    You can go the SCOTUS website and download mp3 files of all the oral arguments.
    Listened to them on Obamacare and a few others, till after Roberts made up all sorts of Barbra Streisand on Affordable Care Act and know know for sure they are just a bunch of dictators in black robes making sh-t up or if you've read recently, for the old feeble ones, their law clerks are writing the opinions, not the Justices.....

    It is sad that the "justices" rely upon nuance when opining/ruling on plain language law. They being so "concerned" about narrow applications and all.

    What the case is about ...

    Issue: (1) Whether the biennial limit on contributions to non-candidate committees, 2 U.S.C. § 441a(a)(3)(B), is unconstitutional for lacking a constitutionally cognizable interest as applied to contributions to national party committees; (2) whether the biennial limits on contributions to non-candidate committees, 2 U.S.C. § 441a(a)(3)(B), are unconstitutional facially for lacking a constitutionally cognizable interest; (3) whether the biennial limits on contributions to non-candidate committees are unconstitutionally too low, as applied and facially; and (4) whether the biennial limit on contributions to candidate committees, 2 U.S.C. § 441a(a)(3)(A), is unconstitutional for lacking a constitutionally cognizable interest.

    Now Milady wife and I, One Percenters, incorporate, may our corporation donate as much as we wish? How about Karl Rove and/or The Karl Rove Charitable Trust?

    Corporations can donate $ and in-kind goods & services, but these are not tax deductible, unless you (or your Sub(s) corporation) contribute to a 501c(4) - that is the big deal that the Democrats and their felonious assistants in the IRS want to choke off - tax deductible contributions for political efforts/voter education.

    Of course union dues are tax deductible and unions are not taxable organizations - that is the other difference.
    If Repubs had cohones they would make unions subject to income tax.

    Trying to justify their jobs. When it comes to the 2nd Amendment, "SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED" is abundantly clear. It takes an incredible amount of legal wrangling to muck it up.

    The First protects the Second, and the Second protects the First. Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and our United States Constitution, and help We the People protect ourselves in the spirit of our Declaration of Independence.

    If (A) my idea of freedom conflicts with (B) your idea of freedom then (C) neither of us can be free until everyone agrees to be a slave.

    Orin Kerr, Is it a crime to smuggle a camera into a Supreme Court argument and film?

    " It’s true that there is no specific statute punishing possession or use of cameras in the Supreme Court. But sneaking a camera into the Supreme Court to make a film of oral argument might be a crime under several different theories. Here’s a tentative analysis of two possibilities, with a quick mention of a third."
