Redding's City Council meetings have become a three-ring circus of
arrogance, futility and political bias.

Is the irony just lost on me? Or is it hypocritical that the
conservative City Council threw the California medical marijuana law
under the federal bus, especially when conservatives are always
complaining about the feds' eternal encroachment?

Here was the chance for those "representatives" to keep their powder
dry, honor California law, and be what they say they are - but
instead, they swung like a bar-room door.

Such cowardice can no longer have legitimacy in government.

If the City Council is going to spurn California law, then the
councilors should at least have the decency to hold a full-blown
hearing on the issue rather than handling it as just another agenda
item. It appears that the council is more afraid of the feds than of
"we the people."

Will the real conservatives please stand up?
