    Pretty rare that I agree with Levant but he has it right on this one.

    Not really. Remington is not responsible - in spite of a busload of "transference" or projection from delusionals - for Sandy Hook.

    I use to drink a lot of Miller Lite beer. I don't at all, anymore. They, are still producing a lot of Miller Lite.

    suit against the drug companies is like suits against the gun makers...........a legal product....works as advertised......complete with instructions and warnings and directions....

    blame the drug or the gun.......blame the FFL or the doctor.....blame the company that made the gun or drug......

    for some reason, the user is not responsible for misuse........you know, the one that is actually "hands-on" and in control of the product.....

    What about the story going around that says that big pharma is only interested in finding and promoting drugs that will maintain the patient, not cure him? Yes, they expend a lot of money doing research, but are they actually looking for a cure or they only want to find ways to maintain the patient alive but not cure him?

    There are rumors that say that cancer can already be cure but big pharma, together with some hospitals do not want such cure to be available. How true are those rumors or are they simply another form of urban legend?

    There is cures for many types of cancers but much of it depends of how far along it is too and what parts of the body it has affected.


    I agree with what deputy said above but at the same time i do know there were some doctors that have way over prescribed opioids too. Between both it has caused some major problems. Now it's just the opposite, doctors are scared to give out opioids when people need them. Examples, about 8-9 years ago i had a BB removed from my foot that was there for 20 odd years but then got infected. Had minor surgery and literally had 3-4 stitches and was given like 20 oxycotin pills, that's the one they call hillbilly heroin.. Earlier this year i had severe back problems and was given a small amount of hydrocodones and even after surgery i was only given another very small amount. I certainly didn't need the oxy's for my foot but could have used something more with my back problems being i could barely walk.

    I am weak. I became addicted to drugs. Its the pharmacutical companies fault.

    I am a fool. I drive in an unsafe manner. I was in an accident and lost my legs. Its the automobile manufacturers fault.

    I am stupid. I shot myself with my gun. Its the gun makers fault.

    I am lazy. I can't hold a job. Its big businesses fault.

    The list goes on and on and on. Its all about a lack of personal responsibility.

    If you ever listen to those into natural healing. It is common knowledge. All over the world they are curing cancer. It is a simple treatment. 1) Detox the body. 2) Boost the immune system. .... It works. ... Look at all the money our MedicineMen make on cancer. They won't so much as talk about anything that doesn't make them money.

    On the responsibility....

    That's odd. You like guns, support the Second Amendment and the Constitution, don't you? Seems like we'd agree on far more than we'd disagree.

    Natural healing is a scam. Oh, sure, there are some things that you can do without a doctor to make yourself feel better but until the evolution of big-pharma, reliable and safe medicines from poppies, antibiotics, etc., the expected lifespan anywhere in the entire planet was less than 35 years and, globally, less than 30 years.
