Joe Manchin -- how to get him in line ethics probe regarding Mylan and big pharma

Perhaps Joe would play ball if an ethics probe into him sinking Neera's nomination and other votes that helped his daughter's company Mylan would get him to se the light.

Not sure he would want all those dirty little secrets as to how he sided with big pharma and Mylan against the interests of West Virginians in light of the opioid crisis, insulin and epipen price hikes, etc.

Perhaps mentioning that this might all be exposed to the light of day might make him change his tune.

Hyatt Nazi


I used the Hyatt website portal to tell them that I would be boycotting their establishments until they fire the manager and facility managers at the CPAC location and issue a statement condemning the use of a Nazi rune as a stage. Someone had to approve that facilities request and it would not have taken long to find it on the internet.

I am going to ask my company to put similar pressure on the company.

I even stated, that I understand the need to do business in a pandemic and hosting the CPAC gathering was not why I was going to boycott them. It was the Choice that they made when they allowed their hotel space to be transformed into a Nazi rune that led to this decision.

I encourage as many of you as possible to do the same.

I am going to ask my companies travel group to do the same. In pre-Covid times, many conferences that people from the company would present had Hyatt as a host or partner hotel.

Not sure if it will do any good -- but this is my Quixote attempt for Monday morning.
