Within days the U.S. Supreme Court is going to issue its ruling on the case Janus vs AFSCME. This case, if the ruling goes as expected, is going to overturn current law that requires public employees to pay union dues. Here in California, however, the real story is how laughable is the notion that this ruling will make any difference. Because in California, along with a handful of other large, urbanized, very blue states, public sector unions exercise nearly absolute political control. They have infinite patience, the deepest pockets, and implacable resolve.
