Been there done that

It really took this long for the Pentagon to lift the ban that prohibits women from serving in combat roles?

Have We Met?—The Dialogue Between Past and Present

Moore Takes Aim at Both Parties in Fahrenheit 11/9

Macroeconomics 101 tells us that corporations are beholden to one thing—their stockholders. Humans do not enter into this equation.
