Was it nestle that was given rights to bottle the fresh water near Flint, while the residents of Flint had to drink poison?

I think my personal "most evil thing Nestle has done" is them giving new mothers in impoverished third world countries enough free baby formula that they will stop producing breast milk, then just being totally OK with mothers driving themselves further into poverty buying more formula while feeding their newborns half-rations or unclean water or just straight up watching them die unable to do anything.

Looks like the Times has the receipts. Literally.

Reading through, it explains the trafficking/drugs stuff and a lot of other bad.

quote:

The Times has reviewed receipts from Cash App, a mobile payments app, and Apple Pay that show payments from Mr. Gaetz and Mr. Greenberg to one of the women, and a payment from Mr. Greenberg to a second woman. The women told their friends that the payments were for sex with the two men

...
Should anyone inquire about their relationships, one person said, Mr. Gaetz told the women to say that he had paid for hotel rooms and dinners as part of their dates.

...
It is also a violation of federal child sex trafficking law to provide someone under 18 with anything of value in exchange for sex, which can include meals, hotels, drugs, alcohol or cigarettes. A conviction carries a 10-year mandatory minimum prison sentence.

Seriously. Every time I hear that so-and-so is under Federal investigation I'm usually pretty about it because it could mean a million different things and until an indictment hits, it doesn't really mean anything.

But when I hear the Postal Inspectors are involved?

People are doing this all over the forums too and itís really loving dumb.

Actually it started when NYC issued vaccine passports with 30-day expirations so people immediately assumed de Blasio had secret knowledge that the vaccines were worthless.

And even further back around late Summer the CDC issued a statement saying that people should expect at least three months of immunity given some basic assumptions from other viruses, which a lot of people took as definitive proof that immunity could only possibly last three months.

US schools really need to have a whole semester on quantitive statements I guess.

We have no idea how long the vaccines last because there's not a magical number of antibodies or T-cells that fight off a COVID-19 infection. It's not like you can stick a human on a dyno or in a salt chamber to speed up the corrosion, but morons are using the 6-month confirmation to whine about it or push more anti-vax poo poo.

My paperwork had me fill out that it was good for a year, but it was clearly a check-the-box exercise. We don't even know if you need a double-shot of Moderna/Pfizer in a year/two years/whenever, or if a single dose can function as the booster, or if you can get a completely different vaccine.
