Citizens United. Personhood to Corporate Entities. Bang!

So, I was thinking the other day while stuffing my bazoo with artificial food, about corporations receiving personhood by the Supreme Court.

Mitt Romney is strictly in the business of buying profitable companies with the full intent to profit from their destruction.

Sounds like a winner, right?

Maybe not.

If corporations have personhood, then wouldn't the deliberate attempt to destroy a profitable company be considered first degree murder with malice aforethought and great harm to the workforce that kept the company profitable?

Further, would the corporate leaders of the company that sold out to a company, such as Romney's, be acessories to murder and committing fraud on the shareholders?

This Supreme Court fiasco needs to be ditched in the Potomac and held there until it drowns.

I've got to stop thinking and go get some aspirin. I've got my head throbbing.

Sorry this diary is short, but it is what it is, so there. :-)

I will enjoy reading the comments or not, depending of course.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
