Can't believe this is happening in PRK. 'In God' motto placed above city seal; Latin saying also displayed with seal. By Jim Scott KGET 17 News 07/31/02 Bakersfield - Placing the motto 'in God we trust' on city hall was an idea that sparked passionate debate in Bakersfield. Tuesday night, city leaders dedicated two national mottos that now adorn the council chambers. Above the city's seal, the words 'in God we trust'. Below the seal, 'e pluribus unum', latin for 'out of many, one.' Councilwoman Jacquie Sullivan pushed the project. It was approved by a six-to-one vote of the council. Sullivan says she couldn't be happier. "It's beautiful, it's wonderful, just perfect," said Sullivan. "It's intended to encourage, inspire, to bring god back into our thinking our lives, our government. To inspire our policy makers and government officials, so I'm very pleased. It's wonderful." Outside council chambers the Hall of Documents were also dedicated. Replicas of 17 historic American documents will be placed on the wall. Back Wow...amazing. [b][blue]NAKED[/blue][/b]

Other than the time spent away from college, I lived in Bakersfield for the first 23 of my 24 years. It's an example of those stories you typically hear about California: the state tends to be fairly conservative outside of the two major population bases (and other than all the illegals runnning around up and down in between).
