San Berdoo: “Lock your doors and load your guns”

So, San Bernadino, California is broke. Like a lot of places in the Golden State they have over spent and promised their employees nice, rich retirement packages. Now they find themselves unable to afford it all and have been forced to lay off 80 police officers. Of course, being run by leftists, they decided to cut cops first. That has always worked before, scaring the populace into approving additional tax increases.

But what happens when the number of taxpayers is exceeded by the number of people getting benefits? That never happened before. What is the next threat you can use to scare the public into paying more?

The city attorney is trying something new. He is warning the populace that they need to fear each other.

San Bernardino is so bankrupt that the city’s attorney is advising residents to “lock your doors and load your guns,” in the face of budgetary cuts that have downsized the police force by 80 officers.

City Attorney Jim Penman made his comments to about 150 residents at a council meeting assembled to address the uptick in crime, including the recent murder of an elderly woman.”

It’s a nice try but it still doesn’t address the underlying problem. Once you have destroyed enough producers that they can no longer support the bloated, self-centered bureaucracy, where will the money come from?

Oh. That’s right.

Obama.

    I’ve lived in the people’s republic for nearly 28 years now. And to this day, I can’t figure out why ANYONE would live in Bernadino.

    Interesting to read comments after the article. A couple koolaid drinkers dismissing valid concerns over law enforcement.

    Liberals are always dismissive of rational thought and analysis of problems. Particularly if the conclusion is one requiring self reliance and reduction of flawed government.

  3. Notamobster says:

    Its important to note that when government fails you, they always tell you to rely on yourself.

    Might just as well cut the middle mans throat and rely on yourself to begin with.

  4. James says:

    Liberals abdicate responsibility for their own well being to third parties, that yet someone else pays for.

    Liberals are a whining, sniveling, helpless, dependent bunch.

    Pretty good list of adjectives. Describes them well. The only thing I might add would be self-centered and angry.

  6. James says:

    Liberals are angry at others who are self driven to success. That has to be controlled, regulated, and the proceeds distributed fairly.

    There’s no need to pay this guy anymore. He just turned his city over to vigilantes. Anyone for class warfare?

    Sounds like my wife.
