AMERICA'S POOR VOTE FOR CONTINUED DOMINATION BY AMERICA'S RICH

'Huzzahs' Heard in Yacht Clubs Around the World
Billionaires Raise a Glass of Bubbly to their 2005 'Champaigns'


You read the headlines. You heard the concession speech. You've long
since turned off the television news. The bad news is that the
powerful elite aren't going anywhere. The good news is neither are the
Billionaires for Bush.

We've spent the last two months re-tooling. We're tan (very tan);
we're rested (as usual); we're ready. We hope you are too. Our upcoming
plans are ambitious and daring; our approach is proven and effective. We
hope you will continue to be a part of it.

So, without further ado...

Calling all far-flung colleagues of inordinate wealth! It is time to
dust off that smoking jacket, pull on those evening gloves, warm up that
limo, and help us continue to show the world that you can speak power
to truth.

Join fellow Billionaires for Bush from around the country at the
Re-Coronation Events for King, err, President Bush from January 20-23

$ The Re-Coronation Inaugural Ball
$ Auctioning off Social Security and other American Favorites
$ Launching our new national campaigns, or rather, Champaigns

LAUNCH OF OUR NEW NATIONAL CHAMPAIGNS

The election was just the beginning of the jackpot for Billionaires,
but we've only got four more years to cash in on our payoff. Let's get
started with these next CHAMPAIGNS!

$ Privatize Social Security: Cashing in on old people's retirement
savings hasn't been this easy since Enron looted California!

$ Eliminate the "Dynasty Tax" that steals a portion of the inheritance
Buffy and Miffy deserve to squander on sports teams and failed real
estate deals.

These plans and more will be discussed at the


BILLIONAIRES FOR BUSH NATIONAL CONVERGENCE

Billionaires for Bush from all across America -- from Beverly Hills to
Grosse Pointe to Wall Street -- will converge for a weekend of
planning, training, and strategy sessions. Intended for Billionaires who've
been active in their local chapters and want to keep the battle going, the
Convergence will be the chance for Billionaires from around the country
to meet, share their insights and experience, take part in informative
training sessions, and hear Progressive guest speakers as we move
forward into 2005.

Friday, January 21st, from 1 to 5pm, and Saturday, January 22nd, from
11am to 5pm in Washington DC.

The Billionaires for Bush


Shopper X desperately tries to find the hottest toy of the season at
All-Mart, when a holiday shopping brawl knocks her unconscious and
catapults her into DICK CHENEY'S HOLIDAY SPECTACULAR, a macabre, often
hilarious world of bling, billionaires, and holiday GREED-ings. The
Billionaires for Bush are about to show her the true meaning of the
holidays.

The Billionaires for Bush, lobbyists for the rich, the very rich, and
the very very rich are hosting DICK CHENEY'S HOLIDAY SPECTACULAR and
Party, December 20. They will be raising their martini glasses and
toasting Diebold, for delivering Ohio, and the Ghost of Christmas
Future, for revealing a conservatively compassionate vision of the
next four years.

The sparkling and irrepressible Billionaire Follies will remind you of
the true meaning of the holidays with hits such as "Rest Easy Wealthy
Gentlemen," "Prison Cells," "Georgie Baby," "We Three Kings of
Petroleum Are," and "Toys for the World (are made by kids)." The
fabulous stage show will also feature the 24-Karat Rockettes, Paul
Wolfowitz's new, improved version of the Chanukkah story, and a sneak
peek at the Billionaire Christmas Carol. Starring Fillmore Barrels,

Holiday reminder

Darlings -

Some of my gentle readers have written to inquire whether we Billionaires will cease or political activism, now that our dear Dubya has been re-appointed.

Nothing could be further from the truth (well, except for anything that comes from the White House press secretary - but there's a good reason for that!).

We do have much for which we can be grateful, as we wealthy ever do. Our schmoozer-in-chief, Phil T Rich, said in our post-election press release, "If the next four years resemble the last four, we'll have two more wars, $2 trillion added to the deficit, no increase in the minimum wage, continuing increases in the middle-class tax burden, another million jobs outsourced, and our corporate ice sculptures will continue to urinate fine Russian vodka."

We have much to celebrate: and celebrate we did; on private islands, in gold-plated jets, lips locked to the naughty bits of ice sculptures in all the world's great cities. We live in interesting times indeed and have high hopes; but they will remain but hopes unless we keep out eyes on that platinum prize. We must remain ever-vigilant, lest our government begin to neglect the wealthiest one percent. We will have our work cut out for us, as we will face opposition in our struggle to eliminate the dynasty tax and "privatize" (read: eliminate) Social Security.

