It's a Rich Man's World

In case any of you readers care about first amendment rights, you'll be glad to know that corporations are no longer sadly excluded from the ability to buy/ spend as much money as they want to on elections. Thanks Supreme Court! As always, Steven Colbert says it best.

Actually, snarkiness aside, I really don't mind if corporations and unions can donate money just like people. After all, if I am allowed to donate $4600 to a campaign, why shouldn't Microsoft, Goldman Sachs and Kink.com? Oh wait, you say that actually they wont face the same spending limitations as people? That corporations will be allowed to donate unlimited amounts of money? Uh, that seems wack.
