Can two guys dismantle California’s political quagmire from the bar of an Italian restaurant in the predominately-liberal town of Claremont? Can they survive if they do? The plot they hatch takes everyone, including Madam President, by surprise, and outrages just about everyone in America’s most left-leaning state. However, the results speak for themselves, and while their capital is rising, our heroes find the time to indulge in the newly legalized sport of sniping taggers caught in the act of spraying graffiti. But there is always trouble in paradise and the governor’s past catches up with him in the form of an ultra-sexy young blond with a habit of causing trouble as well as getting into it. Trouble, that is, with the media, the entrenched Democratic legislature and the radical Islamists at the mosque down the street. It would have been only a minor indiscretion if the tabloids hadn’t been taking videos with a drone. Despite the scandal, with the California National Guard as his personal army, the chimerical governor runs roughshod over the deep-seated dilemmas that perennially plague the Golden State. With the wave of his hand he eliminates the welfare state, the homeless problem, illegal immigration, broken schools, high-speed pursuits, traffic gridlock and the budget crisis. Come see how he does it.

Scott Skipper writes from the seclusion of his home in the foothills of Southern California where he can make cynical observations of the modern world without having to get too close to it. His satirical stories span a broad spectrum of interests. He has written about some colorful ancestors, a paranoid Nazi doctor, he has rewritten the history of the United States and México, conspired to solve all of the problems that bedevil the Golden State of California and recently revealed the terrible secret of the Roswell incident.
Skipper’s other interests include genealogy, reading, collecting wildlife photos and travel. He has traveled extensively in Latin America and is passionately interested in pre-Columbian cultures. He is never more contented, however, than when he is perched on his hilltop with a wonderful wife, some silly dogs and the local fauna.
