SORT BY Relevancy
MA is not CA, but this elwection at least, we get a plethora of ballot questions. In our case, the excess is four votes that qualified for Nov. 4th.
Tune in for truth and knowledge (at least in our best cuts).
Three questions have roaring proponents and opponents. Legally granting earned sick time for employees is not so controversial; in fact, doing that seems like enacting child-labor laws. The others are hot.
Question 1 is in the Taxachusetts fantasy world. It would stop the law that index gas taxes to inflation. The don't-tax-me-bro crowd really wants this.
Questino 2 would expand our low-rent nickel bottle depost to include non-carbonated water and such. The veberage folk predict the end of the world if that passes.
Question 3 would prohibit casinos in the commonwealth. The gaming (a.k.a gambl;ing) commission just awarded a license for one of three. The drama continues.
The airways are clogged. Mailers clutter doors and slots. Rhktoric is sizzling. You might not be surprised to learn that we have opinions.

Today on "It's My House" we shall be discussing "voting distinctions". Most people only know about "Ballot Box" voting, however many people do not know about "Access/Vested Interest Voting". When you Ballot Box vote you have no say so on issues BEFORE you vote and you can only cast (1) vote every election cycle. In addition you are restricted to a physical geographic location.
When you "Access Vote"........aka.........."Vested Interest" voting you are not restricted to physical locations or just (1) vote. You can "vote" in many ways, which gives you "access" which is something that the average Ballot Box voter never has.
California's ballot proposition process was meant to give the people more of a say in legislation, but the process has become entirely corrupted by money and special interests. Proposition language makes the proposals sound like good ideas, but like the legendary Trojan Horse, buried within the legalese are often provisions that have entirely different consequences. And lately, when a bad idea proposition is enacted in one state, thanks to organizations like ALEC, they tend to pop up on ballots all over the country.
Proposition 46 is billed as a patient safety act, by requiring physicians to undergo drug and alcohol testing. But there's more to it than that.

State laws mandating these public-owned broadband networks get voter approval through referendum campaigns used to mean near-certain death for any project. Kiss those days goodbye! Meet the winners who have turned the tide.
November 4, EIGHT towns and counties all passed ballot initiatives to return the authority to pursue broadband to their constituents. With 70% or more of the vote. Predominately Democrat or Republican didn’t matter. How did they do that!? Representatives of Boulder, Rio Blanco, San Miguel, Yuma County and other communities give us the scoop on how they pulled off these big wins.
We’re going to find out:
Are the political winds blowing heavily community broadband’s way?
At the local level, is broadband now a bipartisan issue?
What tactics were effective getting these referenda passed?
What happened to the giant telcos and cable companies?
What comes next for these communities?
Will there be a flood of communities rolling out their own ballot initiatives?
As candidates ponder strategies to end violence and bring economic opportunities to depressed urban communities, many are proposing to increase the police presence in high crime areas. But given the recent high profile shooting deaths of citizens at the hands of police, will residents of low income communities feel safer or more endangered by an increase of police? What can really transform urban communities - elected leadership that can initiate new and creative ideas to generate a prosperous economy? Or the launching of a paramilitary force that mturns every low income community into a police state? Does anybody believe that those who choose to commit unlawful acts would do something else if given viable options for survival? Is rehabilitation possible? Or is police confrontation inevitable? today, more candidates discuss their plans to resolve the crises of crime and poverty. Rev. Cassandra Harris, candidate for Alderman of the 18th Ward in Chicago, discusses her candidacy. What will be used to change urban communities, the Ballot or the Bullet?
We are a Republic, no matter how the Establishment Progressives try to tell you differently. Why are the voters voting for so many ballot issues? Is that a good thing? MO State Rep Paul Curtman will be my guest in the 8am hour!
Changing minds every day of the week!
