    Take two, or more, pills and call me (if you can) in the morning.

    “Ask your doctor about…”

    I ask his educated opinion of what is best for me, The TV commercials are not who gave me the exam and do not know.

    A study was conducted among doctors who prescribed anything the patient asked for. When asked why, the number one answer was: Because it would take too long to explain why the patient’s suggestion was a bad idea.

    Best health care system in the world, my ass.

    Are they trying to develop a vaccine for greed?

    “Medicare part D was the best thing that ever happened to big Pharma. They’re cleaning up from pill popping seniors.”

    That isn’t working as well as it might for them. The insurers are refusing to cover physician ordered meds, and seniors aren’t buying, since they are mostly on fixed incomes.

    They got a little out of sync on that one. Maybe BigPharma will be sufficiently annoyed to take time off from inventing new conditions to treat us for, and fight for their share of the pie. Maybe then more of us can get the medication we need, instead of the meds they want to feed us.

    YMMV, of course.

    “But, doctors too watch TV , probably less than we do…they are smarter…:”

    They don’t need to watch TV. BigPharma delivers their marketing (and samples) right to their offices.

    And, of course, now they have WebMD to guide their prescribing habits … we probably aren’t supposed to know that WebMD is financed by BigPharma and other entities with a vested interest in peddling bad medical practise, and destructive drugs.

    We are the subjects of medical experimentation. With the full complicity of our government.

    Ain’t freedom grand?

    In the case of Limbaugh, he freely admits that he has one half of his brain tied behind his back, just to make it fair. So far, his opposition is mostly petty personal attacks without substance.

    My doctor prescribed a placebo for my hypochondria, but I don’t think it’s working….

    For the dark view of Boxer-Care, one might presume?

    Totally accurate and perceptive ’toon, but those conned by the corporate machine, or just “dittoheads” will never understand, or accept their own failure to make contact with any reality.

    btw: There’s also the fact they invent a drug, then have to invent a medical condition that needs it. Interesting too that they come out with a drug for a disease, find out it’s ineffective, so they then find ANOTHER condition FDA will let them sell it for !!

    They are only producing new compounds through chemistry. When you have a new compound, you then find a use for it. The research targets are notoriously difficult to hit and things often go astray. Not being able to discern any detailed concept of how things all work together makes success sparse. But there is often a serendipitous effect that allows the compound to be used as a remedy for some other entirely unrelated condition. They are working on the raw edge of a vast unknown, learning as they go.

    Hawking ultimately relented and allowed as how any singularity must vent. My personal interpretation is that the venting takes place on another level of force that has no spectral signature within ordinary space.
