THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CALIFORNIA - This site is dedicated to exposing the continuing Marxist Revolution in California and the all around massive stupidity of Socialists, Luddites, Communists, Fellow Travelers and of Liberalism in all of its ugly forms.

"It was a splendid population - for all the slow, sleepy, sluggish-brained sloths stayed at home - you never find that sort of people among pioneers - you cannot build pioneers out of that sort of material. It was that population that gave to California a name for getting up astounding enterprises and rushing them through with a magnificent dash and daring and a recklessness of cost or consequences, which she bears unto this day - and when she projects a new surprise the grave world smiles as usual and says, "Well, that is California all over."

Actor Rails Against Difficulty of Opening a Small Business in California

A Small Business fights the poor economy and Big Government

Longtime actor and entrepreneur Joseph C. Phillips, a man you might recognize from “The Cosby Show” or “General Hospital,” guest hosted the Glenn Beck Program Thursday night, where he discussed “the real” American dream and the difficulties of starting a small business in today’s economy — particularly in California.
The “unapologetic Christian and conservative” recently opened a restaurant called Daddy J’s Wingshack, so he has first-hand insight on the subject.

Given that small businesses represent the quest for the American dream, one might imagine that our governments, local and federal, would support and encourage those attempting to open small businesses. Well — one would be wrong, at least if you live in California,” he began.

“When we opened our doors a year and a half ago we were immediately beset by bureaucrats walking in carrying mountains of documents for us to read, lengthy rules, stuff for us to sign obligating us to this tax and that tax, writing check after check after check…” he continued.
Phillips said he has no problem with certain government regulations — he likes to know, for instance, that the health inspector has certified that an establishment is fit for service — but there is far more to deal with than the health inspector in today’s industry.
“My problem with bureaucrats is…the rules and guidelines and statutes that are enforced are often a matter of who you’re talking to — whether they stayed up too late the night before, whether they got some lovin’ from their spouse or their loved one, and quite frankly, whether or not they like the way you look!” he said. “The codes [are] written so that oftentimes they conflict with one another. You go down to the Health Department, the code says one thing, then you go down to the building safety department, the code says something completely different.”

All of which leads to a state of perpetual insecurity, he said, since everyone knows it’s impossible to be in a state of 100% compliance.
“If some bureaucrat wants to jam you up — if some guy who’s driving a city car, who’s never risked anything in his life, never built anything — if he wants to jam you up, wants to flex a little bit, you’re going to get jammed up,” he said. “And in the same way, if some inspector decides you look cool and wants to cut you some slack, you get to skate.”
As an example of just one of the many taxes and regulations he has do deal with, Phillips said the county of Los Angeles sends him a county assessment bill every year, which is “a tax on everything in the store” that he owns, from the friers to the chairs.
“Didn’t I already pay tax on all this stuff when I purchased it originally?” he asked, predicting the audience’s question. “The answer is yes. However, now I must pay a tax on those same items, an assessment, and that assessment is paid in perpetuity.”
And if that’s not enough, Phillips added that the county “assess the items as if they were new,” regardless of whether the refrigerator is eight years old or whether he bought the frier used.
“If my restaurant burned down my insurance company wouldn’t reimburse me at that rate,” he noted.  “If I tried to sell it on the open market not one person would pay that price…But what does that have to do with the county of Los Angeles? The county assess me at that rate every every single year.” 
“Welcome to entrepreneurship,” he said.

California Democrats vote to kill more babies

Please don't kill me.
Why are Democrats obsessed with killing (aborting)
helpless children?

The State Senate of California's People's Republic on Monday approved legislation that would broaden the number of abortion providers.  Translation  -  more baby killers.

Democrats can't use their standard "Think of the Children" line, because in this case they want to kill the children.  So they switched to "Think of the women."  Of course, if you abort the female babies then in time you won't be able to think of the women.  There won't be any.

