Gov. New­som is look­ing to be a one-term gov­er­nor

Times Standard (Eureka) - - OPINION -

It’s to­tally amaz­ing how the govern­ment be­lieves that tak­ing from the ones, who are in need, the most and they are liv­ing in the fifth wealth­i­est econ­omy of the world, do they truly be­lieve that the measly amount that they take from the el­derly, the sick, the poor, the blacks, the Lati­nos, the chil­dren’s lunch boxes, that is go­ing to boost the econ­omy of Cal­i­for­nia. What I see is go­ing to hap­pen, is that Gov. New­som is look­ing to be a oneterm gov­er­nor. I would like to ask Gov. New­som, “What’s your next trick, Mr. Gov­er­nor Soy­lent Green?” It’s faster, and if you do prop­erly, hardly any­one will no­tice the de­cline of the el­derly. This brings to mind Ge­orge Bernard Shaw, who wrote that “Amer­ica is the only coun­try that went from bar­barism to deca­dence with­out civ­i­liza­tion in be­tween.” I find that very com­pelling and ex­tremely in­ter­est­ing. All other civ­i­liza­tions on this planet value their el­derly; they care for them within the fam­ily, never push­ing them out of their own homes to have strangers care for their loved ones; in other coun­tries, they nour­ished their el­ders and care for them, as there is a need for us. Just imag­ine, it won’t be too long be­fore we will be very val­ued if not for any­thing else, but for the fact that we are the only ones left that can write cur­sive.
