    Some-one needs to JOIN "ALEC", and not get caught putting all the information shared by "ALEC"out to the PUBLIC. YES I'm talking about a SPY...

      years ago, but would be much harder today. My guess is that they scrub new employees well and the state legislators have a track record.

      •  You want to count on politicians to do "the right (0+ / 0-)

        thing", even (or especially) the wingnuts?

        Here's a hard and fast rule of life (which I sincerely believe that you're more than sophisticated enough to already know) "tell one person, and you might possibly have a secret, tell two, and good luck!"

        There can be no protection locally if we're content to ignore the fact that there are no controls globally.

          There is no doubt that speeches at their meeting can be recorded or summarized. I think this diary is about accessing copies of confidential documents.

            careers. Literally billions of dollars worth of business (and I'm obviously talking about the post- potsmuggler phase).

            "Confidential documents" - truly confidential - never yet seen or heard of one of those.

            Good luck with that!

      The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy;the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness
