That rant just made the joke even funnier. Is it just me?

Corporations are entities, is a better way to put it. They do not have the exact same rights and responsibilities as a person, but there are some similarities as corporations draw people together for a common goal and direction. A case for fraud sounds a lot more reasonable if he was purposefully profiteering through bankrupt proceedings. At a minimum this should be a very loud warning siren as to his character and lack of fiscal responsibility.

As a matter of interpretation of the word "person" in the Fourteenth Amendment, U.S. courts have extended certain constitutional protections to corporations. Opponents of corporate personhood seek to amend the U.S. Constitution to limit these rights to those provided by state law and state constitutions.
People still do not get that?
How about 3/5's of a person?
Still don't understand what that means?

Murder statutes specifically refer to "human beings," not "people."
If you's spent a minute of time looking, instead of groping for stars and flags, you'd know the difference.
Or, did you just choose to ignore the difference?
What a waste of bandwidth.
Wrong. Corporations are not "entities", they have been SPECIFICALLY declared as "people" by SCOTUS. In a very legal definition, corporations should be treated the same as people from that point on.
