Some Things to Ponder: 07-04-12

Some things to ponder this 4th of July:
- We just returned from a trip to Bend Oregon and did not see any signs of the economic blight we are experiencing in California, why is that? No empty car dealerships, no boarded up shops, no foreclosure signs. Why are our neighbors to the North doing so much better that we are?
- Why is CARB seeking legislation to exempt their cap-and-trade fraud from the open meeting laws of California. What is it that they want to hide, or have to hide, from the public?
- Why is the Governor seeking a CEQA exemption for the high-speed rail project? If the CEQA is good for all of California, why is it not good for high-speed rail?
- What is the real impact of Grass Valley deciding to out-source their assembly and testing to firms out side of Nevada County, and maybe out side of the State. Will Grass Valley become just a design facility. Design facilities do not generate the tax revenue that a manufacturing facility generates. Nevada City leaders were depending on that manufacturing tax revenue to pay off the City Hall renovation bonds.
- Why was the Tea Party Patriots the largest unit in the Nevada City 4th of July Parade, larger than the Republican unit, or the Democrat unit, or for that matter the Peace Center?
- The San Diego Fireworks display was scheduled to last 20 minute. Why did the San Diego fireworks display last only last 9 seconds?
Somethings to ponder the rest of the week. Do you have any answer for these puzzling questions?
