One Year Later...

It's been exactly one year since my last post, which much like all of 2014, was a bit of downer.

Politically, the year ended pretty well with the Republican tidal wave in Congress.  I somehow get the feeling, though, the GOP congressional leadership under John Boehner and Mitch McConnell are going to screw everything up.  Their handling of Obama's unconstitutional immigration legislation certainly hasn't given me much confidence in them.

Unfortunately, the Republican tidal wave across the country barely touched California.  Moonbeam won reelection as governor, Republicans again failed to win a state-wide office, and over 900 new and largely liberty undermining laws have been added to the books.  The only real positive thing that happened in California in 2014 was the Democrats losing their super-majority in the State Senate.

And, oh yeah, my friend Matthew Harper was elected to the State Assembly. Matt, I think, is someone to keep an eye on for state-wide office.

Whether this is my only posting for the year, I can't say.  Facebook and Twitter have pretty much replaced what I started with this blog over ten years ago.  I'm on Twitter almost every day, so if you happen to be interested in anything I have to say, you can follow me at @catholiclawyer.
