Help complete this sentence: "I'll believe a corporation is a person when..."

In commemoration of the second anniversary this Friday of the Citizens United decision which extended never-intended rights of people (personhood) to corporations, your help is needed to complete the sentence below.

A list will be compiled and send Thursday night. It can then be read if desired by organizers of the Occupy the Courts events in Columbus, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Akron and Toledo. For those unable to attend any one of the events, you can forward the completed list to your own email lists, Facebook page or blog — as a way to commemorate the day wherever you are.

“I'll believe a corporation is a person when...
[Add to the list]
... Arizona deports one

... one gets a STD after jumping in bed with an elected representative

... one sacrifices its life in military service
... one is awarded the Nobel Peace Prize
