The United States of California ?

The 'STATE' of California has passed legislation and is suing the rest of us to conform to their law.
The Governor's money quote: "There's no legal basis for Washington to stand in our way."
Sorry Arnold but there is. Article VI paragraph two:
This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.
I love this part: ' Schwarzenegger accused the federal government of "ignoring the will of tens of millions of people" by failing to approve the legislation.'
Well Gov, California might be ignoring the will of a few hundred million of us that have yet to recognize your state as the center of our national government.
