One good thing about Trump, he's far more likely to decide big pharma needs to be beaten with a stick and forced to make new antibiotics

Trump is of the opinion that vaccines are involved with autism. I don't think he's going to be doing too much to "big pharma".

Which is odd since he is a known germaphobe. One would think he of all people would be interested in both vaccines and new antibiotics.

and this guy's life is ruined. Unconscionable.

Perhaps he shouldn't have been engaged in criminal activity and his life would be just fine.

What's unconscionable is people thinking criminal acts should be defended and one's personable responsibility should never enter into the equation.

It's been known for years Theranos is nothing but a scam. They have never allowed anyone to try and replicate their results, have never submitted their tests to government scrutiny, have never done anything to show their tests do what they claim they do.

It's a bit late for Arizona to be suing the company now, right when it's about to go bankrupt. At least go after Holmes for the fraud she's been perpetuating all this time because there's little left of the company.

This is similar to a bank accidentally adding $1,000 to your bank account, you go spend that money because it's in your account, then you get penalized for spending something which wasn't yours in the first place.

Anyone with at least two brain cells should have known something wasn't right when they pulled down a 53GB download for an update file. 53 MB, maybe, but not 53GB.

What is mine is mine and what is yours is yours. Now kindly keep your nose out of other people's business.

Funny, I keep saying the same thing about my money being taken from me to pay for the medical costs of smokers, alcoholics and drug users yet am told I have no choice. My money must be handed over or forcibly taken from my bank account if I don't.

Sticking noses in other people's business seems to be a thing when it's something you want.

So they're doing what Trump has done all along? Calling women he's assaulted ugly, whining how he's made to look bad when his own words and deeds are reported, calling someone else corrupt when he himself is a corrupt con artist?

You mean the DNC is doing the exact same thing the Republicans are doing? How shocking!

I've heard the vulgarity of our entertainment defended with the claim that it reflects society

Considering people use the word 'fuck' whenever they fell like it, as if it's supposed to make them sound edgy, or cool or an adult (it doesn't), considering the recent election and the one candidate who bragged about assaulting women, considering the overall daily actions of people towards others, yes, our entertainment does reflect society quite well.

You idiots do understand that he isn't even in office yet, and you are already bitching about the job he is doing? How retarded is that?

The same kind of retarded Republicans were doing before President Obama took office eight years ago. All we heard for weeks was him being a socialist and how he was going to drive this country into the ground (conveniently ignoring the driving into the ground Bush did to the country), how he would wreck the economy (again, ignoring how Bush destroyed the economy), how he would do this or that, all before he had taken office.

But please, tell us again how it's only those idiots who are bitching before someone takes office.

I love how vendors are using "security" as a bludgeon to beat people into boarding upgrade trains

And yet, how many stories do we see every week about the latest and greatest pieces of software riddled with holes and bleeding information? IoT devices anyone? It's almost as if these vendors have never heard of security.

Just because something is new and shiny doesn't automatically mean it's better.
