Grover Norquist and Americans for Tax Reform ATR served as a "conduit" for funds that flowed from Abramoff's clients to surreptitiously finance grass-roots lobbying campaigns.

Grover Norquist has denied that he did anything wrong, and has not been charged with any crime.

I dunno if you're serious about correcting me on calling your 1978 Honda CB 750K a "Yamaha" or if you're turning the joke around on me. I suspect the latter. If so, good job!
Yours was an H1 500 Mach III, that was followed by the H2 750 Mack IV (also a triple). A friend of mine had one that he rescued from some shrubs/weeds that had engulfed it in someone's back yard. Now that bike was mental. He referred to it as a flexi flyer. Other fond references included the notion that it was hinged in the middle. I recall a high school classmate having one and he'd smoke the tire while hoisting the front in a rather spectacular wheelie. Those bikes weren't meant for turning, just straight line lunacy, zero to WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH in nanoseconds.

You'll find I don't take much of anything seriously.

Only if it really is grass roots and doesn't do things like sway people into supporting foreign sweat shops. Abramoff and Ralph Reed are sleaze buckets. Norquist managed to dodge responsibility, but the three of them are cut from the same cloth.

I pointed out that he was not going to testify as scheduled before his resignation. This is congruent with DiRucci's comments as well. You seem to read things that aren't there.

If a conservative is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church. A liberal non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced.(Unless it's a foreign religion, of course!)

yes they were sleeze. regardless, lobbying is te foundation of our nation. you may dislike some of them, but others may dislike the ones you favor.

civil rights fighters were lobbying for change. Suffragettes were lobbying for their cause. it is what we do in this country.

It is a win win

If they decide not to hear it, that means that 8 is struck down and the California courts have won.

If they do decide to hear it, the outcome of that will have national consequences and may affect such measures in other states.

Dont be too disapointed if they decide not to hear it, that too, is a win.
