Leslie Daigle supports eminent domain robberies

Leslie Daigle supports eminent domain robberies

June 1, 2012

By John Seiler

In preparation for next week’s election crunch, I’ve been taking a couple of days off to get in shape with plenty of sleep and bourbon. But something just happened I must report on.

At 3:39 pm today, I got a robocall on my cell that ended, “Paid by Leslie Daigle.” She’s running in the new 74th Assembly District against incumbent Allan Mansoor. Both are Republicans. I live in the district. My mailbox has been choked daily with two mailers from Daigle, one from Mansoor. She’s getting major funding from wealthy “moderate” Republicans.

The ad was a short spiel by Stanton Councilman David Shawver. Shawver himself is notorious for being the candidate government union goons pushed for Orange County supervisor in 2006 against anti-tax John Moorlach, who trounced Shawver with 70 percent of the vote.

Shawver is a big backer of the massive Measure J tax increase in Stanton. According to the statement he signed, “Measure J allows continued funding for public safety services by providing nearly $1.2 million annually in needed local funding.”

Of course, what they could do is cut cop and firefigher salaries and benefits, along the lines of the 9 percent drop in median incomes in California the past five years. Measure J, essentially, funds high cop and firefighter pay, perks and benefits — at the expense of struggling private-sector taxpayers.

In the robocall I just got, Shawver attacked Mansoor for voting in the Assembly to “take money from our local communities and give it to the state government.”

Translation from the Shawver mendacity: Mansoor voted to end redevelopment, which saved the state $1.5 billion in other budget cuts or tax increases. Redevelopment essentially robs poor and middle-class people of their property and gives it to crony capitalist developers. One of the few good things to happen to this state in recent years is that, because of the budget crunch, redevelopment ended.

So if Daigle replaces Mansoor in the Assembly, by the admission of her own ad she will back robbing the poor and middle-class property owners to reward the crony capitalists.

Under the new Top Two system, to really lose, Daigle has to finish third next Tuesday, after Mansoor and the Democratic candidate, whose name isn’t worth remembering. If Mansoor prevails eventually in November, it’s possible the Republican party will survive in California. Mansoor is anti-tax increase and takes the side of the middle-class taxpayers that form the backbone of the party.

But if Daigle survives on Tuesday, then beats Mansoor in November, the California GOP will begin Cheyne-Stokes respiration and should be given its last rites.

    I hope Mansoor wins too, JS. But don’t forget, he’s an ex-cop and either receiving a big public safety pension now – or is entitled to one. I haven’t checked – but he must have voted for AB 2299 which conceals the RE records of public safety – since the vote was 68-0. That’s the next biggest gift scam from the State legislature to the cops and firewhiners.

    I figure if the citizens of Stanton are stupid enough to pass Measure J – which I understand to be a added utility tax to fund the trough feeders in public safety – then they deserve to pay every red cent of it. If I lived there and it passed – I would move out of the city. If that crap ever comes to my town I’ll be front and center before the City Council with a 3 minute rant that would curl the hair on the back of your neck.

    I’m getting automated calls from pols – 4 a day too.

    Apparently there is a loophole in the law that allows pols to violate my ‘NO SOLICITOR CALL’ agreement with the State of California. The State is supposed to protect me from this crap and yet they allow their club members to disturb me at all hours of the day and night. And they are immune from court action too. As usual, they cover all their own bases while screwing the innocent citizen who’s trying to survive economically into the ground.

    I am glad that the tobacco companies are throwing a huge wad of money into the fight against Prop 29 tho. I have received at least 10 mailers from the postman over the last month or so. I hope it’s enough to kill Prop 29. If these bastards could put a measure on the ballot to force the citizens to pull the gold teeth from the mouth of their loved ones upon death with a straight face and mail it in to the State Franchise Tax Board – by God – they’d do it!!!! 🙁

    Yup Bub, the No Call List does not apply to politicians or political campaigns!

    Yet another example of how the laws don’t apply to our rulers. Remember, “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others”.

    I actually unregistered to vote in 2008 because I was sick of getting robo calls from people like Bill Clinton on behalf of the DemoNcrat Party. It was a couple of months before the general election and the clerk at the county clerk recorders office couldn’t believe it.

    At the time they were receiving a mass of registrations as the sheeple were rushing to vote for the long legged mac daddy as their lord and saviour.

    We need visionary candidates like the Sanchez sisters or Karen Bass to bring much needed diversity to Newport Beach…

    That has to be the epitome of sarcasm. Either that or you must be on some of the strongest sensimilla grown in Humboldt County.

    Anyone who voted for the Long Legged Mac Daddy has got egg all over their face. The honest ones admit to it. The crazies say that it was all Bushes’ fault and that we need long-legs for anothe4 4 years! HAH! 😀

    Brutalizing the unfortunate is not PC even for a hard core righty…can see why Teddy is concerned so much on this blog! There may be some other deep dark issues at work.

    Queeg, I am not a righty or lefty. I am a pro-American conservative the knows money doesn’t grow on trees and the RAGWAS, as constituted over the last thirty years, is stealing the Californian private sector to death.

    The kleptocracy of the RAGWUS has become so Raunchy that even I am hoping for total bankruptcy as soon as possible to free my fellow private sector workers from your thieving grasp. 😉

    I will be voting against any revenue enhancement for the RAGWUS.

    The RAGWUS needs all pay cut 30%, with no yearly income capped at no more than $90,000 a year. They need all benefits cut 50%, all perks eliminated, and all pensions over $40,000 a year cut to no more than $50,000 a year, with no COLA’s or spiking of any kind. With these just contractions there will be no need for increases of any kind. 🙂
