The idea of splitting California into pieces is not new. The procedural hurdles are monumental, and perhaps insurmountable, but the idea doesn’t go away.

CAlifornia is too damn big to govern, and has differing regional qualities that would make sense to separate out rather than bury under one state government.

How does classifying most consensual sex as rape help rape victims?

As a lawyer who has handled rape and sexual harassment cases, I can’t imagine how. But this radical result is what some want to happen in California.

In endorsing a bill in the California legislature that would require “affirmative consent” before sex...

LI #26 California Drought Map

While the rest of the country has been enjoying the “Polar Vortex”, my home state has had a slightly different set of “climate change” issues to address.

Gov. Jerry Brown declared a drought emergency on Friday, citing a need for conservation efforts and a fingers-crossed message that he “hopes it will rain”...

Progressives are being forced to eat a lot of crow this Thanksgiving.

At the national level, Obamacare is being plucked apart in the media.  In California, a touchstone of liberal green dreams and one of the state’s biggest turkeys is being thrown under the bus by a Sacramento judge.

To say that the launch of the Obamacare exchanges was full of fail would be an understatement.

All we hear about is web traffic and clicks, but mostly silence about people actually enrolling.  Hey, remember the last time we measured success by clicks and eyeballs?

As a Californian, I am thrilled to discover there is actually one business our bureaucrats won’t over-regulate.

Sadly, it is medical marijuana farming. However, the lessons it offers about the effects of selective reinforcement of regulations are enlightening.

In the Merced Sun-Star, Dan Morain describes how marijuana farming practices in Butte County threaten...

From Danelle:

Last Person Leaving Taxifornia Please Turn Off The Lights

It’s not a bumper sticker, but my sister in law sent this a few minutes ago. Her family is moving to Texas this week and leaving Taxifornia behind.

Yes, they were on the way out of LA when they took that pic this afternoon. They had been living in CA for roughly 25 years.
