THIS IS ABSOLUTELY TRUE!
HERITAGE FOUNDATION, RAISING FUNDS FOR THEIR "HERITAGE ACTION FOR AMERICA" HIGH-POWERED 'LOBBYING' GROUP, IS MEETING AT THE VERY CLASSY BANDON DUNES GOLF RESORT IN OREGON FOR OYSTER-TASTING, WINE-TASTING, AND A FEW ROUNDS OF VERY EXCLUSIVE GOLF WHILE THEIR REPUBLICAN CONGRESSIONAL DARLINGS WERE SUPPOSED TO BE IN ATTENDANCE.
AS IF THAT IS NOT A BIG ENOUGH SLAP IN THE FACE OF MIDDLE-CLASS AMERICAN TAXPAYERS, THEY TRIED TO HIDE THE EVENT ONCE THE GOVERNMENT SHUT DOWN, TOOK IT OFF THE HERITAGE WEBSITE!
YES, AMERICA, WHILE OUR NATION FACES IMPENDING ECONOMIC DOOM, HERITAGE FOUNDATION PULLED THE INVITATION FROM ITS WEBSITE, BUT CONFIRMED TO HUFFINGTON POST THAT THE EVENT IS STILL ON!
WHY WOULD THE SUPER-RICH LET A LITTLE THING LIKE A GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN STOP THEIR FUNDRAISING FOR THE WASHINGTON/WALL STREET SWEETHEARTS?
"LET 'EM EAT CAKE!" MIGHT AS WELL BE PLASTERED ACROSS THE "CONFIRMED TO ATTEND" CONGRESSMEN LIKE SOUTH CAROLINA'S PAIR, JEFF DUNCAN AND MICK MULVANEY, AND FLORIDA'S CONGRESSMAN, RON DESANTIS!
WHILE SPOKESMEN FOR THE THREE PARTY-GOERS NOW SAY THEY WON'T BE ATTENDING THIS WEEKEND, MAYBE, JUST MAYBE, THIS WILL PROD THE REPUBLICAN WHORE-HOUSE AND BROTHEL-SENATE MEMBERS TO "GET 'ER DONE" BEFORE THEY HAVE TO MISS OUT ON SUCH A PEACHY, CUSHY DEAL TO RUB...UMMM... ELBOWS(?) WITH THEIR FAVORITE "JOHNS"?
WE CAN ONLY HOPE THIS "STIMULUS" IS ONE THE 'PUBLICANS GO PANTING AFTER SO THEY GET THE HELL OUT OF TOWN AFTER RESTARTING THE GOVERNMENT AND GO PLAY THEMSELVES SOME NIIIIIIICE GOLF...AND WHATEVER ELSE THEY PLAN TO DO UP IN OREGON.
With the federal government shut down and the economy hurtling toward the debt limit deadline of Oct. 17, the architects of the Republican Party's shutdown strategy are getting ready for a plush four-day fundraiser at what Golf Digest once called the number one golf resort in America.
Yes, with Washington in chaos, Heritage Foundation President Jim
DeMint is scheduled to attend a major fundraiser for Heritage Action for
America, the lobbying arm of DeMint's insurrectionist empire, at
Oregon's Bandon Dunes Golf Resort. Heritage Action confirmed to HuffPost
that the fundraiser is still on.
The invitation for the fundraiser has apparently been taken off
Heritage's website, but could still be found through the website cache.
Unfortunately for three previously announced attendees, Reps. Jeff
Duncan (R-S.C.), Mick Mulvaney (R-S.C.) and Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.), the
debacle left in the wake of Heritage's defund-Obamacare campaign
beckons. Spokespeople for the three congressmen confirmed to HuffPost
that they will not be attending.
While they remain in Washington to deal with the small problems of
getting 800,000 furloughed federal workers back on the job and making
sure that payments from WIC and other aid programs go out to families in need,
DeMint and the other attendees at the Heritage event will be relaxing
with rounds of golf, an oyster and wine-tasting reception and an
after-dinner gathering with scotch and cigars.
Corporate sponsorships for the Bandon Dunes fundraiser range from
$5,000 to put the company logo on the boxed lunches to $10,000 to
sponsor the scotch-and-cigars event.
But if a corporation really wants
to praise Heritage's work leading the charge to shutter the federal
government, it could donate $75,000 and gain admittance for four along
with the company name on one of the four courses played during the
fundraiser and the company logo displayed on caddie bibs, scorecards,
golf balls and the first tee box.
HANG ON A SEC!
$75,000 WOULD PAY OFF BOTH MY DAUGHTER'S AND MY OLDEST GRANDSON'S STUDENT LOANS!
WHERE, OH, WHERE, DO I SIGN UP TO BE EITHER A "CADDIE BIB" OR A "TEE BOX"?
SAY, HAVE I GOT A DEAL FOR YOU "CORPORATIONS"!
FOR THE INCREDIBLY LOW PRICE OF A COOL $1 MILLION IN GOLD (SINCE OUR CURRENCY IS WORTHLESS NOW, Y'KNOW, OR MAYBE YOU DON'T KNOW) I'LL LET YOU BRING A WHITE-HOT POKER AND BRAND YOUR COMPANY LOGO ON MY VERY RED LEFT BUTT CHEEK!
YOU CAN'T PASS UP A DEAL LIKE THAT!
I WANT TO BE LIKE CONGRESS...SELLING IT TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER!
I WANT TO BE A "TEAM PLAYER", A "REAL PATRIOT" IN THE SPIRIT OF GOOD OL' AMERICAN CAPITALISM!
I WANNA "SELL MY SOUL TO THE COMPANY STORE!" LIKE MY ELECTED OFFICIALS HAVE DONE....YES, YES! I CAN DO THIS!
ONWARD, LED BY IDIOTS, WE GO!
BE SURE TO GO READ THE ARTICLE...IT'S A REAL DOOZY!
