    Indeed, Agent. Just consider all rights to a person here. Business will never be the same if Scalia sides with Hobby Lobby.

    Show me the "law" which makes this distinction. Specific language.

In order to protect the rights of people businesses can not be the slaves of the population as a whole.
    I will agree that corporations are people just as soon as Rick Perry executes one of them.

    If corporation were not legal personhood; who's going to buy, own and eventually sell the $30 million dollar piece of equipment used to manufacture widget?
    What, Joe Schmoe in Sales? No, he's entitled to act on behalf of the corporation, who purchases and then owns the equipment.

    Then when that equipment accidentally takes off someone's arm ... is Joe Schmoe the Sales Guy is going to be the one who is held legally responsible and sued?
    No, the corporate person will.
    You don't have to convince me. It's Bob N who doesn't want them considered "people" until tax time.

    Rick Perry has never executed anyone.

    In Texas, the Governor is the one who signs the death warrants.

    As, and only when, ordered by the judicial system of Texas.

    When Bob says this about corporations, he means corporations he doesn't like (like Chick-Fil-A and such). He doesn't mean this about Amazon or Google or companies with a known liberal bent.

    And this folks has been one of the things that I have been trying to convey in this thread: Gipper never asked me about this whatsoever, so what is he doing? Putting words in another person's mouth -- in other words representing me without my consent. Part of the collective that I didn't agree to.
