    If corporations are people?!? "my friend"
    Then One corporation buying another is slavery!
    Slavery and/or involuntary servitude (except for punishment of a crime) has been outlawed under the 13th Amendment, so we have a legal argument to end corporate personhood.

    Another option is to use the prison labor loophole to force corporations convicted of crimes under the service of the government, paying them and their shareholders starvation wages for the duration of their sentences.  After all, if corporations are persons, they should also have to serve their sentences if they've been found to have committed crimes.
