  1. I just…can’t.

    A divided U.S. Supreme Court struck down decades-old restrictions on corporate campaign spending, reversing two of its precedents and freeing companies to conduct advertising campaigns that explicitly try to sway voters.

    __________

    Companies, which had been barred since 1947 from using general-treasury dollars in support of or in opposition to a candidate, now can spend millions of dollars on their own campaign ads, potentially punishing or rewarding lawmakers for their votes on legislation. Labor unions, though they weren’t directly at issue in the case, have been subject to the same restrictions and may also now expand their political spending.

    Does nobody care right now?  Am I the only one seeing this?!  I want to go through legal channels for reform but we voted, me demonstrated, we did everything within our rights to bring about change, and we still get fucked.  

    What do we do?!  Somebody, tell me please.

    A jury in Seattle couldn’t decide. The officer has been fired; however, the police union is appealing his termination. Apparently the police union doesn’t see a problem with this kind of thing. Or at least not a big enough problem that it deserves firing.

    Disgusting.
