Why Most Californians Aren't Happy with the State | Victor Davis Hanson

Guest today is Victor Davis Hanson, historian and senior fellow at the Hoover Institution. California has almost half of the nation’s homeless population, some of the highest taxes in the country, and is ranked among the lowest in education. What does the future look like for California? Are we able to turn our state back into the prosperous land it once was?

In a normal time, in a normal country, voters would reject record gas prices, record inflation, record crime rates, war and corruption. But not today.

Once again, Democrats proved they can survive anything as long as they have their fraud.

Americans reject every single dish the Democrats served. Yet, Democrats shocked Americans on Tuesday to win the US Senate, steal battleground states, and possibly keep the US Congress in Nancy Pelosi’s control, one of the most corrupt and dishonest politicians in US history.

California Dreamin' by The Mamas & the Papas, released in 1965. It was written in 1963 by John Phillips and Michelle Phillips while they were living in New York, inspired by Michelle's nostalgia for California. At the time the Phillips were members of the folk group New Journeymen. It is considered to be one of the most representative songs of the sixties.

All the leaves are brown
And the sky is grey
I've been for a walk
On a winters day

 I'd be safe and warm
If I was in L.A.

California dreamin'
On such a winters day

 Stopped into a church
I passed along the way
Well, I got down on my knees
And I pretend to pray

You know the preacher lights the coal
he knows I am gonna stay.

California dreamin'
On such a winters day
All the leaves are brown
And the sky is grey
I've been for a walk
On a winters day

If I didn't tell her
I could leave today

California dreamin'
On such a winters day
 California dreaming
On such a winters day
California dreaming
On such a winters day

California used to be known:

From rags to riches...

Now, it's from riches to rags!!

It’s estimated there’s around 5,000 homeless individuals throughout the city of Oakland, but no one really knows the exact number. And the number of people on the streets in Oakland has nearly doubled in the last two years alone.
