Weren’t propositions 187 and 209 also similarly left to twist in the wind like this?
This "standing" thing has become a hammer to beat up those who would participate in the culture wars.
If the very sponsors of the amendment that was overturned by the judge do not have "standing", then it appears to me that the concept of standing has problems that the malicious use as a club.
Schwarzenegger should be dragged out of office and not allowed to complete his term.
Pray for the USA.
Of course "we" have no standing. How dare we as mere mortals set government policy that is contradictory to the personal preferences of the Lords who rule over us?
Arnold long ago quit his job as governor, and is now firmly back in the gay hollywood leftist camp.
He just never bothered to officially resign, and tell us.
This is ALL about his marketability in hollywood go-forward.
They probably don't because I can't see how they can show damage.
But regardless, it doesn't make any sense to me to have a process where your state constitution is amended through a popular referendum only to have that amendment declared unconstitutional. If your constitution says something then isn't it by definition Constitutional?
First the soap box then the ballot box.And when that is struck down by some fruitcake judge claiming the people have no standing its time for the cartridge box.
Yup....as the song goes, “say goodby to hollywood.”
No way Jerry the fairy will appeal, he’s queerer than a 3 dollar bill.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or for men to have sexual relations with other men; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
See, it’s a right. It there in black and white.
the time of talk and legal action against this communist govt is over
What are you going to do, then? What are any of us going to do? I am just as guilty as the next, probably more so in this regards, so don't think I am excluding myself from this. If it is time for action, then shouldn't action take place? If that is the case, then we are all either just huffing and puffing, or sitting on our hands. Shame on us all in either event.
A Hollywood Governor married and controlled to a Kennedy, A States Attorney who is running for Governor by seeking the queer vote, a Judge who is a homosexual in a state made up of illegal aliens and liberal turds.
Not much chance there.
This judge is an idiot....supporters of Prop 8 have standing....they were the ones challenged in court....and they were the ones who proposed the legislation
This is a heterophobic judge appointed by the Liberal RINO George H W Bush. A GOP judge is now aiding the Liberals.
The supporters of Prop 8 should continue to proceed, since they do have standing, as they were the ones who got the legislation started
“Pray for the USA.”
Amen....seriously with fasting.
The next step in grass roots activism is to *reclaim* the party from the RINOs at the base: it is the precinct committee chairs who select the candidates.
And around half of these positions nationwide are unfilled.
...as a football bat?
