“Koch Brothers, Allies Pledge $100 Million At Private Meeting”
Nobody is surprised by this.
Spinster Aunt on Komen Khaos
“Listen everyone, Komen doesn’t prevent cancer, and Komen doesn’t pay for breast cancer treatment. It “raises awareness” through “early detection” and funds “research” focused on pharmaceutical cures for cancers that many of Komen’s corporate sponsors might likely have a hand in causing in the first place.”
Return your pink Kitchen-Aids! Un-dye the City Hall foundation! Rouge pink nipples until they are as red as the necks and political beliefs of Komen’s CEO Nancy Brinker, Karen Handel and Jane Abraham!
Oh, boy, have I missed Twisty.
Her conclusion is killer:
“Komen is the most visible brand in the whole cancer industrial complex. It disguises itself as some big altruistic community effort for women’s health, but it’s really just another conservative, honky organization with a misogynist political agenda. A marketing juggernaut instrumental in raking in piles of cash for and cleansing the tarnished images of its evil corporate sponsors, Komen has successfully brainwashed millions to believe that the “problem” of women’s health can be solved by licking yogurt lids.”
Senate Votes To Stop Congressional Insider Trading
New York Times:
“In an effort to regain public trust, the Senate voted Monday to take up a bill that would prohibit members of Congress from trading stocks and other securities on the basis of confidential information they receive as lawmakers. The vote was 93 to 2.
This was in Obama’s SOTU. Pretty quick turnaround.
Congress was pissedddd when Obama mentioned that. It was one of the few times he was actually booed.
