If I hadn't, I mighta missed Beyonce's invitation to join her and Jay at his club next week. If I give money to the Obama Campaign. And my name gets drawn.


:lol: :lol: :lol:

Sorry, B, but whatever night that is, I'm pretty sure it's the one I have "sort sock drawer" on my calendar. Priorities, you know. Maybe next time.

Love, T

Nothing says spread the wealth around like making sure only the richest folks can participate!

I think what Obama means by spread the wealth around and fair share, is that these ideas are for us, not him and his buddies.

Beyonce's right. She doesn't email me often.

You mean exactly like the high end fundraisers that all national politicians do? Obama certainly didn't come up with this nor is he the only one doing it, just for the record.

More evidence that we need publicly financed campaigns, repeal of the Citizen's United abomination and elimination of all corporate contributions. While I'm at it, I would also like to see any "religious" organization lose its tax-exempt status the second they spend one penny or utter one syllable about politics. For that matter, just eliminate that exemption all around.

I didn't start the thread as a shot at Obama individually. Romney's just as bad. Prolly worse, prolly.

I can't even afford to go to the not-so-high fundraisers that CP gets invited to for our local politicians. I've certainly never been to a $1,000/plate dinner for a presidential candidate, with or without Beyonce.
