We here in San Mateo County are experiencing the only time in history where lazy people have a better chance of survival than ever before.

Having been born and raised in Jersey, I landed in what I call, “a liberal’s paradise,” where everybody and I mean everybody, is guaranteed employment, free medical, dental and vision, free education, free food, free housing, free clothing, free utilities, free cellphone, free bus pass and free controlled substances.

Believe it or not, such a place already exists in the United States, it’s called prison.

Well written, Mr. Manara. Maybe the cost of all this free stuff is why King Newsom decided to release 76,000 felons back into the CA wild – too expensive? Yet King Newsom is giving state correctional officers nearly $5k in pandemic bonuses and extra paid time off in their new contract, in addition to raises for the next few years. More money to oversee fewer prisoners. One has to wonder whether Newsom is buying off the union with taxpayer money due to his recall. Hey King Newsom voters, you own this.
