I call on my fellow Californians to come to the aid of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy.

It is evident to me by his speech on the House floor this morning that having the position as Minority Leader rather than being Speaker pains him so. He is forced to defend the shit hole person residing in the White House.

We can do him an enormous favor be defeating him in the upcoming 2020 election. That way he can spend more time with his family.

I think it would add years on to his life. Without defeat he will have as his legacy being one of the humans with the most trump shit on his nose.

Please, if there is any decency in your make up, use it to help poor Representative Kevin McCarthy in his hour of need.

2. How red is his district? I would imagine it has been gerrymandered to the hilt.

5. I believe that California districts

Are determined by a non partisan commission. Not gerrymandered. But his valley district is very red. And he is truly an idiot.

7. When I lived there it was very red. That was in 2001 to 2006. I use to write letters to the editor

 

in the Bakersfield Californian. My letters and a weekly Democratic news paper that you could find in the library were about the only progressive words in print there.

I lived in the boonies in the mountains east of Bakersfield. There were about 1,200 people in 12 square miles. All my neighbors were cattle ranchers who supported the Iraq war. It was open range territory. We all had horses and some goats. We actually had cattle round ups to drive the cattle to the trucks that took them away.

We had a weekly news paper in our area called the Twin Oaks Fence Post. Every letter in it was anti Muslim and pro war. The editor of that paper lost his son in the Iraq war. We had a memorial service for him.

My wife and I went to the Unitarian church in Bakersfield to see if we wanted to join. When I introduced myself they recognized me by my letters to the editor. The posted them on their bulletin board.
