We Are All Truly Fucked Now!

"Government cannot restrict corporations from spending money to influence political campaigns, the Supreme Court ruled Thursday in an opinion that immediately reverberated across the political landscape and drew strong criticism from the White House.

The decision upends the political battlefield in time for November's high-stakes congressional elections. It also is likely to affect state contests. Twenty-two states prohibit corporate spending in state candidate elections, and two more, New York and Alabama, impose limits on such spending."

-USA Today

The court ruled some time ago that corporations are "super citizens" . That means they have more rights than we as individuals have in this country. You think we have crooked politicians now, just wait a couple of more election cycles.


UPDATE: There may be something that can be done about this:

I know I was going to leave politics alone for a while. But every time I do they keep pulling me back in.
