Recall CA Gov. Gavin Newsom? Why & What you can do ….? Wake up Santa Cruz County & every CA citizen

Why recall  now   CA Gov. Gavin Newsom?

Think about  our CA children:     Gov. Newsom closed all  schools.

Children need schools for social reasons, to learn from real human beings in one-to-one interactions, and to feel good about themselves.

Suicide rates among  middle school and older children are rising.  Kids are killing themselves because of Gov. Newsom.   He   closed  all  schools & caved to teachers’ unions’ demands.  CA  teacher unions seek  to de-fund the police, a  moratorium on all  charter schools or voucher programs and no more standardized testing.    Newsom’s actions  by supporting the demands of teachers’ unions harms every student in CA.

Think about safety:  Newsom loosed 180,000+ violent felons back into  local  CA coumunities.

And Newsom apologized to the felons for locking them up.  What’s happening to safety of our local communities?

Think  about the idiocy of Newsom’s “essential services”:  Pot shops are open.  Churches must stay closed.

 Think about jobs:    Most of the CA  economy remains  shut-down. Gavin Newsom did it a second time!    Newsom  again shut down the economy of CA which was 5th largest in the world before pandemic.  Lockdowns don’t work.  Look at Europe which has re-opened and some European countries did not close.

Think  1st Amendment encroachments:   your right to speak your mind, freely assemble, congregate at a church and on the beach.

So, what can you do  about California  Gov. Gavin  Newsom?   Recall him!   Download a petition, get neighbors to sign it and MAIL it in.

Eat crow! Gov. Newsom’s “data driven decisions” are based on incomplete data due to bug in electronic system

Eat crow, Gov. Newsom!

Covid-19 related policies are “guided by data” so says  CA  Democrat Gov. Newsom.

But the “data”  provided by the state of CA to local authorities  is incomplete due to a bug in the electronic system.  See story in  the San Francisco Chronicle.

Aptos Psychologist:   How fitting.  A “bug” eats away at supposed accuracy of CA Democrat Gov. Newsom’s Covid-19 policies.   Newsom’s “data” requires  churches  to remain closed and the economy hobbled.   A story in the Los Angeles Times suggests optimism and that things are actually getting better.

A Los Angeles Times analysis on Monday found that California experienced its first weekly reduction in new confirmed coronavirus cases for the first time in 12 weeks. For the seven-day period that ended Sunday, California reported 59,697 new cases, a drop of 9% from the previous week of 65,634 cases, which was a record.

If the trends continue, it would mark a turning point after weeks of record hospitalizations that began in mid-June, the result of California starting to rapidly reopen the economy in May.

California experienced its highest number of average daily COVID-19 hospitalizations about two weeks ago; for the week of July 20, there were an average of 6,969 people in hospitals statewide. That number fell last week to 6,632. The improvement was the first time in 10 weeks that California has seen such a reduction in average daily hospitalizations.

State’s coronavirus response in crisis mode, as computer glitch makes data unreliable.

Some churches ae pushing back.  In San Diego, a Catholic high school that serves 700 students on a yearly basis has sued Gov. Newsom for closing the schools.

Compare Obama & Trump on money in pocket, unemployment & inequality of income — let’s hoof back to Obama or re-create what Trump did?

Who did a better job on the economy — Obama or Trump — comparing money in the pocket, unemployment and inequality of income?

Obama fans  — read and weep!  Your hero Obama  stayed stuck in the mud.  This is from the Wall Street Journal Opinion page, Monday, August 3, 2020.

Money:   So did Obama or Trump put the most money in the pocket of  American families?     Comparing Obama with Trump as to which President did the best job raising  the annual medium income  (AMHI), Trump did twice as well as Obama.    That’s comparing Obama’s 8 years with the first two years of Trump’s administration.   (see WSJ,   The Economy That Obama Handed Trump Aug. 3, 2000).

