Position Papers
The Big Lie on the Arizona Immigration Law
President Barack Obama says that the new Arizona immigration law threatens "to undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans." Liberal newspapers across the country have claimed that the bill authorizes racial profiling and intrudes on the federal government's control over immigration policy.

They should all read the law that was actually passed. It does no such thing.

The ticking time bomb that is our public employee pension system
The Sacramento Bee had a major expose Sunday on the ticking time bomb that is our public employee pension system. The Gray Davis-initiated retroactive change in the pension formula has produced a financial tsunami that is likely to bankrupt almost every local government across the state in the years ahead.
Health care reform challenge? It's the law
In a recent editorial ("Nullify health law? Good luck with that," March 28), The Bee stated that the recent lawsuits filed by 14 state attorneys general challenging the constitutionality of President Obama's health care bill are "frivolous lawsuits that are more about policy differences or symbolic gestures than constitutionality."

The Bee's editorial board needs a primer in constitutional law.
