I agree with George Gascon. WHY doesn't the Danville Express show some guts and find out who the 17 corrupt clowns in Sacramento voted in favor of the cell phone industry. These SOB's should be exposed for what they lack in honesty.
I hope everyone is listening to me...Thank you Jilia Pardini from Alamo.
From the LA Times:
"11 Republicans and seven Democrats blocked passage of the kill-switch bill, which was strongly backed by law enforcement but aggressively opposed by the telecom industry. Needing a simple majority for passage, the measure fell two votes short, 19-17.
All the "yes" votes were cast by Democrats, except for one Republican: Sen. Ted Gaines of Rocklin. But six Democrats voted "no" and one abstained. They were Sens. James Beall Jr. of San Jose, Lou Correa of Santa Ana, Cathleen Galgiani of Stockton, Ed Hernandez of West Covina, Ricardo Lara of Bell Gardens, Norma Torres of Pomona and Ben Hueso of San Diego (the abstention)."
I guess Republican politicians voting against the interests of consumers at the direction of big business isn't considered "news" since they didn't even bother to name those cretins.
Incidentally, when an industry spokesman says something will hurt "innovation" he's referring to the industry's "innovative" ways of extracting more money from the rest of us without providing any thing of value.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
