The Supreme Court says money is speech. With the chance of losing the biggest tax break of the new century to Ballot Proposition 1, oil giants ConocoPhillips, BP, and ExxonMobil are making it seem more like money is screech.
The Supreme Court also says corporations are “persons” so, under the First Amendment to the Constitution, oil money is “protected” speech. Consequently the big three can spend as much as they want to shout down all us flesh and blood “people” who support Proposition 1 but don’t have so much $peech at our disposal.
