The Citizens United decision basically gave corporations a blank check to run the country. A check they mostly already had anyway.

Fair enough. I agree it's not helping the discussion, in fact people are obsessing over it so much that I very much regret using that word it in the first place. Losing focus on any actual substance of discussion.

Such as?

Wikipedia uses citations, you know... there's nothing wrong with reading it.

Peace, out.

Same for BVS, I get heated discussing this topic when I feel dismissed without much consideration. Didn't mean any offense.
DaveC will be fine, he is a good guy who just happens to like the wrong football team.

What people should focus on is civil rights and economic upturn from Obama. That's the two defining positives, in my eyes. Lots of stuff that's still grey, and some stuff that's in the red too.
Good Points. I thought i mentioned some of the civil rights stuff (im too lazy to go back and look) but you are correct there.

I have no problem giving him credit, along with the CIA and the Military who carried out the operation. He made the call based on their intel, and the military guys carried out the mission & it worked out pretty well. Had the mission been a disaster, there is a really good chance he doesn't get re-elected.

Well certainly I understand it was critical that it didn't fail for him, I just saw it as such a joint effort. I also see it as more symbolic than anything (US Intelligence had already effectively trumped al Qaeda by then).

And you did mention more than just what I quoted. Sorry for picking out one thing, I was partially agreeing with you. Just didn't want to quote a super long message!

As of today it is official that O'Malley or the "DILF" is running for President. So now there are 8 Republicans and 3 Democrats on the field.

Martin O’Malley launches populist campaign from embattled hometown
Meredith ShinerPolitical correspondent‎May‎ ‎30‎, ‎2015

BALTIMORE — Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley launched his presidential campaign here Saturday on top of a knoll overlooking the city’s Inner Harbor. Reachable only by a steep ascent up the hill, the setting served as a fitting reminder that his battle against the presumptive favorite for the Democratic nomination, Hillary Clinton, also will be an uphill one.
