With the usual note that the source is not reliable, the Washington Post reports big money Democratic donors such as Buzzfeed’s Kenneth Lerer have given the Democrats an ultimatum. Pass gun controls or you get no more money from us.
On the other hand, if the Dimmos do pass gun control they will almost certainly suffer the consequences in both Congress and at the State level. Which puts Andy Jackson’s Jackass Partei on the horns of the dilemma. Briefly quoting the item linked above:
Lerer also said he would be intensifying his contributions to Democratic Senate candidates in the next few years — excluding any that don’t take a strong position on gun control. “We intend to get very active in Senatorial campaigns during the next cycle and the one after,” he said. Red state Dems up for reelection in 2014 include Mary Landrieu, Kay Hagan, Mark Begich, Mark Pryor, and Max Baucus.
All of which merely confirms what observers have known since at least 1982. The Democratic Partei belongs to the big donors, lock, stock, and barrel. And the poor? Well, I see the Democrats have stopped paying for diagnostic tests for Medicare recipients. I also see that the going rate of return for “donations” to the Obama campaign are running around fifty million in taxpayers money for a five hundred thousand donation. Which makes donating to Dimmos the soundest investment around.
And all of this means we must emulate the old time loggers. Spit on our hands and start chopping. Chopping down Democrats. Because the United States is not that far behind Mexico when it comes to corruption.
