    You say that as if you think anything the SPLC does is admirable or worthy.
    should read:
    You say that as if you don't think anything the SPLC does is admirable or worthy
    am i correct?

    the fact is, this is a very minor budget for such an important national institution, which is much needed.

    i think it is troll-like, to be bringing this up now at a time when we all have a legitimate need to know what is going on with mitt romney's off-shore accounts, and his taxes.

    this is a hit piece that is posing a false equivalency betgween mitt romney who is a gigantic bain in the ass, and a liberal institution which is fighting poverty and racism and hate-speech at every level across the country.

      But I disagree with the atmospherics his diary emit by a poor and hostile choice of word.

      I'm sending this diary to SPLC for direct response, whether to me personally or to this website.

      I think investing in America is a great thing, the best, in fact. But I also know that investment in America is increasingly a dicey proposition.

      And btw in discussing this with my own peeps in accounting-finance-investment, there are plenty of nonprofits invested in hedge funds and offshore accounts. Just as our huge pension funds.

      The likely reason for that?

      Because all entities, for-profit or not, get their accounting and investment advice from the same corps accolytes (graduates and hired underlings headed to partnership in accounting and investment firms, if you will) of right wing schools of business (all purchased and endowed by right wing money at this point).

      I suggest that others reading this diary also contact SPLC for a statement and (hopefully) explanation.
