Voting in the California Primary? I am. Good thing I have some help.

I got my official voter info guide for the upcoming 2018 California Primary Election. Lotsa reading.



Fortunately I have help.

Nancy's great. She picks out all the biglyest, stronglyest most viable conservative christian candidates and issues. Nancy wants to make sure that my white, affluent, privileged lifestyle remains intact.

Thanks, Nancy!

2. That tag itself skates on very thin ice

Does it clarify things for everyone or does it insult everyone's intelligence?

3. OK just to make things clear.

I use Nancy's Picks to tell me what the people I want to vote against really want. Anything sneaky included in bills or candidates -- Nancy exposes them because she wants them to happen.

So generally, I will consult this guide and vote the opposite... maybe 95-100% of the time.

9. I didn't mean you specifically. You were right. Clarification was in order.

But I'll be damned if I will normalize the practice of slapping a warning label on humor.

4. I always ask my mother who she likes...she reads all the fine print

and is smart (and heavy duty Dem) and I look at who all the Dems are. I read the fliers from the mail. Everyone who is not a Dem gets tossed out automatically ASAP . If it comes down to two Dems than I read the fine print. NEVER VOTE for a GOP! That is Rule #1. No ands, ifs or buts.

5. Of course never vote GOP. However...

It's becoming clear, particularly in CA, that running with an (R) next to your name risks losing. Bigly. Heck, Issa's not running at all! Yay!

It might be a little easier with candidates, although we still need to watch out for red people wearing blue suits.

Case in point (from Nancy)
STATE SUPERINTENDENT of PUBLIC EDUCATION MARSHALL TUCK (D)
Of the 4 candidates running, MARSHALL TUCK (D) is the "LEAST DANGEROUS" to Conservative Values. There are NO Conservatives, and NO Republicans in this race, unfortunately.

On the positive, TUCK supports Charter Schools, is opposed to regulating Homeschooling, supports Christmas religious songs, opposes the Transgender Bathroom Bill, supports parents being notified before a student has an abortion,
and supports creating vocational training.

TUCK'S main opponent is extremely Liberal Assemblyman TONY THURMOND, who holds opposite views on these issues. DO NOT VOTE for THURMOND!


Nancy is even more "helpful" when it comes to ballot initiatives...

6. As a former union rep and teacher in CA I know who the people are running for the school board

on a local level and sometimes the choices are for Dems only. That does not get them a free pass in my book. If I read their bio and know the inside scoop from my teacher pals and my own experience than I write in my dog's name. That is the ONLY time I will not vote for a Dem since even though they are Dems, they can still suck in my opinion.
