Oh, I see you missed "Angelyne" who goes by just one name.

I honest to God wish I had voted for Angelyne, just to tell everyone I did. My grandad (RIP) claims he voted for Gary Coleman (RIP).

And then both you and your dear deceased grandpap would have thrown your votes away.  But at least you would have gotten a chuckle out of it.  Haw - haw! /s


Well, it's clear that nobody I was going to vote for on question 2 was going to win.

If Newsom was kicked out, there was essentially no chance of anyone but Elder winning.

You should care because one of the things governors get to do is appoint senators when there is an unexpected vacancy.  The senate is currently split 50-50 and Dianne Feinstein is 88 years old.

I have a story about ripping apart a rotisserie chicken at a picnic in a graveyard, while watching classic movies being screened on the wall of a mausoleum -- everyone there was horrified, but they still ate the chicken -- even the guy with the weepy eye.

Different strokes. When I briefly lived in Illinois, I cared enough about California that I envisioned living there, so I moved there/here and now it's 43 years later. It was the best single decision of my life.

jvl: Enigmamf: There is at least some basis to their claims - they argue that less water should be set aside for wildlife / fish preservation in the delta. In dry years currently, environmental uses (species protection and salinity standards) are allocated about 60% of delta inflows.

Arguments like that are typically made by conservidumbs in the south valley. The southern Central Valley doesn't even empty into the ocean most years -- there is NO water available to save and store in the southern valley.


The San Joaquin flows into the delta, so I'm not sure what you're thinking of? Unless you mean the SOUTH south, i.e.. the Kern River. I made sure to stop and see that in 2017 - it's an impressive river in wet years.

Fark user imageView Full Size


I think they're referring to the maximum 5000cfs backwards flow on the old and middle river, which is most severely limits how much water from the Sacramento river system can be pumped out of Clifton Court / Jones pumping stations.

Also the notion that salinity issues are an "environmental use" is misguided. The SF Bay estuary's existence provides a nursery for many commercially fished species. Cut the water flows and the fisheries will die.  Also the bay will die and stink up the air of a major population center.

Yeah, more balanced arguments tend to call it "fish vs. farms". The reason for the 5000cfs limit mentioned above is to "[r]educe the vulnerability of emigrating juvenile winter-run, yearling spring-run, and CV steelhead within the lower Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers to entrainment into the channels of the South Delta and at the pumps due to the diversion of water by the export facilities in the South Delta". But because it is benefitting wild fish (as opposed to farmed fish), I don't think 'environmental' is inaccurate.

I do object to calling salinity management 'environmental' because maintaining salinity is necessary for the delta to function as a conveyance for human benefit - if back-pressure sucks saltwater into the delta, you stop getting fresh water out of the pumps. It also benefits the intra-delta farmers who rely on that water being fresh for their own use. The natural state of the delta is far more saline (variable with the seasons) than we maintain it now, so if anything keeping salinity low is altering the environment, rather than preserving it. Maybe call it 'functional' or 'operational' use.

I can't stand Newsom either (for different reasons than the plague rat Trumpers in the Calibama parts of the state hate him). But I not only voted no on the recall, but did a write-in vote for Newsom on the "Well, who should be governor then" question.

TWX: mofa: As a Californian, I'm beginning to unclench. Fortunately, Larry Elder was the front-running Republican, and many people in California HATE HIM. I'm pretty sure he helped suppress Republican recall votes.

Weird; our one state is 12% of the United States population, and Caitlin Jenner probably came in like fifth place.

Your state needs to divide itself into three states, one centered around SF, one centered around LA, and one centered around SD.

That way 12 percent of the population ends up with at least 12% of the senators, instead of 4% like right now.


Oddly enough San Francisco is already in the center of the state. Northern CA starts at the Sonoma County line. Otherwise your plan is brilliant!

Sir Paul: Enigmamf: anfrind: Skeleton Man: Sergeant Angle: Election fraud claims in 3..2..1..

Maybe there was election fraud. I find it hard to believe that 33% of Californians are death cultists. But I've never been there myself, so.

The rural parts of the state tend to be just as red as any red state, especially the far north and the Central Valley.

In fact, if you drive down any major highway in the Central Valley, you'll likely see several "Congress created dust bowl" signs, arguing that the California drought is a hoax intended to put hardworking farmers out of business so that they'll have to go on welfare and become Democrats.

There is at least some basis to their claims - they argue that less water should be set aside for wildlife / fish preservation in the delta. In dry years currently, environmental uses (species protection and salinity standards) are allocated about 60% of delta inflows.

As a Central Valley resident, I'd like to point out that Congress appropriated the money for the Central Valley Project, and the Army Corps dams that time releases with the growing seasons, and the Bureau of Reclamation projects, and the levees, and a lot of infrastructure to move water south where it's sold to the contractors at below market rates.

