    Unless you already have (Props!), Please vote Tuesday!

    And if you're in California, remember, YES on Prop. 6! And No on 12.

    Thanks you.

    I just got back from voting. Pleasantly surprised to see so many people at my polling place in the middle of the day for a mid term election.

    Just finishing up my analysis of the 12 propositions on the CA ballot, props 11 and 12 are great examples of why people shouldn't be voting on this crap.

    Prop 11 is about emergency responders. On the surface it seems like a no-brainer. It makes law what is already true, that EMT and paramedics remain on call during their state-mandated break times. This saves the ambulance company from the costs of doubling up for quick responses or lowering response times by sending an ambulance from further away if the closest crew is on break.

    But the CA Supreme Court recently ruled that labor law applies to security guards. In other words, meals and breaks are inalienable and security guards can be unreachable during those times. The industry is already facing a class action suit about the same exact issue. There is basically one company outside of municipalities that run ambulances--AMR. And it is AMR who is solely funding this prop. The prop enshrines the status quo, and even sweetens the deal requiring training likely to catch a voter's eye. But here's the thing--they already get all of that training.

    EMTs and Paramedics actually agree this is an issue and their union has been open in negotiating a fix. The two sides even helped try and get a law passed to amend this problem. There were two sticking points: whether having to respond would include less serious calls and whether the new law should void any class action lawsuits seeking compensation for labor violations.

    So guess what? Buried in the law that enshrines the status quo is a clause that essentially makes AMR immune from payouts if it is determined they violated labor laws in the past by forcing employees to work on their breaks. In other words, it makes them immune from the current class action lawsuit. AMR is spending $22 million to save themselves $100 million.

    2/11 on the winning side of the Propositions. Pretty good election for me.

    Looks like it was a pretty good turnout, for a midterm, in a lot of places. Good work everyone!

    We voted down all the Democrat endorsed tax hikes and then elected a Democrat governor, House, and Senate that want to raise taxes and supported the propositions.

    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    Our state voted against energy deregulation by a wide margin but voted for mandating our monopoly to have 50% of our energy be renewable by 2030.

    Our state is solidly blue now. Governor and senators. I'm ok with it. Dean Heller is a shyster. Healthcare was the #1 issue in my state as to why we voted out the incumbent.

    It's because you have a large metro area that is going to dominate everything else.

    The same thing has happened here, most of the State is solidly red but the idiots in the Denver metro area dominate everything for the rest of the state.

    It sucks but it's the way it is. I will probably move once my kids graduate high school because I don't recognize this place anymore.

    I left California for a reason and we're doing the same idiocy here.

    that's actually a logical decision. If you're gonna mandate renewable by 2030 then you're best to deal with one provider. Not that I think such an arbitrary number is sensible ...
