I Am Finally Rich

 Doing the Bopp:    Things have just gotten so much bette.

Washington State's campaign finance laws are about to be changed by court fiat. The force behind this, James Bopp Jr., was a mover in getting corporations defined as citizens under the "Citizens United" U.S. Supreme Court ruling. According to him there is no problem. The rich always have an advantage, but the solution is simply for everyone to become rich. Once that happens we will have a level playing field. Considering that Exxon Mobil reported the largest annual profit in US history in 2009 ($45.22 billion), most of us have a way to go. But it's actually much better than that. We are already rich. One third of humanity lives on $2 a day or less, and th e next third isn't much better off, so all Americans, even those living in cardboard boxes and cadging quarters on the sidewalk are actually rich by world standards. Then rejoice, my fellow Americans. Now you can put your pocket change directly up against Rupert Murdoch's $100 million gift to the Republican Governors Conference without shame or fear. You obviously will prevail since you are now also rich. WA story
