Well as long as the White House is watching where their money goes I guess 125 is a smaller number in the grand scheme of things.

Ever wonder why Toyota never shows pictures of the land where the metals are harvested for those lovely batteries? How about all the energy being used and abused to run these huge factories where the metals are separated and built into batteries?

I wonder who those execs give financial support to?

In most of the world a bunch of crooks would be illegal and might be named the mafia etc.
But in the usofa the bunch of crooks can be legal and might be called CEO's etc.
