Very Scarey!

Hat Tip to the Badger Blog Alliance!

Jiblog comes through again. Hat Tip to him for this posting at the Badger Blog Alliance (which he says is also at his main blog). This is why I am pretty much opposed to all campaign finance reform.

All bloggers left and right need to read this CNET article! Also be sure to work to defeat SB-46!

We very definitely need to bring this to the attention of our legislators. My congressman voted against McCain-Feingold and this is just one more reason to have done so.

Justice Antonin Scalia in his dissent on the Bipartisan Campaign Finance Reform (BCFR) Law states:
This is a sad day for the freedom of speech. Who could have imagined that the same Court which, within the past four years, has sternly disapproved of restrictions upon such inconsequential forms of expression as virtual child pornography, Ashcroft v. Free Speech Coalition, 535 U. S. 234 (2002), tobacco advertising, Lorillard Tobacco Co. v. Reilly, 533 U. S. 525 (2001), dissemination of illegally intercepted communications, Bartnicki v. Vopper, 532 U. S. 514 (2001), and sexually explicit cable programming, United States v. Playboy Entertainment Group, Inc., 529 U. S. 803 (2000), would smile with favor upon a law that cuts to the heart of what the First Amendment is meant to protect: the right to criticize the government. For that is what the most offensive provisions of this legislation are all about.

Don't think it can not happen!
