That’s What He Said

Supreme Court to Hear Oral Arguments in Prop. 8 Cases on March 5, 2009

Posted in Politics by wolfsbayne on February 3, 2009

San Francisco—The California Supreme Court today announced that it will hear oral arguments on Thursday, March 5, 2009, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., in three cases challenging the constitutionality of Proposition 8, a statewide ballot initiative that was passed by a majority of California voters in November 2008. (Strauss v. Horton, S168047; Tyler v. State of California, S168066; City and County of San Francisco v. Horton, S168078).

The oral argument session will be held in the Supreme Court’s Courtroom, Earl Warren Center, Fourth Floor, 350 McAllister Street, San Francisco, as part of the court’s regular monthly calendar session in March 2009. The complete March 2009 oral argument calendar is available at .

In the cases before the court, the court has issued an order listing the following three issues to be briefed and argued:

  1. Is Proposition 8 invalid because it constitutes a revision of, rather than an amendment to, the California Constitution?
  2. Does Proposition 8 violate the separation of powers doctrine under the California Constitution?
  3. If Proposition 8 is not unconstitutional, what is its effect, if any, on the marriages of same-sex couples performed before the adoption of Proposition 8?

The three cases before the court were filed directly in the California Supreme Court on November 5, 2008, the day following the voters’ approval of Proposition 8 at the November 4, 2008 election.

On November 19, 2008, the court agreed to hear the cases, denied a request to stay the operation of Proposition 8 pending the court’s resolution of the cases, granted the motion of the official proponents of Proposition 8 to intervene in the action, and established an expedited briefing schedule. Briefing in the Supreme Court was completed on January 21, 2009.

In an order issued today, the Supreme Court specified the amount of time each of the
petitioners, the Attorney General, and the interveners will be allocated for oral argument.


To increase public access to the court session, the Supreme Court has designated the
California Channel, a public affairs cable network, to provide a live TV broadcast of the
session and to serve as the “pool” channel. California Channel will provide a press pool
outside the State Building to facilitate coverage of the oral argument by television and radio stations. For a list of cable companies that carry the network, see .

Oral arguments also will be broadcast in an overflow viewing auditorium in the Milton
Marks Conference Center, Hiram J. Smith State Office Building, Lower Level, 455 Golden
Gate Avenue, San Francisco. In addition, the Supreme Court has announced that all briefs in the Proposition 8 cases are now posted to a special section of the California Courts Web site at .

Under the applicable court rules, the Supreme Court generally issues a decision, through a written opinion, within 90 days of oral argument. For more information on the cases, including the attorneys of record, please see the Supreme Court’s online Case Information System at .

Public and press seating in the courtroom will be extremely limited. Press seats will be
available on a first-come, first-served basis, with one seat to be allocated per media
organization. To reserve a seat, please e-mail Lynn Holton ( or call 415-865-7726/7740.

Melt The Phones and Help Stop The ‘Stimulus’ Bill

Posted in Economy, Politics by wolfsbayne on January 28, 2009

Many of you know that I sometimes melt faces utilizing molten riffs on guitar. However, today I’m asking you to join the “Melt The Phones” groundswell and call your representatives to oppose the pork barrel “stimulus” bill. This bill is bad news for America. Check out some commentary of the Congressional Budget Office’s review of this bill here.

You only have a couple hours to call. So do it now!

I’m In The Twitter Timeline Again, But Now President Bush’s Speechwriter Isn’t #fail

Posted in Politics, Social, Technology by wolfsbayne on January 11, 2009

…as of 3 weeks ago.

I was a bad blogger and didn’t follow up after I posted to Twitter regarding being back in the timeline.

The short: I didn’t hear anything from the Twitter folks until I posted on, a public customer service website where twitter has a presence. Within a couple days I was miraculously back in the timeline. Kudos to services like GS. Here’s the link to the thread at GS:

When I was finally contacted by Twitter, I received an email from them. They didn’t reply to the thread at GS. Twitter claimed I was reported as a “spammer” and it took them over a month to “research” whether or not I was a spammer. So, either a.) it’s all B.S. and people in the Twitter San Francisco HQ are sympathetic to liberal causes, will censor you, and then will drag their heels to resolve an issue like this until you make your grievance public or b.) Twitter’s system is easily gamed, whereby if enough people block you, you get blacklisted and then Twitter’s support will…drag their heels to resolve an issue like this. I mean, we’re talking about people living and working in San Francisco. It’s not really a bastion of conservative thinking in NorCal is it? Sure, have a good laugh at the conservatives being censored, right?

