William Harasym for Congress 2012

I am running as a "Write-in" Candidate for Wyoming's Seat in the United States House of Representatives in the 2012 Election! I am against the current system of Campaign Financing. I am also against the major disparities in ex-offender voting disenfranchisement throughout the United States. Separate but equal has never worked, and it doesn't with voter disenfranchisement either. I will not take money from anyone, not a damn penny, and you can take that to the bank! I will represent "ALL" the citizens of the "Equality State" of Wyoming, not just special interests, multi-national corporations, religious theocracies or one political ideology or the other.

Our country is facing many very serious problems, yet both parties, including our own Republican Congressperson Lummis and Senators Barrasso and Enzi continue to be more interested in playing their partisan games, flame wars, and arrogant ideological stubbornness, all at the behest of their congressional bosses, their corporate-backed lobbyists and their noisy corporate astro-turf front groups. This modern system of campaign financing is all about gaining influence and access, and it can be said to be a legitimate form of bribery. And "Both Parties Do It"!

It truly is time for "We the People" to rise up and speak truth to power in Washington, and take back our government from big business and Wall Street! So, as an "Independent and Unfinanced Write-in Candidate" I want to inform and educate the citizens of Wyoming on the going ons of our wealthy member of the House of Representative in Congress. She really works at the behest of her big money donors. I ask everyone to see who funds your Representative and how they cast their votes. It is the unwritten rule in politics and lobbying --- the ole' "quid pro quo", one hand washes the other in layman's terms. Everyone on Capitol Hill knows it's the norm their, otherwise why would folks, companies (Now since Citizens United) lobbyist, and PACs pump all their money into the campaign coffers of the elite, and mostly wealthy 535 elected people on Capitol Hill. This is a sad political facts of life that I DEEPLY OPPOSE with regard to both major parties. We really need to end multi-national corporations and their lobbying efforts influencing and buying the Congress of the United States of America! What all this means is money and lots of it is needed to get a seat in the House or Senate. There is no longer any opportunities for those without financial backers or their own personal wealth to ever get to represent their district or state in the US Capitol.

I will not accept one penny, nickel, dime or dollar from anyone, any group, any business, any party or any PAC! I refuse to take a damn penny. If anyone wants to volunteer, I have no problem with that, but that is the extent of my asking for help. People Power- YES, Money- NO!"I think our Founding Fathers would be mighty proud of that!


Thanks for your time!

Best wishes always,

William Harasym

Please note: this conversation starts about 10 minutes in — by this point my wife and I are both completely flustered by the oppressiveness of the rep.

So! Last week my wife called to disconnect our service with Comcast after we switched to another provider (Astound). We were transferred to cancellations (aka “customer retention”).

The representative (name redacted) continued aggressively repeating his questions, despite the answers given, to the point where my wife became so visibly upset she handed me the phone. Overhearing the conversation, I knew this would not be very fun.

What I did not know is how oppressive this conversation would be. Within just a few minutes the representative had gotten so condescending and unhelpful I felt compelled to record the speakerphone conversation on my other phone.

This recording picks up roughly 10 minutes into the call, whereby she and I have already played along and given a myriad of reasons and explanations as to why we are canceling (which is why I simply stopped answering the rep’s repeated question — it was clear the only sufficient answer was “Okay, please don’t disconnect our service after all.”).

Please forgive the echoing and ratcheting sound, I was screwing together some speaker wires in an empty living room!

Real Time with Bill Maher: 6.6.14 — Anthony Weiner, Jim Geraghety, Nicolle Wallace


Holy shit, Anthony Weiner actually said something important.

It’s a miracle!

That’s been the Republican strategy since day one of Obama’s presidency. Block the President at every turn, then blame him for not getting anything done. In fact, here’s Newt Gingrich openly admitting to it.

That’s why Republicans block jobs bills — so they can blame Obama for the economy still sucking. They’ve blocked budgets, resulting in a government shutdown that they then tried to blame on Obama. They’ve tried over and over again to block Obamacare, and complain that it’s a failure as they work their asses off to try to make it fail.

It’s kindergarten politics, and we need to vote these schmucks out in November. A bunch of white guys throwing temper tantrums and shouting NO! to everything just because they don’t like the president is no way to run a government, especially if we’re going to continue to pretend to be one of the greatest nations on earth.