If Congress also says we have to keep the Delta alive, that's their prerogative.


That's actually not true at all - it doesn't matter a whit who paid for the projects. The EPA oversees the rule-making process that determines what water can be used, and their rulings carry every bit as much force over state and local projects as federal projects.

And that doesn't address my point at all: It is a decision to use the amount of water we use. I think it's generally good science, but it is a decision we have made. The farmers with their highway propaganda are arguing against that decision - not "arguing that the California drought is a hoax" as was claimed above.

The entire central valley outside of like Sacramento is a depressing shiat show. Drive on 5 between the Bay and LA and you get to see it for yourself. Awful drive and all the towns are hick central.


I refuse to make that drive on the 5 anymore.  The majority of it is only 2 lanes in each direction, which just results in one long 70 mph fluid traffic jam in the left lane.  A third lane should have been added 20 years ago but we don't spend much on infrastructure these days.

LrdPhoenix: Seems kind of dumb to tell people to vote no and skip the replacement question.  Should have told them to vote no and pick a specific person for the replacement question.  That way if it did go through, you'd have a good chance at picking the office back up anyway, and if it didn't go through you could humiliate them further by not only beating them at the recall, but also in the replacement.


The LA Times recommended Faulconer.  Specifically, vote NO on question one ("Shall we recall the current guy?"), and Faulconer on question 2 ("If the recall succeeds, who should be Governor?")..

The looked at all the candidates, discarded the ones who were obviously unqualified or not serious, and compared the remaining candidates' experience and their (for lack of better summary word)  "sanity."

They said it was not a difficult choice.  Faulconer ws the ONLY candidate on the ballot who had any relevant experience and wasn't a total covidiot or seditionist.  So despite their reservations for endorsing a Republican, they had no choice but to recommend NO voters check the box for the former San Diego mayor so that in the event YES succeeded, we didn't get a clown like Elder.

That message got lost.  Nobody I know voted YES on question 1, nor did they choose anyone on question 2.

johnny_vegas: TwowheelinTim: Northern CA starts at the Sonoma line

Reasonably you should be right, but most Californians don't feel that way


There is a simple test to determine whether (culturally at least) an area is considered Northern or Southern California, and that's this: Are most people in the area Giants fans, or Dodgers fans?  For the areas that are in the Central part of the state, the answer to that question invariably determines which side of the NorCal/SoCal divide it falls on.

For example: Santa Barbara is clearly SoCal, and it's obviously full of Dodgers fans.  Just up the road in San Luis Obispo, however, they think of themselves as part of NorCal, and everyone there roots for the Giants.  Similarly, in Fresno they're Giants fans, and Fresno is deemed NorCal, but the next shiathole to the South, Bakersfield, is clearly SoCal and so everyone there is a Dodgers fan.

This is a universal truth, there's no denying it.

(There also happens to be a similar line somewhere in Oregon, a little north of Eugene, where everyone to the south roots for the Giants and everyone to the north roots for the Mariners, but that's a different topic because we're talking about California here.)

Cyberluddite: johnny_vegas: TwowheelinTim: Northern CA starts at the Sonoma line

Reasonably you should be right, but most Californians don't feel that way

There is a simple test to determine whether (culturally at least) an area is considered Northern or Southern California, and that's this: Are most people in the area Giants fans, or Dodgers fans?  For the areas that are in the Central part of the state, the answer to that question invariably determines which side of the NorCal/SoCal divide it falls on.

For example: Santa Barbara is clearly SoCal, and it's obviously full of Dodgers fans.  Just up the road in San Luis Obispo, however, they think of themselves as part of NorCal, and everyone there roots for the Giants.  Similarly, in Fresno they're Giants fans, and Fresno is deemed NorCal, but the next shiathole to the South, Bakersfield, is clearly SoCal and so everyone there is a Dodgers fan.

This is a universal truth, there's no denying it.

(There also happens to be a similar line somewhere in Oregon, a little north of Eugene, where everyone to the south roots for the Giants and everyone to the north roots for the Mariners, but that's a different topic because we're talking about California here.)

Good.

Stay upwind of the meth fire.

I'm in Huntington Beach. Onshore breeze protects against everything.

Except Nazis. It's bad when you report a swastika etched into a sidewalk, and the Huntington Beach city council goes 'meh'.


Right? I grew up in Redondo Beach, and occasionally heard anecdotes about the HB nazis. There's a reason us L.A. folk avoid going behind the orange curtain.

I wonder if this will set Elder up to be the GOP's standard bearer in next year's gubernatorial election? That would suck for Republicans :)

They started before the election

Like he actually had a shot to begin with. This was just a massive ad and commercial for his 'talk show'

Trump is SO jealous right now.
