Glazer bill would prohibit state landmarks named after Confederacy

Glazer also penned a joint resolution urging Congress to
rename federal properties associated with Confederacy.
STATE SENATE | DISTRICT 7 | Thanks to State Sen. Steve Glazer there may never be an elementary school in Oakland named after Confederate Lieutenant General Richard “Fighting Dick” Anderson.

A bill authored recently by Glazer, who represents much of Contra Costa County and the Tri Valley in Alameda County, would ban the naming of schools, government buildings, parks and roads with names associated with the Confederate States.

Senate Bill 539, co-authored by State Sen. Isadore Hall (D-South Bay), would also prohibit the sale and display of the Confederate flag by the state, excluding for educational and historical purposes. If approved by the Legislature, the bill would be effective January 2017. The legislation was referred to the Assembly Rules Committee for a hearing on July 13.

State Sen. Steve Glazer
“The Confederate States of America’s secessionist movement was rooted in the defense of slavery. Currently, certain ideological groups use the symbols of this movement to demean and offend whole segments of our society while sowing racial divisions,” the bill reads.

“The use of names of political leaders and senior military officers of the Confederate States of America to name California public schools, buildings, parks, roadways, and other state and local property is antithetical to California’s mission for racial equality.”

All local references to the Confederacy prior to 2017--for instance, schools and government buildings--would be required to be changed. Cost of new signage to jurisdiction could be subject to reimbursement from the state, according to the early draft of the bill.

The issue in California, which was a Union state during the Civil War, came to prominence two weeks ago after a push among residents in Long Beach to rename Robert E. Lee Elementary School following the murder of nine African Americans in Charleston, S.C. by a killer harboring racist views and an affinity for the Confederacy’s stars and bars flag.

In addition, Senate Joint Resolution 15, offered July 2 by Glazer, urges Congress to rename federal buildings and properties associated with the Confederate States.

Interesting. Will the Senator stand so strongly against racial profiling of police officers in towns like Orinda, Lafayette and Pleasanton?

There is no such thing as 'racial profiling.' Get over this crap.

Steve has allowed himself to get mixed up with the asshole Hall who hijacked the Bay Bridge and named it for a corrupt backroom pimpin' boss politician named Willie duh HO Brown! Bad deal, Steve. Lose this loser pronto.

If Glazer really wanted to do something important to help the general; public, rather than pretending to be a good guy by engaging in demagoguery, instead he would try to do something about the huge amount of lightly disguised bribes politicians and elected officials get that the givers and recipients often pretend are election campaign contributions or supposedly legitimate legal consultation fees.

And the politician referred to in the previous post of 9:43, and who in addition to being a politician is also a lawyer, is one of the most extreme examples in US history of a sleazy fixer who over the decades has collected a fortune in lightly disguised bribes by pretending that those bribes were election campaign contributions or legitimate legal consultation fees.

Glazer is a buffoon. He should go back to picking his nose and waiting for big business & special interests to tell him what to do. So much for "the people's choice."

We agree. Without a good and honorable man to take on the dirty union whores, we would be bankrupt at this point. Let's see what's the name of all those union hacks who wanted to rob the public blind in each of the elections against him? Oh, yeah.

*****************LOSERS, BIGTIME!***************

Glazer is a corporate puppet with out of state billionaires pulling his strings. He is a loser big time!

Glazer is in fact, a loser. Bravo for coming up with a useless Bill. Guess his wealthy backers let him loose to do his own thing for once and this the best he could come up or collaborate on. What a dope.

We agree. Without a good and honorable man to take on the dirty union whores, we would be bankrupt at this point. Let's see what's the name of all those union hacks who wanted to rob the public blind in each of the elections against him? Oh, yeah. Thank you Senator Steve Glazer!!!!

*****************LOSERS, BIGTIME!***************

Maybe Senator Glazer should author a bill banning Dukes of Hazard t.v. show reruns. The General Lee is offensive and a threat to California. Oops! I just gave that dummy an idea.

We'll take Honest Steve everyday of the week. At least he doesn't rob the public blind like the union whores.

He will continue to get our votes.

If Glazer really wants to do something useful and important and that will save many human lives, and in fact hundreds of thousands of lives in the US every year, why does he not push a law that anytime a sleazy professional pathological liar and common criminal hiding behind a law license assists a tobacco company in covering up the truth and the facts, that lawyer will not only be disbarred but also receive a lifetime prison sentence for murder.

(NOTE: The tobacco companies and their sleazy lawyers have been co-conspirators in the murder of far more people than Hitler and Stalin murdered or ever even dreamed of murdering.)

Or if Glazer really wants to do something useful and important, and that would save at least tens of thousands of lives in the US every year, he could arrange to have a law passed that anytime a paid off political hack in judges' robes, AND AS A FAVOR TO SLEAZY LAWYERS OR A LOCAL POLITICAL BOSS, tries to arrange a sealed settlement in a lawsuit involving health hazards, and such as for instance in regard to asbestos exposures, that all lawyers, all judges, and all politicians involved will receive lifetime prison sentences for murder.

NOTE: Approx 2.5 million people die in the US every year, and which is about seven thousand people per day, and which is also about three hundred people per hour and about five people every single minute. And many of those people die as a result of such things as lung cancer, and often as a result of health hazards, and such as having been secretly and unknowingly exposed to asbestos, and with many of those incidents covered up in secret settlements arranged by sleazy lawyers and crooked judges who receive under the table bribes from those sleazy lawyers.

So if we really want to save a lot of lives, let's forget about gun control laws and laws targeting the display of Confederate flags, and instead get some extremely tough asbestos control laws and also some extremely tough crooked lawyer control laws.