Unemployment:   Unemployment and under-employment under Obama?   Remember the vast number of working-age people who were unable to find jobs and had given up actively looking for work during the Obama yaars?   The labor-force declined during Obama’s years and in Sept. 2015 it was the lowest since 1977.  Millions during those 8 years  were not working.  Remember all the people who  were reduced from full to part-time employment due to ObamaCare insurance rules?  In comparison, prior to the pandemic Trump’s policies  have encouraged job growth and put increased the well-being of workers and that of their families. [Teresa & Rich Guerriello’s Letter]

Income inequality:      How come so much more inequality?   Obama or Trump related?    Under Obama, after a full four years in office the unemployment rate was higher than when Obama took office Jan. 20, 2009.  This high unemployment rate persisted because it was the weakest expansion rate since the 1940s.   During  the 8 years of Obama with low economic growth and high unemployment, income inequality increased.    [Lee Huffman]

Aptos Psychologist:  Lately the drum beats by progressives and mainstream   media are getting louder and louder  about ‘income inequality’  that exists between ‘whites’ and Afro-Americans.  Progressives connect the increasing  income inequality between whites and blacks to ‘structural racism’ and ‘white supremacy’ .    Those are made up constructs of which there’s considerable discussion lately.

Why not just face the economic facts that during  Obama’s economy there was considerable increase in income inequality. That was there before Trump took office.

hey whitey… stand in the back of the line now! victims of racism more often whites now?

Dr. Jacqui  Lewis, an Afro-American pastor in New York City with Middle Collegiate Church,  offers two anti-racist workshops.    She discusses only  what to do about racism towards…. blacks.

But what about racism towards whites?     Whites Believe They Are Victims of Racism More Often Than Blacks

from Social Work Today:   “Whites believe that they have replaced blacks as the primary victims of racial discrimination in contemporary America, according to a new study from researchers at Tufts University’s School of Arts and Sciences and Harvard Business School.

“Both whites and blacks agree that anti-black racism has decreased over the last 60 years, according to the study. However, whites believe that anti-white racism has increased and is now a bigger problem than anti-black racism.

“It’s a pretty surprising finding when you think of the wide range of disparities that still exist in society, most of which show black Americans with worse outcomes than whites in areas such as income, home ownership, health, and employment,” says Tufts Associate Professor of Psychology Samuel Sommers, PhD, coauthor of the study that appears in Perspectives on Psychological Science.

Researchers asked a nation-wide sample of 208 blacks and 209 whites to indicate the extent to which they felt blacks and whites were the targets of discrimination in each decade from the 1950s to the 2000s. A scale of 1 to 10 was used, with 1 being “not at all” and 10 being “very much.”

White and black estimates of bias in the 1950s were similar. Both groups acknowledged little racism against whites at that time but substantial racism against blacks. Respondents also generally agreed that racism against blacks has decreased over time, although whites believed it has declined faster than blacks do.

However, whites believed that racism against whites has increased significantly as racism against blacks has decreased. On average, whites rated anti-white bias as more prevalent in the 2000s than anti-black bias by more than a full point on the 10-point scale. Moreover, some 11% of whites gave anti-white bias the maximum rating of 10 compared with only 2% of whites who rated anti-black bias a 10. Blacks, however, reported only a modest increase in their perceptions of “reverse racism.”

“These data are the first to demonstrate that not only do whites think more progress has been made toward equality than do blacks, but whites also now believe that this progress is linked to a new inequality, at their expense,” note researchers. Whites see racial equality as a zero sum game, in which gains for one group mean losses for the other.

Trump and Biden square off on jobs — get things built (Trump) or re-regulate energy economy

Trump or Biden?  On jobs?  Which do you pick?

This is based on material  in the WSJ, Friday, July 17, 2020, The Campaign Finally Begins by Kimberly Strassel.

