Money bomb update: Just for fun

Today, Republican candidate for Congress John Dennis is holding a money bomb event, trying to raise an attention-getting amount of money for his campaign to defeat Nancy Pelosi in California's 8th Congressional district.

Are you climbing the walls with anger over the health care bill? Are you typing "How to fight socialism" into the Google search box? Are you sick of the sanctimonious, preening politicians who insist that working Americans have a responsibility to pay the living expenses of, well, everybody else?

Is that what's troubling you, Bunky?

Maybe you'll feel better when you find out that the Internal Revenue Service will get $10 billion of your tax dollars to pay for enforcement of health care reform. The new law puts the IRS in charge of penalizing people who can afford health insurance but don't buy it, as well as subsidizing people who need it but can't afford it.

Good thing no one would ever lie on their tax returns just to avoid a huge fine or get free money.

While you still have an extra dollar lying around, you might want to use it to let Speaker Pelosi know how you feel:

Even if you just send five dollars, or one dollar, you'll be helping by adding your name to the list of Americans who are serious about their opposition to higher taxes, bigger government, more debt, and collectivist policies that trample individual rights.

Donor lists like this can be rented to other candidates around the country, helping to rally support and turn out the vote this November.

Not everyone has the whole day free to ring doorbells and make phone calls. Not everyone is a college student or a government employee.

But people who work for a living can organize, too.

Today's money bomb:

Tell a friend.
