    I’m not sure if that’s scary because it’s true, or if it’s true, because it’s scary!
    And the scariest words in the entire strip?? “Lawyer Up!”

    So republicans are born and not made.
    No wonder they are so against abortion…

    What the hell is an “Uzi carbine”? Uzi only makes sub-machineguns. I don’t like guns, but I know if you’re going to talk about them, you should try and get the terminology straight.

    For the Uzi Carbine, see:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uzi#Civilian_variants

    And a good thing too, since the strip completely depends on getting that detail right.

    This is exactly why Wayne LaPierre has called for armed volunteer guards in delivery rooms.

    If corporations were really “persons” wouldn’t they have to be at least 18 years old to buy (and sell) tobacco products?

    The Uzi Carbine is similar in appearance to the Uzi submachine gun, the Uzi carbine is fitted with a 16-inch (410 mm) barrel (400mm), to meet the minimum rifle barrel length requirement for civilian sales in the United States. It fires from a closed-bolt position in semi-automatic mode only and uses a floating firing pin as opposed to a fixed firing pin.11 A small number of Uzi Carbines were produced with the standard length barrel for special markets. Uzi Carbines were available in calibers 9mm, .41 AE, and .45 ACP.

    If corporations were really “persons” wouldn’t they have to show valid identification upon demand, proof of insurance, proof of current residence?
    Why aren’t they subject to “individual income taxes” if they truly are individuals/persons?
    Are they really subject to “searches through which law enforcement officers search a home or business without the owner’s or the occupant’s permission or knowledge” and subject to roving wiretaps (USA Patriot Act)?
    Are they COMPLETELY regulated in international banking activities?
    Are they held accountable for employment of unlawful aliens beyond minor fines and deportation of discovered workers?
    Shall I go on? No, I’m sure you’re tired of my ranting and raving.
    But think about it and ask yourselves how “free” are Americans? Who or what is a person or individual? What is a corporation? The former should be you and me, cuz, the latter is just lawful rape and pillaging.
    Corporations are “individuals” like I may have multiple personalities which encompass sociopathic behavior…
    Let’s see who goes to prison first.

    Today’s Dancing Bug is so ironic on so many levels. Very cleverly done! Thanks, Ruben.

    Note that of those twins, the armed maniac is the one who will survive to reproduce. There’s your human race for you, since Cain slew Abel.

    Most Americans, if they think of corporate personhood at all, are unhappy with the lobbying industry having raised the cost of admission so high that only corporations can afford to petition Congress. Few consider the implications of that sort of political and economic power being unrestricted by criminal law.
    I mentioned the tobacco issue specifically because it’s one area in which the first amendment right to advertise has been already limited by law. It’s also an area in which civil rather than criminal law, that is, fines rather than jail time, determines the punishment. I was simply musing on the possibility that existing laws might be used to eat into corporate power… Silly of me, I know, but the mind wanders…
