$51 for 51 Senate Seats
— CAC

Challenging all morons to kick in $51 dollars for 51 seats today.
Donate $5 to each candidate below, and a buck to whomever you like in the Wisconsin or Missouri races. If there is any possible chance of undoing ObamaTax, you need more than just President Romney. You need a Republican Senate (and with seats to spare, IYKWIM,VCD).

MA-SENATE (Current hold, leans R, most vulnerable seat for us) DONATE
NV-SENATE (Current hold, leans R, 2nd most vulnerable)DONATE
VA-SENATE DONATE
OH-SENATE DONATE
FL-SENATE DONATE
ND-SENATE DONATE
MT-SENATE DONATE
NM-SENATE DONATE
MI-SENATE DONATE
PA-SENATE DONATE

MO, WI go to whomever you wish. Kick your $1 to 'em.
Holding the first two and flipping 4 of the next ten gets us 51 (Nebraska is ours), anything more is gravy.

Part of me wishes that I was still in PA just so I could see Casey go.  Then the rest of me thinks what it would be like living through the last two years working for the liberal idiots who used to be my bosses and I'm desperately glad to be gone.

CAC, has there been any (semi) legitimate flash polls on the decision from yesterday?

I'm thinking that Zerocare caused the 2010 wave and this will cause another one.

But then again, logic has gone down the toilet lately.

In 2008 there was something called Rightroots PAC, which allowed you to donate online, and designate which candidates the money went to, without getting on all of their effing mailing lists (and therefore wasting half the money you gave by sending you mail for the rest of your life).

Does anyone know of any such vehicle this time around?

13....I'm with Drew from yesterday. This is it. We have one chance to erase this law and try to set things right. We will have to do the heavy lifting, as usual, and we will have to scream louder than the leftards. If Romney and the rest of 'em backstab us after all of the promises, blood, sweat and tears, well, the country is over anyway. At least we tried.

 

15...Yes on Casey Sr. They banned him from speaking at the DNC n 1988 because he was pro-life. An early example to me of liberal tolerance.

I'm guessing that there was polling done out in the streets following the decision. And I'm sure that if the numbers favored the decision, the MSM would be trumpeting them. As it is, the polls on sites such as Yahoo and Bing have been 60-30 against. And wyes, I realize what those polls are worth

 

I'm only asking because there was a comment on an earlier thread bemoaning the fact that Zero picked up six points last week in the Rasmussen daily tracking poll. I'm interested to see how the numbers go after yesterday.

38 So, the DOJ won't prosecute Holder. He's literally laughing at the GOP. And, there's this from the washington times: Republicans say it’s not even under consideration, with House Speaker John A. Boehner’s spokesman flatly ruling it out. But the process, known as inherent contempt, is well-established by precedent, has been confirmed by multiple Supreme Court rulings, and is available to any Congress willing to force such a confrontation. “The House is scared to death to use the inherent contempt power,” said Mort Rosenberg, a fellow at the Constitution Project and author of “When Congress Comes Calling.” “They’re scared to death because the courts have said … the way the contempt power is used is unseemly. It’s not that it’s unconstitutional, because it’s been upheld by four Supreme Court decisions, but unseemly to have somebody go arrest the attorney general.” That’s why it’s been more than 75 years since either chamber has used the option though it used to be somewhat common. I have no words left.

49 "30 I love my home state of PA but it is a constant source of embarrassment." Ditto, but at least a shift is starting with Toomey and Corbett. If Romney pulls off PA in November, I can finally be proud of this state. We just need to keep the frauds inside Philly from stuffing the ballots (the recent ID law went into effect before the primary, so if the poll watchers do their job and keep focused on the corrupt districts, we might actually win this place).

It is a lot of lawyer mumbo jumbo paperwork and IRS regulation hoop jumping......plus there is probably some start up money (for filings, etc.) you would need.

 

In 2010 Ace, CAC and a few tried the "Be The Wave" thing which worked out about so-so.  They would put post up about certain candidate events and try to get Morons/Moronettes to show up, volunteer, etc. Now that might be worth trying again.......except that whenever someone would put up a post about "candidate x's rally at 2" some clown would inevitably post "why show up, he/she will just screw us over again and suck liberal dick".......or something along that line.

