Anyone else think it’s ironic…

…that many of the same people who believe American corporations shouldn’t have the rights of U.S. citizens are insisting that foreign terrorists should?

    Or, we can use the right wing logic and establish these laws instead.

    American corporations, like those in Guantanamo, will be found guilty until proven innocent for all future civil and legal suits. The burden of proof will be on the corporation to prove they are innocent.

    And foreign terrorists should be able to contribute as much money as they want… to Republican campaigns.

    Because taking two unrelated things and lumping them together is definitely keeping things in context.

    I will admit, by limiting my posts to less than a paragraph or so, they tend not to be very subtle. ;)

    But I still think this was funny.

    Or how about the way the same people who claim to be against the complexity and growth of government regulation, are the same ones applauding when corporations skim profits to lobby, donate and outright bribe for adjustments to government regulation, often including rent-seeking and other forms of protectionism? Let’s not forget the perpetuation and encouragement of a system where elected officials become beholden to corporate interests.

    The Chambers of Commerce and the WMC’s of this world routinely try to garner support for initiatives from businesses completely unrelated to the lobbying and regulations in question.

    Why is it a good thing for anyone’s profits, to be dabbling in politics that happen to appeal to the few members of a company’s current management?

    Be thankful you have a government where foreign visitors are treated with almost as much respect as citizens themselves.
