    The good news is that the NRA spends that much in about two weeks.

    Destroying the constitution, paying good money to do it, and inciting citizens to cough up the funding. She ought to be really proud of herself.

    And the Congress critters she's looking to buy off had better remember they've sworn blood oaths to the People, to protect and defend the Constitution, not to pee on its grave at the behest of extortionists.





    Keep in touch with your hirelings at the state and federal levels. Ensure the know their sworn oaths and what's required of them. Ensure they know that we're not happy with willful destruction of the Constitution or anyone daring to try it, that extorting crimes against the Constitution is not okay in a nation of free citizens.

    Marissa Mayer, CEO of Yahoo!, gave $250,000
    I sold that all of my YHOO stock a few weeks ago when Daniel Loeb and Third Point cashed in a majority of their shares. It almost makes me happy I sold, but man, considering the stock performance, she has done a great job. I want to like her......

    Marc Benioff, CEO of Salesforce.com, gave $500,000. CRM (Salesforce.com) is on my watch list. If I buy I'll just have to remember, "Do not let politics get in the way of making $$".

    I would be very interested to see what salary, benefits and expenses she and hubby are drawing from the group. I noticed that on their recent road trip they traveled by private jet.

    I guess as long as it isn't their guns that get controlled everything is fine.

    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    I'm tempted to send them a check for zero and 02/hundredth dollars, but I think the message would be lost upon them.

    Don't worry about it because they're both massive supporters of the second amendment and only want to enforce common sense measures to keep our children safe. They totally deserve to be using that money to travel the country in a private jet. It's for the children!

    How much of that want to buying ammo on their shooting range tour? How much went to hubby Marc buying guns, "to see how easy it was"?

    Kelly gets caught red handed buying an AR-15, one of those evil "assault weapons", and Giffords courted the pro gun people when she was in office. "Do as I say, not as I do" people, huh?

    I wonder to what degree the money in the gravy train has changed her "aim," versus the actual utility of disarming victims before they become victims. Hmmmm.
