A thing occurred to me on the ride home, in what I'm certain is not an original thought. If Republicans:
1) Believe that corporations have the same rights as people, and
2) Believe that embryos have a right to life, and
3) Are consistent
Then declaring bankruptcy in a start-up should be against the law.
Fortunately (for them) I'm not too worried about #3 turning out to be true. So that's all right then.
