Citizens United should be overturned. A bill was introduced to do that. Haven't heard what happened to it. Eventually it will be because corporations are not people. They are considered to be "like" people in a capacity known as a legal "entity." That was the basis for extending first amendment rights to corporations, but no good argument was made addressing the difference between a person and an entity.
The most effective means for killing Citizens United is to constantly and relentlessly ridicule the high courts lost integrity since they became owned wholly by the Koch brothers. The court is very sensitive to its integrity for without that no decision it makes can be relied on.
Our sacred institutions are crumbling. Corporate greed is taking over our beloved country and democracy to the point this country won't be fit to live in.
Per S.E. Cupp, there is no such thing as making too much money. Hey S.E. what do you think "corporate greed" means? When corporations use their power to game the system that is called "making too much money". When a business is smart and efficient and makes a great product that people prefer over the competition's product, that is called good business. Make all the money you can the honest way. Do you think the Koch brothers are honest? They are lying racist sacks of dung. Their Georgia Pacific plants pollute the waters and stream in Arkansas, they have caused high rates of cancers around their plants and with employees, they worked with Scott Walker to break the unions, they want no controls placed on their corrupt activities and they bought and paid for the Supreme Court decision for Citizens United. I hope every justice who voted for that decision feels the shame of it for the rest of their lives.

Somebody asked "why does Romney even want the job?" He seems so disdainful of anybody who is not in his class. First, he has no class. Second, he wants the job for the fun of it. He gets to fly around on Air Force One, people have to bow and kiss his ass, treat him like a king, and somebody else will be making all the decisions on his tab. When they screw up the country, he is the one who gets the credit, but hey he's still the prez and he gets to play with all the toys.
His wife said it first in that film about their stupid life that "when he plays with the children, he's just like one of them, he's big kid and she has to be the grown up in the room."
Everytime he is interviewed he's all smiles until the hard questions start coming and then he begins to get angry and squirmy in his seat. I swear, it's like watching a five year old answer questions although I thing that might be an insult to some five year olds.
He doesn't want the job to actually do any work. He's is going to leave that to his advisors. They will brief him, offer a course of action which he will accept because he is a stupid, stupid man and we will have another Bush presidency. All hat, no cattle. And since we are already 4 trillion in debt and the cat will be absent for all 4 years, the outcome will be 8 trillion in debt and we will be lucky if we aren't at war with Iran before we impeach him.
Of course, none of that is going to happen because he will never be president. He's a moron.

Great ad. It really lets people know that Romeny/Ryan are ONLY for the 1% and don't care about the rest of us.

I was just over on Current TV website, and saw posted, that in a most recent poll taken, Elizabeth Warren is now ahead of Scott Brown by 5 points, in the Massachusetts, Senate race, and she was trailing him by 8 points not long ago, or several months ago. What more proof do you need? Even though, it is not November, yet, all these signs, are encouraging! Very Incouraging! Indeed!

I think people are slowly waking up. I posted that I read an article written by David Shuster, for Current TV .com, in which he investigated and found out that Michelle Bachmann is in trouble in Minnesota, and has fallen back with Independants from a 4 point lead, to a 15 point defecit, in her district, in a most recent poll taken. There is a big possibility that she could lose her house seat in November, to the Democrat running against her. What more evidence do you need to spell out that, people could finally be waking up. We never thought that Bachmann could ever lose.

Gloria, I am not too worried. I work in northeastern Nevada right now, a.k.a Teabaggerville. Even in a place as bat sh!t crazy conservative as this, I have only seen two Robme bumper stickers. All the talk at the local bars is about fear of backlash from women after all the trans-vaginal ultrasound procedures Repugs tried to mandate. Still, we've got to get out and vote.
