“Because when all else fails, alcohol succeeds… BRIEFLY. (Then you’re worse off.)”

“America is a wonderful country. Where else can a Teabagging nude centerfold become a memberof ‘the world’s greatest deliberative body’? Where else can a half-wit beauty queen come within ahair’s breadth of being a heartbeat away from the most powerful job on the planet? Where else cana prostitute transform himself into a journalist and gain access to the White House 196 times in two years? On this day, we really should be celebrating the endless possibilities for self-reinvention thatour wonderful country offers? Or we should drink heavily.”

Today’s Supreme Court decision has codified in law the complete corporate takeover of our Constitutional government. Now, multi-national corporations have the same rights as the average flesh-and-blood American and the right to spend whatever they want to elect their favorite candidates and push their own agenda. As Benito Mussolini, the father of modern fascism, said:

“Fascism should more properly be called corporatism because it is the merger of state and corporate power.”

That’s what five members of the Supreme Court did today — melded state and corporate power, but with corporate power being the dominant force. The only thing that would overturn this horrible decision isn’t going to happen — namely, that two-thirds of the Senate and an equal number in the House would vote for a bill to get rid of it. In short, I think we’re screwed.

BTW, why shouldn’t a ‘super majority’ of, say, six or seven members of the high court be necessary to pass this sort of monumental legislation?

If the country ever returns to sanity again, I think this date and this decision will be remembered as the dark day we truly became a fascist state.
