You and I are such similar creatures Vivian. We both screw people for money.

They claim that this ruling applies only to the Vermont case but it's hard to overlook the fact that a majority of Supreme Court Justices, including Bush's two appointees, equate free speech with money when it comes to campaign laws.

The idea that the government can't make illegal certain ways we spend our money because of the First Amendment has always seemed absurd to me. There are all sorts of activities where the act of purchasing goods or services could precipitate a stay in jail. Think drugs or prostitution, for example.
