    On another topic, I think that the rise of corporate power, in the Gen. Butler War is a Racket vein, is possibly behind some of the worst of what is going on now. Read any arguments that the 1886 U.S. Supreme Court decision in Santa Clara County v. Southern Pacific Railroad Company (118 U.S. 394) did not actually grant corporate person hood, and that this doctrine derives from a mistaken interpretation of a Supreme Court clerk's notes?

    It give them free speech rights and therefore political contribution rights. I know, otherwise the income tax would not apply. So raise capital gains rates. This court does not seem to hold that Marbury v. Madison is settled law.
