Transocean has recently spent $110,000 on a lobbying firm after the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded, to influence Congress on energy legislation, mobile drilling units and offshore drilling. Now that the Supreme Court has ruled that corporations are persons with Constitutional rights, these "persons" are hiring swarms of actual humans to descend on Capitol Hill like a hoard of locusts. Meanwhile, the rest of us are waiting for the Court to realize the stupidity of its position, or for one of the Conservative Crazy Five members to decide to retire so President Obama can appoint somebody sane.

Did Carrier Fleece Both Trump & America?

Donald Trump took a victory lap in Indianapolis yesterday afternoon, where he and Vice President elect Mike Pence officially announced a deal to keep 800 Carrier jobs in Indiana.

That's 200 fewer jobs than the 1,000 jobs that Trump initially said the deal would save, but that's kind of besides the point.
