Reimagining California 

It's time for us to take a cue from Hollywood, as tired and bankrupt of ideas as they are, and it's this. Time to "reimagine" the entire state government. Dump, as in recall or impeach, the Governor, the Senators, the Legislature and the Supreme Court. Turn their sorry asses out of office, and replace them with better casting. The Governator has failed and fallen to B-List Status, flailing at bad ideas -- like cutting state employee pay -- rather than finding good ideas, like cutting elected official pay to the purported one dollar per year that he takes. Time to dump Boxer and Feinstein, the former a cheerleader for irrelevant ideas who doesn't get the big picture, the latter a cheerleader for herself who doesn't get anything more than "I was there when Harvey Milk was killed, so love me liberals." Mouth, money, is...?

Follow that up by dumping the six Supremes who not only reversed themselves badly, but violated the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution and raped the California Constitution, all in one wimp-ass, stupid opinion. The lone dissenter (Hm... a latina, kudos to President Obama for maybe being onto something there) promoted to Chief Justice. As for the House? Make them all justify their jobs in a referendum for re-election now.

Call it California 2.0 or Golden State Revisited or... whatever Hollywood marketing wonks come up with. But, most of all, call it this -- the elected officials in this state have screwed the pooch big time, and deserve to be kicked to the curb. Well, actually, they deserve a good old tar and feathering and riding out of town on a rail, if not just lynching. But, from Ahnold on down, there is something rotten in Sacramento, and the only way to fix it is to dump the whole damn bunch, then replace them. And doing it the same way they assign jurors would not be a bad idea at all.

So, here's an initiatve for our next election: Every elected state official is hereby removed from office. Replacements shall be selected from among all adults within the state who are currently registered to vote, have registered a car, or have a driver's license, by random drawing. Passage of this ammendment also remove the ability of the State Constitution to be ammended by anything less than a 2/3rds vote of the legislature, and any new taxes or fees can only be imposed after a 3/4ths vote of the public. Finally, salaries of elected officials are limited to two times the average gross income of residents in their jurisdiction, with raises or decreases determined by an impartial determination of the average, and never subject to vote, ever again.

Supreme Court Injustice 

Let the impeachment proceedings begin against the six California Supreme Court Justices who today caved in and betrayed the Constitution. Not a one of the six deserves the title "Justice", but rather should be branded an "Injustice". Worse still, in bending over backwards to kiss the ass of the religiously insane minority that foisted Proposition 8 on California, they have reversed themsevles and their previous decision, and deserve to be tarred, feathered and run out of the state on a rail.

Their opinion does not adhere to any apparent logic at all. They overturned California's previously passed by initiative ban on same-sex marriage, and any sane person would have taken that to mean that such initiatives could not stand again. On top of that, their ruling is contradictory -- they uphold a law that says "Only marriages between a man and a woman shall be recognized in California", and yet say that 18,000 same-sex marriages performed in the state are valid. They can't have it both ways. By keeping those marriages intact, they defy the law they uphold. They are having their cake and eating it, too. But, honestly, they can all just eat me.

It's time to sharpen the pitchforks, march on the halls of power and demand the ouster of these fuckers. If the power companies could force an initiative recalling Grey Davis simply because he pissed them off; if the Mormons could meddle in our state politics to pass Prop 8 -- then the rest of us can play the same. Step one: impeach the six Supreme Court Injustices who stuck their heads way up their asses today. Step two: demand that The Governator replace them with justices who support equal rights for all, or elect Gavin Newsom as his replacement next year. Step three: take action, take to the streets, remind these assholes that the sole source of their power is the approval of the "majority" they claim to support. Step four: If your rights were infringed today, tell the State to fuck off when they want your money. No Rights? No Taxes. Step five: The sane areas of California -- mostly the coastal cities from San Diego to San Francisco -- secede. The farmers and rednecks and idiots inland can go make their own state, and we can become El Dorado. But, guess what? The coastal strip will become the world's fifth largest economy upon creation. The dirt flats and strip malls and truck stops inland -- you get to be the western white trash trailer livin' inbred banjo-playing homeland, and will probably become the welfare capital of the US in a year. But hey, that's your reward for being tiny minded assholes who are so totally terrified of catching teh ghey just because someone says it's okay.

Well -- fuck you. Fuck all y'all. And fuck 6/7ths of the California Supreme Court. This is war, and the right side is going to win, hands down.

