9/7     Express your opinion on gender-neutral marriage to Ahnold:

        The gender-neutral marriage bill in CA just made it through the
        legislature intact and is now heading to the Governor.
        It's bill AB 849. If enough people call to support it, hopefully
        we can get it to go through.

        (If you oppose it, well, you can call, too, to express your opinion.
        Mine, obviously is in favor of passage.)

        Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger
        State Capitol Building
        Sacramento, CA 95814
        Phone: 916-445-2841
        Fax: 916-445-4633

        It's easy to voice support through the voicemail system -
        the buttons in order to show support are 2 - 1 - 1.
        (and if you want to oppose it, the options would be 2 - 1
        - 2. So don't go flaming me for posting one-sided info)

        You can also use the form at http://www.govmail.ca.gov (be
        sure to use the dropdown to choose AB849 and click the
        SUPPORTING  (or opposing, if you must) button before you
        submit the form.
        \_ Come on, just call it gay marriage -moderate/liberal
           \_ there is quite the busy signal on that number, but that's
              what the Governator's phone system calls it.  --Jon
        \_ Arnold has to hate this bill.  He's probably pro-gay marriage,
           but I doubt he wants to alienate a chunk of his base by signing
           it. Not to meantion, it's over ruling a proposition. (Arnie
           loves the props) Plus he's got other things he's far more
           worried about. I don't doubt that he will sign or veto the bill
           entirely based on this poll.
           \_ don't forget pissing off Maria who 100% knows what the future is
              going to be (anti-gay-marriage laws are unconstitutional)
              \_ Which constitution (state or fed)?
                 If the answer is state - note that the state constitution
                 will probably be amended in almost every state.
                 If the answer is federal - I'd like to hear your
                 constitutional argument.
        \_ The citizens of California already overwhelming expressed their
           opinion in Proposition 22.  You would think the left would have
           learned their lessons in 2004.
           \_ We'll see which one is ruled unconstitutional, then.
              And, funny thing, the left doesn't look at preventing
              people from their due civil rights as a lesson.

