#1 Cut off their water and electricity.

#2 It's just hilarious how the outdated, discredited racist idea of States Rights is suddenly making a big comeback with Democrats. It's as if they never had any principles in the first place and wanted to dominate us with the federal government the whole time.

#3 Are these not considered strategic defense materials? Act accordingly against anyone who interferes with the flow of these strategic defense materials.

#4 It's the same people doing this as having a hissy fit over network neutrality, right?

#5 California is running out of money and they can't tax their way out of it.

They can drill to earn money to pay the pensions for state employees. Or they can not-pay those pensions and watch the state suddenly go GOP as union members vote against the betrayal the way the rust belt did.

#6 One might wonder if they're really desperate for Trump to declare martial law in California in order to stop these sorts of things. That could be their desire so they can kick off their Glorious (Utterly doomed to damn near instant failure) Revolution. And yes, their leaders are cynical enough to believe that 1. They will win and 2. None of them will have to pay the price for the Revolution.

#7 "Unilateral Ultimatums are only bad when the other person does it" is a sure recipe for (armed) conflict. When you stop negotiating the countdown begins.

#9 Damn Bourgeoisie, won't let any of us proletariat in the energy business catch a break... but if they put it that way, they'd have problems, so they're "Saving Mama Planet" instead.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
