    Do the fat cats pay you for this kind of stuff, Henry? Because they shell out a lot of money for legislation on their behalf and they spend millions for ads promoting their interests. You’re really a fool if you’re drawing all this unpatriotic nonsense for free.

    “Money is Speech” and “Corporations are People”. Say this to Washington, Madison, Jefferson, Franklin and you’d be laughed out of the room!

    Payne obviously recognises the genius of our Supreme Court, a genius that just worked as the Founders intended, overturning blatantly unconstitutional laws that limit how much the rich can give to challengers. (The campaign finance laws apparently didn’t limit how much the rich could give to incumbents.)

    It is you that would be laughed out of the room. The Founding Fathers would be absolutely appalled at the limits on free speech, owning firearms, etc.

    I think Washington, Madison, Jefferson and Franklin would beat the tar out of you!

    Correction: Not beat the tar out of you, Morty, but of whoever says such a thing!

    Same as it ever was…. “As was the aristocratic custom of the day, neither Adams nor Jefferson personally campaigned. Rather, the campaign battles were waged between the political party newspapers, a propaganda device rooted in the anti-British pamphlets of the American Revolution. These publications mercilessly criticized their respective opposing candidates.”

    Hmm, if you have to buy a box of cereal to get the “free” prize inside, or buy a car to get a “free” set of steak knives, is the prize “free”? Same for speaking out if you have to pay the piper to match the squealing coming from the rats at the top of the trash pile.

    Thank goodness the Supremes saved the 1st amendment for rich people anyhow…
    Poor people, you get as much 1st amendment as you can afford…

    Sure they are and out the other side of their mouths the deny 1st amendment rights to anyone who won’t renounce their religion and worship at the altar of the party line.

    If corporations are people, shouldn’t the CEO’s be criminally liable for the corporation’s harmful actions? Name one CEO who has gone to jail for killing or harming a customer.

    TJ, the top 13 political donors are overwhelmingly leftists:
    Do the unions and other far-left fatcats pay you for this kind of stuff, TJ? Because they shell out a lot of money for legislation on their behalf and they spend millions for ads promoting their interests.
    Oh wait – they’re leftists, so it’s okay by definition.

    A bit of history, for any who may be interested.

    In the 1860’s, Friedrich Krupp, who owned the iron works in Essen, Prussia, wrote a handbook for his workers. He did so because he feared all the socialist talk and activities stemming from the revolutions & turmoil of 1848. In this book, he spelled out what he expected: Punctuality, hard work, devotion, bring ideas to him, and never utter the words “union” “socialism” and (worst of all!) “communism”; grounds for immediate dismissal! But, he also wrote what his workers could expect from adherence to these rules; pensions, health insurance, job security, and he built parks, libraries, and bankrolled festive activities for his workers and families! And, old Fred was a cantankerous curmudgeon!

    Prussian Chancellor Otto von Bismarck was as conservative as they come. He disliked the Liberalism of England, France and the brash Americans. But, in 1870, after he goaded all the smaller Germanic states into the new, modern Germany, he himself wrote the Constitution, modeled closely after the U.S. Constitution. He also read F. Krupp’s handbook, over and over, and instituted his social legislation based on that book!

    These were two hardened conservatives who did right by their people.
