Thanks CCC! Nice to have a CA thread to keep track of things.

Being in the 50th Dist. I'm not worried about Francine "You don't need papers to vote" Busby taking the seat away from Brian Billbray.

Praying hard today for McClintock!

California: Smoking Mad About Prop 86

I stopped to drop off a carton of cigarettes for a disabled veteran at a nursing home. They have a bleak area outside where they can enjoy a cigarette at fixed intervals. He was reading an absentee ballot about Proposition 86.

He said, “This is crazy! We can’t afford $70 for a carton of cigarettes. That’s the most prejudiced, hateful proposition I ever read.”

What I really thought was, the trail of their whole life is littered with their victims. If they could eliminate every smoker on earth, they would just channel another fanatical, inflictive vendetta. It’s their drug of choice. They can’t quit.

In Los Angeles county: Proposition H [as in Hell no!]

Would you like a parcel tax added on to your property tax bill? If so, vote yes on Prop H. You'll not only get to pay for your own housing, but you'll get to subsidize the housing of others.

Prop. H Stands For Housing, Tax Hike On Property

To win, the measure must secure two-thirds of the vote, making Proposition H a test of whether affordable housing has become a top priority of local voters.

The largest individual contribution, $200,000, came from Jerry Perenchio, the reclusive Univision founder who is one of the largest political donors in the nation.

We only get to vote yes or no on the judges. I've lost my notes, but before I voted, I knew which governor had appointed each Judge. I don't expect that any of Gray's appointees will actually lose, but I tried.

As far as I know, the last incumbent judge that lost an election was Jerry Brown's Rose Bird.

Radical Judges On California Ballot

November 02, 2006 04:38 PM EST

California may be in more trouble than New Jersey, however. The most radical group of liberal judicial activists in the history of any one state election is now on the ballot on November 7, 2006. Will Californians go down the same destructive path that New Jersey and Massachusetts have? Only a miracle will stop this madness. Let the miracle begin with an educated analysis of those good and bad judges on the upcoming California ballot.

November 7, 2006: Will The Voters Of California Affirm The Most Radical Group Of Judges In United States History? Here Are The Judicial Choices On The Nov. Ballot:

California Supreme Court: Vote NO!

Joyce L. Kennard - A radical liberal, Republican appointee, Joyce L. Kennard has already stated that she approves of same-sex marriages. Kennard's grievous rulings on behalf of the abortion industry seem to know no boundaries. She voted to throw out the Parental Notification law, thus depriving parents of the right to know if their minor daughters are getting abortions. Vote No!

Carole A. Corrigan - The Gay and Lesbian Times stated that Corrigan is perhaps the first lesbian appointed to California's Supreme Court when liberal Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger appointed her to the state's highest court in January of 2006. Both Corrigan and Kennard voted with the majority on the Calif. Supreme Court in a recent 7-0 vote to uphold a Berkeley, Calif. city ordinance that ordered the Sea Scouts to accept homosexuality around their little boys or vacate their charity status in the city. Vote No!

Associate Justice Court of Appeals - Fourth Appellate District

Divison One - Presiding Justice Judith McConnell

Vote NO:

Judith McConnell - McConnell is perhaps, the single most radical justice in California. Originally appointed by leftist Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown, McConnell was recommended to the Fed. Court of Appeals by Pres. Bill Clinton and nominated by Sen. Barbara Boxer. In 2001, Gray Davis nominated her to the Court of Appeals. McConnell is simply a radical, pro-homosexual judicial activist who made one of the most notorious anti-family rulings in U.S. history. In the case of Betty Lou Batey, a born-again Christian mother who divorced her husband for being involved in homosexuality: McConnell granted child custody to the homosexual partner of Batey's husband after he died of AIDS. When Batey's husband died, Judge McConnell granted custody of their daughter to the deceased husband's living gay lover instead of Mrs. Batey because Mrs. Batey told the court that she felt homosexuality was a sin

(http://www.flashreport.org/blog0a.php?postID=2006101314115045&authID=2005091915442370). Voters must Vote NO on returning McConnell back to the Court of Appeals.

Division One - Seat One - Patricia D. Benke

Vote NO:

Patricia D. Benke - Another radical, pro-abortion liberal appointed to the Appellate Court by former Republican Gov. Deukmejian. Benke ruled against pro-lifers in one of the most notorious San Diego abortion cases in U.S. history

(http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=36787). Benke ruled in favor of Planned Parenthood attorney James McElroy to force USJF pro-life attorneys to pay nearly $100,000 in bogus fees when the pro-life attorneys filed a lawsuit to protect young girls who were getting abortions at Planned Parenthood clinics

(http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=37440). Benke must be rejected by voters on November 7, 2005. Vote NO!

