The Supreme Court and food politics: update

I commented earlier on the Supreme Court’s decision to allow unlimited corporate spending on election campaigns on the grounds of free speech.  If a picture is indeed worth a thousand words, try this (I wish I knew its source):

Update February 2: Thanks for Dan M. for posting this site as the source: “The Future in History.”

This is stupid. for years now big corporations have been filling the pockets of democrats in one way or another. do you guys even know why democrats are pissed at this? it levels the playing field more then you could imagine.

Cute pic! lol. But just to be clear, the Court *didn’t make a “decision to allow unlimited corporate spending on election campaigns.” There are still limits on campaign contributions. Nothing changed, there. The court only struck down part of the law on *independent* political speech.
