U.S. Dirty Energy Depends on Subsidies and Climate Denial

They’re interviewing Mattress Mack on the Astros radio broadcast and one of the commentators asked Mack “people were asking if you were worried if the people you let into your stores during Harvey, if you were worried they would sleep on or damage your product (beds, couches)” and Mack just said “hey, that’s what it’s for, people over profit yknow”

Mack went from an icon to a Houston legend.

for clarification: i know ‘prioritizing people over profit’ isnt possible under capitalism, i’m just pandering to libertarians and moderates in that comic so i kept the focus on capitalism

Stand with #StandingRock: The water protectors in Standing Rock are under attack by the police in North Dakota. Several days ago, the world witnessed peaceful Native Americans of Standing Rock being beaten, pepper sprayed, shot with rubber bullets, and forcibly removed from their own sacred land. Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton refused to show support for Standing Rock and failed to condemn the violence and police brutality against Native American citizens. It shows that she values the interests of corporations and Wall Street more than she values the lives of the people and the planet. Republican candidate Donald Trump has yet to even acknowledge what is happening. Besides Bernie Sanders, the only political party who has condemned the oppression in Standing Rock is the Green Party and Presidential candidate Jill Stein, who visited North Dakota in person to stand in solidarity with Standing Rock.
