Let's just hope that Justice Scalia is never asked to deal with a case relating to bullying.

This is a surprising, but important victory for the first amendment. I didn't think the Supreme Court did that anymore.

As for campaign finance, I didn't think they could do any more damage after Citizens United, but they found a way. This is America in the 21st Century - you're entitled to all the rights you are rich enough to buy.

If the SCOTUS says it's OK to sell violent games to minors, then I suppose they wouldn't object to pornography sales to minors? ?

so if there is a nude decapitated body, kids should only be able to see the head. or does the gore make the nudity okay? i mean, violence solves all problems, amirite?

Since money is speech, and corporations are people, why are biologically human people even necessary on our planet?