Would be best if one of the legal beagles here would handle the paperwork. I can fill it out, generate the by laws, etc -- but the filing is best done by a lawyer. Treasurer is also a critical job, kinda hard to do that one anonymously. Website, etc come later - but there a canned ones you can use.

We've discussed it before, but the people with the appropriate motivation didn't have the know-how.

Ah.  Oh well.  I suppose I'll go ahead and donate and provide the personal info to Mitt.  I can always throw away the snail mail asking for donations from others that get my name.  Fuck, I hate giving out personal info.  Fuck, Fuck, Fuck.

93  if you live in a hopeless blue state or over-the-top red state (looking at you Oklahoma), then find a relative, friend or your worst enemy in a swing state camp out during the election.

this is what the Dems do. of course, they pay union people the unemployed to do it.

but seriously, think of taking some time going somewhere to help.

unfortunately, Virginia is now a battleground so I will be staying here.

"I wonder how hard it would be to create our own AOSHQ PAC. We could then donate anonymously. Right?"

 

There are 2 other problems with an AOSHQ Pac.  One, lets be honest, our pool of potential donors here is rather limited.   Which means you then have to engage in fundraising and, well, lets be candid, some potential donors may log onto the ol' blog and find our liberal use of certain words a bit.......eh, what is the word I am looking for, yea, off-putting.  Second, while we the donors would remain annoymous other persons (treasurer, etc.) would not.  The nice thing about the blog world is you can be relatively unknown and still participate. 

 

However, I still think a more refined "Be the Wave" project getting volunteers to certain campaings would be beneficial.

I understand the drawbacks, but I would be willing to contribute hard cash to get a PAC set up and working.  It would be very, very nice to be able to donate anonymously to deserving candidates. 


As for donating time, unfortunately time is one thing I don't have - work 60 to 70 hours per week.  But, I do have some cash.  There might be more cash potential from commentators and readers on this site than is initially thought.  I rarely comment but I read the blog every day.  A PAC might be worth pursuing.

100 Don't sweat the Nevada race too much, despite what you might be hearing/seeing from polls. Dean Heller is a good guy with a good reputation and was the right person to replace John Ensign. He's well-liked by both sides in this state...even with his conservative credentials. The Left is running a sitting congresswoman who is unknown outside her Vegas district. Heller will hold the seat.

Gave $10 a Senator.   Cassius and Brutus will no doubt represent us well. 

 

At 2:30 CDT today,  I sold off all of my stock holdings.  I've been investing since 1997, having some good days and some bad days.  I've enjoyed investing, researching, and talking stocks, crushing the weak and following the strong.  I maintained about a third of my wealth in stocks (against the advise of Monty, et al) through the toughest times, including the financial meltdown and the really dark days of the Immaculation (which was a great time to buy by the way), but after the events of yesterday, I no longer consider myself vested in the future.  I'm in cash now and will be for the foreseeable future.

108 not to be a downer, but this is dumb. i don't even think you are able to donate just one dollar to a campaign. how about 51 dollars to one of these races, our choice? that makes more sense. the cost for a campaign to process a five dollar donation is almost as much as the donation is worth. then the donor gets on a mailing list for the campaign and the campaign will send out snail mail every other week begging for more money. so it may be a net loss for the campaign (cost of mailing all those letters to someone who may not donate again). again, the smarter choice is to donate 51 bucks to a single campaign.

113 I donated as requested. Except for NV, link comes back here. I looked for Dean Heller's donation page. Nothing on his website and googling it takes one to a suspicious looking page so didn't give there. Scott Brown's donation page is busy. W/Try again later.

118 Former left-leaning independent Governor King is running for the Maine senate seat and is likely to win. If we keep Mass. and Nevada, then we will need a net of 5 seats to get to 51, and 4 to get to 50 (+ GOP Veep tiebreaker).

Heck defeated because they are "impure." On the other side, Heller, Heck, and Romney have started up "Team Nevada" to act as a shadow party.

120 After trolling around the Web in the middle of the night looking for commentary from people as annoyed as I am, I decided instead to donate to the campaigns of every Tea Party-loving candidate I could find.  And even Scott Brown, though he seems destined to be the replacement for Olympia Snowe.  I felt much better afterwards.

122 to clarify, when betting on even odds you win however much you wager.but, know that when you are betting "even" odds that the odds are not actually even... just the payouts. when a handicapped line is at even, that means the sportsbook is getting more action to one side than the other. normally.
