Shock! Jerry more sensible than Meg on Prop. 23/AB 32

John Seiler:

One of the weird things about the last gubernatorial debate is that Jerry Brown was more sensible on Prop. 23 than Meg Whitman.

Meg’s position doesn’t make any sense at all. As she explained, she opposes Prop. 23, which would suspend AB 32 until unemployment dropped to 5.5% for a year. AB 32 is, of course, the Jobs-Killing Act of 2006, and is supposed to reduce global warming, which is a hoax.

She insists that, as governor, she would suspend AB 32 for a year and “fix” it. But what if she doesn’t become governor? And even if she becomes governor, there’s no way she’s going to get any change at all past the jobs-killing obsessives who run the Democratic Party that has almost a two-thirds majority in the Legislature, and will next year too.

Jerry, at the debate, pointed out that “suspending” AB 32 for just a year would only create uncertainty. As Meg the businesswoman should know, a year is nothing to a business. Unlike governments, which only think about how much they can steal before the next election, businesses plan for the long term. All her program – defeat Prop. 23 and suspend AB 32 for a year — would do is create more uncertainty.

If Prop. 23 loses and Jerry becomes governor, at least businesses will know how they stand. Many will leave. But those that stay will have made the decision to stick it out, and will try to survive.

As I’ve said before, Meg should have embraced Prop. 23 and used it as a battering ram to smash Jerry and win the election. Instead, she listened to her puddin-headed advisers, whom she paid millions, and got only bad advice.

After she loses, she should ask her advisers for her money back.

    Griff Harsh, the husband of California gubernatorial candidate Nutmeg Whitman, acknowledged in a statement on Thursday that “it is possible” he received and wrote notes on a letter from the Social Security Administration back in 2003, regarding the former Housekeeper/Maid. The Harsh/ Whitman household then fired their housekeeper in June 2009 (after nine years of service), when Nutmeg handlers decided that she was an election liability.

    And now the Jill Armstrong, a former full-time nanny of the Harsh/ Whitman dungeon, came to the defense of the Housekeeper/Maid and told the San Francisco Chronicle that she believes Diaz’s claim because she “know[s] the family” and “what it was like.”

    Meg, Meg, Meg, where do I start, you have reportedly spent $140 million of your own money to get elected Governor but you couldn’t use some of it to get your housekeeper (after nine years of service) some legal help to get her papers, and worse you lied about it. Wow, what a WITCH, of course I meant it with a “B”.

    But your comments on holding employers accountable for hiring undocumented workers real takes the cake, I assume you exempt yourself and your husband, or will you be turning yourself in.

    Meg on holding employers accountable:

    Meg you think you can buy the election, but what puzzles many is if you real cared and loved California then why not do your civic duty and vote, seems more rhetoric than anything else.

    In good times we might give you a try but not in our disaster mode that we find ourselves in after that so-called outsider Independent Republican, named Arnold Schwarzenegger (sold to us by radio personalities John and Ken), ruined our state, yah we will trust another one of you liars, think not. And another thing nine years this maid was in your house, in your house and you failed to learned this major thing about her, come on this sounds like a huge lie that no one can believe in.

    Ebay paid out $200,000 because Nutmeg assaulted an employee, so it’s not the first time she has mistreated an employee. Good luck winning Nutmeg, money will buy you admiration from the majority just from the Gay Old Party (GOP), but not from all of California.

    The California Air Resources Board (CARB) has belatedly disclosed that its scientists have overestimated state diesel engine emissions by 340%. CARB is the powerful state agency charged with researching and regulating air quality standards. These diesel pollution estimates were the basis for costly 2007 regulations forcing businesses to cut diesel emissions by replacing or upgrading heavy-duty, diesel-fueled off-road vehicles used in construction and other industries.

    CARB said the overestimate was due to diesel pollution calculated during the economic recession, when 150,000 diesel-exhaust-spewing vehicles in California were shuttered. Independent researchers, however, found that gross overestimates in the CARB diesel emissions were attributable to chronically-flawed computer modeling systems.

    These flawed diesel pollution research regulations come from the same eco-obsessed CARD regulators that contrived the controversial 2006 California Global Warming Solutions Act (AB 32). California voters can delay the California Global Warming Solutions Act by voting for Prop. 23 on November 2nd. Prop. 23 would prudently suspend implementation of AB 32 greenhouse gas controls until the state’s unemployment rate is reduced to below an unemployment rate benchmark of 5.5%.

    Worse, last year members of the CARB learned that the author of critical studies on diesel engine pollution, Hien Tran, had falsified his academic credentials. Tran admitted his deception, and accepted a CARB demotion. However, Tran’s analyses remained the basis for the aforementioned pollution regulations imposed upon operators of trucks, buses and other diesel-powered machinery. The Tran study concluded that diesel “particulate matter” (soot) was responsible for about 1,000 additional California deaths each year. Tens of millions of dollars in engine upgrades where required of California diesel operators under the new regulations.

    Jerry Brown, the California Attorney General and Democrat gubernatorial candidate in the November 2nd election, should immediately order an investigation of CARB. Clearly, CARB’s radical and costly air pollution regulations have been corrupted by partisan, militant eco-group lobbying and green bureaucrats.

    What is clear from continuing climategate eruptions is that partisan ideologies and cultish environmentalism have replaced prudent science and rational environmental policy decisions. Militant environmentalism and green-obsessed bureaucrats have become an “axis of antagonism” that we can no longer afford.
