My Federal Lawsuit against the City of Los Angeles

On January 13, 2015, I filed a lawsuit in United States District Court against the City of Los Angeles.

It is my first time suing the City of Los Angeles, but I have a sneaking suspicion that it won't be my last.

Why did I file suit? There are several reasons....

1) The City prevented me from running as a candidate in a small local election, even though I had been a candidate for major political office in that district twice within the last 5 years. The City kicks far too many people out of elections. I feel this is unproductive and un-American. It robs the citizens and the voters of more choices and options at the ballot box. I feel that this is an infringement on voting rights in general.

2) The City has a bad habit of making up their own rules and acting in a tyrannical fashion. The City needs to be cured of that bad habit.

and 3) The City has rules and ordinances that are wild violations of the Constitution and various other protections afforded by the Bill of Rights. The liberals in this City do not have the power to ban or eliminate things they find politically offensive.

My prediction on how this will pan out?

I think the City and I will go back and forth for about a year. Eventually they will offer me a small financial stipend for my troubles and offer to change the wording of the ordinance mentioned in the lawsuit. As it is now, it will be very difficult for the City to defend an Ordinance that grants unlimited voting and election freedoms to wealthy property owners, while denying those privileges to others who do not own property.

I just don't see a judge or jury buying their side of the argument.

25 years ago today....

25 years ago today this man said goodbye.
I can't imagine what our world would look like without him.

Mid - December Update

There is a reason I haven't been posting on my blog much anymore.

Actually, several reasons....

I took a new job in March that was more time-consuming. I have had less time to write and follow political issues.

Another reason is that my blog had limited readership. I think I'm only up to 250,000 hits after four years and over 1,000 posts.

I think I get a bigger impact from my efforts on Facebook and Twitter.

So I've been spending more of my time there.

Yet another reason is that I might be done, politically speaking.

I have been looking at the 2014 election races and I do not see a good spot for me that would either give me a better result than my loss in 2012 to Congressman Adam Schiff, or that would help to build my name recognition for a future victory.

I wanted to be an elected official and rise to a very high position, but that might not happen.

I am reviewing my options and will be choosing my path for 2014 soon.

Thank You, President Reagan!!

For all my friends who are thanking Veterans for their service today, I would like to remind you that those Veterans act under orders from their commanding officers, and for better or for worse, they bear the direct brunt of decisions made by those leaders. Today I would like to thank my former Commander-in-Chief Ronald Reagan for his moral leadership. He decided to make our military the strongest on earth....so strong, in fact, that no sane enemy would want to fight us. Because of him, hundreds of millions of people today are free from the suffocating yoke of Communism. And massive numbers of service members who were prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice... never had to face a single bullet fired at them in anger.

I will be grateful for that for the rest of my life.
