“This corporation is listed on Dunn & Bradstreet and as with all corporations, it’s first and only fiduciary duty is to make a profit.  This corporation is the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS).”

The recent decision by the Supreme Court, based on the claim that the free speech of business would be impaired if corporations were not allowed to finance campaigns directly, instead of having to do things like say…..making a massive contribution in the name of each and every employee or creating soft money PAC’s to make sure their candidate was awash in funding, is no longer necessary.  This would more rightly have been called a “paperwork reduction” ruling.  Corporations no longer have to find ways to hide their massive funding of candidates receptive to their agendas.

Corporations are persons under the law.  They have more rights than a real individual has.  Remember that the next time you hold a product of any sort in your hand, or, you purchase a service; you are actually holding or using the essence of a person.  I know it is so because the Supreme Court has said that it is.  These products and services are the same as a living, breathing human being, so treat them with care.

This decision, which amounted to nothing more than judicial prostitution for corporate profits, was rendered by…you guessed it……a corporation.  This corporation is listed on Dunn & Bradstreet and as with all corporations, it’s first and only fiduciary duty is to make a profit.  This corporation is the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS).

So who profited and in what way?  More

“The BLM mismanages our public lands for one reason: to benefit commercial interests, such as cattle ranchers and other industries that exploit our lands and profit from the removal of the horses,” Katz continued.

Sacramento Horse Advocates Hold Rally Against Wild Horse Roundups

Sacramento, Calif (January 19)— Wild horse advocates from In Defense of Animals (IDA), The Cloud Foundation, and other members of the American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign Coalition, will hold a rally Thursday, January 21, at 11 a.m. in front of the State Capitol Building, to call attention to the Obama Administration’s massive roundup and removal of wild horses from public lands in the West.  The largest of such roundups is currently underway in the Calico Mountains Complex, known as the National System of Public Lands, in northwestern Nevada. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is removing over 2,500 horses, or 80 to 90 percent of the horses living in the Calico Complex.  To date, four horses have died in the Calico roundup, which began on December 28 and continues through February.

What:   Rally for America’s Wild Horses                                                              
Where: State Capitol, 10th Street between L and N
When:  Thursday, January 21, 2010, 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Press Conference at 12 noon 

“The environmental assessment, which led the BLM to conclude that the horses should be removed, was wholly inadequate,” explains Ginger Kathrens, executive director of the Cloud Foundation. “BLM did not analyze the impacts of cattle grazing in the Calico Complex. When asked why, the agency said ‘this issue is outside of the scope of this environmental analysis.’ How convenient then, that wild horses can be blamed for range damage, and then removed at a cost of millions to the American taxpayer.” More