Trump plans ‘top-to-bottom’ overhaul of the federal environmental review process which stands in the way of nearly every infra-structure project in the country.  That would create millions of jobs, attract more business to American and make the USA more competitive.

Biden just  released his $2 TRILLION climate change plan, product of a task force co-chaired by Rep. Alexandrea Ocasio-Cortez.

Biden vows to outlaw all use of coal and natural gas to generate electricity within 15 years.  He will ban oil and gas production on federal land and offshore. He seeks ‘zero emissions’ cars.  Biden is promising to delete the jobs of millions of Americans — at a times of soaring unemployment.  A ban on offshore drilling alone would cost 200,000 jobs and damage regional economies.  Basic consumer choice would disappear for vehicles, dishwashers, even homes.

Biden wants to massively re-regulate the energy economy.  Trump said,  “We want to get things built.”

Aptos Psychologist:  Let people live their lives free from as much regulation as possible.Let people go back to work when and  as they choose.    Open the schools.  Start new charter schools — which have fewer regulations —  if  teachers in union jobs  don’t want to teach.  Social distancing  issues can be worked out.  Masks and the wearing of them for long periods of time is   problematic  both in terms of cleanliness and simple breathing.

What say you?  Weigh in on the conversation about jobs, Biden and Trump.

Black Lives Matter? What say church leaders (Trinity Covenant, Episcopal, Catholic) about racism, looting & violence on Trinity Sunday

Killing blacks.  Looting.  Violence.  Black Lives Matter?  So what say Catholic, Episcopal and Trinity Covenant church leaders in Aptos, CA  — if anything —  on Trinity Sunday  about the recent  killing of an unarmed black,  about riots and looting?

The Catholic priest at Resurrection Church  said nothing  about recent events.  no reference to the riots, the looting or the killing of  an unarmed black man by  a white policeman.  What Fr. R  said:   God is love and love means relationships and ….   make your daily relationships about love.  God is love and love means relationship.  A simple message.   Catch it on You Tube.

At  Trinity Covenant Church the  minister  T.M.  started his sermon with the words, It’s a sin to kill.  It’s a  sin to loot….    He went on to say, Look at Black Lives Matter website,  See  what the Movement  stands for. You will find that   Black Lives Matter  is  anti-family….  Of note, at Trinity Covenant you can worship in the sanctuary (with  social distancing), outside in your car  in the parking lot  or listen in from home.

Take a look at the Black Lives Matters website.   Click the link.   Black Lives Matters  promotes  inter-generational, non-nuclear family arrangements. There’s  mothers,  kids  and  they all live together with perhaps  a queer or two. Maybe an aunt or two also hanging out with them. No mention about men and their role.

Hey, Black Lives Matters folks:  Where are the Afro-American  men that fathered  the children? Who is telling black men  to stop killing other  blacks and start raising kids with a mother and father present in the home? A terribly huge percentage of black deaths (85+%)  are committed by black men.  That is the real problem.  Last year police killed twice as many white unarmed me (19) compared to black unarmed men (9).  Those are the hard, cold statistics that Black Lives Matters chooses to ignore. Check out last week’s Wall Street Journal for the most recent statistics.

Who is going to tell blacks to wake up and smell the roses?   Check out the facts. If you black mamas  and black poppas want  your children to go to college then get married and stay married.   And put your  kids in Charter Schools with non-union teachers. And stop buying into the victimhood card. That’s my view.

The website Black Lives Matters celebrates Obama’s  ‘if only I had a son he’d look like Trevon Martin. Black Lives Matters   celebrates the Gentle Giant of Ferguson,  the supposed martyr who died after he reached in the police car to grab a gun.   Both those   supposed ‘heroes’  of Black Lives Mater are  men  with long rap sheets and  a history of violence and use of  illegal drugs.

Yes, start listening.  Click the link and   Listen to  Candice Owens, a young articulate black  with views why blacks celebrate black thugs as martyrs.  It’s a community thing. You are a ‘honky’ if want to succeed and you are a martyr if you have a violent history and rap sheet.  No other culture celebrates thugs as heroes she notes.

