RANT: Big Medicine may be playing “We, The Sheeple”

We Can’t Afford To Cure Cancer
By Bill Sardi
June 7, 2016

*** begin quote ***

Someone has said there are just too many jobs in the pursuit of a cancer cure to allow any therapy to be proven and put into practice.  Recognize the nation is dotted with cancer research centers that hold billions of dollars of debt.  For example, the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Washington holds $176 million of debt.  [Moody’s Investor Service] Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, the nation’s cancer research center, holds $1.9 billion of debt.  [Moody’s Investor Service]  A cancer cure would leave research centers like these on the hook for loans that could not possibly be paid back. 

*** end quote ***

It’s a scary and cynical.

But one must be always suspect the monetary motives.

Unfortunately we can’t overlook the example of “March of Dimes”.

They set out to cure polio. And they did it. Or at least, Sabin and Salk did. 

Then they “retargeted” to “birth defects”.

Never have to worry about going out of business again.

And that ½ million dollar salary is safe!

Argh!

East Brunswick: Street Signs Memorialize Township’s Fallen Heroes
By PAUL ENDLER, SPECIAL TO TAP INTO EAST BRUNSWICKJune 1, 2016 at 10:13 AM

*** begin quote ***

EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ – Memorial Day, originally known as Decoration Day, to commemorate those who died during the Civil War, was observed in East Brunswick this afternoon before several hundred citizens in attendance at the Veterans Park at the Municipal Complex in town. It was the 20th Annual Memorial Day Observance in East Brunswick with Mayor Kevin McEvoy hosting  the event as Master of Ceremonies.

Those that have paid the ultimate price are more important to remember than any politician!

RANT: Found something worse than TSA, Mexican Immigration, USA Customs, and USA Immigration

Tuesday, May 24, 2016

Went to Cancun, actually Playa Del Carmen, from EWR.

TSA 15 minute wait. Everyone was pleasant and efficient.

Mexican Immigration 5 minute wait. Everyone was pleasant and efficient.

Coming home, ditto. Couldn’t have been better.

However the private free market screwed up royally.

Have Lomas Travel for the transfer from Cancun to the hotel. Waited in the sun 90 minutes while they fumbled and bumbled to arrange a ride. Argh!

Arrives at the Hotel (Sandos Playa something). Waited 30 minutes to check in. I was next in line the whole time. There were three clerks checking in: one couple, one trio, and one quartet. In that 30 minutes, the mob gathered. There was no line aka queue. No one much gave a <synonym for excrement>. Argh!

I have some other rants about the hotel — like they don’t give you a map of the property — or explain that the internal shuttle stops running at 11PM and it’s a big place — the room arragnements for the group were screwed up for everyone . But those were minor in comparison.

Argh!

RANT: Is “global warming” today’s version of the 1970’s “global cooling”?

The Benefits of Global Warming
By Butler Shaffer
May 21, 2016

*** begin quote ***

Religious dogmas can find their roots in scientific as well as theological thinking. Questioning either the “intelligent design” or “big bang” explanations for the origins of the universe can evoke angry responses from true-believers on either side of the issue. In the case of the High-Church Warmingists, a verifiable fact (i.e., increased temperature) is merged with an empirically unfounded assertion (i.e., human activity is the causal explanation) to provide true believers the rationale for their rule over mankind. Those who deny this article of faith are targeted for dismissal in academia and even televised weather shows.

*** end quote ***

It’s all about the “rule over mankind”.

Like the “High Priests” of old, it’s nice to have job where you don’t sweat and live high on the hog.

Of course, those who live too high on the hog at the expense of the rabble, soon find themselves on the guillotine.

Wonder when the rabble will revolt against the Hollywood “stars”, politicians, and bureaucrats?

RANT: Anyone following the “news”?

Wednesday, May 18, 2016

Seems like a lot of folks are registering to vote in New Jersey or switching parties.

Could this be the “groundswell” of all those people who never vote?

That could change the whole electoral political landscape.

I think it may be the Libertains time.

Fiscally conservative with very small Gooferment and a classical liberal approach to social issues (i.e., myob).

If the USA survives, like the USSR, “big” is bad.

What would cause the leading cancer doctor in the world to fly across the country to the funeral of a boy of 8? That’s part of today’s story.

Past guest Roger McCaffrey discusses the terrible ordeal his family endured when they discovered their 4 1/2-year-old son, John, had CML, a stem-cell cancer. The story involves not only a family’s anguish, but also a miracle drug, insurance companies, politics, and the FDA.

He is co-author with brother Eugene of Players Choice: Major League Ballplayers Vote on Their All-Time Greats, which contains a foreword by George H.W.

I listened to this and it saddened me.

It makes me think that I didn’t fight hard enough to save Our Girl, my wife of forty years. 

That thought brings me to tears, literally.

While I thought of 13 things I could have done better, I never sat down an wrote the “PIA: The Patient Advocate Handbook”. 

This podcast moves this project to the front burner. 

Argh!
