He'll probably use that money to build a huge casino resort and employ thousands of hard-working, taxpaying people.

In Spain.

Seems like a pretty good ROI for a $100 million in pro-Romney efforts.

Yes, buying politicians is a good investment.

No, Adelson wants the Federal investigations into his illegal business deals to be stopped. Which is the sole reason he is dumping money into the campaign.
 
2012-09-11 12:45:26 PM
Clearly, his current tax bill makes him a Better American than you lazy good-for-nothings. Why shouldn't he be rewarded?

Yes, but at this point, when Obama does win, and the Justice Department continues it's investigation, he can whine that Obama's jackbooted thugs are harassing a poor little small businessman for supporting the opposition.

A Mormon running for President is bankrolled by a Jew who got his billions from Asian gamblers.

GOP sugar daddy Sheldon Adelson could get a $2 billion tax cut not arrested if Romney is elected

AND a war with Iran AND leniency with Federal investigation(s) into his business dealings, current and future. He bought the Mitt Romney Bundle Plan with his millions.
 
2012-09-11 02:20:31 PM
Not to count my chickens yada yada yada, after the election, I want to crowdfund a billboard in Las Vegas that says "Sheldon Adelson spent millions to defeat Barack Obama and all he got was this stupid billboard." Does anyone know how to get this together?
 
2012-09-11 02:23:57 PM
Holy sh*t dude you're like one of the top 10 richest people in the country and you're old as sh*t, how much do you need to f*ck up everyone else's lives in order to add $2 billion to your already massive stockpile of money?

Sheldon Adelson would get more money in a day just from the tax cut than you will make in your entire life.

This is what you're voting for, Jim-Bob's of the world.

Are you telling me that Adelson isn't some altruistic patriot doing what he does, not just for the betterment of the country and for all the citizens of it, but for his own personal gain? I find that hard to believe!

/doesn't find it hard to believe

Mostly, the idea that blah children getting free meals at school really grinds his gears. How is he supposed to enjoy his lunch KNOWING that there aren't starving blah children? Did anyone stop to think of beta_plus's lunch? Did you?

WTF Indeed: No, Adelson wants the Federal investigations into his illegal business deals to be stopped. Which is the sole reason he is dumping money into the campaign.


So, the $1,900,000,000 is icing on the cake. When you add in a candidate that will let Israel dictate policy (another of Adelson's favorite causes), and that $100 million just keeps on giving.
 
2012-09-11 04:46:47 PM
But Romney says once he unveils his plans to eliminate tax loopholes, people like Adelson will end up paying more.

The October surprise.
 
2012-09-11 04:47:14 PM
When Obama wins, he should thank @ssholes like Adelson and the Koch Bros for pumping so much money into the Obama Economic Recovery.

Also, gambling is against Rmoney's religion, but he'll take millions made from casinos? Awesome ethics, dude.

The churches used to, but with that Prosperity Gospel getting preached in so many places even more of the poor are just shiat-out-of-luck.

Bonus: Romney's gonna lose the Jewish vote. And probably the Asian vote. And I daresay he's not gonna win the gamblers' vote, either (if they even track that sort of thing).

The Mormon vote is looking like it's going to flip in 2016. Looks like miscegenation really wasn't approved by Kolob.

When he heard that a Jewish mayor was elected in Dublin, Ireland, Yogi commented, "Yeah, only in America can a thing like this happen."

Remember kids being part of the God fearing, America loving, commie hatin Republican party means never having to help those in need but instead you should best help those who have the power to help themselves because if one thing says American it "Fark you, I got mine".

2012-09-11 04:58:37 PM
Listen, Adelson is a jerk, but that headline seems to be misleading. It sounds like a good chunk of that $2 billion -- $1.2 billion according to the article -- would be his company's untaxed profits and not cash actually going into his pockets. Am I missing something?

Still doesn't change the fact that it makes me sick to know people like can buy an election. These Super PACs are getting ridiculous.
