    Exhibits A and B are the tweets below:

     

    These would be laughable if they had been posted by 17-year-old high school students who had received little to no instruction in the precepts of the Constitution; but they were written by GROWN-UPS.  Not only that, grownups that are on broadcast news.  I’ve never seen the job application for NBC News and it’s low-IQ cable edition, but it would not surprise me in the least if the question “Do you understand the fundamentals of the Constitution and the rule of law?  If you answered ‘yes’ to this question, please turn in your application and apply for a job at Fox News and/or Rush Limbaugh.”

    I’m not going to insult my reading audience with the explanation of Republicanism, tyranny of the majority and the true intent of the Senate and its makeup; to do so would irritating to you and anyone with a functioning neocortex that may be passing by (because this week I AM going to remember to link this to my Twitter account).  In truth, though, I could NEVER figure out how the requisite 3/4ths of the States were somehow convinced to give up the power to appoint their Senators and went ahead and passed the 17th Amendment.  Dumb.  Really dumb.  If you wanted Senators to be directly elected from your state, you had the option to do so.  But you had to go ruin it for the rest of us.

    While there is no real danger of the Senate make-up or the Electoral College going the way of the Dodo, it’s important to see what would happen if these rampant crazies got their way.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you California.  Land of the oppressively taxed and the perpetually outraged.

    California, like most states, has a bicameral legislature – an Assembly and a Senate.  Both are based on population.  Which of course, begs the question – WHY have two houses, if the population is represented in like manner in both of them?  My guess would be it’s a big state and a lot of people want jobs in government, with government benefits, government payments and per diem.  Personally, I think the legislators in California are in office because they couldn’t get a high enough score on the civil service exam to work for the Department of Motor Vehicles.  It’s worth noting that the voters of California, back when sanity prevailed, put an initiative on the ballot that created term limits.  It’s also worth noting that when those in real power in the legislature are approaching their expiration date, they put on the ballot a referendum that changes the parameters for term limits – with of course a convenient clause that resets the clock for anyone currently in office.  And it always goes down in defeat.

    California has 58 counties, including the largest county in the United States – San Bernardino (to give you an idea, if you drive across the widest part, it would be roughly the equivalent of me leaving my office in Oakland, California and showing up at dorian’s front door in the Southland).  The smallest county is San Francisco, comprised ONLY of the City itself.  The intriguing thing is that once you get past the coastal areas, the state goes from light red to vivid red to the Nevada and Arizona borders.  Blue and Red counties in and of themselves are almost evenly divided; yet, up until this last election, the Sacramento legislature enjoyed an almost supermajority which allowed them to pass an exclusively leftist, socialist agenda that apparently is just fine with the blue counties.  Red counties might as well stay home on election day, except we care a great deal about sending Republicans to Congress.

    To illustrate the even greater disparity in representation, consider this – the greater Los Angeles area sends almost half the Senate representation to Sacramento; the entirety of California’s Central Valley, representing easily 25% of California’s land mass – sends only 1.  Yeah, nothing wrong there, and I’m sure the interests of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Orange County coincide nicely with their counterparts in Visalia.

    Democrats always complain about our governmental checks and balances when they’re out of power.  But nothing is more annoying than their apparent sudden realization that representation in the Senate is fair to every state.  Well, okay, got it.  But maybe they’re on to something.  After all, every state isn’t equal.  So I suggest that if we’re going to change the Senate, and since at least the original concept of the Senate was the for the representation of the individual states in the Federal system, AND since the population as a whole is already voiced in the House, why not make Senate representation based on LAND MASS?  After all, shouldn’t size count?  I can seen their faces now…..

    ….the minute they realize that the States of Sarah Palin and Ted Cruz are the new New York and California…..

    And as always, this is your open thread for Sunday, so enjoy your sports and enjoy your families, friends and our furry best friends in the waning days of summer.

      Ken Dilanian is DEEPLY implicated in the whole Russia hoax thing. He isn’t just dumb, he’s malign.

      Barbarian, I stopped by to post this for you, I think you’ll love it. It’s a 1st amendment/civil rights case in Cali. A guy who owns a farm and puts on all sorts of re-enactments of events in American history is suing not just the school board but the board members individually. They looked at his social media posts, decided he was a conservative and cut off visits by the schools, thereby costing him beaucoup $$$ – because they didn’t like the content of his speech.

      Discovery is going to be glorious.

      California, like most states, has a bicameral legislature – an Assembly and a Senate. Both are based on population. Which of course, begs the question – WHY have two houses, if the population is represented in like manner in both of them?

      Today, that is an apt question. There really isn’t much point to having two houses at the state level.

      When the system was created, however, there was a reason for it. The state Senate was apportioned similarly to the way the US Senate is, only using counties. Each county had one Senator, and the idea was that it kept the densely-populated urban areas from outvoting the rest of the state. Made perfect sense.

      Along came the Warren Court and a case called Reynolds v. Sims.

      Reynolds v. Sims, 377 U.S. 533 (1964), was a United States Supreme Court case that ruled that unlike in the election of the United States Senate, in the election of any chamber of a state legislature the electoral districts must be roughly equal in population. The case was brought on behalf of voters in Alabama by M.O. Sims, a taxpayer in Birmingham, Alabama, but affected both northern and southern states that had similarly failed to reapportion their legislatures in keeping with changes in state population after its application in five companion cases in Colorado, New York, Maryland, Virginia, and Delaware.

