UPDATE ON CALIFORNIA NEW GAS TAX…….

Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez

Responds to Governor Brown’s

May Budget Revision

5-24-2017


COPIED FROM HER WEB PAGE:

Assemblywoman Melissa A. Melendez (R-Lake Elsinore) released the following statement today in response to Governor Brown’s May Revision of his 2017-18 budget proposal:
“This budget is a perfect Democrat con job.  After forcing a multi-billion dollar, potentially illegal, tax increase on all Californians, with the promise of better roads, Governor Brown and his fellow Democrats are already diverting funding to their own pet projects.  In this budget proposal, they are diverting 30 percent of funding from the gas tax to non-road related projects like building parks and job training for felons. That’s money from the very gas tax the Democrats promised would go solely to fixing our decrepit roads and providing relief for traffic congestion. I hope all Californians will take action and start demanding accountability with their tax dollars from the Democrats who run this state.”

Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez represents the 67th Assembly District, which includes the communities of Lake Elsinore, Canyon Lake, Murrieta, Menifee, Wildomar and a portion of Hemet. It also includes the Riverside County unincorporated areas of Lake Mathews, Good Hope, Nuevo, and Winchester.

THOSE SNEAKY KIDS ON PHONES: WHEN TO BE CONCERNED

HAVE A TEENAGER WITH A SMARTPHONE?

Chances are your teenager spends more than several hours a day on texting and social media via their smart phone, if you look at what they’re actually doing you’ll see a lot of what is being called “snapstreaking .” There are some funny buzz abbreviations for videos and a accumulation of letters and numbers that may look like some type of modern day shorthand.

Heck you may even use some of them yourself:

LOL = laugh(ing) out loud

GR8 = great

IRL = in real life

TYVM = thank you very much

IMHO = in my humble opinion

BRB = be right back

J/K = just kidding

L8R = later

NP = no problem

WYD= what you doing?

Many of these terms are completely innocent, but some safety experts warn there could be more than what you realize with some of these texting codes. Some of that texting language might double as codes for suicidal thoughts, bullying, sex and or drugs.

The possibilities of harm coming to some of these kids is enormous and today’s parents need to safeguard and be creative to keep their teenagers from the harmful side affects of the Internet.

Safety applications are available that allows parents to monitor what is on their browsing and texting habits, they can issue red flag warnings on certain words and the context they are using them in.

The national Institute of mental health says: suicide is the second leading cause of death for young adults and adults ages 15 to 34. Teen suicide is taken on a new reality in recent years and is in large part due to to the advancement of technology.

We teach our kids to look both ways when they cross the street, and don’t talk to strangers. We need to look at the same type safety issues to protect their kids in the digital era.


Estimates are that 10 million teen messages per month go across 21 different sources that include text, email, YouTube, Instagram, and Snapchat. Below is some of the most recent list of sneaky terms that teen use:

 

53X = sneaky way to type “sex”

KMS = kill myself

LH6 = let’s have sex

KYS =  kill yourself

MOS = mom over the shoulder

POS = parent over shoulder

CD9 = code 9, parents around

GNOC = get naked on camera.

99 = parents are gone

WTTP = want to trade photos?

LMIRL = let’s meet in real life

1174 = meet at a party spot

IWSN = I want sex now

CU46 =  see you for sex

FWB = friends with benefits

ADR = what’s your address

MPFB = my personal f*** buddy

PAL= parents are listening

TWD = texting while driving

GYPO = get your pants off

There are many watchdog applications that can be used as I am not going to recommend any as I am not going to mislead.

One former data analysts stated that “GNOC” was typed 4,384 times on android phones in the United States in 2016.

Experts are saying that spying on kid’s conversations usually does not work, but they have to be educated in communication and modern tools, and are usually bright enough for that to be done. The expert turned use keywords, data science and machine learning to pick up on this information. And the applications that are used detects potential issues, and the app sends alert to your phone via email or text, and then offers solutions to help with the presented issues

Whether or not you plan to monitor your teens activity you may want to inform yourself of the latest text codes, according to the website Netlingo. They list the top 50 chat acronyms parents need to know.


WAZZUP DAWG: THAT CALIFORNIA UNIVERSAL INSURANCE PLAN? THE PRICE TAG IS IN……

$400 BILLION TO REMAKE CALIFORNIA’S MARKETPLACE

by Marty Carlson

5-23-2017


According to the Sacramento Bee and multiple other media outlets, the price tag for California proposed health insurance marketplace to create a publicly funded universal healthcare system was analyzed by a state financial analyst and the results were released Monday.

An additional $200 billion a year would have to be added to California’s budget, which would require new tax revenues to create a so-called single payer system. The analysis assumes the state would retain the existing $200 billion in local, state, and federal funding currently funk received to offset the total $400 billion price tag.

The cost analysis is seen as the biggest hurdle to creating a universal system, this system was proposed by Senators Ricardo Lara, D – Bell Gardens, and Tony Atkins, D – San Diego.

It obviously remains a longshot bid. Projected costs have derailed the efforts for over the last two decades in attempts to establish such a system in California.

Currently, $100 billion-$150 billion per year is being spent currently by employers. Which are numbers which could be available to help offset total cost, according to the analysis so new spending to implement the system would be between $50 billion and $100 billion per year.

Sen. Lara stated Monday at an appropriation hearing that “healthcare spending is growing faster than the overall economy…. Yet we do not have better health outcomes and we cover fewer people,” he went on to say is critical that California charts their own path.

The idea behind SB-562 is to overhaul California’s insurance marketplace’s, reduce overall healthcare costs and expand coverage to everyone in the state regardless of immigration status or ability to pay. Instead of private insurers, state government would be to single-payer for everyone’s health care throughout a new payroll taxing structure, similar to the way Medicare operates.


Dawg says:

Put aside the immigration issue for just a minute, and look at the tax burden alone that would be placed on what is the remaining workers in California. This states leaders have an opinion there is an unending supply of money through taxation, as a constantly increase the burden upon the working class, which includes the low-income class. In addition, past history has shown California has not been able to act responsibly with major influxes of cash through taxation, the most recent being the new road tax, these assessments, cash flow for the California where they have not acted responsibly or used those tax dollars for what was intended. The previous billions of dollars paid for the roads in taxes at the pump, car registrations, not to even mention the massive amount of money paid for out of state trucking pays to use the roads.

Now you throw in an added factor of illegal aliens being provide coverage how do you sustain that type of expense in today’s working environment in California, which is becoming very quickly a benefit and welfare state.

Also keep in mind we are not talking about health care with this issue, we are talking about health care insurance, which I think is a notable difference. Until we have a healthcare system that is patient orientated and not profit orientated there will be no good solution to any of this. Obama care was not a good solution, but I do think it was a start in the right direction but poorly implemented, and the so-called Trump care is not much different.
