    It certainly is a good way to get people's minds off of his rightist counterparts, the infamous Koch Brothers, isn't it?

    Looks like just maybe they've managed to buy themselves, not a rag-tag group of protestors but a whole presidential candidate!!

    If you're all willing to "follow the tortured path" you've taken to connect Soros to The Wall Street Protest (George gave money to The Tides Foundation, with stipulations as to what the money could be used for. The Tides gave money to some Canadian magazine who gave space to promoting the protest. The magazine itself has never received money from Soros, personally. The Tides says that the money given to the magazine was NOT stipulated for protest usages, etc..) then you should have no trouble connecting the dots here.

    Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain has cast himself as the outsider, the pizza magnate with real-world experience who will bring fresh ideas to the nation's capital. But Cain's economic ideas, support and organization have close ties to two billionaire brothers who bankroll right-leaning causes through their group Americans for Prosperity.

    AFP tapped Cain as the public face of its "Prosperity Expansion Project," and he traveled the country in 2005 and 2006 speaking to activists who were starting state-based AFP chapters from Wisconsin to Virginia.

    Cain does not include his AFP work on his biography on his website.

    Through his AFP work he met Mark Block, a longtime Wisconsin Republican operative hired to lead that state's AFP chapter in 2005 as he rebounded from an earlier campaign scandal that derailed his career. He settled a suit in 2001 accusing him of illegally coordinating a Wisconsin Supreme Court justice's re-election with an outside group. Block agreed to pay $15,000 and sit out of politics for three years.

    Block is now Cain's campaign manager. Other aides who had done AFP work were also brought on board.

    Cain's spokeswoman Ellen Carmichael, who recently left the campaign, was an AFP coordinator in Louisiana. His campaign's outside law firm is representing AFP in a case challenging Wisconsin campaign finance regulations. At least six other current and former paid employees and consultants for Cain's campaign have worked for AFP in various capacities.

    And Cain has credited Rich Lowrie, a Cleveland businessman who served on AFP's board of advisors from 2005 to 2008, with being a key economic adviser and with helping to develop his 999 plan.

    AFP spokesman Levi Russell said Cain has spoken at dozens of AFP rallies and events over the years to support a number of the group's activities.

    Cain continues to work with the AFP which has often covered his travel expenses or paid a "pretty modest honorarium" although he has not accepted money from them since he became a presidential nominee candidate.

    While several other candidates will be at an Iowa Republican Party dinner on Nov. 4, Cain is scheduled to be in Washington mingling with activists at AFP's annual "Defending the American Dream" summit. He is the only confirmed presidential candidate for the event.

    ROFLMAO

    Yeah, we need more "great Americans" who make a habit of polluting our atmosphere, our streams and our land and otherwise destroy the basic necessities of life like food, water and air.

    The John Birch Society?

    Really, 13? I mean, really?

    Really

    BTW here is something titillating for you, the Koch Bros fund the Americans for Prosperity, they are connected to the Cain campaign. Dems think this is bad and Cain is part of their media campaign, showed up at the WaPo and Yahoo,

    Long ties to Koch brothers key to Cain’s campaign - The Washington Post

    Long ties to Koch brothers key to Cain's campaign - Yahoo! News


    The bircher thing is bs IMO since the Koch brothers are libertarians (support for CATo for example) However if you want to play that game we could talk about Soros helping NAZI's send Jews to the gas chambers and looting their homes.

    Those are nothing more than a rehashing of the article I cited originally. Why would the same story be 'titilating?"


    We could - but you'd be wrong again - just like you were last time it was discussed.

    What's wrong, 13, got tired of telling black people what racism really is, so you've moved on to saying that Jews are the real nazis?

    You know, the kind of smear material you post repeatedly is convincing to one person, you.

    Your "sources" are so often 100% distortion and outright lies, that the rest of us see it for what it is.

    And here's where it's ugly and offensive:

    On subjects like the Shoah, specifically how one survived, what one did, and when we can say one was a "collaborator," there's a thorny enough question without rightie distortion fields.

    We- meaning Jews - see the right doing this, and it doesn't matter to the right who the target is. In this particular case, you want to hate on Soros, you make up and distort events from a tragedy that resonates -- for us -- in a real way, and you attempt to make that the "big issue" for your smear purposes.

    I don't need another referendum on Soros, and I sure as hell don't need rightist clowns attempting to tweak my Abrahamic conscience with quintessentially anti-semitic tactics such as this.... particularly when the majority of these righties consider me condemned to the flames of eternal perdition for just the same reasons as have pertained since Christianity coalesced on these doctrinal points nearly two millenia ago.

    It's bad enough that some random righty wants to judge Soros' actions, and mischaracterize them as being a "nazi collaborator."

    It's way worse that the whole rightist smear turns on a bunch of exaggerated half-facts. Like I said, no desire to re-de-bunk your bullsh1t on this one.

    I am just informing you that as with any other population you can probably carve off some folks with this sort of crap. But the vast majority will look upon you and your hate-machine with disdain and disgust, as is fitting.

    Just drop it, you've been proven wrong on this one repeatedly.

    Or continue to spew your crap out into the airwaves. Just understand, nobody's buying, except your buddies in the echo chamber.
