KSFO 1/16 with Barbara Simpson

January 18, 2012

Congressman Tom McClintock disscuses: 

  • The Economy and how in the past 3 years the Obama administration have enacted policies based on the notion that Government spending can create jobs in America. 
  • That government cannot create jobs, but what it can do is create the conditions that jobs either flourish or wither away.
  • The Tea Party-how they have not gone away and are more energized than ever.  They realize that we must protect our Country from overspending and overregulation.
  • California's RDA problem and how the abolishment of Redevelopment Agencies has long been overdue.
  • The Military, defense budget cuts and when America puts their men and woman in harm's way by sending them off to war we must put all our fight, might and furry of our Country behind them.
  • The Payroll Tax Cut and how we need to meet three conflicting objectives:  continuing the payroll tax cut; stimulating real economic growth and avoiding doing further damage to the Social Security system. HR 3551, the Social Security Preservation through Individual Choice Enhancement (or SSPICE) Act achieves those objectives.

California Water: It's the Storage

By admin on March 6, 2014

President Obama recently visited the drought-stricken Central Valley of California and announced his administration's response: he wants to spend another billion dollars to study climate change.

I can save him the trouble.  The planet has been warming - on and off - since the last ice age, when glaciers covered much of North America.  The climate has been changing since the planet formed, often much more abruptly than it has in recent millennia.  

Until the earth begins moving into its next ice age, we can reasonably expect it to continue to warm.  That will mean less water can be stored in snow packs and therefore more water will need to be stored behind dams.

There, I just saved a billion dollars.

The Great Question

By Tom McClintock on December 6, 2013

The House Judiciary Committee yesterday raised the overarching question of our generation: will the American Constitution stand?

All the laws passed under that Constitution have elaborate enforcement mechanisms backed by armed force -- but the Constitution itself has no such enforcement guarantees. It was designed to be internally self-enforcing, with the powers of government clearly divided among three separate and equal branches of government.

But this self-enforcement mechanism can only work when the powers are evenly divided, when those who exercise those powers are devoted to that Constitution, and when the people insist on it.
