    But declaring that bribery is freedom of speech guarantees that we wil get the best government money can buy.
    On the outside, trickling down on the insiders.
    We won't live free until the 1% live in fear.
    Hey, richboys! Imagine the boot of democracy stomping on your faces, forever.

    You had posters here commenting how the ruling of the SCOTUS was going to be about the end of Democracy and that unless it was "Corrected" (insinuating the Supreme Court was wrong in it's decision) that corporations would control the US. This wasn't "bitching and moaning"?

    You had a POTUS using the State of the Union address to publicly chastise the SCOTUS for their decision. You had one Democratic politician comparing it to the Dred Scott case in terms of how "wrong" he thought the court got it and another prominent one calling it a terrible mistake and insinuating that the Court significantly overreached its boundries. That wasn't "undermining" our highest court?

    You had multiple prominent democratics launching initiatives and putting forth actual bills to try and amend the constitution to overrule the decision. Is that any different than Republicans suggesting they want to fight Obamacare and overturn it?

    That's not even going onto the countless arguments of it being "conservative activism on the court" or the continual whining through mocking of "Corporations are People", and on and on. The one difference I'll give is that typically the left is more wordy and at time smore eloquent in their whining and bitching...but don't give me this crap that there was no "bitching and moaning" or attempts ot "undermine" the court after CU came out.

    Its a pot and kettle thing some people like to perform over and over.

    It happens from time to time on both sides of the aisle. Those mosty guilty of it cant see it for what it is.
