How many phone calls did you get from PG&E Saturday & Sunday… did you count the emails and text messages? Wow, let’s hope they put the same amount of energy into getting the power back on when the threatened outages occurs… Do PG&E communicate, do they realize in rural areas where pressure is put on residents to switch to UVerse phone service if the power is out, so is access to emergency services, no phones, sirens or other way to notify residents of any type of emergency whether it be fire or request for an ambulance. I understand the necessity to take extreme measures for fire protection and of course we would hope the first line of defense is to clear the energy line ares of overhang trees and brush. Cutting off every citizens ability to conduct emergency response for a myriad of other potential emergencies is unreasonable. I wonder if this is PG&E’s subtle way of encouraging us to invest in solar energy for local and personal use so that we won’t be dependent on one sole energy source. Just thinking.
So here we are 635 days into the T-rump presidency, approximately 103 spent golfing plus more vacation and visits to personal property holdings like Mar-A-Lago and other golf properties he owns. Our national debt – At the end of FY 2018 the gross US federal government debt is estimated to be $21.48 trillion, according to the FY19 Federal Budget. Wow, I wish we could see the President’s taxes, I mean he said he would show them to us if he was elected….does he ever do anything he says he will…does he ever take any responsibility for anything? You know if you look up the history of federal deficits you might notice the huge differences during Democratic administrations compared to Republican, although they preach austerity and fiscal conservancy that is not the real picture. Be sure to vote- don’t lose your ballot, mail it on time or drop it off at the County Clerk’s office at the courthouse.
