Or how to use "non-profits", to destroy America one State at a time.

In recent years, the foundation has also funded TV ads targeting Democrats during the 2011 Wisconsin showdown over collective bargaining rights; attacking President Obama in Virginia over his energy policy; and accusing teachers unions of “destroying our children’s future.”

The foundation also gave $1.25 million in 2011 to the Indiana Opportunity Fund, a state-level nonprofit that ran anti-union ads featuring Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels. (That group was founded by attorney Jim Bopp, who has long fought against campaign finance regulation.)

Please note the part where they refuse to admit they have anything to do with (R)epelican'ts.

Sounds like neolibe(R)tarians all they way.

My momma always told me - look at actions - don't take words as an indicator.

And in so doing - you can SEE the individuals in government ( state and federal ) that are not supporting the people of this country.

You know darn well, somewhere down the line are the tie in's to ALEC and the Koch's.

Citizens United is making it harder and harder to trace such things though.

OK, sure Glenn.

You should have accepted Vince's offer from the WWE, it's more real than what you say.
