    Wouldn’t it be cheaper and easier to build an island utopia for California Dems and pay to move them there? Of course that would leave the remainder of California’s human beings, the regular people, to tough it out ,here, alone, without the benefit of their ‘supreme logic and direction, but we would just have to cope.
