p.s. it is funny cause soccer doesn't mean anything to most americans.
That's scary (the AIDS thing). Who would do such a thing?
And, first REAL comment.
nu uh.. the p.s. statement was a REAL comment..
you're just jealous.
don't be hatin'
The Bayer thing is not true. A few years back some companies released "proof" that the Proctor & Gamble founders/CEOs were devil worshipers. This is the same thing. It's big companies drastically trying to destroy another company. Don't listen to the evil!!!!! :)
There's actually some truth to it, but nothing worth hyping. They didn't "know for a fact" that it was contaminated - it was produced and sold in the early to mid 80's, before a test for HIV had been developed. As more info about HIV was becoming available, it became clear that the method of producing Factor VIII carried a high risk of contamination with HIV. So it was pulled from the market in the US and replaced with a safer product.
As for selling the old product overseas, that's hard to justify. Even though they didn't *know* that it was contaminated, they knew it carried a higher risk than the new product. Company officials claim that many countries had not yet approved the new product, but that hardly seems like an excuse for continuing to sell the old stuff.

Most of the Law and Order shows have some truth to them in my experience.
as far as the first story, why exactly do these prisoners feel that their guards will actually care? I mean, isn't it kind of a RELIEF to them?!
lol. Seriously. I thought it was funny that they left enough to smoke.
I think one thing that they are overlooking as far as not being prosecuted, is the fact that any crime that they would be indicted for happened outside of American soil--it's beyond the jurisdiction of the American court system. People in America can only be tried for crimes committed in America or to Americans. If they shipped drugs illegally to France, or broke some rule in France, then it is up to France to press charges, not the US gov't. Since they pulled the drug here after realizing it was a problem and did not conform to USDA guidelines, they haven't really broken any laws here.
i don't believe it (the bayer thing). i had a lot of other stuff to say about corporate america being "corrupt" and government "conspiracies" and a bunch of other crap but i don't feel like it right now.
interesting, though! and very random :)
It is interesting and random. ;)
Did you read the articles linked above? They're very interesting.
All I can say right now is...wow. lol.
I had that posted on my LJ a few weeks back...
Is it true? Who knows....nothing surprises me anymore! And I don't put it past big corporations to do something like that.
I think you maay be who I grabbed it from. The ideaa realy REALLY horrifies me. I hope it's just spin.
God I hope it's spin.
OMG...I feel sick, litterally sick after watching that Bayer cover-up report... That's so disgusting, on so many levels... Fuck, why the hell would they do that??
Yeah. It's not cool.
there seems to be some controversy about it being true or not, but the two articles above are very informative, I thought.
Yay for world cup, yay for Team England
but um yeah stupid crimals, realy your in there not to have a good time, your missing world cup that should be good punishment for you teach you a lesson for being a crimal
i mean if they fall to the demands that like having a free hotel and board... oi
Bayer's still under investation, I suggest before boycotting it and such or writing angery letters and emails we should wait until the whole investation is done !
Because sometimes these news people blow rumours out of preportion or some other company slip in some flaws info who the reporters are following so they can do a take over
so until it's done reserver judgement
Well, having read some articles it is a little damaging..
