If Unions are included in this then it will be fine.

California's situation proves that Union owned Democrats are the most destructive force American's face. They are truly America's "enemies within".

Sorry Dick.

Such hack strategies face a slim likelihood of garnering the two-thirds majority in Congress and ratification by at least 38 states required for amending the Constitution.


You should have hired a better lawyer than Elena Kagen to pimp the Citizens United Case in the 1st place. Maybe the gov would have won! LMAO!


The fact of the matter is the Jackasscrats are upset that their Union Corporations and Media Corporations now face an equal playing field. Something Jackasses hate.

Feinstein: Obama White House Behind National Security Leaks

July 24, 2012

Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Cali.) states that the national security leaks did indeed come from the White House.

I think the White House has to understand that some of this is coming from its ranks. I dont know specifically where, but I think they have to begin to understand that and do something about it, Feinstein said.

Durbin is singing to his choir. There is no way this can be changed. Most Americans saw how much of the Union money, that is their retirement, went to elect Democrats who can no longer do them any good, and they decided we should have the same chance for corporations to give to their people. It is the law of the land. It cannot be repealed, or altered. Durbin is just tryoing to scam his people for votes.

The Supreme Court is correct. Period.
Americans have to choose the right candidate, not the Supreme Court. We should all take a lesson from Chief Justice Roberts, who I have on good authority is a pretty decent guy, and his famous Obama care decision. Even if something stinks like crap, as Obamacare does, it's not the job of the Supreme Court to decide on the basis of merit. They have to stick to the constitution and the law. Period. People are responsible for voting out the bad and voting in the good. That's just the way it has to be. Period.

Where? Why just check how many jobs have been created/added to the IRS. Unemployment, real numbers, 30%, Country is in worst shape since the great depression.
Our Bill of right was shredded as was our Constitution. Education system is BROKE and produces Obot Zombies. Dyckhead Durbin is a punk just like the rest of the 'bots' who suckle on the BO wang. The country needs surgery to remove this mass tumor of cancer that is eating away at our freedom. VOTE BO OUT! BHO, um, um, um.!

The biggest hypocrites in the world are the whiny liberals, whining about the Citizens United ruling. They are just steamed that they can't control who gives campaign contributions. They have no problem with UNIONS having unlimited sway to donate 99% of all their union dues to democrat candidates but God forbid a legitimate corporation donate to anyone other than a democrat. That's all this is, all the spin and lies and misinformation they throw around is just that, LIES, SPIN AND MISINFORMATION. I doubt even one of them has even read the ruling. All it did was level the playing field, EVERYONE, anyone who wants to contribute to a campaign, in any way, is free to do so. Chuckie Schumer just loves a microphone in his face and a little TV time, he really doesn't give a hoot if what he's saying is true or even makes any sense.

LOL - Did you by any chance READ it? Or did you simply believe the lies that Obama told about it? For someone with a law degree, Obama is proving to be abysmally bad at actually understanding what some of these rulings actually say. Either is his pretty stupid or he's LYING AGAIN. Read it and make your own conclusion.

Durban has no clue about Government. He is elected by dead people, and multi voters. He gets the Illegal Alien vote, and the votes of those financially dependent on the Government. He couldn't be elected dog catcher in a ghost town if he had to run in a clean election.

Dork Durbin and his libtard pals are owned by Soros the SS collaborator. Al Capone would have put cement shoes on this azzwhipe if this was the 20's.

New laws would make that horrifically bad, anti-American decision moot. We have to control corporate spending on campaigns, in fact, ALL campaign spending. Our nation's one of the most corrupt democracies on earth.
