Hey, could John Oliver and the team do research on Garrett Gunderson and his financial books? Or about FIRE vs Cash Flow Banking. Is Garrett a scam? I'm so confused. And there's only so much research one person can do... HELP!

No body care for those workers and that will not change and no matter how much noise there is no body cares. I worked in the UK for a stock take company on a so called "0 hours" contract and sometimes I was working for more then 30 consecutive days without a day off, many times my shifts were longer then 16 hours without been paid extra time and with a total disregard to health and safety.

My favorite Dr. Seuss book was (The Cat's Quizzer) "Are you Smarter than the Cat in the Hat?" I know now, thanks to Joe Biden, poor kids are just as smart as the cat in the hat. Another favorite of mine was... If I Ran The Zoo. That is the book Joe Biden is currently reading, in order to run the Democratic Party, and Government.

I mean To Think about it meat should be taken care more than other food 'cause virus came from it, I agree with some religions about eating not meat like Jewish religion they believe meat is a sin and there are people who eat only vegetables and it's a good one to care yourself think about make good decisions, stay safe stay fit stay thin a country who's calling advanced should promote healthy food for people U.S. seems to need step forward like a previous comment, do not keep eating meat and fast food it comes back life worse it's a healthy advice if ye want to live better without any health issues ask for this with a Doctor and Do not drink soda and you'll know.

People can be horrified all they want, this isn't going to really END until Americans stop feeling like we need cheap meat fourteen meals a week. Regulation might tinker and improve things a little, but the whole system is driven by our collective appetite for cheap meat. It is possible to find meat that was pastured on small independent farms and processed at small local meat locker facilities. But guess what? It's more expensive. So including meatless meals in our diets is also part of the solution. If you're interested in switching to non-factory meat, the Eat Wild website has info on farmers. Farmers markets are another good way to make connections.

How can it be a $10,000 dollar check and blank at the same time? Blank Check means the amount has not been filled in FFS. Not that they didn't fill the account information.
