Corporate Persons Win Big

I'd like to write something pungent and/or helpful in light of today's Supreme Court endorsement of unlimited corporate money in American elections, but I don't have the heart.

Money, which has always talked, will now talk in the billions, and more than bullshit will be walking. The curse of even more interesting times. Good luck with that.

The only winners will be the companies that produce political attack ads. Business opportunity alert!

It is indeed a horrible activist ruling by the "conservative' majority. So much for the Chief Justice's deference to precedent that he espoused during confirmation. This decision is probably the worst since Dredd Scott and Bush v. Gore. The fiction of corporate person-hood has now been legitimized by fiat. I wrote a piece on the possible implications of the decision: if you or any of your readers are interested. What a shameful ruling.
