The banksters own the "ALL" of the Republicans and have bought off enough Democrats to get their legislation passed. WE need to get rid of all the Republican and DINO-soars like Liebermann. The number one thing the next Congress needs to do is reinstate Glass Steagall. Ask your Representative and Senate candidates it they surrort reinstating Glass Steagall. If they say no, then you know they are in the pockets of the banksters, no matter which party they are a member of.

The American Revolution was fought to end corporate rule. If the corporations are put in charge again it means our entire history was for naught.

Seriously, if money is speech and corporations are people, then why can't corporations pay (speak to) judges or do they?

The same gang that told us corporations have all the rights of people are now bringing a suit before the Supreme Court that would limit the rights of share holders.

You don't get it. Corporations are both people, but not regular people. They are elite people who never have to pay taxes or die. Shareholders are regular people. Regular people have to pay taxes and die.

It's that simple.

If the Republicans get in they will have the force of law behind them because the Republicans will make what ever they want legal for them to do.

You bet your sweet assets that the Justice Kennedy family has socked away several million dollars from corporate America for that Citizens United ruling. Everything is for sale in our culture and Supreme Court judges don't come cheap.

Such filth.

How is that a bad thing? That's where we differ. We don't want a nanny state. We like paternalistic privitization. We don't want rights. We want priviliges. You liberals want laws to enforce rights, freedom. You don't understand that the laws themselves are the problem, unless they are in scripture, like the Book of Mormon.

Well, isn't that what free market capitalism is all about? Why all the fuss? I'm not surprised that there isn't much outrage. After all, this is America. Everything's for sale, at the right price.

You dummycrats are so idealistice, naive. Get real!

What do you suppose the Grand Canyon would be worth to some Chinese billionaire? Or Mount Rushmore? Those are valuable properties.
We could get a bundle for the Veterans Administration, all the hospitals and doctors.$100 billion?

Naturally, there would be a cut of couple million dollars apiece for all the Congress people who facilitate the sale.

Greasy palms keep the system working.

Obama embraces Super PACs he once decried

by Philip Klein
Senior Editorial Writer


In his recent State of the Union Address, President Obama decried the "the corrosive influence of money in politics," but today his campaign announced it was fully embracing so-called "super PACs" as part of his reelection effort.


The decision echoed Obama's reversal during the 2008 campaign to abandon the public financing system he once supported in order to gain a political advantage. It also runs counter to the entire last-ditch election strategy of Democrats in 2010. At an October 2010 rally, Obama blasted undisclosed contributions to such groups. "(T)hatís not just a threat to Democrats, thatís a threat to our democracy," he declared.

Democrats on the Hill have also pushed the issue of "Super PACs," with Schumer holding a press conference on it just last week to say, "It doesn't pass the smell test to say some of these groups aren't coordinated." Schumer said the Senate would hold Rules committee hearings on the PACs this month. We'll see what happens now.


What Filth!
