New clinical issues have again showed him that life might be brief and he wants to take advantage of what time he has left, while he overcome that first round of cancer.
"For $10,000 you could attend the luncheon. I had something that could transfer the needle on this thing."
So he contacted the pda.

The 32 grand represents "a big percentage" of that account, however it was something he believed he needed to-do.
I wish to tell Obama about the economic advantages of the transition away from oil."
Seems like a pretty fundamental message the President may have heard already from lots of resources. Is this truly the easiest method to acquire results? Will Scott actually speak directly to the POTUS?

Increasing the difficulty is the utilization of vast amounts of money invested to pollute the democratic process with enormous slur campaigns full of misinformation and outright lies. The truth scarcely gets heard."
