Brendan Eich was struck by OkCupid's arrow, but that doesn't mean he's in love.

To delete Firefox from your computer, go to Remove Files, Click on Mozilla Firefox, click on Remove Application. I love Firefox but I love freedom of speech more. Bye Mozilla. Hello Godzilla. May 16th. Looks like it will be good.

Here is a link to other Mozilla products I will remove from my computers. If companies wish to force employees to resign because gays are freaky, then they will lose my business. Gays are an offense to God and Nature. Pray for them and shame them!

He had his freedom of speech. I dont think it works the way you think it works. He is free to give money (speech) to what/where ever he wants. Just like everyone is allowed to boycot, shame, and use their free speech to voice their opinions about his speech. He is free to respond to those criticisms just like you are too. And mozilla being the entity they are, are allowed to move in their best interest.

I agree. The LA Times should publish the names of all women who have had abortions in Orange County in the past 10 years too.

The main difference is that the corporations in question here actually were advancing speech, not injecting money into politics. The two things are not directly correlative.

The major fallacy of Citizens United is that the injection of capital into political campaigns qualifies as speech. It was a poorly reasoned decision, and deserves to be overturned.

The division grows wider and the chasm deeper in America. We will either stay together as nation by pure force or end up breaking up into smaller countries.

making public people's medical records is not free speech. Infact, there are some very hefty HIPAA laws against it.

If we do away with the religious tax exemption the commotion will quieten down significantly

More than whispers are that lots of leading, public, anti choice women have gone for abortions over the years. The women's community jokes about the abortion provider sitting down with them to discuss the procedure and starting with, "So, how long have you been pro choice?"

But the women's community decided - apart from privacy laws - not to squeal on these right wing hypocrites.

WRONG !

Let's say 2 business partners form a lawn-maintenance corporation with each partner owning 50% of the stock.

Let's say a local politician wants to place a special tax on lawn-maintenance businesses. By your illogic, the owners of said corporation would have no right to put up as many political signs as they want, urging the local citizenry to vote against this particular politician. That is an abridgment of their First Amendment Rights.

One cannot advertise one's views widely, be it commercial speech, political speech, religious speech, or any other kind of speech, without hiring someone to help spread the word.

MONEY is a necessary facilitator to the ideal of Freedom Of Speech. The problem is we don't have ENOUGH money and ENOUGH Freedom Of Speech in the U.S. We need MORE Freedom of Speech, not LESS Freedom Of Speech.

And as right on cue, those most opposed to Freedom Of Speech, such as the Stalinists Senator Schumer of New York, and Senator Harry [G]Reid of Nevada, decried the SCOTUS ruling giving people MORE Freedom Of Speech. Typical Stalinists. Uncle Joe is proudly smiling up from Hell at them and the Democratic Party ( the biggest misnomer in history).

Justice Thomas was right.
Yeah, way, way, far right.
He actually does have something to say on occasion,
that is, when he's not busy looking at pornography.

"Thomas' ex-girlfriend Lillian McEwen has decided to "break her silence" about their five-year-long relationship in a Washington Post interview. Turns out, Justice Thomas was "OBSESSED WITH PORN" and was "partial to women with large breasts."

All you folk complaining that Mozilla and Eichs parted ways after the uproar, aren't you the same ones who have been arguing that businesses should be allowed to do as they please based on their beliefs? His donation was a slap in the face of the principles of the foundation which owns the company. It came back to haunt them that they let him get away with it when he did it.

As long as the money just went to Democrats from Unions, and Uncle George everything was fine. Let the Republicans have some money, and it is unconstitutional. You people are insane. I agree without money you can't win. That just means Democrats need the brothers that are financing them this time.

Or, we start publicly funding elections, at take all that money our of the picture.

And really, whose money is more likely do do something to help you? A union who should (hopefully) represent workers, or corporations, who do not?

It should all be off the table.
