70. Morning Marketeers....
:donut: and lurkers. I was listening to the Young Turks and the reading about the secret loans that the Feds gave banks that made TARP look like bread crumbs at a picnic. As I was driving in to work listening to our Christmas music radio station COMA 99.1, my mind started mulling over the situation. The SCOTUS has ruled that corporate money=free speech. Since I have known few young creatures that have willingly gotten off the teat, I don't look for Congress to be getting off it any time soon.

And then I thought, what is so wrong with corporate sponsorship. I mean companies brag about their sponsorship of public radio, television, the arts, and humanitarian efforts. Are they ashamed to sponsor our government? So why not have transparency in our government. we are all grownups here, let us chose brand loyalty or generic if we prefer. I think that is part of the reason for this OWS. If our money is being used to fund things, lets be honest with where is goes.

So in order to assist with this transparency, I am recommending a NASCAR style jacket for members of Congress, the executive branch and yes, even the Supremes (just patches on their robes, we must maintain decorum here). And while we are at it, how about those captains of industry on WS. I know the Banksters would be sporting big old FED patches or maybe it should be a US Taxpayers patch (you know the universal symbol of the guy bending over and a screw behind him).

But the real payoff will come when candidates running for office sport their togs. At last, now more confusion, guessing, or disappointment with those we elect. All the information is right up front.

Anne D proudly sponsored by our city's education system and the taxpayers of the state of Texas with additional contributions from the taxpayers of the US. Thank you.

:sarcasm: (for the sarcastically impaired)

Happy hunting and watch out for the bears.
