It's funny.  Laugh. 10

After the Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission to allow unlimited corporate funding of federal campaigns, Murray Hill Inc. announced it was filing to run for US Congress and released a campaign video.

Are you an employee? In most corporations, you have about as much control over company policy as you do whether you'll survive the next round of layoffs.

Which is to say, you'll be as much a part of congress as the average citizen is today.

5 year olds can't run for office. FAIL.

(aside: the problem isn't lifting restrictions on speech, it's the form corporations have taken since John D. Rockefeller lobbied Congress in the 1860's to change how corporations were permitted). Fix the cause, not the symptom.

This is shocking, yet, I am not suprised. Things will inevitably keep changing in society, especially The United States of America. I was shocked when I heard about Public Healthcare of all however, that does not look like it is going as anticipated. This opens alot of doors and it will be interesting to see how this work. health insurance for Florida residents [thekoeniggroup.com] is what really needs to be done and other places of living which has extremely high costs associated with living such as NY, CA, FL, and other states.

What's With The Political Garbage (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 4 years ago | (#31030146)

I know that the idle section has been an abysmal failure, but it doesn't really explain why its taken to posting more political drivel here.

A lot of the stories posted here now seem to be just samzenpus's soapbox.

This stuff just barely fits the theme or spirit of this section, but a lot of it is just straight politics dumped off.

Joke? (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 4 years ago | (#31036818)

I'm not actually sure whether this is a joke or not. Seriously!

In other news... (2, Funny)

Rep. Heinz, Inc. (D, Mass.), Rep. Monsanto (R, Ky), Rep. General Motor Corp (R, Mi), Rep. Apple, Inc (D, Ca) have all agreed on a law proposal forbidding non-corporations from voting in general elections.

Rep. Diebold (R, OH) intends to filibuster on that bill.
