April 25, 2023: Why are so many hospitals closing?? Why is it legal for Prospect Medical Holding to get billions of dollars in loans from private equity, buy hospitals such as Delaware County Memorial in Pennsylvania, pay themselves over $457 million dollar dividend, (Sam Lee, the CEO of Prospect paid himself a $90 million dividend), and then pay off the loans by selling the hospitals and property (Closing the hospitals) to Medical Properties Trust. Medical Properties Trust is where private equity turns their hospital real estate holdings into cash. Medical Properties Trust has a portfolio of over 200 hospitals. It saddles these hospitals with so much debt that many of these hospitals must close. How can such outrageous, disgusting, immoral behavior be legal??? This must be stopped. The rich get richer and the country's ill patients are not able to get hospital care. Here is a picture of the creep, Sam Lee. Shame on you and your colleagues! You all should be in jail for crimes against humanity.
June 24, 2022: US Supreme Court overturns Roe vs Wade. Shame on all of them! Leave women alone...and the worst is Trump favorite Clarence Thomas, who should be removed from the Court because of his wife's outrageous actions in planning the Jan. 6, 2021 insurrection. She should be in jail.
Sept. 11, 2022: Hasidic Jews defraud the government by taking billions in government support for religious schools while these yeshivas provide basically no secular education and don't comply with NYS education rules for math, English, & science. These yeshivas should be closed & Hasidic children should attend public school, where they would get an excellent education. (see the NY Times investigation of these scams).
January 9, 2021:
Senator Ted Cruz and Senator Josh Hawley-your treasonous actions disgust me. Shame on you both for encouraging Trump's lying. You both belong in prison for being traitors to the USA democracy, as do the 139 Representatives.
January 7, 2021: Eight GOP senators voted to sustain the objections to the Pennsylvania electors: Ted Cruz of Texas, Josh Hawley of Missouri, Tommy Tuberville of Alabama, Cindy Hyde-Smith of Mississippi, John Kennedy, LA; Roger Marshall of Kansas, Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming and Rick Scott of Florida. SHAME ON YOU ALL....You are immoral, evil people, all of you, disgusting traitors, and you are destroying our democracy.
And shame on the 139 Representatives who did the same, including 4 Representatives in the New York delegation (below); we need to vote all of these traitors and treasonists out of office!!
Chris Jacobs, N.Y. TRAITOR
Nicole Malliotakis, N.Y. TREASONIST VOTE HER OUT in 2022, STATEN ISLAND
Elise M. Stefanik, N.Y. LOSER
Lee Zeldin, N.Y. You are a total Failure. Let's vote him out!
Monica Palmer and William Hartmann, SHAME on you. You are cheaters, and I hope that your lives are ruined because of your sedition. How dare you not certify Wayne County's election results? We will never forget your toxic and totally disgusting, treasonous, un-American behavior.
Amazon fired Christian Smalls, a Staten Island warehouse worker, just hours after he demanded corona virus protections (April, 2020). In a meeting at Amazon, David Zapolsky, Amazon's general counsel, said that 'Mr. Smalls could be protrayed as"not smart or articulate" to weaken his organizing movement for protective corona virus gear. Amazon also fired Emily Cunningham and Maren Costa for tyring to set up a meeting with Amazon's warehouse workers. "The power of large organizations to levy what are in effect taxes is commonplace. It may sometimes be exercised benevolently, but, nevertheless, it is a dictatorial power subject to no public responsibility, which is the antithesis of our democratic tradition." (1938, Thurman Arnold. FDR's asst attorney general in charge of anti-trust). Where is anti-trust legislation to break up Amazon??
To all of the looters, shame on you! You are opportunists, lawless people, and should be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest. You are damaging many more lives, lives of small business owners and workers, by your unruly, illegal, and disrespectful behavior.

Shame on GrubHub, UberEats and DoorDash for charging restaurants fees of up to 40% of the total cost of the food for delivery during the Covid 19 shut-down of NYC. These high fees are killing NYC restaurants. The people in the restaurants should get the $, not some 'middleman' at GrubHub. GrubHub is holding restaurants hostage, since now restaurants depend so much on take-out food delivery.

Shame on for-profit colleges! They are taking advantage of Covid 19 to advertise heavily for more students.
Capella, Strayer, Grand Canyon Univ., DeVry Univ., Ashford Univ., owned by Zovio, American Public Univ., American Military Univ. & others have abysmal graduation rates; at Capella, only ~10% graduate within 8 years; at Strayer, 3% at its Arkansas campus graduate; and at Ashford, ~25%. Many students end up with no degree, large debt, & a poor education.

Aug. 1, 2020: Boycott meat from Brazilian meat producer JBS SA. This company can't keep meat from cattle grazed on burned out land in the Amazon that was supposed to be protected from its supply chain. Shame on President Bolsanaro of Brazil, and shame on his environment minister, Ricardo Salles, who is promoting deforestation of the Amazon rain forest. And kudos to Nordea Asset Management, a European investment firm, for dumping JBS SA from its funds. The European Union should stand firm and not do a trade deal with Brazil until Brazil protects the Amazon basin and stops burning it.
