Name to remake court docket
proves Lee is unfit

Re: “Lee urges an overhaul of Supreme Courtroom” (Web page B3, Might 23).

In her name to “overhaul” the U.S. Supreme Courtroom Barbara Lee follows the playbook of typical South American dictators: First, vilify the courts with baseless accusations, then stack the legislative our bodies with like-minded cronies, after which stack the court docket with hand-chosen puppets. Subsequent Lee can be saying how the U.S. Structure must be “modernized,” which might’t occur till the Supreme Courtroom is firmly below the management of Congress.

The separation of powers is a pillar of our democracy, with out which the ruling social gathering beneficial properties limitless energy. It’s Lee and the progressives who’re the very actual and sinister risk to our democracy, who need to silence any opposition and put extra energy into the arms of the federal autocrats.

Lee is unfit for any political place, and it could be a terrific travesty if Gov. Gavin Newsom appointed her to interchange Sen. Dianne Feinstein.

Why weren’t staff
in Mason case charged?

Re: “Probe coming in dying of younger woman” (Web page A1, Might 24).

Thanks for investigating the horrible dying of this youngster. The query is why there aren’t any prison costs towards the three social staff who ignored the state of affairs?

There have been different circumstances, not this unhealthy, with youngster protecting companies in California. If prison costs are filed, the misdeeds would cease.

Republicans’ debt plan
depends on chaos and lies

Just a little civics lesson as regards the debt ceiling:

Any spending that might be proposed and voted on would come from the Home of Representatives, which is managed by the Republicans. If Kevin McCarthy and his Phi Beta Kapa Republicans don’t need any extra spending, don’t ship any spending payments to the Senate.

Additionally, the Democrats handed the debt ceiling improve thrice below Donald Trump: no theatrics though the debt elevated by $7.8 trillion below Trump.

The Republicans’ technique is theatrics, lies and chaos.

Overpopulation poses
host of worldwide threats

As we hurtle towards 8.5 billion individuals, when are we going to launch an overdue “Manhattan Mission” to curb overpopulation? Deforestation means burdened bats, carrying extra virus — one other pandemic on the best way. What does it take? When will we be taught?

Our antiquarian, agrarian tax codes, from when extra infants meant extra arms to work the household farm, half of all kids not residing previous age 4, must be revised favoring these having “one or none,” and adopting over breeding. We’ve heard “one of the best pets come from the pound.” If solely that view unfold to bipeds, we and the animals raised for consumption and companionship can be among the many few mammals not going through extinction by this century’s finish.

The patron-driven media’s blackout on overpopulation continues, pandering to advertisers whose enterprise mannequin is so weak it will depend on evermore patrons and low cost labor. But each nation with a declining birthrate enjoys excessive per capita GDP.

To cease animal torture,
stop shopping for meat

Not too long ago, the Supreme Courtroom upheld Proposition 12, an animal welfare initiative that Californians voted for in 2018. Nonetheless, Californians shouldn’t be below the phantasm that this now means the pork offered in our state is in any manner “humane.”

Pigs will proceed to be raised within the glorified torture chambers we name manufacturing facility farms. They’ll proceed to be crammed in tiny cages, simply barely much less tiny ones than earlier than. The truth is, many pigs gained’t even get that. Forty-two p.c of pork merchandise in California don’t even must adjust to Proposition 12. Objects resembling floor pork and sizzling canine are free to make use of the corpses of pigs that have been raised in gestation crates.

If Californians actually need to keep away from funding the abhorrent animal abuse rampant on this business, they need to cease shopping for animal merchandise altogether.
