So I went to buy these really comfortable shoes on-line for a horrifying $90 a pair (Charles would have been horrified at the thought of such cheap shoes) . . . with free shipping because I was buying two . . . but just before I completed my purchase, seeing the APPLY PROMO CODE field on the checkout page, I Googled FLORSCHEIM PROMO CODE, clicked the first entry that appeared, cut and pasted the code into the field, and completed the purchase for 25% off, saving $45. Elapsed time for the Google detour-cut-and-paste? Maybe 30 seconds. If I could make $45 every 30 seconds for a year, I’d have an extra $47 million. Moral: any time you’re about to make a significant on-line purchase, take a few seconds to check for a promo code.
CHRIS HAYES ON $50,000-A-PLATE DINNERS
So you have to watch this video essay on the corrosive effect of political fundraisers. Really. You have to. One distinction I would make between that Chris Hayes does not: at ours, the donors want their taxes raised (and campaign contribution limits lowered); at theirs, the donors want their taxes lowered (and campaign contribution limits infinite). Also, our top ask is a bargain — only $40,000 a plate.
So their dinners and our dinners are really not the same. But still. Watch this powerful piece.
