Corporation for Congress


“Until now,” Murray Hill Inc. said in a statement, “corporate interests had to rely on campaign contributions and influence peddling to achieve their goals in Washington. But thanks to an enlightened Supreme Court, now we can eliminate the middle-man and run for office ourselves.”
Next up, lobbying for a Supreme Court nomination.

Congress can stop this by introducing an amendment to that dated first amendment, which reads thusly:

"This amendment shall be known as the "Power to the People, Power to the People Right On!" Amendment. Nothing in the amendment right before this one shall be construed as allowing persons to say Bad Things. Bad Things shall be defined by Congress anytime before November, 2010. Congress shall have the authority to establish a Special Administration for the Liberation of Speech for the People, Right On, and may promulgate regulations regarding speech by Big Corporations or anything that reminds them of such speech. Bad Things shall include any disrespectful nodding or word mouthing by Justices of the Supreme Court during Presidential addresses, especially if they touch upon freedom of speech, such as it may be. Nothing in this amendment shall be construed as giving anybody the authority to restrict the speech of law professors about any topic whatsoever at any time whatsoever. A law professor is anyone who has ever taught at a law school, whether or not on a tenure track."
