Huh?

From a list of contributors to Ron Paul's presidential campaign. (Thanks emailer) (And everyone be careful with the comments and don't go off half cocked with "facts" that you can't back up.)

Due to a verbal lashing I received from a resident of Alvord who works at a/the "local" bank in Decatur regarding my plan to bulldoze the town and start over by renaming the city "Jarheadville," I am unable to comment further on this post.

Please be advised that I am fully "cocked."

And I can "back it up."

Woot.

A bunch of school districts from around the country contributed to Mr. Paul. Is this legal?

There are several Alvord School Districts (Iowa, California) in the US. I also noticed that a "Decatur School District" was listed as a Paul contributor. Alabama? Georgia? Texas? Illinois?

Just, the facts, ma'am.

Why isn't bone-crusher Westbrook on the list? I thought he was a BIG supporter. He had a Ron Paul sign in front of his office for a LONG ass time.

I would be curious to know the story behind all of this if anyone knew. Looking at the list, there are several school districts, along with federal, state and local governments. You saw several donations from the Army, Army National Guard, Department of Defense, etc.

Would there be some kind of deal where employees would be able to make a donation to the campaign from their pay and the donation would show being from the employer instead of the employee? That is what I am thinking might be happening here. Surely, it is not legal for all of these government entities to donate to his campaign.

That's contribution by Employer. All that tells me is that whoever contributed listed where they work; which means, the School didn't necessarily contribute, just someone who works there.

Thanks for clearing that up 2:36. I had the feeling that it was probably something like that.

Well I'll Swan...Old people say that a lot and it makes me laugh a lot.

Has no one ever donated on-line? You can put whatever name you want. As long as the e-mail address is valid. The credit card clears, because there is a line for Name of Contributor. When you go to the secure sight for Credit card info, that is where you have to use real name.

This reminds me of the time a few years ago when "The Mess" told us that a multi-screen movie theater would be built in CHICO. Turned out it was Chico, California!

4:44 - sorry sweetie, but it is "well I'll Swanee"....and I'm old, but don't have any idea where the phrase came from, just remember hearing a story that a kid heard his dad say it and the kid responded, "hey, dad's gonna swanee"......(???)..whatever that meant.......

Wonder if it had to do with "way down upon the Swanee River", or that somebody was doing their "swan song" - meaning "the end"........

Well, not to worry, WORDKYLE will give us the proper background research.
