case this whole "Citizens United" thing leaves
you scratching your little punkin' head in confusion,
here's an example of why it's such an onerous
Supreme Court decision.
A group called "Concerned Taxpayers of America"
has been running attack ads against Democrats
in both Oregon and Maryland. Records show they
the campaign kitty.
The entire half-million came from exactly two people. Daniel G. Schuster Inc.,
Mills, Md., concrete firm, gave two donations to the group totaling $300,000
New York hedge fund executive Robert Mercer gave
the group $200,000.
Now, how much money do you have to spend on campaign ads?
This sort of thing was illegal until this year. And if the Democrats don't gain
Senate then the buying of elections by the rich is the new norm.
for grins I ran Fox News' slogan "Fair
and Balanced" through an anagram maker.
Here are the most entertaining results:
A Rand fiend cabal.
Banal, candid fear.
I love technology.
To Restore Sanity Comes Home!
I wanted, fervently, to attend the Rally
to Restore Sanity rally this coming 30th of October,
but three days, minimum, away from the office
wasn't in the cards for me.
So I was elated to hear that the rally has metastacized,
in a good way, and is now in almost every state
in the union. In addition, several foreign
sites are hosting their own rally, too.
The nearest rally to me is in Austin, Texas and
currently there are about 3500 RSVPs. (Rumors
that a Dallas rally is in the offing, too) But
the word is spreading and the numbers are growing.
Share this info with a friend or two, won't you?

This is good news to a lot of people but, seriously, if you can make the Washington,
D.C. event then please, by all means, go. Tell
'em Lefty sent ya.
