Coincidentally today marks the 127th anniversary of 1886 Supreme Court Ruling in the “Santa Clara v. Southern Pacific Railroad case.”

Since then, in case after case, the Supreme Court has expanded the Constitutional “rights” of corporations, leading up to the Citizens United case in 2010.
All day today Nevada County Move to Amend is displaying freeway banners to commemorate the case, and to display a message of change.
