California Expands Civil Servant Travel Ban To 8 States

As 'The Left' rages about President Trump's so-called "travel ban" from 'mostly-Muslim' nations for its dreadful discrimination, the liberal-ist of liberal states has decided that California civil servants should be banned from traveling to eight US states because "we will not spend taxpayer dollars in states that discriminate."

Having unilaterally trotted over to sign a climate accord with China, secessionist California is restricting publicly funded travel to four more states because of recent laws that leaders here view as discriminatory against gay and transgender people.

As reports, all totaled, California now bans most state-funded travel to eight states. The new additions to California’s restricted travel list are Texas, Alabama, Kentucky and South Dakota. They join Kansas, Mississippi, North Carolina and Tennessee as states already subjected to the ban.

California Attorney Xavier Becerra announced the new states at a Thursday press conference, where he was joined by representatives from ACLU Northern California and Equality California.


“We will not spend taxpayer dollars in states that discriminate,” Becerra said.


California’s Legislature last year voted to restrict state-funded travel to states with laws that allow businesses to deny services to gay and transgender people.

So, it appears that travel bans TO discriminatory states is ok, but travel bans FROM discriminatory states (as Ben Carson noted there is not "one of the Muslim nations" that doesn't have "discrimination against women, discrimination against gays, subjugation of other religious beliefs") is horrirfic.

How long before California bans visiotrs from these 8 states?

For those of us who live in the shithole state of Kalifornia, please have sympathy.  It really blows, crazies everywhere, no relief.  Today Los Angeles county approved a $2 million taxpayer funded legal fund to assist deportees, even those with felonies.  One councilwoman who protested said it was unfair that law abiding illegals would have to wait in line behind sex offenders, murderers, etc.  The other latinos on the council just ignored her and voted to fund the measure.  My tax dollars to fund the legal defense of illegal sex offenders so they can remain in my neighborhood.  This state is bat shit crazy.

Even worse, a new law lets illegals request criminal convictions be removed because they were not warned a conviction could result in deportation.  This is to stop ICE agents with deportation warrants.  Sorry ICE, but the crime that warrant is based on no longer exists.Another stupid pet trick Dems in Sacto are pulling is retroactively changing the rules for recalls to prevent a citizen effort to recall Democrat Josh Newman.  If Newman's recall effort succeeds, Democrats will lose their supermajority.  Newman was the deciding vote for the gas tax increase.  The last time legislators messed with Californians car expenses, Republican Schwarzenneger was elected.

I live in LV, NV and there are a lot of CA visitors here on our freeways. Those piece of shits never get the fuck out of the fast lane and drive like idiots, 45 in a 65 in the passing lane. Ride their ass, falsh your lights blow your horn, they still dont move. Fucking inconsiderate self centered assholes.When I get the chance to go around them I swerve at them in my lifted truck while holding my horn down and cut them off hard while spraying my wiper fluid on their new clean cars. I tweaked my wiper fluid sprayer on one side to spray over my windshiled for this purpose (I know I know  I have too much time on my hands).I would love to get one of those big ass disels that blows a fuck ton of smoke when you accelerate and then just hover in front of them.

Chinese are famous for that.  They read that drivers license handbook in Chinese.  It said the limit is 55 or 65 or whatever it is.  And they would rather be rear ended by a semi than pay a traffic ticket.  Watch next time, you'll see them wearing white gloves and a sun visor to protect them from UV rays.

I drive to Lost Wages a few times a year from the armpit of America, aka The Inland Empire.  Californians don't just drive poorly in Nevada, they do it at practically every intersection.  The light will change and then a few seconds later, a car will drive right through its red.  Four way stop? That is considered "a suggestion".  Drivers put their courtesies on hold and drive like they are playing Grand Theft Auto.

Perhaps Philly could fall in the ocean and somehow float, unmolested, around the globe and re-attach to the continent at California, where it rightfully belongs.  William Penn would arise from his grave to celebrate, as would all the rest of the state.  Failing that, I would be satisfied if it would just secede to New Jersey.  Jersey deserves it.

America has imported her racial and cultural chaos and already is institutionalizing hatred. IN short, the Congress deliberately imported Third World ignorance and a socialist vote. Case in point is California. And with Los Angelized ignorance comes support for the Oligarch's "gender ideology" that breaks down taboos. Gender ideology uses sexual liberation as political control to make men slaves to their passions, leading to crisis that serves to neutalize resistance and to overthrow the existing order.Thus, gender ideology not only promotes homosexualilty and gay marriage, but sexual appetite, feminism, pornography, transgender bathrooms rights, "sexually liberated men ( castration)," abortion.. and whatever sexual deviance that liberate a rational being from reason..The use of sexual liberation to incide rebellion and control whole populations was first articulated by the Marquis De Sade, to be followed up by Sigmund Freud, Herbert Marcuse, and Alfred Kinsey...

I live in one of those states and can guarantee them that it won't prevent people from CA -- tons of them -- from migrating here to buy massive homes with cathedral ceilings after selling ranch homes in their state. Lesbians and gay men will be included in the great migration, motivated more by economic concerns than by living next door to people whose ideology is a perfect match to theirs.

As for the discrimination, I can vouch for that. My state has many 80% to 90% majority-minority workplaces, mostly presided over by Black managers. Many government agencies discriminate in handing out civil servant status disproportionately to minorities, using the bully method to achieve this goal, with the minority employees and managers bullying out most of the whites before they get civil servant status. The corporate offices just discriminate in handing out low-wage, churn jobs. This includes corporations with large government contracts, but not just them by any means.

I have worked in two, well really 3, businesses managed by lesbians who are not oppressed here in the South. Two were just small businesses, where you were better off if you were a member of their minority bully clique. One was a large corporate back office, with a combination of very assertive lesbians and non-lesbian bully mommas.

