Fucking hell, seriously?

It'll only make national news if the murderer turns out to be white.

 

It looks like he's a Somali dude instead

 

 

Law enforcement officials told NBC News the suspect's name is Abdul Artan, an 18-year-old student at the university. He was a Somali refugee who left his homeland with his family in 2007, lived in Pakistan and then came to the United States in 2014 as a legal permanent resident of the United States, officials said.

Here are the reasons.   1) It might make Americans sympathetic to Philippines President Duterte. That's because Duterte = Trump > Hitler.   2) Because we have our own news story

Some guy took a selfie with the hijacker:

Turns out it wasn't an active "shooter". 

 

Just an immigrant who drove his car into a crowd of people and then got out and started knifing whoever he could reach. 

 

Probably still the NRA's fault, though.

Shrekli was fully justified in raising the price of that shitty drug. Maybe not to that extent, but he was justified.

A drug today costs $800 million and takes 10 years for development and approval, which is why they are patented. Daraprim is a drug is prescribed to ~8000 people in the US and there are better drugs for combatting it. Although the patent is off, no other company is willing to jump through the regulatory hoops to bother producing a drug that is not in common use.

Besides, his company focuses on treating rare diseases with low demand on the market, to do that he needs to raise funds and one of the ways to do it is to raise the price of a shitty drug that few use. In fact, the drug is discontinued in Canada because it's bad and there are better alternatives.

For some reason I can't get you an actual link to the video on mobile, but VICE's interview with him is very interesting. IIRC, he claimed the prike hike was only for big corporations like Wal-Mart; individuals could get the drug from Shkreli for free.

He obviously needs to hire a better PR person because that message was not getting out.

Even with better PR, 'muh big pharma' will drown out any message. At least with this, he got tons of publicity for his company. He probably didn't lose any sales at all anyway since his company produced drugs for those with rare disorders anyway.

Are you worried that Trump's presidency will usher in an era of fascism and tyranny, where the government does evil things like block its citizens' access to the Internet and censor protests?

Well, worry no more, because it's already like that, no Supreme Leader Donald required!

People who are protesting there should write a check to the government of North Dakota for the annual tax benefits their state gets from federal transfer payments, a portion of which comes from North Dakota.

You can't take the economic benefits while protesting how the money was made for you to get the benefits in the first place.

If you want to protest, write a check to the respective government forfeiting the benefits you get first. Until then, you have no right to protest.
