Them Durned Activist Judges

In 1886 the Supreme Court of the United States passed... a decision... *sigh*

I really don't feel like typing.

Here's a link to a (.PDF) medium-sized essay, written by Willam Meyers, that discusses (among other things) the all-time most controversial (and surely least the known by the general public) case of judicial lawmaking... Santa Clara County v. Southern Pacific Railroad Company.

Do you know what they decided in that case? No?


  • Actually, the synopsis offered by William Moyers pales in contrast to the book by Thom Hartmann Unequal Protection
    Here is where the reader is left crying at the perversion that corporations have performed.

    At this point I would like to thank George W. Bush. I would like to thank him for totally destroying the thing we used to call America, fore now in his fascist wake, we can rebuild without having to worry about all that history and stuff. We can just roll the precedents back to the 1800's and start back there making sure that the prick sucking fascist corporate fuckfaces are kept in the bottle. Making sure they have Blameworthiness, so that their "artifical personhood" can be stripped and whipped like a real person. Make sure that they are forced to pay their unconsitutional taxes. Make sure when they are contracted to do a government job, that ALL stockholders are American, so we can be rest assured that the interest in their "bottom line" benefits us. These fascist scumbags. We need to invade another fucking country, and that is Switzerland, to find our national treasure buried in all the wealthy fucks swiss bank accounts.

  • I can sympathize with the rage, anon, but I can't agree with those means... lol =P

    As far as recouping We the People's portion of the treasury that has been diverted to a small percentage of corporate fatcats... I'd prefer that any corporate personhood/rights be revoked, have tribunals (as was done, in the past) assessing which corporations have violated their charters, terminate those charters, and seize each offending corporation's assets for - ultimately - redistribution to the public trust.

    But I feel a similar rage, no doubt.
