List: Donations to Deficit 'Super Committee' members

Oh good! Shining light upon political intriguers is always worthwhile and eventually may serve to disinfect their contamination of democracy.

MapLight.org has published an updated list of donations to members of November's Deficit 'Super Committee' made up of 6 Republicans and 6 Democrats (aka, a 'Super Congress' formed in part to drive a spike into the heart of the US Constitution and to circumvent a traditional role of the US Congress.)

Four favorite sites covering progressive issues:

Move To Amend
Democracy Now!

And three quotes of note:

"That which is Below corresponds to that which is Above...and that which is Above corresponds to that which is Below--to accomplish the miracle of the One Thing."

-Hermes Trismegistus


"Astrology is a science in itself and contains an illuminating body of knowledge. It has taught me many things and I am greatly in debt to it."

-Albert Einstein


"Millionaires don't use astrology, billionaires do."

-J. P. Morgan, Sr, client/student of Astrology pioneer Evangeline Adams

Just reading the first list on Maplight, yup, all the regular pay-to-play players are there...big money, big pharma. big blah blah blah. BTW, if you go on Crooks and Liars, they have a piece on Russ Feingold's new organization calling on progressives to insist on three things or walk away. Too bad that if we walk away, that means that the automatic meat axe gets dragged out. But the piece is worth reading.

Funny that you should mention sites around the internet that address progressive issues. Amy today asks the "billion dollar question"-"who are the rebels?". I have been wanting to have somewhere to go with the same question that came to me when I was watching some tape of the celebrating "rebels". These men are so obviously NOT soldiers and there is absolutely an absence of the military discipline that is needed to keep chaos from totally overwhelming the situation. What is the story that is not being told? Who are the rebels indeed?!?!
