Walmart for Senator

The Supreme Court of the United States did something that I though only God could do, they created a new human being.  According to the Supreme Court, there are now Men, Women, and Corporations.  Yup, Corporations are now people.  The Supreme Court created people corporations out of thin air.

Previously, the Supreme Court ruled that corporations are entitled to free speech rights and in just these past few months, ruled that Corporations have religious beliefs and are entitled to the religious freedoms enshrined in the Constitution.  Yes, Corporations are are now Christians.  This is the final transformation of corporations from man-made entities into Children of God.



If you doubt this, ask yourself what can you do that a corporation cannot?  Corporations can own houses and they pay taxes. Corporations can get sick (red ink and bankruptcy) and they can die (Dissolution by Proclamation).  When Corporations marry, we call that a merger.  Corporations can have children too, we call them subsidiaries and their families are called Conglomerates.
 
Now that Corporations have achieved person status, what will they do, run for President?  Not so far fetched.   Let’s start smaller and run for Mayor.  Here is how to do it.  First, create a corporation whose sole business is to run for Mayor.  Pick a corporate name that is electable like “Jennifer Government” (Jennifer Government is a book by Max Barry).  Then put up Jennifer Government as the candidate.  Promote her candidacy using the catchy nickname, JGov.  Can you imagine if the name chosen was Ford.  You wouldn’t know if you were voting for the Ford Corporation or Edsel Ford, Henry Ford’s great-grandson.

So then, it is a corporation who will hold the seat of Mayor not a person.  The Mayor’s Office becomes an asset of JGov.  JGov’s Board of Directors can choose the person who will act on behalf of the corporation as Mayor.  Probably get a title like Vice President of City Mayor.  If the Board does not like what the VP is doing, they can fire him and pick another person.  Voters will have nothing to say about this.

Soon after, JGov is running for more Mayorships.  There will be a Senior VP for East Coast Mayors, and another for West Coast Mayors and so on.  Eventually, JGov will run for Congress and for the Presidency.

Since it is the President who nominates and Congress who confirms Supreme Court Judges, JGov replaces the Supreme Court Judges with…Corporations.

Corporations seem to have a more solidified set of rights then many people... Frightening thought.
Sometimes it's not clear which is more worrisome, government overreach or corporate greed.

A Subway Journey Home

by The Urban Blabbermouth. Comments are welcome! ~ There is a ritual to theNew York City subway system. Once there, you lose your humanity.  You are transformed into a savage, brutal and selfish automaton.  Savage in that you push and shove other riders out of your way to get into the subway car.  Brutal in that you never excuse yourself for any atrocities that you commit to get in the subway car.  Selfish in that you never give up your seat to anyone, no matter how crippled or old or pregnant they are.  Automaton in that you never look at any one else as a human being.

Now there are certain strategies that you can employ to be a successful subway rider.  You can stand by the door and obstruct the way just to be selfish and ornery.  That strategy is designed to increase your standing with your fellow passengers by impressing them with how vicious you can be pushing back at people trying to push into the car.  Whenever I see this strategy employed, I immediately piggy back on it.  I move …

Im gonna git u Sukkah

by The Urban Blabbermouth [who may or may not be shown in the photo above... - v-E] ~ True story. I am walking to my car and I notice a couple of Jewish fellows, twenty somethings, with the bouquets of what looks like bamboo or palm. I know they are Jewish for they look Hasidic. They are wearing long black jackets, wide brim black fedora hats, and have curly sideburns. In truth, I classify all Jewish who dress like this as Hasidic although they may identify themselves differently. They are standing near the corner canvassing passersby.

Encyclopedia Brown Bear

At an age when other children decide to set up lemonade stands, Baby Bear decided to start a detective agency. His decision resulted from his experience in the Goldilocks home invasion. If you don't know this well-publicized crime case, Google Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Baby Bear wanted to become a policeman to help the other denizens of the Forest with their troubles and to maintain justice for all. Alas, the police did not accept children as applicants.

Baby Bear ran to his community library and borrowed the renowned guide, The Hardy Boys' Detective Handbook. Baby Bear spent the next twenty days, the library's lending period, studying the text. He chose the business name of "Encyclopedia Brown Bear Detective Agency" after his hero, Leroy "Encyclopedia” Brown. Baby Bear's dad hung the business sign across the garage door and opened a folding card table and four chairs in the entrance below.

On the first day, the Big Bad Wolf…
