Astonishing California bill would shut down free speech, require fact-checkers

Just when one thinks that California couldn’t sink any lower….

Oh what the heck, who following the news coming out of California would think for a minute that this Communist state could not sink any lower.

Now Commie Cali wants to shut down free speech meaning, if successful, content would not be published online until government sanctioned fact checkers give it their seals of approval.

Let’s be honest.  We saw this coming…at least some of us did.

Decades ago the saying “as California goes, so the rest of the Nation follows”.

For the sake of millions am hoping this not to be true at this point in time. She has morphed into a “swamp of her own devise” and no Country or Nation should use her as an example for success….

California can go to hell…in a handbasket.
