    But officer, the guy ahead of me was driving even faster. Why did you pull me over?

    I find this forced contribution stuff funny - if you signed the contract it indicated you willing to prostitute your self .

    At one time it was very fashionable to give to the needy & we were all hit for a donate. I brought in a sack of dog food & a sack of cat food as I felt they were the most vulnerable & the most needy. Had some really mad bosses .

    Actually it was not in the partnership agreement, but was a decision of the board of partners and compliance was made part of the process of partner evaluation for future compensation adjustments (which regularly went both up and down). I negotiated that I would contribute more than the amount stipulated in payments directly to Democrats where the firm's PAC felt it was appropriate. I avoided writing checks directly to the PAC after the first year and never sent money to someone I was not willing to support. It did force a substantial increase in my political donations.

    EDIT:
    That was far from the only thing I ever did as a partner that made me feel dirty. That contributed to the fact that I left after 12 years. As it turned out, I would have been forced out shortly after anyway since the SEC forced the firms to eliminate their consulting practices.

    That's strikingly similar to General Electric contributing to President Obama's campaign while they own NBC.

    Do all of the Fox News bashers actually believe the coverage on Fox during the election coverage Tuesday remotely compares to the blatant and pitiful display of media bias that was displayed on MSNBC? Please!!!!

    I watch them even less than I watch Fox. However, I do watch CNBC for financial news during the day, turning them off as soon as the screaming idiots start their work. For election coverage I watched CNN and follow http://fivethirtyeight.blogs.nytimes.com/ which seems to still be doing a great job despite being purchased by the NY Times.

    Not only that, they gave thousands to Boehner, Sen Burr (R-NC), Sen Bunning, Vitter, and many others. Most of their contributions are funneled through their PAC and go to both Dems and Reps who are typically incumbents in positions of power that could affect GE's business interests.

    Care to guess how much FOX News personalities Hannity, Palin, Beck, and Huckabee donated and raised for candidates and the RNCC and RNSC?

    Jeff, I'll save you the trouble of trying to figure that out on your own.
