  •  Not only is $150 million chicken feed in the grand (0+ / 0-)

    scheme of things, but campaigning for public office is a much better endeavor than fabricating drones and outfitting them with missiles.
    Gentle persuasion should not be a euphemism.

    Kudos to Adelson.

    I have said all along that Citizens United was properly decided. Trying to regulate the behavior of political candidates by putting limits on how much the electorate, which is, after all, doing the hiring, can spend was/is inappropriate, albeit typical of Congress' preference for triangulation and indirection. Targeting one entity for the purpose of affecting the behavior of another (candidates via voters) is also the mode of behavior employed by bad actors such as kidnappers, terrorists and extortionists. It is also the behavior of cowards -- people reluctant to confront those with whom they disagree. The Capitol Hill Gang is full of them. Our Uncle Cons.

    We organize governments to deliver services and prevent abuse.
