Many are sociopathic, caring only about themselves, not caring who they hurt. A few take that sociopathy to the level of self-harm; they don’t realize how much they are hurting themselves by their actions.

If they can suffer from mental illness they cannot be held legally responsible for breaking the law. Let’s hope not.

Many are already on disability and public assistance.

I love that we’ve come full circle from the notion that people are property to the idea that property is people.

Several corporations with delusions of grandeur will be standing for President at the next elections.

@flutherother You may have said this in jest but it is going to take this actually happening, a corporation running for President and the subsequent legal battle to stop it, in order for the Supreme Court to realize how stupid this and the Citizens United rulings truly are. Only then will we see the abolition of the corporate personhood doctrine. This will be a first step in bringing our democracy and our government back to the “real flesh and blood people” where it belongs.
