Paul Koehler In The Studio

 
 

Howdy,

Meinl Cymbal Artist Paul Koehler of the Canadian band Silverstein is currently in the studio working on the quintet's next record. These guys literally never stop. Since I began working with Meinl 5 + years ago, Paul and the band have been on a never ending cycle of album, tour, album, tour...They are either totally crazy or they totally love what they are doing. I'll go with the latter.

Anyway, Paul just sent me some very cool photos of him doing pre-production. The photos were taken by a cat named Brooks Reynolds. Check 'em out.

Since lobbying and poctiilal contributions are not mentioned in the Constitution, all your amendment does is preclude the argument for corporate contribution based on the First Amendment. There is a sea of clever lawyers out there that may be able to create non-corporate entities or other means to get around your amendment. And it does not prevent Congress or the states from passing legislation allowing corporate poctiilal donations. Your amendment doesn’t prevent unincorporated PACs, churches, or poctiilal parties from making contributions. And it does nothing about lobbying. Party support is as big of a problem as corporate support. Why don’t you just say that we are limiting support for elections and lobbying to people? For example:“Only individual, human being, residents of the USA may contribute resources to influence the outcome of any election or to create, modify, or advance any legislative bill—federal, state, or local. Those contributed resources must be owned free and clear by the contributing individual with no conditions or claims held by any organization, including business, professional, religious, and union organizations.”This form of the amendment would not prohibit organizations from lobbying, it would simply allow funding to those organizations to flow only from people. The problem with your amendment is that it will take a huge effort to get it passed, thus: 1) using up a major bullet and 2) disillusioning people that the problem is solved and thus delaying the real solution for probably decades.
