    Then there needs to be less government interference and more consumer choice, that would actually bring costs down, instead, he wants MORE government control in every aspect of it, that isn't helping.

    He intervened in the auto industries to try and save jobs (cue rant about unions).
    That didn't work to begin with. But it took alot of nerve form him to make a personnel decision on behalf of GM, and a complete ignorance of the American business model.

    What sleazy dealings with census?
    How about the idea of subcontracting it to ACORN for starters.

    Spread the wealth around is what liberals do.
    Spreading other people's wealth using confiscatory tax rates is not a noble thing to do.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    I find it extremely disappointing that half the country lacks the basic common sense to realize that taking money from profitable businesses and giving it to failing businesses on net is not going to "create" jobs.

    What kind of "great political sign". I said it was a lie, which it was, unless we're to believe that the highly intelligent presidential scholar didn't realize what the court ruling he is talking about actually did, in which case it was just ignorant misrepresentation.

    This ruling does not allow any corporation to "bank roll an election".

    No ones proven me wrong on that. All they've done is go "umm, urrrrr, uhhhh, you're nit picking because you're taking exactly what he said and actually expecting it to mean what the words are defined as, grrr"

    Care for a discussion, or more trollish oneliners?

    I mostly agree with your assessment, except the part about being highly intelligent. If he were highly intelligent, his understanding of economics would be better than a teenage stoner in a Che Guevarra T-shirt. Unfortunately it's not.

    I cannot find 100 year old rulings, but Austin v. Michigan Chamber of Commerce is 20 years old, and was overruled.

    What gives you the impression I liked the decision? I simply recognize the First Amendment rights the court was upholding and that it ultimately was a correct interpretation of the Constitution. Personally I am concerned this will inevitably lead to more political corruption on both sides: Quid pro quo.

    Oh, the Tillman Act was a Supreme Court ruling? I was under the impression that it was a law.

    Furthermore, the Tillman Act didn't even cover this:

    We asked Schumer's staff about the 100-year-old comment, and they pointed us toward a 1907 law called the Tillman Act. They cited the dissenting opinion issued this week, written by Justice John Paul Stevens, that said, "The majority’s approach to corporate electioneering marks a dramatic break from our past. Congress has placed special limitations on campaign spending by corporations ever since the passage of the Tillman Act in 1907."

    ...

    The Tillman Act said corporations could not "make a money contribution in connection with any election to any political office." Now, does this mean that independent expenditures are outlawed, or just direct contributions? We looked at several court opinions and legal articles, and everything we looked at suggested that back then, people weren't thinking of campaign contributions in those terms. And in 1947, Congress came back and passed another law, the Taft-Hartley Labor Act, banning corporations and unions from making independent expenditures.

    ...

    So what about Schumer's comments that the Supreme Court "decided to overrule the 100-year-old ban on corporate expenditures." This glosses over a lot of detail. Yes, it was more than 100 years ago that the first law limiting corporate spending was passed. But we don't see evidence that the Tillman Act even envisioned a distinction between direct contributions and independent expenditures. And the ban on direct contributions still stands.
    PolitiFact | Campaign finance ruling on United Citizens is historical, but 100 years is a stretch

    The oldest ruling that the court reversed was Austin v. Michigan Chamber of Commerce from 1990.

    Lobbiests have strict rules. This opens the gates for a new form of bribery.
    And for maybe the 400th time since this ruling came down, I'll ask if anyone can give me some specific examples of how this case allows for a new form of bribery that didn't exist before.

    Pffft. You're so loopy on the matter, it would be utterly pointless to try to have a rational discussion with you.

    But, please do carry on.
