Conservative originalists are rethinking their narrow reading of the 14th Amendment.
By David Gans and Doug Kendall
Justice Antonin Scalia created a firestorm last winter when he opined that the 14th Amendment does not protect women against discrimination on the basis of sex. The truth is that this view has been, until recently at least, a bedrock conviction of conservative originalists. In that sense then, the bigger news came at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in October when, confronted on his remarks by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, Scalia backpedaled and suggested that the Equal Protection Clause did indeed protect women from state-sponsored discrimination on the basis of sex. For a Justice famous for his blunt and unchanging conservative views, Scalia’s fancy footwork was fascinating, and telling.
This just in! Donkey's are flying and H*ll froze over!!!
Corporations weren't born with a brain a heart or a soul, people were.
Most people do know right from wrong. Corporations can never be people unless they are sociopaths. Then they would need to have strong structures to keep them from doing harm to others. Just as we have structures for people when they do harm.
