Corporations are People, My Friend

When Jonathan Frieman of San Rafael, Calif., was pulled over for driving alone in the carpool lane, he argued to the officer that, actually, he did have a passenger.

 He waved his corporation papers at the officer, he told, saying that corporations are people under California law.

 Frieman doesn't actually support this notion. For more than 10 years, Frieman says he had been trying to get pulled over to get ticketed and to take his argument to court -- to challenge a judge to determine that corporations and people are not the same. Mission accomplished in October, when he was slapped with a fine -- a minimum of $481.

“Just imagine what THAT courtroom scene’ll be like,” he wrote.

He imagined what he might say to the judge: “Your honor, according to the vehicle code definition and legal sources, I did have a ‘person’ in my car. But Officer so-and-so believes I did NOT have another person in my car. If you rule in his favor, you are saying that corporations are not persons. I hope you do rule in his favor. I hope you do overturn 125 years of settled law.”

    way of content so people could connect with it better.

    I comment when I especially enjoy a article on a site or I have something to contribute to the conversation.
    It is caused by the sincerness communicated in the article I read.
    And after this post "Corporations are People, My Friend".
    I was actually excited enough to write a commenta response :
    -) I actually do have 2 questions for you if you
    tend not to mind. Could it be just me or does it look like like a few of the remarks come across like coming from brain dead folks?
    :-P And, if you are writing at other online social sites, I would like to keep up with everything new you have to post.
    Would you make a list the complete urls of all your communal sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
