    Yeah i'm going to believe the spin a right wing rage spits out. Its even disguised to look like US News and World Report. You fail. Keep expanding your universe by reading and believing this sh1t. Some day you'll be living in a card board box when the corporations have completely taken over. But then again they could be living at the same address after killing a great thing off with they're greed.

    Wow, color me convinced. No way to argue with that ironclad logic.

    You may want to forward this along to the US Chamber of Commerce. I'm sure they'd be interested in this startling revelation.

    If anyone in here thinks that the dems, or repubs, aren't laopdogs for big business, you're kidding yourselves. Big business loves anyone who has power, and the people who want power, love anyone who'll help them gain it.

    Khyos....

    If all this makes you feel better, and you believe that the water flows only in a single direction (towards Democrats)

    how does it make you feel to know that the flow is 3x as much toward republicans from annonomous donors? Thanks to citizens United, you don't have to know who these poeple are. Its odd to see you b!tching about a UNION funding, but not at all pi$$ed at annonomous donations to a 527, that is unaccounted for funding attack ads?


    or does that not matter much to you?

    here: there are many ways to "contribute" to a campaign
