Flying Pigs Edition: The California State Legislature passes a bill with which I wholeheartedly agree!

Ever heard of the National Defense Authorization Act, or NDAA?  This is federal law signed by President Obama last year in the dead of night that gave him authorization to have any American arrested without cause and held indefinitely.  Quite a violation of several Constitutional Amendments and the writ of Habeas Corpus if ever I saw it.

In response to these clearly unconstitutional provisions in the NDAA, I'll be dipped in sh** if the California State Senate passed by a bi-partisan vote of 37-0, and the California State Assembly passed by a bipartisan vote of 71-1, a bill that tells President Obama and the rest of the federal government that the aforementioned provisions of the NDAA will not be allowed to be enforced or executed in the state of California.

The only question now is if our illustrious Governor, "Moonbeam" Jerry Brown, will sign the bill into law.

OK, also, I would like to know who that one member of the Assembly is that voted No.

The no vote in the assembly was by Rocky J. Chavez (R) District 76 in San Diego. His district is very military centric, and he is apparently voting in a manner that he believes protects his military constituents from enemies both foreign and domestic. I suspect he knows that his vote wouldn't make or break the bill, so he's trying to play both sides of the fence.
