Never, never think that California has gotten as wacky as it’s gonna get.
This weekend Gov. Jerry Brown signed a new, uh, law that requires companies to have women on their boards of directors (https://www.breitbart.com/california/2018/10/02/californias-jerry-brown-signs-law-requiring-women-on-corporate-boards/). At least one, this year; and by 2021, at least two if there are five members on the board, and at least three if there are six.
Signing the bill into law, His Daffiness admitted that the legislation might contain “potential flaws that may prove fatal to its implementation.” Ya think? But that’s okay, he added, ’cause we’re sending them a message.
This is what happens when you hold to the doctrine that the government owns everything and can do just as it pleases with it–including telling a privately-owned company who may or may not be on its board of directors. But who cares about the Constitution, or even basic sanity, when you’re sendin’ ’em a message?
The great majority of corporations in America already do have women on their boards of directors, without being coerced by the devouring state. But when you’re in the business of throwing unconstitutional sops to the #MeToo crowd, you can ignore stuff like that.
If Democrats are ever allowed back into power, think about their plans for our country’s future. And then wonder if we’ll even have a future.
