Another Nail in the Coffin.

Justice John Paul Stevens underlined the absurdity of the ridiculous Supreme Court decision to pretty much throw out campaign finance reform laws in good old 25-words-or-less-fashion in his angry dissent:
"While American democracy is imperfect, few outside the majority of this Court would have thought its flaws included a dearth of corporate money in politics."
The steady dissolution of government by and for the people continues.

  1. The problem started with that legal fiction of corporations as people. It probably made sense at the time - made it easier for a company to own property or some such. But then when they started acting like the fake people had the same rights as the real people, things went to hell.

    Then again, they took the opposite position in the colonies in the Battlestar Galactica universe, and that didn't turn out so well, either....

    (How's that for some absurd comparisons?)
