@tsarstepan,
Daraprim is an important drug for treatment of malaria. That has worldwide impacts.
WHO was pissed at this price rise when it happened.

This prick is one of the snottiest bastards I ever herd . He gave what amounted to be a "**** you" speech on PBS this past summer qwhen the Dqraprim cost rise was introduced.

Some spazool oughta kick his ass down the subway stairs.

@farmerman,
FBI: we don't have the Wu-Tang album, leave us alone

Pray For Conviction: Feds Could Seize Martin Shkreli's Exclusive Wu Tang Clan Album

CONTEXT:
Hated Pharmaceutical CEO Martin Shkreli Unmasked As Exclusive Owner Of Wu-Tang's New Album
Quote:
Last March the Wu-Tang Clan announced they would be releasing a new album, Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, but only ONE person would be able to purchase it. The album would be auctioned off, and the buyer would be the sole owner—the only catch would be that the owner could not sell it commercially.

@farmerman,
Great story: He donated a bunch of money to Bernie Sanders.

Sanders says "no thanks, asshole," and donates it to a clinic.

Muahaha. The bern kicks ass.

​New charges for ex-pharmaceutical executive Martin Shkreli
Source: CBS News

NEW YORK -- Federal prosecutors in New York have filed additional criminal charges against a pharmaceutical executive who was heavily criticized for raising the price of a lifesaving medication.

A new indictment filed Friday in Brooklyn says Martin Shkreli and his former attorney Evan Greebel schemed to defrauded potential investors of his former drug company Retrophin Inc., based in San Diego. They say the two allocated company stock to seven employees to conceal Shkreli's ownership of it.

Shkreli gained notoriety after a drug company he founded, Turing Pharmaceuticals, spent $55 million for the U.S. rights to sell a life-saving medicine called Daraprim and promptly raised the price about 5,000 percent from $13.50 to $750 per pill.

In February, he infuriated U.S. lawmakers when he exercised his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination in a hearing on the issue before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
