Three Californias may be coming soon

Tim Draper is a rich man, but he understands he doesn´t know it all. His first attempt to divide California into six states made very little sense. So he went out and got some people who are experts on the subject. The result, Cal 3, is a political masterpiece. This could work. When California was admitted to the union in 1850 it had only 92,000 people, most of them scrambling for gold in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. That´s why California´s county lines are so screwy. Los Angeles County now has 10,000,000 people. Alpine County has 1,000. Cal 3 divides the

Three states would allow for 4 more Senators. Most of those Democrats along with the 2 they already have.

What a rotten deal for every tax paying American. I want Mexifornia to secede. Get these lib losers out of America permantely. This 3 crap is just a way to soak the already overworked taxpayers. You give these Rats 2-3 senators and that my friends is the end of America as any person born before 1972 knows it. What a country the open borders,radical feminists, and sex perverts will have. There will be nothing left to leave decent children and grandchildren.

If you liberals want to break up your sinking state, fine, but don´t think we´re just going to set four more seats in the Senate and give you more electoral votes.

If what you call "California" wants to remain the State of California, then fine...you keep your two Senators and you lose all of the House seats that went with the rest of the state.

As for North and South California, they are not states, and as such would have no representation in the House or the Senate until they are admitted into the Union after proving that they are worthy of admission and gain the approval of the rest of the Country.

If you think you´re just going to pull a fast one, think again. People aren´t blind.

It seems he forgot about all the other current States that would have to vote to admit the three new Californias to the Union. Now why would they, especially the Republican leaning States, vote to essentially give California six liberal Democrat Senators instead of the two they have today? Chances are, if the new Californias’ had six liberal Democrat Senators, them and all the other Democrat Senators would always be in a position to control the US Senate and to thus create a very liberal Supreme Court that the Republican leaning States don’t want. If that was allowed to happen, Texas would probably leave the Union.

An alarming amount of ignorance and gullibility on this thread today.
Obama will stand up and openly admit to being a fraud and ask our forgiveness while Hillary is giving back all the money she stole long before something like this happens.
This loon has been blathering about this for quite a while, the number keeps changing, recently he wanted CA to become 6 states. the Flat Earth Society draws bigger crowds than he does.
Keep in mind that this guy is heavily invested in Bitcoin, CA is so wealthy that some get rich by accident, and he is one of them.

Does being rich mean a reduced brain size. This guy, Tim Draper, is a king size doofus if he thinks the rest of the United States would go along with this stupid idea.
Here´s my idea, reduce the size of the state by one third and give the entire bottom of California to Mexico. Mexico would thank you and change the bear on the flag over to an eagle with a snake.
The upper two thirds would reduce it´s sitting represemtatives by that lost from the south after it is written off. Give all of the state´s debt to Mexico and start with a clean slate. This is too simple I know so leave the ´s...hole´ like it is.

SF and Sacto are NOT part of N. Cal. They are part of Central Cal. SF is a seven hr drive SOUTH of my California home. This will never happen but I just wanted to make it clear that SF is NOT N. Cal. Ok, I feel better now.

I am not happy with this split. The split should be a 30-mile wide strip along the Pacific coast from north of Orange County all the way to Vancouver. Keep San Diego in the US. Kick the left coast out.

Liberals are probably trying to gerrymandering the new state lines to maximize their voting block. Then, if the rest of the country votes against admission, they´ll look for their favorite 9th circuit judges to declare opposition, unconstitutional.

This proposed breakup guarantees two additional democrat senators plus electoral votes. San Francisco being included in Northern California makes it the controlling factor. LA in central California guarantees it´s liberal dominance. San Diego being in Southern California is a crap shoot.

I´ve lived in Los Angeles and Riverside County. I can tell you that if you drive from the Pacific one hour due east, you will have entered an entirely different state.

Every republican in every state has the same problem. State politics are dominated by their liberal cities.

It’s always interesting to see the anonymous “experts” on California (the ones we know don’t live here) rave on and on about what California is, what is has been, what it should be. #11 gets it right. Ignorance and gullibility.

And they almost never have the guts to admit the name of the paradise they live in.

I still remember the naive woman (Texan by her own admission) who said “I’ve never been to California, but I know I wouldn’t like it.”

It is a beautiful spring day here today. We are loving it.

Be careful what you wish for.

Who would be determining the borders of the states. Can a state be gerrymandered like a congressional district.

If Jerry Brown and California´s lefty supreme court had any say, what plan would they support? Answer: Three states with democratic majorities.

