Given today's hearings, let's see if those investments pay off.

_ execs 👍 donating to politicians.

Not saying it's right, just that it's a far more widespread problem with the way our everything is structured.

Which only illustrates how cheaply politicians can be bought.

Look, if you poors want your voices heard, maybe try not buying that refrigerator and instead investing that money in to sweet sweet lobbyists and lawyers to write the legislation for the politicians. It's not that hard. Geez.

They get to donate the maximum allowable per individual, which is something like $2,100 per annum. So unless there's about 1,500 executives at Facebook, those numbers won't jibe.

Kids are already being exploited by their own parents on Instagram. Not sure why they need a separate app or whatever. Body issues? Where are they getting that? Might wanna aim at the fashion brands paying kids and parents.

If only there were a way to donate more money, pool it all together, then parcel it out to other groups which can accept more money.  Maybe the article has something to say about it?

They could be donating that to charity, instead of bribing politicians.

I propose an alternative.

You'll love it. It's like a big hug from your constituents.
