    Just read that the CEO of EBay(no guns or ammo for sale allowed) is running for Gov. of Ca. as a conservitive. She said she has big bucks to make it happen.
    Is she a liberal Republican or a right leaning democrat?
    Your thoughts on the implication of this.

    Considering how anti-gun eBay is, and all their idiotic rules, petty rules enforcement, and their inequity in handling fraud, what do you think?

    California deserves just what they are getting. You elect garbage you get garbage! Got out in 91 and never looked back. Taxes have bankrupted the state and they still don't know why!


    Get out while you can!

    Sounds like more Hope & Change rhetoric.

    Guessing it probably don't take much to be called a "conservative" in California.


    If you're heterosexual and once saw a business you thought was sorta okay, that probably does it.


    If that business happens to be your own - you're the most rare and savored delicacy in California politics, because "you employed people!"

    This is hilarious - Ebay has lobbied and dodged paying Federal tax on commerce that occurs thru their business for years. Now the CEO of Ebay is going to tell Californians how, when and what kind of tax YOU are going to have to pay. LOL!!! Don't forget - Ebay owns Paypal or is it the other way around!??!!

    VERY CONSERVATIVE and the right person for the job!She knows how to make $ and control costs w/o union help and government loans. Plus she is not a blue blood: she worked hard for her sucess. Don't confuse Ebay's stupid policy of selling hulls etc w/ her right wing beliefs!

    This oughta' be fun to watch. Another filthy rich CEO buying a public office and running on "conservative values". Oh yeah, and how about her gun views?
    Check her company and I believe you'll find her position is REAL CLEAR.


    Vote for more garbage Kalifornia. Then do us all a favor and please seal your borders so the rest of us aren't exposed to the spread of your government parasite mentality.

    YES, that's what I'm saying, she works for a board of directors( why don't you check out who is on the board) with company that is incorportaed in the state of Calif.Do yourself a favor and do some homework on who she is, what she has acomphlised,and what she stands for before you piss all over her and cheap shot her. We need her to get elected there: she is electable in that mess of a State!

    FYI, John Wayne would NOT be electable in California!

    In my opinion, she is a liberal, because she is VERY anti-gun!

    Not that it matters, but Meg Whitman hasn't been CEO of Ebay for 2 years. She retired.

    Meg Whitman was CEO of ebay when they implemented their "no gun" policy. In a letter from "the office of the president" she states: " most items we permit for sale on eBay are not designed with the intent to cause harm or are not likely to be used to cause harm." She also states: " executives and our Trust and Safety team determined that any item required to fire a gun has no place on eBay. We determined that this policy change was in the
    best interest of promoting a safe marketplace for all members."


    Where does Meg Whitman stand on the issues:

    Gun Control: Meg favors the "assault weapons ban" currently in place in California. She also thinks that the San Francisco ban on handguns is "right for them".

    She supports abortion rights including late term abortions. She favors public funding for abortions.

    She is for "border control' but does not want to cut welfare or health care benefits for illegal aliens as we "have to protect the children"

    She is in favor of opening up irrigation for farmers and slowing the implementation of various "green" bills.

    She favors extending required unpaid time off for state employees and will consider a 10% across the board reduction in force.

    Of course her positions mimic almost all the candidates in California at this time.

    It is ironic that democrat Jerry Brown filed an amicus brief supporting the NRA in their efforts to overturn Chicago's gun ban. He also supported the supreme court decision that overturned the DC gun ban. Of course his prior actions on banning 50 cal guns and semi autos works against him.

    Interesting politics in California.

    Meg Whitman is a granola crunching eastern patrician type of personality. She is ruthless in the pursuit of what she wants to make happen, which is why ebay became the success it is. If her values were truly conservative I would champion her but she is actually morally and ideologically insipid. She admits to not participating in or voting in the political process for decades because she was single mindedly pursuing her personal goal of financial success, but now suddenly she is the politically savvy person to take on all the players who have spent those same decades in the realm, learning every political trick in the books, and she thinks she will force them to do her bidding. I doubt it. In my opinion if you want another Arnold elect Meg.

    Great, another anti-gun RINO. These clods are a cancer on the GOP and need to be excised.

    I guess this old saying sums it up best... "Don't piss down my back and tell me it's raining."

    If she wants to get elected in this state, the last thing she will want to do is present herself as a hardcore conservative. She will have to play both sides if she is to have a chance at getting elected.

    Meg Whitman makes case on how she's different

    -- Guns: She said she supports Second Amendment rights, but that an assault weapon ban and handgun restrictions are "probably the right thing in California." She does not own a gun.

    Another useless sack of crap our state doesn't need.