Now, what about  the episcopal church leaders  in Aptos?  What says the episcopal  priest on Trinity Sunday? Mother T  of St. John’s focused on  current events specifically on  systemic racism in America.

How Whites should  / or  might  respond to the ‘ systemic racism of  police killing Black’ s  was the  sermon topic Trinity Sunday   by Mother T.     The day before,  she  attended a Black Lives Matter  rally   6/6/ 2020  in Watsonville CA  where   Mother T   held a   sign,  Black Lives are Holy, Sacred and Created in God’s image. There, she saw another sign,   White Silence Equals Black Deaths. She went to the Black Lives Matter rally  in Watsonville, CA to end white silence.

Mother T  with St. John’s  prefaced her sermon that  she identifies as White and  in her sermon was speaking to other Whites.

Essence of  Mother T’s sermon:  Sometimes white people need to stop talking and start listening. Repeat that sentence.

One way to start listening she says   is to join  the Facebook group  Be the Bridge.   This group  requires new members to engage in active listening (no posting and no comments) for three months. Three whole months.  That impresses Mother T.  (It is easy to join. Just follow 3 rules.)

Any discussion of the Trinity on Trinity Sunday   at St. John’s? Not that I noticed. Mother T suggested that  her mostly White parishioners focus on the  re pre-scribed reading for the day, The Creation Story.    God created the world and saw it was good.

The episcopal Mother T  added,   There are no adequate analogies to understand the Trinity so   be silent in the face of all we don’t know.

Like a good read?  Try  Dorothy Sayers Begin Here, the Mind of the Maker.  Sayers writes that  God is the  Creator and He knows the end of the Story.  And he knows the  main players  such as His son and the Holy  Spirit.  Sayers  writes  good crime novels too.

For more on  Dorothy Sayers,  read Robin Phillips Saints and Scoundrels.

What to do about Covid-19, looting & other Democrat failures? Vote in Nov.!

‘Hand over the brain.’

Democrat politicians expect you to hand over your brain when thinking about recent lootings, the killing of an unarmed black by a white cop and how to manage Covid-19.   Do you live in a town or city run by Democrats?  Watch out! Think for your self!

What can you do about Covid-19, looting in the streets and Democrat  policy failures?  For sure, vote in November.   In the meanwhile, use your brain to make decisions and do so with courage and a heart that is caring.

Courage. A heart. A brain.  That’s what the lion,  the tin man and  the scarecrow wanted. And those are precisely what  Democrat Party  policies lacks.

New York is a Democrat stronghold.   New York  been a hot spot during the Covid-19 epidemic with a higher death rate than the rest of the U.S.  The actual disparity is absolutely shocking.  As a proportion of the population, the number of excess deaths in New York City during the epidemic has been 16 times as high as in the rest of America.(Wall Street Journal, The Measure of New York’s Covid Devastation, June 3, 2020).

Many  east coast and west coast  cities and states are controlled  by the Democrat parties. Thanks to Democrat progressive policies,   San Francisco on the west coast  is  known as the city of feces and homeless.  That’s Nancy Pelosi’s home  town.

Democrat controlled New York City is   now known as the place where the most die from Covid-19.  That’s where 4,300 Covid-19 patients were transfered  from New York  hospitals to nursing homes.  This exposed the oldest, frailest and most vulnerable to the virus.  (WSJ, The Measure of New York’s Covid Devastation, June 3, 2020).

The Democrat politicians that run cities have bought into the belief that the police are a bigger problem than rampant disorder. Where did that belief come from?  Remember President Obama and his policies towards the police.  Eight years of Obama and his AG Eric Holder have had a huge impact.

