Radical Plan To Split California Into Three States Earns Spot On November Ballot, John Myers, LA Times

CS Commentary: Bottom line? Vote ‘No.’ The plan will result in three times as much CA power in the US Congress and only one of the ‘new’ states would have a chance of going Republican. It doesn’t solve any of CA’s problems and will result in huge interstate costs and potential water wars associated with any break-up. Not to mention the legislative and legal problems of whether the break-up could happen at all at both the state and national levels.

CS Commentary: CS endorses the drive for Congressional Term Limits, probably the least discussed – and most needed – issue in the nation. Congressional Term Limits would at least begin to repress the corruption and ambition currently endemic to the American Congressional system and encourage leaders to sacrifice their time to serve, as did our nation’s Founders. CS encourages everyone to sign the petition.

Sports: Justify Wins 13th Triple Crown Of Horse Racing, You Tube/NBC; Simply Perfect: Justify Wins The Triple Crown, Melissa Hoppert, NY Times; When Will Triple Crown Winner Justify Race Again? Baltimore Sun

CS Commentary: The last four horses to win the Triple Crown: Secretariat 1973, Seattle Slew 1977, Affirmed 1978, and after 37 years American Pharoah in 2015. One can make a case that Triple Crown winners have been prescient to subsequent events in American life and culture: Secretariat, named by a secretary and owned by a woman, foreshadowed the rise of the women’s movement and women in the job market and corporate life; Seattle Slew presaged the rise of Seattle as a rock music capital and corporate center; Affirmed, affirmed America in its heyday as the stock and real estate markets rose through the 1980’s, 90’s and 2000’s and America again won its wars; American Pharoah foreshadowed the election of Trump, an American King and one of his first acts was to reach out to the Arab world.

If Justify wins the Triple Crown will it break America’s curse and foreshadow a return of true justice to the nation? jus·ti·fy [ˈjəstəˌfī] VERB, means to show or prove to be right or reasonable; “the person appointed has fully justified our confidence”; synonyms: give grounds for · give reasons for · [more] be a good reason for.; “the situation was grave enough to justify further investigation”; synonyms: warrant · be good reason for · be a justification for · [more] theology, declare or make righteous in the sight of God.
