"A vote for Romney is a vote for bribery and organized crime."

What a fantastic endorsement.

/I hope Romney appreciates the money

Does the phrase "throwing good money after bad" mean anything to you?

That would make an awesome superPAC ad.

So, anyone paying attention knew this . . . but for him to publicly admit it? It's a bit shocking.

Good Jorb, Sheldon. Now even if Romney wins, the DoJ won't have a choice not to investigate, lest they openly appear to be bought and paid for.
 
2012-09-26 08:45:14 PM  
Well it had to be something. Romney's already in Israel's pocket on the foreign policy tip with or without Sheldon's money.

I was going to mention that. Why don't these guys with a shiatton of money and one foot in the grave just retire to their underwater/volcano/lunar lair in peace? Why do they just keep having to be evil when they're so near the end?

It's not about the money, it's about the game. It's the only thing keeping them alive.

It's because the majority of the people don't care;

Most people are uninformed and won't ever hear about this.

Those supporting Romney will still support him for their reasons, Hell, some will even chime in and love this Adelson guy for what he's doing.

Wasn't Newt his original whipping boy?

It's absolutely stunning where the GOP is right now.

In other words, Adelson is spending millions of dollars to curry political favor in the United States, hoping to fend off charges that he spent millions of dollars to curry political favor in Asia.

But here it's not bribery, it's speech!

He owns corporations [sweatshops] in China.
He says we need to get tough with China.
He wants to be elected so he can get tougher with his sweatshop employees in China.

BitwiseShift: Sheldon's also trying to outFox Out Murdoch Israel, too.


FTFA:

Critics also charge the government of making political appointments to Israel's public broadcasting system, sidelining prominent critics on state radio and passing anti-libel legislation meant to stifle investigative reporters.

Comments by Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz, a Netanyahu confidant from his hawkish Likud Party, captured on tape at a recent party function highlight the animosity.

"We are dealing here ... with a media that is not only against the Likud - it is true, it mostly prefers the left and is not entirely objective - but beyond that it is a media that has lost respect for one small, simple word - the truth," he told a group of Likud activists.


The Likud remind me of the GOP more and more each day. And remind me why I think they're a bunch of neocon assholes.

/waits for people to call me anti-Semitic after making that comment

Sheldon's just hoping to stay in China. If Obama gets re-elected, don't be surprised if Chinese seize all of his assets over there as part of a criminal enterprise. Why buy the milk when you can get the cow for free, right?

Just die you archaic douchebag. Your DoJ issues of your own doing are not a reason for you to fark over everyone else just so you don't get farked. He should get the Roman style stripping of citizenship and banned from fire or comfort within 500 miles of the Capitol.

It's a bucket list thing. You're nobody until you've bought a US President. All of his rich friends have one, and here is without one, so why not take a shot?

When did Obama say that?

That, and it's important to remember that the more the wealth is completely centered at the top, the more glorious the golden shower of trickle down economics will be in some distant Utopia heralded by unicorns, rainbows and 3-titted women who don't mind if you're in 4 fantasy football leagues.

Adelson is rich. Scientology rich. When you're that rich, you don't worry about whether the laws are your favor, you go to certain people in Washington and have them write laws in your favor.

Plenty of legislators with price tags on em. Occasionally one gets thrown in prison as a sop to the people who believe the system works (Duke Cunningham, e.g.) but that's just window dressing.

Fluorescent Testicle: So, a question for the Fark Law Talkin' Guys: Can Adelson and/or Romney be charged for this? It doesn't sound legal to me.


No.

He phrased it carefully, he went out of his way to claim Obama is an evil bigot-monster against poor casino-owners and sin-profiteers like him (as opposed to the moralistic Romney) and that the DOJ is unfairly targeting him and Romney would simply return things to "fair and balanced" and leave him alone.

Adelson can still go to jail for what he's being investigated for (bribery in China) but the only evidence we have for that is essentially from a whistleblower who sold him out because said whistleblower was fired.

Romney can't be busted unless you have particularly damning evidence, like a taped conversation where Romney pretty explicitly agrees to a kickback arrangement or a well-documented pattern of taking "gifts" and delivering political favors.

But in the court of public opinion we can hammer Adelson and Romney for collusion and bribery and organized crime. Anyone who works for the DoJ has just been insulted and has a more personal interest in taking the corrupt mofo down. The only bad news from this is the hail mary Adelson is gambling on, that Obama will be forced to pull the DoJ back as Adelson spends millions more attacking Obama and democrats as, "going after their political enemies." And make no mistake, Sheldon will make those attacks if Obama wins.
