This may be hard for you believe, but corporations are artificial constructs.

Despite what you've been told, they are in no way shape or form alive.

For this reason alone, you're questions/statement are absurd.

I wish I could upvote this comment ten times shooz. These guys must have a list of logical falacies up on a board where they meet to take the king's dollar, and they just go round and round on them in the hopes of wearing us down.

My patience is growing thinner by the day with these kinds of threads.

They are deliberately inane.

Nope.

Stupidity hunt.

At least you admit you're insane. Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.

I flipped the magic 8 ball and it said your chances are not good.

Thanks for the successful stupidity hunt..............:)

Now that you've lost the ability to form sentence structure, I fear you are doomed.

Lost in a swirl of meaningless innuendo and lies.

Oh well.

LOL. He needs a lifeline!

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

You are clearly very popular!

Simple- they protest every day - with their checkbook.
STOPPING THAT should be OWS' first goal

[-] 2 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

You ridicule the peoples method of protest because as the corp shill you are expressing the fear they feel at the power of people protesting!

We know we are succeeding when you put down the most effective method we have.

"first they ignore you. They they laugh at you. Then they fight you. Then you win" MG

Your post is the "laugh at you" part. In the end we will win. Keep laughin.

I don't think so. You wanna cap profits?. I don't think you could get that done. But I support youreffort.

Good luck in all your good efforts.

[-] 2 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Cool. Good luck. You should appoint a spokesperson to talk directly to congress.

Better yet, you can be that spokesperson since you know the profit cap plan best.

Much success.

[-] 3 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

That is your misfortune.

Too bad you've alienated the only movement that might have supported you're idea.

Oh well, for what it's worth I'd say you were a perfect spokesperson for this excellent idea.

[Deleted]

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Yeah. Good idea. Just wait around. No rush. They'll always be profits to cap. And it's only been 45 years since the last movement.

Better make sure your kids are informed about the particulars of the plan.

Occupy is responsible for the solutions being discussed amongst our politicians, and the solutions that will come from the profound shift away from the right to the left.

This is the opposite of fear mongering propaganda that keeps the war on terror alive.

If you wanna repeal the rights violations and end the drone strikes support the beginning of the end of the "war on terror".

CorpoRATions do protest - they use mass media and put out propaganda/lies about how marvelous oil and coal and LNG and fracking are for everyone and the environment.

[-] 2 points by DanielBarton (1345) 1 year ago

corporations do protest by lobbying to government it is a way to protest. They arent right they just do it differently people in occupy can not afford to out wait them so they use protest to get the public attention to have people write to the congress

History Lesson needed for Corporations?

1) early European Corporations were Privateers much like Pirates, but with Royal Charters to allow them to Trade, capture slaves, steal gold, trade opium, .... basically the charter allowed them to steel resources, take land, and take whatever they captured from ships at which their nation was at war.

2) Corporations or their wealthy owners also proded congress to use the US Military to subdue US Native Indians, kill off the buffalo, and even sometimes possibly kill off women and childeren.

3) During the US Banana Wars Corporations got the US Military to subdue nations in the Carribean, Central America and Even South America ...later to become a policy called the Monroe Doctrine.

4) In the 19th Century Striking workers in the US were subdued by the Military and the Policy, but it appears that mostly it was city or state governments behind this. Remember US Workers had no rights at all, no safety conditions, no limit to hours worked, no minimum wage, no pension, women & underaged kids could be worked as long as any one else ... no right to strike or organize for better conditions, remember Chinese workers getting low wages and dying from conditions or explosions on the railroad (could they even quit or leave or was it slavery???/)

5) Slavery was a business or at least an institution to provide cheap labor to what might as well be called a corporation ... look how powerful the Southern Slavery Interests were in influencing the many US State governments to support slavery.

6) US Supreme Court Ruling in the 19th Century that Corporations are Entities/People had far reaching effects along with Neoliberal Policies and Campaign Finance Reform which seems to have legalized Soft Money, Political Action Commitees, etc.

7) By Default, the Lobbying of Congress has put every congressman in the pocket of Wealthy & Corporate Interests. See the grovelling of congressmen when Bankers appear to give testimony on financial scandals.

8) See what happened after the Keating Five Scandal ... After 5 Congressmen were proven to be covering up for Lincholn Savings and Loan ...Congress Learn "Never Investigate the People that are Your Biggest Contributors" -Bill Black

Someone has probably Written a proper History of Corporations ... for more info see my link on my profile to Big Picture Questions About Corruption ... I tried to look back at the first corporations on Wikipedia Articles.

They are too busy working and producing goods and making money?

[-] -2 points by SteveKJR1 (8) 1 year ago

Maybe the reason you never hear "corporations protesting" is because the people who are working in those corporations can accomplish what they want to do without protesting?
