California Dreaming (wasn’t that a song) may be over. Remember that old country song..Mama don’t let your babies grow up to be cowboys..The line now should read..or sing…Mama, don’t raise your babies in California.
My first trip to California was as a wide eyed 14 year old. I was going to see Hollywood, The Sunset Strip, Beverly Hills and Santa Monica. I could tell you lots of fun stories but I will just share that the people were great that I met. California was a place of dreams. Hope. Whatever happened to the great state of California?
A new plan by a California lawmaker would allow schools to be used to promote the overthrow of the U.S. government, and let teachers in public district classrooms “inculcate in the mind of any pupil a preference for communism,” according to a traditional values advocacy organization. “Just when we thought the indoctrination in California’s public schools couldn’t get any worse, state lawmakers introduce bills that will further brainwash innocent children,” said a statement from Capitol Resource Institute, a traditional values and family advocacy organization based in California. […] Her organization, along with several others, already has been battling over lawmakers’ orders, already placed in law, that public schools in the state teach nothing but positive messages about homosexuality, transsexuality, bisexuality and other alternative lifestyles.

This will be enforced and backed up by megalomaniac, Obama who believes that the State owns your child:
Mr. Obama argues that the right of parents to be involved in the lives of their minor children is limited by the government’s determination whether the children are either fearful or are convinced the notification of an event will disappoint parents. He goes on to argue that parents need only be involved in their children’s lives when they can “be open with us and loving toward us, and we toward them.” He is argues that, since the “Big Brother Federal Government” cannot force openness and lovingness, the familial bond need not be honored at all.
The logical extension of Mr. Obama’s argument is that the parent-child relationship is not a natural right, but a privilege granted by the government. Anytime the government deems some aspect of that relationship – no matter how inconsequential – to be unacceptable, it may be severed by the state.

Face it, the state wants to own your children. They really do think they know better than you what your child needs in terms of education, political view, sexual preferences starting in Kindergarten and most certainly they have a view on marriage. So start them young is the motto..no matter they have a poor education. What matters is that they think Politically Correct. Their kind of correctness.
California still in the news: Source WorldNetDaily.
Poor Californians: The people have spoken and some are not listening: Poor Californians: Where a Judge just overrules your vote so you go at it again. Will a JUDGE OVERRULE AGAIN? Governor Arnold seems to think so.
We are listening Voters. We are proud of your stand. We are proud of your resolve. Will it work? Today who can say? You can be proud that you tried and kept on trying. These are your children, not the States. If the rest of the country goes the way of California…and feels as some of your Judges,we may as well live in Cuba, China or Russia.
Isn’t the Terminator California Governor Arnold asking for a bailout? Well yes, seems business got tired of paying up to 69% in taxes, so they are moving out! Poor Californians! Can you blame them? Poor Californians.
No matter that the people have spoken, not once but twice. Twice the people of California have said with their votes that Marriage should be defined as between a man and a woman. The first time a Judge overruled. Now it will probably go to court again. Definitely somebody is not listening to the voters of California. Suppose all votes are worthless. Just take it to court baby. Meanwhile check out the lack of tolerance below for anyone that opposes their view.
A contributor to the JoeMyGod website identifying himself as “Joe” said, “I swear, I’d murder people with my bare hands this morning.”
Matt Barber, director of cultural affairs for Liberty Counsel, called the statements “hate crimes” for their intent to create violence against someone based on their beliefs.
“This is not just a matter of some people blowing off steam because they’re not happy with a political outcome. This is criminal activity,” he said. “The homosexual lobby is always calling for ‘tolerance’ and ‘diversity’ and playing the role of victim. They claim to deplore violence and ‘hate.’ Here we have homosexuals inciting, and directly threatening, violence against Christians.“
On the “Queerty” website, “Stenar” asked, “Can someone in CA please go burn down the Mormon temples there, PLEASE. I mean seriously. DO IT.”
“I’m going to give them something to be f—ing scared of. … I’m a radical who is now on a mission to make them all pay for what they’ve done,” wrote “Jonathan.”
Liberty Counsel’s Barber said, “This is not free speech; these are ‘hate crimes’ under the existing definition. Imagine if Christian websites were advocating such violence against homosexuals. There’d be outrage, and rightfully so. It’d be national front-page news. Federal authorities should immediately investigate these threats and prosecute the perpetrators to the fullest extent of the law.”
On yet another site, “Americablog,” “scottinsf” wrote, “Trust me. I’ve got a big list of names of mormons and catholics that were big supporters of Prop 8. … As far as mormons and catholics … I warn them to watch their backs.”
“I hope they all rot in hell, those servants of a lying, corrupt devil! BAN RELIGIOUS FUNDAMENTALISM,” wrote Angelo.
One contributor went so far as to threaten to take out his frustrations on his own family.
“You want me to come back to Idaho for Christmas? Oh wait, my partner and I can’t share the same bed? We can’t show any affection or any outward sign of our love for each other? Well sorry family … no Uncle Adam and all his expensive gifts and delicious cooking for you. Your childrens’ presents will now be donations in their name to the equal rights organization of my choosing. As will their and your birthday presents, wedding presents, graduation presents, and everything else I give going forward.”
The writer continued, “Remember, I’m angry. And I’m strong from my years at the gym and really am ready to take my frustration out on someone or something.”
Barber said the Human Rights Campaign, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force and “other leaders within the homosexual lobby” should call immediately for an end to such threats.
There were suggestions of a different type of violence, too.
“Hope the gay waiters at their hotel p—ed in all the drinks they served these cretins,” “Jake” wrote about protectors of traditional marriage.
“If you’re planning a heterosexual wedding in California … be prepared for picketers. Designate someone to watch the parking lot … You’re going to have lots of unexpected expenses. Add $500 to your budget for security. … Be prepared for the flowers not lasting to the reception or the tuxedos showing up two sizes too small or the music at the reception being a way too loud or the cake tasting a little funny,” stated another threat. “Be afraid. Be very afraid. We are everywhere.”
Another even listed addresses of Mormon facilities. Mormon, Catholic and other religious groups were active in supporting the marriage definition.
“I do not openly advocate firebombing or vandalism. What you do with the information is your own choice,” wrote Jeremy. Read the story in links below from WorldNetDaily
