Love it ! "Lifted" it for sharing with friends and family.
There ought to be one day -- just one -- when there is open season on Congressmen.
And when lobbyists retire they get another job as an "adivsor" to a high-ranking official, or even the POTUS

I don't use the PM feature, so just email me direct at the address shown above.
Where is the Lobbyist Reform we were promised in 2007 by Obama? In my book, the only way to reform lobbying is to ban them altogether!
SCOTUS has already decided that corporations are people with certain unalienable rights.

I understand the ruling by SCOTUS but, it doesn't give a clear path to buying influence from Federally elected politicians.
It does. If you look the citizens united ruling also, you will come to realize that there is no longer a method of controlling them either.
Jindal is on my short list for potential POTUS. I have always liked him, but if he's a crook then that changes.

Someday your life will flash before your eyes. It's your responsibility to make sure it's worth watching!
Explain please - don't forget to include how having a corporation contribute to a campaign is different than having a large union buy a politician. It is not different. however I don't believe unions were giving the same personhood as corporations and can be regulated. I am not a hundred percent on that and will look it up later, but that is my understanding. Either way though money has destroyed the system.
