There they go again.....always poor-mouthin' and whining about "hardships" -- as if they don't CAUSE any

This appeal is particularly in bad taste. Everyone already knows they've budgeted for things like this already. They consider it "part of the job" and have factored it in as part of their cost of doing business.
Their business is MURDER and business is booming.
BOOM!!! BOOM!!! KA -- BOOM !!!

The penalty for murder is death or life in prison for an individual.....a corporation that survives on government life support gets a parking ticket.
So much for JUSTICE. It's more important for those shithole bums to be able to "live some place nice" and get drunk. After all...those shithole bums have union cards!
