California: Is a sequel of Enron scandal scamming state?

There are 5 comments on the www.sacbee.com story from Jul 30, 2012, titled California: Is a sequel of Enron scandal scamming state?. In it, www.sacbee.com reports that:

Customers of PG&E and other utilities may have thought that manipulation of the electricity markets was a sorry part of California history, one that ended when Enron, the thieving Texas energy giant, went bankrupt amid scandal and federal indictments.

But it has come back, if accusations leveled by the California Independent System Operator are true. The ISO, which entered the lexicon a decade ago when California deregulated the electricity market and blackouts ensued, is a nonprofit corporation that oversees the state's electrical transmission system.

CA is an example of what is awaiting other states:

bankruptcy, high taxes, uncontrolled borders, houses one third of those on government assistance, anarchy in the streets, pension costs out of control and a school system once the BEST in the USA is now one of the WORST in the USA.

CALIFORNIA=symbol of the decline of America

and a state that is becoming a 1 party state.

Republicans are disappearing, only democrats in control.

That's the future of America, if Romney isn't elected and the republicans don't reclaim the senate.

and don't forget Princess Nancy Pelosi's $18K PER MONTH congressional office CA taxpayers are funding

and how the 9th Circuit judges have planned a LAVISH get together in Hawaii to 'discuss important matters' complete with surf lessons-bountiful buffets, first class flight and 5 star hotels.

And one wonders why America and in particular CALIFORNIA is in economic and social trouble.

Don't let YOUR state diminish to this point.

Rally and vote OUT ALL DEMOCRATS in 2012!

Reclaim your state and your country!

Yet, the main problems of California are:
1) Recovering from the last multi-billion dollar DE-REGULATION Power scam perpetrated by GOP darlings ENRON, and now this latest gift of de-regulation.

2) Tottering on bankruptcy, while still sending $1300 through the federal government from every man, woman, and child, to support welfare sucking states like Alaska, New Mexico, Virginia, Mississippi, North Dakota, Louisiana, West Virginia, Maryland, Alabama, South Dakota, Hawaii, Kentucky, Montana, plus 20 more states that suck in more than they pay out.

from the article: JPMorgan doesn't own power plants, but instead holds power contracts with generators allowing it to deal on energy trading markets in various parts of the country, including California.

Does that apply to oil, mortgages, corn, etc, etc. Seems the way to make lots of money is not by making things and selling them but by trading contracts on the 'market'.
