If corporations are people, equivalent to flesh and blood people, then they must "live" by the same laws and regulations. For instance, until someone is of legal age, they cannot sign legal contracts...but corporations can from day 1.

If corporations are equivalent to people, then anyone who owns a share of stock is a slave owner.

If corporation are people, then they must have the same legal political contributions to candidates limits as individuals, and not a penny more.

If corporations are equivalent to people, then why can they hide money legally overseas to avoid taxes...and have a different tax system.

If corporations are people, what gender are they? Are they all male? If so, then they need to file with selective service. If they are all male or all female, then they can't merge (marry) in most states. If they are randomly male or female (like we are), then 2 male corporations can't merge. Corporations also shouldn't be able to merge with multiple other corporations because that could be considered polygamy.

No, corporations aren't people, but they are another type of legal entity...separate than people. A corporation can live forever. A corporation doesn't have a soul. If they are considered people, and they don't have to follow the same rules, and have the same rights and responsibilities, then they are a different class of person...possibly a higher class than flesh and blood people.

So-called "Free Market Capitalism" (the big lie) is the state religion of the United States of Global Domination. The corporations are the un-physical body of the their God. Money is their form of prayer. "It's the economy" is one of their favorite refrains by the choir.

Too many people are dying from simple medical errors, like injecting antiseptic liquid into a patient by mistake because it looked just like the antibiotic sitting next to it.

Wow, until this moment, I've never given any serious thought to getting my dear old grandma some bionic eyes! At 93, she's still there mentally, but the Macular Degeneration has made her all but completely blind.

US Federal agents may take a traveller's laptop or other electronic device to an offsite location for an unspecified period without any suspicion of wrongdoing as part of border search policies, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) recently disclosed and may share copies of a laptop's contents with other agencies and private entities for language translation, data decryption or "other reasons", according to the policies issued by 2 DHS agencies, the US Customs and Border Protection and US Immigration and Customs Enforcement.  DHS officials say the new policies apply to anyone entering the country (this includes US citizens) and are necessary to prevent terrorism.  An increasing number of international travellers report that their laptops, cellphones and other digital devices are being taken.  Policies cover "any device capable of storing information in digital or analog form," including hard drive, flash drive, cellphone, iPod, video and audio tapes and "all papers and other written documentation," even books and those "written materials commonly referred to as 'pocket litter'."

Sharon Jasper has been victimized.  Sharon Jasper has been rabidly wronged.  She has become a Section 8 carcass – the victim of ever changing public housing policies.

Sharon Jasper has spent 57 of her 58 years dedicated to one cause and one cause only, and has nothing to show for her dedicated servitude.  She has lived in Section 8 housing all but 1 of her 58 years.  It was a legacy passed down from her parents who moved into Section 8 housing in 1949 when she was six months old.  She has passed the legacy down to her children, but fears they may have to get jobs to pay for the utilities and deposits.  She laments about her one year hiatus from the comfort of her Section 8 nirvana, 'I tried it for a know…working and all.  It's not anything I would want to go through again, or wish on anyone in my family, but I am damn proud of that year.' 

Sharon was moved out of her St. Bernard housing project after hurricane Katrina and into a new, yet albeit, substandard quarterage.  As can be noted from the above photo of her new Section 8 home, it is repugnant and not suitable for someone of Sharon Jasper's seniority status in the system.  'Don't be fooled by them hardwood floors,' says Sharon.  'They told me they were putting in scraped wood floors cause it was more expensive and elegant, but I am not a fool – that was just a way to make me take scratched up wood because I am black.  The 60 inch HD TV?  It may look nice but it is not a plasma.  It's not a plasma because I'm black.  Now they want me to pay a deposit and utilities on this dump.'  'Do you know why?'

She has held her tongue in silence through the years of abuse by the system, but it came to a head at the New Orleans city council meeting where discussions were under way about the tearing down of the St. Bernard projects.  When a near riotous exchange between groups opposing the tearing down of St. Bernard and groups wanting the dilapidated buildings torn down and newer ones built, Sharon unleashed verbal hell with her once silenced tongue.  The object of her oratory prowess was an acquiescent poor white boy in attendance.  The context of her scathing rebuke was, 'Just because you pay for my house, my car, my big screen and my food, I will not be treated like a slave!' and 'Back up and shut up!  Shut up, white boy! Shut up, white boy!'

Recapping from the mental log of the city council minutes in her head, Sharon repines, 'Our families have been displaced all over the United States.  They are being forced to commit crimes in cities they are unfamiliar with.  It is a very uncomfortable situation for them.  Bring them back, then let's talk about redevelopment.'

Sharon directs the reporter's attention across the street to Duncan Plaza where homeless people are living in tents and states that, 'I might do better out there with one of these tents.'  She further lamented her sentiments about her situation, 'I might be poor, but I don't have to live poor.'
