Verizon and MetroPCS Accuse FCC of Violating Free Speech
Are these companies 'natural people'?
These corporations pay taxes under corporate tax law, not individual tax law. These corporations are owned by their shareholders. These corporations do not have the right to vote and these corporations are not eligible for OASDI (old age, survivors, and disability income), Medicare/Medicaid, and these corporations cannot receive payments directly from the government under the unemployment programs in place. How would a corporation handle the right to bear arms, would they hold a weapon in the left hand or a right hand? What color eyes does the corporation have? How could the corporation be imprisoned in its entirety?
Simply put, I don't believe the 'freedom of speech' would hold up in court, especially when they want to be able to limit the speech of their customers (from using services not developed or sanctioned by the corporation) and many of their customers are natural people. It seems to me that their free speech argument actually ascertains why individual people who are customers of the corporations need to be able 'to voice over the electronic microphone'.
