    The California Supreme Court ruled against the Republicans and exposes them to ridicule for their hypocrisy.

    State Supreme Court spurns Republican request to keep old maps - San Jose Mercury News

    "If they'd felt the same about Assembly seats, they would have done the same thing there and included them in the lawsuit, said Doug Herman, a Democratic political consultant for Assembly Speaker John Perez, D-Los Angeles"

    To understand the hypocrisy comment and to put the above quote in context see the link above.

    Alas there's no hope for Californians...the public sector has almost complete control over the private sector and will inevitably milk the Golden Goose to bones.

    A sign of things to come for America..dependence and loss of freedoms.

    BTW.. what you consider obstructionists, I consider freedom fighters..

    I might write paragraphs explaining reality in response to your biased post which exposed your ignorance, but it would be a waste of words. Let me suggest that California has an economy as diverse as any state in the nation and will as always lead the nation in new ideas and innovation.

    Did it bother you when Texas Judges tried to write the legislative maps for them, AGAINST the State Constitution and Federal law?

    Doesn't seem to bother you to post on a matter where you show complete disinterest and ignorance of the facts. As a matter of fact there are only a few things in Texas in which I'm interested; one is when Delay goes to prison, another is the food in San Antonio and warm evenings on the river walk, and the last are the beaches and bars in Galveston.

    Well now.. I'm glad you held back on your response as it would be both arrogant and misinformed opinion.. I just thought I'd bump your thread as a courtesy and perhaps an awakening for you..alas that will never be and I'm moving on...:eusa_whistle:

    Funny, Republicans go on about how bad California is, but that state still sends

    California gets back $0.78 for every dollar it gives the federal government.

    The Tax Foundation - Federal Spending Received Per Dollar of Taxes Paid by State, 2005

    And they pay to the federal government much more than any other state.

    Federal tax revenue by state - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Not bad for a state right wingers say is falling apart. If Republican states could only pay as much as Democratic states, the country would be doing so much better.

    Very true.

    It’s obstructionism by means of the GOP being clueless and unprepared.

    But you support activist Federal Judges usurping State authority and power to draw maps in States you disagree with, RIGHT?

    Apparently no one does, but keep on telling us what other people believe.