In response to the recent killing of a black unarmed man by a white policeman  Eric Holder was asked to day  6/3/2020 in a podcast on Obama’s website,what is your most radical dream?‘ Holder replied,‘that people be judged by their deeds and  not  sterotype people.”

Deeds — let’s judge people based on their deeds says AG Eric Holder.   Blacks make up 13% of the USA population and in 2018 African-Americans and made up  53% of known homocide  offenders in the U.S..  African-Americans  commit about 60%  of  all robberies.

What about who  is killed by  the police?   In 2019, the police fatally shot 9  unarmed blacks and  19 unarmed whites  according to a Washington Post database, down from 38 and 32, respectively in 2015.

So, last year in 2019  twice as many unarmed  whites  were killed compared to  unarmed blacks.  There’s been no outrage or looting because  unarmed white men  died.

In 2018 there were 7,404   black homocide victims.  That’s alot of blacks dying and most of them are killed by another black person  That is the sad, rarely discussed  story than Democrat politicians  do not address.

What about the safety of police officers?   A police officer is 18 times more likely to be killed by a black male than an unarmed black male is to be killed by a police officer.   The above  statistics are from The Myth of Systemic Police Racism, WSJ, June 8, 2020.

California and New York are both run by Democrats. Both states have been slow to re-open from the Covid-19 pandemic.  In Santa Cruz, CA people are still kept off the beaches during th 11-5 hours and people are still “sheltering in place” wearing masks.

What to do?  Use your brain, have a heart and show courage.

Stone & Weber seek to kill golden goose Proposition 209 which keeps CA color-blind & replace with racist policies of affirmative action

Assemblyman  Mark Stone and Dr. Shirley Weber   District 79 seek to  kill  the golden goose,  Proposition 209,  by passage of   ACA 5 which, if passed,  brings back the corrupt   policies of “affirmative action”.

Dr. Weber talks the talk that CA needs””opportunity for all” but Dr. Weber walks the walk that women and persons of color are those needing the opportunity and that quotas of “affirmative action” can deliver.

Read Dr. Weber’s Sample Letter which   she wants you to sign and  send back to  her.  The   phrase  “women and persons of color”  are the persons Dr. Weber  actually seeks to assist.

Under the cover of media attention  focused on  the  COVID-19 pandemic and the  riots, the Democrats  seek swift passage of ACA 5 through the CA state legislature  so  ACA 5 will be on the ballot in November.

Why is the golden goose — Proposition 209– so golden?  Proposition 209, passed in 1996,  made it illegal to use race as basis for decisions as to who got into CA state universities, who got contracts and who was hired for public jobs.  CA has been “color-blind” and the golden state has benefited enormously.

ACA 5 supporters seek to bring back “affirmative action” to CA.   Why bring back the  old, racist policies  of  “affirmative action” that use skin color as basis for decisions?   Why, given that Proposition  has been is a success story why replace it with failed policies?

The numbers clearly show that — because of  Proposition 209 — more minorities attend Univ. of CA state schools and very important more graduate.  Because of Proposition 209 students are better matched with colleges and thereby better able to succeed.

Recently returning to CA,  Ward Connerly  allies in 2020  with Asian Americans against  race discrimination.   Tenty-five years ago  Ward Connerly as a member of the University of California’s Board of Regents got an inside look at the “corruption” affirmative action introduces.  Connerly launched Proposition 209.

Mark Stone represents Santa Cruz CA and areas near by.   Let’s get Mr. Stone on the  KSCO 1080 radio so he can answer questions about “affirmative action” and why he thinks it’s time to kill the goose Proposition 209 that gives the golden eggs of thousands of success stories wherein students matched better with colleges succeed and graduate from schools in far greater numbers than before Proposition 209.   Why bring back the old quota system?  Is this really the way  forward for “women and persons of color” to succeed?

What say you?

New scientific data why CA must open schools & businesses now for health of all CA residents

flu kills similiar to COVID 19

Flu kills and we don’t lock up healthy people  in their homes to prevent flu.  Numbers support that COVID-19 kills very few people.   Millions infected and few die.

