Chipmaker scandal

To the editor:

Here is a classical example of the inhuman and thoroughly disgusting behavior of Big Money (both flavors), of our oligarchy and of those connected to them: It has got to stop now!

"American Chipmakers Had a Toxic Problem. Then They Outsourced It," Bloomberg Businessweek, June 15, 2017

Twenty-five years ago, U.S. tech companies pledged to stop using chemicals that caused miscarriages and birth defects. They failed to ensure that their Asian suppliers did the same.

This outrageous scandal dirties not only the Republicans, but the Democrats as well - for this went on during both Dem and GOP U.S. administrations for a long time. What does Obama have to say?

All of this misery - pain, death and even worse - was inflicted upon innocent women, here and overseas - all in the name of a buck, in the name of the almighty dollar!

To make matters even worse, legal settlements made here with injured American women were kept absolutely secret so that this monstrous practice could continue unabated for a long time.

I suggest that there are simply hoards of people, the people responsible for this blatant criminality - who need to be tried for mass capital murder! The matter should be considered as capital, not just manslaughter, because of the mass of the numbers of innocents involved in these deliberate, calculated acts of maiming and killing. The deliberate cover-up of course compounds the offense.

Direct responsibility for this outrage extends from corporate governances, high to low - even some supervisors in the field - together with any major stockholders who knew - or should have known - what was going on. Their indifference is utterly chilling!

How can we possibly look one another in the eye when we allow this sort of inhuman behavior to persist - even now - just not here anymore?

While this is not news, I will repeat it: Our political system is completely broken. Our politians are criminals, all.

Now, look down: That electronic gadget in your hand there is utterly filthy with human misery and death!
