(Twitter)   Betcha BookMetaFace would be less cavalier about breaking Washington State campaign finance law -- INTENTIONALLY, 822 TIMES -- if penalties involved jail time rather than piddling fine that Zucky Boy can just chuckle at and pull out of petty cash   (twitter.com) divider line

So Zuck, the first thing you do is to look for the biggest, meanest, toughest guy you can find, and just start punching him, to establish that you are one crazy MFer, and to get some respect.

It won't work, because you are absolutely a wimp, and it's quite likely that you will be killed within a minute, but you'll have gotten it over with quickly and reduced the amount of time you'll have to suffer, otherwise, 99.8% of the prison population will conspire to extend your suffering for as long as they can manage. On second thought, don't bother. Que sera sera.

If the punishment for breaking the law is a fine, then the very rich are lawless.

Tripled fines?  So the cost of doing business.

Reminds me of a story about a punk-ass kid in his 20s who got a ticket for reckless driving.  He just walked into the courtroom, up to the bench, reached in his pocket and pulled $300 out of his pocket and slapped it on the bench.

The judge said "I'll accept that as a guilty plea.  Now reach in your other pocket and pull me out 30 days!"

Legal for a price.

The Constitution has quite a bit too say about unfair and unusual fines applied to corporations. You should look it up.

Penalties assessed to ultra wealthy and large companies should be significant percentages of assets/gross annual revenue. If they can't pay it and stay in business, all the better. farkers should be wiped out for doing stuff like this. Million dollar fine? Nope. 15% of previous year revenue and assets. Per charge.

When someone with that kind of wealth sees the inside of a prison cell without first farking over people with even more wealth... well that sun will probably have engulfed us by then or something. It's a nice mental image, though.

Where did I hear that 41,000 IT "security" people work for FB?

When Pelosi said that we are a capitalist country ,she meant it. Everything can be bought.

Security is everyone's responsibility, which is why you heard that.

Overhead.

Yeah well that was Facebook days, Meta shouldn't be held responsible for what Facebook did.

Search "constitution" for word "corporation"
Result returned = 0

Define "unfair"...

Fines mean it's legal if you're rich.
 
2022-10-07 8:06:23 AM  
The great thing about campaign finance penalties is that you can pay them with illegal campaign donations.
 
2022-10-07 8:14:00 AM  
Aw damn, I'm sure slaps on the wrist might start to chafe the skin a bit after the 822nd slap.

This will escalate his competition with Ol' Musky to see who can lose their fortune faster.

So far we have Farkberger - Metaverse failure and court slap down
Ol' Musky - Twatter war and a court slap down then turning Twatter into "X" to compete with the idiocy of Metaverse

I never thought I'd see a superpower like Russia lose their whole country twice in my lifetime, or a derp battle of wealthy idiots racing to lose all their wealth and have to move into a cardboard box with Mike Pillow.

So "petty cash" is what he calls his butt. Good to know.

Europe did it correct with GDPR. Not saying the law is right, but the potential for the fines to be devastating to companies was the correct choice

The swiss approach to traffic tickets, yes. We should do that.
