    Very good point, CORPORATE ranches, HUGE corporations, are the norm on public land, not “mom and pop” operations. Also, Florida produces more beef off private land, where it rains and grass grows, than several western state’s public rangelands combined. Ah, yes, “personhood”.

    They’ve been grazing at the White House and Capitol Hill for generations. It was only a matter of time that they now got the Scotus under their control.

    Just send their government subsidy checks to their New York apartments.

    And you’ll hear nothing but crickets from the FOX News peanut gallery when the hypocrisy is exposed.

    They had non-stop coverage of the Bundy Debacle… until he opened his big mouth. Then… nothing. And they cut off the first guest who mentioned it.

    Some time ago, Denzel Ferguson wrote “Sacred Cows at the Public Trough”, about public land grazing, and how the range was being destroyed, while the public was getting ripped off. “Citizens United”, and other decisions aiding the top rung of our ladder to power, have made SCOTUS somewhat an embarrassment. (of riches to the wealthy)

    Rest assured that whichever way the wind blows, and whatever tides we may drive, the wealthy and the powerful will find a way to set their sails and angle their keels to take full advantage of it. Whatever force one might bring to bear in righting wrongs and wringing justice from the bar-rag of legalisms will be put to good use in an ironic turn of events that harms most those who intended the most good.
    If only there was some way to limit the power of government so that they couldn’t use it as a tool in their efforts until they started getting us to elect constitutional lawyers to office who could find ways around it while promising us hope, change, justice and mercy for ever and ever, amen.

    The only thing that is going to save the Middle Class is the Middle Class. We are the 99%—- that means we have the votes to elect people who will actually represent middle class workers and provide a safety net for those who are trying to get into the middle class.We all need to know who is supporting the candidates. That is who they will be working for. They have no choice if they want to stay in office. You have to do the bidding of whoever is paying your way, just the same as we all do in our jobs. So, before going to vote, look it up on the internet. Open Secrets is a good site, but there are plenty.

    If the candidate is getting their money from small donors or from unions, they are going to be working for middle class working people. If their donations are from corporations or from 1%ers, that’s who their votes are going to be working for. They are not going to go against them and do anything to help the middle class.

    It would be political suicide.

    Did Teddy Roosevelt have any descendants? We need a new one.

    One group that has barely been seen involved in big money campaigns are churches. There has not been any known case of pastors using church money to donate to political campaigns. My guess is that government lacks the power to do anything to a church, so it is not worth it for churches to get involved in politics. Since we have separation of church and state, maybe separation of economy and state, as well as separation of school and state could discourage big business, big labor and big teacher’s unions from shoveling money toward campaign contributions. Are there not more fruitful activities they could put their money towards?

    Ideally, it would be spiffy. The hard part is getting John Q Public to turn off “Dancing With The Stars” or whatever reality jerk off television is popular and pay attention. The worst part is politician KNOW how stupid “the people” are. Look at the campaign commercials; “Candidate X is for the children”, really? So candidate “y” hates children? The ads cater to incite the most ignorant and intellectually vacant.
    .
    Look at how some issues are handled:
    .
    Abortion-Does anyone really believe that Roe vs. Wade will be overturned? That any regulation restricting it won’t be shot down in minutes by the Supreme Court? Every election like clockwork Democrats scare women and Republicans demonize Democrats for supporting it.
    .
    Gay marriage- Jesus was the original fan of keeping church and state separate and yet because there is one or 2 bible passages that can be interpreted as being against gay marriage there should be a law? Really?
    .
    Heck look at the posters here: One one side we have “FAUX NEWS SQUAK FAUX NEWS” and on the other side “OBAMA IS A SOCIALIST” (if he is, he is as bad a socialist as he is president).
    .
    There (obviously) are legitimate differences between the right and left side of the political spectrum, but how to debate these issues honestly and with civility?

    As the wolves argue which end of the sheep to eat first, the sheep are busily arguing over which side of the life boat needs to be stabbed.
    And thus perfect harmony and balance is maintained.
