    No, the court does. He signs off on it. It's not he can just order someone executed. The Gotti analogy doesn't work at all.

    Wrong. A court does condemn the inmate, but the execution cannot take place until the governor signs the order, and of course, the governor can pardon a condemned criminal instead of signing the order too.

    Fact remains that I will believe that corporations are people only when Perry executes one.

    What do you thiink "he signs off on it" means?

    Yes, he can, but that's a different function. He can pardon any crime. He can't execute anyone a court hasn't ordered to be executed.

    OK, then you actually don't understand that it's a dumb joke which doesn't hold up to the slightest bit of scrutiny. It's not the first time I've given someone way too much credit, but I never make that mistake twice.

    I was under the impression that Citizens United opened the floodgates to unions as well.

    I want big money - whether it is unions, big business, or individuals out of politicians pockets ASAP - directly or indirectly.

    of course not, what will happen is individual rights will be infringed on and take a back seat, no thanks

    logical if people think hobby lobby is right then they must also think its ok for hobby lobby to discriminate against say people who have gotten divorced, unwed mothers, women in general etc etc its just simple BS

    Unions aren't people, either. I don't see you bitching about them being goven 1st Amendment rights.

    False. Unions must get the permission of its members before they use money toward a candidate which is not at all true with corporations. They don't need the permission from shareholders to endorse candidates. The money flows easily with no strings attached.
