Is It A Crime To Kill A Corporation Yet?
In the distant future, what do you suppose will be remembered as being the ultimate “slippery slope” moment of our time? In my humble opinion that would likely be the day that the federal supreme court stepped into what should have been the state’s decision in Florida, and elected (or more correctly, appointed) George W. Bush to become the president of the United States of America. Oh to have been a fly on the bedroom wall when Bush was woken up from his alcohol and/or drug induced sleep with that news, “What! Are you shitting me? Looks like our old Poppin’ Fresh pig boy Rove was spot on the money, and now we’re in the money, big time”.
Some may state more correctly that he was to become the worst_president_ever of the United States of America, but that’s fodder for another posting, and off point for what our real problem is.
Now we find that with the humorously titled “Citizens United” decision the more or less same supreme court has somehow agreed to give corporations the rights of personhood, one has to wonder if that in the future it will be considered a federal crime to kill off a corporation, in cold blood or otherwise? And since corporations are made up of money and not flesh and blood, would this type of crime be tried as a Capital offense, or a Capitol offense?
Which begs the question, will lobbyists that pander on behalf of those (unbirthed but now) human victims be able to be called on to serve as expert witnesses for the prosecution? I’m sure that if the supreme court can give a corporation the right to be considered a human, can the gift of that same right for lobbyists, the slime who are at best usually considered to be sub-human, be far behind? At first glance they appear to be nearly regular humans, and their inner reptile will only show up when they feel they’re in danger.
Actually, the usage of that word “somehow” a few paragraphs above is purely rhetorical, because as it always ends up, you only have to pursue the age-old “follow the money” method to find the answer to any of those who / why / where / when question.
One of the more obvious money trails will lead you directly to that pair of suspects who have funded the, and please note that I’m being generous here, morons who have chosen to be called the Tea Party, when consider where the funding for it comes, the term Koch Sucker Party would be a more accurate assessment.
That brings to mind a line from Wm. Shakespeare who perhaps addressed this very question when he said “First we kill all the lobbyists”, or at least it was something like that. O.k., maybe that was about lawyers, similar to but not the same as lobbyists in that you can track the activity of some lawyers by a scan of their laugh inducing “billable hours”.
So, the question to probe into today is, would this event be legally known as Manslaughter, or in an ironic turn on words, Corpse-slaughter?
Oh yeah, I heard a short but really funny joke today, here it is:
The only way that a woman will be able to keep the right to have an abortion is if she was to have her uterus legally become incorporated, since at that point because it was a corporation, the government couldn’t try to interfere with what she did with it as long as she was named the C.E.O.
Are you laughing yet?