9/7     "The three top jobs at the Federal Emergency Management Agency under
        President Bush went to political cronies with no apparent experience
        coping with catastrophes"
        http://www.nydailynews.com/news/wn_report/story/344004p-293718c.html
        \_ What no one here seems to understand is that FEMA has always been
           an idiotic and inept agency run by the cronies of whoever is in
           power at the time.  It has never been different.  I was shocked
           that so many other people were shocked at how poorly FEMA handled
           their duties until I realised that most people don't understand
           that FEMA has never been any different.
                \_ Then why did the (governor of Lousiana?) get the head of
                   FEMA under Clinton to help out?
           \_ "FEMA has always been an idiotic and inept agency"
           \_ so, you think it is a good idea to install another cronies
                after 9/11 when entire US is under terrorist threat?
                you are very funny.
           \_ This is so much partisan bullshit I can't believe it.
              "FEMA has always been an idiotic and inept agency"
              Who the fuck are you, man?
              Who are you, man?
              http://www.fema.gov/about/history.shtm
              "In 1993, President Clinton nominated James L. Witt as the new
              FEMA director. Witt became the first agency director with
              experience as a state emergency manager."
              \_ exactly.  thanks for making my point.  so one time for one
                 term this one agency had a director who became the *first*
                 such directory with experience in the field.  and you believe
                 this somehow magically makes FEMA into a great and well
                 functioning .org until the other party gets in power?  Geeze,
                 talk about partisan bullshit.  Except I *can* believe it since
                 this is the motd.  I don't expect reason, logic, common sense.
                 I do expect people with a political axe to grind, an agenda
                 to push and an insanely deep faith in the perfection of the
                 government (esp if it's federal level) followed by endless
                 rants about evil and/or incompetence when something doesn't
                 go right federally with excuses made for any local official
                 as long as the local is from the same party as the ranter.
                 \_ "He initiated sweeping reforms that streamlined disaster
                    relief and recovery operations, insisted on a new
                    emphasis regarding preparedness and mitigation, and
                    focused agency employees on customer service."
                    So, do you know what happened to the Veterans
                    Administration after the appointment of an experienced
                    leader?
                    Your label of me as someone who has "an insanely deep faith
                    in the perfection of the government" is even more
                    incredible partisan bullshit.
                    Let's get back to something concrete:
                    Do you know what happened to the VA after the appointment
                    of an experience leader?
                    of an experience leader? -jblack
        \_ With very few exceptions all government agencies are very slow
           and mostly inept. FEMA is like the DMV of emergency management.
           That said, the group of people most responsible for this
           disaster are the citizens of NO that stayed in a below-sea-level
           bowl with an approaching category 5 hurricane (20 ft storm
           surge and 160+ mph winds).  Certainly you have compassion on
           the small fraction of elderly that were incapable of leaving,
           but besides them, these morons of NO created a massive
           humanitarian disaster that the US taxpayer now has to pay to
           clean up.  Next in the line of blame are the inept local and
           state officials.  There is a very specific chain of command
           in disaster response which starts with local authorities. By law
           Federal government can only respond at the request of a state,
           \_ Are you just stupid? How many times to we have to tell you?
              The state DID put in a request for federal assistance.
           \_ Are you just stupid Justin? How many times to we have to tell
              you? The state DID put in a request for federal assistance.
              And it was clearly spelled out that state and local
              officials don't have sufficient resources to deal with
              the disaster. You can't blame them. When a category 4
              hurricane wipes out your emergency services, you're kind
              of dependent on outside help.
              \_ A state of emergency was declared on Saturday August
                 27th by the President.  FEMA rescue and medical squads
                 were prepositioned then for the disaster.  What you
                 \_ FEMA squads were given 48 hours to get 1000 people
                    there.  That order came down on MONDAY AFTERNOON.
                    Two days after the president's emergency declaration.
                    Just to be exact on what you apparently meant by "then"...
                 seem to miss is the FEMA/Fed is NOT a first responder.
                 I had not heard of the destruction of ALL of LA's emergency
                 services, national guard, and homeland security
                 resources, what did they do station them on a Gulf beach
                 to act as a sea wall?  Its interesting that all of
                 NO was essentially intact after Katrina came through and
                 yet all of these resources were magically "wiped out".
                 I restate my position: the state
                 and local authorities criminally failed to execute their
                 emergency response plans.
                 \_ 1. It doesn't matter if the federal government declared
                    or "pre-positioned" anything because in the end, they
                    failed to act in a timely manner and did jack shit.
                    2. National Guard and Homeland Security are federal
                    agencies 3. NOLA being the largest city in LA, a large
                    enough portion of their emergency services were disabled
                    to warrant outside help. What was left of LA's resources
                    was insufficient. 4. Feds ARE the next responders when
                    state/local services are incapacitated. 4.  "all of NO was
                    essentially intact"? Can I have some of whatever you're
                    smoking? 5. Your position that local authorities acted
                    criminally is a blatant attempt to mask the complete
                    ineptitude of federal authorities who were specifically
                    requested to help. You know, kind of like when you dial
                    911 during an emergency when you are in some way
                    incapacitated and need help? You would expect someone to
                    show up, not have them sit around their ass complaining
                    that you haven't given yourself CPR.
                    that you haven't given yourself CPR. -jblack
                    \_ You've been trolled by jblack. Dumb ass.
                       \_ but jblack is being serious isn't he?
                    \_ Exactly what emergency services are you are referring
                       to as 'destroyed'?  The city was intact after
                       Katrina.   You do realize the levies did not break
                       until the following morning, right?
                       There were 140 school buses subsequently submerged
                       under water 1 mile from the Superdome after the
                       1 mile from the Superdome after the
                       flood.  Don't you think
                       maybe just maybe those kind of resources should
                       have been mobilized and prepositioned for use in
                       the case of flooding?  Don't you think the
                       disappearance of 1/3 of NO police force is suspect?
                       The remaining police officers didn't even have
                       enough ammunition.
                       Isn't it possible that the city should have
                       prepositioned MREs and water somewhere above sea
                       level to feed people it sends to emergency shelters?
                       What you have is negligence
                       to put any plan whatsoever into action on the part
                       of the local authorities and consequently
                       the city descended into anarchy.  The Feds showed up
                       when they are supposed to and when they always
                       have in the past - within 96 hours.  Throwing up
                       your hands, crying, running around like a headless
                       chicken and accusing the CIA of
                       trying to kill you ala Blanco and Nagin is not
                       the execution of an emergency plan.
                       the execution of an emergency plan.  You are
                       projecting responsibilities and authority to
                       the Federal govt it was never legally assigned.  The
                       state and local authorities knew this and if they
                       failed to prepare for a fairly obvious disaster
                       scenario it is their fault. -jblack
                       scenario it is their fault.
           FEMA is not a first-responder,
           and FEMA does not have any military police powers to put down
           an insurrection.  The anarchy that erupted in the 1st 72 hrs
           falls squarely at the feet of Blanco and Nagin who criminally
           failed to execute their own emergency evacuation plans, as
           required by LA law.  Lastly, the Federal government dropped
           the ball and should have recognized the scale of the impending
           disaster because of the incompetence of the local authorities.
           Moral of the story: people who rely of the government to
           rescue them from a telegraphed natural disaster are going
           to be disappointed.
           to be disappointed. -jblack
           \_ Your Honor, she deserved to be raped.  She was asking for it.
           \_ I would rely on government to prevent 90% of New Orleans from
              being flooded with damage reportedly costing 4x over the
              9/11 tragedy.
              Am I disappointed?  Yes.  Could both the federal and state
              government have done a better job (within reason)?  Yes.
              I would also say FEMA was in charge pre-Dubya, and was arguably
              strong and effective under Clinton.  Dubya weakened FEMA and
              transferred primary responsibility for natural disasters to the
              states.  If a state can't hack it, then is it Dubya's fault for
              not ensuring a proper transition, or the state's fault for
              dropping the ball?
              I already know what your opinion is, as you do mine.
           \_ Let's get back to the original post:
              How experienced was the head of FEMA under Clinton?
              Under Dubya?