The 25-11 vote, with only Democrats in support, sends the measure back to the Assembly to approve amendments before it goes to fruitcake Comrade Governor Jerry Brown.
The bill would allow a nurse practitioner, certified nurse-midwife or physician assistant who completes specialized training to provide a common abortion procedure during the first trimester of pregnancy reports the San Diego Union Tribune.

Assemblywoman Toni Atkins, a San Diego Democrat carrying the measure, said many women must travel great distances or go without early pregnancy care because of the limited number of physicians who perform abortions.
“We need accessibility throughout the state — not just in urban centers,” Atkins said in an interview after the Senate vote.
Senate Republicans, however, say women already have access to abortion providers and that, by allowing professionals other than licensed physicians and surgeons to conduct the procedure, the measure could lead to more harm.
“The argument for abortions is we have got to get it out of the alleys. No more coat hangers. We need safe abortions for women. No woman should lose their life over this,” said Sen. Joel Anderson, R-La Mesa.
But “this bill puts women’s lives at risk,” he said.
Sen. Jim Nielsen, R-Gerber, called the bill “a dangerous direction.”
“I would urge caution — deep and profound thought and soul-searching. It is no light matter. Abortion is a serious medical procedure with vast complications,” he said.

Sen. Ted Gaines, R-El Dorado Hills, said he represents 11 counties, most of which are rural. “There is not an issue of access for an abortion to be performed by a doctor anywhere in my rural in my district,” he said.
That drew a rebuke from Sen. Noreen Evans, D-Santa Rosa, who represents rural north coast counties. “The women in those counties are entitled to access to the health care they need. Many women will require this procedure because their health is threatened,” she said.
Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson, D-Santa Barbara, said it is important for women to be able to obtain an abortion as early in a pregnancy as possible. With fewer providers, some in remote areas may have to wait longer, thus increasing complications, she said.
“This is not a complicated procedure in its earliest stages. It becomes more problematic the longer it is delayed. It is frequently delayed because women do not have access,” she said.

COMMUNISM - Calif. city to seize private property

Socialist Mayor Gayle McLaughlin raises the flag over what is left of Richmond, California.

The March of Communism
Richmond tries to invoke its power of imminent domain and
seize home mortgages and re-distribute that wealth
to government approved voters.

The People's Republic of California   -   Marxist Californians are on the march looking to seize the money, the private property, of banks and private individual lenders and re-distribute that wealth to voter home owners. Emphasis on the VOTER part please.

When you rob Peter and give the money to Paul, you will always get Paul's vote.

The Green Party Mayor of Democrat dominated Richmond, Calif., and a gaggle of activists and homeowners showed up at the Wells Fargo Bank headquarters in downtown San Francisco this month, they were on a mission to speak with the bank's chief executive.

They wanted the bank to drop a lawsuit aimed at stopping Richmond's first-in-the-nation plan to use the government's constitutional power of eminent domain to "seize" hundreds of mortgages from Wells Fargo and other financial institutions reports the San Francisco Chronicle.
As Mayor Gayle McLaughlin and the plan's backers approached the bank building, security guards locked the doors. After a bank official told her there would be no meeting then and that someone would call her later, she grabbed a bullhorn.

"I am absolutely not backing down," McLaughlin said, as curious tourists and lunching office workers milled about.
Wells Fargo, three other banks and even the Federal Housing Finance Agency think otherwise.
The banks have filed two lawsuits alleging that the plan is an illegal abuse of eminent domain, which allows governments to seize private property for public use — like a house in the path of a new highway or a piece of land needed for a new park.
The banks argue the plan would "severely disrupt the United States mortgage industry" because many other cities would likely adopt the same program to help homeowners who owe more on their mortgages than their houses are worth.
So far, Richmond has sent out more than 600 offers, but has not yet begun any eminent domain proceedings. Newark, N.J., North Las Vegas, Nev., El Monte, Calif., and Seattle are considering similar plans, according to Wells Fargo's lawsuit reports the San Francisco Chronicle.
McLaughlin said cities are considering the program because they are desperate. Nearly half the mortgages in Richmond, for example, are "underwater," the owner owes more than the house is worth.
Richmond, working with San Francisco-based Mortgage Resolution Partners, offers $150,000 to buy a $300,000 bank loan on a house that is now worth $200,000 and is in danger of foreclosure.
If the bank refuses to sell the loan to Richmond, then the city invokes its power of imminent domain and seizes the mortgage. It would then offer the bank a fair market value for the home.
Mortgage Resolution Partners, the company partnering with the city, puts up the money and had promised to pay all Richmond's legal costs. City officials have not said how many homes they hope to refinance through eminent domain.