What prompted me to post a followup today was the fact that I just received an @ reply on Twitter from Michael Johns (@michaeljohns), a former speechwriter for George H.W. Bush, in which Johns states that he’s missing from the timeline. This happened shortly after Micheal called out Barack Obama publicly on Twitter for lying. Here’s the link to all of Michael’s tweets in Twitter’s search index: You see, there are only a few tweets in the public timeline out of his 65 ( the # at the time of this writing) tweets.

I’m going to recommend that Michael piggyback on my thread at GS and post a description of his problem publicly. I’d encourage any other conservatives to do the same if they find themselves in the same situation of being censored, either by “bug”, happenstance, or intent.

“He who controls the news controls the views.”

Twitter, you need to get this corrected ASAP. It’s really starting to look suspect – even if it isn’t. #fail

Brooks Bayne – Still Missing In The Twitter Public Timeline

Posted in Politics, Social, Technology by wolfsbayne on December 16, 2008


Either @brooksbayne has set twitter to private mode (hiding all messages from public view), or the messages between these users were so far apart in time that we couldn’t connect them.

…or he has NOT set twitter to private mode and he’s still missing from the public timeline.

What if a liberal who worked at Twitter got offended over something you posted and decided to censor you?

Posted in Parenting, Politics, Social, Startups, Technology by wolfsbayne on December 13, 2008

What if?

I’m gonna let some of you in on a little secret. I’m a conservative, recovering Libertarian, and self-described Independent. I don’t live in a bunker in some far away “Hickville”. I live in Los Angeles. I’m sure some of the liberals reading this know that L.A. is in California, but, if at the time you’re reading this, you’re too stoned to know, let me assure you that it is.

During the 2008 election cycle, I (@brooksbayne) made some new friends via Twitter – I also made some new “not friends”. Since the election’s been over, I’ve unwittingly become the resident and leading conservative in the L.A. tech scene (does that come with a door prize?). I’m not dogmatic about my views when I discuss issues with the other side. However, I’ve been told that I can be snarky.

One fine morning, about a month ago, a liberal mommy blogger got pissed off at some harmless Motrin ad posted sympathizing with babywearers about potential neck and back pain that wearing babies can cause. This liberal blogger posted some emotional nonsense on Twitter which was subsequently picked up by Jessica Gottlieb (@JessicaGottlieb) and the #MotrinMoms hashtag was created. Feeling quite pleased with herself after her initial #motrinmoms post, Jessica posted this:


Aw, cute, I just wanna pinch her little cheeks. I wonder if she talks to her kids this way while she’s wearing them.

FYI, I really don’t have anything against Jessica, or the aforementioned blogger, but I do think they were overreacting. Apparently, corporations can’t say *anything* about fads without getting unduly slammed for it. That’s right. I said fad. Although there are a few younger conservative women who may have been offended it seems a majority of the uproar was from the liberal corner. I asked my 5000 followers on Twitter, many of whom are conservative, if any were offended by the motrin ad. The only responses I got from my conservative mom followers were “No”. I do know of one young conservative mom who was offended, but she only repeated the #motrinmoms talking points.

You see, babywearing has been around in the conservative circles for many years, and in some cultures it’s been around as long as people can remember. Take a look at the photo below, dated 7/8/1996. Here’s a American conservative wearing a baby over 12 years ago…and it’s a man. Some of you might be thinking, “Damn, Brooks, you must’ve spent a long time trying to find this photo of a male babywearer predating the current babywearing fad on the Interwebz.” Well, actually, for those of you who know me can tell, that’s me in the photo along with my son right after he was born. Yeah, I know a thing or two about babywearing. Back then, the liberals I knew thought we were crazy for babywearing. My, how things have changed. As a babywearer, if ever there were an issue that could be described as a tempest in a teapot, it would be the motrin babywearing ad.

Brooks Bayne - Baby wearer.

“But Brooks, you can’t say this is some new fad.”

Yes we can!

Let’s take a look at the evidence of how babywearing has trended.  We can examine the 3 top resulting websites on Google for the term “babywearing” and the history of their content.

  1. By Google search rank: – registered 05-jan-2007 – content shortly after.
  2. – registered 23-jul-2003 but no babywearing information until September of that year per the Internet Wayback Machine.
  3. – registered in 30-jul-2001 *but this domain originally pointed to another domain that had *nothing* to do with babywearing when it was registered. In fact, there’s no babywearing information for this domain until late 2004 per the Internet Wayback Machine.

