Amen! Mammon (the god of wealth & greed) is a jealous god, one that demands human sacrifice; Take note that many people will have to die before the

I don't consider myself any kind of preacher (because I disdain ORGANIZED religions), but some religious tenants
do hold truth if you know how
to see it. Such as the proverb, "Love of money is the root of all evil." It's not to say that money & wealth itself is evil...Evil comes when
someone loves money more than loving his/her fellow human beings.

Personally, I reject pharmaceuticals when Doctor's try to push them on me and ask about natural remedies. You can guess how well that goes
I don't have to guess, brother (Or would that be "sister?" It's hard to tell on the internet). The best reply I got from the doctor is to seek out
an herbalist; But the doctor couldn't even give me any specific recommendations for an Herbalist. Also, guess what is NOT covered under insurance

I once had a chat with a doctor who told me that in Private, GPs were quite for homoeopathic remedies, but the Health Services (Government) imposed
strict penalties on Drs that push for their use.
That's "hitting the nail on the thumb." I reserve my twisting of the common phrase for describing the painfully
Guess from where originates the pressure on the government to levy such penalties on doctors?...You guessed it! Big Pharma! There are a few retired
doctors who have written books about the benefits of natural cures & remedies, if you care to look for such books. Just
for "natural cures," "natural remedies" & "homeopathic medicine" (Scroogle uses Google search, but
sloughs off the cookies that Google would put on your
computer for their data-mining). Those doctor-authors retired before publishing those
books because the government would have slapped their wrists hard, if they had written those books while still engaging in an active medical

not all big pharma is bad.. speaking from experience try having a herniated disc in your back and experience pain so intense you feel blood is going
to start pouring from your eyes and you become suicidal. Then take some diazepam and codeine and feel no pain.. it then allows you to engage in
physio as a more natural solution.
I do agree that pharma can be good...If used for a specific purpose & applied in a responsible manner. But far too often, what could be good winds up
twisted when the path of greed is walked. Just like the phrase, "Guns don't kill people. People kill people" states that every person must be
responsible for the actions they take, Big Pharma should also heed that same responsibility for their own actions.

I fully agree. Given current events what I find absolutely hilarious is the lemmings who have yet to embrace the notion that their governments might
not be all that benevolent.
The US Founding Forefathers had it right when they described "government" as a necessary evil; "Necessary" because people need
organization to help manage certain day-to-day duties, such as defense from invasion, conducting trade with foreign nations & the
enforcement/arbitration of Just Law when people have a beef between each other; "Evil" because the Founding Forefathers were well-educated & knew
that history has proven time & time again that governments will always seek to turn against the people by growing too large & ursurping control over
For a good example, most US Government Officers spout out rhetoric about "upholding Democracy" & "the spread of Democracy"...But all along, they
act in Breech of Oath of Office under the Constitution because it tells them that they must guarantee
form of government!
Refer to Article 4, Section 4
By that Breech of Oath, the Law states that they have instantly self-revoked all Powers & Authorities granted to their Office; After that first Actin
in Breech of Oath, anything they continue to do or say in the name of that Office is a Crime
& they have become nothing less than
to Lawfully Elected/Appointed Government Officials. So, speaking earlier about how Big Pharma should take heed of the responsibility
for their actions, it seems the government should be doing the same.
Thomas Jefferson has been quoted to say, "Of all my study of history, most bad government is the result of too big of a government."