This Green is Pure Red.
Gayle McLaughlin, the Green Party Mayor of Richmond, is quoting Karl Marx.  Working with the Democrat city council she wants to use city power (for example) to confiscate $300,000 home mortgages from banks and pay them only $150,000 for their home loans.
Naturally the grateful home owners with the "magically" lower house payment reward the liar, stealing politicians with their votes in the next election.

McLaughlin is a Green Party candidate who beat back opposition from the city's police and fire unions to win a second term in 2010.
She said she fears homeowners will begin to abandon their homes, leading to blighted neighborhoods and the draining of public coffers to the point of municipal bankruptcy experienced by Stockton, Calif., and Detroit.
"The city is stepping in where Wall Street and where the federal government have been unable or unwilling to do so," she said.

Federal regulators said eminent domain isn't the answer. The Federal Housing Finance Agency said plans to seize loans "present a clear threat to the safe and sound operations Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the Federal Home Loan Banks."
Tim Cameron, a Washington, D.C., lobbyist with the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association, said there is more at play than a single person's underwater loan.
Cameron said pension funds, banks and other groups that made loans in Richmond stand to lose millions of dollars if the city is allowed to use eminent domain to force lenders into accepting less than the original terms of the loan.
He also predicted that cities using eminent domain will make lenders wary of doing business there.
"There's a domino effect in play here," he said.

Democrats want non-citizens to judge Americans in court

"We the jury find the American guilty."
 The Inmates Are Running the Asylum
Idiot leftist legislators hate their country so much they want American citizens to be judged by citizens of foreign nations.

The People's Republic of California  -  The once Golden State would become the first state to allow non-citizens who are in the country legally to serve as jurors under a bill that cleared the Assembly on Thursday and heads to Gov. Jerry Brown's desk.

If signed into law, the legislation would make immigrants who are legal permanent residents eligible for jury duty.

It would not change other requirements for jurors, such as being at least 18 years old and having English proficiency. They also must live in the county making the summons reports the Associated Press.

Nutcase Leftist Assemblyman Bob Wieckowski, D-Fremont, said AB1401 would help California widen the pool of prospective jurors and help integrate immigrants into their community. Immigrants already can serve in other roles in the courts system, including working as judges, he said.

"Immigrants are our friends, immigrants are our neighbors, immigrants are our co-workers and immigrants are our family members," Wieckowski said. "They are part of the fabric of our community."

The Assembly passed AB1401 on Thursday on a largely party-line vote of 41-26. Three Democrats -Assemblymen Ken Cooley of Rancho Cordova, Adam Gray of Merced and Rudy Salas of Bakersfield - joined Republicans in opposing the measure.

Assemblyman Rocky Chavez, R-Oceanside, said during his floor comments that he does not see a shortage of potential jurors. He also said those accused of a crime have a right to a jury of peers who fully understand the country's laws and culture.

"I think that understanding only comes when an individual openly takes an oath to become a citizen of the country in which they live," Chavez said.
Welcome to the new California jury pool
You are to be judged by a jury of yours "peers".
"I vote the American guilty."

"We the jury find the American guilty."
"Guilty.  Guilty.  Guilty."
"What's a jury?"

"Da, the Americanski is guilty."

Faced with 8.9% unemployment Sacramento eased restrictions on superstores

"The problem with socialism is that you eventually run
out of other people's money."
Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher

With unemployment increasing in California even the Left-wing loons in Sacramento have moved to help business grow, create jobs and increase taxes to the treasury.

