I've been sitting here for about two hours and twenty minutes waiting to get a comment on the show. I may be able to mention this to Thom, but I'm not counting on it.
I believe that the corporation money in our political system is at the root of most of the problems we are facing. Here's my proposal: One of our State Legislatures should pass a law stating that corporations are not people. Of course this would create a huge uproar as it did with the Arizona immigration law - but that's the idea. "Corporate Personhood" will never see the light of day in Washington, D.C., it will be blocked by both (bought and paid-for) sides. This approach side-steps D.C. and brings the issue to the front of the public conscieness and possibly to the Supreme Court. Let's get this out in the open and get the issue settled.
I realize that the Supreme Court has given some rights of humans to corporations, but as yet they have not grated full 'personhood'.
