    I find it most interesting, and ironic, that the ‘Supreme Court’ which ruled that corporations are persons had, just a few decades earlier, ruled that SOME persons were property! (Dred Scott decision, Fugitive Slave act). The US ‘Supreme Court’ could rightly be called “the gang that can’t shoot straight”. As it took a civil war to overturn the earlier bad decision, will it require another civil war to overturn ‘corporate personhood’? While it is commendable that the President has called for an amendment, it is noteworthy that there are other mechanisms for rejecting bad decisions:
    1) Impeachment proceedings could be brought against the culprit judges, whose replacements could then overturn the previous ruling. (The ‘Court of Impeachment’ being the US Senate, which in such case constitutes a HIGHER court than the so-called ‘Supreme Court’.
    2) The several States may pass Nullification Resolutions against the ‘Supreme Court’ decision– this mechanism is well established in American law (see Jefferson and Madison on the Kentucky and Virginia resolutions of 1799), guaranteed by the Tenth Amendment, and applies not only to bad legislation, but to bad Judicial decisions and bad Executive orders as well.
    I hope you can work these mechanisms into your efforts.

    It would take about 15 minutes since my guess everybody in the room will be on board and hopefully as a group/ organization Move To Amend Nevada County would endorse the CA Disclose Act.
