Time for a good news break

Thursday, April 22, 2010, 7:01 pm |

It’s not often that you hear multiple good news stories that happen in the same day in the midst of the seemingly chronic bad-news reality of California politics.

But today there were three good — or at least not bad — news events that caught my eye:

First, the tricky bill in the California State Senate that would pave the way for homosexual “marriages” on a future ballot (SB 906) didn’t come up for a vote Thursday. This means you have more time to call and email your opposition

Second, the Democrat-controlled California State Assembly has voted to confirm liberal Republican Abel Maldonado as Lieutenant Governor. As you probably know, Maldonado supported Harvey Milk Gay Day and voted for big tax hikes last year. This year, he coauthored the anti-free speech resolution ACR 82. How would have you voted on Maldonaldo’s confirmation? Ironically, it can be seen as good news. Because if the Senate also confirms him next week, Maldonado will be out of the Legislature. He won’t be able to vote for any more of the Democrats’ anti-family bills. And a much more pro-family state senator could be elected to replace him.

Third, the selfish and oppressive power of California’s humongous government-employee unions is being realized across the political spectrum. On Thursday, liberal Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said existing pension structures were “unsustainable.” Also on Thursday, sometimes-fiscally-conservative Arnold Schwarzenegger called overly-generous government employee pensions “the single biggest threat to our fiscal health and California’s future.” Understand California’s pension crisis

Now, don’t get me wrong. There’s more bad news than good in California, because most people, and definitely most politicians, dishonor God and His ways. And I personally believe people will have to experience more pain before they’ll change themselves, their family values, and their voting habits.
