Corporations and LLCs require people to exist.
Go back to school.

While we're at it, let's oust Tim Eyesore and Thug Ericksen from Washington State. ITMFA!
@2 & @5: Will in Seattle for the WIN.
@3 & @4: Stop mistaking video games for education and FOX TeeVee for a reliable news source.

Every Democrat opposes corporate money in political campaigns UNTIL they're favorite candidate gets corporate backing. In other words, the Democrats are pieces of sh1t who have no political principles.

The super rich engage in that "nesting doll" behavior all the time to hide their wealth from the tax man. It's only a pain for the accountant they hire to set it all up, it requires no actual effort on the rich persons part.
