Corporations are (Special) People
Dec 13, 2012

HSBC made billions of dollars in profits by laundering money for Dope dealers, and expediting Iran's purchase of American and European material.

They are being, err, severly punished... 

A 1.9 billion dollar fine!

Now that's ​a lot of money. ​It represents a four week profit lost! Boo hoo. Poor Babies have been forced to pay four weeks of their profits in fines.

Now there happen to be almost a million people in jail in the US for violating drug laws. And hundreds of people in jail for violating the sanctions against Iran. But HSBC doesn't have to worry about going to jail. Not even the executives responsible have to worry about going to jail. Nope, that would be wrong - It would be Class War to send these executives to jail. It would be ​worse than Communism​ to send these people to jail.

These are people damn it! We don't send people to jail for treason and dope dealing ​if they are "Special People!"
