    This is an old article about a man protesting the idea that corporations are people.

    California man says he can drive in carpool lane with corporation papers -- NBC News (article link here)

    Basically, Jonathan Frieman intentionally drove in a carpool lane with his corporation papers. Police stopped him and gave him a ticket, saying that Frieman needed at least 2 people in the car to drive in the carpool lane. Frieman's defense is that a corporation is a person, so there were two people in the car.

    In reality, Frieman wants the courts to rule that corporations are not people, which would set an important legal precedence.

    The only problem I see is that someone could rule that it wasn't a corporation in his car, it was "corporation papers".

    Exactly. He'd have to strap his building onto the the roof. But then the police would say A) the second person has to be INSIDE the car, and B) he's being cited for not having the required oversized load permits, signage, and escorts.

    I still don't understand how someone can argue with a straight face that a corporation is a person. I think Bill Maher said it best, "when a person kills as many people as GM has killed, they're called a serial killer and put in jail." Our country has too many people in positions of power that believe corporations are people. That is exactly what's wrong with this country and why we've gone from a democracy to a Corporatocracy.

    The Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby Decision Isn't About Corporations—It's About Individuals - Hit & Run : Reason.com

    "The big question isn't whether the contraception mandate violates the religious freedoms of some faceless corporate entity entirely separate from the individuals who own that company—it's whether the requirement would violate the free exercise of religious for the particular people who founded and now run the company.

    As Alito writes in his opinion, "A corporation is simply a form of organization used by human beings to achieve desired ends....When rights, whether constitutional or statutory, are extended to corporations, the purpose is to protect the rights of these people."
