Considering the recall vote for Newsom, it reminds me of a book I once had about Murphy’s Law and many related subjects. I don’t know what happened to the book. Indeed it was funny, but it was also full of all sorts of wisdom such as, the strongest part of the paper is always where the perforations are.
In this case, I am reminded of a theory consisting of three statements.
- If something is bad, this it will likely happen.
- If something is good, it will likely never happen.
- If it doesn’t matter, then it doesn’t matter.
I find the third one particularly thoughtful. Nonetheless, let us consider the outcomes. If he is not replaced, that would be bad, making it likely. Since replacing him would be good, that is farfetched. On the other hand, none of it really matters because it doesn’t matter. One man, no matter how good he is will ever save that state. If you notice the makeup of the assembly, no governor is going to fix that mess, at least for the next 2 or 3 decades.
Therefore, in this case, I select choice three as the most applicable. All the work and effort doesn’t matter. I consider it sad. I used to live in California, when Reagan was governor. That was before the dummycrats took it over. Now it would appear that it is getting so bad that everyone is leaving, even the liberals.
