How to improve public meetings? Require officials state ahead how they plan to vote

Require elected officials state in writing — 24 hours ahead of time — how they plan to vote

The  way current  Council meetings are currently conducted is an abomination .

I suggest that each member of the council be required under penalty of forfeiture of  to submit 24 hours in advance of any meeting a statement in writing which sets forth the member’s  views on issues to be voted upon and contentious issues which are not to be voted upon.

The views are not binding but are for the purpose of alerting the assembled crowd to the position of the particular   council member which would allow a member of the audience to focus his question on the issue at hand. And, furthermore, it would require the councilmember to answer a specific question with respect to his view and why he holds it.

At present we have stone faces unresponsive to public input.

Require officials state how they plan to vote 24 hours ahead.

Should illegal immigrants — who contribute to long lines at the DMV — vote in CA elections?


Long lines at  DMV in CA

Should illegal immigrants –who contribute to long DMV lines — vote in local and state elections in CA? The DMV

Latest DMV news:  The DMV  botched 23,000 voter registrations in 2018.

Speak up about long lines at the DMV.  Publicized by Jim Paterson of Fresno, CA.

Speak up!  Use your voice! Here’s how to Comment on  Active Measure 18-0005.

In CA, long lines at the DMV  are due in part   to thousands of illegal immigrants who are legally  permitted get driver’s licenses. Over one million illegal immigrants receive CA driver’s licenses.  San Francisco now allows illegal immigrants to vote in school elections.

Question:  Should  those illegal immigrants also  be allowed to vote in CA local and state elections?  Is it time to control our southern border with Mexico?

CA Democrats recently rejected Republican Assemblyman Jim Paterson’s request to audit the DMV.  And now we learn that the Democrat controlled legislature in CA has  has  special DMV office so the Democrats and other politicians  don’t stand in lines.

So  the Democrat controlled elite  CA legislature  get special treatment for themselves  while  the working class  “masses” stand in long  lines  — due in part to  the  one million  illegal immigrants permitted by CA   Democrats  to get driver’s  licenses. A million plus illegals do make for longer DMV lines.

Spokespeople for Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon and Senate President Pro Tem Toni Atkins did not respond to questions whether it’s appropriate for lawmakers to get special services at the Capital office.  Of course not.

You have until August 24 to Comment on whether only US citizens may register to vote and vote in CA elections.  Speak up!

My view:

I agree that only U.S. citizens can register to vote in California state or local elections. CA has a border with Mexico and thousands of persons illegally cross the border The statistics are staggering.

These illegals are citizens of other countries and their allegiance is to those countries — not to the U.S. Only people who stand in line and legally are permitted to enter and later go through the process of becoming a U.S. citizen should be permitted to vote in CA elections. Go Monterey Bay Forum for more discussion. All public comments are welcome there. Cameron Jackson

Below is the measure that will appear on the November 2018  ballot:  

Elections Code section 2001 is added to read:
2001{a) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, only persons who are United States citizens may
register to vote and vote in an election held within the territory within which he or she resides and the
election is held. This section applies to elections held by the state and every subdivision of the state,
including cities, counties, charter cities, charter counties, charter city and counties, and districts.

Trump funny? Pelosi out of it? America more free in 2018? You decide

Freedoms Americans experience as of March, 2018

Trump funny? Pelosi out of it? America more free in 2018? You decide.

Where are American freedoms in 2018?
Thump  was supposed  be history by summer 2017.
The  Clinton/ Steele dossier, which   was used to get a FICA  warrant to spy on Trymp, continues to  unravel  as 2018 progresses.

Some of the freedoms  Americans experience as of March, 2018 include:

A ‘funny’ President who pokes fun at himself and ridicules his opponents.  Trump provides  better entertainment than Late Night TV. Catch Trunp’s rendition of how to be Presidential.
The tax cuts were heralded as ‘crumbs’ by Pelosi and the Democrats.   The 2018 Tax cut from 35% ti 21%  for large corporations means much more freedom for them  compete throughout the world.
  • Companies and corporations are  free to give employees  raises and bonuses.
  • And freeom  to hire — 300,000 in Feb 2018.
  • Freedoms which encourage more to participate in the work force.
  • Freedom to spend more personal income as less is taken away by federal government— for 80% othe f Americans.
How about freedom to think other thoughts?
Freedom to believe America is exceptional and  to  take back  to control our borders.
Freedom to leave CA which now has the lowest s quality of life in USA.
Freedom for US Steel to hire back 500 workers.  More coal workers are needed in the coal mines to produce electricity to make steel.
None of this would have happened  with Hilary and the Clinton Foundation in the White House and shaping economic polities.
Who lurks in the background?   Obama and  Michelle?
