    Just caught up on that governor thread

    I won't pretend to have an opinion, but Kid Presentable presented an interesting question right at the end there:

    Can the governor just threaten to take away any agency's funding for whatever reason he feels like if the head of that agency doesn't comply with his resignation demand?

    With the implication being: Regardless of the legality (which is best left to the courts to decide, I think that's apparent), would you be okay with this turn of events?

    Spool I wouldn't want to put words in your mouth, but I imagine your response to this would be 'Under these circumstances (i.e. the abhorrent behavior of the agency head in question), absolutely. It's an extraordinary situation that requires extraordinary action.'

    In that case, I'm super comfortable with it. In general, the governor has a line-item veto, so you don't need anything after the "if" in KP's question. He can veto things for whatever reason.

    Sure, but the threat he made is the discussion then. And I certainly don't feel comfortable weighing in on that.

    It's not 'taking away funding', it's 'applying economic sanctions as a domestic policy tool'.

    Very true. Let's take it back to that thread, though - my most recent post touches on this, I think - it's my opinion that the governor should have a tool to deal with this sort of issue without having to resort to economic sanctions, if only because he is forced to apply it so imprecisely.

    He does have that tool.

    It's called the court of public opinion.

    Perry's got a big mouth and people like him. If he can't use that to get what he wants he has no business running for anything higher than dog catcher.

    My city's mayor is case-in-point that the court of public opinion is a fickle and enigmatic institution.

    I'd like to see something more defined for situations like this.

    I'm not comfortable for the only recourse for removing someone like this from office when they refuse your request that they resign is "request harder!".

    Oh that while system is fucked up for sure.

    What are ya gonna do? It's Texas

    As my mayor continues to serve, it's apparently the only power we have at the municipal level!

    The only thing we haven't tried is a strongly-worded condemnation from our provincial premier, who said she was 'uncomfortable' with the idea of butting into Toronto's politics.

    Funnily enough in Florida the governor could remove her from office himself and appoint whoever he wanted to replace her.

    See now that's the kind of sexy power I can get behind.

    But then what do you expect? I come from a mixed background: Chiefs on one side and Monarchs on the other.

    All this 'voice of the people' stuff just makes me nervous.

    I like when one, solitary individual who SURELY has no political leanings gets to make all the decisions. :bz

    Wait, are you implying that you are the Queen?

    I was under the impression that you are a Princess.

    Also, duh, the Queen is magic and can teleport so that she can visit all the good little monarchists on Queen Victoria Day.

    It's Commonwealth Christmas!

    The only way I know how to make beans and rice is making it in absurdly large quantities >_>
