Economic Stimulus = Progressive Funding

Very kind of Bushco to give us money to fund causes and campaigns opposed to his interests. And that's what I'm going to do with some of the "Economic Stimulus" money I got. I noticed that True Majority has put forth their request to membership for a share of the Bushco largesse. Opportunism? Of course! And a great opportunity it is. How often does your opponent so blatantly give you the means to help bring him down? I understand times are tough and the money may come in handy in many other ways; at least consider parting with a few bucks. $20 donations from a whole lot of people can be a helpful shot in the arm for some of these great organizations you already know and love and support.

May I suggest:

- the environmental organization of your choice, such as:
NRDC (covering the legal angle)
The Nature Conservancy
Rainforest Action Network
to name a few
- Apollo Alliance (national Apollo moonshot-scale project to convert the economy from fossils to renewables)
- Progressive Democrats of America
- any state or national office candidate with (or without) a hope of defeating a right-wing or anti-environment or pro-Iraq War candidate

For candidate guidance, on environmental issues at least, visit the website of the League of Conservation Voters.
