Republicans Determined NOT to Identify Their Secret Donors

You have to wonder what the Republicans are afraid of.  Who are these secret donors that the GOP doesn’t want you to know about?  Foreign governments?  Terrorist organizations?  Crime syndicates?

Two months ago the FCC created a website where some TV stations — only those stations that are affiliated with the four largest networks — would be required to disclose who paid for that station’s political ads and how much they paid.  It was a small first step for people who would like to follow the money and find out WHO has purchased our government for their own personal use.

And now the House Appropriations financial services subcommittee has killed that first step.  Along party lines, they voted to prohibit the FCC from implementing this new requirement for TV stations.  So much for those “public airwaves” we keep hearing about.

This FCC requirement was heavily opposed by the broadcast industry, since they’re expected to “earn” $3 billion this year from political ad revenue.  And needless to say, this requirement was desperately opposed by Republican prostitutes politicians and the secret “donors” who keep bribing them.

Reciting what his wealthy johns told him to say, Committee Chairman Hal Rogers (R—Hands Around His Ankles) said:  “Television station fiscal matters are private and should be kept private.”

That’s right!  You wanna know who’s purchasing the election right out from under you?  None of your damn business!

We have a secret vote.

Now we have secret donations to pay for ads for our vote.

Next, we will have secret candidates. Just vote. We will tell you who you voted for later...if ever.

Like getting the Supreme Court to give them unlimited Money isn't enough, if it's free speech we still have a right to know where it came from. It's the law in California.

It is well-known across our nation that George Soros funds everything the Democratic party does. ;-)

So why shouldn't we get to know who funds the Republicans?

I think Jerry is on the right track. If these corporations are people, then eventually we will be voting for corporations, not people.

Who would you rather see in the White House... Costco or WalMart?
How about General Motors versus Toyota of America? They're probably there already, pretty much.

Now now..... disclosure is only important if you happen to be a Democrat with your eye on an intern. If you're a Rushpubliscum.... well, IOKIYAR.

Republican donors aren't much of a secret. They just don't want to expose who's giving to who. Could get embarrassing.

Jerry: LOL, that'll be the next step.

Erik: I didn't know California had a law like that. Every state should.

Snave: Yes, we are both working for George Soros and we do and say everything he tells us. It's time for all of us to come clean and admit it :)

JR: That's right, I forgot the all-important IOKIYAR rule.

Mr. C: They deserve some embarrassment.

Thanks for not even trying this time. Your stupid might be infectious, considering how many of you empty-headed broads there are.

Now, did you get us that apple pie? We've been pretty patient with you, but I'll tell you-one wimmins is the same as any other wimmins. Either do your womanly duties or we'll find someone who can!

Ooooh, quelle surprise that the repugs want to hide stuff. It's been going on for forever with these groups. NOM has been back and forth to court to shield the donors because you know.. Jesus would weep if others managed to find out who donated to certain groups. So the moral is, don't make the baby Jeebus cry asking for transparency. the end.

Oooh and JR I don't know about this whole one wimmin is just like another. Do I get all the guys to myself if I volunteer for the doing of womanly duties. I think it's only fair that way. Hey, don't judge me, guys can have more than one woman why can't we wimminz??? ;)