Glazer is a buffoon. He should go back to picking his nose and waiting for big business & special interests to tell him what to do. So much for "the people's choice."

We'll take Honest Steve everyday of the week. At least he doesn't rob the public blind like the union whores.

Such a dirty union slut, above, to make vial comments. You should have your mouth rinsed out with shit. Such language!

I voted for Senator Glazer too. He's an honest man and a great leader. He'll take on corrupt Unions and make it easier for me to get my psych meds back.

Glazer will be gone in 2016, but until then he can't seem to pull his head out of his ass. I'd rather have someone who cares for the middle class with good wages and benefits, than someone like Glazer who is beholden to the corrupt corporate whores, who are really sticking it to consumers!

Sorry again, union whore. Your diatribe doesn't play well here, or indeed at all. You're the same old union slut who, by the way, always objected to 'whore' but now have no problem invoking it. Always start at home with yourself. Anyway, Steve will be representing OUR interests for the next 13 years since he won't be allowed to fail. He is an incumbent who is now embraced by the Democratic leadership in Sac. Town. He has defeated Joan Bitchchanan and Second Place Sue Bonilla. Bottom line is union-whore rejects will always end up on the trash heap of history.

Celebrating our dear Assemblywoman Cathy Baker and great Senator Steve Glazer. They have proven themselves to be the PEOPLE'S CHOICES!

Also, wash your fucking mouth out. We don't use profanity such as 'ass.'

LAYFA!!!!!!!

After 2016 both Baker and Glazer will be gone and the rest of us will be LAYFA!!!!!

In 2016 both Baker and Glazer will be RE-elected in landslides and we will be sooooooo happy!

LAYFA, ya'll!!!!!!!

Glazer and Baker are corporate puppets with out of state billionaires pulling their strings. He and she are goners in 2016 when more than 25% of the voters will show you who the people's choice candidates are! In a Presidential year you will get more than double the number of voters and they are more progressive. Then we will be laughing when Baker and Glazer are gone. Don't cry Ralph. Since you live in Hayward, you can't vote. What a loser! :)

LAYFA!!!!!!!

Sorry to disappoint you, but I don't belong to a union, and you and I both know Glazer and Baker will both be vulnerable in 2016 when there will be a much larger turnout of voters. You seem like a bitter little man with a Napoleon complex who had mother issues. Wash out your sexist foul-mouth and watch in 2016 when Glazer and Baker go down to ignominious defeat.

The 8:26 post who seems to hate unions is definitely a sexist. Others have said he is Ralph Fariass who has run for City Council numerous times in Hayward and last time only gathered less than 5% of the vote. If you look at his multiple posts you can see why he loses so badly. The voters are much smarter than he is.

Don't know if both Glazer and Baker will both lose in 2016, but it is definitely a possibility because the voting base will be larger and much more progressive. All his swearing and calling people names won't help his candidates at all. Oh, I don't belong to a union either, but would vote for one if I had a chance. They helped build the middle class in America, and when they shrank, so did the middle class.

We see that one in the same, the union whore, continues to post to a vacuous audience of one--herself. Whatever.

Keep having those soaking wet dreams, Dorcas. You are the only one getting off on them.

Dear ASSEMBLYWOMAN Cathy Baker and outstanding SENATOR Steve Glazer continue to be THE PEOPLE'S CHOICE CANDIDATES AND NOW INCUMBENTS. That's because they care about us and don't pick our pockets clean. They'll be with us for the next 12 or 13 years, and we are damn lucky to have them!

@8:26 am sounds sexually frustrated. Ranting about whores, wet dreams, crap mouth rinsing etc. Maybe Honest Steve can help you out with your problem, but you'll have to pay him first. On second thought, @8:26 am probably can't afford to buy Honest Hotpants Steve Glazer's sexual favors.

11:26 continues to have those wet dreams. Bitch really is frustrated in many ways. Well, that's what happens when your puppet union whores continue to lose, over and over again.

The rest of us will continue to get a good night's sleep knowing we have the PEOPLE'S CHOICE working for us. Assemblywoman Cathy Baker and Senator Steve Glazer make an amazing tag team. We are blessed!

I don't belong to a union either. In fact my family would never submit to their crooked ways and always stealing members money to fluff up corrupt politicians. So glad that Baker and Glazer were elected to represent us. Finally have some confidence in government again. My granddaughter is said 'Grammy, can I grow up to be just like Mrs. Baker?' I told her our family would be down-right proud if she chooses such a fantastic role model.

With more than double the voters in 2016, you will find the People's Choice candidates will be someone's other than the corrupt corporate puppets of Glazer and Baker. Ralph will cry like the baby he is!

Bye Bye Baker, Bye Bye Glazer, and Bye Bye Fariass in 2016.

Bye, bye who, bitch?

Oh, YOU, bitch! We agree!!

We notice that the Space HO always writes her rantings against our good moderate legislators in the wee small hours of the morning. Must be when she is going down for her wet dreams--the only scenario that allows her fantasies to be masked as 'reality.'

Ralph take your medication and seek help. This is why the voters
reject you time after time after time....................You wouldn't know reality if it bit you in your Fariass. :)

Ralph who, bitch?

I've got Baker and Glazer. Whom do you have, bitch? Right. NO ONE. Keep on dreamin' those wet dreams!

@8:40pm Glazer & Baker are lucky to have a perverted looney like you constantly ranting their praises. Glazer is a moron who is wasting time & money fighting the confederacy in California. Honest Douche Glazer. The man of the pee hole!

Assemblywoman Cathy Baker and Senator Steve Glazer continue to be the PEOPLE'S CHOICES because they work for the PEOPLE and not the dirty, corrupt, toxic union sluts!

We are so blessed to have them representing OUR interests.
