News to Bust a Blood Vessel Over

Once again the USSC makes up shit as it goes along, just as it did with gun control and with Citizens United.

This decision further legalizes wholesale corruption.

They're just a bunch of political hacks and have been since Jones v. Clinton.

The ruling came down just in time, as GOP candidates for president were busy in Las Vegas kissing the ass of aging aristocrat Adelson:

Adelson is of course not the only billionaire using his fortune to manipulate the US political system. Tim Phillips, president of Americans for Prosperity, the front group for the billionaire Koch brothers, attended the RJC meeting as a guest. The Kochs are expected to match or exceed the $100 million that Adelson gave in the last presidential campaign.

Billionaires are active on the Democratic side of the two-party system as well, including figures like George Soros, Jeffery Katzenberg, Tom Steyer and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. However, given the conventional wisdom that Hillary Clinton has the Democratic presidential nomination for the taking, there is not currently any public spectacle of Democratic presidential hopefuls begging for handouts from the super-rich.

Our system is totally fucked up.

The problem with old-fashioned bank robbers is they have no politicians in their pockets.
