    If only conflating a democratic vote against Citizens United could strip Christmas
    of its Santa Claus corporate materialist hyperactivity.

    Well when the Extreme Court rules that corporations are religious institutions, Hobby Lobby and Chick Filet will become tax free institutions, and your ‘offering’ will also be tax deductible.

    Where was he when;

    John Ashcroft

    “To those who pit Americans against
    immigrants, and citizens against non-citizens; to those who scare peace-loving
    people with phantoms of lost liberty, my message is this: Your tactics only aid
    terrorists, for they erode our national unity and diminish our resolve. They
    give ammunition to America’s enemies, and pause to America’s friends. They
    encourage people of good will to remain silent in the face of evil. “

    The presidential press secretary, Ari Fleischer, condemned Bill Maher’s irreverent comic response to 9/11 by reminding “all Americans that they need to watch what they say, watch what they do.”

    Couple Arrested in West Virginia for wearing
    anti Bush T shirts at Bush Rally Settles Lawsuit for $80,000

    Not to mention the Dixie Chicks;
    Tom, Hicks, Clear Channel’s former vice-chairman, was a Bush associate and Bush pioneer, admitted to the Commerce Committee that the Pro War, anti Dixie Chicks rallies were a top down, corporate endeavor.
    (Not necessarily the government’s doing, but they were tight with the government.)

    Newt Gingrich, speaking at a Manchester awards banquet, said a “different set of
    rules” may be needed to reduce terrorists’ ability to use the Internet and
    free speech to recruit and get out their message.

    “We need to get ahead of the curve before we actually lose a
    city, which I think could happen in the next decade,”

    CaCi International v Randi Rhodes;

    A SLAPP (Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation) suit
    against a talk show host because she read something that was already on the internet.

    These are law suits that only the rich can afford and serve only to chill speech.

      The words ‘Republican’ and ‘hypocrite’ are rapidly becoming synonyms.

      From executive orders to Presidential vacations to White House Christmas cards to the President “taking too much credit” (think aircraft carrier, MISSION ACCOMPLISHED, etc.), what was perfectly acceptable and even desirable when their guy was in office, is now “tyranny”.

      How many of you realize that Cap and Trade was originally a conservative Republican free-market approach to controlling pollution. Sarah Palin of all people, supported it as recently as 2008 when she was the VP nominee.

      When I express the opinion that the GOP is unfit to govern, it is because I believe that a political party which consistently demonstrates such rank hypocrisy, lacks the fundamental moral core that is necessary for leadership. Politics and leadership are two very different things. When you trash your own ideas for the sake of political expediency, and in the process, put at risk the well-being of the country, you are clearly unfit to govern.

      In any case, aside from the fact that the proposed Constitutional amendment in the wake of Citizens United, is not in any way a “repeal” of the first amendment, TOIA’s references clearly demonstrate that the level of Republican concern for the first amendment is directly related to whether or not the person they voted for, sits in the Oval Office.

      John B. Henry was hiking in Maine’s Acadia National Park one August in the 1980s when he first heard his friend C. Boyden Gray talk about cleaning up the environment by letting people buy and sell the right to pollute. Gray, a tall, lanky heir to a tobacco fortune, was then working as a lawyer in the Reagan White House, where environmental ideas were only slightly more popular than godless Communism. “I thought he was smoking dope,” recalls Henry, a Washington, D.C. entrepreneur. But if the system Gray had in mind now looks like a politically acceptable way to slow climate change—an approach being hotly debated in Congress—you could say that it got its start on the global stage on that hike up Acadia’s Cadillac Mountain

        Sadly, we know that Crus himself knows better.