Now — not in weeks or months hence — CA must open the schools and businesses and do so for the overall  health and  general well being of all Ca residents and  citizens.    Social distancing and sheltering at home reduce people’s immune system and result in many  harmful secondary effects. So says Dr. Erickson of Kern County, CA.

You Tube has taken down the video by Dr. Erickson.   It is available on AIR.TV.  Below is what YouTube would allow posted.

Ask hard questions of your County Health officers.   How many people  have you  tested? How many positive for COVID-19?   What is the death rate?  Is the death rate similar to that of flu?  Why impose draconian measures for COVID-19 which has a similar death rate as flu?     Is this county seeing more domestic violence, more child abuse, more suicide?  Why is it OK to go to COSCO and mingle and not able to go to a pizza parlor or to church?     Why  does this county in CA lock up healthy people which reduces their   immune system and destroys their livelihoods?

Never before has USA locked the healthy in their homes and now is the  time to stop says Dr. Erickson, Kern County  California  MD who tests the majority of persons in  Kern County for Corona virus.

It’s time now  to open the schools, small businesses and put people who test negative back to work. Yes, test people.  And there is the capacity  in CA to test as many as need it.  Finger stick tests can give near immediate results.  Look at what Kern County has done.  All CA can do likewise.

Secondary effects — people not going to their  doctors because of fear contracting COVID-19  and  thereby not caring for serious medical conditions, child abuse, domestic abuse and suicide are all spiking.    These secondary effects   will harm society in ways that will affect many people’s lives for years to come.

Dr.Erickson’s conclusions:  COVID-19 similar to the common flu  infects  thousand  but  kills relatively few.      Repeat:   thousands are infected  from Corona virus from the virus but few die.   Every year 35- 60 thousand die from flu every year in the USA.   Yet we don’t lock healthy people in their home to prevent them from getting flu.

Dr. Erickson’s clinics test the majority of persons tested in Kern County, CA.

Dr. Erickson says that it’s time for healthy people to stop ‘sheltering in place’  and stop wearing masks as these measures  reduce the body’s  immune system. By touching hand to face and mouth people routinely take in bacteria which the body responds to and  over time these actions strengthen the overall  immune system.  People who clean all home surfaces and wear masks outside are reducing the ability of the body to take in bacteria and strengthen their immune systems.

What about the “expert” Dr. Fauchi who predicted millions would die based on his theoretical models?   Dr. Fauchi, an academic, and has not seen a real patient in  20 years.  Dr. Fauchi’s models are theoretical models — not  based on actual  hard data.    Now we have the data.   And the data says clearly it’s time now  to open the schools and open small businesses. Let people who test negative to go back to work.  Let those without symptoms go back to work.  Yes, those with underlying medical conditions especially respiratory ones  many need to wear masks and gloves.  Not the general public.

Kern County data:   Dr. Erickson tested 5,213 with 313 positive for COVID-19.   6.5% of the population tested.  These numbers are similar to flu:  widespread infection and few deaths. 

In California, there have been 280K tested of a population of 35 million with a 12% positive rate.  In CA the possibility of dying from the virus is 0.03.  97% of persons in CA recover without any long term problems.   Kern County CA  has a 6.5 percent and CA has a 12.5 percent rate of infection.

As the prevalence rate goes u the death rate gets smaller and smaller.  Millions cases and a small number of deaths is the overall pattern.  

Dr. Erickson examined the hard numbers for New York state, Spain, Norway and Sweden.  The same pattern prevailed.   In New York state, 39% of those tested were positive for COVID-19 with a 92% recovery rate and a 0.1% chance of dying.   In Spain — which is #2 in the race for most cases — 940,000 were tested with a 22% rate of positive infections, with a o.05 death rate.  Sweden did not lock down and Norway did.  They had similar patterns.
