When you think about how tiny $14 billion is compared to the $3.8 trillion Federal budget and the $14.5 trillion U.S. economy, it makes you want to weep; how cheaply we have sold our government, and how much we suffer under the whip of those who bought it for a pittance.

Inidividuals have the right to free speech. Individuals have the right to association. It is crazy to then posit that individuals, when they associate, no longer have free speech rights.

I'm going to take just a smidgeon of credit for predicting this one. As the money starts to run out, politicians realize hey, this isn't as much fun as writing checks from a pool of infinite money! People start using uncomfortable words like "austerity" and "blame" and "who printed all this goddamn money?"

In the case of the Koch brothers, they have been outspoken philosophical libertarians for decades. Their support of free speech over onerous campaign laws is entirely consistent and should not be surprising. However, in the case of Wal-Mart Fang is also astoundingly hypocritical. Because you know who else is a "Walton-Funded Group"? Lee Fang's employer:

We move into the square. Most people are trying to flee the fighting but some move towards it, up the famous steps of Syntagma. We move with them, filming with hand-sized stills cameras to avoid getting hit by the hardline protesters who insist the media is part of the state.