The Democrat run Sacramento City Council eased the city's restrictions of big-box superstores Tuesday night following a contentious two-hour debate that pitted some of the region's top business interests against influential labor leaders.

By a 6-2 vote, the council erased most of a 2006 ordinance that required superstore chains to conduct wage and benefit studies of nearby businesses before being permitted to build new facilities.

Complex economic impact studies will also be waived for stores seeking to expand, or open in "food deserts" or some major planned developments reports the Sacramento Bee.

In Sacramento, unemployment rose to 8.9 percent from 8.4 percent in June reports the Fresno Bee.

The City Council chambers were packed for the hearing, with those who opposed easing the restrictions outnumbering those who advocated for easing the restrictions by a 2-1 margin.

Labor leaders, small business representatives and neighborhood activists urged the council to keep the 2006 ordinance in place. Many of those speakers were greeted with applause by members of the audience after speaking.

Building trades group and business organizations led the push to ease the restrictions.

Revenge Porn - Calif. to criminalized private disputes

Revenge Porn
Idiotic Republicans and Democrats join together to
criminalize private romantic quarrels

Jail time for so-called "revenge porn".  I smell hack politicians pandering for votes.

The hot button phony issue of the day is poor downtrodden women . . . women who just happen to vote. 

Revenge porn could apply to either sex as well as lesbians and gays, but the hacks are targeting women to get votes.  The politicians want you to ignore the fact the photos were posed for voluntarily.  Ignore that.  Put everyone in jail.

People fall in love and sometimes break up.  Bad breakups can produce all kinds of painful and unhealthy fallout: severing relationships with friends, dividing your mingled possessions, seeking solace in alcohol, putting nude pictures and videos of your ex on the Internet.

Commonly referred to as "revenge porn," the practice of posting or disseminating lascivious images and footage without someone's consent has captured politician's vote pandering imagination and the California Senate has passed a bill penalizing those involved.

The legislation, authored by Sen. Anthony Cannella, R-Ceres, and backed by organizations like the California Partnership to End Domestic Violence and the California Sheriffs' Association, makes revenge porn a misdemeanor punishable by a fine or jail time.

Yeah, let's put people in prison for posting photos that the other party voluntarily posed for.

Cannella floated Senate Bill 255 after being approached by a constituent dismayed that an ex had shared photos that "were intimate in nature," reports the Sacramento Bee.

"That was the initial exposure," Cannella said (no pun intended).

In looking for a way to attract votes Cannella claims he did some research and discovered that not only is cyber revenge more widespread than he realized, it's also not illegal. Someone whose privacy has been violated can seek redress in civil court, but Cannella wants them in jail.

The pandering hacks look down on women and think females are weak and helpless and cannot go to civil court.  So let's jump up a private dispute to the criminal level and have government prosecutors put people in jail for private quarrels.

A single senator voted against the bill. Sen. Leland Yee, D-San Francisco, said he rejected the measure -- also opposed by the American Civil Liberties Union -- because he feared it would undermine First Amendment freedoms.

"While I appreciate the intent of this legislation, I feel it was too broadly drawn and could potentially be used inappropriately to censor free speech," Yee said in a statement.

Post a Photo - Go to Jail
Moron political hacks from both parties want to put men, women, lesbians and gays in prison for posting romantic or sexy photos of their ex on the Internet.  Never mind that the other party voluntarily posed for those photos. 
Private disputes are a matter for the civil courts. But politicians want to look powerful and tough so they want to put people in jail.

California Unemployment Jumps Up to 8.7%

Welcome to Democrat Socialism
The government tries hard to cover up the massive increase in poverty with underemployment and people just giving up.

Don't you just love the policies of Democratic Socialism?
  • Massive tax increases on job creators.
  • Most of the job "growth" being in low paying businesses.
  • Workers forced by Socialist Obamacare policies to become part time and thus poorer.
  • Government regulations preventing job growth in high paying industries like oil.
  • The legalization and importation of millions of new workers to compete directly with American citizens for jobs.
  • Huge increases in welfare and food stamps.

