So the right-wing Bush-Cheney court that set the precedent of "You don't have to win the election if you can stack the Supreme Court," have now gone further and done the legal equivalent of telling the corporate establishment of the USA:

"Hey guys, we're bent over and greased up, cuz we're your bitches* and you have a green light to do the same to the American Public, only now you can do it without lubrication."

That green light?

Removing ANY limits to corporations pumping as much money as they want into a political campaign (remember -- those contributions are tax-deductible, i.e., WE get to pay for the royal screwing) And, oh, yeah, they can use DBA and need not reveal which corporation and which human beings are behind the putsch.

So Blackwater and Halliburton and AIG and Goldman-Sachs can make  TV movies that tell us how Senator Dipshit actually walked on water as a child to save three nuns and a puppy from drowning, and even today, he farts unicorns.

Or go even farther into such a bizarre sci-fi surreal fantasy, it would make the late Williams Burroughs seem like Bill Moyers, telling us that the particular bought-and-paid for sleazoid running for office is  REALLY SINCERELY HONESTLY concerned with the welfare of the American public.  (Uhh, I should clarify that -- doing GOOD things for the people's welfare, not paying close attention to it just to figure out what's left to steal.)

And as the TV shows the black-robed Star Chamber criminals sitting for a photo with the monster-in-chief John Roberts laughing and schmoozing, I think once again of my father's IWW and black-listed pals' overly simple (but probably effective) solution: "Hang 'em from the lampposts."

(Interesting how the  traditional ways still make lots and lots of sense.)

Does this mean I'm guilty of contempt of court? You'd better goddamn believe it.


*Remember - I NEVER -- nor should you,  insult whores by using that word for Supreme Court justices, because  - I know, I say this over and over, but it still needs to be said -- real whores do NOT sell anything that doesn't belong to them.
Now we notice (if we haven't before) that the Supremes have joined the ranks of politicians, bankers, businessmen, and other thieves and protection-racket mobsters in the great Free-Market Flea-Market of marked down-virtues. Except THEIR goons carry guns and badges.

ADDENDUM: someone pointed out the bizarre concept that, in a constitutionally legal definition, a corporation IS a person, but someone accused of terrorism or being an enemy combatant, is NOT a person. Curiouser and curiouser.
