    The only take away from this is the power of free shit. CA democrats cannot survive without sucking off some sort of taxpayer tit.
    Consider the Oyster.

    C-4 is just angry playdoh.

    CA gets back about $0.70 for every $1 it contributes in taxes.

    How does your shitty state do?

    Hopefully, the absurdity of his pre-election claim of fraud will have a fallout effect both on the false rigging claims of his own election and on the use of the claim in future elections. Dopes like Grumpy will never be convinced but the idea isn't to persuade the most committed Trumpers. It's to make the rigging claim untenable to ordinary voters.
    It does not help Trump's credibility that he was hollering about Krakens even before Newsome won by 30%.

    Trump claimed a 'landslide' in his nail-biter win of '16. Now here is what a real landslide looks like.

    It's pretty hard to get primaried when there are no stateside elected Republicans. You have to win office before you can primaried.

    OK, you're only talking about CA.

    I wonder how fast the population of CA would dwindle if welfare, EBT, and SNAP were cut off?

    For the same reason Rosa Parks didn't sit in the back of the bus.

    No doubt he did. Hundreds of thousands have ridden in the back of the bus without any drama. In fact, I prefer it. Less people, more room.

    Alexander the Great was probably gay. At a minimum he was bi.

    It will be interesting to see how their semi-socialist state will survive a mass exodus of middle-class taxpayers.

    Global warming turning the state into Death Valley won't help either.

    So then that disappearing AK-47 finds its way to a criminal or criminal organization, who use it and end up killing people.

    OR, it gets sold via straw purchase by whoever stole it to a "very fine person" who ends up using it to commit a mass shooting.

    So that's why I give a shit...I don't want to eventually go back to the movies and see the latest Marvel film, only to get gunned down in my seat by a "very fine person"/"Responsible gun owner" who was having a bad day, but was able to get a gun because you weren't responsible.
    Soooo....you want to make the Minority Report Thought Police a real thing?

    If you want to be afraid of what someone might do, worry about domestic terrorists burning down your neighborhood.

    This is a sign of things to come!

    Every time DONALD T-Rump INJECTS HIS BIG FAT CROOKED ASS INTO A POLITICAL RACE- THE TRUMPTARDS ARE GOING TO LOSE because people are trying to send him a message- GTFO!

    Bring on the Mid-Terrms- we have just experienced a preview!

    I remember when the Trumptards said, "We are tired of winning"! Many here on JPP told us that every day here for months on end during the Trumpenstein era!

    Well, Democrats never get tired of winning and whooping you Trumptards asses!!
