Why Reagan was a great president...
I saw this headline come across my twitter screen and I had to re-check it! SAY WHAT??? California … and the DEMOCRATS are spying into the bedrooms??? AND IT”S OK???
Whew … I’m so confused! Not 3 months ago, the media had everyone – well, those who are not necessarily noted for their thinking ability – in a panic at the mere mention that Sen Santorum didn’t personally believe in the use of contraception. What was the uproar? “The REPUBLICANS are stealing our privacy!” Then came the image of a woman’s reproductive organs with a GOP elephant monogrammed in the center. All over … NOTHING! He never said, nor would he ever consider banning contraceptive options. NOW, it’s the DEMOCRATS who actually ARE breaking into our bedrooms … but it’s OK, because it’s about “AFFIRMATIVE ACTION!”
I know this is a California state issue, but at some point, it will appear in your state and mine, until the population awakens fully!
Is anyone else sick & da*n tired of the Double Standard???

For the first time, California would ask its contractors if they are gay under legislation passed Monday by the Assembly.
The measure, Assembly Bill 1960, would enable the owners of businesses that contract with the state to identify themselves as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. It would not require them to do so.
The Department of General Services currently is required to collect data on contractors by race, ethnicity and gender. AB 1960 would add LGBT-owned businesses to that list.
The bill by Sacramento Democratic Assemblyman Roger Dickinson seeks data involving state contracts for construction, professional services, and for the purchase of materials, supplies or equipment.Dickinson said the measure would allow state officials and gay or lesbian groups to better pinpoint the extent to which LGBT-owned businesses are helping to drive the state economy.
Republicans, in floor debate, said the state should not be delving so deeply into people’s private lives and that the data collected is not likely to be accurate because of hesitancy in reporting sexuality.
The Assembly Appropriations Committee has estimated that AB 1960 would cost the state $20,000 to update its forms and reporting instructions, then $35,000 annually to inform departments and compile data.
SURE! And we all know how FLUSH California is, right?
Who will pay for this?
