Unhappy Been gone for a while.

Its been a while and I am very sorry. I have been fighting with a heavy heart govt tyranny as it has landed in my lap here in my home town/county/state/nation.

I have been battling state mandated and city mandated soulsource hauld curbside tash and recycling pick up. many of the town going from zero pick up to two 96 gallon carts at a cost of $63 bi-monthly on top of $75 per year land use fees for our kern county dump. Now we are facing a water ordinance making a crimnal out of me if I spray off my drive way or allow any overpsray or runoff from my sprinklers.

At the state level I have been fighting the battle we just lost to try and stop the governor from signing laws like AB 962 (one of over 700 laws passed in CA this year alone!!!) Handgun ammo restriction and registering wich makes you give a thumbprint an a full page of perosnal info for any handgun ammo purchase and makes all transactions face to face eliminating internet orders.

add to this the culmination of 100+ years of progressive giant socialist govt movment at all levels, we now face the party of washington (no diffrence between sides) succesfully transforimng my America into somthing I could not have imagined. Between tea parties constant calling, writting and e-mail to elected officals, months of on-line research only to find that we lost the war years ago and are only now waking up to see the results, I have had little or no time to put into a hobby that will soon be regulated out of exsistance if the progressive and eco socialists have their way. Just look at our state, we are butt orifice of america, and we have allowed ourselves to get this way. So I have had to (with a nervous and heavy heart) become more active than everbefore in my life. my time is spent at city hall, calling/writting and trying desperatkey to wake up those I come in contact with, there is much work to do next year with the in or out campaign to rid us of entrenched progressive candiates that have driven our republic into the ground.

I hope I do not offend, I know there is a diverse opinnoin base here in so-cal, I hope to spend more time here and enjoy the diesel passion before it gets snuffed out by impending smog laws, mileage standarsd and anit free makrte practices that will see our dodge/cummins destoryed at the hands of anti - capatalists.

Keep us informed on events, and please I am counting on all of you for meets,ideas etc.... I am very remote and poor, post pics, vids, etc... and by all means plan set up etc... So-Cal is large and there are pockets of us all around, if you keep it local thats fine too many cannot afford time nor fuel to travel hours. This is a growing chapter and we need recruitment.

Thank you and I am sorry for my absense and political stand but I must act for my unborn childrens future. If no one had acted in 1776 we'd still be singing "God save the king(queen)"

D-C out!
