Next November or two months from now the Calexit referendum will be on the California ballot. Source: East Bay Times.

I wonder who will be the first President of California, Jerry 'Moonbeam' Brown? I voted for Governor Jerry Brown in the 1976 California Democrat Presidential Primary because he drove an old Plymouth, refused to live in the Governor' Mansion, paid out of his pocket for a humble apartment and dated Linda Ronstadt.

edit: Jerry Brown was a Jesuit Priest who was either defrocked or gave up the cloth.

We already have language laws with regard to sexual harassment and race or gender disparagement, but these pertain to employer-employee relations. It is unlawful to hold someone's source of income hostage in order to sustain a hostile work environment. In this case we are dealing with clients who have nowhere else to go. Should hostility in health care be regulated by the State?

It's a profound question, and I don't know the answer except to say that the remedy will have to come from the courts through civil litigation. I don't think the State legislature is equipped to properly handle it. Perhaps we need laws that give family members standing to file suit on behalf of someone they feel is being mistreated. Maybe then we could at least establish some precedent. The courts can't legislate until someone brings a case.
