Contact: gparty@pbcgreenparty.org

On January 21st, 2010 the Supreme Court of the United States re-affirmed that Corporations have the same Constitutional rights as people (Citizens United v FEC). In commemoration of that decision there will commence a national search for the ideal corporate groom for a mere mortal, Ms. Sarah “echo” Steiner, who has made it clear that she intends to take the Supreme Court at its word and honor her marriage when she finds a suitable candidate.

The search is on. A press conference will kick off the event on Saturday, January 22, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. at the Little Owl in Lake Worth, Florida located at 527 N. Dixie Highway. At this time, Ms. Steiner is expected to announce her decision to search for a suitable corporation to marry. There have been rumors circulating that a number of potential corporate grooms are already in the running (including green colored corporate persons).

So mark you calendars, tell your friends, and spread the word: if corporations are persons, then let us celebrate the end of discrimination against them by permitting them to get married just like everyone else… well, almost everyone else. See you there!!!

This event is sponsored by Florida Move to Amend, Palm Beach County Green Party, and Progressive Democrats of America, Florida. For more information on Move to Amend, go to http://www.movetoamend.org.

    The US Supreme Court did not say that corporations have the same rights as persons, in Citizens United v FEC. The people who say this are just spreading ignorance.

    The First Amendment has always protected group speech as well as the speech of individuals. This is because of the way it is worded…”Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech.” It doesn’t matter who the speaker is; all speech is protected. As long ago as 1964, the US Supreme Court ruled in New York Times v Sullivan that newspapers, which are often corporations, are protected by the free speech clause. Also in 1978 the US Supreme Court ruled that the First Amendment protects the right of corporations to speak about ballot measures, in First National Bank of Boston v Bellotti. The old debate about corporate personhood relates to the 14th amendment, not the 1st amendment. I have a lot of respect for the Green Party, but this is one place where the Green Party is not being scholarly and is not being accurate.

    By treating the issue as a first amendment case, the court is saying the speech of corporations is on the same level as that of individuals. That is not the case. This was a commerce issue solely, and if corporate speech is protected by anything it should be the commerce clause.

    Yes, some corporations are chartered to publish information, some are not. That does not mean they have a right to free speech, as treating the issue as a first amendment issue strongly implies. Nor does it alter the fact that corporation have had rights recognized under the first, fourth fifth and fourteenth amendments.

    This is actually a good news release.

    Short and to the point, and whimsical enough to be remembered. Tongue-in-cheek humor tends to be remembered, and quite possibly picked up by a mainstream news source.

    Quite the opposite of the long rambling release I commented on yesterday.

    PEACE

    Figures a woman only wants a big corporation. No love for the small business from the Greens, must be that idea that we small business owners like our private property.

  5. Size Matters

    So, she wants a well-endowed corporate entity that can split her in two after it consumates the acquisition?

    Latest version of this press release we received has much of the same information, but includes some new language:

    “The court’s ruling has opened the door to the union of corporate and human persons in ways that were never imagined before,” said the
    Bride. “But, frankly, I’m wondering who’s going to be on top on the wedding night.”

    P) My corporate sources tell me they will attempt a back door takeover, leverage the stocks and bondage and then do a split down the middle.

    But that’s just what I heard.

    Press conference:
    Saturday, January 22, 2:00 pm
    Little Owl, 527 N. Dixie Highway
    Lake Worth, Florida

    First Ever Marriage to a Corporation Contemplated by Single, Female, 39.

    The Search for a Corporate Husband will Commemorate the 1st
    Anniversary of the Supreme Court Ruling Re-affirming Corporate
    Personhood.

    One year ago on January 21, 2010, the Supreme Court of the United
    States reaffirmed that corporations have the same constitutional
    rights as people (Citizens United v FEC). In commemoration of that
    decision there will commence a national search for the ideal corporate
    groom for a mere mortal, Ms. Sarah “echo” Steiner. Ms. Steiner has
    made it clear that she intends to take the Supreme Court at its word
    and honor her marriage when she finds a suitable candidate.

    Members of the press are cordially invited to join the Bride as she
    formally announces her intention to seek a corporate partner and to
    unite one heart and one corporate charter in love forever (or not). A
    press conference will kick off the search for a corporate groom on
    Saturday, January 22, 2011.

    There have been rumors circulating that a number of potential
    corporate grooms are already in the running (including green corporate
    persons). Once a suitor has been found, the Bride and her future
    corporate husband will announce their plans to marry in a public
    ceremony.

    “The court’s ruling has opened the door to the union of corporate and
    human persons in ways that were never imagined before,” said the
    Bride. “But, frankly, I’m wondering who’s going to be on top on the
    wedding night.”

    “If corporations are persons, then let us celebrate the end of
    discrimination against them by permitting them to marry just like
    everyone else … well, almost everyone else,” says Carla Christianson
    of Move to Amend Florida.

    But Suki DeJong of the Palm Beach County Green Party has expressed
    concern for the inevitable consequences of the Supreme Court’s ruling.
    “There just aren’t enough corporations to go around,” said DeJong.
    “Sure, it’s okay for Ms. Steiner, but what about the rest of us? I’d
    like to marry one myself. On the other hand, those things can live
    forever. They’re not like real people.”

    The bride will be given away by Florida Move to Amend
    (http://www.movetoamend.org

    ). Her bridesmaids will be members of the
    Palm Beach County Green Party and Progressive Democrats of America,
    Florida.
