  1. 2 years ago I visited Lompoc and went to Walmart to buy a disposable razor to shave. They had them behind the counter and I had to pay for them separately. California is dead. I left in 2006 because or taxes. Sad. I love your podcasts and listen all the time.

  2. Thank you for another spot-on Pod Cast. The Democrat Party is self-destructing. Victor’s “boomerang” analogy says it all. Things could be better, but Pelosi was fired and SBF exposed the Democrat Party quite nicely.

    The Biden Family threw out a very large boomerang that’s heading back their way via the House Oversight Committee. The AG just threw one announcing another self-righteous, phony investigation, with no evidence, of Trump as backlash for the Joe Biden and his family House investigations. The FBI Director have one coming back for violating the civil rights of many law abiding citizens and behaving as Joe Biden’s henchmen.

    Joe Biden, the DOJ and FBI behave like a criminal mafia. One can hardly imagine how immoral and greedy they are to persist with their behaviors.
    One could never imagine such widespread corruption could take control of our great country.

  3. I was chatting with an Albanian acquaintance (in Albania) and American culture came up. He was very surprised to learn that blacks comprise less than 13% of the U.S. population. He thought it was much higher from what he’d seen on our media.

  4. Victor is speaking close to his heart (California) and it shows!

    Btw. Can we get an acknowledgement that Sami was right about the elections? Sami, in her predictions, often shows the foresight of a daughter of Zeus . Victor is Hesiod mixed with Vergil.

    “The Nancy Pelosi syndrome”
    She has been in the house for 50 years five decades the only one to serve that area for half a century.. She has owned it alone it is ridiculous cruel and decadent. I in order to stay in power she lives all the stuff that has happened and criminality and all the results. This is the disease of our government 500 people keep repeating in office, and our government is gone. It’s an oligarchy. It’s no longer a government of the people and by the people. Terms have to be search for all government positions the Congress can’t do it. It has to be done by constitutional convention called by the states to straighten out government every single person in government should have a term to their office from the Supreme Court and down to the janitor. This all started by FDR. No one EVER MENTIONED it. No one talks about it, If somethingIg isn’t done the next president Biden will say forever or until he dies. If Trump got elected for another term, he would go for third and he would not leave either. We are in a desperate state. If we don’t correct it now it’s over. I’ve been saying this since 1976 when I ran for Congress we must TERM LIMITS.

  6. I departed the city of my birth in ’62 in my early thirties when I was transferred to the east coast and then to the midwest where I have remained for most of the past sixty years. I used to weep for San Francisco and my alma mater Stanford, but no longer. I live in the real world among real people. The City has deservedly become the laughingstock of the rest of the country. Old Herb Caen would be devastated. While Stanford ranks in the top three Universities look at some of the products, Feinstein, Schiff, Jarrett, Booker, and Madow and now the Crypto gangsters. The Hoover is the last vestige of truth in the area. The best thing that could happen is a repeat of 1909 which might get people to think about what is really important.

  7. Victor, your point of “did all of the people who died at Shiloh, Iwo jima, and Omaha beach” really die for these progressive ideas? I think not….how bad does it have to get until we say “No”
