While many times I've read absurd recommendations in Bee editorials, "Democrats: Fix initiative process" (Dec. 13) is beyond absurd. The Bee proposes that Darrell Steinberg and the Legislature rewrite the initiative process! This is tantamount to allowing death row inmates to pick the day, time and year of their execution. How many would pick the year 2300?
Last year 900 bills passed as products of a Democrat-controlled Legislature, proving it is a cesspool of pandering to liberal ideologies. Even though Gov. Jerry Brown did not sign the most absurd bills on his desk, he did sign some real losers. I am sure next year will be worse! The Dems want to unravel the only controls against Dem insanity, the initiative process. It is not perfect; it has invaders on both sides of issues; but it has produced far better legislation for all the people. We are not as stupid as the Democrats and The Bee surmise. At least I hope not. No meddling, please.
