<quoted text>For the last time, also the first since I've never addressed it before, it is not a preposition; it is an adverb. Furthermore, the construction of the sentence was meant to be a a montage to carol (or somebody else so stupid), who couldn't speak English.(Must be all those mini strokes or just plainly stupidity, since I'm not sure it's carol) Whatever..., if you choose to ignore me, it would be quite agreeable with me.

"That up with which I will not put."
Attributed to Churchill (?)
A snobbish English teacher was sitting in an Atlanta airport coffee shop waiting for her flight back to Connecticut, when a friendly Southern belle sat down next to her.

‘Where y’all goin’ to?’ asked the Southern belle.

Turning her nose in the air, the snob replied ‘I don’t answer people who end their sentences with prepositions’.

The Southern belle thought a moment, and tried again.‘Where y’all goin’ to, bitch?’

Whether it's the Koch brothers or [George] Soros on the left or Sheldon," Gingrich said, "if you're going to have an election process that radically favors billionaires and is discriminating against the middle class—which we now have—then billionaires are going to get a lot of attention."
"The truth is, we desperately need an election reform which allows candidates to receive the same amount of money as super PACs,” he added.
So if you're going to let billionaires donate millions to Super PACs, the electoral system will be tilted in their favor and against the middle class. And the solution to that problem is to let the billionaires donate unlimited amounts directly to candidates, bypassing Super PACs?
Call me crazy, but that doesn't sound like campaign finance reform. That sounds like cutting out the middleman.

Actually, if the progressives would stop trying to push class warfare they would have to admit this ruling is not tilted to either party.

What the ruling allowed was for a person to donate to more than 18 people.

Dems have their fair share of big money donors.

This bill hopefully moves the money out of the PACs and into individual campaigns making it more transparent.

My comment -"Sorry (an apology) we have veered off into a new conversation about the US Guest program. Feel free to ignore us -(as in we don't expect you to join in)

Really, it is insane to have to explain this to another adult.

So, this is my final comment on this topic.

Maybe if you re-introduced your topic, some here may be interested in it.

I will ignore your posts so I am not accused of the above again.

Have a nice day.

When George Soros purchases American politics, Progressives sit silently behind the crickets. When Conservatives find patriots willing to put their money where their mouths are, Progressives suddenly leap to their four feet and begin barking.

Are you trying to insinuate that the money deposited into PACs are not "transparent"? PACs are very transparent.

Almost one third of the $104 million Rove’s American Crossroads super PAC spent during the last election cycle came from just five members of the Forbes rich list:

1. Harold Simmons: the Texas oilman, his wife and his company Contran collectively gave $19.5 million to Rove’s group.

2. Robert Rowling: the Dallas investor and owner of the Omni hotels and Gold’s Gym chains threw in $5 million total to Rove through his TRT Holdings.

3. Joseph Craft: the Oklahoma oil tycoon spent $3.35 million total on Rove’s group, through both his own trust and his family company Alliance Resource Partners.

4. Jerrold Perenchio: the one-time Univision chief gave American Crossroads $2.5 million through his media investment firm Chartwell partners.

5. B. Wayne Hughes: the founder of self-storage giant Public Storage and thoroughbred horse breeder may have had a premonition this time around, giving just $1 million to Rove’s group, compared to the $3.25 million he doled out for the 2010 midterm elections.

“Folks are disappointed with the results, but that doesn’t mean they’re dissatisfied,” American Crossroads public affairs spokesperson Jonathan Collegios said.“President Obama overspent Mitt Romney on ads by $154 million, and that’s probably understating the disparity because some of Romney’s ads were placed late in the game. Our donors are pleased because had American Crossroads’ ads not been there to bridge the gap, I don’t think we would’ve been so close in places like Ohio and Florida.”

This is really about allowing Republican billionaires to donate funds to fighting the next fight.

Yea, I noticed it as soon as I hit "Post Comment" but figured most people were smart enough to figure it out. Everyone should know by now I make a ton of typo's. It's just the way it is. I type too fast and don't waste time re-reading everything I post. Get used to it.
