Corporate personhood is an American legal concept that a corporation may be recognized as an individual in the eyes of the law. This doctrine forms the basis for legal recognition that corporations, as groups of people, may hold and exercise certain rights under the common law and the U.S. Constitution. For example, corporations may contract with other parties and sue or be sued in court in the same way as natural persons or unincorporated associations of persons. The doctrine does not hold that corporations are flesh and blood "people" apart from their shareholders, executives, and managers, nor does it grant to corporations all of the rights of citizens.


They don't care.

They only thing they want to do is push intellectual dishonesty.

For the umpteenth time it is NOT the place of government to provide for the materialistc wants of the masses.

Just out of curiosity, let's assume that neo96, or anybody else for that matter, believes it's OK for Hobby Lobby to invest in a company which, among hundreds of other products, makes abortifacient drugs. What does that show us? Really nothing. Surely that's between them and their God.

Does that fact reverse the Supreme Court decision? Of course not, not in your wildest hopes and dreams. Besides do you really want to attack everyone who appears to be a hypocrite or promise breaker? If you do, who will run the White House?

Could you contribute something a little more substantial, perhaps why you think it was a bad ruling, or where we should go from here (keeping in mind the fact that the liberal Senate couldn't get a bill through to change the decision). I'd like to hear an honest opinion.

Sorry to butt in here, but what "simple question" are you talking about because I haven't seen you use a question mark (?) yet when responding to neo...

Forgot my question mark...? There it is.

Do you understand the concept of liberty? That there's a difference between being forced to do something, and choosing to do something?

That is like them who are vocal about hating the miltary using what they created.

The internets.

GPS in their cars.

The radar that is now found on autos that protect people from getting hit.

To nuclear medicine.

Guess they are just as guilty as those who they decry.

I'm sure that in 1993, back before the SCOTUS declared corporations people with religious freedom, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act seemed perfectly reasonable. Although it was never necessary in the first place; as our religious freedom is already Constitutionally protected. Nevertheless, with the direction the SCOTUS has forced us in with the Citizens United & Hobby Lobby decisions, it is abundantly clear that the recent SCOTUS decision is in conflict with the original spirit and intent of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

I'm certain that we have all, at some point in time, stood behind something but distanced ourselves from it when it became tainted from outside interference.

I see absolutely zero hypocrisy with Democrats that formerly approved of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act now distancing themselves from it. It's a bastardized law thanks to the worst SCOTUS in the history of America.
Well you really said nothing in your post. How about explaining the way it became "tainted". It won the senate vote 97-3.

Oh also explain how unions are people too

Senate GOP to Introduce Bill Banning Employers From Dictating Birth Control Choices



If Democrats are intent on staging moronic messaging votes designed to obfuscate the core issue in the Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby decision, Republicans stand prepared to offer their own moronic messaging legislation -- which will at least serve the purpose of exposing their opponents' deliberate distortions. As the upper chamber readies a procedural vote on Democrats' misnamed "not my boss' business" bill, The Hill reports that Senators Mitch McConnell, Kelly Ayotte and Deb Fischer are introducing a Republican alternative that would bar employers from blocking employees' access to contraception:




The Huffington Post groans that "the GOP bill would change nothing, because women can already legally access contraceptives approved by the Food and Drug Administration." Correct. Thank you, HuffPo


What a FARCE !

The faux outrage about Hobby Lobby.

You have your terminology and your concepts all messed up but anyway, you're just wrong. It's not an issue of "that say corporate products are 'human rights'" whatever the hell even means.

The real issue for most of us is quite simple.

Corporations are not individuals and should not be afforded the same protections as individuals.

That's what you think corporate welfare is? I'll give you a right-wing source that might help you understand. Tad DeHaven from The Cato Institute wrote Corporate Welfare in the Federal Budget back in 2012. He estimated corporate welfare to cost about $100 billion a year, but that's a fairly conservative estimate. Other sources like Citizens for Tax Justice estimate it as high as $181 billion.

Subsidies, tax deductions, tax credits, etc. Millions and millions of dollars are spent lobbying to make sure the gravy train never ends. Both parties are responsible for corporate welfare.
