By Ralph Nader November 24, 2021 They didn’t pontificate or boast. They just improved the health, safety, and economic conditions for the American people.

“It is a strange settlement without Boeing having to guarantee any dollars whatsoever. Plaintiffs gave up even the right to even argue for punitive damages in the Ethiopian manslaughter crash.

By Ralph Nader October 22, 2021 “Mush” barks McConnell and forty-nine Republican Senators, as if tied to a dog sled obey. The malicious McConnell – easily the most powerfully brutish, corporatist, citizen-blocking, lawless, corrupt Senator in modern American history – doesn’t even bother polling his Senators for their yea or nay on a myriad of…
