    I enjoy your comedy and put up with your politics though I respectfully disagree. But this line that “corporations aren’t people” is uninformed. The United States has recognized that corporations have the rights of individuals under the Constitution since the early 1800’s. I’m curious if you are really informed on this issue and are just baiting to get your point across. I think there are legitimate arguments to be made against the fiction of corporate personhood, but I don’t think you are making them in an intelligent way. For instance, if corporations are not to be considered individuals, can they enforce contracts? If you slip and fall at Wal-Mart, can you sue the corporation? Will the corporation enjoy all the rules of evidence and presumptions to which individuals are entitled?

    More problematic, the entire legal system (and our laws) have been built around the presumption that corporations are individuals. Are you proposing we repeal and/or amend 200 years of jurisprudence, legislation?

    Finally, can the government regulate businesses with impunity? I mean, if the government can tell the businesses how to behave and act, shouldn’t they have input and say in the government just like other citizens? Isn’t that the entire point of the Revolution – no taxation without representation?

    Sorry, but this issue just hits a note with me and I really want to see your position spelled out more clearly. I don’t think a snarky 45 second video is intellectually honest.
