Prop 23 and co-opting the Tea Party

San Jose Mercury News:

Shirlee Pierce, a tea party activist in Solano County, says she contacted the Yes on 23 campaign on her own after doing research about the ballot initiative on the Internet. She's now organizing people to hand out Yes on 23 fliers at a Fairfield Safeway. "To begin with, nobody knows if there really is global warming or if it is just a big scam to enrich the solar companies,"said Pierce, who is retired.

Apparently, enriching out-of-state oil companies (who are meddling in our state's politics) is preferable to enriching local solar companies who are actually providing new, green jobs.

  1. Robert,

    Great comment on the Mercury News piece!

    I wonder which world all the Shirlees are looking at every day when they do what they do. Is it the same as the world I'm seeing?

    I have to wonder...

    Cheers, Rick
