The settlement regarding Juul is complete BS. They paid 40 million but how many hundreds of millions did they make by violating the rules?? No one has the guts to keep corporations in check.

Same as Google, Facebook and others.

Pay virtually pennies because fines haven't been updated for megacorps in way too long.

That's one thing that needs updating BADLY. Bigger fines for bigger corps. And court orders to fire CEOs and redistribute shares fairly and evenly.

Somewhat goodish news, both Ethiopia and Eritrea has withdrawn from Tigray region due to Blinken's ultimatum.

This might end up like a Somaliland situation, but at least the violence is going to be drastically decreased.

The mega corporations have the government by the balls literally... They got all the politicians paid off and protected from any real consequences of their crimes.

why isnt that brilliant man ie Carlin in the hall of fame already?? he was brash and brilliant, never afraid to tell the truth. unlike a cowardly orange who was idiotic, vain and brash.

Dave Chapelle might be considered the best comedian of all time but id only rank him as 2nd to the all time best: Carlin.

So Afghanistan is a crap show, always was. Not here to debate the reason why they started the war. It's more related how they left the local forces to handle the brunt of the terrorist forces. Handing over the largest air base that's pretty much useless is and isn't surprising. They want the Afghan forces to be able to defend themselves but have no hardware or electricity to manage it??? It does make sense to deny the enemy of a strategic base ready to operate but a slap in the face to those who need to make it now functional if they have the time to do it. It's true many local forces simply surrender while others stay and resist but it's like tossing your old iPhone out just because you bought the latest version... rather cold "not my war, not my problem" even though the US was the main combat force for 2 decades? I can't say that they shouldn't ever withdraw but they just dropped the Afghan forces like last week's trending topic and let fate decide.

Onto a different topic, it's good that the honest and trustworthy Perdue corporation only has to pay pennies to cover the billions of dollars they made with their opioid crisis... corporations at their finest...

Trump puts me in a weird position where I want the big tech companies to win, if only so they can be allowed to ban people who post harmful rheotric on huge public platforms.

All it takes to end billionaires in space is one person with a drone and a willingness to break things.

Just saying.

i just hope Bezos survives long enough to green light a new Stargate series as they bought up MGM recently. otherwise he is a piece of _____ that pays his workers slave wages and treats them just as equally.

This is where I ask:Random, result of failed herd immunity, or pre-existing conditions?

Because it's sure as **** not that vaccines don't work.
