TAKE DOWN THE SHADOW CAMPAIGN: I just sent the following email to five progressives in the mainstream media: Rachel Maddow, Keith Olberman, Dylan Ratigan, Larry O'Donnel and Ed Schultz.

Here is what I asked of them:

As you probably know so well if you looked at Huffington Post today there is a big headline on the "Shadow Campaign."

The floodgates have been opened wide. Millions upon millions and perhaps even over a billion bucks will be placed in GOP coffers in the race for the presidency and a Congressional takeover because of the poisonous rancid SCOTUS decision of Citizens United. I am physically incapable of beginning a movement but I believe any one of you with high profiles could do it. Call it: TAKE DOWN THE SHADOW CAMPAIGN of obscene amounts of corporate cash paid into Pacs MOST of them Republican forcing the people to go up against a Goliath.

I want you to be the Davids and through your efforts expose these utter swine for what they are -- blood sucking buyers of government the rest of us cannot afford and ruining our country in the process. You have the agility, the stamina and the money to begin this campaign. Like John Stewart organized thousands of those in the middle who hated dysfunctional government and loathe a Congressional infighting beholden to
MASSIVE money I want YOU to begin a HUGE movement as well.

We all know that Barack Obama MUST retain the presidency. He has done much good with so much opposition trying to take him down while being handed a plate of scorpions from his White House predecessor. Now if elected to a second term Barack Obama can and, I believe will, do even better IF he gets a Congress who is not so murderous to his presidency. We must do this if for no other reason than to fill possibly THREE Supreme Court seats. Filling even TWO seats would be a defeat for these unscrupulous usurpers of unlimited money soaked power which the majority of we the people cannot hope to fight to OVERTURN the malevolent Citizen's United decision.

Please help TAKE DOWN THE SHADOW CAMPAIGN by exposing its underbelly to the light. It is through light-giving transparency that only the media can bestow can we HOPE to return our country to those who would REALLY fix it and not simply gather buckets of cash for their own Republican campaign coffers and subvert the electoral process as well.

I am looking to you to do what I cannot. I watch all of you every night of my life. You have become my ONLY hope! TAKE DOWN THE SHADOW CAMPAIGN. If you have not read the post on Huffington about it, I attach it below.
Bing or Bling: You can read the link below about the "Goggle-Microsoft antitrust war for the web" and decide for yourself. The name of the game is power ball in Washington when Citizens United was the abominable pro corporate decision de jour handed down by the illustrious right wingnut political SCOTUS jurists Scalia, Thomas, Kennedy, Alito, and Roberts. It extended big time the stranglehold corporate America already has on ALL of our lives. They do so now EVEN more by Google buying, through massive contributions, into the Republican wingnut camp. Now these corporate swine are extending their poison to what you read on the web. The RepubilcRAT extremist party has managed to get even formerly progressive Google into their rightwing extremist boat.

It might seem that this does not mean much as the moneyball game, we know, is played out ALL OVER Washington by both parties. It nonetheless is important, I believe, VERY important. I am switching my search engine to Bing. Bing is very good and until I read otherwise I humbly suggest you do the same if you truly do want fairly distributed information available to all on the web. If there is, I admit, a progressive slant to a company I will use that company. I suggest you do the same unless you want to be bought by entities that do NOT -- DO NOT -- have most of your interests at heart unless you have a membership in the top 2% which holds 98% of the wealth strata. I suspect most of you do not.

If you are concerned that the information you receive from the HUGELY influential Internet will be unfairly tainted by right wing extremist conservative sites because Google will give them positional preference or even omit progressive ones than switch to Bing. How could it hurt? Every little bit the little guy can do to help erase BIG MONEY'S rancid influence on all of our lives is a good thing. At least one must try!
