Hey, I just want to let everyone know that democracy is in jeopardy and there is not much Alex Trebek can do for us now (unless he wants to reveal his true identity). The California supreme court (lower case because they don't deserve capitalization) is about to hear a case that might lead to the nullification of Proposition 8 (the marriage protection amendment to the California Constitution). So a majority vote placed the amendment in the CA constitution that limits the definition of marriage to just heterosexual relationships. This was done in response to the CA supreme court claiming that a previous bill on the same issue approved by CA voters a few years earlier was unconstitutional. So what did the state do? They stuck it to the man (to be fair it was two women and two men that they stuck it to). In November of 2008 the state of CA put the marriage protection clause in the constitution (try and call that unconstitutional). OK so now opposition of Prop 8 says that because it was a huge change (not really just going back to where is was a few month earlier) that it should have gone through the legislature first and because it should be nullified. Hmmmmm, let's see, a majority of the state decides to make a law because four people don't like it. Now we take it back to those same four people to ask if it was ok to make. Uhh, where are the checks and balances? It looks like the Judicial system could rule our country if things go one way. Why do I say this? To ask you to remember our CA supreme court in our prayers, so that they might be fair to democracy. Well gtg... I have a job interview to get to.
And as always don't mind the typos, I don't proof read often.
