Stupid political crap your friends post on facebook. - Page 154

post #2296 of 5454

Usually a whole heap of women's rights, gay rights anti racism crap. It's uncontroversial with a low intellectual curve.

Meanwhile, where did this idea come from that corporate personhood originated with the Citizens United ruling? Among other things, Corporations pay taxes, own property, and enjoy many other rights and responsibilities of people, and have for years. They are nothing but a group of people.

i dont understand either. all you have to do is read the citizens united vs FEC wiki page to know that the ruling didn't mention corporate personhood or even the 14th amendment...

There was a whole thread started by IDFNL where I tried to explain that point to him. He just doesn't understand it and refused to get it through his head. This "Corporations are people!" meme is deeply ingrained in a lot of this Huffington Post people and no amount of explanation will change that.

I have a similar friend - now being way over 50 and in the UK, and previously slating politics and government. I found this highly odd lol.

Okay, not FB, but my little sister just sent out a group email. She's a Baptist fundie and outraged the new lesbian Premier of Ontario was not "elected by the people." The problem with that is premiers are not elected by the people. Ever. They become the premier by being the head of the part that gets the most seats in a provincial election.

Nice try Paultard but your link doesn't support your rhetoric in the least.

It's about to get to the point where I block the updates of anyone who insists on posting political memes every day. I already blocked a guy who is posting anti abortion crap every day. I don't mind people who post news stories and commentary, but this bumper sticker crap is starting to wear on my last nerve.

Same girl that I've been posting stuff from has been spree-posting 1%er memes for the last couple weeks. I mean, I get the outrage and all, but you probably shouldn't have gone into theater if you didn't want to be poor.

I could say the same about the friend I have who wants to be a kindergartner teacher and does the same thing. Also, she's still in school, but it is only her 9th year, so no big deal really.
