Joe Biden – or rather, the people causing Joe Biden’s mouth to sort of move sometimes – now says he is sending out Strike Forces of government goons to cure the “hesitant,” by which he and his mouth-movers insultingly (and threateningly) mean the people who are not interested in being injected with anything concocted by the pharmaceutical cartels, especially concoctions granted “emergency authorization” that might harm or even kill them.
And which they cannot sue for damages in the event they are harmed by them.
But there is a cure for “hesitancy” … and the first dose is the rescission of the legal immunity for the pharmaceutical cartels. If their concoctions are, as they insist, “safe and effective” (as they weren’t in this case, one of more than a few) then let them back it up by being on the hook when they aren’t.
Would you buy a car from a company that you could not sue if it turned out the thing was dangerously defective? And you can stop driving a dangerous car, once you realize it is dangerous. How do you stop “driving” something that’s been shot into your body?
The country is obsessed with saaaaaaaaaafety and yet there is no “seatbelt requirement” for the pharmaceutical cartels, who are free to roar around town unbuckled and without catalytic converters, backing up over children and leaving the mess on the road for someone else to clean up.
They are the only for-profit operations in this country that are legally free to do as they like, which no doubt accounts for the fact that the pharmaceutical cartels are among the most profitable operations in this country. They are also able to use the instrumentalities of government to enhance their profits even further.
By forcing people to “buy” them. Speaking of which . . .
The “vaccines” being pushed on everyone are also being paid for by everyone – at least, by everyone who pays the taxes that are taken to pay the pharmaceutical cartels for their concoctions, which are then handed out for “free” to people not bright enough to understand they’re paying every last cent for them.
In taxes – and freedom.
Possibly also their health.
It is telling – if you’re thinking – that these pharma cartels insist on legal shielding from being held responsible for hurting people; it is even more telling that they have managed to leverage government into providing this shielding.
Who runs Bartertown?
It isn’t the cognitively impaired old hack mumbling the words he can barely remember. He’s as bought-and-paid for as the clickbait hacks who peddle “guest posts” and “content” to web sites like this one, the quid pro quo being these ads are never to be identified as such – in return for a fine fee, thank you very much.
More depressing, of course, is the wooden indian incomprehension of millions of Americans, who’ve blithely bought more Big Pharma Pintos than Ford ever sold. And Ford got sued by the handful of people – it was about 120 – who were burned to death or mauled by fire resulting from the defective design of the actual Pinto.
The supposedly 160 or so million who’ve been injected with Big Pharma’s Pinto – which has already killed many more people than the Pinto ever did and maimed exponentially more of them – cannot sue the manufacturer and somehow this passes without even a little bit of . . . hesitancy, on the part of those baring their arms.
Would such people have bought a Pinto from Ford knowing in advance about its design defect? Would they have bought one knowing that if the Pinto’s defects caused their death or maiming they could not sue Ford for recompense?
They probably would have – if the government assured them it was “safe and effective.”
That seems to be the key to unlocking the mystery of disparate accountability. If you sell something the government doesn’t particularly like – and if you haven’t got the money to get the government to force people to buy it – then you are legally on the line for any harms caused by whatever it is you’re selling. You cannot afford to pay (as by purchasing) the media to sell the public on the urgent necessity of buying your products, either. And because you don’t own the media, the media does hold you accountable when you screw up.
And sometimes, even when you don’t.
As for instance in the media-manufactured near-destruction of Audi over “unintended acceleration,” which was a case of Audi owners unintentionally flooring the accelerator rather than depressing the brake pedal, the both of them working perfectly well. As in the case of the media installing incendiary devices for filming the ignition of GM “side saddle” gas tanks that stubbornly refused to ignite on their own for the cameras.
But when you own the media and the government is your Master Blaster, then you can sell your “safe and effective” products without liability and without much questioning, either. People do as they are marketed to do. Believe what the TeeVee tells them they should believe. Like Plato’s stooges facing the wall, all they see are shadows of reality, which they are certain are reality.
Because it is all they see.
If these concoctions really are “safe and effective,” as the TeeVee says, then how about backing it up? Can anyone adduce a legitimate reason for immunizing the manufacturer of any product – especially one sold at a profit and one that people are being forced to buy – from the consequences of defective design?
If Ford can’t sell you a defective Pinto without the risk of being sued, why is that Big Pharma can force you to assume the risks of their defective Pinto?
It’s simple, of course. Ford doesn’t own the government. Or the media, which has become little more than the marketing arm of the government. Both of them owned by other interests – which do not have your best interests at heart.
