 Freedom Of Speech: How Quaint
Pj 1k posts, incept 2009-12-07

I defend the right of SEIU, as well as GE, to develop and write postion papers all day long on ideas and problems that interest them.

I reject outright, the idea that any entity spend money to promote those ideas.

Pablo, what does GE or the SEIU do with these position papers? Do they put them in a desk drawer in the hopes that if it's a good idea it will somehow float out and gain traction?

I am honestly not trying to be sarcastic here. I just don't understand how any position can be introduced into the public discourse if no money is spent getting the position out there.

If Fox runs and discusses the issue, then that is corporate money floating the position. Ditto if CNN or 60 Minutes runs and discusses the SEIU or GE position.

I'm grabbing my popcorn for this because the opportunity for transparency on the influence of corporate to politics is going to be Huge, it's no longer under the table anymore! Also I believe that both left right and center are about to be blindsided by all the reprocutions of this due to monetary influence vs the moral standard. We are inching closer and closer to a true revolution and corporate warfare to the likes no one has ever seen before.

Agree Promomag!

Is that clean spot on your bumper where your Obamacare sticker used to be?
