    Is Blackwater representative of Corrupt US corporations...the
    corporations the conservative, GOP led, appointed Supreme Court has recently handed a green light to soil the electoral politics of the USA?

    Is Blackwater (they changed their name to protect the guilty) not a corrupt US corp? Is it a corrupt multinational corp?

    If Blackwater is a corrupt multinational corp, will it be allowed to further it's corrupt corporate culture by further corrupting the American electoral process?

    Or do you think Blackwater is not corrupt? Maybe they are innocen of corruption in Iraq and at home. Maybe they are an example of the pride and joy of the American free market?

    Maybe we as Americans should be proud of Blackwater and the GOP led Supreme Court and thank the good lord that they can bring America back to the good old days when the Business of America was truly American Businesses.

    God Bless the Corrupt GOP Led Supreme Court of the United States of America.

    Are you serious? Not only did these goons mow down innocent civilians, but they got caught taking bribes. I would say that most of the "security" companies that sprang up like mushrooms after 9-11 were/are corrupt.

    since Xe is an individual now, can't we just put him on the no fly list and such?

    Blackwater Worldwide was an incorporated entity. Can they not be sued because they changed their name?

    btw, I mentioned (reading not your strong suit?) that Blackwater changed their name.
    D'oh!

    What exactly makes a corporation corrupt? I mean since you people have been arguing for the past two weeks or so that corporations aren't people (which still has nothing to do with the Citizens United ruling). So how on earth can an organizational concept have human qualities?

    Blackwater is where the sociopathic personalities we train in our military go to cash in on their black arts.

    It exists because we allow it to exist.

    I believe that it has moved its HQ out of the country just in case Congress grows a set of balls and sets out to rein it in.

    Mercenaries start our as tools of governments, but once unleashed, they become laws unto themselves.
