3. I think the NRA did something close to money laundering

The NRA might have been a little too sloppy with their paper trails.

The GOP and NRA would be glorious.

2. Do you mean by donating to the dark money PACs?

I think that what you say is effectively true. The dark money PACs that say they're for education or whatever. They then go spend all their money on politics and still don't get stopped by the government. They would be a vehicle for this.

8. Didn't President Obama point this out

during one of his State of the Union addresses?

And isn't that when Roberts mouthed something like "No it doesn't"?

Those were the days...

10. You could be right.

My memory isn't all that great and I'm too hot and lazy right now to look it up.

But President Obama was absolutely right. As usual.

13. Remember that we have Kennedy to that for that

https://theintercept.com/2016/09/20/justice-kennedy-citizens-united/

I never understood the fawning over Kennedy. He was always a hyper partisan, and would twist himself into knots if it would benefit the GOP. Siding with us in a few cases, no matter how important those individual cases were, will never override the damage that he and his Republican cohots, have done.