Next, we can look at Google’s blog indexes to gauge the propagation of the term “babywearing” in the blogosphere.

Google blog search has a whopping 5 blog posts indexed between January 2000 and the December 2003. However, from the January 2004 thru December 2007 over 12,000 blog posts were indexed. In 2008 alone, there have been over 35,000 blog posts indexed.

So, based on the above information, we can see the babywearing trend didn’t really get under way until 2004. Where we see a huge upswing in the stats for the term babywearing is in 2008. I wouldn’t say babywearing has “crossed the chasm” just yet.

I know, I know, you’re wondering what this all has to do with the title of this blog post.

Well, the last tweet of mine that was available in the public timeline and in was my snarky tweet in response to the whole overblown Motrin ad debacle. See for yourself:


Obviously, as a man who’s been a babywearer for longer than most of these newer upstart women babywearers, I think I would have a valid opinion about the hype over this. However, since posting that tweet, my newer tweets have not been posting to the public timeline and my posts are missing from search too. My Twitter account isn’t hidden/protected by me because you have to select the “protect my updates” checkbox to hide your profile. Mine’s not checked.


I first noticed something was up because I used Qwitter, now defunct, to let me know when people stopped following me. Days went by and all my Qwitter emails referred to that older #motrinmoms tweet of mine. Qwitter would list the last tweet you posted when someone quit following you. Since this was the last tweet of mine that was posted “publicly”, all my Quitter emails referred to it until the time Qwitter had it’s plug pulled by its devs, Contrast. I contacted the guys at Contrast. Here’s that exchange.


I’ve submitted 3 support requests to the folks at Twitter, but they haven’t responded. Twitter did respond to another unrelated support request within a couple days and resolved that issue. Interesting to note is the support request I submitted for this issue. Look at the the line marked (by me) with the red arrow in the pic below where it says “USER IS hidden on public timeline”. My account is obviously not hidden by me. A normal hidden account looks like this secondary account I created: My primary account isn’t hidden by me. So, how did my account become “hidden” in the public timeline?

I’m one of the the Top Conservatives on Twitter and I can’t post tweets with that group’s hashtag: #tcot. I mean, I can add the hashtag to my tweets, but if any people want to follow that hashtag using tools like Tweetdeck, they won’t see my tweets, because Tweetdeck searches hashtags in the public timeline.

It’s purely coincidental that my last post in the public timeline was regarding #motrinmoms, right? Although, theoretically, it wouldn’t be difficult for the devs to create another Bit column in Twitter’s database and keep people’s posts from hitting the public timeline and search by marking them hidden behind the scenes, but that would be censorship. Is @brooksbayne being censored by a liberal at Twitter who is sympathetic to the #motrinmoms? I have a feeling we’re about to find out.

Liberals Being Intolerant On Twitter Again – This Time Over Prop 8

Posted in Politics, Social by wolfsbayne on November 6, 2008

The people have spoken in California, again. This time Californian’s have voted to amend the state’s constitution to contain, “Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid and recognized in California.”

On November 5th, 2008, with 100% of the precincts reporting, the tally is:

Yes Votes % No Votes %
5,387,939 52.5% 4,883,460 47.5%

Let’s see what the standard-bearers of “tolerance” have to say about it on Twitter.