Unemployment increased in California and Sacramento last month, state officials said today.

The statewide unemployment rate jumped two-tenths of a percent, to 8.7 percent, even though employers added 38,100 jobs during July.

In Sacramento, unemployment rose to 8.9 percent from 8.4 percent in June reports the Fresno Bee.

The region lost 13,500 jobs. The biggest cutback was in local government, 10,900 jobs, which was described as a seasonal event.

Private education also shed 700 jobs.

There were some quirks in the data: Construction lost 500 jobs despite evidence that that housing market is picking up momentum.
Assemblywoman Diane Harkey, a Republican from Dana Point who expects to run for the state Board of Equalization next year, added a note of caution.

Not only did the unemployment rate increase, but state tax revenues fell $266 million below the state Department of Finance's forecast for July, the first month of the fiscal year. Democrats who control the state Legislature have been lobbying to increase spending on social programs, but Harkey supported the conservative approach adopted by Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown, reports KPCC.
She said consumers and business owners may be reacting to temporary income and sales tax increases sought by Brown and approved by voters last year, and to uncertainty over the looming potential costs of the federal Affordable Care Act.

"Whenever you make huge changes, that can affect the bottom line," said Harkey, vice chairwoman of the Assembly Appropriations Committee. "You're going to cut back on employing people and do with what you have. I think all of these things are starting to hit home."

The Classics are Best - Original Obamaphone Lady
Socialism - Free shit for everyone.  Don't worry, some
other guy somewhere will pay the bill.

Unemployment Varies Significantly Throughout California

Jerry Brown's Transvestite attack on helpless children

The Insane are running the Asylum
Nutcase Democrats want to subject helpless children
to insane social re-engineering.

Fruitcake California Governor Jerry Brown has signed into law an insane bill guaranteeing the rights of transgender students to use the bathroom and join the team of their choice.

I can see it now.  A six foot, hairy, 180 pound "transvestite" male playing on female high school sports team and allowed to use the girl's locker room.  It is now against the law to oppose it.

Insane "advocates" praised Brown's action as an important victory "for a whole movement," the Sacramento Bee reported Tuesday.

While state law already protected transgender students from discrimination, the bill's sponsor, nutcase Democratic Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, said the bill clarifies students can't be barred from settings that are uniquely single sex, such as a men's basketball team or a women's locker room reports UPI News.

"The governor's signature represents an important victory, not just for my bill, but for a whole movement for the rights of transgender people," Ammiano said in a statement.

He noted in hearings on the bill, children testified passage of the law would mean "they no longer must hide who they are, nor be treated as someone other than who they are."

Republican Assemblyman Curt Hagman said he was "very disappointed" by Brown's signing of the bill, which had passed on a party-line vote.

Hagman charged the law "greatly compromised the privacy and rights of students throughout California."

Opponents of the measure had charged the bill would undermine parental choice and give prankster students a titillating peak inside locker rooms and bathrooms of the opposite sex.

Cindy Sheehan runs for Governor & the corruption of California elections

The Great Liars & Tax Increasers
Dimbulb GOP Lt. Governor Abel Maldonado and his Sith Master Arnold.

Abel Maldonado Just Screwed Himself
And it could not happen to a bigger prick.

Dipshit Abel Maldonado's corrupt deal with the Democrats to ban small political parties from general election ballots will keep Cindy Sheehan out of the running and dooms Maldonado's race for Governor before it starts.

Antiwar activist Cindy Sheehan plans to run next year for California governor, according to state Peace and Freedom Party officials.

Sheehan won the endorsement of the party's state central committee and is expected to announce her candidacy or the formation of an exploratory committee "probably in a couple of weeks," C.T. Weber, a member of the state party's executive committee.

A statement on a Peace and Freedom Party website quoted Sheehan as saying she wants to run for governor "primarily because I believe that California should be leading the nation in peace, education, health care, sustainable/renewable energy and democracy," reports the Sacramento Bee.

