Ben and Jerry’s co-founder wants to rubber-stamp dollar bills with Occupy messages

Ben Cohen, co-founder of Ben & Jerry's ice cream and one of the deep pockets behind the Occupy movement, says he is helping launch a campaign this summer to highlight the influence of corporate money in American politics.

Cohen and the Move to Amend advocacy group will distribute rubber stamps with anti-corporate election spending messages so that the politically minded can mark their dollar bills. The end goal: To secure a constitutional amendment saying corporations do not enjoy the same protected rights as individuals and that money is not a form of speech.

How ironic. B&J's wants to use their corporate money to make an Ammendment that using corporate money for political speech is wrong.

Well I would hate to give my money to a corporation that hates themselves.  I'll just save us both the trouble and never use them

Irony is rather the point. If you want to make money speech, make it obvious! People don't realize that votes are bought and sold with campaign contributions, so it's useful to illustrate that fact. What is Ben and Jerry's real involvement with Move to Amend?

In other news David Cobb of Move to Amend will be at Kingwood College giving a speech today, I hope he has some rubber stamps,

You are so lost. Stamping bills is another STUPID way the left thinks that symbolism somehow begets substance.

I am talking about the fact that B&J fund the occupy movement with big money from their business in order to try and squelch the free speech of other businesses.

So glad I am staying away from ice cream right now.  I like their flavors but after reading this don't want to buy them.

I think Move to Amend are kinda split from the founders of Occupy and trying to take over the thing.  From what i understand Occupy founders didnt want money from B&J.