During a lecture at the Library of Conservatism in Germany, British philosopher Sir Roger Scruton described conservatism as a philosophy that recognizes and acknowledges that good things are easily destroyed but not easily created, such as law, peace, freedom, civility, the security of property and family life. He contends we depend on the cooperation of others for the aforementioned to exist because we have no means or ability to single handedly attain it. He states “the work of destruction is quick, easy and exhilarating.” “The work of creation is slow, laborious and dull.” For the African American, the journey from captivity

In a more innocent time, a 1993 New Yorker cartoon showed one pooch saying to another, “On the internet, nobody knows you’re a dog.” Twenty-five years later, the days when people could stick a toe into the online world without compromising their privacy is a distant memory. Websites, e-services and apps have morphed into an interconnected leviathan that collects more private data than any but the most savvy among us suspects. As the federal government loses interest in our privacy, Illinois legislators should step up to protect us from incessant data mining and reselling.

Romney rips Trump tariffs:
‘Trade wars are a tax on Americans’
The Hill, by Aris Foley    Original Article

Mitt Romney spoke out against "trade wars" on Friday after President Trump imposed tariffs on $34 billion of Chinese imports, prompting Beijing to respond with its own tariffs on U.S. goods. “Trade wars are a tax on Americans. They have severe consequences for many employers and inevitably cost Americans jobs,” the Utah GOP Senate hopeful said in a statement. Romney said trade wars are particularly punishing for agriculture, which is a sector in Utah the former GOP presidential contender said is “already under duress from wildfire, drought, and challenging public land policies.” “Our national objective should be to open new markets, negotiate free

For Kalena Bruce, a fifth-generation cattle farmer in Stockton, Missouri, finding affordable health coverage under Obamacare hasn’t been easy. She’s a young mom and business owner paying $700 a month in premiums alone, not to mention deductibles and copays. That’s why she’s become an advocate for allowing more small businesses like hers to bring down their health care costs by pooling together. It’s an idea that’s worked for Missouri businesses for more than 15 years and will now be available nationwide thanks to the Trump administration’s new rule expanding access to association health plans, or AHPs. Simply put, AHPs allow small businesses

At the heart of the effort to bring down President Trump were two affairs. Unlike the bizarre lies about Moscow hotel rooms and prostitutes in the Steele dossier that was used by the Clinton campaign and its allies to smear President Trump and generate an investigation against him, these affairs truly took place. And they didn’t just expose the malfeasance of four people, but of a corrupt political culture. The affairs between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page in the FBI, and between Senate Intelligence Committee security director James Wolfe and New York Times reporter Ali Watkins, did more than betray the spouses

Two former Ohio State University wrestlers are accusing Rep. Jim Jordan of ignoring sexual misconduct by a university physician more than two decades ago when he was an assistant wrestling coach at Ohio State. There’s no claim that Jordan engaged in such misconduct, the claim is that he knew about, but failed to take action to stop, sexual harassment by a team doctor. Jordan denies knowing about the doctor’s misconduct. The question, then, isn’t what Jordan did; it’s what he knew. That’s usually a difficult kind of inquiry. In Jordan’s case, the two accusers are highly suspect. According to Chuck Ross at

Judge Brett Kavanaugh is going into the Supreme Court confirmation process with a hail of rhetorical arrows zinging by him, including a phony letter-writing campaign aimed at unsuspecting American newspaper editors. At least 21 papers were duped last week, including big-market brands like the Dallas Morning News and The Washington Times. They ran identical letters over a four-day period, each signed by a different person. The effort is an example of public-relations ´astroturfing,´ a technique meant to simulate genuine grassroots support for an idea or cause.

Former CIA Director John Brennan continued Tuesday to criticize President Trump’s performance at the Helsinki summit, saying Mr. Trump could have potentially risked intelligence capabilities during his private meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin and the intel community might begin to withhold intelligence from Mr. Trump. In light of Mr. Trump’s comments about the intelligence community, Mr. Brennan said “there very well might be” a shift in the covert community to “withhold vital intelligence” in order to protect that information. “Dan Coats and Gina Haspel need to be on top of their game now and speak truth to power,” he

Chicago may soon become the largest municipality in the U.S. to test a universal basic income program. Chicago alderman Ameya Pawar recently proposed legislation that would provide 1,000 families with a $500 monthly stipend -- no questions asked. The bill already has the backing of the majority of city lawmakers, and Pawar hopes to soon work with Mayor Rahm Emanuel to implement the pilot program, The Intercept reported. “Nearly 70 percent of Americans don’t have $1,000 in the bank for an emergency,” Pawar told the outlet. “UBI could be an incredible benefit for people who are working and are having

When Presidents Trump and Vladimir Putin ended their joint press conference in Helsinki, the punditocracy predictably swarmed all over it like ants around a pile of crumbs. Was Trump winking at Putin? Did he really say he believes Putin more than he believes Robert Mueller about whether Russia interfered in the 2016 election? Former Gus Hall enthusiast John Brennan, off his meds again, tweeted that the presser was “treasonous.” Professional chatterer Anderson Cooper said it was “perhaps one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president at a summit.” Every phrase, every gesture of the event will be picked
