David Cobb

I saw David Cobb yesterday.  Who, you may ask?  I did check when I got home, to see what his bio said on Wikipedia.

I went to learn more about "Move to Amend" ...the US Constitution to declare that corporations aren't people and money isn't speech.  (See here for more info on that action.)

I listened in awe to a great performance, a speaker who held his audience spell-bound, and convinced most of them to join up.  Maybe most of them were already decided when they came to the talk.  I sure learned what it is all about.  I also got a bit tired sitting.

That's the limitations of my body these days.

I was happy to have my picture taken with David along with several of my friends from church. It wasn't till today that it sunk in that I had had a former Presidential candidate's arm around me for that picture (Green Party.) Mmm, will this come back to bite me?  Who knows.  It was a great experience to listen to a charismatic speaker.  I haven't made up my mind whether I'll do more than follow the progress of this effort from the sidelines.

Here's my picture with David, Geoff, Roberta and Helen.  It will be officially shared in our UUCSV newsletter at the beginning of July.

I have some other interesting pictures of a timeline which gives various legal decisions that impacted people v. corporations ever since the Constitution. I posted it here.
