Friday Fun: Writing Opportunity

The Campaign for Liberty seeks columnists and/or bloggers to write an op. ed. about Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, the 2010 landmark Supreme Court case. The Supremes, according to Wikipedia, "struck down a provision of the McCain–Feingold Act that prohibited all corporations, both for-profit and not-for-profit, and unions from broadcasting 'electioneering communications.' "

The Campaign for Liberty disagrees - strongly - with the Supreme Court's ruling and wants writers who will tackle the issue from a traditional conservative/populist angle - i.e., the Founders did not write about or advocate for protections and rights for corporations since that would set-up a competition with individuals who form the highest order within a Republican form of government.

More information about the ruling is here. Please contact me if you are interested.


Here's an excerpt from a Vermont publication about an anti-Citizens United Ruling rally that featured two well-known foodies: "Even ex-ice cream moguls Ben & Jerry showed up, putting a simple face (or two) on the issue and drawing a good laugh.

'We’re here as two real life examples of people,' said Ben Cohen, standing with Jerry Greenfield, his partner in progressive causes.

'I’m Ben, I’m a person,' he said.

'I’m Jerry, I’m a person,' chimed in Greenfield.

Then, said Cohen of his erstwhile ice cream company: 'Ben & Jerry’s: Not a person.' "


Speaking of bodacious Vermont, Whoopi Goldberg is selling her farmhouse (which is located near Brattleboro). Check out all the land that comes with it!

There is a large divide between populist anti-corporatism and elite moonbat anti-corporate posturing.

Here is a case in point. Ben and Jerry sold out (literally) to a mega-corporation and now can afford to posture ineffectually to their heart's content.

Point taken! And the moonbats should be called out on the hypocrisy.
