Seniors Will Lose Out on More Health Care Choices
WASHINGTON –California seniors are already feeling the devastating impact of ObamaCare’s cuts to Medicare, which are reducing access and limiting their healthcare choices. Now seniors in California and across the country may be set to lose even more.
According to the FEC website, four area Republicans have filed political committees as possible candidates in the 53rd Congressional District, to determine which one will have the right to lose to Congresswoman Susan Davis in November (see the chart below).
Please tell me if in that statement I’m being too dismissive of anyone’s chances to unseat Davis.
The field includes educator Joel Marchese, Grossmont Union High School District Trustee James Stieringer, physician Wayne True, and retired Navy SEAL Larry Wilske.
SACRAMENTO, CA – Assemblyman Jones (R-Santee) points to the latest headlines relating to California’s failed prison “realignment”, implemented by Governor Brown and the Democrat majority in 2011. This law shifted lower level offenders from state prisons to county jails, but failed to provide the county probation offices with the means to manage the influx of new inmates. In Los Angeles County alone, nearly 2,000 criminals slipped through the cracks after not complying with their probation obligations. Jones said, “Instead of minimizing crimes and letting prisoners go free, why not work to maintain the law abiding citizen’s safety?”
We’re continuing to build a state-wide network of donors because the Democrats aren’t going to give up this fight easily.

As I wrote last Thursday, San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore lost in a big decision regarding your right to bear arms. So what now? Sheriff Gore has 14 days to make a decision on what to do..These are the options to Gore and their financial impact on San Diego County:
How can we force Members of Congress to vote to reform their own benefits and closed way of doing business?
Good old fashioned public pressure!

SACRAMENTO, CA— Today Assemblyman Jones released a statement regarding the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals decision in which they struck down a requirement by San Diego County that residents show “good cause” to carry a concealed firearm. Before concluding its decision, the Ninth Circuit observed:
“We are well aware that, in the judgment of many governments, the safest sort of firearm-carrying regime is one which restricts the privilege to law enforcement with only narrow exceptions. Nonetheless, “the enshrinement of constitutional rights necessarily takes certain policy choices off the table. . . . Undoubtedly some think that the Second Amendment is outmoded in a society where our standing army is the pride of our Nation, where well-trained police forces provide personal security, and where gun violence is a serious problem. That is perhaps debatable, but what is not debatable is that it is not the role of this Court [or ours] to pronounce the Second Amendment extinct.”(McDonald v. Chicago)
By now most have heard about the remarkable court ruling by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, declaring that the right of “self defense” is a sufficient reason to issue concealed weapon permits in San Diego County (assuming a person is otherwise eligible). Yes, the ruling could still be overturned (I’m not optimistic), but it DOES have the saving grace that it supports (and is supported by) the U.S. Constitution.
Perhaps that 2nd Amendment thingy might be considered in any further court deliberations. Hope springs eternal!
In stunning ruling, 9th Circuit affirms right to carry a firearm for self defense in San Diego County
In a stunning/seemingly bizarre ruling, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has decided to (for once) enforce the Constitution. The court actually ruled that one has the right to receive a gun (carry) permit for self defense in San Diego County (and potentially in all of California). AMAZING!!!
This Tuesday, the City of San Diego held a mayoral special election to fill the vacancy left by disgraced former mayor Bob Filner, who resigned last August. Using GIS software and data from the San Diego County Registrar of Voters, the National University System Institute for Policy Research conducted an analysis of the precinct results, and Tweeted its findings this morning. Below is a Storify transcript of those findings.
“What you saw [Tuesday] night was our reform agenda won,” DeMaio told The Hill Wednesday morning.
“It absolutely validates my ‘new generation Republican’ philosophy: We win when we reform government to make it work. That’s the essence of the choice voters were given last night and they supported reform, as they’ve done time and again in the past.”

If you went to bed at 8 p.m. last night and just woke up, Kevin Faulconer won the special election for San Diego Mayor by 10 points and Proposition B in Solana Beach passed by a slim margin. As San Diego puts the Filner era behind us, let’s consider who won big last night and who lost:
Drive the 15 from San Diego to Las Vegas – you pass a bunch of desert towns but a lot more sand. Once you cross the Nevada border the scenery doesn’t change but you entered a state where California businesses are going to. They are going to Arizona and Texas too. We have our deserts but why are these hot states getting our business?
We can reverse this by decentralizing.
OK, a quick one this time, for tomorrow’s City of San Diego mayoral election.
A reminder of the “rules”:
- Read the questions closely. No tricks, just read the questions.
- Send your guesses to firstname.lastname@example.org ONLY. The Rostra admins are assisting on this, so don’t send to my email. As well, do NOT post your answers here.
- Deadline to submit guesses: Tomorrow — Tuesday, February 11, 2014 — 7:30 p.m. No exceptions. That’s Pacific Time.
In only what could be described as a complete failure of leadership for the statists on the Solana Beach City Council, our City is having a Special Election this Tuesday. We will be voting on a ballot proposition to permit Solana Beach citizens to use a City-owned community center.
From the Alvarez campaign…
“As a native San Diegan, David Alvarez has been a fierce advocate for his city, and on the Council, has led efforts to build a strong middle class, put neighborhoods first and expand opportunities for kids in and out of school. Today, with the city’s economy and neighborhoods poised to make progress there is no question that David is the right choice to be San Diego’s next mayor and I am excited to support him.” –President Barack Obama
The minimum wage laws in this country are daggers to the heart of opportunity for our poorest and least skilled citizens. Those in favor argue that it helps the poor because they get paid more, and that there is no adverse impact on the economy, overall. I disagree, but want to focus on the very people that the left proposes to help, the unskilled. Take South Africa for instance. The ministry of labor sets minimum wages in various employment areas. But the labor unions in South Africa are closely allied with ruling ANC and they impose wage rates even on non-union sectors of the economy. As a consequence, there is massive unemployment in South Africa amongst the largely unskilled work force, because they are not skilled enough to be affordable to businesses.
The next 96 hours will determine if we take back the office of San Diego Mayor so here is what you need to know…
There is NO central committee meeting/event on Monday as it’s the day before Election Day and we are putting all our energy into Get-Out-The-Vote efforts.
