I have a very busy morning today – just some basic family stuff that is taking up most of my day, so some short notes this morning.
The Obamacare (He loves that name!) ruing today that the IRS SUBSIDIES ARE ILLEGAL is a good ruling, but it will not change the basic equation ad it will not overturn the ACA. The law itself is the question here, and all that will need is a Congressional Action to amend the Law to correct the oversight OR an Executive Order which shouldn’t work, but since Congress has no balls will. Doug Johnson will join us today at 4pm to talk about the ruling and the potential for changes to the ACA. Here is his initial take on the ruling from the HORSE SENSE BLOG.
Many of us were concerned that the Governor might name Darrell Steinberg to the vacant seat on the California Supreme Court. He did not do that, but HE DID PICK A LEFTIST, Mariano-Florentino Cuéllar, 41, was a special assistant for justice and regulatory policy in the Obama White House in 2009 and 2010 and was co-chair of the Obama transition’s immigration policy working group in 2008 and 2009,
Governor Brown has also decided that the Homeowners Associations that try to fine people for having brown lawns are out of line and he has SIGNED LEGISLATION TO BAN FINES by HOA’s against people who try to save water.
The Stockton Asparagus Festival WILL BE BACK NEXT YEAR after all. A local promoter will move it to the Fairgrounds. It just won’t be called the Stockton Asparagus Festival.
What is this? The Internet being USED TO MOCK PEOPLE? The hell you say…
Some of you – and you know who you are – simply poo-pooed the idea I brought up yesterday that Jerry Brown is at least considering a run for the White House. Here we have the NY Times n an op-ed PRAISING CALIFORNIA and our “Prop 14 Top Two” system which eliminates choice and violates that 1st Amendment in favor of “accomplishment” and budget surpluses. Now you can say, “Dave, Chuck Shumer is a Hillarte,” but I am telling you that Hillary is shooting herself in the foot over and over again, and a populist like Brown, who at least looks like he is actually “getting stuff done” is more appealing to the Democrats that a polarizing not sure thing Hillary. And now it seems that MORE AND MORE PEOPLE ON THE LEFT are looking again at the California Governor who has all but shed his “Moonbeam” moniker and claimed the mantel of a guy who can “get things done.”
