"WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court on Tuesday morning appeared divided along party lines, with a conservative majority ready to hold that corporations cannot be held accountable in federal courts for international human rights violations."
--The Supremes are moving with lightning speed on this case, apparently fully aware that a delay in ruling might result in a massive PR issue. Of course, I didn't expect the Court to suddenly rediscover the Constitution. But everything becomes clearer when you understand that this ruling allows oil companies to hire gunmen and armies, and commit murder, without the slightest bit of liability or exposure. That's what happened in Kiobel v. Royal Dutch Petroleum.
So, if the court slams corporate personhood down our throats then the list of grievances justifying revolt becomes that much longer and more offensive. -- MCR
