More speech is not the same as a broader notion of corporate personhood.

Does it though? Citizens United is essentially the follow-on to First National Bank of Boston v. Bellotti and Buckley v. Valeo, it doesn't exactly break new ground. Citizens United wasn't decided with any reference to corporate personhood at all - it is decided on a theory of free speech that focuses on the Read more

This really bothers me every time I see it - Citizens United did not establish corporate personhood or declare that corporations are people. It gives political speech (free speech) protection to corporations, labor unions and not-for-profits who spend their own funds on independent communications. It doesn't affect Read more

There is, unfortunately, no way to retrieve a burner passcode on Kinja's end. I had it saved to "sticky note" on my laptop that got accidentally deleted and doesn't seem to be in any of my backups.

Oh boy. That's a long time to remember something. I should write myself a sticky note or something.

Agreed on pretty much all counts. Plus, given the existence of censure proceedings against the President, I'm pretty sure all three instance of presidential impeachment would have better off as censure proceedings in the individual chambers. I mean, the House censured Polk for the Mexican-American War, for goodness Read more

To be technical, they voted to impeach for obstruction of justice and perjury, which are pretty serious crimes at that level of government (even if the underlying investigation can be reduced to an inappropriate blowjob).

I had cramps the rest of the day after I got mine put in in the morning. I took the whole day off, but after that everything was peachy keen. Take an advil before you go.

I will be in northern Wisconsin in August. Frosting probably doesn't last that long.
