May 21, 2012 11:43 AM JP Morgan Chase Is Biggest Campaign Contributor to the Senator Who’s Chairing the Investigation of JP Morgan Chase

Oops. I do remember that line from the First Amendment, though:

Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of rich guys to fund campaigns …

OK, not really. But there’s something about it in the Fourteenth Amendment, I’m sure.

    Congress .... foul, amoral, excrement, passing as humans.
    Speaking of foul--
    FOX ..... their "news" side waves THE FLAG and preaches FAMILY VALUES and OLD TIME MORALITY ...... but the FOX ENTERTAIMENT side actively campaigns against all that the "news" side promotes. FOX ENTERTAINMENT pushes the "GAY AGENDA" (GLEE), PEDOPHILIA ("Family Guy") and every imaginable perversion and debasement.
    SO, FOX is happily promoting OLD TIME RELIGION in a heavy-handed manner bordering on ludicrous on one hand even as FOX ENTERTAINMENT undermines and subverts the American society.
    Would the REAL FOX please stand up!? Considering the fact that FOX news does It's "propagandizing" in such a divisive and moronic manner, I would suggest that the TRUE FOX AGENDA is the ENTERTAINMENT side. The promotion of Family and American VALUES on the news side is meant to make mockery that FOX claims to cherish.

    Well, the outcome of this investigation is already determined. The hard part will be formulating the lies.
