    No, it was just a question to clarify what you mean. Are you asking me to prove this is illegal? Do you have some other point?

    I'm not convinced on the junkyard ownership, the cat doesn't fit.

    See LA, Haji couldn't have sent that cat to do anything, Bandit getting the Quests out of more than one jam. Yes, it does figure.

    We don't care about the basement. We're here to have serious debates. You need to stop with your childish antics. Keep your basement nonsense out of the upstairs.

    Don't be obtuse.
    It takes hundreds of thousands of dollars to run a viable campaign for a congressional seat. Some Repubs have described this ruling as a boon for non-incumbents. But which potential candidates will be likely to benefit? You can be certain that it won't be someone with views similar to that of Ralph Nader(for example). So, the process will winnow out certain political views- even more than it already does, that is.

    Nader's cohort doesn't stand a chance any way you slice it. I wouldn't exactly use them as the bellwether.

    It's really not going to benefit anyone that much. Most corporations don't want to go spending their money on political ads, and they could already do that anyway, just obliquely. The impact of this decision is overblown. The law it overturned was only 20 years old anyway, it's not like it's some kind of radical change (contrary to the crap you hear about it overturning "100 years" of precedent).
