    Unions are people, churches are people, Govn.’ are people, civilization is people.
    Only corporations can’t be people so it’s ok for progressives to preach hatred upon them and steal their property.

    Hello Neighbors,
    In a recent Supreme Court decision- if I clearly understood the decision- Unions were told they could no long use monies collected from rank and file for political causes without the express permission of the individual member. Yet, the Citizens United ruling permits corporations to use monies collected through shareholders and the work of employees whether or not the individual shareholder or employee wants the corporation to support a particular candidate. I agree with SCOTUS on the union decision, but strongly disagree with Citizens United. In fact, the political ads funded by these newly strengthened super pacs are dividing citizens, not unifying them, more and more each the week.
    Money from Corporations and Unions isn’t speech. Letters, emails, and conversations are speech.
    Speak up America. WRITE and STAMP a letter to your elected officials and party leadership(national and state)with thoughtful and respectful expressions of your opinions and how you want legislatures to vote. If that doesn’t work, we’ll have to use the internet to created referendums they cannot legally ignore. We can also boycott corporations.
    Respectfully,
    C

    Obviously you are new here. Common sense is strictly forbidden and “respect” is not OK unless you are speaking to someone who agrees with yoour political philosophy. Welcome aboard.

    The idea that “corporations are people” is ensconced in the United States Code, although the term is “Person” not people.

    26 United States Code 7701 – Definitions
    (a) When used in this title, where not otherwise distinctly expressed or manifestly incompatible with the intent thereof—
    (1) Person
    The term “person” shall be construed to mean and include an individual, a trust, estate, partnership, association, company or corporation.

    All the CEOs? The president? The employees? How does it work?

    I own a corporation and I assure you that it’s not a person.

    Hey, corporations are people, my friend! — Willard Romney, early in the primaries.

    LLC” is unto itself an interesting acronym, as it means “Limited LIABILITY Corporation”, as in, “we screw up, and pass the buck”. And yes SCOTUS in the past HAS limited unions, while NOT limiting corporations. Shareholder letters are now quite interesting as the bottom line on proxy is “don’t bother, because the board will do what IT wants!”.


    Owning an oil company is a license to print money. And being a corporation is a license to drive 88.6% of Congress, and 99.9% of all Republican administration decisions, regulations, Executive Orders, and “signing statements”.

    You sue the CEO, unless it was Romney, because he wasn’t really involved.

    How about reinstate the equal time for each candidate or ballot measure and take big money out of buying so much advertising?

    It once was that way.

    But does the CEO spend time in jail on manslaughter? Or murder?

    If you don’t like what a corporation, of which you are a stockholder, is doing with their money, then sell your stock. Try to quit a union and watch what happens to you.
