If you don’t live here, have you heard about the recall of our Governor Newsom? I got my ballot in the mail. Personally, I think he’s done a great job to keep us safe during the pandemic. That’s one reason why I’m voting NO on the recall to keep Newsom in office.
It was conjured up by a partisan, Republican coalition of national Republicans, anti-vaxxers, Q-Anon conspiracy theorists, and anti-immigrant Trump supporters.
Remember Bruce Jenner? Well…now as Caitlyn Jenner, he’s thrown his/her hat in the ring to become governor of Cali. Years ago when he was Bruce, I met him and was appalled at the horrible way he treated people. Running very fast is NOT a qualification to govern. That’s about all there is to know.
Here’s what stupid Larry Elder is promoting: minimum wage should be $0. No Medicare or Medicaid.
The other idiot who gets some press is the guy who brings a bear with him. Yes, you read that correctly. A BEAR. I guess because the state animal of California is a BEAR, but we animal activists have launched an investigation–anyone who thinks that bear isn’t abused has their head in the sand.
Lastly, there’s Angelyne, Here’s her pic. She’s known for her billboards and other assets, but we’ve learned that she’s close to 70 years old. ‘Nuff said but I’d love to meet her plastic surgeon!
According to the Los Angeles Times, the candidates are comprised of “peddlers of Q-Anon doomsday conspiracies; ‘patriots’ readying for battle and one organization allied with the far-right extremist group, the Proud Boys.”
POLITICO reported how one of the co-founders and chief organizers of the recall suggested it would be a good idea to “microchip” immigrants, and anti-immigrant rhetoric has been central to recall organizers’ appeals to supporters.
Instead of fighting COVID-19, Republicans are pulling a page from the Trump playbook and attacking Californians. From https://stoptherepublicanrecall.com/about/
This stupid and unnecessary pollitically motivated Republican recall will cost California $100 million – money that could be used to help vaccinate our communities.
Here’s what my hero Stacey Abrams said about the recall: “Governor Newsom has courageously led California through a global pandemic — putting health, science and equity at the center of the state’s response. Republicans fought him every step of the way. Now, they are trying to overturn his election. Californians must stop the Republican recall.”
My other hero, Rep. Katie Porter: “From the start of the pandemic, Gavin Newsom has taken swift action to keep families safe and help them recover financially. That’s what makes this Republican recall so dangerous. It’s not just a waste of time and money that could be used to fight COVID-19 — a successful recall risks slowing down our state’s efforts to end the pandemic as quickly as possible.”
There are literally dozens of candidates. There’s nothing to see here, folks.
Let’s keep it simple.
Vote NO on the recall and let the idiots sort themselves out with their negative and toxic energy.
Not dissing legitimate trans people here AT ALL, but if Bruce is a woman, I’m a man. No woman in her right mind would CHOOSE to be 70 years old etc. and miss out on a lot of the good stuff (and hard stuff) The other thing? To have reaped ALL THE BENEFITS of his masculinity ALL THOSE YEARS (and in our generation, those benefits were manifold pun enjoyed but not intended) and NOW??? We shouldn’t have allowed him in the club. He didn’t earn it. Gavin Newsom did a great job in 2020. He was courageous and wise. I hope so much the recall fails.

I hear ya and agree. I find his “transition” so strange and I’m not sure why I feel that way but you nailed it. I really really hope Newsom keeps his job. He shouldn’t be another victim of those cultists.
