    •  "clarification" would be an answer (12+ / 0-)

      to the questions: Why do corporations ever get to wield such power under any circumstances? and Why isn't Exxon's corporate charter being revoked?

        in violation of its charter or violated any Delaware corporate laws that would result in the revocation of its charter.

        Delaware, as the state of incorporation of more than half the public companies in the US, has developed a very lucrative cottage industry as the formal home of our largest corporations. It would take some thing beyond my comprehension for Delaware to revoke the charter of a company like Exxon and the latest spill would certainly not qualify. Exxon has the resources to respond to any fine or court judgement regarding this accident.

        What do you think Exxon has done that should result in a revocation of its corporate charter under Delaware law?

      •  Because--in order (0+ / 0-)

        to do any of those things we'd have to pry our so many pairs of legislators lips off off so many corporate rear-ends.
