And here we are, at the end of the first full week in January. That didn’t take nearly as long as I thought it would.
Koch-backed political coalition, designed to shield donors,
raised $400 million in 2012
“The political network spearheaded by conservative billionaires Charles and David Koch has expanded into a far-reaching operation of unrivaled complexity, built around a maze of groups that cloaks its donors, according to an analysis of new tax returns and other documents.”
It’s almost as if…as if…
But wait. That can’t be right. Can it?
Well, yeah, it can. And folks are finally starting to notice. It’s about time, after 30 years of Conservative howling about deregulation. 2014 promises to be a nasty, nasty year, if we can’t figure out how to force Corporate America to let our people go.
So here’s a preview. Watch what this year looks like, because with the mid-term elections, we’re still three years away from the real deal. The big question I have right now: How do we get rid of Citizens United so this nonsense stops for good? That’s an excellent question. Here’s what the Huffington Post has to say on the subject:
- Our Mission Is Clear: Amend Citizens United
- IRS Sets Its Sights on Political ‘Dark Money’
- You Didn’t Pay Attention To Money In Politics In 2013, So We Boiled Down The Whole Year For You
Well here. Let’s see how the Dark Money likes it when we get all uppity and try to make things better for ourselves. Wait. You mean we can’t? Whut?
Right. Because while corporations are people, my friend, people AREN’T corporations. And that, dear friends, is the sum total of what’s wrong with America right now. You heard it here…well…now, really. I’m just spreading the Word. It’s what I do.
