California now criticized from the left

California being what it is – a very large state with a complex social and economic matrix and a unique political structure – generates an endless stream of analysis and criticism. In recent decades, as California veered to the left politically, it drew fawning attention from like-minded media, portraying the state as a harbinger of the nation’s future. California’s politicians such as Gov. Gavin Newsom fed the notion. “California is what America is going to look like,” he has boasted. “Californ...

Get back to the basics: Kevin Kiley

Our state government is broken. I’ve seen this first-hand as a member of the California Legislature, and prior to that as a public school teacher and prosecutor. Over the last 16 months, Californians have come to the same conclusion. We’ve known for some time that our state is on the decline. One survey showed nearly two-thirds of residents believe the American Dream is dead here. But the COVID era has connected the dots in an unmistakable way: our quality of life is declining because government...

Why we ought to be missing Jerry Brown (sort of)

SACRAMENTO – Gubernatorial press conferences typically are public-relations blitzes where governors tell you the wonderful way they are handling every problem and reporters ask lame questions designed to prove to their editors they are on top of things. They’re rarely very interesting, but with former Gov. Jerry Brown the events always were a hoot. “I’ve often used the phrase, from Thomas Hobbes, ‘Bellum omnes contra omnes.’ Or rather, ‘Bellum omni contra omnes. War of all against all.’ It will ...

Congress needs to make vaccination mandatory for lawmakers and staff

As the two of us learned when we were Congressional staffers, Capitol Hill is all but designed to be a Covid-19 spreader, with elected officials, Congressional and support staff coming from diverse communities into the Capitol complex, working in close proximity and potentially either bringing the contagion in with them, or taking it home, write Kendra Barkoff Lamy and Doug Heye. The evidence is plain and leads to one conclusion: no one should be allowed in without a vaccination.
