hmmmmmmmmmmmm.....

"To pressure state and federal regulators to investigate Herbalife, an act that alone could cause its stock to dive, his team has helped organize protests, news conferences and letter-writing campaigns in California, Nevada, Connecticut, New York and Illinois, although several of the people who signed the letters to state and federal officials say they do not remember sending them, an investigation by The New York Times has found."

↑ all you need to know...the states mentioned above are the epitome of corrupt liberal states.

I finally finished reading the rest of that link beast......that guy IS a dick. What I hope happens is that they cannot come up with enough "victims" and the FTC, instead, goes after ackman . He loses the billion for his investors....and goes to jail. While in jail...they confiscate all of his belongings and possessions.......sells them off and pays off the investors (even those scumbags knew what was up). When bigshot gets out of jail, he's broke.

i thought i would look this up and see how Mr. Ackman has made out....

he is one slick cucumber.

Quote:
Ackman’s Herbalife turnaround has been even more dramatic. Shares of the diet shake seller closed at $37.34 the day before Ackman stepped onto a Manhattan stage to explain why he believed Herbalife was a pyramid scheme that would collapse. In the months that followed, Herbalife’s stock would trade as high as $83.51. It seemed like Ackman was in trouble until March of 2014, when Herbalife disclosed it was under investigation by the Federal Trade Commission. Herbalife seems to have since changed its business operations in a meaningful way and Herbalife’s revenue and profit machine has started to sputter as a result. Herbalife’s stock is down by more than 50% in 2014 and was recently trading for $38.41.
not much of a win or loss....but Bill has a crystal ball methinks.

another way they bastardize and repurpose First Amendment rights....

he may have the first amendment right to say it, but they'd have the right to not allow him to say it on their campus...at their expense
