But given that I've seen people disappear to reach into the glove box for a CD and fiddle with removing the previous, and change the CD while in heavy traffic

Brother, in my day, I could swap out an 8-track with a beer in one hand and a joint in the other while driving a stick shift on the Eisenhower Expressway at 8:45am. On mexican quaaludes.

Don't look at me like that. I was the designated driver. You should have seen the guys in the back seat.

Fun fact: There's no Republicans involved in this story. Like most Hollywood types, the Sony exec here GAVE A SHITLOAD OF MONEY TO OBAMA'S CAMPAIGN.

All that tells us is their money is on the winner.

Fun fact: Just because I draft Tom Brady in my fantasy league doesn't mean I'm a Patriots fan.

Which anonymous "made a statement"?

The Brooklyn anons or the Westchester anons? Did it come straight from the president of Anonymous or maybe the board of directors? Or is it maybe THESE anons?:

Now you're learning of the inherent problem with anonymous, leaderless groups, cuck.

So you're absolutely right, better to ask what is proper etiquette WITH ANY CULTURE

If you live in the US and are an executive with a multinational corporation, and you still have to ask what is proper etiquette in dealing with a highly educated and well-traveled black man, you are either 1) clueless , 2) a Republican or 3) a racist.

Believe it or not, you'll never go wrong by just treating American people as people, regardless of their skin color. It works surprisingly well. On the off-chance that I encounter a black person, living as I do on the near West Side of Chicago, it usually turns out that they're generally regular people who laugh at funny sitcoms, enjoy well-made movies and good food and think the Bears should fire their entire coaching staff.

She also asked whether she should be prepared to ask the president if he would like to go check out some thick white broads after feasting on fried chicken and red pop (no ice).

I'm pretty sure that if you're at work and and pretty high up in a big corporation, you should have enough common sense and basic human dignity and respect not to be asking a colleague whether it's true that black people have a special bone in their ankle that prevents them from enjoying movies with white stars.

I mean, everyone knows black people like Liam Neeson movies.

Fucking people. I'm tickled whenever a huge multinational corporation has it's ass displayed for the world to see. It's a sign that they haven't completely locked down the world just yet.

As do members of unions and members of activist groups. Using your logic these groups of individuals should also be silenced.

I agree. No additional rights because you have pooled your money.

As the court has said, a group of people have the same speech rights as individual persons. There are no additional rights, just the same right.

Except, corporations are allowed to participate in elections to an extent and in ways that private citizens cannot.

Using your logic employees may have even more rights than shareholders. In your logic shareholders may have two voices, individual and corporate; while employees may have three voices, individual, corporate and union. Again I am referring to a situation such as "a steel corporation wanting the government to maintain a tariff on steel imports". The steel workers union would probably want the government to maintain the tariff too.

Right. Everybody gets the same vote. Everybody gets the same campaign finance limit (and citizens only). That's simple. Corporations, unions, etc are not citizens. They cannot vote or run for office. Why should they be allowed to participate in politics financially?

And if it was all about "rights" why has Citizens United allowed corporate donors anonymity in political finance when individuals are not allowed to be anonymous in the same way?

You make the mistake of thinking that everyone who disagrees with you is a liberal. You have an image living in your head that is not real.
