PERHAPS CALIFORNIA BROKER MAGAZINE WILL COME TO REALIZE THAT SUPPORTING THE RADICAL LEFT LIBERALS IS NOT WHAT AMERICA NEEDS… THEY’RE COMMUNIST BASTARDS AND SHOULD BE ELIMINATED PERMANENTLY!!!
Again, this might be amusing if we as a country hadn’t just been through an insurrection that left five people dead. It’s amazing too because professionals who purport to be Boy Scout and Girl Scout volunteers and such have sent rants with their names clearly on the email. We understand that some people are angry, but we want to warn you for your own sake and for your professional standing to be careful about what you send to anyone. In fact, unhinged communications may be something that the California Department of Insurance would want to know about. CDI encourages people who have a concern about an agent or broker licensed by the Department to contact them so that the investigations division can look into the concern. Reach out to the CDI consumer service team either online with CDI’s new chat feature, or by calling 800-927-4357. You can also submit a Request for Assistance online directly to the CDI team, which works works directly with the Department’s law enforcement team.

New Poll: Worries Increase Over Worsening Mental Stability
We’ve talked a lot about how employers are worried about mental health issues during the pandemic. A new poll suggests it’s not just employers worrying. A “Back-to-Normal Barometer” survey for the first time finds that nearly 50% of people agree that their own mental health has gotten much worse and 56% of Americans believe that over the course of the pandemic, the mental health of others that they know has gotten much worse. Rich Thau, president of Engagious, one of the three firms—along with the Sports and Leisure Research Group and ROKK Solutions—that conducted the survey said the survey results suggest we’re only beginning to grasp the emotional toll this crisis has taken on us. The survey also found that 57% agree with this statement, “As more Americans get vaccinated in 2021, I expect my mental health will be much better.” 35% strongly agree; 24% somewhat agree; 22% somewhat disagree and 19% strongly disagree.
