Very little time to post a “real” entry today, so the link below is offered as food for thought… and it makes me hungry!  What are your thoughts?  Now that Paycheck Protection has passed SCOTUS muster, should “powers that be” within the state of Kalifornia once again pursue an Idaho-styled initiative statewide?  If so, when?  in 2010, or 2012? http://www.scotuswiki.com/index.php?title=Ysursa_v._Pocatello_Education_Association

Is the Parsky Commission Up to the Task?

Mark Kersey Mark Kersey Leave a Comment

I’m thrilled that the old Red County SD has been resurrected into the SD Rostra! With all of the weighty issues being debated in Sacramento this fall, not to mention the early onset of wildfire season, it’s tempting to overlook the goings-on at the California Commission on the 21st Century Economy. Chairman Gerry Parsky and his fellow commissioners will likely wind …
