I'd still move back, politics aside.

This must be one hell of a kick in the teeth for any California school in terms of recruiting. So that means then that all California schools are unable to win a national championship. Unless the championship is moved there goes the powerhouse of UCLA

Come on people, this stunt is almost as bad as the OK Shift. Bunch of Liberal Tree Huggers making a pathetic statement to appease a few really stupid voters. This will last about as long as a good 'ole fashion case of the College Crabs!!

Bunch of liberal idiots. Better hope there are no reciprocal bans against California which depends on tourism for a good share of its revenues.  The battle against sanctuary cities and states will further erode revenues if passed. They only people hurt are the athletes who become pawns to these true idiots. I would cringe at the thought that California teams would not be able to compete for championships because some liberal desk jockeys and mouths who never played sports want to impose their agenda on others who could give a rip.

Sorry folks.....but California rocks.

Sixth largest economy in the world...
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economy_of_California

As for softball, more girls are daughters of California (by far) who have played in the WCWS than any other state.  

This ban will hopefully put pressure on some states to join the 21st century and give everyone the ability to say they are equals.

Some state will be hosting a conference in Nashville, and the room will be emptier when there are no CA state employees in it.  

California has its issues, but the reality is that it rocks!

You lost me at budget surplus.

Other than that, the fact your post has been up 34 minutes and the server hasn't crashed should tell you something. There is so much wrong with your post it defies logic. 

But it's an opinion forum and wish you all the best in the vacuum you live in.

These very key lines are inarguable (assuming that the budget projection is accurate)

Well... for anyone who cared enough to click the link and actually read the "inarguable" budget surplus article... they quickly learned that the November 17, 2016 article reported on a projection of a future surplus - not an actual, real surplus, made by one person.

And then, fast forward not so far ahead to January 10, 2017, not even two months later

http://www.latimes.com/politics/la-pol-sac-jerry-brown-budget-trump-risks-20170110-story.html

and we discover that the projected 2.8 billion dollar surplus has suddenly turned into a projected 1.6 billion dollar deficit by mid summer 2017.

And then fast forward only 4 months later on May 11, 2017...

http://www.capradio.org/articles/2017/05/11/live-blog-brown-to-release-updated-spending-plan/

Governor Says ‘Big Cuts’ Ahead For California’s Budget

Because... "California faces a $3.3 billion revenue shortfall under Gov. Jerry Brown’s updated budget for the 2017-18 fiscal year released Thursday morning at the state Capitol.

The deficit is less than the $5.8 billion shortfall Brown projected in January but still requires the state to pull back on spending. Better capital gains revenue decreased the shortfall.

“Make no doubt about it: Cuts are coming over the next few years, and they’ll be big,” Brown told reporters at a press conference."

One person projections and revised projections followed by more revised projections based upon what is actually happening makes the "inarguable" some what "arguable" I guess.

5.8 billion projected shortfall - 3.3 billion actual shortfall = 2.5 surplus in California government math! Get with it!

Do we really need a political board?  This is a thread by yet another entity that is somewhat behind the times and has provoked several comments about liberal idiots.

It is curious that this occurs among women's softball fans.  Think about it.  This is a sport that would probably not even exist were it not for the progressive elements of the country that put forward Title IX.  The same people who criticize Title IX due to its liberal leanings seem to be fans of sports that require it.

I stated earlier that this is a non-issue.  The individual states may make such laws. North Carolina did, and they immediately set out to repeal it when they saw that it cost them convention money and an all-star game.  Thus, pros and the corporate world have already said no, and they are not exactly liberal bastions.  All California did was to reinforce what courts have stated, repeatedly, and get ahead of the process to enable the public employees, like student athletes, to have the same protections as the pros insist upon.

It would be wise to shut up about this.  You will lost on this one.

Outstanding with regard to higher education.  Using the most common rankings (US News):

Six of the UCs are ranked in the top 50 universities nation-wide.

Apples to apples, they make up nearly half of the top 13 public universities in the country.  I used top 13 because US News has four schools tied at 10.

No other state is even close with regard to public higher education.

Well, other than the facts that he was born in Texas and raised in Oklahoma.

Was wondering how long it would take to get called on that.

Always fun to see moralistic faux-preening have real-world consequences.  Rock on, Cali!

The NCAA pays for postseason travel, so it's a moot point.

If Cal wants to schedule a home-and-home with Auburn, they write into the contract that they'll pay for the Tigers' travel to Berkeley, and Auburn pays for Cal's to Alabama. This is fake news. Sad.

After that call on Laxamana's tag, Auburn can pay for all the trips
