Me: "I have a job and five credit cards and am looking into signing a two year lease.  THAT MAKES ME OLD."
Josh: "I don't have a job, I have ONE credit card, I'm stuck in a lease and I'm 28! My mom's basement IS ONE BAD DECISION AWAY!"
~~ Josh, winning the argument.

Javert,

CNN has links to total lifetime contributors as well - it's interesting reading that the person who has given George Bush over 600,000 lifetime dollars is the same guy who ran ENRON into the ground and then strangely avoided prosecution for it - Ken Lay :sarcasm:

The list makes very interesting reading, here's the link:

http://edition.cnn.c...index.bush.html

But these pages will show everyones contributors not just Bush's :dontgetit:

Interesting to see that most of Bush's TOP contributors are companies that have made out like Bandits - shipped jobs overseas and generally gotten wealthier while the rest of us suffered.

Kerry, on the other hand, seems to be supported by very powerful Law Firms (shudder :crazy: ).

Well, at least you can indict lawyers, Corporations seem to be untouchable in this administration...

Oh, AND, hopefully they will put a "Foot-in-mouth" counter - so we can keep track of all their stupidity and public flubs - Dubya "No WMD's Here" tastelessness will no doubt feature heavily.
