Duff, the No P'ers are drowning under the flood of oil dollars lavished on them for a campaign of lies & deception.
On Oil In, Oil Out

Wow, Marino is vp of Legal&Corporate affairs and she doesn't know that approved and existing operations are exempt? Or maybe she needs to be added to the list of North County fib tellers. The measure contains clear language about existing operations and furthermore the county has crafted a draft ordinance to streamline the exemption application process. Don't be fooled by these slick operators who are spending huge sums of money to influence a few undecideds.

You see Skinner ? The conduct of oil producers is so lacking in ethos that you don't believe it happened. Well it's a matter of public record that employees and management of Union Oil knew about leaks for around twenty years in both cases, yet looked away because they were getting what they wanted. That lack of ethos is still in evidence across America every day . You guys are not to be trusted.
On Oil and Drinking Water, Too

Hey Skinner, oil producers are the most corrupt group in all of industry. Don't believe it? Look it up. Still waiting for your explanation as to why operators at Guadalupe and Avila looked the other way on known leaks for twenty years before being found out. They knew but the bucks were flowing so who gave a damn. Same attitude pervades now. Just look at Greka and their recent record. You guys can't be trusted . YES ON P !

My understanding of physics and chemistry are poor. So help me out here Sheriff, nativegeo, Jarvis and any other drill baby drillers. Well casings are made of steel, right? Steel begins to rust as soon as first exposed to water, right? Acid is corrosive to steel, right? We've all seen steel rust through, right? Concrete cracks, right? Eternity is a long time , right? I suspect that our gung-ho oil industry friends and their legions of carpet bagging lobbyists with suitcases full of petrodollars will be long gone when our kids are dealing with the polluted environment these NoP'rs leave in their wake. YES ON P !
On Measure P: Who’s Scaring Whom?

Mr. Dolphin, in the case of Skinner, addressing him as Mr. was intuitive. "Catskinner" is slang for one who operates a bulldozer. While I've known a few female dozer operators, the odds were in my favor addressing this person as Mr. Now, in your case, I'm using Mr. mostly as a joking reaction to your concerns about gender, and assuming you will correct me as needed. Of more import to a real dolphin would be the decades long leakage of neurotoxins into the ocean at Guadalupe Dunes. A leakage that was known to exist by employees and management yet they all looked the other way because the bucks were flowing. I suspect not much has changed with an industry that can't seem to go a day without fouling the environment somewhere.

What's your point, Mr. dolphin?

Um.... thanks Skinner for demonstrating what willful ignorance exists within the industry. Maybe after you get done skinning the cats you could read up on what was leaked at Guadalupe. And Avila.

Yes Mr. Skinner, by every metric the willful pollution and subsequent clean up of Guadalupe Dunes by Union Oil is on an equal or larger scale than the Exxon Valdez disaster. Your not being familiar withthe facts while plastering these pages with pro oil devopment propaganda tells me all I need to know about you. Your cavalier attitude about the state of Guadalupe Dunes now reflects a lack of knowledge about the massive contamination, the decades that passed with Unocal employees and management fully aware of the leaks, the huge amount of toxic compounds that found their way into the ocean and river, and how Unocal resisted clean up mandates until forced to by the EPA. Next time we can talk about Avila Beach if you want more reasons why we don't trust you slick Willies.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. There he is, hired gun Thomas , in a spacious (note empty) and sparkly high rent headquarters paid for with big oil bucks all the while collecting his $200,000 plus per year taxpayer funded pension. Sure hope Supervisor Adam and the other Tea Party folks who are joining the NoP posse are ok throwing in with a fella whose benefits they so strongly and loudly oppose. Sure proves the idiom that politics makes for strange bedfellows to be true, doesn't it ?
