    isn't it, greenbell?

    AIPAC sends 13,000 lobbyists to congress and we get their "proclamation" of their undying love and support for war, for Israel.

    Campaign contributions and free luxury trips to Israel paid by AIPAC buys a lot of attention and support.

    And yet, as citizens, as voters, they find it so easy to ignore us, how truly sad and disgusting that is.

    I got to thinking a couple of weeks ago when Obama was in Israel at how easy it is for all of them to recite their unconditional, non-negotiable, support for Israel but you can't even get a clear declarative sentence out of them on Social Security.  
    Can we stop sending our donations to these people and hire lobbyists to plead our causes to them, instead?
