Meg Whitman-OIL GIANTS VELERO, TESORO and The Texas CONNECTIONS
MEG WHITMAN: SOME REAL DIRT! SOME VERIFIED! SOME NOT!
A week or so ago, equestrian Meg Whitman decided she needed some R&R away from her 'rigorous' absentia campaign for the California governorship, took one of her million dollar horses to TEXAS and rode 'those praries'. Along the way she met with some old friends. On her list were Governor Rick Perry of Texas and the hierarchy of the OIL GIANTS VELERO and TESORO, major backers of California's Proposition 23, the proposition that SUSPENDS AB 32, California's omnibus clean air act that would supercharge the State's job market with climate change industries.
Last night during her debate with Jerry Brown, a stiff, mannequin-like Meg reported she had been to Texas and reported glowing reports about THE TEXAS BUSINESS ATTRACTION MODEL with it's lack of 'redtape' and DEREGULATED STANDARDS.
Have you been to Texas? Seen it? Smelled it? Have you been to Houston with it's heavy pollution? Have you driven through a polluted-sand storm in the Lubbock area? Had your shiny car come out of that sand storm pitted with no chance of ever bringing it back to any reasonable presentation? Experienced the grainy polluted scummy sand coming inside your vehicle and staying there with no possibility of ever getting it out? We Have. Upon our return to California, we sold the car at a considerable loss. TEXAS IS UGLY.
Still, MEG GLOWS ABOUT THE TEXAS BUSINESS MODEL. Those of us who've experienced it don't.
A vote against Meg Whitman is also a vote against the VELERO-TESORO Agenda.
Whatcha got, Gloria?
