Corporations as PINOS

Got to place hold this piece from Bookman of the AJC — he excerpted a Montana Judge’s critique of several notions regarding corporations — this paragraph attacks the idea that “Corporations are people too!”

Corporations are not persons. Human beings are persons, and it is an affront to the inviolable dignity of our species that courts have created a legal fiction which forces people — human beings — to share fundamental, natural rights with soulless creations of government. Worse still, while corporations and human beings share many of the same rights under the law, they clearly are not bound equally to the same codes of good conduct, decency, and morality, and they are not held equally accountable for their sins. Indeed, it is truly ironic that the death penalty and hell are reserved only to natural persons.”

Corporations are just “Persons-In-Name-Only” — otherwise, the Right-to-Life groups would be protesting the murder of 75% of PINOs prior to their third birthday!   We would see test court cases challenging the execution of PINOs on the grounds they owe taxes and must by liquidated to pay their debts!  The satire is endless — but the rude consequence is that real Persons must compete with PINOs for privileges of liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  Please, show me  where this is discussed as an “inalienable right”?  Does God have a special place for the Chamber of Commerce at the judgement seat?
