Get the petition.
They need one million signatures before April 20 to get it back on the November ballot. If you're in California, print out the petition and start drumming up support today. It's not so often you get a second chance like this. Show the country that California does indeed, rock.
Prop 22 looks to be passing in a landslide. I thought we were better than this (the Vote2000 site
is a great resource though).
Oh my, this
is one of the most surprising bits of info I've seen in a while. I've had disagreements with my dad
before, but it wasn't like he went out and started a proposition against me
. We talked about prop 22 a couple weeks ago
, but what I didn't know until today is that the guy behind it, Republican state senator Pete Knight
has a gay son that he doesn't speak with, and his son feels the proposition is rooted their private family conflict

The most disgusting things I've seen in California this year are the parents against
a student group
and Propsition 22
. Last night, I saw that support for prop 22 was leading
in the polls, which I find incomprehensible. The LA Times has a summary of what religious leaders think
about it, and there's a protest against the proposition by 400 clergymen
this weekend. If even these guys have problems with it, why would the average citizen support it? Hopefully reason will win out on this one, but unfortunately, if you haven't already registered to vote in CA, it's too late for this primary election
