CPUC Considers What Ratepayers Will Pay For San Onofre

The power industry was so adamant to de-Regulate they had Steve Peace author a Bill to exactly that and the California Legislature gave them their wish. Now why should we rate payer be burden with their cost?

The industry is now operating in a free market and should not be allowed to pass on to the consumers cost other than the actual generation and distribution of electricity.

Democrats Pushing to Limit Prop 13

The State of California needs to rein in the retirement package of State employees. Private industry did away with pension and now workers depend on their own tax deferred retirement savings, with insignificant employee matching, and Social Security. The people paying government employees' salaries and retirement benefits are now just trying to cope with stagnant wages and disappearing benefits. Now these free spending politicians want to raise more taxes for their own benefits. I cannot believe government employees retiring on 80% of their pensionable income and quite a few retiring on a six figure annual retirement income. Government employees should be paying into Social Security and Medicare. The opted out of the program so they can fleece the taxpayers.

Has The Job Market Rebounded For San Diego's 2013 College Grads?

Millions of repetitive low skilled consumer goods manufacturing and supply chain jobs were outsourced to China. These jobs created jobs for college educated professionals and this fact was ignored by the U.S. Congress and White House when they with the urging of their benefactors, Corporate America and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, made China's trade status to Permanent Normal Trade Relation.

MFN China, the predecessor of PNTR China, was suspended due to transfer of sensitive military technology. With that concern the U.S. Congress made MFN China permanent (PNTR China) at the insistence of Corporate America, U.S. Chamber of Commerce and Ivy League economists. PNTR China is TREASON.

San Diego Could Be Exporting More, Report Finds

JeanMarc,
I am not surprised you bought in to the Corporate America and U.S. Chamber of Commerce propaganda. PNTR China lowered the import tariff rates on Chinese manufactured goods from a 46% to 6% with no reciprocation from China. That made it profitable for Corporate America to move their manufacturing and supply chain operation to China then imported to the U.S. what they used to manufacture in the U.S. for export and domestic consumption. The most damaging effect of PNTR China is that economic and manufacturing superiority are the pre-requisite to military superiority. Now China is expanding its military and space program while the U.S. is so broke that we have to cut back on military spending and just about everything else.

Corporate America and the Chamber are using the made up reason of shortages in qualified American workers so they can force the crooked U.S. Congress that they bought lock stock and barrel to increase the H1-B visas so they can bring in country more foreign workers. What they cannot out source they just tell the U.S. Congress to allow them to import more foreign workers.

Don't be gullible; you need to educate yourself by doing your own research.

San Diego Could Be Exporting More, Report Finds

What do we expect after NAFTA and other free trade agreements, and PNTR China which is TREASON? PNTR China allowed Corporate America and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to export good paying American jobs to China and provided China the technology and manufacturing know-how and to boot the training of Chinese engineers and technicians. All these with dual applications; commercial and military.

PNTR China, ratified by the U.S. Congress in 2000, is the major reason we have trillions in budget deficit at the Federal, State and Local levels, and under funding of Social Security and Medicare. PNTR China drastically lowered the import, individual and business tax base. MFN China, the predecessor of PNTR China, was suspended due to transfer of sensitive military technology. With that concern the U.S. Congress made MFN China permanent (PNTR China) at the insistence of Corporate America, U.S. Chamber of Commerce and Ivy League economists.

With Immigration Reform Pending, Calls For An End To Workplace Audits

Here we go again another Immigration Reform; it is ridiculous the way these politicians name their Bills and what they write into it. I know very well that the border won't restrict illegals from crossing so in another twenty five years another amnesty or maybe they will just dismantle the border. Read the excerpt below and what businesses are required to do, that is the most effective way to control immigration, Border Patrol agents should make surprise visit at business establishments instead of manning the borders. Take away the sugar and the ants won't come.

The Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA), Pub.L. 99–603, 100 Stat. 3359, enacted November 6, 1986, also Simpson-Mazzoli Act, is an Act of Congress which reformed United States immigration law.
In brief the act:[1]
• required employers to attest to their employees' immigration status.
• made it illegal to knowingly hire or recruit unauthorized immigrants.
• legalized certain seasonal agricultural illegal immigrants.
• legalized illegal immigrants who entered the United States before January 1, 1982 and had resided there continuously with the penalty of a fine, back taxes due, and admission of guilt. About three million illegal immigrants were granted legal status

Senate Immigration Bill Calls For A Drone-Patrolled Border

Missionaccomplished,
I am from the old B school and know full well about Economics 101. Business create their own customers and if they don't provide more than living wages who then could affort their products and services. The issue here is illegal immigration not labor cost. Sure business profit from cheap illegal labor but we taxpayers bear the burden of providing them with healthcare cost incurred when they go to the emergency room and public schooling for their offsprings.

Greenhouse Gas Levels Approach 'Worrisome' Milestone

I was watching a documentary on global warming and a spokesman for the Tea Party said that if they were wrong about greenhouse gas as not the main reason for global warming caused by the burning of fossil fuels, such as coal for electricity and oil for gasoline they can just apologize and say they are sorry for their mistake.

Senate Immigration Bill Calls For A Drone-Patrolled Border

Take away the sugar and the ants won't come. Why are we spending billions on the U.S.-Mexican border when a cheaper alternative can be implemented?

The U.S. Congress should allow the U.S. Border Patrol to implement a surprise inspection program so they can inspect of all businesses large and small to check for employee's legal status to work in the U.S. What the country needs is to remove all lobbyists in the Halls of the U.S. Congress and the White House so we can have a more comprehensive government policies not influenced by special interest group.
