The corrupt corporate wing of the United States Supreme Court has ruled that a publicly traded, limited liability corporation is a person with all of the Constitutional rights of any human citizen, and more. The corporate or Koch Brothers wing of the supreme court is corrupted by big money, or it’s ideologically corrupt, or both. Okay, we know a corporation is a business, not a person, but exactly what are corporations?
A corporation can be defined as a group of investors (shareholders), but the Constitution gives only individual rights. It does not provide group rights. So the court couldn’t reasonably provide legal standing for personhood via this route.
A corporation, however, is really organized money. Investors combine their money, and organize it into a business via state charters. The Constitution does not give “organized money” legal rights.
State charters, however, refer to corporations as “artificial persons.” It’s on this basis that the court has ruled that corporations are persons. This, of course, is bogus, and the members of the court know this.
If we call dogs “imitation persons,” and a town or state provide legal recognition for this to occur, does this mean that dogs are persons with all the constitutional rights as actual citizens? Yes, it does, but only if the dogs possess enough money to influence the courts to make it so, like organized money.
If the court felt obliged to give dogs person-hood rights under this situation, that means you’d have to sit in a restaurant and watch the diner next to you eat their food while occasionally slurping their butt and scratching their fleas. To protect the civil rights of dogs, I mean these four footed persons, humans would need to be allowed to slurp their own butts in restaurants. Otherwise, anybody could sue any restaurant under the equal protection clause of the Constitution’s fourteenth amendment for the right to slurp their rear ends in public.
Fortunately, dogs don’t have sufficient cash to buy off the Supreme Court. So naturally, the court will never give dogs person-hood rights, even if another government body enacts a law calling dogs “imitation persons.” That’s why the concept that a government chartered “artificial person” is a real person is totally bogus. Every member of the Supreme Court knows this.
