I disappoint a lot of people, CO<quoted text>
You truly disappoint me LB.
Your new name is Tattoo because you certainly live on Fantasy Island.
Your world does not exist in Washington DC and State Houses all across America.
You are only represented in your own mind, or like minded people Rush 'From Drugs' Lying Corporatist Limbaugh.
The only difference is Multi-Millionaire Blowhard Limbaugh would fail a polygraph test miserably and you LB would pass with flying colors.
Very Sad, But Very True!
Good Band and good song BTW.
From Backing Apartheid to Assaulting Clean Energy, ALECs 'Institutional Corruption'/ December 11, 2013 / http://tinyurl.com/k62kotf
The secretive American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) has just ended a week-long meeting in Washington where corporate lobbyists worked with state lawmakers on model bills that will later be introduced in states nationwide. ALEC has reportedly drafted a number of new bills designed to prevent President Obama from cutting emissions, and to weaken state policies promoting clean energy. Now conservative groups across the United States are apparently planning a coordinated effort in six states to raise money for attacks on public sector rights and services in the key areas of education, healthcare, income tax and workers compensation. The proposals were coordinated by the ALEC-backed State Policy Network, an alliance of groups that act as incubators of conservative strategy at the state level.
Encore: United States of ALEC
November 30, 2012 / http://tinyurl.com/cuwj5qy
In an encore broadcast, Moyers & Company presents United States of ALEC, a report on the most influential corporate-funded political force most of America has never heard of ALEC, the American Legislative Exchange Council. A national consortium of state politicians and powerful corporations, ALEC presents itself as a nonpartisan public-private partnership. But behind that mantra lies a vast network of corporate lobbying and political action aimed to increase corporate profits at public expense without public knowledge.
In state houses around the country, hundreds of pieces of boilerplate ALEC legislation are proposed or enacted that would, among other things, dilute collective bargaining rights, make it harder for some Americans to vote, and limit corporate liability for harm caused to consumers each accomplished without the public ever knowing whos behind it. One Wisconsin politician describes ALEC as a corporate dating service for lonely legislators and corporate special interests.
United States of ALEC is a collaboration between Okapi Productions, LLC and the Schumann Media Center, headed by Bill Moyers, which supports independent journalism and public watchdogs including the Center for Media and Democracy, whose investigators are featured in the report.
