Feds found Pfizer too big to nail

Imagine being charged with a crime, but an imaginary friend takes the rap for you.
That is essentially what happened when Pfizer, the world's largest pharmaceutical company, was caught illegally marketing Bextra, a painkiller that was taken off the market in 2005 because of safety concerns.

And I thought Lady Justice was blind from the influence of money and/or corruption, and therefore fair. Boy, do I feel like a gullible ultra maroon. ;)

"Too big to nail" equals "too big to fail," lol. That's how monopolies in a so called "free market" become mafia-like gangs, I guess.

What’s the Difference Between Cancer and Donald Trump?

So-called “free market" or "unregulated capitalism” is really nothing more than the cancer-stage of capitalism. And that uninhibited cancerous growth has spread, so that now even our political system is infected with the cancer of corporatism.

Donald Trump’s candidacy is an example of how our political system is being eaten alive by the cancer-stage of capitalism.