      And that is how California got as screwed up as it is today, to a large degree.

      Off topic, but I didn’t want to forget. Bavaria rejects Merkel’s muslim invasion.

      “Voters in Germany’s economically dominant southern state of Bavaria delivered a stunning rebuke to the ruling Christian Social Union, in an election that underscored the evaporation of support for the parties in Angela Merkel’s grand coalition in Berlin.

      With all eyes on Sunday’s Bavaria election, moments ago the first exit polls showed a historic collapse for the ruling CSU party, which has ruled Bavaria continuously since 1957, and which saw its share of the vote collapse from 47.7% in the 2013 election to just 35.5%, losing its absolute majority and suffering its worst result since 1950, as voters defected in their droves to the Greens and the far-right Alternative for Germany.

      German newspaper Welt called the election “the most painful election defeat of the past 50 years for the CSU”. As predicted in the polls, the CSU experienced a “historic debacle” in the Bavarian state elections, according to Welt. The CSU was followed by the Greens which soared in the election, more than doubling to 18.5% from 8.6% in 2013, the Free Voters also rose to 11% from 9.0%, in 2013.”

      @ eaglesoars:

      No judge assignment yet, I see, and it’s in Los Angeles. Oooeee, this is First Amendment violation at its finest. They should have a judge assignment sometime Monday – probably a Magistrate at first, which is common practice. If anyone declines, they’ll get a district court judge assigned.

      Don’t know the law firm – I’ll check them out on Monday. Be interesting to see if the School District farms it out or requests County Counsel. Probably will farm it out.

      I’ll stick this in my PACER alerts. If something gets filed I’ll get a head’s up.

      @ RIX:

      A new low, even for Cuomo:

      CNN’s Cuomo: Trump Looked Like He Was Thinking Racist Thoughts While Talking To Kanye West

      CNN’s Chris Cuomo took a swing at what racist musings President Donald Trump was thinking about when he hosted rapper Kanye West in the Oval Office on Thursday. Cuomo was also upset that Trump held a rally (Wednesday night in Erie, Pennslyvania) as Hurricane Michael battered Florida.

      Cuomo, taking an “educated guess,” said Trump probably got a “warm serotonin flush of happy hormone” when he had racist ideas while talking to West, like the headlines he would get for talking with a popular African-American man. Cuomo flashed out headlines like ‘Blacks Loves Trump’ and ‘He’s Blacker Than Obama’ as thoughts that he was certain was racing through Trump’s head.

      After playing video of Kanye West using the word ‘mother f’er’ while describing Trump’s “hero’s journey,”

      Cuomo said didn’t care about what West said, he wanted to know what racist thoughts were going on in the president’s head.

      “My curiosity wasn’t about what came out of Kanye’s mouth. My wonder went to what is going on in Trump’s head,” Cuomo said.

      “Let’s take a look at him. Here is my educated guess, OK? Other than a warm serotonin flush of happy hormone, imaginary headlines, blacks loves Trump, he’s blacker than Obama,” Cuomo, imagining racist scenarios that he thinks Trump would think up, said.

      Germany’s leading right-of-center daily Die Welt this morning
      reveals that Jamal Khashoggi was not a journalist, but a high-level
      operative for the Saudi intelligence service, an intimate of Osama bin
      Laden, and the nephew of the shadiest of all Arab arms dealers, the
      infamous Adnan Khashoggi. John Bradley reported last week in the Spectator
      that Khashoggi, who allegedly met a grisly end in a Saudi consulate in
      Istanbul, was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamist
      organization that among other things wants to replace the Saudi monarchy
      with a modern Islamist totalitarian state.

      oH! Oh!

      Carter Page is suing the DNC!

      I wonder what finally pissed him off, because he was sort of ‘live and let live’ about it before.

      Discovery is going to be a hoot. I wonder who is lawyer is?

      so one day the phone rings and I answer. Someone asks for Hubby, who wasn’t home. Want to leave a msg about the STD test he took in Vegas.

      uh huh.

      Unfortunately for Dumbass, I spent 10 years in telecom and I know who to talk to and what to ask for to get a call traced.

      He was out of a job 2 hrs later. Boy was HE surprised.

      Hey, Avenutti – how’s his record before the Supreme Court?
      Oh, and this isn’t a liberal policy decision, dumbsh*t, where they are making a statement for social justice. This is an appeal from a motion to dismiss. I’ve had 8 motions to dismiss get appealed at the 9th Circuit in the last 15 years. They upheld all but ONE of them. The “one” was a class action that they thought was dismissed prematurely and thought discovery should have proceeded.

      Oh, and Trump just appointed three conservatives justices to the 9th, Avenutti. Replaced three LIBERALS. And the hot bench three is a luck of the draw.

      By the way, Avenutti, what’s YOUR record in front of the 9th Circuit?

      Do courts ever look at the names of the lawyers on the motion and go, “yeah, not dealing with THIS asshole. DISMISSED!”?
