investigate the matter. White House senior adviser David Axelrod demanded that the Chamber open its books and prove it isn’t using foreign money to fund its campaigns. President Obama has ramped up the criticism of this threat to our democracy following up on his blunt warning in last year's State of the Union address, in which right wing Supreme Court Justice Sam Alito was seen shaking his head and mouthing the words, “not true.” What about now, Joe Wilson ... er, Sam? Traitorous bastards. Working class hero, Ed Schultz, tells it like it is:
rubbish, as the Oxford English Dictionary defines it:
(British English, informal) (also used as an adjective) something that you think is of poor qualityBefore joining the Chamber, Collamore was a Republican operative, serving as CEO of the Friends for Fred Thompson Committee. Before that, he spent 14 years with international tobacco giant Altria Group, Inc., as vice president of Corporate Public Affairs. He served George H.W. Bush during the Reagan and Bush administrations, and continues to serve the Republican Party, a wholly-owned subsidiary of corporate America and its funding arm, the Chamber of Commerce. Collamore belongs to the permanent shadow corporate government that includes among its virtual board of directors, the Bush family as well as the funding nations.
I thought the play was rubbish!
Do we have to listen to this rubbish music?
They said I was a rubbish boss.
They pay to play in U.S. elections to subvert our democracy.
The Democratic Party is fighting back with this ad. As Big Ed said, this is not a Democratic or Republican issue; this is about our freedom and democracy. If we don't stop this now, we'll be fighting a rearguard acrtion on our own shores to prevent foreign multinationals from turning our democracy into a globalized fascist state, a third world oligarchy for our billionaire rulers to dump their cheap products, an unregulated marketplace playground, as they hoard their money in overseas tax havens and invest it in more overseas jobs or Chinese speed rail and planet-chocking coal burning plants.
This is our future — the end of history — if we don't take a stand and stop it.
