Average Californians not Partisans

OP/Ed: As a conservative Independent, in 2021, I prefer to deal with Democrats than people on the Republican side. I have no desire to preach to the choir. Today, I feel the shifting winds, as prominent Democrats like Sheriff Alex Villanueva and rank-and-file voters are fed up of the far left onslaught in the last year or so, from the “defund the police” movement to Critical Race Theory in schools to basic law and order issues (like meth labs in front of elementary schools).

Mean Tweets vs. Less Beheadings

Afghanistan: Much worse than Vietnam

Priorities should be a thing again.  However, in a modern day peaceful world, affluenza continues to run rampant.  When true danger occurs, like the Taliban takeover of Kabul, some wake up but unless it hits home like 9-11 did twenty years ago, many will stay asleep despite the documented videos and accounts of beheadings and women instantly put into sex slavery by a Taliban regime that has taken over every major Afghan city.

The Americans who feel the imminent danger, such as Afghan Americans who understand the true danger of the Taliban regime, and front-line deployed military and their families are now starting to audit the bad governance and rethink their priorities.
