It really does invite the cruelest side of capitalism to unveil.

Trey Gowdy, one of those most outspoken and visible republicans in the country right now, just took a dump on Trump.

DWV, the older you get the more closed the window into your ideology becomes. The concrete hardens more and more with each passing year. At this point (turned 58 today - YAY!!!) there's a number of fundamental things, subjects, positions, etc. that I'm steadfast in, i.e., not open anymore for debate.

I've said this a number of times, I didn't sign up for a debate club. If you disagree with one of my positions, fine. Just stop trying to subtlety make me out as a dullard for holding them.

You should take your own advice and quit trying to challenge other people's stances then.

Maybe you and all the people your age who you personally know and who influence your idea of how people react to aging should should just stick to smiling and looking wrinkly.

unless im misunderstanding here.. hypothetically I could make a drug, ensure that it doesn't kill animals or 20 people and then, without any actual studies done on specific condition or disease treatment, say it might cure your cancer and sell it to dying people?

who's responsibility is it to market/administer these drugs? is it doctors recommendations or just some guy in a van driving to hospices selling death sticks?

You can already do that a la alternative medicine, but those with the authority to distribute medicine (docs) can lose their jobs for prescribing non-approved treatments.

The company is the one that markets the drugs/treatments to the doctors (and patients for brand awareness) who are now authorized to prescribe them.

The Fed just proposed a plan to make life easier for banks by loosening the 'Volcker Rule'

Would be a good move imo, this rule has contributed quite a bit to the corporatization of the banking industry (well, more corporate than past decades, that is).
