(Forbes)   Billionaire Sheldon Adelson says he might give $100M to Newt Gingrich or other Republican candidate, depending on which one grovels best. Go ahead, just put that right out there in the open like that, a test to see if anybody even cares   (forbes.com) divider line 64

Am I the only person creeped way the hell out by Adelson? It's like taking money from Satan.

Cheron:
Elections are turning into proxy wars for billionaires. Those of us who can't right a fat six figure check are no longer important to the process.


Turning into? Elections have been proxy wars between the rich and powerful for more than a century. Back in the early 1900's everyone in high government positions was either a Mellon man or a Rockefeller man.

And it's gonna stay that way. Keeping or reversing Citizens's United doesn't matter. The rich have money and they want access to government power. They will find a way to get it. They are more creative and more motivated to find new ways of corrupting than anyone else who wants to stop them.

At least in the past, the regular man could get a nice meal, bottle of liquor, or wad of cash in exchange for his vote. Now we get squat.

He is what you call a single issue voter.

Coelacanth: used to work for Sheldon at one of his Strip Properties. It was THE worst casino job I ever had. I miss the money, but after I was fired for telling a manager to start acting like a manager, I swear I skipped out of there like a little girl who was told that she was getting a pony for her birthday.

Thanks, Supreme Court!


Seriously, if it wasn't for the Supreme Court, we wouldn't have the rich-guy circus that is currently the 2012 elections - before the Citizens United decision, they used to have to move in the shadows, surreptitiously manipulating elections. Now, they can just come right out and buy their politicians off the rack, without shame.

It's nice to know that a majority of justices on the highest bench in the land can be so friggin' stupid, all at the same friggin' time, because of politics.

Democrat? Republican?

Farmers like Sheldon irrigate which ever crop will best serve their goals.

Meh. Water the beans today, the corn tomorrow.

Slives: Good god, another $100 million? Where does all that money go to?


Might be better to ask where it's all coming from.

As an european I should say HA-HA!
But somehow I can't.
Not only because US politics affects the whole world.
But also because, as a Human beeing, and despite the fact I'm not responsible for this, I stil feel dirty and miserable.
