Monday’s Sump Pump

One Pill makes you LARGER and one pill makes you small 

Zero to sixty in 19 days…….    Its taken nearly twenty days …  20 days before someone in the Republican Party to condemn Donald Trump’s Racist Statement about Mexico and Mexicans.  Marco Rubio was the first to speak out against Trump followed by Mitt Romney,Jeb Bush and Rick Perry.   With NASCAR joining a list of companies abandoning LA DON expect more Republican to follow. The challenge for the GOP is to somehow convince Latino voters it was just a dream.

Hillary Clinton will Sacramento’s Mayor Kevin Johnson wont   KJ dosesn’t want the public to see private emails he sent to an attorney while he was involved with The National Conference of Black Mayors  Must be somethin juicy  inside  La Mayor sued Sacramento News & Review, to stop certain emails from becoming public. A judge is likely to rule on Thursday. get you napkins ready.#juicy

 AGAIN! Okay, like who hasn’t need Kim Kardashian nakkkkkkkkkkkked!  Right?  Kanye’s wife is threatening to sue a company selling pictures of her while she was lying NeKKid by her pool.  TMZ says the company removed the picture from its web site.  Probably until her mom works out an equable deal .

OOPSIE !  In da big tomata you have a choice.  You can see fireworks show downtown or at Cal Expo.   Cal Expo near the center of town is by far the favorite venue. Thousands pay to park their cars to see the fireworks.  According to report,s 10 minutes into the show ,sparks from the firework cause several small fires.  The event was cancelled.  They haven’t decided  if they are going to issue parking issues. #howrude

CHEAP GREECE? With Greek Voters choosing to leave the EU, the country will reissue its own currency the Drachma. Before Greece joined the EU one dollar equaled nearly 340 Drachmas. can someone say SALE!

#Confused  A few years ago K street businesses said K Street should be opened to traffic ,its would benefit business.   On weekends K Street is often closed to traffic. #whattrafficitsKstreet

Big city fella, Born and Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Lived in New York (a part time New Yorker) for three years . I have lived in the Sacramento area since 1993. When I first moved here, I hated it. Initially found the city too conservative for my tastes. A great place to raise children however too few options for adults . The city has grown up, there is much to do here. The city suffers from low self esteem in my opinion, locals have few positive words to say about their hometown. visitors and transplants are amazed at what they find here. From, the grand old homes in Alkali Flats, and the huge trees in midtown, there are many surprises in Sacramento. Theater is alive is this area . And finally ,there is a nightlife... In.downtown midtown, for the young and not so young. My Criticism is with local government. There is a shortage of visionaries in city hall. Sacramento has long relied on the state, feds and real estate for revenue. Like many cities in America,Downtown Sacramento was the hub of activity in the area. as the population moved to the suburbs and retail followed. The city has spent millions to revive downtown. Today less than ten thousand people live downtown. No one at city hall could connect the dots. Population-Retail. Business says Sacramento is challenging and many corporations have chosen to set up operations outside the cities limits. There is vision in the burbs. Sacramento has bones, there are many good pieces here, leaders seem unable or unwilling to put those pieces together into. Rant aside, I love it here. From the trees to the rivers. But its the people here that move me. Sacramento is one of the most integrated cities in America. I find I'm welcome everywhere. The spices work in this city of nearly 500,000 and for the most part these spices blend well together. From Ukrainians to Hispanics and a sizable gay community, all the spices seem to work well here. I frequently travel and occasionally I will venture into a city with huge racial borders, where its unsafe to visit after certain hours. I haven't found it here. I cant imagine living in a community where there is one hue or one spice. I love the big trees, Temple Coffee House, the Alhambra Safeway, Zelda's Pizza, Bicyclist in Midtown, The Mother Lode Saloon, Crest Theater, and the Rivers. I could go on and I might. Sacramento is home.
