Full Time Government Creates Mischief

For many reasons, I believe in a part-time legislature and a part-time Congress.  One of the reasons is that I don’t think there is enough to do for policy-makers so they find ways to occupy their time and justify their existence.  If all they did was go to the capitol to work out an annual spending plan, their year would end far too early to create mischief in the lives of every day Californians and we might forget that they are there. 

Evans v. Calderon

Liberal Senator Noreen Evans (D-Santa Rosa) attacked one of her Democrat colleagues earlier this month for saying that the attractive Chief Justice of the California Supreme Court, Tani Cantil-Sakauye, is “attractive.”  How dare he!

Evans, who likely resents the fact that the term isn’t frequently applied to her, took time that I guess I would expect is better applied to solving our enormous budget deficit to pen a nastygram to Assemblyman Charles Calderon (D-Whittier) demanding an apology and that Justice Cantil-Sakauye “be taken seriously and not spoken about in such a dismissive and frivolous manner.”

Sen. Evans is being frivolous with her time and dismissive of the taxpayers’ money.

Geronimo v. Children

In the wake of the killing of Osama Bin Ladin, the Senate Indian Affairs Committee announced a hearing that will examine the racist decision to use the code name “Geronimo” during the operation.  According to the committee’s chief counsel, Loretta Tuell, the decision could have a “devastating” impact on our “Native and non-Native children.”

I believe the proper spelling of her name is T-O-O-L.

Flat v. Fitted

As off-base as those examples are, you really have to wonder why Sen. Kevin de Leon (D-Los Angeles) would embarrass himself by introducing legislation that would mandate California hotels and motels use of fitted sheets rather than flat sheets.  Seems the unions, specifically, UNITE HERE, believe that California housekeepers’ oppression, that is the struggle to put flat sheets on a mattress, requires a government intervention.  Free at last, free at last, thank God almighty, free at last.

    Considering most Californians are victims of the public school system their State level voting record for kooks, radicals, communists, bleeding heart liberals, jack booted conservatives is not all that bad…

    The real action is in SF, LA, SD where poltical fiefdoms are on the verge of becoming “BK UTOPIAS”.