           affected by Floyd "Federal Disaster Areas" so the National Guard and

           How about this dope's own father during Hurricane Andrew? Once again,
           President Bush (41) -- August, 1992 -- was in the midst of a bruta
           campain for re-election. Yet, he cut off his campaigning the day
           before and went to Washington where he maritaled
           the largest military operation on US soil in soil in history.
           He sent in 7,000 National Guard and 22,000 regular military
           personnel, and all the gear to begin the clean up within
           before and went to

President Bush (41) -- August, 1992 -- was in the midst of a brutal campaign
for re-election. Yet, he cut off his campaigning the day before and went to
Washington where he martialed the largest military operation on US soil in
history. He sent in 7,000 National Guard and 22,000 regular military
personnel, and all the gear to begin the clean up within hours after Andrew
passed through Florida. 'Cause, you know, those people and their stuff was

                    a determination re constitutionality
                 2. the executive (state and fed) is a co-equal branch
                    of gov w/ the legislature and the cts
                 3. it is a judicial decree (marbury v madison) that
                    says that the scotus is the final arbiter re con-
                    situtionality (fed).
                 4. one ought to be free to wonder why a co-equal br-
                    anch, the executive, ought to accept this.
                 \_ What I meant was, _if_ he really really for true wanted to
                    sign this, then he should have signed it, and let the
                    courts do their job.  He's trying, lamely, to have it both

                       could not to determine whether a particular act was
                       constitutional.
                       My point is that there is no basis for this assertion.
                       Neither the federal nor state constitutions preclude
                       the executive from making determinations re
                       constitutionality of legislative acts.
                       At least on the federal level the ONLY authority for
                       the supremacy of the judiciary over the executive re
                       constitutional interpretation comes from the
                       judiciary (see marbury).

