    Does Rose even have time for acting when she's operating a bunch of GOP sockpuppet accounts on the internet like every other troll?

    Considering she hasn't been in anything in years, no.

    Don't they like, hate celebrities? I guess they still can considering she's about as much of a celebrity as Scott Baio is nowadays, and about as relevant.

    When do we get Ja Rule's take on the affairs of the day? That's what I really want to know.

    I believe Ja Rule is busy planning Frye Festival 2.0, with special web commentary by Donald Trump.

    Advanced marketing teaches us; If you're a sucker for one grift, you're more likely to be a sucker for all kinds of grifts. I mean there's very profitable algorithms that model this behavior.

    /not sarcasm: TIL: Ja Rule is trying to sell NFTs from the Frye Festival.

    Newsom doesn't have that kind of power. That would need to be done by the state legislature (which, to be fair, I'm pretty sure is already looking to update the process).

    They hate celebrities until the celebrities agree with them and then they love them. Just like they love cops until the cops come after them like in the Capitol Insurrection and then they hate cops.

    They'd fuckin better. Whole thing needs to be redone -

    1.5M signatures to trigger a recall is fairly trivial, theshhold needs to be proportionally higher with the population of the state.
    Needs to be a mechanism to vote for the current governor even if you vote against the recall
    Regardless of the above, if a recall is successful, the only way that the governor should be replaces is if one of the recall candidates meets a minimum threshhold of votes (either a raw total, or a proportional amount compared to what the recalled governor won previously)

    The CA Republican parties recall shenanigans are pointless and hugely expensive/wasteful. Which is amusing since this is a party that claims to be about fiscal conservatism as they're more than happy to blow money on longshot recall attempts to get one of their own in power for less than a year before they'll likely be replaced anyways.

    It's proportional to the number of votes cast. Specifically, to recall the governor you need 12% of the votes cast in their election to initiate the process. That 12% also needs to include at least 1% of the total votes cast in each of at least five different counties.

    12% of votes cast ain't shit, it should absolutely be much higher. Like, set it at the number of votes received by the current governor in the last election. So it's an actual recall from voters and not a pointless waste of everyone's time and money threatening to replace the current governor with someone who may have received only a fraction of the votes the outgoing governor won with.

    Well that feels way too high. Though I agree that the process by which his successor is chosen is a steaming load of hot bullshit. Hell, there's no reason to even have a separate election at all; just do the same thing that happens if he dies or resigns and promote the Lt. Governor if he gets recalled.

    I don’t think they need to fuss around with it even that much.

    Just make them hold an entirely new election wherein the winner has to get 51% of the popular vote. The more straightforward, equitable and democracy-based a system is, the more trouble the GOP seem to have winning in it. When technicalities and subsections start being introduced is when they start to find ways to slide in.

    The CA Republican parties recall shenanigans are pointless and hugely expensive/wasteful. Which is amusing since this is a party that claims to be about fiscal conservatism as they're more than happy to blow money on longshot recall attempts to get one of their own in power for less than a year before they'll likely be replaced anyways.
    Hollow power grabs are about the only thing the GOP has left these days

    Coutesy of Dr. Ashish K. Jha and why we shouldn't put a DeSantis clone as California's governor.

    Consider our times: "not fucking up" and "not being a creep" are already serious qualifications.
    It's a sad commentary that I considered his post to be a quite convincing endorsement.

Not the the thousands upon thousands of slaves who's forebearers were taken from their homes, packed so tightly onto ships they could barely move, sold like cattle, forcibly bred with one another to make strong babies, women and girls raped by their masters, beaten/killed if they tried to escape and finally worked until their dying breath. Ya those people don't deserve any reparations but the people who did all that to them totally deserve it.

    So beyond the fact that Larry Elder is the living embodiment of Samuel L. Jackson's character Stephen from Quentin Taratino's Django Unchained there are other reasons that Larry Elder is a piece of crap. He believes that minimum wage should be gotten rid of(real surprise there with his views on slavery) and that all Covid restrictions should be removed and no one should need to get a vaccine because well over 660 thousand Americans and growing dead is not a really big deal. He probably has other beliefs and traits that make him a horrible politician but these three are enough for me to never vote for him.

    Larry Elder can fuck right off. He is a fucking disgrace. Civil rights activists like John Lewis and MLK didn't do everything they did just so ignorant fucks like this can undo all the progress that has been made. He is nothing but a GQP sock puppet.

    FUCK this guy pisses me off so much.

    On 09/08, NYT was estimating a turnout of at least 50% of CA registered voters.

    As of today, it looks like the turnout may hit 70%. Not quite the 79.5% 2020 turnout. However, pretty amazing for an off the calendar election.

    Do you have a link for those numbers? (I don't doubt them, it's just nice to be able to point to a specific source.)

    Higher turnout is gonna be a boon for Newsom and a thorn in the side of Elder. Not that he'll care, he's gonna contest any results that don't successfully recall Newsom and elect him.

    As is the case, we implore you…our fellow citizens…to join us in this fight as you are able, primarily by signing our petition demanding a special session of the California legislature to investigate and ameliorate the twisted results of this 2021 Recall Election of Governor Gavin Newsom.
    feel like the only fraud, was him knowingly taking people's money if he knew he couldn't win
    "Law and Order", lots of places have had that, Russia, North Korea, Saddam's Iraq.
    Laws can be made to enforce order of cruelty and brutality.
    Equality and Justice, that is how you have peace and a society that benefits all.

    I'm hoping that this is the case, and that it's not a surge of GOP voters who don't usually cast a vote for governor because they know their guy could never win in an honest election.

    The plus side here is that, unlike Trump's shaky attempts of claiming fraud in sympathetic states like Arizona and Georgia or hoping to tool out power through appointed judges, the legislative body of California will give zero fucks about Elder's claims of fraud should the recall attempt fail.
