    California's Assembly Votes To Allow Communists To Hold State Jobs

    California may end a decades-old ban on members of the Communist Party working in its government, after the state Assembly approved a bill that would delete references to the party from its employment requirements.The bill's sponsor, Assemblyman Rob Bonta, D-Oakland, said that California's laws should focus on individuals' actions and evidence rather than political affiliations and what he termed "empty labels."
    Speaking on the floor of the Assembly, Bonta called the legislation a "cleanup bill that removes archaic and outdated references to the Communist Party in our state laws, specifically those stating that a public employee may be dismissed from employment if he or she advocates or is knowingly a member of the Communist Party."
    The bill passed in a 41-30 vote, after a debate that touched on the Cold War, the U.S. history of fighting communism and the potential for future conflicts.
    While Bonta called the measure "an appropriate step forward" for the state, three of his Republican colleagues in the California Assembly rose to speak against the bill, AB 22.

    Jeesh. What an outdated law. What silly opposition to this bill. How can America, "the land of the free" not allow individuals into a job because of political ideology or what political party you belong to. Bout damn time for this silly policy to get the boot in California.

    Why not? They are no longer of interest other than as a historical aberration. We are no longer at war with them.

    The follies of the young, when influenced by the left. History tends to repeat itself. 100 years ago there was a civil war fought over Communism, that when won led to decades of suffering and slaughter.

    There are reasons, still relevant today, that laws exist that prohibit Communists from holding power in the US.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    Has the news actually been received that the cold war is over and the west won? It's about time.
    You don't have to agree with me. You have every right to be wrong if you want.

    California is basically a communist state already. This does not surprise me.

    The fact is, they already hold State Jobs, and a good argument could be made they hold elected office. I guess they just want to be able to come out of the closet.

    It's actually a distinction without a difference.
    Trump is what the shrinks call the "presenting complaint."
    Trump is here because we made an existential bad bargain with China
    1975 was the last time the US had a positive trade balance.
    American students want to be "happy". Chinese students want to rule the world.

    The fact that the state government is dominated by the Democratic Party, of course. You do realize that Democrat, Socialist, Communist, Marxist, and liberal are all synonyms don't you?
