crucial difference

"...corporations have no consciences, no beliefs, no feelings, no thoughts, no desires. Corporations help structure and facilitate the activities of human beings, to be sure, and their “personhood” often serves as a useful legal fiction. But they are not themselves members of “We the People” by whom and for whom our Constitution was established."
Justice John Paul Stevens, dissenting opinion, Citizens United v Federal Election Commission


For the love of gob, who can argue with a straight face that "corporate speech" needs protecting?


That would be the Supreme Court of the United States of America.

Quis custodiet custodias? as the old-timers used to mumble.
