few weekends ago, I joined a group organized by the California Nurses Association to promote SB562: Healthcare for All. The basic idea seemed a good one. We would get a bunch of volunteers together and they would knock on doors in a designated community. The message to those who answered the knock was about SB562 […]
Michael Hertz: The court had stopped allowing service by certified mail because too many defendants refused to sign the certificate, or the wrong person signed it.
Michael Hertz: What promises to be a really interesting fight will pit Nancy Pelosi against challenger Stephen Jaffe.
Michael Hertz: Apparently unsatisfied, Obama has recently put himself on the market to be paid $400,000 for each speech that he makes.
Michael Hertz: We have a shortage of doctors, Medicare is running out of money, and seniors are suffering from a lack of resources for their retirement.
The Trump scandal has developed with nearly the speed of light, and it makes Nixon’s Watergate or Clinton’s Whitewater almost childish.
If the California system were medically efficient, even wealthy Californians would use the local services and would go elsewhere only if the local service were deficient.
One of the greatest things about our modern political world is that you and other progressives can have an impact on elections even if you live thousands of miles away.
Michael T. Hertz: The message delivered by Daryl Davis and Bernie Sanders is a simple one. Don’t spend your time “preaching to the choir.” Reach out beyond the group that will readily agree with you.
Michael Hertz: Although the Clinton sources have denied that Bill Clinton urged the Donald to run, if Bill presented in favorable terms a Donald White House run, then he was basically supporting that option.
Michael T. Hertz: Don’t be fooled into thinking that you must vote for Hillary if you live in a state like Hawaii, California, New York, Rhode Island, etc. A vote for Hillary or Trump in those states is meaningless. Hillary is going to sweep those states.
Michael T. Hertz: I’d prefer to vote for Bernie Sanders, but at least if I vote for Stein, my vote will be counted and will have some impact on perceptions of the race. If I vote for Bernie, at best he will be lumped in with “other.”
Michael Hertz: I talked to a very low-level person volunteer who said that he thought that this would be a good idea but he would have to talk to the higher ups. The higher ups never called me back, and so far as I know, there wasn’t a really good sharing system ever set up.
