    Ten of 'em makes a billion, and Texas Units is a measure of their wealth. The Kochs have a thousand Texas Units.

    I agree. They can spend and spend, and their coffers refill so rapidly that Citizens United opened the door for these sorts to spend until they win.

    The way they are situated, they will never run out of cash. Our $5, $20, $50 and $100 contributions have to buy tougher, funnier and smarter ads so voters understand the game.

    The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie, deliberate, contrived and dishonest, but the myth, persistent, persuasive and unrealistic. ~ John F. Kennedy

      done is so dangerous. Hell, it is why unlimited wealth is so dangerous. Courts make judgment calls ALL the time, balancing one set of rights against others. These levels of wealth and spending are existential threats to the credibility of the system, and even to the system itself. They must be restricted.

      I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do, because I notice it always coincides with their own desires. - Susan B. Anthony
