This is Pfizer's country. We merely live in it.
Many of us have forgotten that the impetus behind the infamous 2005 Kelo v. New London court case, in which the principle of private-use eminent domain was established for none other than Pfizer. In other words, 16 years ago, Pfizer established the principle of "your property, our choice." Now the company has established the principle of "your body, our choice." What we have witnessed the past year is that no matter how illogical, dangerous, and immoral Pfizer's mandate is on the American people, now including pushing a dangerous shot on young kids who clearly don't need to assume such risk, whatever Pfizer wants, Pfizer gets. There is a reason for it. The company has bought out the politicians in both parties.
Pfizer now has 92 lobbyists in Washington split between the two parties, not to mention high-roller PR firms to help with the (political) science. Pfizer's political action committee donated to 228 federal lawmakers at a price tag of over $4 million. Although people think of doctors and scientists when Pfizer comes to mind, the company likely has as many politicians working for it. The National Pulse found 74 known former White House staffers and staff of members and committees in Congress controlled by both parties now working for the Big Pharma god. Pfizer spent over $13 million on lobbying expenditures, not to mention buying up the airwaves to the point that news agencies cannot report a negative word about the company.
