Because many of the mega monsters would already be DEAD.

Look at the body of a corpoRATion.

It is sickly.

The body/organs/muscle/circulatory system ( are in truly bad shape ). The blood circulation is very much restricted - the flow just mainly going to the top, while the rest of the body is starved.

The blood is filled with fatty cholesterol and the fats are all collecting up at the top.

Now fats in and of them self are not bad - the body needs a storage of fat as part of it's fuel reserve.

But when the fat is abnormally placed - collected in one spot - it can be very unhealthy to say the least.

So the blood flow and fats are mainly going to the top of the body while the rest of the body is starved and put under a heavy work load.

Can you say - Stroke(?) - Heart Failure(?) - Blocked arteries(?).

Anyway the point is coorpoRAT mega monsters if biological would be dying in droves or be undergoing emergency surgery to repair the imbalances that are threatening death.

Just sayin

Just sayin - we could attend the funerals and get on with life knowing that we need to keep corpoRATions on a healthy diet.

I will believe CorpoRATions are people when Texas executes one.

The problem would be in trying to get a conviction of a corpoRATion in Texas - or anywhere else for that matter.

I know! The laws/penalties have been rigged by the 1% corp plutocrats, just look at how goldman saks (& every other banker/bank) have gotten away with only fines, & no jail time.

It's disgusting! And the fines are so low they are a fraction of the amount stolen, and winds up being just the "cost of doing business". And the fines are probably deductable on next years taxes.

What a racket!

Racket is exactly RIGHT. The fines are like just a regular expense to be made to have exorbitant profits - just another small investment - no Biggy.

That is some real fin reg changes I haven't heard about from anyone.

We should definitely agitate for that.

This thought about fines being a joke is not new. But I have yet to see a campaign to change that fact. I have heard it kicked about - but no one taking it up and championing it.

This also comes down to the fact that Big money for almost all practical purposes - owns government and so to a large degree the justice/judicial system.

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

Yes. That is exactly it. It may be that we must 1st resolve the money out of politics problem 1st.

It truly is at the root of all our problems.

So 1st move to amend, Next real punishment/penalty for corp crimes. We gotta hold the individual execs legally responsible. They gotta fear 20 years in jail.

It's the only way to be sure"

They should fear the madoff makeover - riches to rags to prison for a century or more.

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

Funny. Madoff went to jail and most of his victims were very wealthy. No other fin guys who screwed the middle class even came close to a courtroom.

Disgusting.

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (24945) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

Disgusting. Is a very polite way of putting it.

Madoff may have been made an example an object lesson - stick to screwing those who have no money no power.

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

Definitely an inadequate example to shut people up. I have to look for any action on penalties for corp crimes. Someones got to be doing something on this. It's so big! And the outrage goes across the political spectrum.

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (24945) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

Any information would be helpful support to the Move to Amend campaign as well as others.

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

Exactly
