The Commoner.

Speaking for the common man. Voicing the concerns of those that appreciate the value of life and community, from the least to the greatest. Ringing the bell for Christian Democracy and Catholic Social Teaching in the US.

Dear Exxon, We’re the Same Now!

The Supreme Court says we’re exactly the same. I can lobby government (no, my letters aren’t answered), and you can lobby government (yes, your voice is well heard and followed). I can buy TV commercials for my favorite politician (yeah, no I can’t), and now you can too (yes you can). I can pay income taxes and payroll taxes and sales taxes (yes I do), and you can… (yeah, you don’t have to do that). Like they said, we’re exactly the same.
