The scary part about this is that Scalia's vote is effectively doubled, because all Clarence Thomas does during arguments is ask "How'd Scalia vote?", vote that way, then go back to reading his copy of Juggs.

Aarontology: kronicfeld: What "special rights" do "corporations" have that individuals do not?

They're taxed differently for starters. They can also limit their own personal responsibility for the things they do, something you or I cannot. They have the same rights as individuals without the same responsibilities or obligations.


As the sayings go, I'll believe that corporations are people when Texas executes one.

Theaetetus: Americans have the right to bear nuclear arms.

I'd happily argue that.

WorldCitizen: Because People in power are Stupid: By his own arguments the 2nd amendment only pertains to antiquated black powder rifles.

Well, it says "arms" not guns. So maybe some cannons as well.

Of course, if you took the Constitution very literally, it does just say arms. Nuclear arms? Chemical arms? Biological arms? And I do remember at least one Farker arguing that in fact, based on the 2nd Amendment, Americans have the right to bear nuclear arms.

kronicfeld: Aarontology: Corporations don't have special rights in the Constitution, but that didn't stop Scalia from making some up. Now, if you're a real, flesh and blood person, Scalia thinks you only get the rights specifically granted in the bill of rights.

But legal entities? Sky's the limit.

What "special rights" do "corporations" have that individuals do not?


Why is corporations in "quotes"?

WorldCitizen: edmo: So it doesn't prevent restrictions on abortion.

So it doesn't prevent restrictions on homosexual sodomy. oops
So it doesn't prevent restrictions on restrictions on homosexual sodomy.

That's a pretty solid case there judge.Seems legit.

He's one of the people those Founders who were against a bill of rights feared. They feared some idiots would come along some day and say if a right wasn't included in the list, the idiots would think the Constitution didn't grant that right if it otherwise didn't list it has prohibited. Well, Scalia proved them right.


Not true.

Corporations don't have special rights in the Constitution, but that didn't stop Scalia from making some up. Now, if you're a real, flesh and blood person, Scalia thinks you only get the rights specifically granted in the bill of rights.

But legal entities? Sky's the limit.
