ET Bureau Sep 23, 2011, 02.31am IST NEW DELHI: The Centre has urged the Supreme Court to stop monitoring the 2G spectrum case, as a chargesheet had been filed and the trial court had taken cognisance of the offence. However, CBI contended that its investigations in the 2G case was on and it could be monitored by the Supreme Court. CBI counsel KK Venugopal told a bench comprising Justice GS Singhvi and Justice AK Ganguly that investigations into the Essar-Loop issue and former telecom minister Dayanidhi Maran's role in the Aircel-Maxis deal was underway. So there is no difficulty in the SC monitoring the 2G case on these two aspects, said Venugopal.

History of Corporations (United States) When American colonists declared independence from England in 1776, they also freed themselves from control by English corporations that extracted their wealth and dominated trade. After fighting a revolution to end this exploitation, our country’s founders retained a healthy fear of corporate power and wisely limited corporations exclusively to a business role. Corporations were forbidden from attempting to influence elections, public policy, and other realms of civic society. Initially, the privilege of incorporation was granted selectively to enable activities that benefited the public, such as construction of roads or canals. Enabling shareholders to profit was seen as a means to that end. The states also imposed conditions (some of which remain on the books, though unused) like these*: History of Corporations (United States)

Contents Introduction to Corporate Personhood Our Bill of Rights was the result of tremendous efforts to institutionalize and protect the rights of human beings. It strengthened the premise of our Constitution: that the people are the root of all power and authority for government. This vision has made our Constitution and government a model emulated in many nations. Corporate Personhood-Demeaning Our Bill of Rights - Reclaim Democracy.org

Urge Congress To Reject The PROTECT IP Act Disgusting. Check out this ad the Recording Industry Association, the Motion Picture Association, and others just took out as they try to push their Internet censorship legislation: They think their customers should be treated like criminal suspects. Under the Internet Blacklist Bill -- S.968, formally called the PROTECT IP Act -- the Department of Justice would force search engines, browsers, and service providers to block users' access to websites that have been accused of copyright infringement -- without even giving them a day in court. We need to rally more opposition to this bill -- please use the form at right to email your lawmakers, and use these links to share the video and petition with your friends: Urge Congress To Reject The PROTECT IP Act
About the Patriotic Millionaires In Fall 2010, some of the country’s most financially successful citizens came together to urge the President to let the Bush tax cuts expire for people making more than $1 million per year. Today, the Patriotic Millionaires are a thriving group of 225+ members with over 180 million media impressions, leading the public charge on raising taxes on wealthy Americans – including themselves. Over the last two years, the Patriotic Millionaires have stormed Washington, DC with their tax message, debated anti-tax guru Grover Norquist, slammed self-interested politicians on tax-policies harmful to the middle class, delivered a press conference with the President, and worked shoulder-to-shoulder with the White House to pass the 2012 American Taxpayer Relief Act. In 2013, the Patriotic Millionaires will continue to dominate major media markets and renew pressure on Congress to reform the current tax system for the economic well-being of regular Americans.
