"Indeed, the rage of theorists to make constitutions a vehicle for the conveyance of their own crude, and visionary aphorisms of government, requires to be guarded against with the most unceasing vigilance."
     -- Joseph Story
     Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States
     Book III, § 1857.

Some California legislative idiocy, by way of Joanne Jacobs, and I'm late to the party.

One of the commenters raises the question, why would Goldberg be doing this? Call me cynical, but my guess is, Goldberg wants all those kids spending a lot of time surfing the net, and banking on their parents not having the time to supervise them when they do; her nebulous hope is that wallowing in swill will later incline those children toward the Democratic Party.

My wife and I have been talking every once in a while for the past year or so about whether we ought to give up on this hellhole of a state and shake its dust off our shoes. This might just do it.

    Few people move solely because of political grievances, but plenty of camels' backs have been broken by them. In the long run this contributes to the Red State - Blue State divide. In our own case, we had the opportunity to move from Blue Illinois to Purple Wisconsin for economic reasons and when weighing the merits my wee wifey saw the difference in gun laws as a clincher.

    Can't wait, all those singles...
    Leaving the land of the F&N's is not a rational decision but a cry for help like an attempted self emolation. I did it years ago, to Texas, and I still can't spend all of those lovely cal/dollars.
    Gun laws or not why would anyone move to Wisconsin (retorical)I have a brother in Iowa and have begun to call him my retarded brother because he won't leave.
