So Alex Jones just got fined One Billion dollars for claiming that the Sandy Hook massacre was faked. I don't know much about the guy other than he's supposed to be a conspiracy theory guy and that the left hate him. In (only) my opinion this is just more evidence of the downward spiral that the US, and the entire world seems to be in at the moment. I'm not even discussing the case itself or if it was justified. I'm specifically talking about the Court awarding damages. Most of us here will never be a millionaire. A lot of people can't even really conceive of what a million dollars would feel like having. Yet this guy got fined not just a million dollars, not just 50, or even 100 million. But One Thousand Million dollars. 1000 times the amount that most of us can't even imagine having. For hurting somebody's feelings. That sounds harsh but it is also true. He hurt peoples feelings and now has to pay(lol) One BEELLION Dollars(in my best Dr. Evil voice). Really. And anyone spouting the " This will send a message to others" bullshit can shove that right up your ass. What message is it sending? Say something bad and you will get fined an imaginary amount of money? That you or your 'victims' will never see? Don't ever say mean things or else? Do not speak your opinion if it against the narrative or you will be financially ruined? That Gerard Butler line from Law Abiding Citizen keeps coming back to haunt me. "It's time to bring the whole, diseased, corrupt, Temple down. It's going to be Biblical."
