  1. You could buy..what…a million anti-malaria shots for that? How many sachets of those emergency rations that save the lives of malnourished children? Or maybe, closer to home for them, how many safe nights of sleep for homeless families or veterans?

    No, they spend it on trying to curtail the rights of tax-paying law-abiding citizens. Contemptuous hypocritical filth.

  2. It does irk me when I see these kinds of things. Surely that money could be spent elsewhere?

    Also, how dare they hold a referendum on love. It is about time they stood up and said “you want to decide on whether I can marry, then I decide on allowing you divorce”

  3. Doesnt happen over here.

    Have NOM disclosed the names of their donors yet, as ordered to by Maine’s courts under the state’s laws for lobbying groups, a ruling that the US First Circuit Court of Appeal backed the state on?

    If not, why not? And if not, why isn’t this money being confiscated by the state until they do?

  6. Good. I’d rather they waste the money in Maine where we’ll win anyway, than spend it in a more marginal state where they might change the result. Yes, of course I’d rather they spent it on condoms to prevent the sprea of AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa or something equally worthwhile, but that isn’t going to happen.

  7. Mr Schubert sure really hates, in three states as well.

    I wonder why?

  8. $250000.
    It’s a big number, but for a state like Maine, that will dry up really fast.
    That’s gives them less than 20 cents for each person living there.

    The latest opinion polls from Maine show, that difference between two camps is much more little than one month ago…
