The article just pointed out one big example from a billionaire who is donating huge amounts of money to Romney as an investment in the returns he will receive should he win. I don't think the article said anything about only rich Republicans benefiting.

Mike


With all due respect Mike, articles like that are written so people can associate a theme. Take the key words out : Donates - Billionaire - Benefit - Romney (republican) - Special low tax rates.

Translation to the people who only read the surface of the article: "Rich republicans who donate to Romney will get special low tax breaks." This is what the average person reads. The Huffington Post knows this which is why they write it this way. You are the exception and are reading it for what it is.

My response was to point out that everyone will win and get the same breaks regardless of which side of the isle they are on.

I have been around marketing people to long. I know a advertisement when I see it.

HuffPo is as far to the left as fox is to the right. I try to use Google News for everything.

Citizens United needs to be overturned, unlimited funds via super pac's have to be stopped. Corporations are not people. But I don't think anyone is running on that as part of their platform.

I recall McCain and his "campaign finance reform" issue in the 2000 GOP primary. Back when I used to listen to Limbaugh as he equated McCain with all kind of liberal evil in favor of W. Bush. Then 9/11 happened and Limbaugh was making fun of McCain sitting there in the Senate as the media cameras panned around in the days after ,and saying no one cares now about campaign finance reform. Had stopped listening to Limbaugh; final straw for me was him mentioning he didn't see the pro-abortion message on someone's license plate until his chauffeur told him about it.

Almond Milk is great, stores in pantry for months at a time, is healthy, and you can buy in 8-packs at Costco.

Mike

Their Kirkland Vanilla Soy milk is good also. Also a good place to buy the only reasonably priced frozen blueberries I've found. Then, you have the makings of a good breakfast recipe:

- Kirkland Vanilla Soy milk
- Vanilla "Designer Whey" protein powder (no added sugar, artificial sweetener); good price at Puritan's Pride online
- frozen blueberries
- banana
- ice cubes

Blend

Google news seems to aggregate mostly left leaning sources. Especially when it comes to more conservative topics. I saw lots of stories with Huff Puff Post as the source.

I would expect this since Google is a primarily left leaning company.

Media was caught with a hot mic on coordinating questions at a Romney press conference. But I am sure there is no biased reporting going on......

Everything I have read about Belize seems to really favor expatriots.
