Martin Shkreli, the former pharmaceutical executive who was slandered by the entire mainstream media following his necessary decision to increase the price of an AIDS medication has been sentenced to seven years in prison. While the entire media claimed he was being greedy, and price gouging at the expense of those who require his drug to live, the facts prove different.
But the charges he was prosecuted for had nothing to do with the supposed “price gouging,” it was for defrauding investors. But the genius critics of him on Twitter had no idea of that.
Wow, I didn't know Pharma Bro was sentenced to 7 yrs in prison. I just hope this somehow leads to the drugs being sold at a normal price. https://t.co/Dik6Aq8SM3

there are countless more Shkreli in the pharma industry..perhaps not with the snarky mouth. let's begin with a more refined version, Heather Bresch of Mylan and her EpiPen price gouging.

Shkreli will be credited for six months he already served stemming from an arrest based around him making a joke, offering $5,000 for a strand of Hillary Clinton’s hair. Along with being sentenced to seven years in prison, the federal government has seized $7.6 million in assets from Shkreli, including his one of a kind Wu-Tang Clan album he paid $2 million for.

Harvard Law School Planning Conference to Smear and Silence Homeschoolers
It seems doubtful the conference will feature parents’ rights advocates.
Harvard Law School is planning a conference on the topic of homeschooling, with speakers and content of the tenative June summit suggesting the event will be very negative towards the practice.
The Homeschooling Summit: Problems, Politics, and Prospects for Reform is planned for June 18-19th. The conference listing states that a focus of the conference will be to “discuss child rights in connection with homeschooling in the United States.”
Further investigation of the conference’s premise suggests it’s outright hostile to the notion of homeschooling entirely. One event scheduled for the second day of the conference is entitled “Concerns with Homeschooling.”
The Home School Legal Defense Association questioned what seemed to be the outright hostility to homeschooling that will be part of the event, pointing out the concerning public statements of some of the educators participating in the summit.
The pro-homeschooling rights group highlighted the anti-homeschooling track records of the event’s speakers.
Some, such as College of William and Mary law professor James Dwyer, have fundamentally questioned the rights of parents to homeschool their children. Dwyer has argued in law review article that “the claim that parents should have child-rearing rights—rather than simply being permitted to perform parental duties and to make certain decisions on a child’s behalf in accordance with the child’s rights—is inconsistent with principles deeply embedded in our law and morality.”
It almost seems anachronistic that the fixings of elite cultural liberalism are maintaining themselves in the midst of the national Chinese coronavirus epidemic, an event that has actually forced the American public and policy makers to focus on things that matter. This anti-homeschooling summit might end up being cancelled because of the coronavirus epidemic. But it any case, Harvard Law’s academic elites seem intent to question the rights of homeschoolers either way.
