Judges are making these decisions because they are on board with the guys with the most money-power - banksters and their big corporate clients. Guess who they are getting all that money from - us. Some of it by frauding us with engineered financial bubbles, but most of it we are complicit in our greed. All our retirement funds are invested with the same people that we are fighting with our petitions. We want our cake and eat it too. It's as hard to give up that measly 5-6% interest on your investments as it is to go through the eye of a needle. But when you do the cash flows in the right direction. Even stakes of millionaires and billionaires are eventually slated to be gobbled up by these guys that deal in trillions. We need to stop cooperating with them. You have to stop feeding a fire in order to put it out.

Huh? Our economy "just couldn't function" if people without bargaining power couldn't be flim-flammed by those who have it? Does this court actually hear itself? Is our economy utterly dependent on fraud and exploitation in order to function?

Maybe if legislators were answerable to We The People, as envisioned by the Founding Fathers, instead of powerful special interests, things might be different. That's why it's essential that we overturn the Supreme Court's Citizens United v. FEC decision by amending the Constitution.

It ceases to be surprising that "law" triumphs over justice, and even common sense.

This is the age of lawyers executing contracts that are overtly extra long and obtuse; would be hard to understand even if one were to be a lawyer.

It's called self-perpetuating employment

Besides pythons run amuck, another reason why not to retire to Florida.
