Just got a robocall from Strickland Campaign

Just got a robocall from the Strickland campaign.  In it the recording said something about Hannah-Beth Jackson running a smear campaign against Strickland.  It said Strickland was on the ethics committee – wait there’s something funny about the words Strickland and ethics in the same sentence.  When I think of the Stricklands sending out Joel Angeles in an attempt to stop folks from peacefully protesting, where Angeles is now being brought to court for allegedly knocking an older gentleman on the ground, I have a hard time thinking of Strickland on any ethics committee.  My impression of Mr. Angeles, as I observed the occasion, was that he looked like a thug.

When I think of Strickland’s Green Wave Energy, that does nothing, reportedly having no employees or money, and a Stricland past voting record that was abysmal for the environment, I really have a hard time thinking of Strickland and ethics.  In my opinion, it seems the Stricklands are the ones running a smear campaign. This is not even to mention some of the creepy folk that have contributed to his campaign.  please see prior Strickland posts.

Time to clean up government.

Vote Ferial Masry and Hannah-Beth Jackson.  Let the Stricklands have the time to actually do something with their yet to launch company.

California’s Prop 8 is hateful and unethical

It is unbelievable that California voters must take time to vote on who has the right to marry.  Isn’t this a little too much meddling in personal privacy?  Isn’t this legalizing prejudice and hate?  Just where will this type of focus end?

We can’t allow our Constitution to dictate our personal lives or legalize prejudice.

Vote NO on 8