Sheehan, 56, gained notoriety for protesting outside President George W. Bush's Texas ranch after her son, Casey, was killed in Iraq in 2004. She made a failed bid for vice president last year alongside Roseanne Barr as the Peace and Freedom Party's candidates.

Running as an independent against U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi in 2008, Sheehan came in second with about 16 percent of the vote, finishing ahead of the Republican in the race.

Her gubernatorial prospects may be long. The incumbent, Democrat Jerry Brown, has raised more than $10 million for his re-election campaign. The Peace and Freedom Party's last gubernatorial candidate, Carlos Alvarez, received just less than 1 percent of the vote in 2010.

Because of her notoriety, Sheehan should do better than that, Weber said. Asked if he thought she has a chance of defeating Brown, he said, "I would really appreciate it if she did."

Bi-Partisan Corruption
Antiwar activist Cindy Sheehan plans to run next year for California Governor.
But both the Democrats and the GOP worked together to make sure that all smaller political parties and independents would be effectively banned from all future November ballots.  You are living in a fantasy world if you believe we live in a democracy.
Sheehan racked up 46,118 votes in her race against Nancy Pelosi (below).  The last thing Democrats want is for a prominent Leftist to appear on the November ballot and draw votes away from Jerry Brown.
Republicans feel the same way about challenges from the Right.  So they worked with Democrats to make sure that only the top two primary vote getters appear in November.  By "magic" those top two candidates are 99% Democrats and Republican.

Insanity - $558,625 in pay for new Santa Ana city manager

 "Corruptus in Extremis"
$550,625 in pay for a city manager.  Post the job
for $195,000 and watch 5,000 people apply.

There are two possible reasons to overpay a key government worker:

  1. The city council is made up of fucking idiots.  or
  2. It is hush money (like the corrupt, overpaid city of Bell employees) to make sure the city manager does not make waves and allows the powers that be a free hand with the city treasury.

Santa Ana has hired away Phoenix's city manager and has agreed to an annual salary and benefits package of more than half a million dollars, instantly making him one of the highest paid city employees in California.

David Cavazos, a longtime Phoenix employee who rose through the ranks from intern to city manager during his 26-year tenure, would have a total compensation package of $558,625 in his first year in Santa Ana.

Only the city manager in tiny Indian Wells is listed as having a higher salary and benefits package at $677,172, according to the state controller's office, which most recently released data for 2011. That paycheck included a severance payout to the city manager, who was stepping down reports the Los Angeles Times.

Here is what stinks.  In Santa Ana (population 330,000), Cavazos will earn $558,625.  As the chief executive in Phoenix, which has a population of 1.47 million, his base salary was $317,000.  Vastly more money for a much, much smaller city.

With benefits, the city expects to pay Cavazos $558,625 in the first year of his contract, with the figure dropping to $515,000 in his second and third year, according to a report prepared for the City Council.

Among the benefits Cavazos will receive are $36,000 for housing in the first year and $24,000 per year after that. In addition, he will receive $7,500 in moving expenses, several sick and vacation days, and insurance benefits.

Phoenix officials gave Cavazos a $78,000 pay raise late last year, boosting his base salary to $315,000. The raise sparked controversy there.

Bullshit Alert  -  "I'm not leaving for the money. I'm not going there for the money. Just like I came here for an opportunity, I'm going to Santa Ana for an opportunity."

I can smell that line of shit right through my computer.

Overpaid Hack
David Cavazos will receive a total compensation package
of $558,625 in his first year in Santa Ana compared
to $317,000 for the larger city of Phoenix where
he worked for 26 years.

Jerry Brown Rapes the Sacramento Delta - Again

"Corruptus in Extremis"
A Corrupt new report from Jerry Brown's own agency 
praises Brown's Delta twin tunnels plan.

As a John Muir Conservative Conservationist I am royally pissed off at the massive bipartisan support for Jerry Brown's vicious rape of the California Delta.

