Trump's America. There will be no consequences for this.

what's that crazypants: Trump's America. There will be no consequences for this.


There are very few, it would seem from the article. It says the company earned $300 million in 2017 alone. Their punishment for blatantly lying and harming people has been to agree to stop lying, pay $250,000 to the state and less than $100,000 combined in refunds.

Once again a company is punished for its malfeasance by being forced to pay a tiny percentage of the profits earned through those actions.

Let me get this straight... There's compelling evidence that this pyramid scheme company broke the law in a myriad of ways, but instead of pressing charges the attorney general struck a deal wherein the company promises not to do the things they were caught doing? Kinda seems like the attorney general has something to gain from this, racketeering perhaps.

Wouldn't it have been easier and more lucrative to just sell a product that works and makes people happy and satisfied rather than lie, cheat, steal, and bribe? shiat like this just doesn't make any goddamn sense to me.

No animal testing tho, so newly broke and bald women can feel better about their choice of cosmetics.

That's why I stick with Prell and Lifebuoy. They've stood the test of time without causing bodily harm.

A dig on the people involved might be enlightening. AGs are prone to influence.

The point of cheating is to get your profits now instead of latter. Time is money and the longer I wait the less I get.

Nobody needs nearly the amount of shampoo commercials tell you, you need.
