    And rightly so! In it's natural state, government exists to either promote or restrict liberties. People of principle should stand up at every opportunity and make their case to ensure religious liberty is not taken away.

    Corporations are not people and I agree with the dissenting justices.

    What about a union, or fraternal organization or homeowners association, or any other legal entity created to represent a group, are they people? Or would you suggest that any collective group loses representative rights?

    I’m with Robert Reich on the corporations (“i’ll Believe corporations are people when Texas executes one”)

    i’m bad at boycotts, because I don’t shop enough to matter. Usually the places I would boycott I was already avoiding. (Dd finally hit to gonto a chick-fil-a with a friend in college and reported back to me “oh my god, their food sucks!”)

    there is a local grocery chain chain that would maybe notice if I boycotted them. I tried to boycott them once during a labor strike, but they resolved it so fast I didn’t need groceries.

    I don’t shop a lot so only the grocery store and where I buy the dog food, treats etc would ever notice.

    I am well aware that boycotting places I don't like won't impact them, but I feel like I have to live with my own moral code as best I can. So - no big box stores as much as possible, esp. WalMart. No Chick-fil-a, no Hobby Lobby, no local business that I know to be racist/misogynist/homophobic. Do they know or care? Of course not. We don't buy that much anyway (except coffee....) But if I can't be bothered to follow my own values, what does that say about me?

    Massachusetts has a ballot initiative this year "to consider and recommend potential amendments to the United States Constitution that corporations do not have the same Constitutional rights as human beings...."

    It will be interesting to see if this goes anywhere.

    That's good news. AZ is also a ballot initiative state and I'd love to see that happen here too.

    It will not go anywhere.