We will need your help now more than ever, Billionaires and Billionairesses. And now that I've sobered up from the post-election champagne and Percoset binge little Dick and I went on, I'm ready to put in my two billion again.

I'll be keeping you updated on this blog and on the soon-to-be-restructured B4B blog. For now, some holiday shopping tips.

Block the Vote in Western PA

Now this is the way to do it. An "ostensibly nonpartisan" registration drive hired by the RNC to conduct a registration drive in the great swing state of Pennsylvania, has allegedly instructed its canvassers "to avoid registering Democrats or anyone who indicated support for Democratic nominee John F. Kerry."

Tharp said volunteers were sent door-to-door to seek registrants but were instructed to first ask prospective new voters which candidate they planned to support.

"If they said Kerry, we were just supposed to say thank you and walk away," Tharp said.


Legal, I think.

Thanks, Sproul & Associates!

Block the Vote in Philadelphia!

Via Three Guys, another reason to downsize our Block the Vote staff.

Once again, our employees have been less than discreet, as this article in the Philadelphia Daily News shows.

"It's predominantly, 100 percent black. I'm just not going in there to get a knife in my back."

-- Matt Robb, Republican ward leader in South Philadelphia, on his last-minute request to move five Philly polling places in African-American neighborhoods.

Chris Brennan (with a big assist from Dave Davies) has the scoop in today's Philadelphia Daily News. They learned that high-ranking state GOP and Bush operatives asked local Republicans to try to move 63 polling places at the last minute. Some 53 of the 63 polling places are in districts less than 10 percent white.


Please, Billionaires - Block the Vote, but keep it quiet!

hush-hush,

Dee

Debate!


Raise a cheer with W for American super-wealth! (image from hullabaloo)Posted by Hello

Thank Heavens the man hit so many key points. "Tort reform" is the best health care policy to benefit insurance companies, we needn't lower the minimum wage, we have to keep Canadian drugs out of the greasy paws of the poor, we needn't cover children.

Big Pharma in '04!

Blocking the Vote in America

Josh Marshall points out this article about an unfortunate snag in the Block the Vote effort. Apparently, a private registration company called Voter's Outreach of America has been caught throwing registration forms straight in the trash!

Former employees have turned over on their bosses, alleging that they saw supervisors bin Democrats' forms.

A quote follows -

"We caught her taking Democrats out of my pile, handed them to her assistant and he ripped them up right in front of us. I grabbed some of them out of the garbage and she tells her assisatnt to get those from me," said Eric Russell, former Voters Outreach employee.

This allowed upstart employees of our media to abandon their prescribed Bush hagiography to perform investigative acts of journalism:

Eric Russell managed to retrieve a pile of shredded paperwork including signed voter registration forms, all from Democrats. We took them to the Clark County Election Department and confirmed that they had not, in fact, been filed with the county as required by law.

Now, clearly this won't do. We can't Block the Vote with such simple tactics.

First of all, this article shows once again that we must reduce our dependence on domestic labor. Our workers cannot be allowed to get uppity enough to spill the beans on their natural superiors. Until our administration has ended regulation entirely, this will remain critical.

Secondly, this article reminds us never to leave a paper trail. Our friends at Diebold have done a great deal of work to make sure that we can steal this election and leave no evidence whatsoever. This is extraordinarily important - when we do our work in public, citizen outrage can harm our effots. For example, Ohio Secretary of State J. Kenneth Blackwell was forced to abandon his Block the Vote initiative after he publicly stated that he would only accept voter registration forms on "white, uncoated paper of not less than 80-pound text weight."

Of course, both Kenneth Blackwell and Voter's Outreach of America have the right idea - it's essential that we block the vote to get our full eight years. But children, please let's be more sophisticated about it!

As State Rep. John Pappageorge (R-Troy) said, "If we do not suppress the Detroit vote, we're going to have a tough time in this election cycle."

Please, darlings, try to suppress the vote - but not on record.

Craven ACTivism

America Coming Together has shown the foolishness of its get out the vote strategy.
They've lowered the cover for their Singles Auction to a measly $50.

How can anyone hope to buy an election for that sort of sum?

We Billionaires will appear in force to protest. Our shouts will be heard over the strains of Moby and Rene Risque.

Have no fear, darlings - we will surely block the vote.

Letter Writing Campaign to Save Diebold and Block the Vote!

