Where does this end?

Taxpayer $  –> TBTF $ –> campaign finance…

Where does this end?  They will own every milliliter of your blood, every angstrom of DNA.

They own the law.

Welcome to reality, Democrats.

US Supreme Court abolishes restrictions on big business political spending

Original article, by Tom Carter, via World Socialist Web Site:

Supreme Court Ends Democracy

We know now that our nation, the one that our founding fathers fought for, is over.  That democracy, the will of the people to decide their fate, is over.  

The Supreme Court, with its corporate judges, has spoken.

A corporation can “legally”, and directly, buy our government, our Presidents, our Congress, and our elected judges with unlimited cash.

But, it is so much worse than people think…

Unemployment Insurance State Trusts In Crisis

ProPublica Unemployment Insurance Tracker:

The unemployment insurance system is in crisis. A record 20 million Americans collected unemployment benefits last year, and so far twenty-five states have run out of funds and been forced to borrow from federal government, raise taxes, or cut benefits. In many other states the situation is deteriorating fast. Using near real-time data on state revenues and the benefits they pay out, we estimate how long state trust funds will hold up.

(Hover your mouse over states on the map to see the current Trust Fund Balance for each state, and the Future Prediction of the balance, or the current Borrowed Amount if a state is in the red)

Bob Johnson: Welcome, Shoggoth!

Dear Friends,

It has come to my attention that Bob Johnson, a stalwart Democrat heretofore unknown, indeed unknowable as a political shrinking violet, has succumbed to the ululating horror.  The world promised to him in the murals was found to be uninhabitable.  He was last seen entering the Mouth of Madness in the Maelstrom of Irrelevance.  He begs the planners of the next proposed Antarctic expedition to stay away from things that should not be loosed on this Earth.  Please consider contributing to his undying cause of cracking Bill Kristol on the beak.  

Welcome to the Two-way Mirror Mountains!  Welcome to the Agony!   Welcome, Dread Shoggoth.
