If People Were Corporations

Since companies are granted the rights and privileges of citizens then it would follow that people be given the same rights as corporations. The fact is American corporations have rights and privileges that people would love to have.

From a financial and economic perspective: People pay taxes on their world wide income. For instance if you did work in Canada or Mexico you would be required by law to declare that income and pay taxes on it. American corporations are not required by law to pay taxes on their incomes providing they don't bring that money back to the US.

According to Martin Sullivan the chief economist at tax analysts, if people were treated like corporations I could set up and affiliate and call it El Rondo Corp Mexico have it pay my college tuition and then declare that the affiliate owns the owns the resulting degree. I could then tell the IRS that everything I earn above the average high school grad's income should be recorded and income in Mexico, since it is all derived from a Mexican based asset.

On federal income tax forms individuals can deduct sales taxes they paid or state income taxes they paid but not both but companies can deduct both.

As to gay marriage: If people were treated like corporations we would be able to "merge" with whomever we want with no concern about restrictive marriage laws according to UCLA law professor Adam Winkler.

Here's the best part! Even if you stole a house, raided pension funds, killed someone, funded a genocidal regime like big pharma or terrorized the global economy you wouldn't go to jail.

The Medical Industrial Complex Works for God

Spine Implant Company Used Hookers and Strippers as Kickbacks, Case Claims

Last Updated Jun 2, 2011 7:11 PM EDT

Faced with a case in which Blackstone Medical sales reps allegedly provided prostitutes and strippers to doctors who agreed to use its spinal implants, a federal appeals court has ruled that the trial judges underneath them have applied the false claims and anti-kickback statutes too strictly.

The ruling follows a string of at least seven federal court decisions which have required that conspirators expressly acknowledge they are breaking the law when fraudulently applying for reimbursement from the federal government for medical expenses. For all practical purposes, this high technical bar meant that Medicare, insurers and healthcare coverage providers would have to find a written confession in order to demonstrate they were being ripped off. As such, the decisions virtually legalized drug price inflation through fraud and kickbacks.

The case, brought by former Blackstone regional manager Susan Hutcheson, features such spectacular allegations of wrongdoing that it would have left the First Circuit appeals court looking ridiculous if it had agreed with the Massachusetts trial judge's decision to dismiss the case for "failing to state a claim."

Hutcheson alleges that Blackstone paid spine doctors between $1,666 and $8,000 a month to make sure they used Blackstone's implants in their surgeries. Although the payments were officially to recruit surgeons for Blackstone's "medical advisory board," the company expressly linked the payments to sales of its products for the physicians' surgeries, Hutcheson claimed. Doctors who stopped using the devices were admonished by company reps and then dropped from the payment list, Hutcheson claims. All advisory board contracts were signed by BMI presidentMatt Lyons, Hutcheson claims.

The Department of Justice supported the case with an amicus brief, perhaps because it noticed that Hutcheson alleged Blackstone executives destroyed documents when they believed they were under investigation by the feds.

"Shredding documents 24 hours a day"
In the summer of 2006, a Blackstone distributor learned that St. Dominic's hospital in Jackson, Miss., was conducting an internal probe of a doctor who had taken payments from the company. After Blackstone declined to provide documents to St. Dominic's to help them with their inquiry, the hospital contacted the FBI. At that point the executive allegedly told Hutcheson he was "shredding documents 24 hours a day."

The scheme was so thorough -- Hutcheson lists all the doctors allegedly on Blackstone's payroll -- that it became burdensome for sales reps to execute. Each month they had to create a fictitious paper trail of "engagements" with the doctors to justify paying them the stipends, she claims. One rep, sales manager Brian Dukate, allegedly complained to vp Paul Sendro, "I cannot just make things up out of thin air":

Surgeons at a strip club
The scheme reached its tawdry nadir in Dallas, where reps procured hookers for doctors, the suit alleges. One female rep even allegedly partied with her customers at a strip club:

At the district court level, the trial judge followed previous rulings by saying that Hutcheson did not prove the stipends were kickbacks because when the doctors made reimbursement claims to Medicare they did not expressly link them to the cash they supposedly received from Blackstone. The appeals court threw that logic out in favor of a common-sense test that requires judges to look at all the facts at hand:
First, we reject the argument that, in the absence of an express legal representation or factual misstatement, a claim can only be false or fraudulent if it fails to comply with a precondition of payment expressly stated in a statute or regulation.

