As the billionaires set up their banners Leave no billionaire behind and Billionaires for Bush: Government of, by, and for the corporations local Democratic organizer Mary Toomey stood by Yorks Colonial Courthouse giggling. I just hope people realize that they arent really for Bush, Toomey said.
Beth Bacas, a New York City resident and former Yorker who goes by the billionaire name of Kiki Baxx, stood along Market Street Saturday in a black velvet cocktail dress, long black gloves and her hair and ears decorated with rhinestone jewelry.
She and four other billionaires waved to traffic along Market Street and chanted, Support the super-wealthy, vote for Bush.
The group also planned to auction off the Colonial Courthouse a symbol of the first Continental Congress.
Were buying it because we already own todays Congress, she said.
They roamed to various stops in York all day, encouraging people through their sometimes-missed political satire to support Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry.
Billionaires for Bush has stopped in York before, during Bushs July rally at the York Expo Center.
The grassroots political group has been mentioned by more than 150 newspapers, television and radio stations and has dogged Bush throughout the country on campaign stops, and includes more than 85 chapters throughout the country.
But sometimes, the satire is lost on both parties Bush supporters honk their horns and Kerry backers heckle them.
York resident Dimitrios Skouras, whose 10-year-old daughter dubbed him Ivan DeLottery, wore a top hat, jacket and tie.
He met up with the billionaires while protesting Bushs York visit and was impressed with their style.
I want my children to grow up free, the Greek immigrant said. I dont want them to be under Bush or any other fascist dictator.
Since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, the resident alien said, hes worried more about deportation.
Though he said hes an entrepreneur who has contributed to the economy, he said immigrants are no longer welcome in the United States.
Other billionaires, when assuming their angry liberal personalities, said they had to work for the man in order to have health-care coverage or hold part-time jobs that are just short of full-time hours keeping them from qualifying for benefits.
The billionaires will be joined by others from Philadelphia and State College Tuesday at the State Capitol in Harrisburg for a debate with State Rep. Mark Cohen, D-Philadelphia.
First, they had to take care of the courthouse auction.
The bidding started at $1.3 million, which the billionaires said is the average tax credit under the Bush Administration for those making more than $200 million a year.
WorldCom had just put in a bid for $87 billion, when one of the billionaires said he took a call from President Bush telling them that the Colonial Courthouse had already been sold to Halliburton, the former employer of Vice President Dick Cheney and the recipient of no-bid contracts to rebuild Iraq.
And so the sale was off.

I saw those people yesterday, and immediately deduced that they were Kerry supporters. I have since come up with a theatric theme for supporters of the President to try, if they are so inclined, which will include dressing as Soros and Hollywood types, such as Babs Streisand, and the big fat idiot: Kooks for Kerry.
As York County is so Republican that the 'Rats would consider 35% of the vote going for Kerry to be a victory, Kooks for Kerry would probably be a winner here.
Who the heck are the Bush billionaires? All the billionaires I've heard express an opinion on the matter are going for Kerry, including George Soros and Osama Bin Laden.
OCTOBER SURPRISE AD:
Political Operative Veterans Against George W. Bush (POVAGWB) Meeting: Mr. Kerry Reports (Serious Parody):
When I attended a POVAGWB meeting recently, I heard testimony from Campaign Operative Veterans that they had:
Cut off the locks and bashed in doors of regional Republic Campaign Headquarters
Raped and defiled various Republican office machines
Randomly shot weapons into Republican Campaign Headquarters
Defiled US Mail delivered to the Republican Regional Campaign Headquarters
Razed Republican campaign offices across the country in the manner reminiscent of Genghis Kahn
Had bleeding gums reminiscent of gingivitis
Destroyed foodstuffs found in campaign office refrigerators
Kicked their dogs
Urinated on Republican campaign signs
Used large union thugs to destroy GWB campaign signs held by three-year-old girls
Told story after story of falsely accusing Republicans the gruesome act of denying minorities the right to vote
Committed other violent campaign atrocities under the tacit control and support of the DNC commanders
Mr. Kerry denies being at a DNC meeting where these tactics were discussed and planned, but witness say he was there. Others are accusing him of meeting with Carl Rove in an attempt to end the campaign early and declare GWB the winner.
Paid for by a Swift-Thinking Freeper in America
Isn't that Stipe thing a freak?
Election 2004: Adults versus Freaks?
Mainstream American tries to distance themselves from that dirty-hippy image.
They are helping Bush. Notice that Bush supporters honked and sKerry's heckled? Good job, troops.
Apparently, every American household that pays Federal income taxes on income greater than $200,000 per year but not John Kerry and Teresa Heinz who have never paid a single dollar in Federal wealth taxes on the $550 miilion fortune that neither one of them earned but which they now enjoy.
My neighbor has a "billionaires for Bush" bumper sticker, which I cringe at every time I see it, thinking of Te-ray-sa and her many mansions for John F. and George Soros and his billions to defeat "Nazi" Bush. I had really thought that with the fall of communism, the whole class warfare, "business is evil" thing of the left had gone out the window, but apparently it's back.
"I had really thought that with the fall of communism, the whole class warfare, "business is evil" thing of the left had gone out the window, but apparently it's back."
It never really was gone from the leftist mentality.
CLinton, for all his faults, did temper the anti-business rhetoric a bit.
At $200,000 per year it would take that super rich coulple 5,000 years to accumulate $ 1 billion.
Meanwhile, Teresa's wealth has grown by approximately half a billion dollars in the past 9 years, largely tax-free.