Division One - Seat 2 - Richard D. Huffman

VOTE YES!

Richard D. Huffman - Justice Huffman, appointed by former Gov. Deukmejian, has made a recent ruling that was very favorable for pro-life and traditional family values. In the recent case of Benitez v. North Coast Women's Care Medical Group, Inc. et al., Justice Huffman, in a 3-0 ruling, ruled that doctors at the clinic did not have to impregnate a lesbian under their treatment

(http://www.casp.net/benitez.html). In supporting the religious views of the doctors, Huffman and the appellate court supported the physicians' right to deny impregnating unmarried couples because it violated their Biblical beliefs. Justice Huffman's support for Christian values in this case is a clear reason to reelect him to the court on Nov. 7, 2006. Vote YES!

Division One - Seat 3 - Judith Haller

Vote NO:

Judith Haller - One of the most radical and liberal supporters of abortion in the California judiciary. Appointed by former liberal Republican Gov. Pete Wilson, Haller ruled against pro-lifers in one of the most notorious San Diego abortion cases in U.S. history (http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=36787). Haller ruled in favor of Planned Parenthood attorney James McElroy to force USJF pro-life attorneys to pay nearly $100,000 in bogus fees when the pro-life attorneys filed a lawsuit to protect young girls who were getting abortions at Planned Parenthood clinics (http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=37440). All voters must reject Haller's reelection to the appellate court. Vote NO!

Division Three - Seat 4 - Cynthia G. Aaron

Vote NO:

Cynthia G. Aaron - Another radical appointment by former Democratic Gov. Gray Davis, Cynthia G. Aaron was recently honored by the radical liberal group, the American Jewish Committee, whose board of trustees include radicals Bob Filner, Lynn Shenk and gay pride participant Sheriff Bill Kolender, as well as lesbian boardmember Bonnie Dumanis. This group lists as speakers for its leadership program, leftist Congresswoman Susan Davis, embryonic stem cell advocate Joe Panetta of BIOCOM, and radical San Diego City Councilman Scott Peters (http://www.ajcsandiego.org). The American Jewish Committee has been fighting aggressively for the removal of the Ten Commandments from public squares and is a major proponent of the illgotten "separation of church and state" ideology (http://www.ajc.org/site/c.ijITI2PHKoG/b.836823/k.76DA/ChurchState_Relations.htm). Aaron has already made a major ruling in a lesbian libel case and will continue to be a dangerous judge making rulings hostile to traditional family values. All voters must reject Cynthia G. Aaron. Vote NO!

Division One - Seat 5 - Joan K. Irion

Vote NO:

Joan K. Irion - Appointed by Democratic former Gov. Gray Davis, Irion is sure to continue the radical rulings for abortion and gay rights that other Davis appointees have been handing down. Voters should reject Irion on Nov. 7, 2006. Vote NO!

Divsion Two - Seat 1 - Art W. McKinster

Vote NO:

Art W. McKinster- Appointed by former Gov. Deukmejian, on surface McKinster is not that radical, until a deeper review of his rulings is demonstrated. McKinster's ruling to uphold a $1.4 million jury verdict on behalf of a strip club in 1993 demonstrates that this justice is not interested in protecting society from the adult entertainment industry. The case involving The Flesh Club in San Bernardino, was notorious for the court intervening in the right of a local government to restrict businesses it deems a public nuisance. McKinster, in siding with the strip club, ruled that laws restricting adult entertainment, are unconstitutional (http://www.freespeechcoalition.com/FSCView.asp?coid=865). This perverted-minded judge should be voted down on Nov. 7, 2006. Vote NO!

Division Two - Seat 2 - Betty A. Richli

Vote YES:

Betty A. Richli - Appointed by Gov. Pete Wilson, Justice Richli has mostly been conservative in her rulings. Recent rulings to protect student's and parent's privacy by declaring a state law unconstitutional which had allowed the names of minor students to be publicly disclosed when the student is expelled from school was a fair ruling to protect parental/child rights. Richli has also ruled in favor of the strength of marijuana drug laws. She has ruled that police officers cannot sue for defamation of character when they are falsely accused, a ruling not too favorable with law enforcement. Overall Justice Richli should be returned to the bench on Nov. 7, 2006. Vote YES!

