on a somewhat less corrupt planet, the only thing Dow &al could ever pay in all the rest of their existence, would be first installments on the first 1% of the compensation they owe, for unmeasurable crimes against humanity.

I'm might consider that corporations are people after a few dozen have been executed.

it's another ameircan crime that will not be punished because american crimes are above the law. Americans are above the law. Americans can do as they will,where ever they wish anytime and never have to pay the price, the cost or punishment for the crimes....NO flag, not even that polluted and sullied by blood and odious deeds can fly higher than the crimes it commits....

The Olympics are not meant to be a whitewash for deservedly tarnished reputations. The blood-money sponsorship by Dow, BP, et al is an affront to the purity and spirit of these games.

Perhaps there can be a One-minute-of-silence tribute to all of the people who were maimed, deformed, or who lost their lives because of the products created by these unscrupulous killers.
