GOVERNOR JERRY BROWN: “Tom you used the phrase ‘policy – good policy’, but I want to unpack that term a little bit. Inside the policy, you need a law, you need a rule, you need the coercive power of government to say ‘do this.’ Now you have to be wise and don’t say something stupid or try to order something stupid, but the fact is the regulations supported by the laws drive innovation.”

    Hey Jerry – when did “we, the people” give you the right to be coercive. I thought it was of the people, by the people and for the people.

    You need to feel the WILL of the people. Who pays who?

    Hey Jerry, you still trying to run that bankrupt state out west? Thought you’d be in jail by now. Instead of worrying about CO2 you should be building more reservoirs you ole criminal clown you…….

    Spoken like a true “Democratic” Party man. Democratic my anal sphincter. All such people are about money and power: They lie to us to get elected. The put us down. Keep us from making good livings; having full lives and “the American dream!” Then they steal from us, have secret foreign bank number accounts for taking bribes and more. Pardon while I vomit and reach for something….

    Google “Two Minute Conservative” for clarity.

    Jerry, did your state flunky find the potential for oil on your private land as you requested? How about all that “dirty oil” your state is making out in Bakersfield? By the way, your 75% increase in Canadian crude oil shipments to California is getting bumped up.
    Left-wing hipocrascy at its best – oil is “bad” if it buys votes, oil is “good” if it fills your & your buddies pockets.

    There’s only on “C” in RNC troll.

    You can always spot a troll when he copies and pastes his remark to multiple stories. Do those rich Democrats part with enough money to keep you irrelevant?