Attention Whores 

Okay. Enough of this Miss California pageant bullshit. Carrie Prejean should have been dumped as soon as she expressed her bigoted opinions, and definitely should have been dumped once it was revealed she breached he contract by concealing the existence of revealing pix and spent time spouting off against same sex marriage when she should have been working for the pageant. There are only two reasons Donald "Irrelevant in the 80s" Trump kept her on. 1) He's thinking with the little Trump Tower; 2) He knows that this scandal will keep his sorry ass in the news for weeks.

As Miss California, Carrie Prejean is supposed to represent the state.
She pretty much proved herself to be on the side of the ignorant farm county bigots when she opened her yap, and moreso when she found it more important to work anti Same-Sex Marriage rallies, instead of appearing at contractually required Beauty Pageant events. This story should have been over weeks ago, but unfortunately Trump, the ultimate Attention Whore, has decided to keep the wound open.

Well, here's my response to Trump and Prejean: You're Fired. Get the hell out of the media, slink on back to your conservative cave somewhere deep beneath the Times Square Subway Stations, and never be heard from again. We really have more important shit to worry about than some has-been, toupeed, Ponzi-scheming New York asshole and a mindless blonde haired fundie spewing bimbo whose only qualification is "Look at my tits!"

Note to the so-called mainstream media -- if you want to end your slide into irrelevance, you'll ignore stories like this, and get back to the important stuff, like what did Nancy Pelosi know about torture and when, will we try the war criminals of the past administration, will Dick Cheney get the Mussolini treatment?

Anything else is irrelevant and pointless, and I feel dirty just having to blog about it. Carrie Prejean belongs in a trailer park in Arkansas, and Donald Trump deserves to be Oprah's bitch boy on a regular Wednesday Segment between her hyping new age bullshit artist Dr. Oz and clueless shit stain Jenny McCarthy.

in a just universe, most of the above mentioned people would be unknowns. in a just universe, Barack Obama would have been elected president at the first possible opportunity, in 1996.

Meanwhile, In a Parallel Universe... 

To the Family Cheney -- Go fuck yourselves. While Shrubya was in office, Whistle Dick saw fit to hide out in an undisclosed location. Now that he's a private citizen again, he can't help but mouth off uselessly. Unfortunately, his daughter seems to have grown a pair, and is also now spewing nonsense into the universe. To wit:

In an interview on Fox News, the daughter of Vice President Dick Cheney sharply criticized the new administration for agreeing to release photographs depicting alleged abuses at U.S. prisons in Iraq and Afghanistan during the Bush administration.

"I think it is really appalling that the administration is taking this step," she said in the interview. "Clearly what they are doing is releasing images that show American military men and woman in a very negative light."

Oh, really? So, Liz, dear -- where the hell were you when the first body bags came rolling back from Iraq? Where were you while these same soldiers you pretend to care so much about were being killed for nothing? Hiding in daddy's bunker? Or partying with the Bush twins?

At least be honest, and state your argument this way: "Obama is revealing the truth and making my daddy look like the total amoral asshole he is, and might even land his ass on trial for war crimes, for which he deserves to be tried."

That one I'd accept. Hey, a nearly 90 year old man was just extradited from the US to Germany to be tried for war crimes alleged to have been committed sixty years ago. Why should your daddy get a pass?

He shouldn't. And President Obama is not casting the American Military in a negative light, you ignorant cow. He is shining the light of truth on your father and his partner in crime -- both of whom should be tried, convicted and punished to the fullest extent of the law.

So -- tell the truth, or shut up and go away. But enough of this NeoCon clutching at straws. Your party is over, your movement is dead, and your former leaders should all go the way of the Nuremberg Defendants. Ooh -- so that makes the US Military look bad? That was because they were only following orders from your Nazi asshole father.

Hey, here's an idea. Tell him to go duck hunting with some of his middle-eastern pals, like Osama bin Laden. Or, like most of America would like to, tell him to go right to hell.

Here's to no one named Cheney or Bush ever being electable to any office ever again.

If anyone had any doubts, President Obama's performance at tonight's White House Correspondents dinner should put them to rest. In this clip, it's quite obvious that he's light years beyond W's lame "Oh -- are the weapons of mass destruction here?" and even surpasses Bill Clinton's brilliant "Final Days" video of 1999.

Simply put, after a hundred plus days, President Obama still has it. He is JFK, FDR and Lincoln rolled into one -- a man with a sense of humor about himself, willing to joke about his shortcomings, while showing his real strength in humility.

We rolled the dice and hoped for a savior last November. Six months later... yeah, I think we won on that gamble.

Don't listen to the whining Limbaugh minority. For the first time in a long time, we have a president who totally gets it. Now shut up, sit back, and enjoy the ride.
