Weekly Poll
How much do you think large monetary contributions to campaigns can sway elected officials?

Way too much; it’s seriously time to big take money out of politics.
Enough to reevaluate campaign finance laws and how they impact our political system.
Maybe a little; but in the end they still must answer to voters.
Not a concern; it’s how things work, and any serious candidate must stack some chips.

You can pry my 'Under Siege' DVD from my cold, dead hands

By Dugan Byrnes - Oceano

Wot’s this!? I’m all set for some redneck rock with Nugent and the Mouthbreathers, when I see the New Times ad for Vina Robles concerts, and it’s gone! Had my AR-15 all lubed up, my Mitch McConnell blow-up doll inflated, and a case of Bud Light in the cooler. Damn! If these socialist bastards keep taking away our freedoms ... . If they cancel the Steven Seagal film festival, there’s going to be real trouble.
