The campaign finance reform decision was only the hordirves, the California decision is the entre'e. It should be noted that both of Obama's Supreme Court nominees agreed whole heartily with Justice Scalia and this is no surprise. Both were sold to the public as liberals and moderates but Sonya Sotomayor during her judicial career sided with corporate interests over eighty percent of the time in her rulings while Elena Kagan as Dean of Harvard law school hired Conservative professors in a policy of making that school's faculty politically fair and balanced.

President Obama himself mentioned the campaign finance decision in his state of the union address and advised Congress that they should immediately draft legislation to counter the Supreme Court's ruling. Of course that, as always, is his policy, to talk left as he veers to the right. The heads of the Fortune 500 now sit in White House offices crafting government policy. Obama had promised the public that he would change the way business was done in Washington and by gum, he's done it! He's kicked out the corporate lobbyists and invited in their employers to serve on his committees. Obama then gives these CEO's titles and invites them to dinner at the White House.

Obama is but the suede glove over the iron fist, it is money or should I more rightly say, free speech which now reigns supreme over all branches of government as the Supreme Court has declared itself an unelected star chamber where it alone decides all issues of legislation with phony, foisted, fractured, fallacious and fabricated principles of law.

Your rights as a citizen erode while corporate rights reign supreme. My father used to say, "The right to swing your arm ends at my nose," but with the Supreme Courts ruling yesterday that saying must now be modified. "The right of the corporation to swing its arm is only impeded by your nose's attempt to limit the corporation's free speech."

<blockquote>"California's argument would fare better if there was a longstanding tradition in this country of specially restricting children's access to depictions of violence, but there is none," Antonin Scalia<\blockquote>

I who am I? Born at the pinnacle of American prosperity to parents raised during the last great depression. I was the youngest child of the youngest children born almost between the generations and that in fact clouds and obscures who it is that (more...)
