another emergency responder who responds to the scene

    Source - California Bill AB-797

    Also, the law was passed in 2016. The surge in car break-ins is real - but measured between 2010 and 2015. Therefore, it could not possibly have anything to do with the law.

    Kallie - Were you trying to be deceptive, insinuating that California made all car break-ins legal?

    Thank you!! While there are times that I don't understand things in California, I just couldn't imagine that they would decriminalize breaking into another's car. Now to save an animal, you damn straight it is justified.

    Just goes to show that telling the truth is not always the same as telling the whole truth.

    Mr. Djinn,

    Car breakings have become quazi-legal. Since it is now just a misdemeanor, the police have stopped bothering to enforce them.

    And the law went into effect in 2015, not 2016.

    But thank you for posting a link that supports my contentions, i.e., that car break ins increased markedly after the law went into effect.

    Here's more links to show that it is only getting worse:

    Not directly, but is plenty of tolerance or passive encouragement in the dissemination of nuanced rhetoric along exactly those lines. People seeking power will be plenty permissive and passively encouraging of extremist rhetoric to the extent it agitates people against their political opponents or enhances their support.

    And of course there are politicians, especially at lower levels of government, who are audacious enough to espouse and advocate for most of those things straight away.

    Well, sure, I suppose that would be part of it, though those are not examples of anything I would call extreme. I was thinking of groups like the Kurds fighting ISIS. You know, they check your privilege with a machine gun, type shit.

    Sometimes telling the truth is the the same as totally fucking lying! LOL.

    What is wrong with encouraging people to move where the jobs are?
