Here’s another story to add to your, “What the heck is going on in CA?” folder.
We’ve talked about California. A lot. Not a day goes by when we learn something crazy about the Golden State. We know that there are many patriots in California. You’re just as fed up with your liberal leadership as we are. More so probably. Yet, despite the hard-working people who keep that state afloat, California Democrats are dead set on ruining it.
Gov. Jerry Brown has all but torched the state’s future. He’s neglecting needed infrastructure repairs, including building much-needed reservoirs. Instead, he wants to spend billions on a frivolous high-speed rail. Just to keep the unions happy.
That’s not to mention his continued support of illegal immigrants. This, as hundreds of thousands of Americans live on the street.
Now a California mayor has another insane plan. This one really takes the cake.
Stockton, California, Mayor Michael Tubbs (D) is proposing $1,000 for people considered “most likely to shoot somebody.”
Fox & Friends reports that Tubbs’ plan would offer potential shooters “18 months of counseling” and the money if they avoid getting into trouble.
The Los Angeles Times reports that financial incentives for potential shooters is part of a “program … called Advance Peace.” It is being advertised as a way to reach shooters before they act on their proclivities, using the money and the counseling to lure them away from violence.
Tubbs said, “Let me be clear, Advance Peace is not a get out of jail free card. Participating in this program doesn’t erase the past, but it does help these young men learn how to make better choices for their own and our community’s collective future.”
The Advance Peace program is being pushed along with a $500-a-month guaranteed basic income for “a select group of residents.”
M-hm. And does this “select group of residents,” come from Mexico? Perhaps illegally?
I mean, come on. Do any of the left’s plans not involve stealing money from taxpayers? Everything they want to do requires shelling out insane amounts of tax dollars. Can’t they do something that isn’t a terrible burden on hard-working Americans?
The entire platform of the left is built around punishing Americans and rewarding the undeserving. This one is really stupid. Tubbs (great name, btw) wants to bribe criminals, hoping they’ll just turn themselves in for 1000 bucks. Really good plan Tubbs. Perhaps your best.
Does he seriously think this is going to work? You know the best way to stop criminals is? Cops! Why don’t you take all that money you want to give to criminals and use it to hire more police? They are the ones risking their lives to keep Stockton safe. And—despite the ongoing hit job they receive from the media—most cops do a really good job.
The only time a city suffers is when the cops aren’t properly equipped or prepared. Or brain dead liberals waste money on idiotic ideas.
Perhaps Stockton needs a new mayor. And fast.
