CITIZENS Ignited (& burning UP FAST)

A few years ago, the U.S. Supreme Corpse dropped an egg on our heads: “Citizens Ignited and Burning Up Fast”.

The actual name is "Citizens United," but "Citizens Ignited (and Burning Up Fast)" describes it much better.

This egg smells like something dead that has been ripening in the back of your garage since Christmas.

In short, Citizens Ignited (and Burning Up Fast) gives Gazillionaires unbridled power to go to the store and buy a politician -- or usually a whole egg carton full  (cheaper by the dozen, and Gazillionaires love to save money, which is partly why they are Gazillionaires).

So now, unless you are Gary Lee Gazillionaire, you really have no vote, and no say about anything anymore.

Hate the way climate change is melting the ice caps and blitzing the polar bears?  Too bad; gazillionaires get tickled pink when they can pollute. 

Hate the way all the stuff you buy causes you to die of cancer?  Too bad; Gazillionaires just adore selling you all that stuff. 

Hate the way the whole earth might catch fire because Gazillionaires love to spit their carbon out into the air?  Too bad; you can’t do a darn thing about it. 

Or can you?

Here’s what you can do to help: Read up on these Super Heroes, tell your friends, explain Citizens Ignited to your brain-challenged cousin Cuddle Pie, and your brain-addled Uncle Adolph.  

Call your Congress person and promise to come personally and spit in her eye if she does not vote for the “Constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United.” 

It’s also known as “The Democracy for All Amendment.” 

 Yup.  It's true.  

So get busy; your Mother the Earth will hug and kiss you for it.
