rights watch

Property owners no longer allowed to restrict demonstrators from their private property.  I think we should set up a protest in the living room of the Chief Justice of the California Supreme Court… see how he likes it.

Remember kids, the Bill of Rights lays out things that the Government cannot do against it’s citizens — it does not proscribe how citizens (or organizations/corporations) must treat each other.  This is what so many people in the media get wrong — you don’t have the right to get your opinions on TV or published in the paper, that’s entirely up to the people that own those outlets.

I supposed I should back off because this ruling is supposedly based on free speech guarantees in California’s Constitution, and not the U.S. Constitution.

But as the saying goes, “As California goes, so goes the nation.”

One response to “rights watch

  1. It’s not just people in the media who get this wrong… It’s people everywhere.
    True about it being CA’s constitutional issue, though. This is, I think, where your views and mine part ways. If the people of the state of California want this changed, believe me, they will get it changed. If they want the state gov’t in their living rooms, it really is their prerogative.
    I cannot tell you how frustrating it can be living in a populist state. NV isn’t nearly as bad as CA, and I had something like 15 ballot questions last time around.