xtopher42: Retweeting @jacobjackson: The bigots who voted for Prop 8 can die in a fire.
meredithmo: So many emotions this morning. I’m overwhelmed.We’re solid as Barack, but Prop 8 supporters need to die in a fire.
gazellesoncrack: I’m waiting for CA Prop 8 results & want to say if my best friend isn’t married tomorrow, I will kick each &every voter until they die.
0Randy0: Prop 8 supporters can eat shit and die
wilw: Resolved: the next asshole who encourages me to vote yes on prop 8 via bigoted flyer on my doorstep will be encouraged to die in a fire.
Smalltimejazz: PROP 8 can go to hell. Fuck religion.
_jas_: After Prop 8, it’s clear that religious groups shouldn’t be a protected class of people under the law. Oppressors needn’t be protected.
Melindhra: @RJToronto Prop 8 is bullshit. I can’t believe that anyone wouldbe stupid enough to vote for it.
FearCake: I hate to say it but finding out that over 70 percent of blacks voting for prop 8 makes me very distrustful of themas a whole.
_jas_: It’s laughable that the LDS was such huge supporter of Prop 8. Can they really be protectors of marriage? Polygamist bigots.
ajkl27: the whole prop 8 thing makes me wanna move to california and go on a jason style rampage
timbond: @pdxmikek I am with you there. I can’t get over the evil that is Prop 8
JamesJumpsuit: Fuck my parents for voting YES on prop 8,stupid hairy cunts!
Plaid23: I truly wish death on those who supported prop.8 in Cali.An amendment to limit freedom? Shame on you! Please die soon and horribly!
sleepingschnauz: mad that prop 8 passed.stupid right Wing christians.
nexusdivine: fuck you prop 8…fuck you.right in the ass.with a REAL mans cock.
electasy: Today just SUCKS! Prop 8 SUCKS! 52% of California?s population SUCKS! /cry
jhorsley3: to California any anyone who supported it – FUCK YOU FOR PROP 8
Miss_AnnThrope: also, I’m going to go take a shit on some yes for prop 8 signs, anyone wanna join?
deets: Fuck you California and the Mormon Church for passing Prop 8. Seriously, go fuck yourselves
urban_ryoga: Is restraining himself from pissing on all Yes on Prop 8 signs
Ryudo9: prop 8 can eat donkey cock cheese, that’s just messed up. Like a giant dump on the bill of rights
whatszachdoing: california voted yes on prop 8. FUCK YOU CALI! FUCK YOU LONG AND HARD! no offense @Myrindaside + @leslie666
barr: With prop 8 passing, the next person who says CA is a liberal state should be punched in the mouth
timylee: Not all battles were won last night, shocked by the passing of Prop.8 (aka,Prop. Hate) in Cali. Talk about a dose of bigotry.
sfosav: After Prop 8 I have no faith in religion.Who are religious nutbags to say who marries who. F you Church.
eschaton: I won’t be leaving politics behind, especially the abomination that is Prop 8. If you voted for that, you may as  well have joined the Klan.
Merosmash: Hey California … WTF IS WITH PASSING PROP 8, YOU HORRIBLE BASTARDS? (not all of you, 48% of you are cool)
girliedrummer: DD: i cannot believe that Prop 8 was passed! i’m ticked!!! everyone who voted for Prop 8 is a bunch of homo-phobic bitches!!!
ShadowSync: The passing on Prop 8 is a piece of Henious fuckery most foul.
skywaterblue: Just remember about Prop 8: We are many. We are legion. We cannot be stopped. We have over 9000 PENISES ALL RAPING YOUR CHILDREN.
eschewcapitals: seriously, is anyone actually happy with the outcome of prop 8? (and if you are, i’d advise you getaway from me quickly)
erikthedane: To the fucktards in CA that voted in Prop 8, may you never know the happiness you are trying to deny people.
sprigglebot: Fuck prop 8!
spleenless1der: I think passing Prop 8 lowered the state IQ by a few points…seriously, the idiots are out en masse 😦
Meredith122: If you voted for prop 8 FUCK YOU

Let’s see, threats of death, many by fire (fire? no idea, must be some gay retribution thing), and plenty of ad hominem statements (if they even qualify that high), hate speech against blacks and Christians, or mostly just vitriolic tirades. Take a look through Twitter’s search engine and try to find a Prop 8 supporter engaging in such behavior. I couldn’t.

many_eels: I’m not sure of i want prop 8 to go to the supreme court just yet. I’m scared of what they’ll say

Anyway, I included the last tweet above since many_eels seemed to be the smartest one of the bunch. After Prop 8 was decided by the people, several law suits were filed claiming “foul”. However, the gay rights groups have called for people not to file cases in federal court. Pushing this issue now and having the case ultimately fail in front of the Supreme Court will take gay marriage off the table for generations. Gays, it’s your call. Let this drop now for a bit, or get spanked at the federal bench? Although, some of you might like the sound of that.

Hypocritical Palin Haters On Twitter

Posted in Economy, Politics, Technology by wolfsbayne on October 15, 2008

As is probably evident, I’m not a big supporter of Barack Obama. His worldview, which the GOP can’t seem to define, is hopelessly socialist. However, I don’t hate him, or Joe Biden. In fact, I don’t hate anyone.

