    Such a fool starting a rumor then seeing if it turns out to be true. Reminds me of 1984 where the narrator finally believed the lies told him.

    Q: When a corporation is found guilty of multiple felonies (say BP, in the Gulf excrescence), who goes to jail?
    A: Nobody, ‘cause there’s nobody there! It’s immortal, so a long sentence means nothing; think about that…

    Someone should go to jail, and since BP, Halliburton and others were responsible for deaths of people, destruction of wildlife, defacing public properties and assorted, sordid crimes normally associated with prison time someone should be held to account. Gross Negligence resulting in death usually carries prison time. It seems BP settled for a fine of 4.5 billion USD yesterday.


    In the newspeak we use today, corporations are people, so Halliburton should be sentenced to a minimum of twenty years, with a guarantee of two years behind bars, plus probation, but even with time off for good behavior, 24 months behind bars. Either that or overturn that insane Citizen’s United Supreme Court decision that actually claimed corporations have human rights. You could jail the Board of Directors, all C-Level employees and everyone in the chain of command that incentivised, racketeered bad behavior and every line and staff, rank and file employee responsibility for that blowout and those deaths and the reckless massive environmental damage.

    As the shirt says; “I’ll Believe Corporations Are People When Texas Executes One!”
    Of course, if anyone ends up in prison from the BP and Halliburton Debacle, you know it will only be some low-level flunky that the Corporation will willingly sacrifice just to appease public outrage. No one of any REAL importance will EVER see the inside of a Courthouse, much less a Prison!

    That’s why we need a manned space program. For when Monsanto is convicted “he” can be taken completely out of the biosphere and imprisoned on The Moon.

    I thought college was to educate ones self, not take on the world.
    God knows there are enough folks trying to do just that, now.

    I’ll believe corporations are people when they start coming home from Afghanistan in body bags.

    Wasn’t ATT given the “Death Penalty” by the Commerce Department a while back?
    I think getting ripped limb-from-limb counts, doesn’t it?
    (Even if some of them grew back)

    The 2 design colleges I teach at have both had massive layoffs and dropping student numbers, even though the industry’s on the upswing. I’m afraid the for profit model has not been sustainable. Pure capitalism has created a lot of people hampered under huge student loans, out of proportion with the industry incomes. I truly believe in giving people an education in something they’re passionate about and can make a living in, but there’s got to be a better way to do it.

    I’ll believe corporations are people when the Supreme Court selects one to serve as President of the United States of America.

    I’ll believe corporations are people when The Donald Trump fires all of ’em.
