How appropriate, they're all carrying brooms. You should all hop back on them and ride away. Free speech is a God given right whether you like it or not. You will never, and I mean NEVER get 3/4 of the states to pass an amendment like that. There are still too many Americans that believe in freedom.

American's love freedom? That's why they support th right of corporations to bribe your elected officials........

We Americans love the freedom to get ripped off by monopolist's who buy governemtn influence to manipulate or stifle market competition?

The American people love the freedom to pay higher prices to economic elites for unsafe, shoddy, or even fraudulent products, all made possible by bribes to prevent regulation and enforcement of the law against these powerful interests?

American's love the freedom to be taxed and laid off by these corporations when they screw up and need bailouts, or just don't want to honor outstanding obligations to workers, all made possible with bribes to our politicians to sell out Americans, for a quick profit?

America, where we just love the best government now "legal" corporate bribes can buy?

#8 Aug 11, 2010 and democrats by and large are just zealots for the religion of liberalism. This George Soro funded group gives marching orders to the flock and they go blindly out to protest. Blissful ignorance.

George Soros has this amazing agenda of going around state by state and doling out money to whatever cause,new law, or politician that meets his agenda ... George Soros has no form of corporate set up in regards to his assets ?

Well of course - corporations are people too. Afterall the people get special tax advantages and liability exclusions. Sure. Why not also let corporations vote? Their voice should be heard in the voting booth - literally.

So funny to read the hateful rightwing spam on this site. Did they forget their "grassroots" Fox-driven Teabagging party and their racist signs and rather laughable platform? But typical of old Pasadena (I mean old!) and the Orange Grove corridor of where the black-man runs deep. Really quite amusing. The Southern strategy in full effect.

I challenge any baggers to tell me how tax cuts pay for themselves. LOL!

Oh, we get it allright. The Republicians ran this country off a cliff under Bush 1, and "W", and you expect America to hand you the keys again? Been there done that.

Hm...maybe we should focus on the real problem of influence...GOV. UNIONS

Seems as if these poor sheep have bee misled as to what signs to make for their protest. They should have focused their rage on the real problem of influence peddling and vote purchasing...The Government Unions!!

Hey lets look at the vote today for the Full Employment for Government Union Hacks Act of 2010!!

Idiot liberals!

This 'move-on' protest is a joke on so many levels. First multi-billionaire George Soros who bankrolls 'move-on' makes his billions manipulating currencies, markets, energy futures, etc. He is the controller behind the scenes using his limitless resources to undermine the American dollar and economy through his leftist stooges. The dimwit protesters have no clue they are being used by the biggest corporate crook and thief in world history.

They bleat about those evil corporations, many of which are fleeing Cali, ranked dead last of all 50 States for business and job growth. Yeah, those same evil corporations that used to provide jobs and tax bases for California now do so for other States.

Nothing though about the unions overwhelming influence, eg. UAW now owning a big chunk of GM at the expense of the legal rights of bond holders. Union members and government workers getting a pass on the 40% tax on 'cadillac' medical plans while the non-union workers pay. Yes, getting out of paying a tax because you belong to a friggin UNION!!! This negotiated by Dear Leader himself and Andy Stern of SEIU and ACORN!

Oh, and the health care fuster cluck of payoffs to special interests (AARP, PHARMA, AMA, et al), union payoffs, racial preferences, etc. which will redistribute wealth, diminish health care, increase costs and further burden business and the economy.

But the best part is protesting to Adam Schiff, the most reliable leftist Pelosibot in the House.

I wish I could have been there with my permanent black marker to write 'moron' on all their Obama bumper stickers.
