#1 Excuse-me but isn't California a liberal state?

#2 Oceania is already overpopulated. A successfully green planet requires a degree of population control. The procedure comes at no cost to the resident. Funding and permits are available for tubal ligation reversals. Same-sex couples are free to opt out and accept cash settlements.

#3 Sounds like an example of ObamaCare. Doing things for the convenience of staff, not the needs of patients is what you'll get when you remove customer choice.

#4 The states (all 50 of them) have a century-old tradition of sterilizing people considered by the states to be inferior or defective. This is nothing new.

Ah, the confusion of classical liberalism with modern neo-socialism. The policies of Margaret Sanger are alive and being implemented. Her concepts were a big hit with other socialists. While American acts of use were somewhat selective and limited, the European implementation was run with full scale enthusiasm. The bureaucrats goals though were basically the same.

#6 Eugenics is very popular with the Lefty set. After all, lesser peoples shouldn't be allowed to breed. Only their finest slaves will be allowed to have more slaves for their utopia.

No, it's a "progressive" state. The most famous "progressive" was a guy named Hilter or something.

#8 Notice that the major problem seems to be that the sterilizations were done without state approvals. In other words, if the state had approved, it would have been ok.

Ahem. Classical liberalism is the time honored term for belief in the liberty of individuals and a severely limited role for government.

Overruled -- member (by marriage, but still) of the Kennedy family.

#14 More than a RINO Schwarzy is a democrat running fir the Republicans. Actually it was the only kind of "Republican" electable in California; Also I doubt Schwarzy had a free hand with the megislature or that he could nominate whoever he wanted to head the Department of Corrections.

#15 Since this was done without state approval I don't think who was governor matters, unless that is why they did it secretly.
It is scary to think there is even government approval/disapproval of this sort of thing or that doctors would knowingly go along with it. The world is darker than I had hoped.

#16 This is just like the IRS scandal. A bunch of lawless bureaucrats know what's best and do it.

#17 I know that the governator probably didn't' have much to do with it, and is a sorry excuse for a republican, but I also suspect that isn't how things are going to be reported.
Maybe this will spare us further bloviating from the global-warming alarmist driving around in his hummv.
