Hi There, Hoodies and Hoodettes!

Shoot-em-up Charlie here!

By now you know that I get to help vigilante-types kill unarmed people-- and the best part is, it's perfectly LEGAL!

Thanks to my friends at the NRA & ALEC, who write the laws and then feed them to politicians all over the country.

If you feel threatened by a punk packin' dangerous Skittles-- shoot, shoot, SHOOT!

But ALEC & I, we're not just one-shot wonders.

We're funded by millions and millions of corporate dollars working to undermine things like . . . Health Care Reform!

In other words, I help corporations SHOOT you, and then deny you coverage for a pre-existing condition!

It's all about getting the laws we write into statehouses everywhere through our complicit lawmakers.

Which'd sound like a crazy conspiracy if it weren't truuuue!

We write so many laws and distribute them through our member-politicians, it's like shooting fish in a barrel.

From blocking Health Care Reform, to gutting environmental laws to busting unions and pushing private prisons, it's a right-with, rapid-fire turkey shoot!

But LAWS don't kill people.

Laws introduced by pliable politicians backed by a shadowy organization funded by huge corporations kill people.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
