Post Card Tsunami

The same five Supreme Court Justices that brought US the Citizens United decision have taken the next step toward the gentrification of American law. They continue to interpret the constitution as though it favored those of means. What to do? From the comfort of your own home you can send them a postcard an share your dismay.

Address side:

Chief Justice Roberts
Justices Scalia, Kennedy, Alito and Thomas
1 First St NE Washington, DC 20543

Message side: (this is just what my postcard said – say how you feel) don’t forget the black edges (a sharpie will do)

Postcard Tsunami copy 2

Send the Supreme Court a Post Card Before the January 21st Citizens United 3rd Anniversary.

I am still shell shocked after the media mud throwing fest we called an election, funded in large part by mischief money.

Join me: send a postcard to the Supreme Court and let them know that it is time to reconsider the source of the $6Billion assault on civil discourse: the Citizens United Decision. Send one to the Chief Justice or one to each of the nine. You can buy the blank postcard at the post office for the cost of the postage only! (The Court cannot be reached by email.)

It’s easy – here’s all you do!

[Address Side]

Justice (or Chief Justice) (Justice’s Full Name)
Supreme Court of the United States
One First Street N.E.
Washington, DC 20543

[Message Side]

Dear Chief Justice John G Roberts Jr:

I believe the $6B election we all just endured is proof enough that the Citizens United Decision was a mistake. Only the Supreme Court can make this right. Please reverse this ruling.

Respectfully,
(Your Name)

PS: I’m going to draw a black border around mine! The names (and bios) of the Members of the Court for your postcard address http://usgovinfo.about.com/gi/dynamic/offsite.htm?site=http://www.supremecourtus.gov/

SCOTUS on notice

If advertising and marketing didn’t make a difference in sales, American business wouldn’t spend hundreds of billions of dollars on it every year.

By making money “speech”, by extending business (even global business) personhood to virtual citizenship and right to free speech, then going one further and giving these “special” business/persons/citizens unlimited money/speech rights (when “ordinary” citizens are limited in their money/speech rights), the Supreme Court has shown its colors.

Either the SCOTUS does not know the power of advertising and marketing in determining an outcome, or it has intentionally decided to unleash that power in the political arena in way that insures the scales tip to business.

Ignorant or biased? It does not matter to me.
