    I would hardly call it being in power for all those years. Depending on how you want to define it I suppose. Various people like to say (positive and negative) that the democrats are 'in power' in DC. The truth is never that simple. But it makes for a good campaign and media talking point.
    There is no secret about the state of things and why they exist. Its how politics works. Everybody wants what they see as 'problems' sorted out. So long as it is done in the way they want. And of course so long as they dont have to pay for it (get others to pay), dont have to help do it, and its done in what they decide is a timely manner.  Thats fine. Just dont try and shift responsibility for the results, or lack thereof, onto others when it doesnt work. Happens all the time in history, because the human species is populated by morons from top to bottom, and America is not immune.
    I dont know when, but at some point Republicans threw independents like myself (and I am, despite what some others are told to think) to the curb and labeled us as lefties. As for why? And its an opinion. Independents generally dont give money to politicians or their PACs. I dont. But I have a vote. However then there is another person. A partisan but not a voter (among that %50 of the country that doesnt vote) that has an unused vote but gives campaign money. Would a politician... I dont care which side... prefer to work to get my vote (knowing thats all they are going to get) or would they try to get the partisan vote AND their money? And with that in mind, what will they say and do (or prevent to ensure the other side loses) in order to try and appeal to that person?
    I used to do the $1 thing on my taxes to help fund political campaigns to encourage at least a little bit of fairness or other non-partisan voices that dont have the big money. Figured it was my duty as an American. But after spending limits were thrown in the trash I stopped. Thanks Republicans. You got what you wanted and the money. And in time the Democrats learned to beat you at your own game. I wonder if those that tried to keep them were secretly happy that they lost. Both sides spend several billion dollars every 2-4 years. All in order to flood what you see, read, and hear in order control what you think. Everyone can shut it all off at any time. Protect yourself from the attempts at control so you can have time to think. But they dont. Based on everything around us I suppose those in control have won.
    A long post. But at times, various things need to be said instead of punch lines.

    i think porverty is more related to the rising prices of housing , and its specially expansive in CA.
    Average minimum salary workers cant afford decent houses, or even a rent ed appartment some times more than 1000$ a month,
    Its a problem seen in a lot of countries.
    The pandemic sored the price of everything , and its not any politics that did that , stop blaming governments ,
    red blue demos or repub , tories or libs no one could controls the inflation its world  economics .
    i think also in US if you dont have insurance and get sick you could ruin yourself to get threated then you can easily loose everything and end up in the streets.
    When people are in misery they often start doing drugs to forget  then they fall in a no end hole .
    i know its a shock in a supposed rich country , but when you dont have any or few middle class , there is a big divide between rich and poor.

    COVID did nothing to create panic (thank Dr. Fauci and the media for that), price surges or supply chain issues.  Nothing.   The Government did all of that.
    The government ruined small businesses and put people out of work.  They mandated masks and vaccinations that required people to get a vaccine just to keep a job they had for 30 years.  And for what?  People still got sick and died (and still are after numerous boosters).  And we all know that masks did absolutely nothing. They gave people a puny stipend to make people think that they were actually doing something.
    If you think that the pandemic was not politicized, you're absolutely wrong....

    It’s was easy to politicize it when living in CA. When at its worse CA because of there policies had ships waiting off shore for up to 5 months to unload there cargo.  The SF bay was a huge parking lot so they mandated they stay off shore till room opened up.  In the mean time they were working over the truckers every way they could slowing down the whole process of unloading.  And even now with all that went in there passing laws that will remove thousands of trucks from operation in CA when they are needed the most to distribute the cargo.  All part of them wanting to go green with out think8ng is f the affect it has on our supply chain

    We have a lot of that shit up in Washington state too. We had one of those old RVs park at a grocery store a while back and catch on fire (they were cooking meth in it). The burning husk just sat there for weeks with police tape around it until the store finally spent money to clean that crap up. 
    I thought it was just a west coast thing but I went and visited Missouri a month ago - I drove the 2000 miles across the Rockies and the plains. I saw homeless crap like that in more places than I imagined. Even in Wyoming (I didn't even realize anyone lived in that state) I saw some tents and RVs in Cheyenne (the older dilapidated looking RVs I assume are homeless). I saw more homeless in Missouri too. Even in small / medium size towns (~100k) around where I grew up. 
    I believe its mostly drugs. The homeless I run across are usually crazy. They don't seem to really want help, they seem to just want money for drugs. They aren't happy receiving food and there sure isn't any that hold signs that say 'looking for work'. There is an interesting YouTube video on the homeless problem in Seattle that explores this. We as a society are going to have to come to a decision on if we want to lock people up in insane asylums like the old days (or some shit like that) or just let this kind of shit potentially spread everywhere as housing prices continue to go up.
    The old trailer parks and project housing that existed when I was young was where most of that crazy shit was contained. Now those trailer parks are being sold for millions (in the west anyway) and the poorest and craziest have no where to go but the streets (they won't go to shelters because they can't do drugs there).

    This is a video I made to show one of hundreds of homeless camps throughout Sacramento, Ca. One of thousands throughout California. This is about 1 mile on Roseville Road in Sacramento. Every few months they will go and clear them out. Not necessarily the people, but the stripped stolen cars and abandoned RVs. A few weeks later the area will look exactly the same with new stolen vehicles, an abundance of trash and multiple forms drug use disposed items. I have not only heard of but have seen multiple people OD from heroin and fentanyl. Meth users will walk down the street talking to themselves or laid out on n some random public grass area passed out. This shit is wild to me.
