    I don’t get the reference. Which Wilson? What did he do?

    Woodrow Wilson (D) was the president during World War I. He appeared on the Series 1934 $100,000 bill, which was only used for transactions between Federal Reserve Banks.

    Signe, it would have been MUCH more appropriate to have used the $10,000 bill, which depicts SCOTUS Chief Justice Salmon P. Chase, who served 1864-1873.
    Besides, the $10,000 bill was available for general circulation until 1969.

    @If my words offend you - you don't have the open mind you claim to have Why should they be happy? All that’s left now for the Supremes to do to ensure the GOPs future electoral domination is to let corporations vote. Then the GOP won’t have to be coy about prostrating themselves before their wealthy overlords.

    It’s a great thing that the Supreme Court finally found a terrible, abusive law unconstitutional. That law kept us all from being truly free Americans. We were all slaves before the ruling, when we couldn’t give unlimited amounts of baksheesh to elected officials (and candidates for election).

    That.. will be next. A corporation will be allowed to vote and represent as many votes as they have employees.

    In their 1952 book, The Space Merchants
    Fred Pohl and Cyril Kornbluth imagined a US where the members of Congress were delegates from Corporations.

    .

    Here is an excerpt from the article in Wikipedia:


    In a vastly overpopulated world, businesses have taken the place of governments and now hold all political power. States exist merely to ensure the survival of huge trans-national corporations. Advertising has become hugely aggressive and by far the best-paid profession. Through advertising, the public is constantly deluded into thinking that the quality of life is improved by all the products placed on the market. Some of the products contain addictive substances designed to make consumers dependent on them. However, the most basic elements of life are incredibly scarce, including water and fuel. Personal transportation may be pedal powered, with rickshaw rides being considered a luxury.

    This will allow Warren Buffet to by many Democrat Senate and Congressional Senate Seats in 2014 as well as The Democrat Nominee for President in 2016. He will be able to give them $Billion a piece

    I would like to see all business and politicians to wear uniforms emblazoned with all of their financial supporters names or logos. Just like race car drivers do.

    I believe I saw a solicitation from an citizen political interest group, intending to send the Supremes new robes emblazoned with sponsor patches.

    Hillary and Reid mus be very, very happy.

    As usual, an Ima-style posting completely irrelevant to the toon, and the other conservative postings are 180 degrees out of phase, echoing the exact opposite of the ramifications of the ruling. The useful fools who voted in the President who installed the SCOTUS conservative majority are unabashedly blaming Democrats as the threat to Democracy.

    It’s against the very fundamentals to allow people to ‘buy’ one pillar of the democratic trinity (Legislative, Executive and Judiciary) without permitting people to buy the two others.

    But you made Ima happy. You took the bait.
