Okay - the first issue on my list is housing. The legislature is doing everything to increase the number of homes in a location that is suffering a horrible drought. One advocacy group does not address the obvious pitfalls of too many people in one place that has no water. they don't have an answer so ignore it. I view that as a criminal use of taxpayer dollars.

Putin and China have Europe and the U.S. right where they want us: in an energy trap of our own making. Anthropogenic climate change is and has always been a non-scientific political movement led by people whose lives are not impacted by inflation or rising energy costs.

We are literally on the precipice of destroying our own economy as well as our monetary system, in no small part because climate alarmists--headquartered in Palo Alto it would seem--don't have the clarity of vision to recognize that efficient, dependable energy = life.

Wake up to reality!
