My Top 3 Priorities

  • RE LEGALIZE HEMP AND MARIJUANA. The way they were before late December 1937. Let the farmers grow Hemp as they used to for generations. Let the people ingest marijuana for medicine or pleasure.
  • Get our water back !! Turn pumps back on to stop trillions of gallons of fresh water from being dumped into the SAN FRANCISCO BAY! !
  • Remove conflicting regulations against biodigesters.

Questions & Answers

Questions from The League of Women Voters of California Education Fund and California Counts, a public media collaboration. (4)

Climate changes and the continuing drought worry many in California. What new strategies do you believe would ensure that California is able to both satisfy its water needs and protect the environment? Please be specific. 
Answer from Janice Marlae Bonser:

Saving the Delta Smelt  by throwing it's water away has Not  worked.  Trillions of fresh  water being dumped into the SAN FRANCISCO BAY hurts all of us ! Especially the fish the wild life and the farmers.  Turn the pumps back on. Give the water back to the fish and the farmers. 

Many Californians are concerned about the influence of money in politics. What can the state legislature do to ensure that decision-making by elected officials is not swayed by moneyed interests at the expense of constituents?
Answer from Janice Marlae Bonser:

The power for this is in the hands of the voters. Voters are the only ones who can change the status quo. 

There are a variety of proposals to raise California's minimum wage. Many of these proposals face opposition from business groups who are concerned that they would kill jobs. Do you support increasing the minimum wage in California?  In your answer please explain your position on the relationship between wages and jobs with specific reference to the situation in your district. 
Answer from Janice Marlae Bonser:

No. i don't support raising the minimum wage. It sounds good  but when the minimum wage goes up, so do all the prices. We have more money but every thing costs more too. Small business owners suffer. Some small business goes out of business.  Many lose jobs.

What are your top three fiscal priorities, recognizing the need to balance the state’s income with its spending?
Answer from Janice Marlae Bonser:

NO MORE TAXES! ! This will stimulate the economy and create jobs. Get our FRESH WATER BACK. Turn the pumps back on to water the Delta Smelt and half a million acres of farm land in the San Juaquin valley. . Talk about more jobs! ! Now include lower food prices. RE legalize marijuana and hemp. Hemp called the, " New Billion Dollar Crop " by Popular Mechanics and the, " Most Profitable Crop that can be Grown " by Mechanical Engineering.  Both espousing HEMP and reporting  a machine that had just been invented that could harvest hemp. Tell Phillip Morris to get his butts off the ground.  Balance the budget.

Sovereign on to ourselves.


To be truly free. Just to allow ourselves to keep all of our earnings, will inspire us to earn and trade more, Respect each other. Bring World PEACE! This is what the, "Bill of Rights", is all about.

                             We deserve to use the water we paid for, to water the half a million acres of farm land which is 1/3 of  the San Juaquin valley that are currently dry. If this was on the news Californians would be furious. We deserve to hear the news that affects us. Most people are not informed about the trillions of gallons of FRESH water being dumped in the SAN FRANCISCO BAY!!!!                                             We deserve to use Cannabis in all of it's forms. Hemp for industrial uses to  compete with petroleum and timber AND hemp seeds,  as nutritious food, etc. Etc. ETC...AND Marijuana to ingest for medicine and recreation. We deserve to know American history of hemp and that Columbus used hemp for the sails and rigging for the Nina, the Pinta and the Santa Maria.                                                                  We deserve to each have a  biodigester to cut our energy bill, cut our water bill, cut our garbage bill, our fertilizer bill, food bill, get rid of the flies, get rid of  e-coli, salmonella, bad smells, etc, etc.       A biodigester is like a garbage can that stays clean and never needs to be emptied. Most people have never heard of this before,  even though the technology for biodigesters is more than 200 years old.                                   We deserve to understand the SCIENCE OF CHEMURGY. So our plastics that are choking us and our Earth to death will biodegrade instead.  All hail, George Washington Carver, the father of chemurgy.    This technology is about 100 years old.                                                       We deserve to be Sovereign on to ourselves. We deserve to be truly free.     I see a bright future for all of us but only when we are TRULY FREE. 

Our food should taste better.


It all has to do with, S.O.F... Sterilized Organic Fertilizer.  A clear liquid with no smell  S.O.F. is just one product that comes from  biodigesters Also  Biodigesters sterilize and clean organics. Biodigesters make S.O.F...

S.O.F.  from biodigesters is a clear liquid with no smell. No matter how smelly and dark the organic matter going into the biodigester,  it's clear liquid with no smell comming out as, S.O.F... S.O.F  easily transportable.  S.O.F. Crops fertilized with S.O.F. grow more larger and they taste better than crops fertilized with petrochemical fertilizers. . S.O. F. is the superior fertilizer. S.O.F. is Sterilized Organic Fertilizer. S.O.F. will make our food taste better. By the way biodigesters also provides, fuel, cellulose, water and prevents  green house gases especially natural gas or  methane from entering the atmosphere. So it's  important to me that we remove conflicting regulations against biodigesters. Ty.

Private Property and Trade


The more private property we have the more we have to trade  The more we trade, the more we interact the more private property we make. 

The tragedy of Commons.  Is that if nobody owns something the resources are depleted. Sometimes in school they teach this. Everyone gets as many pieces of candy from a  bag. Every one can have as many pieces of candy they want. First  prize for having the most pieces of candy is $20. What happens to all the  candy? Say now the candy is fish in the ocean. When there's no reason not to over fish. When there's no reason for respect, the resource is depleted. Private property respects and cultivates resources. Private property cultivates respect.
