A 'win' for our democracy.Corporations have 'rights' just like individuals.Great. Arbitrary legal constructs now have the same rights as people. This ruling makes me a little misty eyed. Just the other day I was telling my wife this country would never truly be free until arbitrary legal constructs had the right to vote. Maybe one day corporations will have the right get married. And, dare I say it, two corporations will be able to marry each other even if one of the companies is black and the other one is white.I draw the line at two companies of the same gender marrying each other though. Equal rights is not special rights. 5-4 decision, and apparently Sotomayor helped tip the balance. She was so left wing radical, she made one of the moderates so angry at her ultra left wing stance that he moved into the vote...Great. I sleep so much better knowing Supreme Court decisions are made based on feelings of anger and revenge, instead of logic and legal precedent. This is such a great day for America I don't know what to say.
