Occupying the courts
Last Friday marked the second anniversary of the Citizens United Supreme Court decision, which gave corporations even more power than they had before to corrupt democracy.
That day, over 100 people gathered in Charleston, WV, as they did around the country to make a statement that this was not cool.
One of my favorite parts of the event was a bit of street theater in which Uncle Sam tried to teach certain justices the difference between real people and corporations.
All kinds of people showed up.
Of course there were signs. This was one of my favorites.
A good time was had by all.
