    that people do that corporations are not required to do.  On the other hand, there are things that corporations can do that individuals cannot.

    To say that they are the same for one thing (speech) and then not require the other things be equal can be demonstrated to be absurd.

    For example: People get drafted into the armed services.  Can a corporation be drafted?

    How about putting Exxon-Mobil on jury duty.  Not one person - no sir.  Everyone!  ALL Exxon-Mobil employees have to show up for jury-duty to server as ONE person on a 12 person jury.

    A person is not a corporation and a corporation is NOT a person.  It's total fiction for the sake of the oligarchs that run this country.

    Roberts is an absolute idiot.
