Where is a map of CA 2022 Congressional districts w/cities/roads

I've just spent the last half hour trying to find out which congressional district includes Lake Forest CA. Maybe I'm just not asking google the right questions, but I'm getting very frustrated with what should be a pretty simple task. Most of the maps don't have the cities or roads showing. Some are very interactive and show all kinds of details like demographics, partisan breakdowns, who is running. All well and good, but I think it should be key info to any citizen to find out what district they are located in. sheesh. Any help would probably make me feel pretty inept but greatly appreciated none-the-less.

Am I crazy to contemplate the worst case scenario?

Like for instance, when the traitor calls for a demonstration in Washington, suggesting violence, or even calling outright for violence. How will law enforcement respond, the DOJ? Will they arrest him then? When he is sitting in jail calling for more violence etc. will they need to gag him. His odious followers will then no doubt attempt some really stupid and dangerous actions.
I guess I'm just thinking that we (the DOJ) needs to prepare. I hope there are some pretty smart folks gaming this out, not only in the DOJ but the Whitehouse too. I'm not suggesting that he shouldn't be treated like the traitor he is, just that there are so many scenarios and outcomes possible and hopefully we won't be caught flat footed.

Thanks for letting me share some thoughts

Democrat Wins in Midterm Spell Trouble for Biden in '24

That is your headline, now go write the story! We have a paper to get out!

Moving forward messaging

We should be looking forward on the coronavirus and future viruses by claiming that we are beating the virus, that we are better prepared for the future, medical teams in place, testing etc, and we can manage what ever comes next.

We should frame the issue of the insurrection as an ongoing threat. We need to spell out what a threat to our democracy is in starker and more descriptive forms. Say things like "they want to overthrow the will of the people" or "they want to throw out your vote or stop you from voting".

Tell voters what you are doing to make the future better and make the democracy stronger.

I'm just sharing some of my thoughts

Sinima has it backwards

The filibuster in it's current form fosters hyper partisanship. There is no need to compromise on anything if the other side needs to get 60 votes.

A thought about the police and FBI misconduct in the Malcolm X murder case

I don't know much about this, but it makes me suspicious that FBI and police were trying to hide the real killers by engineering these convictions.

The kids are alright with masks

in Sacramento ,CA.

Purely anecdotal, but driving past the local high school letting out, all the kids had masks on. At all the bus stops where crowds of kids were waiting, all had masks on. I went a small park near by and there were a few high school kids there hanging out with friends and I was surprised to see they all had masks on.

Dear News Media

Please stop running footage of the stank in front of our white house shilling for his repugnant self. This is an obscene crime against our country and every time you show it, you are being complicit.
