Had we not learned from history, would we have the nation that we have today? Had we not learned from history, would we not have the sciences, art, and great works of this day? All of our greatest accomplishments in time have been based on an event, person or persons in history. History, whether you like it or not, makes us the people we are today. Should we forget about the wars our nations fought? Should we forget about the civil advancements of our past generations?

You're only partially correct. Corporations can donate directly to a campaign, but they are limited in how much they can donate. They can donate any amount they wish to a PAC or multiple PACS. Now, PACS aren't supposed to donate to campaigns, but they can. Additionally, congresscritters receive compensation from corporations in the form of "after public service" appointments, appoitments for family members, vacations, stock options and many, many, many other ways.

It really depends, some programming I watch (Daily show, Colbert Report, Castle) rarely has commercials or they have this option to watch and extended commercial first and then no commercials for that episode during the show. I agree, it's annoying. I'd rather not have to see commercials for user supported tv, but HULU is owned by the big baddies of the media industry so it's inevitable.