Miss Wasilla 1984 However, the liberal hate that’s fomented around Sarah Palin is curious. Liberals tout themselves as the “standard bearers” for “tolerance”. So where is the tolerance for Palin? Apparently, it’s gone with last night’s liberal bong water. I can see why liberals wouldn’t like her. She’s pretty, strong, believes in God, married, has great kids and has an 80% approval rating in her state as governor. Although, some secular progressive (SP) women on Twitter keep claiming they are smarter than Palin, but they produce no evidence to support the claim – this includes the SP women I know IRL. To be fair, there are a lot of folks on the other side of the fence that claim Biden is stupid too…oh wait…nm. 😉

I did a search on Twitter for the terms “Palin” and “Hate” this week right after the mainstream media accused McCain and Palin of hate speech for their questioning of Obama’s past associations.

The image below captured what my search turned up:


I was on my laptop so I didn’t get tons of results in my screenshot, but there were pages of the same sort. All parroting and retweeting the same story with inaccurate information, or plain liberal rhetoric.

A little over a week ago a search for the terms “Hate” and “Palin” was compiled by another blog:

aa86: Watched the debate and hate Palin even more. I don’t want to hear the word “maverick” for quite some time

Sparky6768: Ugh. I hate Palin SO much.

Wow…I’m guessing you see a difference. Previously, the liberal Everyman didn’t have his talking points from master mainstream media. It’s clear there’s a huge amount of hypocrisy on Twitter amongst the liberal Everyman. You publicly engage in hateful writing (and I’m guessing you speak it too when offline, I’ve heard some of you) toward Sarah, and as soon as your liberal mainstream media masters give you a talking point, you attack Sarah claiming she’s a hater.

The problem is that Sarah Palin didn’t state that she hated anyone, nor did she imply that she hated anyone, unlike all you people who posted your hate obama-no-patriot publicly and directly toward her on Twitter so there would be no room for uncertainty. Sarah simply called into question Barack Obama’s judgment over his relationships. This is a perfectly valid point to raise.

Imagine if John McCain sat on a board with Timothy McVeigh (srsly, imagine the Twitterverse if that were the case), or went to David Duke’s church (if he were a pastor), you would want those relationships called into question, right? I would. Why don’t any of you want Obama’s relationships investigated. Hypocrisy? Fear that the world will find something that will destroy your agent of “Change”? The more we dig the more we find that Barack hasn’t been truthful (i.e. “Ayers is a guy in my neighborhood”, “I never worked for Acorn”, etc.). If there were a real concerted effort, by the mainstream media, to truly investigate this guy, we might find a whole lot more. We’ve only scratched the surface of vetting this man, IMO. Personally, I’d like to see Obama’s college records that he refuses to release. What else is Barack hiding? Again, questioning Barack’s past is not hate.

Even if Sarah did claim to hate someone, most of you have disqualified yourselves to say anything about it and have anyone take you seriously. That’s a real life example of hypocrisy for some of you.

I’d encourage anyone with any semblance of intelligence to ignore the likes of haters. Don’t get caught up in their dark sad world. Haters typically can’t be reasoned with due to their inability to override their internal fool. You don’t have to like Sarah Palin, but you shouldn’t hate her either.

Harlem Residents Love McCain’s Policies And Sarah Palin. But They Are Voting For…Obama?

Posted in Politics, Social by wolfsbayne on October 14, 2008

Pimp golbet bitches
I posted a statement a while back stating that many blacks are voting this year for Obama simply because he’s black. Some people responded saying they hadn’t met or knew of anyone fitting this profile, suggesting that I didn’t know what I was talking about. In the following piece from Howard Stern, the blacks interviewed are asked questions to which their responses support my personal experience. I love this clip because it demonstrates the ignorance we’re dealing with in America these days. People hear “handouts” and they gather around the teet on the Federal sow and start drooling.

I am Brooks Bayne and I approve this message.

Senate voting on $700bil “Rescue” Bill Today after House Bailout Bill Failed on Monday

Posted in Economy, Politics by wolfsbayne on October 1, 2008

A couple days after the 110 page Bailout bill failed passage in the House, the Senate is trying to pass their 451 page version of a Bailout bill. However, the Senate are adding several other bills to the old House Bailout bill, and are now calling it a “Rescue” bill.

Barack Obama addressed the Senate today and claimed that the economy might correct itself, but he still wants the $700bil the for which the Rescue bill calls. Meanwhile, McCain hasn’t been on the floor of the Senate, and he may not address the legislative body prior to their vote this evening.

One of the notable additions was the Tax Extender Bill, which was added at a cost of $100bil to the Rescue bill, and is not offset.

Review the bill below.