Division Two - Seat 3 - Jeffrey King

Vote NO:

Jeffrey King - Appointed by liberal Gov. Gray Davis, King gave $450 to radical, abortion-extremist Democrat Congressman Joe Baca in 2002 for his congressional campaign (http://herndon2.sdrdc.com/cgi-bin/dcdev/forms/C00325449/68240/sa/11A1). King should be soundly rejected for reelection on Nov. 7, 2006. Vote NO!

Division Two - Seat 4 - Douglas P. Miller

Vote NO:

Douglas P. Miller - As a recent appointment to the Appellate Court by Gov. Schwarzenegger, there is no confidence in any Schwarzenegger appointment with regards to abortion or homosexual issues. Schwarzenegger has not appointed anyone who supports a pro-life or pro-traditional marriage inclination. Additionally, Miller spent a great deal of his educational and teaching history with BYU, thus his prejudicial tempremant towards Mormonism could be a problem for those who are strict Christian traditionalists. Vote No on Miller on Nov. 7, 2006. Vote NO!

Division Three - Seat 1 - Kathleen O'Leary

Vote NO:

Kathleen O'Leary - Appointed by former California Democratic Governor Gray Davis, there is no doubt that O'Leary will rule in favor of the radical abortion and gay lobbies whenever those issues come before her court. O'Leary should be soundly rejected by voters. Vote NO!

Division Three - Seat 2 - Raymond J. Ikola

Vote NO:

Raymond J. Ikola - As an apointee to the Appellate Court by Democratic Gov. Gray Davis, Ikola has made controversial rulings on illegal immigrants and video camera survelliance issues vs. free speech. Ikola has the potential to make very dangerous rulings and should be rejected by voters. Vote NO!

By James Hartline, publisher of the James Hartline Report.

Raced to the polls to keep Pelosi from becoming the House Speaker (and keep FO off my back) but guess what?

The CaGOP didn't even bother to enter a candidate in my congressional district. In fact, the CaGOP didn't enter candidates in 7, California, congressional district races.

One wonders about the mood of thousands of registered Republicans in California, effectively disenfranchised by their own party.

I don't remember which the best sites for election results were, but here are a couple:


http://vote.ss.ca.gov

Secretary of State website

Results are not posted until all the polls close.
Polls close at 8pm on November 7, 2006.


http://www.sdvote.com

San Diego Election Results

• The first bulletin on election night will be released just after 8 p.m. and consist of the absentee ballots voted on paper that have been signature verified and prepared for tabulation.

• The second bulletin will be at approx. 10 p.m. and will consist of absentee ballots cast on the touchscreens at the Registrar’s office during the 29-day voting period. (This will be cumulative; including the results of the first bulletin.)

• Precinct results will appear on the third bulletin at 10:30 and then every 30 minutes after that. (Again, cumulative; including results from the first two bulletins.) If it is important for you to know the absentee results later, then you should print out the first and second bulletins before the precinct totals show up.

• Precinct-by-precinct totals will be available a day or two after the election. Please call before you come to the Registrar’s looking for them. It will be a few thousand pages and we might wait until after one or two of the add-on counts, just so they are more complete. The final precinct results will be available after the election is certified; no later than December 5. A certified copy will be mailed to each jurisdiction with candidates or propositions on the ballot.

I hadn't posted the secretary of state link yet because they didn't have it set up yet.

This link looks like the address they're using for tonight's results...

#33 Would disenfranchise me! That combined with liberals on the GOP ticket is quite a lot to handle in one day.

On a more positive note, I would like to be the first to wish John Garamendi 'Bon Voyage' and a fond farewell as he moves on to new endeavors. May he find his new destination so pleasant that he never returns to California. Perhaps another admirer of the Father of the Peace Corps might follow in the near future? (Wishful thinking!)

Hubby and I voted earlier than normal today. We usually don't vote until after 6pm when he arrives home from work but today he was able to leave earlier so we voted around 4pm. We didn't expect there to be many people voting at that time but we were wrong. By the time we were finished voting there was a line of at least 20 people waiting to get inside to vote.

We are in Santee, suburb of SD. Our voting place is in the garage of a residence. Once we were inside the garage and checked in, we then had to wait for one of the 3 voting machines to become available. In the meantime, the poll workers were asking the people in line if anyone would like to use a paper ballot. Many chose that option and were outside of the garage, sitting on the lawn, retaining walls, etc. marking their ballots.

One of the poll workers told us that they had tried to get more voting machines but were told that no more were available. He also said that this was the largest turnout so far that they had ever had at this particular voting place. I can't wait for the results to come in!

Oh! And when we arrived back home, Arnold had called and left a message : )
