My friend and mentor Todd read the Encyclicals (Prologue, Burbank 1 and 2, Los Angeles 1 and 2, and California 1, 2, and 3); Eugene Tong of the Los Angeles Daily News linked to them in his blog; Did you read the Encyclicals?
However, if you read them, a few side notes.
A) Last Monday, my Mom was mugged here in Burbank and the Burbank Police Department and Fire Department did a great job of helping us out. So, many thanks and kudos to those brave men and women who help in Burbank.
B) I learned about the ADC's by being in one. If you are a Republican in California, support them. If you can do better, bring friends and run for positions in them. The name of the game is to win.
C) Why did this Jew call these Posts Encyclicals? My Bar Mitzvah was in Israel in 1983 during the Winter Holiday season. Seeing all three great religions at their height and acting their best drove me to curiosity. I learned the Pauline Letters are really early Encyclicals. If something must be said, it must be heard. The Los Angeles and California Encyclicals were forwarded to the Los Angeles Times (no response), White House Office of Political Affairs (in conversation), RNC Chairman's office and Political Office, Two Republican Presidential campaigns, the NRCC and the NRSC. How can you win in Los Angeles and California with the same team?
D) The Los Angeles County Republican Party [LACRP] has the same team that supported Mayor Hahn, so do the Lincoln clubs. They do not want to win. For these same leaders, it is more profitable for the LACRP to lose then to fight. However, if they wish to prove me wrong, win two City Council seats based in the San Fernando Valley in the next local election. Then keep those seats.
E) The California Congress of Republicans [CCR] have a habit of trying to destroy anyone who is not a Republican of their ilk; the California Republican Assembly only builds coalitions. In 1999, the leader of the CCR's walked out of the State Convention because the Party was not "moderate" enough. To win, give patronage, build Coalitions, and play nice with others.
F) Remember the Equation: 37 Counties + San Diego + Los Angeles = Republican State.
