A Shocking Idea
Well the right hates Gay marriage...apparently love only comes in one form.

But they never mention a much worse form of marriage that is a horrible scouge on the American public.

I am of course talking about Corporate marriage.

As you know, Corporations are "citizens" under the law. This means they can be sued, somehow put in jail but they are allowed to get married all the time. Under the misnomer of "mergers" hundreds of corporations have married each other. Some with insanely disasterous results like when AOL married Time Warner.

It is time for Democrats to stand and call for an end to the shocking and immoral Corporate marriage.

1. But they don't care about corporate marriage
Because corporations don't call it "marriage", which is a "holy union in the eyes of God", blah blah blah.

Maybe gays should just demand to be "mergered", with all of the same rights that straights have when they're married, and that will keep the wingnuts quiet. :shrug:

5. I would like an ammendment that makes into law the
separation of business and state like the separation of church and state. Neither corporation nor church should be allowed to influence government and the vote and rule of the people.

7. rAmen
No donations shall be allowed from businesses to politicians either. The era of business buying votes for laws in their favor will be over.
