Billionaire Adelson supports Romney, PACs

LAS VEGAS (UPI) -- Nevada casino mogul and Republican Party donor Sheldon Adelson could donate $100 million this campaign cycle, a person knowledgeable about the situation said.

The person said Adelson, not wanting to be limited to just one candidate or cause, could contribute to conservative advocacy group Crossroads GPS and an organization aligned with billionaires brothers Charles and David Koch, CNN reported Tuesday.

"The requests are coming fast and furious," the person said.

Adelson and his wife, Miriam, donated $10 million to Restore Our Future, the super PAC supporting presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney. The Adelsons also contributed about $20 million to keep one-time GOP hopeful Newt Gingrich's campaign bid alive for awhile.

Adelson, whom Forbes magazine estimates to be worth nearly $25 billion, is ranked as the seventh richest man in America.

Close friends to Adelson said he vowed to support whoever emerged as the GOP nominee because his main goal is to block President Obama's re-election, CNN reported.

"He wants to beat Barack Obama," one friend said.

, "Yeah, I'm putting aolsmt 10% of my net worth into this business; now how much can I get from you?"If I had billions of dollars and I really wanted to get someone elected, I wouldn't mess around. For $100 million you could send a $10 bribe to every likely open voter in all the swing states. Considering how many Obama voters seemed to believe goodies were coming their way on his inauguration, I think that $10 could buy quite a few votes. Or pick a single issue: if you're anti-abortion, start calling abortion clinics and offering to buy them out, requiring non-compete agreements that prevent them from going into the same business elsewhere. If you're anti-gun, do the same with gun shops. But before I bothered with politics, I'd take care of the important stuff. For $100 million each, I could bring back the casts and crews of a few of my favorite TV shows that got cancelled too early and have them finished right. Another $100M could make a few miniseries from books that deserve it (a lot more than that lame Harry Potter stuff). The Magnum movie would be done with Tom Selleck, as God intended.My town's public school system hosts about 6000 inmates. Their parents spend hundreds of dollars on books, but of course they get reamed, because they're stuck buying what the schools tell them to. Books aren't that expensive to produce, so for $60M I could easily have a full set of right-leaning textbooks made up and donate them to the schools, with enough left over to give away to homeschoolers. The locals, sick of constant property tax increases, wouldn't let them refuse free textbooks even if the science book had a picture of Adam & Eve on the cover.Or pay for a reunion game between the 1984 Lakers and Celtics, or for Stephen King to go back and rewrite that one chapter you never liked, or to get PETA to endorse Hardee's. (For the right price, I bet they'd find a way to justify it.) Or give a million dollars to every Catholic nun who wears a full habit or priest who wears a cassock.Rich people just don't seem to have much imagination about throwing money around. I'm sure yachts and fancy restaurants and college buildings with your name on them are nice, but they can't be that much fun. Where are the Al Czerviks? (Besides Donald Trump, I guess.) I'd have fun with it --which might explain why they're still rich and I'm still not at all -- but what's the point of being rich otherwise? http://mcftxtnqs.com [url=http://nookltvcj.com]nookltvcj[/url] [link=http://mtlgcoaxb.com]mtlgcoaxb[/link]

The military has been mvnoig towards the Democratic Party with Obama WINNING the big Marine Base, Camp Pendleton, CA; Fort Lewis, WA; Fort Benning, GA; Fort Bragg,NC; Fort Stewart, GA; and Schofield, Hawaii. Our military is made up of many blacks and Hispanics who know many in the Party of Lincoln hate them. Democrats would probably do better yet if not for commanders brainwashing young recruits from boot camp on that Republicans LOVE the military, Democrats HATE the military. My partner, joining the US Navy at age 18. Although raised in a Democratic family, he was told constantly for the next 23 years how much Democrats hated his uniform and service to our nation. He was told to vote for Republicans by his C.O.'s ending with George W. Bush in 2000. However, we used to go to the port in Corpus Christi to watch the miles of train cars bringing vehicles from Fort Bliss, Fort Carson, and Fort Hood to be loaded onto Navy transports for Iraq. For some time, the Humvees had no armor, even had CANVAS for door coverings which gave no protection for IED's planted along Iraqi roads. It took some time before soldiers in Iraq got needed armor. We were NOT READY for that war. Our soldiers even took it upon themselves to go to dumps there to scour for metal to weld over doors. Parents were buying Kevlar vests, and better helmets for their kids being deployed by the Bush administration. But since TROLLS never post a credible fact I will post this link from Rupert Murdoch's REICHwing Wall Street Journal. In the meantime the industries of the military-industrial complex (like Cheney's Halliburton/KBR) were getting billion dollar contracts for Bush Wars. When my partner began to realize that the GOP LOVES the military contractors while ignoring the boots-on-the-ground he voted for John Kerry in 2004, the first time in his life to support a Democrat. BTW, military deployed to combat zones PAY NO INCOME TAX! They pay taxes on their salary when not in a war zone, but things like housing allowance and separation pay are not taxed. They receive many benefits, such as free health care for the entire family, free tuition for active duty soldiers to college (not to be confused with their GI Bill which is separate) and many other benefits that a normal job does not provide.
