stating the obvious...politicians set up the corporation in Delaware so they could hide their theft of taxpayer money that will go into this scam corporation (the corporation isn't a scam, what they do is). It will be money laundering operation..

Need to find a way to confine CARB, it's rules and regulations to California. After all is is the California Air Resources Board not the U.S. Air Resources Board.
