The Nemesis of the California Bureaucracy Is Running for the California Assembly
The Nemesis of the California Bureaucracy Is Running for the California Assembly: On three separate occasions, I’ve written about the determined struggle of one man in the face of appalling political correctness, anti-Americanism, and bureaucratic senselessness. In Orcutt, California, about an hour north of the Reagan Ranch on the beautiful Central Coast, Steve LeBard has been fighting for years to build a privately funded veterans' monument, which would encircle an American flag and be located just off the exit from the highway coming from nearby Vandenberg Air Force Base. At every turn, however, the California Department of Transportation (CalTrans) has blocked LeBard's efforts. Among other things, CalTrans has ruled that displaying an American flag is an impermissible act of public expression.
