  •  actually the constitution doesn't really matter (0+ / 0-)

    congress has NEVER paid attention to it

    someone would have to actually take it before SCOTUS

    if they did if you'd actually read thom hartman's books unequal protection we'd be able to  hurt them even worse for daring to bring it before the courts.

    Please, don't presume to lecture me about the constitutional legality of the issue. When have they ever let that stop them?

      members of Congress won't even suggest it, and certainly wouldn't vote for it.

      •  Then how is corporate personhood constitutional? (0+ / 0-)

        if for instance they came after us on the grounds that defunding the red states
        subsidizes was unequal protection we could reply that the corporate powers in their state receive unequal protections becaue executives are able to hide behind corporate personhood in order to deflect blame when for instance pfizer  sells and markets drugs to people in a way that leads to deaths why should Pfizer be responsible for anything more then the Fiscal damages? The Employees themselves enjoy unequal protection because they can break the law with impunity and then say they were acting under the Authority of Pfizer.  the employees themselves could be charged with crimes for “acting under orders”

         anything less is unconstitutional-unequal protection.

        How does the corporation receive a fine while it's employees shirt away with nothing?
