    I know, it's very much a lawyerly way of looking at it, but there it is. Four Supreme Court justices agree with me.

    I wonder who Iran wants to win our next election and will pour billions into to get into office. It seems with this new ruling they wil be free to do so if they funnel through a US corporation.
    Not to mention china who we owe our jock strap to.

    I need to read the opinion fully instead of relying on media reports.

    I won't change my opinion, which I have held forever, that corporations are not "people".

    No, you're not making yourself clear, you're just dancing around the question. But, whatever.

    Should Roe be overturned considering the same sense of 'making bad law' that you hold over this?

    You asked a yes or no question and I answered it with a yes or no answer.

    Not sure how I could be more clear.

    I can't seem to find anything about capital punishment. Please share.
    How does an accounting firm run without it's CPA licenses?
