the killer in you

Welcome to self-policing corporate responsibility. A division of the pharmaceutical company Bayer (Expertise with responsibility) sold millions of dollars of blood-clotting medicine for hemophiliacs - medicine that carried a high risk of transmitting AIDS - to Asia and Latin America in the mid-1980s while selling a new, safer product in the West.

Jesus Christ. How can those people live with themselves passing off the drug to the "brown people" knowing that it wasn't safe enough to sell in the West? If only there was a hell for those people to rot in.

Well, that should be good for a fine of around $100,000.
Then we can put this unpleasant business behind us.
I'm sure those people would have caught some other disease anyway; they don't love Jesus the way regular people do.

Why do you hate America? My Grandpappy fought and died for the right to kill 3rd-world subhumans with inferior drugs. Are you suggesting that people's lives are worth more than money? And those people's lives at that?

You are bigger communists than Warren Buffett.

If your grandfather fought in WWII, he may have been fighting against Bayer (in a manner of speaking). And Ford, too.

Ya know, technically "loving jesus" is necrophilia.
