2014 will be the most expensive midterm election ever

2014 will be the most expensive midterm election ever | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
The biggest growth area? Outside group spending.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Both sides are spending big....But who is investing and what are they expecting? How much did you invest and what do you think you will get for your investment? Nothing for nothing? Please Vote! Voting is a wise investment and can take on the biggest spenders without spending a dime. Just look past the big money ads and do your own homework. These big spenders aren't paying to have these people work for you and most of the biggest money is coming from a small group of very extremely wealthy individuals that intend to continue to redistribute everyone's resources and wealth into their pockets and control.


Excerpt:

That spending, as they note, does not include nonprofit 501(c)(4) groups like the Koch brothers-aligned Americans for Prosperity, which have spent heavily on the election. "Overall, it’s likely that at least $100 million in spending is not being counted, and that money leans distinctly to the right, records filed with the Federal Communications Commission indicate. If that’s an accurate estimate, any advantage the liberal outside spending groups have over conservative ones will be washed away by Election Day," reads the memo.

Is this a step in the total wrong direction? Anyone that has ever been caught in the borrower trap knows how hard it is to ever break that cycle. This will make it even worse to pull out of a debt. These companies have already been operating like bandits and vampires or mafia Godfathers.

Pressure on Obama to Quickly Resolve Centuries-Old Sunni-Shiite Conflict - The New Yorker

Pressure on Obama to Quickly Resolve Centuries-Old Sunni-Shiite Conflict - The New Yorker | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Congressional leaders left the White House on Wednesday “deeply frustrated” that President Obama had not found a swift resolution to the conflict between Sunnis and Shiites that began in the seventh century A.D. After meeting for more than an hour with the President in the Oval Office, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell expressed disappointment that Mr. Obama “came up empty” when asked for a plan to heal the rift between the two religious groups, which began in the year 632.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Speaking of people that seem to think Obama is a Savior .....it doesn't get better than this.....

Excerpt:After meeting for more than an hour with the President in the Oval Office, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell expressed disappointment that Mr. Obama “came up empty” when asked for a plan to heal the rift between the two religious groups, which began in the year 632.

“All we ask of this President is that he do one thing: settle a religious conflict that has been going on for a millennium and a half,” McConnell said. “What did he offer today? Nothing.”
