I’m a California Nanny State prisoner. I yearn to break free to what remains of the land of the free but family obligations keep me moored to a one party progressive state whose signature achievements are oppressive taxation, business killing regulation coupled with massive immigration of a welfare dependent class. As Victor Davis Hanson has pointed out, the cherry on top are virtue signaling utopian projects such as the bullet train to nowhere and feel good environmental policies and over-regulation of public utilities which have led to the worst wildfires in the State’s history and the “necessity” of shutting off the power to large segments of the population during high winds as an Orwellian third-world solution to government waste and mismanagement.
So. I’m stuck here. One way I try to cope with it is humor. Of course, in today’s politically correct culture, even humor is becoming verboten under the influence of the Lefto-Natzis. That is especially true in the media and entertainment industry which is dominated and controlled by the left.
Awhile back I was encouraged by the overwhelmingly positive response of the right wing low brow unwashed Cretans who read All News Pipeline to my article published on ANP a few years back about a nightmare a business owner/émigré from Kansas has about the rules and regulations in his adopted state of California.
So I decided to bring my story to the silver screen. Well, “silver screen” is a bit of an exaggeration. My forte is not only “independent” but also low budget film making. A more apt description would be that I decided to bring my short film as a thrust into the culture war by way of the internet and your computer screens.
My film ends with an ironic twist underlined by the classic song, “California Here I Come” playing during the end titles.
Though I filmed Nightmare in Paradise this past October, I held it for release until now because the classic song “California Here I Come”, written by Joseph Meyers and Buddy DeSylva in 1924, just come into the public domain this January. Waiting two months for release saved me the cost of having to purchase the composition rights.
Also it gave me an opportunity to record our own performance of “California Here I Come” when Lloyd Marcus came out to my home during our filming of his current music video, Trump Train 2020.
In mid-January Lloyd Marcus and seven of his fellow Deplorable Chorus members flew out to my neck of the woods so we could finish the studio shoot of the soon to be release music video. On January 11th, after our studio shoot, I had Lloyd and his fellow Chorus members over to the house for dinner and they graciously agreed to belt out a few bars of “California Here I Come.” Another friend and acquaintance, Lance Roettger, did the musical score and also joined in the chorus so that we could finish up Nightmare in Paradise and release it on January 31st. Lloyd published an excellent article in American Thinker not only about his experience coming out to California but most importantly, about the issues which pertain to the culture and political war we are currently engaged in. As Lloyd stated in part in his American Thinker article:
California is a state that seeks to remove all parental rights and ban homeschooling, forcing parents to surrender their children for LGBT, socialist/progressive, and anti-American indoctrination. This is a state that coddles illegal aliens, showering them with freebies unavailable to legal residents, while legal residents struggle to survive. This is a state that has ushered in the resurgence of medieval diseases because vagrants are allowed to set up tent cities and defecate on the streets. Criminals who steal under a thousand dollars’ worth of products are not charged.
If Bloomberg or any of his fellow wacko Democrats is elected president, Americans will immediately fall backward, resuming the economic, cultural, and world leadership decline of the Obama years. …
Yes, I second Lloyd’s opinion. We need to keep both our sense of humor and our focus on victory in 2020. Gold help us if Trump is not re-elected and California becomes the model and the norm for the rest of the Country!
