Are you kidding me!!! "He shouldn't go to jail because he's a jerk!???" That's NOT why he went to jail- he went to jail because he was convicted of a crime! And fine for a Billionaire is insulting! Disgusting!!
The comparison between Holmes and Shkreli has the tenuous common thread of medical products, when Holmes never delivered a medical product. While Shkreli was a jerk and ripped people off, he did not promise a product and then not deliver it. That is why this comparison fails so miserably.
A better and more accurate comparison would be Holmes and Madoff.
Bernie Madoff learned what happens when a man screws over the wealthy.
Holmes is learning what does and does not happen when a woman screws over the wealthy.
The reason why Holmes has been getting away with this scam is because of our Age of Listen and Believe, and METOO. The idea behind this is to ALWAYS believe a woman, for women do not lie.
Even worse is the method of pushing women into areas where they may not belong. There is no difference between a man of the 1950s telling women what they CANNOT do, and women of our modern times telling other women what they MUST do.
There are actually investors out there right now who want to believe in Holmes so badly that they still want to invest with her. They still trust her. They still like her. They want it to be real so badly.
I'm sure there could be a woman out there who may be the next Steve Jobs. Holmes is not it, and is being forced into that mold after she did some character study to put herself in that role.
Because of our times, where our system and culture engages in "Soft Sexism" toward women, not only will Holmes be able to commit more scams, but more women will surface and be ready to scam those who have been indoctrinated into The Cult of Woman.
This is not to say that women cannot achieve. Certainly, they can. While many people would vote for a woman, it was no excuse to vote for Clinton. And while many people wish to invest in female entrepreneurs, Holmes is not the right choice.
They're investing in Holmes because of her gender, and not because she has an actual product. I hope that they all pay for it dearly and lose their shirts, because maybe then we can shake this cult-like _support of women, no matter what._
As a man who considers women to be equal to men, I prove it by treating them like men, including having the same expectations of them that I would have of a man. If a man did what Holmes has done, then he would be looking at a lifetime in prison.
If there is ONE thing you do not do in America, it is defrauding the wealthy. For the embodiment of power in America is neither male nor female, and the color of true power and privilege is not white.
It is green.
For now, women do not get treated like men in the court of law. This must change, sooner rather than later. Funny how Feminists do not speak up about soft sexism, because they benefit from it.
Another proof that American justice system is a sham. A bogus sham.
Even president Trump is being hounded by the so-called "DOJ". Manafort is going to jail for a crime he committed 12 years ago, which half of all lobbyists in DC also committed. Hillary walks free while someone else who committed less serious crimes than she did served time. Shkrelli's crime was much less than Elizabeth Holmes'. But guess who is serving time?
Elizabeth Holmes defrauded Rupert Murdoch and his business criminal buddies , tbh they had it coming when they didn't do their do diligence in investing in Theranos , she personally didn't sell a single share in the company and hence cannot be said to have profited massively from it .
The problem for Shkreli is that he pissed of a triumvirate of establishment politicians, the pharmaceutical industry and your casual headline reading citizen in their numbers; that was always going to fare badly for him. Sad, because lady justice is supposedly blind.
Another part of being an American is stabbing the elite in the face when you get the opportunity. Sure Holmes financial crimes were worse but she really didn't have an impact on the jury of her peers aka the common person. Shkreli raised the price of a live saving drug 5000%, a drug the common person is paying for.
Guilt vs innocence in the US is determined by the common person, that is what the Constitution demands. Spit on the common person and you will be found guilty.
The Securities and Exchange Commission doesn't bring criminal charges which is why Elizabeth Holmes right now only has to pay a fine. Shkreli was investigated by the FBI which actually sends people to prison. As of now Holmes is under criminal investigation. However those investigations often move like molasses.
shrekli should have been charged for price hikes but these niggers on fox news will only care about when nazi faggot welfare queens on wallstreet loose money they stole from main street workers. PS fuck the george soros tax breaks fox news is abunch of niggers who love george soros so much they want him to get a tax breaks and shrekli doesn't get charged for his real crimes cuz of nazi house niggers on the right
All of the sudden, white people can see female privilege but cannot see overall white privilege over minorities. Y'all just choose to look away. I never thought y'all were that dumb. As long as it doesn't effect you it was okay, huh?
That pussy pass. I have no desire to be transgendered, but if I could have chosen my gender I would have been a woman. Get laid anytime I want, take no responsibility for anything, everyone listens to me and takes care of my needs and on the off chance that I do something wrong I cry and say I didn't mean to and my sins are absolved.
Many high ranking government people were on her side. I'm sure they got their money out of it. Just proves our government is very corrupt. She helped them out. Keep pushing towards the rich and the poor. All the non insiders probably lost everything in that stock. The non insiders of course are not the rich ones.
It’s funny Martha Stewart who is a beloved television personality who actually created something of value, sells $230,000 of ImClone stock on since information and she gets five months in prison, five months home confinement and two years of probation. I am not condoning what Martha Stewart did, but she did far less damage than Elizabeth Holmes and plus Martha Stewart actually has a real successful business that makes money! Elizabeth Holmes everything she did was a lie and she defrauded investors out of $750 million and a false positive from one of her machines led to a man getting a heart attack because he relied on false information!
free shkreli i didn't even think he was a jerk after watching all the interviews he did and on his live streams people are just afraid of confidence, they can't stand when information is given to them straight on instead of in a nice little kissing your ass package. you work in business that's how successful people act when they climbing the ladder,, then they pretend to be nice people when it benefits them, he just wasn't pretending.
This chick made billions of dollars off a complete lie. Why is she not in jail? Should I start a company and sell people a complete lie? Apparently if I become a billionaire the lie is justified and all is well. What's going on here?
How to become bitcoin trader? Exactly like Bitcoin, multiple digital currencies exist in the marketplace. So if you prefer to buy a few other currencies which aren`t available on Indian Exchange than you can utilize Bittrex. All you have to do is locate an exchange that you favor. Cryptocurrency exchanges have a massive potential to modify peoples minds and opinions concerning cryptocurrencies generally speaking and their application in actual life. So even in the event the exchange is attacked, its still true that you have your money. Furthermore, the exchanges prepare each and every industry for Bitcoin expansion. Existing stock exchanges will also compete to be able to fulfill the users configuration requirements. Sooner or later later on, the prices will grow more equal, meeting somewhere in the middleyour profit is equivalent to the quantity of convergence. No matter how far it is from Kijun, it is likely to return and test that level at some point. The amount of bitcoin is perpetually changing. In the US, it is 1000 USD. Whats even better, seek the services of a seasoned lawyer or at least ask for an in depth consultation. So youve read the newspaper about the meteoric growth of crypto currencies including Bitcoin or Ripple. Then coming up with 1000s of exchange rates simply to go out and get groceries is nearly impossible. Many cities around the world provide a bitcoin ATM where you are able to trade cash for bitcoin. The cryptocurrency world isn`t efficient.
