California Governor Jerry Brown signaled today that the people of California would not take a Trump Presidency lightly.
The Sacramento Bee has the story:
“If Trump were ever elected, we’d have to build a wall around California to defend ourselves from the rest of this country,” Brown told labor organizers at a dinner in Sacramento. “By the way that is a joke. We don’t like walls, we like bridges.”
Brown, the Democratic governor of a liberal border state, has signed legislation granting driver’s licenses to undocumented immigrants and allowing undocumented immigrant college students to receive public financial aid. Like many Democrats, he has pushed Washington unsuccessfully for an overhaul of the nation’s immigration system.
Reminding us of the fate of a former, conservative aggressor, Brown also offered what sounds a preemptive warning, aimed directly at what Trump fears most, “And people who attack California, they do become anonymous and forgotten. Rightfully so.”

If your office works at all, it uses Microsoft Office. Those icons for Word, PowerPoint, and Outlook are as familiar around some workplaces as the coffee machine. So familiar, in fact, that they get taken for granted – and rarely used to their full potential. Whether you need a crash course in the essential tools […]
