Brown Vetoes 'Diapers for Dads,' Citing Over-Regulated State

On Friday, Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed two bills that would have made it easier for men to change their babies' diapers in public areas, according to the Sacramento Bee.

Entrepreneurs in California's famous Humboldt County are worried that when the cannabis industry is expanded in the state, their golden goose will be stolen by those who live elsewhere, thus preventing the county from reaping the benefits of its teeming business, according to the Eureka Times-Standard.

Last week, Breitbart News noted that Texas public pension plans had the highest asset percentage of any state pension program invested in hedge funds, with one plan at almost a quarter of assets invested.

On September 19, the Teacher Retirement System of Texas (TRST), the sixth-largest public pension in America, announced that it is, like California's CalPERS, dumping some hedge funds. 21 Sep 2014

On one side are the teachers' unions, the very core of the Democratic Party's union muscle, which put their members' interests first. On the other are an ambitious generation of reformers, struggling to break the unions stranglehold on policy. 21 Sep 2014

Gov. Jerry Brown’s Payoff to the Enviro-Extremists

Proposition #1 isn’t a water infrastructure bond, it’s nothing more than a $7.12 Billion payoff to the enviro-extremists who control natural resources in California. What else do you call it when over 50% of the money is being used to fund the daily operations of those agencies whose goal is deny every drop of water to agriculture and industry in our state so that the fish can flourish while the farmers die. It’s not by accident that over 800,000 acre-feet of water were allowed to flow out to sea in the midst of the worst drought most Californians have ever seen. That’s real power. 19 Sep 2014
