Drugs, Jail, and Monopoly: Business An HIV treatment cost taxpavers millions. The government patented it But a pharma giant is making billions Antiretroviral pills Truvada sit on a tray at Jack's Drug Store on Nov. 23, 2010, in San Anselmo, Calif. (Justin Sullivan/Getty Images) By Christopher Rowland March 26 at 7:26 PM Thomas Folks spent vears in his U.S Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lab developing a treatment to block deadly HI co AIDS V in monkeys. Then San Francis researcher Robert Grant, using $50 million in federal grants, proved the treatment worked in people who engaged in risky sex Their work-almost fully funded by U.S toxic-spill: socialistexan: whyyoustabbedme: https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/economy/pharma-giant-profits-from-hiv-treatment-funded-by-taxpayers-and-patented-by-the-government 1. Taxpayer-funded research discovers new use for HIV drug; 2. Company w/ monopoly on drug says gov cant patent it; 3. Company makes $3B on drug/year; 4. Taxpayers get no return on investment, ~80% who need treatment dont get it Our capitalist aristocratic elites commit mass murder and treason against the people, and make billions, some black guy gets caught with a joint and goes to jail for years… “American justice” sure is a joke This is incredibly common with pharmaceuticals in the US. Drugs are researched with public funds, patented by the government, but then they are given directly to a private corporation for billions (if not trillions) in profit for that corporation. 210 drugs from 2010 to 2016 benefited from this process. Kill capitalism before it kills humanity.

Ass, Bad, and Chill: Citizen of Arcterra @PhilodoxPils Svar till @_hoemo Nazis: Let's commit genocide. Antifa: Let's not. BLM: Please stop shooting us. Centrist: I cannot tell these apart officially-kim-jung-un: siryouarebeingmocked: kamiyu910: the-darkest-of-souls: nazis: lets commit genocide Antifa: lets dismantle our current government and instigate a horrendous for of government that commits mass murder and genocide for other reasons while using facist methods to try and silence other people  BLM: lies, lies, lies, bullshit riots, and cop shooting centrist: everyone needs to chill the fuck out  Nazis: “The Jews are too privileged, they have too much power, they’re oppressing the German people!” SJWs (AntiFa, BLM, etc): “The whites are too privileged, they have too much power, they’re oppressing the non-white people!” “Hitler’s first written utterance on political questions dating from this period emphasized that what he called “the anti-Semitism of reason” must lead “to the systematic combating and elimination of Jewish privileges. Its ultimate goal must implacably be the total removal of the Jews.“” “…the vile, anti-Semitic propaganda of the 1930’s, when splashed across Der Spiegel was blaming Jews - and so called disproportionate Jewish wealth - for Germany’s losing WWI and the country’s subsequent economic downturn. Canards about Jews controlling world finances - first promulgated by the Tsarist forgery, “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” - was anti-Semitic back then and it is anti-Semitic today…” Why are these considered only bad if “white” is turned to something else? It’s the same rhetoric that the nazis spread. Why should we consider anyone who uses this any better than the nazis, when they said the same stuff?  Someone defending Antifa or BLM deliberately ignores what they actually flippin’ do. Take a shot. remember that time a guy did an experiment where he did an entire speech at an antifa rally using only hitler quotes and everyone cheered I’m screaming Antifa is literally a terrorist group “let’s just not commit genocide” my ass

Guns, Laundry, and Lol: Sarcasticsapien @Sarcasticsapien Kids started eating Tide Pods. So stores started locking them up, making them harder to obtain, even though overall people use laundry detergent responsibly. That's all I want with guns. When something becomes a problem you make adjustments to prevent as much harm as possible. <p><a href="http://siryouarebeingmocked.tumblr.com/post/172153259286/somebodyoverthereinhell-siryouarebeingmocked" class="tumblr_blog">siryouarebeingmocked</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="https://somebodyoverthereinhell.tumblr.com/post/171897646275/siryouarebeingmocked-jalopyrustbucket" class="tumblr_blog">somebodyoverthereinhell</a>:</p><blockquote> <p><a href="http://siryouarebeingmocked.tumblr.com/post/171783272065/jalopyrustbucket-cadenboy456-this-guy-has-the" class="tumblr_blog">siryouarebeingmocked</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="http://jalopyrustbucket.tumblr.com/post/171010423932/cadenboy456-this-guy-has-the-right-idea-its" class="tumblr_blog">jalopyrustbucket</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="https://cadenboy456.tumblr.com/post/171009471797/this-guy-has-the-right-idea" class="tumblr_blog">cadenboy456</a>:</p> <blockquote><p>This guy has the right idea.</p></blockquote> <p>It’s like you think gun laws don’t already exist.</p> </blockquote> <p>Also, hardly anyone actually ate Tide pods until the media made a big deal out of it, (or after, really) and &gt;<a href="https://gizmodo.com/no-grocery-stores-arent-locking-up-tide-pods-because-o-1822160273"><b>the pods had already been locked up for years</b> to keep people from stealing them</a>&lt;.</p> <h2>So, this analogy is <b>even more accurate than OP thought</b>.</h2> </blockquote> <p>and even though they had precautions on tide pods, MORE WERE MADE TO ACCOMODATE RECENT INCIDENTS INVOLVING THEM</p> <p>it’s not that hard guys</p> </blockquote> <p>Except the people who want more gun control consistently refuse to talk about the <b>failures of the authorities</b> (EG Sutherland Springs, Parkland) to enforce the current laws and policies.</p><p>They say incorrect things like “there are more restrictions on vaginas/adopting kids/cough medicine than buying a gun!”, then turn around and tout “common sense” solutions that don’t involve a) the opinions of actual gun owners, and b) doing research. </p><p>For example, rifles are used to murder less people than <b>fists</b>, yet AR-15s are frequently a target for gun control.
