Here in the USA we had lawyers bring suits against big tobacco and win, so a lot of states got more money, along with a few lawyers because big tobacco lied about how harmful tobacco was. So who pays this, the people who smoke since part of the agreement was that all tobacco companies had to pay and all had to charge the higher price. Did it punish big tobacco no they are making even more.
Our government goes after Microsoft and settles with them, so again the lawyers get thereâ€™s, some states who were part of the settlement gets thereâ€™s, and the federal government gets thereâ€™s; but who pays the customers who buy windows since all Microsoft did was raise the price. The still control most of the operation system software in usa.
Our government and little Bush start a program that says â€œno child left behindâ€ based on the Huston Texas schools and make it the law of the land, only to find out that Huston cheated on the scores and were not as good as other schools. Now 99% or better of our school teachers will tell you that the â€œno child left behindâ€ is not working and keeping them from teaching what the kids need.
Old Bush tell Saddom that we have no treaty to come to the aid of Kuwait, If he invades, so he does and we then not only make him get out; but for years now have done everything we can to see that the country with the second most oil in the world cannot sell much. Little Bush uses the weapons of mass destruction to invade Iraq and keep the oil off the market for years to come. At the same time they are telling us that all of a sudden China is using much much more oil so that is why the price is so high. Any other country would have removed Little Bush from office and brought charges against him, but not us we just pay more for gas. A lot more
We wander why the rest of the world thinks we are stupid. Itâ€™s simple we allow our government to make fools of us so we do look stupid.
I have never smoked and it cost me nothing but every time I see someone pay 3 dollars or more for a pack I think how stupid we are to let lawyers and our government pick out pockets and not do a thing about.
A great man said it this way â€œStupid is as Stupid Doesâ€
