Elizabeth Warren Recalls a Time When Big Donors May Have Changed Hillary’s Vote

At last night’s Democratic town hall, Hillary Clinton challenged critics who describe her as too close to monied interests to name a time when that cozy relationship influenced her policy decisions.

A tweet from investigative journalist David Sirota reminded us that, in a 2004 interview with Bill Moyers, Elizabeth Warren pointed to a time when donors’ interests may have changed Hillary Clinton’s position.

Warren — at the time a Harvard law professor — recounted how, in the 1990s, she wrote an editorial opposing a proposed piece of legislation tightening bankruptcy laws. Warren explained that it would disproportionately hurt single mothers. Hillary Clinton, at the time the first lady, read the editorial, and asked for a meeting with Warren. The meeting went well; Warren said she “never had a smarter student.” Afterward, Clinton returned to Washington and, according to her biography, persuaded Bill Clinton to veto the legislation.

But when Hillary Clinton was elected to the Senate and another version of the same bill came to the floor, she did an about face:

ELIZABETH WARREN: She voted in favor of it.

BILL MOYERS: Why?

ELIZABETH WARREN: As Senator Clinton, the pressures are very different. It’s a well-financed industry. You know a lot of people don’t realize that the industry that gave the most money to Washington over the past few years was not the oil industry, was not pharmaceuticals. It was consumer credit products. Those are the people. The credit card companies have been giving money, and they have influence.

BILL MOYERS: And Mrs. Clinton was one of them as senator.

ELIZABETH WARREN: She has taken money from the groups, and more to the point, she worries about them as a constituency.

It took a couple of hours to give a response on Clinton’s challenge. Hillary for President? Are you kidding me?

Want to know how corrupt the pharmaceutical industry is?

See this?

This is called Afrezza. It’s an inhaler for diabetic insulin. That’s right. An inhaler. That means no more needles. It’s only for fast acting insulin, but it could still vastly improve the life of a lot of diabetics. 

Imagine having to constantly prick yourself with needles to keep yourself alive, and then suddenly there’s a new product that could change the whole way you live your life for the better.

And here’s the thing: it works. It works really really well. People with diabetes that have been lucky enough to have used it think it’s amazing.

But sadly, it’s probably going to end up as a failure because the pharmaceutical company (a French company called Sanofi) that was in charge of marketing it didn’t care enough to actually try. Not only that, but they made it incredibly expensive so hardly anyone could afford it. Most people have never heard of it, and the way things are going, no one else ever will.

Please reblog this to raise awareness of this product and hopefully get another company to market it. It could change so many lives.

How this relates to Undertale:
Basically, this proves Undyne’s speech really is true, individually, we, like the monsters, are weak and easily brushed off, like a droplet of water, but with our hearts beating together, we spread and swell and crash upon you like a mighty wave, eroding your castle, determined to act as one and STRIKE YOU DOWN!

Corporations may be powerful and have money to corrupt and get their way, but with enough upset citizens, a violent uprising will succeed. Just like how Undyne will lead the monsters and overthrow Toriel if the human has killed too many monsters. Its this that major corporations need to remember, “Memento Mori”, “remember that you must die”. No matter how much money or power you are, no matter how big your corporation is, your security is not foolproof, all it takes is a group of people, someone with a gun or a knife, and its over for you. its so easy to get pictures and info on people these days, and the positions in companies, its so easy to spread, before you know it you have thousands of people that will attack you physically or economically the second they see you. Theres a lot of disgruntled people out there, and no matter how good your lawyers are, how much determination you have, how much power you think you wield….. you can still die, and in this world……you don’t have any resets or save files………

You would be amazed how many NDA’s, Copyrights, lawsuit summons, DMCA takedown notices, Contracts, Super PAC paperwork, and Lobbyist funded bills a single sharp knife can cut through.

Big Pharma wants to make money off from you. If you can self medicate with the oil, they will not be rich. Same as Wall Street crooks. The ignorant has been brain washed that Marijuna is the devil weed. It also cures lots of cancers. It was also on PBS. They rather poison you with their meds. Ever listen to the side effects of their meds. Yeah, so you have to get treatments for the side effects from the meds they prescribe you.

Theory: Golden/Black City Actually Not Corrupted

So if you bear with me, I think I have some fairly interesting evidence to present in defense of this argument, but it might be a little long-winded (and includes LOTS of interesting sources and a couple awesome pictures) so…below the cut.

More corruptions. You see just how important the ID of the sprites are and what section the game selects for each sprite.

Imagine if Toby actually made a built in corruptor for the game, so if you named your character Gaster the game progressively added corruptions, making it near impossible to beat the game.
