After four years of waiting, finally heard someone applying the transitive property of mathematics to the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision wherein it is declared that Money = Speech. (Maybe someone somewhere did it earlier, not the point.)

Seems very straightforward that if Money is Speech then anything purchased with Money becomes Speech also. Anything. At all. For example:

Money equals Speech. Bullets are bought with money. Therefore Bullets are also Speech. Speech that communicates by the rapid transfer of kinetic energy, but Speech none the less.