The New York Times reports today that Diebold is in trouble again, and is being sued by Swarthmore students, no less.

The Times seems to have an all-out vendetta against Diebold. The author of this article has the gall to complain about the time-honored relationship between money and politics.

I quote: "As doubts have grown about the reliability of electronic voting, some of its loudest defenders have been state and local election officials. Many of those same officials have financial ties to voting machine companies."

For Heavens' sake. Anyone with half a brain will defend her investments!

And again: "Even while in office, many election officials are happy to accept voting machine companies' largess. The Election Center takes money from Diebold and other machine companies, though it will not say how much. At the center's national conference last month, the companies underwrote meals and a dinner cruise."

We Billionaires need to make these investments! Clearly, it's not enough to invest in politicians. Even though we've bought our leaders fair and square, the unwashed middle classes make attempts to vote. We must do everything we can to make sure their votes don't count.

We're doing the best we can, and now 43 percent of the budget of the National Association of Secretaries of State comes from voting machine companies and other Billionaire investments.

Diebold is doing its part, and working hard. In fact, their CEO, Wally O'Dell, even said "I am committed to helping Ohio deliver its electoral votes to the President." That's dedication, darlings. That's honesty.

The Billionaires for Bush have an instructional music video on Diebold. It's entertaining and informative. Watch it here.

Please write to the New York Times and ask them to stop this campaign against corporate dominance of American politics.

Singles Auction - Block the...

Darlings -

On Tuesday, October 12, America Coming Together will be sponsoring a singles auction to further its dastardly plan to mobilize voters. At their affair, at the Slipper Room at 7:30, ACT will be auctioning off celebrities like Moby and Quentin Heggs.

The Billionaires, of course, are wildly opposed to such a thing as voting. As you know, we feel that we deserve to get our money's worth, and keep our man in for eight full years - after all, that's what we paid for. We're a bit afraid that he may lose the popular vote again if ACT keeps this up, and so we're having our servants work just as hard as they can on our Block the Vote campaign.

So, an invitation is hereby issued to all my Billionaire friends and neighbors -- don't let rabble rousers like Moby and Jay McInerney have their way!

Come to the Singles Auction. Bring your staff. We'll Block the Vote...and I suppose, if we're successful, we'll block something else as well.

The Yes Men

Darlings,

Last night I stopped in at a lovely party for The Yes Men, a fabulous organization of Bush and globalization supporters who are celebrating the opening of their movie.

The Yes Men use refreshing, original tactics to promote global capitalism and the politicians who make it possible. For example, while working for the WTO, they designed a suit that allows executives to keep track of all their workers at all times, and presented it to a group of businessmen and women in Finland. They explained to the conference what a step up globalization is from slavery. I happen to agree. This compassionate conservative thinks foreign workers deserve every cent of their dollar a week!

The Yes Men have been travelling the country lately to promote our President's agenda. Yes Bush Can have been travelling the country, promoting such worthy causes as clear-cutting our national parks to get our hands on all that good lumber! They recommend a new mascot, Smokey the Log, for our parks. You can hear his song here.

Thank heavens we're not alone. After that unfortunate little debate on Thursday, I'm glad to have so many good people on our side.

In Solvent Solidarity,

Dee

The Youth of America

Although they don't seem always to understand the key issues at stake in this election (more money for the moneyed) and they don't have a fine grasp on the finer points of spelling and grammar, the Angry 15 Year Olds for Bush certainly feel strongly about their candidate.

I suppose I can't really fault them. George Bush certainly showed that education is a privilege, not a right. And thank Heavens he did: when he underfunded the NCLB by $9.4 billion, he helped finance a $1.1 trillion tax cut for the very wealthiest - like me!

Unfortunately, that Hillary Clinton has recently introduced a bill that would fully fund NCLB.

Clearly, this is a foolish waste of funds. My hard-inherited money can stay right in my fur-lined pocket, so long as our children support the proper candidate. Luckily, I don't need to worry about blocking their votes...yet.

New Music Video

Our very own 50 Billion's new music video is up at the Billionaires for Bush website. The video has great artistic merit, and does a fine job detailing the way we Billionaires have gained influence over the White House.

Also, the new song "Don't Vote", which inagurates our "Block the Vote" campaign, is also available.

Party for Bush!

Sweetest ones,

Our dearest George W. Bush will be blessing our little town with his presence once again!

This Monday, September 20th, he will be attending a little party for some of his biggest donors at the Sheraton at 53d street and 7th avenue.

