Jamie Dimon, This is Your Chance for Payback

LA Times:

Overturning a century-old restriction, the Supreme Court ruled Thursday that corporations may spend as much as they want to sway voters in federal elections.

In a landmark 5-4 decision, the court's conservative bloc said that corporations have the same right to free speech as individuals and, for that reason, the government may not stop corporations from spending to help their favored candidates.

The ruling -- which will presumably apply as well to labor unions and other organizations -- is likely to have an impact on this year's congressional elections. Many political analysts and election-law experts predict that millions of extra dollars will flood into this fall's contests, much of it benefiting Republican candidates.

While Republicans praised the decision as a victory for wide-open political speech, Democrats slammed it as a win for big money.

Whatever, Republicans are just as broke as everyone else. However, corporations know who their sugar daddies are and it isn't the asshat trying to tax their ass in fees. Go get that motherfucker, Jamie Dimon.

(in case you missed it, the banks might be a tad ticked right now. Payback anyone?)

Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.

Same freedom of speech? Wonderful, no problem but...

Back in the old days, corporations had to have a set date of expiration (just like people). In other words, they had to have a set date when they were going to die. That's part of our problem. We (people) can't live forever. Corporations in their current form can go on and on and on. I say give them as much free speech protection as you like - just be sure that they have to have a date of expiration too. Otherwise, too much power in the hands of too few.
