Soooooooo, do you feel the same way about Unions? Or is someone going to say that they are somehow different? Union members, stockholders, what's the difference?

Yes, Jonah! I do believe this corrupt money is going to learn that there are MANY people who can't be BOUGHT! They can buy entertainers, listened to by the few gullible, and they can buy big TV propaganda ads and LYING billboards, but they CAN'T BUY the THINKING MASSES!! ONLY the gullible who don't pay attention!!~~~ and THAT number is getting smaller every day.

Obviously, "billybeer6" gets ALL his facts and news in the tavern, or he'd understand better what's really going on!

Ann has such a gift for getting the message across. Even stupid people can figure out what she's meaning!

It has come to my attention since my last comment that these people feel they are not actually getting enough results for the amount they have to spend. Possibly the Supreme Court ruling was a way to increase the amount for these dirty dogs to have to pay. In other words, the price has gone up. Now Corporate America is screaming extortion. Maybe they should just have a public auction. Next Congressman up for bid!

With all the people who have access to spy technology along with increased membership among these special government agencies it has gotten very difficult to suppress the deep down dirty secrets of all those who thought corruption was a way of life in politics. The dirty tricks and their methods used are really quite amazing. Maybe the little guy wearing that nickel might be better off than we all think. But for me, seeing is believing. Little guys are honest and sometimes to a fault.

Money talks and unfortunately people listen without thinking. If the trend in this election continues we will have the best government money can buy!

No matter which agenda seems to be the focus of attention of either party in this country the very wealthy have a plan to manipulate it for their own purposes. How many nickels we get to have always falls upon their charity. The rules about how to save or invest your money in my lifetime has changed several times mostly by deception. Only the rich have had the ways and means to maintain and achieve more wealth and power. I feel like I received very little for all the tax money I contributed to my government over the years. They know how the game is going to be played ahead of time and we don't.

So Sad - But TRUE.

P.S. waiting to see if any additional comment can beat billybeer6,s for sheer 180º from fact? Geeze, how ignorant.

This problem has grown to astronomical proportions especially considering the methods used by corporations. Thomas Jefferson only made the lowly nickel which says a lot for how our Constitution is truly recognized today.

If Democrats and the Washington Post had their way people wouldn't even have to vote or need free speech because the elite liberals would rule over you so perfectly in their small money socialist utopia.
