Corporations are not persons

One more right of individual citizens right granted to corporations by the Roberts Court:

Justices: Can’t Make Employers Cover Contraception
WASHINGTON (AP) – The Supreme Court says corporations can hold religious objections that allow them to opt out of the new health law requirement that they cover contraceptives for women. The justices’ 5-4 decision Monday is the first time that the high court has ruled that profit-seeking businesses can hold religious views under federal law.

So what’s next? A direct right to vote? One vote per employee, cast by the top officers of the corporation?

Clinton repeats ’08 mistake

Clinton repeats ’08 mistake

By Brent Budowsky

If the political Gods would grant me one wish, it would be to meet Clinton at a secluded corner table at a local tavern with no aides, consultants or pols — just Hillary, me and Jack Daniels. And when we have sipped enough to shed our inhibitions, I would plead:

You don’t need to deny your wealth or condemn the wealthy, but to challenge them to lift the whole nation together in what Springsteen sang was the land of hope and dreams, in which those who have the most share a sacred calling to help those who have less. Tell voters about the passions in your soul, the courage of your convictions, the dreams in your heart, not about becoming president but about why, of a land that is lifted because nothing is beyond us when we are inspired to act together.

Hillary Clinton is a wonderful person and great public servant whose work has helped countless people. She has conquered sexism unlike few women in history, but unlike in 2008, she must now conquer the Stockholm syndrome of elites, abandon the illusion of coronation and sound the trumpet to summon the nation to the better days we yearn for.

Clinton-Warren for change

Clinton-Warren for change

By Brent Budowsky

In our season of political discontent, an enterprising pollster should run numbers for a potential ticket of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton running with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) as the ultimate team of transforming change for voters who want to end business as usual in Washington…

Here’s my Clinton-Warren math, which polls will prove or disprove. Net voter support from independent and GOP women: up markedly. Voter turnout and fundraising for Dems: up markedly. Net voter decrease from men who would otherwise vote Democratic: little.

The insider establishment is oblivious to the powerful hunger for transforming change from voters who have endured a decade of scarce jobs, stagnant wages, rising costs and financial pain in an economy they know is fixed and a politics they know is rigged…

If a ticket of two women offers economic revival and transformational change based on financial justice championed by Pope Francis, the most popular figure on the world stage, support from women would be stratospheric and many men would join them.

President Clinton would have her mandate to reach out to Washington and Wall Street for a shared spirit of economic patriotism that would lift the nation and change the world.

Tea Party obstructionism is nothing new.

From 176 years ago:

“’Whether, sir, you did not state upon the hustings [the campaign trail], that it was your firm and determined intention to oppose everything proposed; to divide the house upon every question, to move for returns on every subject, to place a motion on the books every day, and, in short, in your own memorable words, to play the very devil with everything and everybody?’”

- Charles Dickens, The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby, 1838, words spoken by an unhappy constituent to his member of Parliament
