Well, I've gone to the trouble of sorting more, and I'm not about to let my hard work be wasted:<quoted text>That's okay. I get the general gist. Soros is quite transparent about his agenda. Cheney is much better at submerging his involvement in things other than oil, war, and making oodles of cash. I can see why he's admired in certain circles. Submerging one's involvement in Anti-American groups IS the agenda there.
Hope your dinner was lovely.
We had Bueno. Blech.
DEMOCRATIC PARTY: Soros' funding activities are devoted largely to helping the Democratic Party solidify its power base. In a Nov 2003 interview, Soros stated that defeating President Bush in 2004 "is the central focus of my life" ... "a matter of life and death." He pledged to raise $75 million to defeat Bush, and personally donated nearly a third of that amount to anti-Bush organizations. "America under Bush," he said, "is a danger to the world, and I'm willing to put my money where my mouth is." Claiming that "the Republican party has been captured by a bunch of extremists," Soros accuses the Bush administration of following a "supremacist ideology" in whose rhetoric he claims to hear echoes of "Nazi slogans."
