Corporate-owned Supreme Court

It's getting worse. Since the Republicans on the Supreme Court decided that corporations are "people" and money is "speech," they've lost any semblance of respect for precedence and the rule of law.

Corporate CEOs can now spend your money to buy politicians to advance their own interests - and do it all anonymously, keeping it a secret from their shareholders and their customers alike.

Billionaires are currently trying to buy the presidency for Mitt Romney, too. But we let them do this. They can't do any of it without our full cooperation. If we're stupid enough to let this happen, what does that say about us?

Perhaps SCOTUS should just cut the pretense and wear corporate patches on their robes like the NASCAR rednecks. :)
