How John Roberts Orchestrated Citizens United

There are 20 comments on the www.newyorker.com story from May 14, 2012, titled How John Roberts Orchestrated Citizens United . In it, www.newyorker.com reports that:

By having the case reargued, Roberts put the liberals in a box and transformed the decision's impact on political campaigns.

When Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission was first argued before the Supreme Court, on March 24, 2009, it seemed like a case of modest importance. The issue before the Justices was a narrow one. The McCain-Feingold campaign-finance law prohibited corporations from running television commercials for or against Presidential candidates for thirty days before primaries.

President Obama’s second term will be even more important than his first because he will be nominating replacements to the Supreme Court that will fix the mess that we now have with that token Minstrel show-buffoon Clarence Thomas, disgusting Scalia, Alito and Roberts.

Apologies.
I should have said
"Are corporations Mexicans?"
It's funnier, considering how many US companies now operate in Mexico...
Since 1982, Texas has executed 477 men and women, more than any other state. And there are more than 300 men and women in Texas awaiting execution now.
Although the number of executions of black inmates has declined, the number for Hispanic criminals has risen. In 2010 and 2011, more Hispanic criminals were executed than black criminals.

And you just naturally assume that this is a result of racism and not the fact that these criminals are guilty, right?

Now take a look at reality. Corporations have been executed and more white murders than black murderers are executed.
