Fiona Ma is a loser.

Perhaps you could enlighten us as to your winning accomplishments in life, Anon?

Needless to say, I was very impressed with Fiona Ma, Speaker Pro Tem, California State Assembly, and champion of small business, improving California's economy, public safety, protection of victims of domestic violence, and high speed rail.

Her education background includes a BA, MS in Taxation, as well as an MBA, and is licensed in CA as a CPA since 1992.

Ma authored State legislation to ban toxic chemicals known as phthalates in baby products statewide, which became the model for Federal legislation authored by US Senator Dianne Feinstein, signed into consumer product safety improvement legislation in 2008.

Other than having a good mind, she seems easy to talk to, an excellent speaker, and responder when asked questions (no ducking), and she seems sincere and genuine about the good work she is doing.

Hard to know what problem Anon 1:45pm is having this time. Maybe Anon chewed on too much of those phthalates toxins as a child.

Does this look like a loser to you?
community work,
toxins in toys,
public works and high speed rail.

I'd rather be a tiger for a year , than a sheep for the rest of my life said...

if she is a champion for small business then she needs to be fired. I wonder if she has visited small business lately, they all hate her. Why? she hasn't done a darn thing for small business. Take a look around sheep, what do you see?
