    Is a supper pac some instant meal or is it a group of diners lobbying for lower menu prices?

    and the issue is deeming it theft and Centinel is correct in calling unconstitutional spending theft. Its unconstitutional and while I understand that a dishonest and corrupt FDR USSC ignored the applicable precedent, I am still entitled-as a free american-to call crap crap
    What you are doing, clearly, is ignoring precedent. Nothing wrong with disagreeing, but the way our system works, the SC is the final arbiter. I haven't heard any better suggestions from the Right.

    I am not ignoring it-I am saying it was dishonest and since the New Deal was based on raping over a century of precedent why should I worship its dishonesty?

    Romney has four or five homes. Do you know in which state he resides for tax purposes?

    No reason you should worship it. But it is the law of the land and it is constitutional as the Supreme Court is the arbiter of what is or is not constitutional.

    Of course the Republicans sell their votes to the rich on the promise that they will make them richer.

    he still pays property taxes on all of them. WIki claims he has residences in Belmont (Boston) and California as well as a summer home in NH During the NH primary the press constantly mentioned this summer home. I suspect if that was his residence it would have been mentioned. Both Kalifornia and Mass. have high income tax rates

    wrong, since I am rich I can speak to that rather than have someone else pretend. I make myself richer, I vote GOP to stay out of my way and not take too much of what I make

    I remember when I was a young lawyer trying my first case in front of a federal judge. there was a side bar where the judge ruled on some evidence. I said Judge, I apologize but I have to note for the record I find your ruling improper and I object. I won the case and I went to talk to the judge about how I tried it. He told me never to apologize to the court-he said part of doing your job is to object when you believe something is objectionable and while you have to live with the ruling (until or if a higher court says otherwise) that doesn't mean you have to believe it was proper.
