Boomer Opinions Says Yes, California Is Being Judged
Two things seem to be fairly constant these days…and they bear the same name; disasters In California, and…disasters in California. (Author’s note: Baby Boomers all know it’s impossible not to say Cal-i-for-n-ia without using a mock Schwarzenegger accent).
First there are the natural disasters. Drought, rain, floods, tremors, and of course fire. While these are natural in the basic sense of the word, I submit that they may also be supernatural. Yes, supernatural…as in divine judgment. As in this state can’t help themselves from making stupid decisions and punishment must be rendered.
Next are the man-made disasters which are primarily of a political nature, and serve as the calling card for the aforementioned supernatural disasters. That card, by the way says; Bring it on God…we aren’t listening anyway.
But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”Revelation 21:8 ESV
You Can’t Make This Stuff Up
Here are just a few of the wacky/crazy/stupid bills California as actually signed into law:
- Requiring large department stores to maintain a gender-neutral section of toys and child care items.
- Requiring public colleges, universities and secondary schools to provide free menstrual products on campus (thus adding a tax burden and keeping parents in the dark).
- Banning the sale of new gas-powered leaf blowers, lawn mowers and other small off-road engines by as soon as 2024. (I confess, this one might just be the boomer in me pushing back).
- Lower penalties for adults who have consensual sex with a minor if the offender is within 10 years of age with the victim. So a 24yr old with a 14yr old fine?
Those are just the ones I could find quickly. Let’s not forget that there is an entirely separate set of automotive emission requirements that manufacturers must adhere to for just 1 out of our 50 states, you guessed it…California.
There is also the ridiculous Proposition 65 labels that must be slapped on products sold to Californians that states that said product they are purchasing may cause Cancer or Reproductive Harm.
Look, I’m all for avoiding harmful materials, but this P65 labels now literally on everything. Apparently the chemicals are only harmful to Californians, as no other state has jumped on this band wagon that I know of.
Does Judgment Still Exist?
All of that to say that the left-leaning, gender bender liberal policies and loosening up of punishment for crimes committed is not going unnoticed. While much of the rest of the country looks at Commie-fornia with a queer eye, I believe the Almighty might be practicing His end-times curve ball on hapless Californians that don’t seem to have a clue.
