Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, February 17, 2019

Employees at a drug company accused of bribing doctors rapped and danced around a person dressed as a bottle of the highly addictive fentanyl spray in a video meant to motivate sales reps into getting patients on higher doses. The video was shown to jurors this week in the closely watched trial in Boston of wealthy Insys Therapeutics Inc. Founder John Kapoor and four other onetime executives, including a former exotic dancer who prosecutors say was hired as a regional sales manager even though she had no pharmaceutical experience.

What Stage of Capitalism Is This?

Normal late stage Capitalism in which nothing matters except profits, least of all other people than yourself and family, especially foreigners.

What is the point of having Governments, Corporations and Churches and Non-profits unless they are capable of fulfilling our constitutional mandate to promote the general welfare? Creating tiny classes of super-wealthy individuals while a quarter of the country goes without decent health care and half the country without a decent education or job represents an abysmal systemic structural failure of organization and purpose.

The simplest place to start fixing this problem in the political arena is public funding of all campaigns, but not to enrich those with broadcast licenses. Political discussion should be monopolized and funded entirely on our public broadcast system, which should be paid for entirely with taxes.

Otherwise the will and best interests of the people that work to make the USA the innovative manufacturing power it can be will be consistently ignored.

It's kinda like the meat industry right before Teddy Roosevelt said "hell no" to the Chicago stock yards.

Corporations should have to demonstrate, on a yearly basis, that they operate in the best interest of the people and if they don't they should lose their corporate charter and be dissolved.
And that's not my idea, it was the founding fathers' idea.
