    So the Supreme Court once again shits on citizens and says we dont care if money corrupts politicians...Give 'em more money...All the money you want. The law the overturned was called the Corrupt Practices Act of 1912. Because even in 1912 people knew that more money equals more problems like Biggie Smalls so eloquently put it. The AG disagreed

    Supreme Court Campaign Finance Ruling Shows Reformers' Weak Position - Alex Roarty - NationalJournal.com

    Let's hear it for states right...right? But I'm like...What corruption?

    So he Steve Bullock the AG did another interview:
    Montana Defies Supreme Court's Citizens United Case : NPR

    Thats from 1912 and they knew better. Dont tell me some crap about Corporations right to speech...Right now they have more money, more rights than average citizens. I'll ask again for those on the right and the left. How is making unlimited campaign donations from corporations a good thing for democracy?

    The Dem's would be just fine with it if cpacs was going more to them.
    They had the unions for years and it always outsourced the Repubs.

    Anthony "Tweet Your Libido" Weiner.
    Jessee Jackson Junior (D-IL) has been on medical leave from his duties as Congressman from Illinois since around June 10th, last. The medical condition he's allegedly suffering from has been called 'Extreme fatigue'. Whether the fatigue has been caused by the extreme number of nightly exercise workouts on the waterbed with his numerous admiring female supporters, like father, like son, or caused by the myriad number of hours spent answering the FBI's questions on how much money he offered then Governor Rod Blagojevich (D-IL) for former Senator Barack Obama's (D-IL) vacant Senate Seat hasn't been determined.

    The Supreme Court struck down a Montana law.

    So much for states rights, right boys?
