Artificial People by Rand Clifford + Thom Hartmann: Are Corporations People?

Corporate Personhood
By Helen Cox, used with permission.

Ray Davies, front man for the British rock band The Kinks, sang in 1974: “I can visualize the day when the world will be controlled by artificial people, but I don’t want to live a lie in an artificial world.”

The song is titled, Artificial Man, from the album, Preservation Act II. Ray Davies’ words were very apropos in 1974, even more so in 2010—especially with the fresh Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) ruling that dissolves any restrictions on the amount of money corporations may spend to influence elections. By overruling two important precedents regarding the 1st amendment (1) rights of corporations, the SCOTUS opened the floodgates, allowing unlimited corporate cash to inundate elections, thereby further depleting the already meager power of actual American people to choose our elected officials and influence America’s future course.

You, too, can let President Obama know how you feel about this issue.  Take action: http://www.whitehouse.gov/CONTACT/.  ~ DS

After Downing St
Aug. 17, 2009

Dear President Obama,

I understand you’re thinking of dumping your “public option” because of all the demagoguery by Sarah Palin and Dick Armey and Newt Gingrich and their crowd on right-wing radio and Fox. Fine. Good idea, in fact.

Instead, let’s make it simple. Please let us buy into Medicare.

It would be so easy. You don’t have to reinvent the wheel with this so-called “public option” that’s a whole new program from the ground up. Medicare already exists. It works. Some people will like it, others won’t – just like the Post Office versus FedEx analogy you’re so comfortable with.

Just pass a simple bill – it could probably be just a few lines, like when Medicare was expanded to include disabled people – that says that any American citizen can buy into the program at a rate to be set by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) which reflects the actual cost for us to buy into it.
