Are tents money?

From the Washington Post, February 2, 2012

The US Supreme Court has recently held that campaign contributions – used by corporations, lobbyists and political action groups (PACs) to influence government affairs – are the equivalent of free speech; while reaffirming that corporations are entitled to the same rights as people, including free speech. Ergo money = speech.

By the same logic, aren’t the Occupiers’ tents a form of speech?

  1. This *conservative activist* decision is the greatest threat our republic, our democracy and our values have faced in a very long time. And the window to do something about it is very short—until the monied classes figure out how to really fight the new war rather than fighting the old one with bigger ‘guns.’
