If corporations have the same rights as humans, why stop at free speech and religious freedom? Hobby Lobby should have the right to bear arms and be forced to attend kindergarten.

    Mucho bueno.

    Great article. I like how you extend the logic used to make an assertion like “companies are people” to other areas of human life/rights to disprove the assertion. Very nice. I think doing so proves your point entirely.

    Now why don’t libbies listen to that same logic extension of of assertion when I do it regarding gay marriage? They say such technique does not work there. Since they aren’t able to think through the logic, or just plain dismiss it due to bias, i can only conclude they are socially conditioned propoganda consumers.

    Fab video. Smart satire.

    “Did you know, beginning in the late 19th century, corporations were granted all the rights of the individual, but none of the annoying responsibilities. They lack, almost by design, any kind of moral compass, conscience, or compassion. Basically, corporations are a way to enact sociopathic behavior on a grand scale. In short, they’re what makes this country so damn great.”

    Agreed. Limited liability personhood is not acceptable.

    My hatred of religion is rooted in its inhumanity and its tyranny.
    But the court is handing tyrannical power to corporations by merging them with religion.

    Like the Dredd Scot decision of 1859, I fear it is likely to lead to civil unrest if it is not corrected immediately.

    Our courts and our government AND OUR PEOPLE – immersed as they are in the delusions and ignorance of religion – have relinquished their enormous hard-won powers which they inherited from a great constitution it and handed it to the business class.

    This past 15 years since the Bush presidency have been a national disgrace.
    We have thrown America away.
