    I just heard on The Maddow show by the substitute host that we can pass a Constitutional amendment to protect union rights.  So that's what I can do, work on that for this next election cycle.  We'll need to do something similar to protect abortion rights, and protect whatever else these crazed people will foist on us before the end of the year in their lame duck congress- their lame f#&king congress.

    The 'shift' is hitting the fan.

      Don't rerun Prop 2. An initiated statute requires only 8% of voters sign the petition (as opposed to 5% for a veto referendum, which is not an option here, or 10% for an amendment), but it's permanently protected from revision without a 3/4 majority in both chambers. It's an amendment in all but name. A narrowly tailored statute initiative to repeal this bill would entirely prevent its re-enactment, but would be clear to voters what they are voting on.