        \_ Big deal.  John Edwards was preaching class warfare last week.
                \_ I love it when Republicans say stuff like "We give a
                   big tax cut for dividends and the Democrats turn it into
                   class warfare"
                        \_ If nothing else, they are masters of pre-emptively
                           taking away their opponents position so that all
                           the other side can say is "Nuh uh, you are!"

        \_ The National Guard is under the control of the LA Governor.  Take
           this kind of story to freerepublic.
           \_ And I'll bet somehow, it's Clinton's fault.

9/7     Hi sodans.  I have a question.  My sewage line got backed up, I called
        the plumbers, but when they turned on their equipment, they were
        swarmed by bees and ran away.  The bees are coming from my neighbor's
        rain gutter.  Who should pay for bee removal?  It costs money here
        since the bees are in a building structure.  The bees don't bother
        anyone unless they use loud equipment.  Thanks.
        \_ are you serious?  Should I laugh or feel for you?
           \_ hey man, I downloaded some core files, and brown stuff overflowed
              to the tub drain when I flushed.  i can't do a #2 until the
              sewage line gets cleared, can't do that until the neighbors get
              rid of the bee problem.
              \- um rather than see this as an abstract matter of law, it's
                 possible there is some city rule about this. you might call
                 "the city" to inquire. but it does sound like a legal
                 hypothetical. except we would have something like a
                 backhoe driver who was allergic to bees going into
                 anaphylactic shock and cutting off somebody's internet
                 connection who then suffered day trading losses while going
                 through a divorce with a handicapped spouse. --psb
                 through a divorce with a handicapped spouse.
              \_ sorry about that.  I wasn't sure if you were serious.
        \_ What did your neighbor say when you told him you are being
           attacked his 'his' bees? I think it is his responsibility to
           pay. Did he refuse?
           \_ Oh, yeah, what are you gonna do? Release the dogs? Or the bees?
              Or the dogs with bees in their mouth and when they bark, they
              shoot bees at you?
        \_ Call the local beekeeper's association.  Tell them you have a
           hive that needs to be moved.  They will probably be able to have
           someone come and pick up the hive for free.  Also trying to get
           your neighbor to pay is lame.  Bees exist.  These sorts of things
           are noones fault.
           \_ The bees are actually 15 feet above ground, flying out of the
              ~ 3" x 5" opening of his rain gutter .  I suppose I can pay for
              half ...
           \_ It's not about fault. It's about responsibility. It's his
              property. You can't just do it. He needs to. You can offer
              to help pay, but legally it is the neighbor's problem. Like
              the person below says, they are a public nuisance.
        \_ Call your neighbor. If you get no action, call the city. Bees
           can be classified as a public nuisence. You'll need the city's
           permission to remove the hive if your neighbor is unwilling to
           to do anything about it. As for actual removal, see above or
           check Bee Removal in yellow pages/google.
           \- let slip the bees of war
           \_ A bee hive is worth money. Many bee removal places will do
              it for free.
              \_ If it is inside of a structure no one will do it for
                 free. If you find someone who does then post the name.
                 I've had bees several times. Even the county won't do it
                 free if it's up high.
                 \- #ifdef LIBERTARIAN_FRUITCAKE, you may wish to
                    read "The fable of the bees."

        \_ bees are so cool.  i wish i had bees.  i got all the gear.  but i'm not
           gonna tear up your neighbor's house for them, no way.  the workers need
           to just chill and learn to live with bees crawling all over them! -jnat

              bridge last time i drove from SF to Berkeley. I think if
              everybody did that, it would cause problems. i have to go now.
