it's not just pharmaceuticals. it's alcohol, tobacco, timber, cotton, latex and even the greedy bastards that made weed illegal to begin with, dow chemicals, when they invented nylon in world war two. ALL of those bastards bribe politicians to screw us over, as always, so they can get richer. when you hear some right wing moron talking about "smaller government, they're REALLY talking about deregulating and giving corporate scum even more leeway to pollute the earth, steal retirement funds, and gamble with our savings. corporate scum hate being told what to do.
THIS is why you should be joining on the occupy movement. it ALL boils down to the same thing... corporations screwing us over every way they can. even, if by a miracle, the sheep, i mean citizens of this country woke up, turned foxnews off, started digging for facts and demanding government serve US and not corporations, and weed was fully legalized, the pharmaceutical industry would STILL avoid it like the plague because they aren't out to cure shit. they want repeat customers. there's no profit in curing anyone.
i'm glad to see you're putting the pieces together on your own, but it's just one piece in a totally corrupt puzzle.
