California feudin’

October 14, 2013

Remind me what political ideology has been in charge of state policies in California for the past couple of decades?

The feudal arrangement did require the lords of the manor to provide for and protect their serfs, which seems to be the vision of the modern big-government supporter. Perhaps I’m too cynical, but I doubt the modern feudal lords are likely to fulfill their side of the arrangement.

In case you weren’t sure . . .

the ultimate priority of government at all levels is its own power and authority (h/t Instapundit).

Are U.S. citizens generous or mean to outsiders?

July 10, 2009

There’s an article in the LA Times on a new effort to cut back state programs available to illegal immigrants and even their U.S. born children. It’s very likely that one prominent reaction to this on the part of some activists will be to point out how in a period of economic trouble U.S. citizens become very hostile to outsiders.

One wonders, however, to what extent, if any, those same activists give credit to U.S. citizens for their amazing generosity to outsiders during periods of economic prosperity.