Of course, many Billionaires will be at the event. Some of you may not know this, but nearly half of our nation's billionaires have given money to Bush - while only 37 misguided billionaires have given money to Kerry.

With 90% of Bush's individual campaign contributions coming from the very wealthiest, and 80% of his PAC money coming from business interests, one can expect that the Billionaires will be there to welcome him to town!

I will be attending high tea before the event, but hope to get a glimpse of my favorite possession, the President himself. And of course, I hope to see all of you, my compatriots in the nation of wealth.

Uptown for Plutocracy

Today I went with fellow Billionaires Robin Eublind, Lou Tamerica, and Bill Eons to the Downtown for Democracy street fair. We did a bit of outreach to the charming artists, and spread the Uptown for Plutocracy message just as well as we could.

We did have an unfortunate run in with the law, but our team of attorneys got us out in time for us to do a bit of dancing, and to buy some artists for our collections.

Middle-class media bias

Darlings,

Once again, our media employees have published beautiful pictures of us, but once again they mischaracterize our mission. Can someone's assistant please get on the phone with Time and tell them that there is no need for us to "use parody" to communicate our "belief" that this Administration has "favored the corporate elite at the expense of ordinary Americans"?

As I've reminded you all time and time again, it's no mere belief that our darling W has favored us....after all, as the top 1% of America received 52% of his tax cuts, that leaves only 48% for the bottom 99.

Who needs parody to get across such clear truth?

Art Party tomorrow

Darlings -

Good news! The Billionaires will be putting in a special appearance at the Downtown for Democracy Street Fair tomorrow.

We have some quarrels, of course, with the notions of "downtown" (unless we're slumming) and "democracy" (why not just buy a politician?) but, as I've said before, we're always charmed when the differently-advantaged come out to play. In addition, I personally make the greatest effort to attend any event that includes a champagne brunch.

Hope to see you there!

Scandal!

Sweetest ones,

This new site makes an allegation about our President that could, if true, make even this wealthy one-percenter reconsider her support for him.

These folks suggest a Truth so shocking that even I, who have personally received handout after handout from this administration, might look elsewhere for a leader-in-name.

I don't know what to say. The Pleasure Boat Captains for Truth allege that our President W can't hold his liquor!

I will send my lawyers to investigate, as soon as they have finished giggling at the latest EPA directive.

Dee

Late Update

I should have known not to trust anyone in such an awful shirt as the middle-class boater in those ads! In fact, the PBCT's very website links to this page, which proves that not only could W drink before he quit, he still kept on swilling after he went on the wagon.

Now, that's my kind of man!

Art parties

Darlings -

Once again, a brief post as I am simply exhausted! This evening was quite a whirlwind of activity for this Billionairess.

I stopped by two gallery parties this evening with a select group of Billionaires for Bush - first at James Delavega's space, and then at Carlito's Cafe y Galeria.

It was a fascinating experience for me. Both galleries are on Lexington Avenue, which is, of course, quite familiar. But here's the catch - Delavega's space is on 103d street, and Carlito's on 106th! I had absolutely no idea that the streets went up above 96th street, but it was an absolute pleasure, as always, to be in Connecticut!

I must say, though, that I was surprised by the goings-on at Carlito's. I knew that the exhibit was about President Bush's domestic policy, so of course I went along to support. Any man who widens the income gap so much deserves all the support I can give him, and I think the financial help isn't enough (though I do thank the two-thirds of American billionaires who've written him such big checks!).

But here's the strange thing, darlings - apparently the folks at Carlito's were less than happy with the man! They had all sorts of little complaints about the jobs lost, services cut, and other such rubbish.

I ask you this: why don't they buy their own president?

Miss Appropriation, dressed for success. Posted by Hello


Before we went to the reception at Artists for Change, we stopped by James Delavega's gallery. Turns out he's a fan of ours! In addition, he tells us that he's running for State Senate.

Swift Yacht Vets for Bush

Darlings,

Good news! A new front has opened in the war of "shadowy 527s." Those nasty folks at MoveOn won't be able to spread their lies about the president's character any more. The people at Swift Yacht Vets for Bush will set them straight.

Wretched morning

Darlings,

I was out too, too late at the Billionaires' Coronation ball last night so I must be brief.

This week has been a whirlwind of activities on behalf of our President and all his little friends (Hi Dick!) and this afternoon I plan to rest, and to allow my masseuse to tend to my poor tired feet.

Kisses,

Dee
