“Because all ‘people’ with rights also have responsibilities.”

Damn Pinko Socialist Commie Liberals. Don’t they know, Virginia, that corporations are people too? And like humans they have responsibilities, or they’re SUPPOSED TO. If that’s so, then Scribe is “A-OK” with corporate person-hood.

Now we have a conundrum, a quandry, a problem. Do we execute only the brain or all the cells of that “person?” If Halliburton is found to have helped terrorists, or harmed the troops, do we waterboard the CEO or every employee? Blackwater supplies our enemies with talking points? Off to Gitmo they go. And, by the way, since Junior’s Crime Syndicate gave the Taliban millions of dollars just before 9/11 that Scribe figures went right into the pockets of the plotters, should we have Junior and his sleazy, plastic wifey watch while soldiers rape the two Bush sluts, just like some prisoners had to watch their kids raped? Maybe hook up some live wires and make Laura stand in a pool of water? Piss on their Bibles: use the pages as toilet paper?

Well, if corporations are people, then all their employees should be available to be snatched off the streets, or out of an airport because that’s “international ground,” not national, and turned into vegetables, just like Jose’ Padilla.

If corporations and crime families are people with free speech rights: more rights then everyone else since they have a hell of a lot more money, then they have a lot more responsibilities, right?

Oh, boy. Scribe CAN’T WAIT!

Can he help pour the water or pull the switch?

Just call if you need him.

He’ll be waiting.

IMHO, corporations have always been more of a threat to our form of government than some random religious nuts hijacking airliners or stuffing bombs in their BVD’s.

As you say, YOS, how do we stick them in Gitmo for further questioning? The officers of the corporation will just dissolve the business and float away, or rename it, in the same manner Blackwater became ‘Xe’. (Which I believe is pronounced to rhyme with ‘whee’ as in, “Whee, we sure get a ton of money from Uncle Sucker!”)

There are now movements afoot to pass an amendment blocking corporate personhood, but I don’t think they’ll get very far in our mainly bought-and-paid-for Congress. Jefferson, Lincoln, et al, warned of the end of democracy in America if the corporations gained too much power — now they have.

The employees of Corporations already take the fall for what the brains (board) of the Corp does. It’s always some employee who takes the cut (public shame and firing) for doing what the Corp. wants. That applies to what’s his name, who called the women ball players names, to GI’s who take the blame for Abu Graib, to the unheard of who are fired as an “example”.

Scribe will settle for the CEO’s head. With a little tartar sauce and mustard.

Ana, you could add to your list Scooter Libby, who was the designated fall guy for Bush and Cheney outting Plame (and he came out of it with no serious jail time and a nice income); G. Gordon Liddy, who protected Nixon; Oliver North, who took the hit for Reagan and Poppy Bush; and Jack Abramoff, who went to jail protecting the hides of many top Republicans, including Rove, Ralph Reed and others.

Melinda Pillsbury-Foster, at the How the Neocons Stole Freedom blog, outlines how the Republican elite always sets up a ‘fall guy’ in advance for every operation. if Cheney is ever prosecuted for illegally ordering torture, they’ll will be some military officer, Col. or above, ready fall on his sword to protect Dick, you can bet. It’s the way these corporatists operate.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
