Jerry Brown Eliminates Terms Husband and Wife From State Laws CBS Even More Archaic

July 15, 2014

California has now passed legislation that eliminates the words “husband” and “wife” from state laws. As reported in The Huffington Post, “California’s same-sex couples may now be pronounced spouse and spouse after Gov. Jerry Brown (D) signed a bill [last] Monday eliminating outdated ‘husband and wife’ references from state laws.” The Post also explained that, “Senate Bill 1306 was introduced by state Sen. Mark Leno (D-San Francisco) to eliminate confusion and correct discriminatory phrasing in the California Constitution that contradicts state law.” Jerry Brown bans the discriminatory terms husband and wife from state law. CBS is now really  archaic and discriminatory .


Pelosi Discussing Rewriting Ethics Rules.Unfortunately Something She Passed, Was Working

June 11, 2010

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has privately indicated she is willing to rewrite some of the the ethics rules that House Democrats implemented two years ago.

Pelosi late last month met with members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) about the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE), which was created to bolster the ethics of the lower chamber.

At the meeting, which was also attended by CBC lawmaker and Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.), sources said Pelosi heard complaints about the OCE’s new powers and investigation tactics.

Pelosi and Clyburn were sympathetic, because the OCE has produced some unintended consequences, according to two sources in the room.

The unintended consequences were the rules were working and too many of the their members were found to be in violation. Ironic the one time they pass something that works, Pelosi wants  to amend.. Thats funny….
