I've seen two so-called attack ads posted all over Facebook in last day or two - one from Romney...

Having endured this leading up to the NH primary, nothing surprises me in pol ads any longer. Truth does not matter, swaying perception does. Hopefully we can get the amendment on corporate personhood through and put an end to unlimited campaign contributions that fuel this nonsense.

You know a corporation is a person when it goes to an abortion provider and wants to get rid of "a beating heart".

Well, the irony of course is that a corporation's only beating hearts would be those of the fully sentient human beings which comprise it. All of whom already have freedom of speech rights.

Therefore, corporations don't need freedoms of speech. But it sure looks like women are taking hits this week. When will it ever be "our bodies, ourselves" and not some political arena for those who have too much time and ego on their hands?!

Why, in the name of all that's holy, are corporations getting more rights than we are?!

Way too long. Each party twists words, takes things out of context and spins it all as negatively as possible in order to gain the vote.

I could say: I love this gorgeous weather! The other party could twist it to say that I am discriminating against grey skies, that I am hateful towards rain and am not thinking about the poor people who do not have air conditioning in their houses because they can now not afford to be comfortable, all because I am greedy and asked for gorgeous weather.