A corrupt report released Monday says building massive tunnels in the Delta to move water to Southern California farms and homes would create jobs.

SHOCK - A report written by Jerry Brown's own agency praises the wisdom of Jerry Brown.  Fuck Brown.  This grossly overpriced tunnel is a massive payoff to the labor unions and business interests that finance campaigns for both parties in California.  That is one reason the GOP is silent or supportive.

The report, mostly favorable to the idea of building the twin tunnels, was released by the California Natural Resources Agency, which is part of Gov. Jerry Brown's administration.
Opponents of the plan remained unconvinced Monday reports KCRA News.
"The large, subsidized, corporate water interests, they would get most of the water," said Bob Wright, an attorney with Friends of the River, an organization that has consistently spoken against the plan. "So, there would be subsidies all over the place here, taxpayers getting the shaft, urban and suburban ratepayers in Southern California getting the shaft."

Brown's Corruption
Governor Moonbeam tried to rape the Delta in 1982 but was defeated by the voters.  Today he is doing a vicious "back door" rape where local agencies finance the tunnels and the voters have no say what so ever. . . . but the voters get to pay the bill through higher water rates.

Meanwhile the Common People dare to speak up

Several dozen Discovery Bay and San Joaquin County residents are protesting the Bay Area Delta Conservation Plan.
Many said they fear the twin tunnels project would devastate the Delta.
It’s Gov. Jerry Brown's plan to build two giant water tunnels that would send water from the Delta to Southern California.

"If the tunnels go on, we won't have the kind of environment here we live, swim and play in," Discovery Bay resident Amanda Dove said.

The project would have devastating effects on the community of 14,000, Dove added.
"The water would be sludgy -- and a concern is salt water from the Bay would get in here and destroy our habitat," Dove said.
So, dozens of people chartered a bus to attend the meeting of the Bay Delta Conservation Plan in Sacramento.
"We are getting on (a) bus because this is the only way to save the Delta and our community. We have to stop the tunnels," said Jan McCleery, from the California Delta Alliance.
"The farmers here need fresh water for irrigation, and if we get salt water, it will ruin the crops," Discovery Bay resident Arnold Plonczak said.

Supreme Court releases 30,000 thugs from prison to attack the public

A World Gone Mad
Liberals on Supreme Court order over 30,000 thugs 
freed from prison to prey on a helpless public

Four Democrat liberals on the U.S. Supreme Court were joined by two "Conservative" Republicans and refused Friday to let California delay the release of thousands of inmates from state prisons to relieve crowding.

In an act of total insanity the Court ignored the 10th Amendment of the Bill of Rights and ordered the release into the public of tens of thousands of violent criminals.

In June, a lower court ordered California to release about 10,000 inmates — nearly 8 percent of all state prisoners — by the end of the year to improve to improve medical and mental health treatment. Gov. Jerry Brown last month asked the Supreme Court to delay the order, arguing that it would jeopardize public safety.

Brown also blasted the decision Friday, saying, "California must now release upon the public nearly 10,000 inmates convicted of serious crimes, about 1,000 for every city larger than Santa Ana," reports US News NBC.

The legal issue was Brown's request for a stay of a ruling by a three-judge panel of the U.S. District Court for Northern California ordering the state to release about 9,600 inmates in the short term as part of larger proceedings requiring it to reduce its prison population by about 30,000.

The panel's demands, Brown has argued repeatedly, create a serious public safety threat. The state had asked the high court to put the panel's order on hold while an appeal goes forward.

But the Supreme Court was not persuaded. The majority denied Brown's request for a stay without comment.

Justice Antonin Scalia wrote a sharply worded dissent, which Justice Clarence Thomas joined. Justice Samuel Alito also dissented, but he did not join Scalia.

Scalia wrote that he does not believe the federal courts have the authority to order California to remove thousands of inmates from its prison system.

"California must now release upon the public nearly 10,000 inmates convicted of serious crimes — about 1,000 for every city larger than Santa Ana," he wrote. The order, he wrote, goes "beyond the power of the courts."
