More Shit Spewing out of Texas — Just What the Country Needs
They’re already trying to dumb down an already dumber-than-dirt education system with their retarded "history" books. Isn’t that enough?
And now, Texas’ biggest oil companies are trying to insert themselves into the internal politics of another state. A California initiative has already gotten enough signatures to qualify for the November ballot.
If this initiative gets passed in November, it will overturn California’s climate change law. This ballot measure is being pushed by
I thought the Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) initiative — defeated by California voters two weeks ago — was the most blatant corporate hijacking of the initiative process I’d ever heard of. (I already posted about that here and here.)
But at least PG&E is a California company. I hope California’s voters will tell these all-hat-and-no-cattle rednecks to get the fuck out of California and go back to Texas with their own kind.
And how’s this for a euphemism: this oil industry power grab is titled “the California Jobs Initiative.”
Governor Schwarzenegger is determined to fight this oil industry takeover. California’s climate change law is part of Schwarzenegger’s legacy. He was the Great White Hope for millions of rightwads when he became governor in 2003, but then he went all RINO and treehugger on them. He said:
“This initiative sponsored by greedy Texas oil companies would cripple California's fastest-growing economic sector, reverse our renewable energy policy and decimate our environmental progress for the benefit of these oil companies' profit margins. I will not allow this to happen on my watch.”
You go Governator.
Another opponent of the Big Oil Giveaway said: “The Texas oil companies think if they can kill their clean energy competition in California, they can do it everywhere.”
eBitch Meg Whitman — running for California governor this November — is in favor of this Texas Oil Takeover of the California legislature. I don’t know anything about political strategy, but I think opponents should be running ads asking Meg Whitman which state she wants to govern — Texas or California.
