    Mr. Adelson — who has already donated more than $30 million this year to “super PACs” backing Newt Gingrich, who dropped out of the presidential race last month, and Mitt Romney, who is now the Republicans’ likely nominee — is quickly expanding his giving to a variety of Republican-leaning organizations, including tax-exempt issue advocacy groups that are expected to spend most of the outside money in this year’s campaigns.

    He has committed at least $10 million to the Crossroads Grassroots Policy Strategies, founded by Karl Rove, according to people with knowledge of his donations. He has discussed contributing another $10 million to groups aligned with Charles and David Koch, the billionaire oil and chemical executives who founded Americans for Prosperity, another issue group.

    Gentlemen if you think this is all about the GOP, or all about the Democrats, you are mistaken. The radical rich have purchased the country — all three branches of government, and both political parties. It’s time to do something before the middle class loses any voice in our government.

    So, after giving all that money and getting nowhere for his effort, I guess you disproved your own theory, eh? Or Soros is much better at it since he did get Obama elected.

    The makeup of the Supreme Court is one of the reasons I would never vote for a Republican for president. Some of the decisions they have made are simply unbelievable to me. What we call a democracy is now a plutocracy.

    I would have to concur with ninety_nine_percent, Russell and chayasnana. We all agree upon not having large sums of money involved in politics especially US political elections. Bickering about the details at this point is pointless until we have real campaign fiance reforms being discussed.

    Ah yes, the old Seuss-Goldburg ploy. It ranks with the Hugh Hefner, Woody Allen ploy, which caused bedroom eyes and diploplia! Confusion from using the,ah,.." little brain" leading to massive world hunger, and too many Republicans. Hence the term “woody” used to describe their cerebral cortex, and their means of subduing the populace, …getting totally scr##wed by big corporate politicians maneuvers.

    Just because Krugman’s been right about nearly everything – then of course he can’t be acceptable to conservatives and their make-believe world.

    No the Supreme Court would rather that they just be allowed to choose the next Prez — like in 2000. Why even bother letting the riff-raff think their vote counts.

    The posting to which you referred has been deleted for reasons of Temporal Security (Temporal Authority Act of SVG300/ 6789-j/ 37-58). Please dis-remember it and carry on your present-day life in 2012 as usual. Violations will be dealt with harshly. (We know where your grandfather lived as a child.)

    And it’s Seuss-GoldbErg Variations!

    You still qualify as a troll if you know so little about him that you cannot spell his name correctly.

    One last thing:

    It turns out that Donald Trump IS a rogue time traveler, after all I was deceived by his bizarre hair disguise (so lame) and from the, um …intellectual damage he apparently suffered in temporal transport. Most time travelers are much smarter./

    What put me on to it was the George Will incident. In checking service records, I see that George is a temporal scholar (it’s obvious in his obsession with archaic past events). As a purist, he resented Trump’s blatant interference in the time stream and let slip his actual future name, “Bloviating Ignoramus.” /

    Those names sound cool in the future (Bloviating is a trendy first-name for men, and Ignoramus is as common as “Smith.”), but not so much in your era. /

    Also, George took on a Republican persona, and Republicans were badly discredited when global warming killed all earth vegetation but poison ivy and kudzu.

    This comment, too, will soon disappear from your memory …
