    What has Coke, Pepsi, Kraft, McDonalds, and the Gates’ Foundation hold in common. They have all dropped out of the right wing lobbying oranization, ALEC (American Legislative Enterprise Council), which lobbied for the NRA for Florida’s “stand your ground” law, plus has lobbied for the same law in scores of other states.

    There is a god. I always knew if enough attention was ever focused on ALEC it would destroy them. Score one for Occupy.

    ALEC has its claws into Christie in NJ, Walker in Wisconsin, Snyder in Michigan, the Ohio Governor, Florida. Everywhere there is GOP governor and enough of a majority in the state houses to push through their radical agenda.

    The latest on the list exposed is Bobbi Jindal in Louisiana

    Wait till the hammer drops in late August.

    These companies think they are playing nice in the sandbox with a 3% of their base. Trust me. Wait till August.

    You can't destroy ALEC. That's the fun of all of this. What is happening is we are flushing out all the radical left wing organizations who think they have a voice with the radicals in Obama's administration.

    You don't get it at all do you?:D

    Instead of posting on boards tonight and for the past weeks, I've been profiling members of Colour yes Brit spelling Color of Change.

    By all means, please keep putting yourselves out there.

    :D

    Of course, but isn't it nice to see this particular effort get exposed and see their attempts to salvage it crash and burn?
