Live Call in number: 1-818-602-4929
October 11, 2011: Tonight live at 8 p.m. PT on Gadfly Radio, Ben Boychuk of CA City Journal and John Seiler of CalWatchDog.com, welcome John Moorlach, Vice Chairman of The Orange County Board of Supervisors.
Also joining us is Bob Bowdon, the Director of the Cinema film, The Cartel--a movie about the public school unions and their establishment and the rule they hold over public schools in New Jersey. He's got a new project on Education called ChoiceMedia.TV and CA is one of the states on his radar.
We'll get John Moorlach's assessment of the debt crisis in various O.C. Cities, in light of the City of Santa Ana talking bankruptcy. He's been doing some research on how other cities and counties in CA stack up. We'll get a teaser about his statewide research and findings too.
John Moorlach is a blogger. You can visit his blog at John Moorlach's Postings Focused & Understandable Government that Works.
The Cartel, was a game changer film in the realm of public education reform.
Governor Jerry Brown has just signed several of the hundreds of bills that were passed by California's most public-sector-union dominated legislature, but he proves to be even more beholden to the union cartel than the legislature. We'll touch on a few of the most egregious bills he signed and one he vetoed.
- AB144, which bans open carry by law abiding citizens.
- John Seiler writes that by signing AB 499, Gov. Brown Undermines Parental Rights, allowing 12 year old minors to be administered Gardasil, the HPV immunization injection without their parent' consent or even knowledge.
- SB 914. In Brown’s Attack On Civil Liberties, Steven Greenhut discusses Brown's veto of SB 914, written by Mark Leno, D-San Francisco and sponsored by the ACLU.
"This measure would [have] overturn[ed] a California Supreme Court decision that held that police officers can lawfully search the cellphones of people who they arrest," Brown said in a statement on why he shot down the bill. "The courts are better suited to resolve the complex and case-specific issues relating to constitutional search-and-seizures protections."
