Supremely Corrupt Corporate Court Jesters Strike Another Blow to Democracy
Surprise, surprise, the Supremely Corrupt Corporate Court Jesters voted 5-4 to overrule the state of Montana’s ban on corporate political spending.
Supreme Court Upholds Citizens United; Tightens Corporate Stranglehold on Campaign FinanceHa! Now that’s some serious tragic comedy.
In a 5-4 decision, the US Supreme Court has struck down (pdf) Montana’s 100 year old law that banned direct corporate political campaign spending in state and local elections. The court reversed a lower court ruling, but did so without allowing full briefing or argument in the case.

When you are a Supreme Court “judge” these days, you become so embedded in a corrupt culture, groupthink takes over and blatant corruption looks like normal activity to you.

History will remember them as tyrants.
Karma baby, it’s comin’ for ya, it’s blowin’ in the wind…