Second, we reject the argument that a submitting entity's representations about its own legal compliance cannot incorporate an implied representation concerning the behavior of non-submitting entities. These purported limitations do not appear in the text of the [False Claims Act] and are inconsistent with our case law.

... nor do we adopt any categorical rules as to what counts as a materially false or fraudulent claim...
The First Circuit is now in conflict with the Seventh Circuit on this issue -- a divide that only the U.S. Supreme Court can decide to resolve.

Sacrificial Lamb?

God is all knowing. True or False?

Jesus is God. True or False?

Both God the Father and God the Son knew that Jesus would not perish and that he would be in heaven and come back in corporeal form. How is this a sacrifice? Answer... It isn't.

Let's break down John 3:16

John 3:16 King James Version (KJV)

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

"For God so loved the world"... No he doesn't. Look at all the suffering and disease all living things endure. If that is love_______________!!! Fill in the blank.

 "...that he gave his only begotten Son,"  No he didn't!

that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Everyone has everlasting life according to the Bible. Either they go to heaven and stroke God's ego for all eternity or they suffer in hell for all eternity. Nobody actually perishes. God would not want to miss out watching all the people who did not kiss Jesus' ass suffer in hell.

Caveat: Nothing in the Bible was written by Jesus.

The Jews are NOT promoting brain washing children in military training camps, teaching them how to blow themselves up and cause maximum deaths of Jews and other non Muslims. The Jews don't hijack planes, nor kill athletes at the Olympics, or blow themselves up in German restaurants.

There is NOT one single Jew who has destroyed a church. There is NOT a single Jew who protests by killing people.

The Jews don't traffic slaves, nor have leaders calling for Jihad and death to all the Infidels.

Perhaps the world's Muslims should consider investing more in standard education and less in blaming the Jews for all their problems.

Muslims must ask 'what can they do for humankind' before they demand that humankind respects them.

Regardless of your feelings about the crisis between Israel and the Palestinians and Arab neighbors, even if you believe there is more culpability on Israel 's part, the following two sentences really say it all:

"If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more violence. If the Jews put down their weapons today, there would be no more Israel" - Benjamin Netanyahu

General Eisenhower Warned Us. It is a matter of history that when the Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, General Dwight Eisenhower, found the victims of the death camps he ordered all possible photographs to be taken, and for the German people from surrounding villages to be ushered through the camps and even made to bury the dead.

He did this because he said in words to this effect:

'Get it all on record now - get the films - get the witnesses because somewhere down the road of history some bastard will get up and say that this never happened'

Recently, the UK debated whether to remove The Holocaust from its school curriculum because it 'offends' the Muslim population which claims it never occurred. It is not removed as yet. However, this is a frightening portent of the fear that is gripping the world and how easily each country is giving into it.

It is now more than 60 years after the Second World War in Europe ended.

This e-mail is being sent as a memorial chain, in memory of the, 6 million Jews, 20 million Russians, 10 million Christians, and 1,900 Catholic priests who were 'murdered, raped, burned, starved, beaten, experimented on and humiliated' while the German people looked the other way.

Now, more than ever, with Iran , among others, claiming the Holocaust to be 'a myth,' it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets.

This e-mail is intended to reach 400 million people.
Be a link in the memorial chain and help distribute this around the world.

How many years will it be before the attack on the World Trade Center 'NEVER HAPPENED' because it offends some Muslim in the United States ?

Do not just delete this message; it will take only a minute to pass this along.

God, Jesus and the Bible Approve of Slavery

Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederate States of America
“(Slavery) was established by decree of Almighty God…it is sanctioned in the Bible, in both Testaments, from Genesis to Revelation… it has existed in all ages, as been found among the people of the highest civilization, and in nations of the highest proficiency in the arts.”

He was not alone in his feelings. In fact, he may have gleaned this belief from his pastor or minister! Many pastors at the time espoused the same belief as Jefferson and preached this belief from the pulpit!

Reverend R. Furman (a South Carolina Baptist Minister in the 19th century)
“The right of holding slaves is clearly established in the Holy Scriptures, both by precept and example.”
