    “Of the people, by …
    “Of the people, by the corporations, and for the corporations.”

    The new Supreme Court decision will allow a corporation to run false attack ads against anyone they wish. That means they can now EXTORT every politician in the U.S. to do whatever they want for profit.
    If you think you’re getting screwed by health insurance companies, Wall Street, and credit card companies now — just wait. All consumer protection will be the first to go.

    We haven’t seen anything yet.

    Because the N.Y. …
    Because the N.Y. Times or conservative newspapers run an editorial is irrelevant. They DON’T run ATTACK ADS on TV.

    Any corporation can now tell legislators they’ll be the target of relentless attack ads if they vote AGAINST corporate wishes

    Credit card & insurance companies, banks & Wall Street can now dictate to legislators & EXTORT any politician in America. If they object, they’re on the HIT LIST. They dont even need to do it, just threaten.

    Corporatocracy USA!!!
    It’s scary!

    The National Guard …
    The National Guard or some other part of the military would be called out to eliminate or jail the terrorists.
    Yep, they would be called terrorists and be subject to the new anti-terrorist laws. The controlled Corporate media would report what the rulers want them to report. That is what would happen.

    Let us cosider the effects of anti anxiety drugs. A larg part or the US population is drugged into apathy. For the rest there are Sports, Celebs, Porn, Promiscuity, TV, and looking for work.

    @aleisterc2003 I …
    @aleisterc2003 I think the conservative justices on the court knew exactly what they were doing. The court hand selected this case out of thousands of potential cases that petitioned.

    Citizens United sued the federal elections committee because it argued that their anti-Hillary “movie” wasn’t an ad. The court, at least the majority, decided to disregard this and make a broader ruling reversing100 years of precedent in a striking act of judicial activism.

    trans7trip, exactly, and the only way the spell ever has or ever will be broken is when an individual(s) wakes us, stands up, and becomes what a human should be in the face of otherwise certain doom. “Never think that a radically committed individual cannot change the world. It is the only thing that ever has or ever will.” SL informed by Margaret Mead.
