Mike Gatto’s Super Sweet Policy on Iran

You may be aware that legislation that would prohibit publicly owned California companies from entering into business relationships with entities that have current contracts with any facet of the Iranian energy sector is being debated in our great state. As a State Assembly Member, Mike Gatto supports this divestment initiative; speaking for myself, I can say that I expect no less from such a super sweet dude.

Mike Gatto’s stated opinion on the matter is that California, as the 8th-largest economy in the world, is in a position to wield a significant influence on the capabilities of Iran’s energy sector. He believes that Californians’ tax dollars should not end up in the hands of companies that abet Iran’s nuclear aspirations. And goddamn it, he’s bang-on, bull’s-eye, donnkey-punching right. Correct. Affirmative. Bingo.

Iran is, by most measures, not a sweet country. It’s run with an iron fist by theocratic thugs. Its women have few if any rights. Its people are not free to speak their minds. Its cuisine is bland and unimaginative. Its track record in major international sporting competitions is spotty at best. Mike Gatto is a sweet dude for having the courage to take a strong and decisive stand on this salient and contentious issue.

(Daulton Gatto is no relation to Mike Gatto. That they share a surname is purely coincidental.)

I am a sweet dude, but nowhere near as sweet as Mike Gatto. (I am not related to Mike Gatto. Our identical last name is purely a coincidence.)

  1. very insightful commentary on iran, daulton. i for one do not think that any companies should be doing business with a terrorist state like iran. i can’t believe any companies would even consider such practices. it’s a good thing we have honorable men like mike gatto at the reins of power.