The lesbians were not at all hesitant to express their lifestyle, making jokes about it a lot in meetings, and no one cared. Nor were the non-lesbian mommas, God knows, reluctant to spend a large part of work days on their workplace mommy-baby pageantry. When they were not engaging in dramatic absenteeism, that took up large chunks of the work day. Woe to the woman -- gay or straight -- who did not squeal with the appropriate amount of delight in these cutesy baby show-off, momma-bonding rituals.

Whether gay or straight, the personal lives of these female, financial services employees were more important than the work [as usual]. This place also had a little racial diversity, not much on that measure of diversity, however, and how I wish I had heeded the wise warning I was given when naively expressing my enthusiasm for being hired to learn this part of the industry where I hold four licenses.

At that point, despite my age, the lesson had not yet sunk in that so-called legally required licenses are much less useful than a productive womb in the world of fake feminism, where working moms reign supreme.

The productive womb, unlike the licenses, guarantees enough unearned income from a spouse, an ex spouse or from a stack of welfare/taxfare benefits to make the low wages acceptable. And, more importantly, it grants you momma-clique membership. Although in this corporate back office, here in the conservative, racist, sexist South, there were two routes to corporate office bully-clique membership: the momma route and the lesbian route.

Neither of those lifestyle issues has one thing to do with the job the women were performing, whereas the licenses and the other office experience I had actually did. But the costly, recurring expense and testing required to maintain the licenses mean little in snagging and retaining anything but a straight-commission, pyramid-style sales job or a franchise-buying opportunity.

The same thing is true of most degrees and even experience in many cases. Social clique membership trumps all, and no, it is not always or even mostly the white, straight Christians who comprise the reigning clique members. Or, when it is whites, you have to narrow it down further. A Black momma has a much better chance than many white, straight, childless women in this bully-momma corporate back office and many others.

"Ummmm, ummmm, baby girl, maybe, you can work here for a little while and then go somewhere nicer," one of their employees said, letting me know the kind of bully den I was going into. Were it not for the amazingly skilled bullies at the Department of Human Services, where I also worked, those ladies would get the top prize in viscousness in a long list of bully-momma back offices and call centers.

There is a lot of competition in the mean momma, female-dominated workplace category. You know you are really mean when you get near the top. But they certainly are in no way all lesbians; most of them aren't lesbians simply because gay people are a minority.

The fact that momma cliques are catty and competitive in that way does not guarantee other types of work-related competitiveness, like working hard to generate sales, retain accounts and meet the quotas. In almost every case where a bully-momma clique reigns, there is a high volume of excused absenteeism for moms who watch each other's backs. The bullying is likely part of their strategy. Run everyone out who works hard and is nice to customers, which always results in high sales and retention numbers, and then take turns taking off with abandon.

On the other hand, I have yet to see a mean or non hard-working gay, male colleague. Like with the lesbians, you don't work with as many of them due to the fact that they are a minority, but the ones that I have worked with were excellent employees. I have come to the conclusion that -- gay or straight -- women run in packs and are allowed to do so with no outcry of discrimination as long as they hide behind their wombs, using their kids as an excuse, and yes, the minorities do it, too, when they are in control.

All the male employees at a local Ralphs supermarket left, one after another.  Eventually the place was run and managed by women.  I have waited in line while the cashier shot off her face, and checked her phone. I once needed something that was locked up.  So I waited patiently in line.  Got to the front of the line and was told I had to wait, while the cashier took care of everyone else, then let me know I would have to see someone else.  So I went to customer assistance and waited there.  Eventually someone noticed me and helped someone else first.  Then proceeded to let me know she did not know where the key was.  The place was an absolute hen-fest.  Two months later, Ralphs announced they were closing the store.

I'm in CA.  I can tell you, what these nutjob politicians profess is not the majority opinion.  Many people I talk with disagree with this far-left agenda and are sick of paying for huge entitlements, government/county pensions, and bloated property taxes.  You have 1% of the state trying to compel the other 99% to live a certain way.  It's not happening....

Same deal elsewhere.  Politicians are SOOO out of touch, it's gone from comical to farce...the recent doings in GA only the latest manifestation.  Thing is, California's been at it for a while longer than the rest and so is farther along the road to ruin.  They'll give Illinois a run for its money in the first past the bankruptcy post...BTW, how's that Oroville dam holding up????  A million plus downstreamers would like to would those of us who enjoy California produce.

I just was reading articles today on the dam. The people below the dam are not out of trouble yet. The real big melt of the snow pack has not started. A few places still have over 60 feet of snow on the ground. Many of the ski areas have 40-50 feet still on the ground and expect to still be snow skiing in August.The Oroville dam is not an isolated structure. The State of California is working on repairs and draining the water behind the Oroville dam. There are multiple smaller dams up the rivers that feed Oroville. These are not being drained to take the pressure off the Oroville dam. In the event there is another hot spell like we are having now the upstream dams have no reserve capacity so the entire volume of melt water will have to be passed down stream to Oroville. Many are worried that the smaller upstream dams could fail and if any did the volume of water would take out the down river dams and Oroville. Until I sell my house and leave this communist state for good I am glad I live on the edge of a desert.

The issue is that it is happening. And the RATs refuse to engage in civil debate. The Marxist "professor" of philosophy and reason running around hitting people in the head with a bike lock says it all. If the law is not applied to these terrorists there is law and no wants what's coming next. Stop them legally and politically now whaile there are peaceful remedies.

It may not be the majority opinion, but the majority keep voting the same people into office by a 2-1 margin. It happens election after election and it will happen again next time we head to the polls. Moonbeam brown is bad, but just wait for newsom. Talk about a real whack-job!
