    +Brutus Tan if you can't see the point she's trying to make you're mad ignorant. The fact is corruption is pretty much legal in this country and it shouldnt be.

    yes they are disgusting people, they are not even people but should be seen as monsters/demons... just kill them and be done with it... it's a disgusting joke to allow them to sit there and lie through omission and word-twisting... kill them, take the things they stole from everyone and give it back to the people and move on to a better future

    BUFU1610 If there's anything I haven't addressed, let me know and I will, as I'm busy. Hence the miscellany of replies out of chronological order.And yes, I'd stated that your discourse was overstatement, meaning that your dicsoure is uncogent, or errant, as you'd engaged in overstatement. I'm starting to believe that you're not merely pretending to be so intellectually indolent.No amount of misrepresentation and logical fallacies imputed to my discourses will change the dynamic, as you are an in...

  • Bloody And Proud (Apr 23, 2019)

    BUFU1610 And, pray-tell, how do you make every point concise when the opponent pretends to misapprehend every discourse?The more that I prove that you're misrepresenting my discourses in an attempt to ascribe your devised nonsense to me, the more proof there is that you've not so little as a single legitimate discourse.You're aiding me with your fallacies, as I came to prove that you espouse notions, pose fallacies and violate the terms of legitimate discourse.

    So, if you conclude that you are willing to invest in a risky business, why not be responsible when disaster happens?

  • Warner Bros (2 days ago)

    like when a bank finances a car n a car crash happens the bank should be responsible for the damage done by the car?

    Erebus2075 I feel you but.. destroyed..?

  • Erebus2075 (3 days ago)

    and they are completely ignoring that is not their right to choose that for Everyone!.. they got no right to do so and should be destroyed for doing it

    I think everyone here is missing the point. What she was digging for was that very last sentence he said. Banks are funding projects that are risky to the people/environment even though in the beginning he claimed they put people above all, including profits. She was able to get him to admit the truth at the end by asking him specific questions like she did. She’s a lot sharper than I honestly expected.

    +Jennifer Gruber lol don't just assume this planet isn't fragile. That's how people would go extinct." oh this planet is fine let's drop another nuke "🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

  • Jennifer Gruber (1 day ago)

    Did you listen to his answer? Their crew deemed this pipeline not endangering the "environment". The Earth is not a jug; it will not break if you knock it around once or twice.

    lolThe bank that financed her economics degree should be held accountable as well, then.

  • Michael Martin (Mar 15, 2019)

    I think the problem she's trying to convey is that through financing (Wells Fargo ect) projects that contain a known environmental risk (based on previous failures) Wells Fargo shifts the environmental risk of such an investment to the companies that build them.Makes sense, until you realize that the company's that build them shift it to the operators, then the operators shift them to smaller bottom feeding companies before the environmental bomb blows up in their shareholders faces.Then when the tim...

    It is not right to finance what is obviously not good for the water, a precious resource. Plain and simple, why is this hard to see, these companies are the problem and have no morals. All they think is money regardless of the forseeable problem they will create. Where is NEPA? They should be the one to evaluate and approve or disapprove any company to develop.

    +pohpooooo regulated. All the countries way better off than the US is a capitalist/socialist country.We have this bullshit where old people get free healthcare(that's overbilled full of waste) because they are most of the voters, while we all get screwed.Oh yah and corporations and the rich get unlimited tax breaks. Capital gains taxes are a joke. I pay double in taxes than a rich asshole does in capital gains

    I pulled $40 out of my Wells Fargo account to buy weed. They should be investigated for drug trafficking.
