I don’t know if this is the place to say it, yet I believe I’m speaking on behalf of all the others when I say:

WE ADORE YOU ADLIB! You’re the greatest!

…. Now, about that position of POV WH correspondent. I figure I’ll need head-to-toe Chanel (yes, nothing has changed since last summer, I just recycle my requests cause sometimes… I get lucky).

We will have to do better than that, with mine just now, we only have 3 Diggs. Come on everyone, Digg away!

How to DIGG an article at the Planet:

Just below the star rating and the thumbs up thumbs down is a row of icons. These are share icons. The second one is for DIGG

If you want to DIGG AdLib’s Corporations Are People, Too — go to the article and click the DIGG icon. You’ll be taken to the the DIGG website. If you don’t have an account, you can sign up, and then you’ll be asked how you want to submit the article. It’s easy!

Kalima, if you run into a problem, let me know!

I can’t get it to cooperate. I will try again tomorrow. For now…G’night all. May see you in the my morn, Kalima. Nite, Nellie.

Nite, bito. have a restful night of sweet dreams.

Kalima

Good night bito, rest well.

Take care and be safe.

No problem, try it again in your morning, I should be here and will give you a hand.

Kalima

I’ve been a member of Digg since last August and have tried to submit articles from here twice but failed as it is not the same process as the last place I blogged. Just thought that AdLib’s post would be read by many there too.

nellie

We have share buttons at the bottom of each article — We should be able to send to Digg.

And… it’s sent!

nellie

Digg is a great idea. Let me try it.

Kalima
Admin

It didn’t work for me, maybe I wasn’t doing it right in the first place. 😳

That would be good nellie, thanks.

bito

I had to register. That thing is cantankerous!
I think it worked. (?)

Kalima

It was so easy at another place I blogged, you just had to Digg it on the Blog and it would take you to a submitted article on the Digg site, where you just had to digg it again.

When I tried to submit from here they wouldn’t accept the title. I tried for 30 minutes, swore loudly at my computer screen and had a cup of tea instead.

nellie

it worked for me! :mrgreen:

Kalima

😆 Ok nellie, don’t rub it in!

Where is it so that I can go to Digg it?

nellie
Member

Do you have an account? we want as many people to digg as possible….

Then you can rub it in, too!

nellie
Member

I did the same thing just now — I tried to sign up with my already registered user name. Luckily, I remembered the password — after a few tries…

So you’re not alone 😉

Kalima

Yes, my name there is Kalimatoo, they said kalima was already taken but it was me a week before messing up. 🙁

OK. This is the place to take action! Send a copy to your Senators and Rep!
DO IT!

bito

nellie, How many people have sent AdLibs post “Corporations Are People Too” to other sites, newspapers and other media? I have sent it to 4.
Do we need to ad links to a site to take action? Like Rep. Graysons petition?
Edit: should someone send it to Grayson? Cool house speech during the 1 minute morning speeches! I could see him reading it!!

I left a comment and link to it over at Veterans Today, in one of Gordon Duff’s articles about arresting the 5 that voted for this atrocity.

nellie

I don’t think Grayson is going to say “kiss my ass” on the senate floor, but he’d probably love the sentiment.

I think we should send it wherever we want — Stephanie Miller’s radio show, Thom Hartmann would love it, Chris Matthews would probably appreciate it. If anyone’s on facebook, that’s a good place for it to go viral.

For my part — I think we should send it to all nine justices of the Supreme Court. I’ll see if I can find contact information.

Hopeington
Member

Those are the PERFECT people to send it to Nellie!
Why not?
And Grayson could just leave the last word off, I’m SURE the word will flow into everyone’s mind.

nellie

There’s a decorum on the senate floor — I don’t know. I wouldn’t wait for it to be read. But who knows.

I like the idea of sending it to the Supremes because the logic is so straightforward and solid — it shows so clearly that their reasoning is utterly specious.

I feel we should also send this to the ACLU — who supported this decision. I can’t imagine why they think speech = money, or why they think corporations = people. They need to hear from us.

Kiss my glass works for me. Point Made!

I prefer the word “arse” myself or we could use the German word “arschloch” but it doesn’t really rhyme with anything.

bito
Member

My German is a bit rusty Kalima, but I think that says more than arse. 😀

Kalima
Admin

Not as rusty as you might think bito, and yes it does. 🙂

Hard to rhyme the last 4 letters but you would pronounce it the same as the Loch in “Lochness Monster.”

Kalima
Admin

Yes of course, I had forgotten about that. 🙁

bito
Member

No, just Pa. German wasn’t real popular in the 50’s.

Kalima
Admin

😆 My kind of guy, didn’t you call him Opa?

bito
Member

I looked at it a few times and thought “I think Pa used that word”
😀 (Pa= my German Grand-father

Hey bito, why not send it to Franken, I would to hear him read it….or do you think he has put his SNL days behind him?

This is wicked cool! 😎

bito
Member

BDM, Good Idea, Mom, I think we should all send it to each of our Reps and Senators. I would love to see KYL’s pasty face! AdLib should be the one to send it to Grayson!

My dear Senator Lieberman, doesn’t read his constituents mail or takes their phones calls…Dodd on the other hand might just get a kick out of this, what the heck, he’s leaving, no skin off his nose to read it on the floor of the Senate.

bito

BDM, if we can 10 copies around the senate, it will case a bus. I think they have copiers there. lol
