State of dis­ar­ray

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

Cal­i­for­nia, I have a blue­print for you to get out of tour self-in­flicted mess.

First, stop pay­ing for ed­u­ca­tion, hous­ing and med­i­cal care for il­le­gal aliens. If they don’t leave af­ter that then send them home. Your one-party rule un­der the iron fist of Wil­lie Brown — the Cas­tro of the West — is an ex­am­ple of what’s to come for the rest of the coun­try. I al­ways hoped that sooner or later id­i­otic green poli­cies would col­lide with the costs to en­force them. Cut­ting off the wa­ter sup­ply to farm­ers in the most fer­tile val­ley in the world be­cause of a fish is just asi­nine.

The lovely weather and beauty of your state can no longer off­set the pun­ish­ing taxes and reg­u­la­tion that sends busi­ness scream­ing and run­ning to other states. Here’s a mes­sage to your gov­er­nor, who’s only ri­val in stu­pid­ity is Jessie Ven­tura: Stop Spending. As a tax­payer buried un­der 12 inches of snow in Ne­braska I am still bet­ter off than you, but don’t come to me and the rest of the coun­try for a bailout be­cause it ain’t hap­pen­ing.

Cal­i­for­nia, you had the tenth-largest eco­nomic en­gine in the world and you put su­gar in the gas tank. To the peo­ple of Cal­i­for­nia, you are Amer­i­cans, there is noth­ing you can’t do. Take back con­trol of your state; you can start with your vast oil re­serves — there’s bil­lions of dol­lars of rev­enue to be tapped there. Don’t be like the old prospec­tor in Death Val­ley who died of thirst with a can­teen of wa­ter in his hand. Allen J. Ficke Omaha, Ne­braska
