Another When Falls the Coliseum posting -- Supreme Court Citizens United Decision

This one about the Supreme Court's decision in the "Citizens United" case. It can be read here. A small sample:
WHEREAS, an informed citizenry is necessary to the perpetuation of our government as it currently exists,

WHEREAS it is in the vital interest of everyone that our government perpetuate itself as it currently exists,

WHEREAS it is self-evident that money is inherently bad,

WHEREAS it is also self-evident that when two or more people get together to spend money to influence elections that is inherently bad,

WHEREAS there is nothing in the First Amendment about the right of people to assemble, except the part about the right of people to peaceably assemble,
It, uh, goes on from there. A few more Whereases, and then some Therefores, and it all wraps up nicely.
