Not that there’s anything wrong with that, Part Deux

05 Aug

Here’s something to ponder regarding the Perry vs Schwarzenegger decision.

The people of California voted for Prop 8 in a vote that wasn’t a nailbiter, and the winning side was a racial coalition that did in fact look like America.  No one can blame money for this one – opponents actually outspent proponents of Prop 8 by nearly $4 million.

But the people of California’s elected government, in the person of the Governator, refused to defend Prop 8 once it came up for court challenge.

And the unelected judge overturned Prop 8 on specious grounds.

To say that the will of the people has been thwarted here is quite an understatement.  Their will was ignored by both their elected governor and the case judge.  And now there’s a real question of who even has standing to appeal the case.  The Governator won’t do it.

    California should have stuck with Gray Davis. Remember him? He was the big screw up that was driving Cah-Lee-Fone-Yah into the ditch.

    Ahnold was supposed to be the great conservative hope. He’s done soon, as is his sad, unaccomplished term as Governor.

    And the inauspicious end can’t come quickly enough. Ordinarily I’d say that he’s set common sense conservativism in CA back X number of years, but in this case, he’s driven a stake through it’s heart.

    The people of CA have risen up, recalled a Governor in favor of someone who campaigned on the conservative platform. The people of CA have voted to keep the common sense, historical definition of marriage.

    But somehow, the Governor has caved to liberal special interest groups. Californians are leaving the state with their treasure. Enviro wackos are cutting off the water supply to the breadbasket of the west.

    California slides into insolvency and the rest of the country has to make a decision.

    In the weird world of La La Land, the people of California voted to amend the state constitution. The state is sued. The Attorney General (the former Governor Moonbeam) and the current Governor, who pretended to be a Republican, basically refuse to defend the state against the obvious wishes of the people who approved Prop. 8.

    First question, didn’t Arnie and Jerry take oaths of office to uphold the state constitution?

    Second question, if the Judge who overturned Prop 8 is upheld, what does that do the Defense of Marriage Act?

    Third question, how do we regain control over a judiciary run amuck?
