DFA - democracyforamerica.com,
asks me "Please tell us what your most important issue is for 2009 and why: "
OK, you asked..
I answer:
acknowledging, and then FIXING the BROKEN allopathic drug / pharmaceutical industry model of
"health care" --- which IS ACTUALLY .. a LEADING CAUSE of DEATH and DISEASE .
IATROGENESIS = death by doctor, and none other than the somewhat PRO pharmaceutical organ of the status-quo medical industry:
"Journal of the American Medical Association," plainly states:
"iatrogenesis is the 3rd leading cause of death in the U.S."
Other statistics from less supportive sources clearly indicate that the medical system is the #1
leading cause of death. How BROKEN can something BE ?!
Meanwhile, the pharmaceutical industry reps are ever-present hovering around doctors' offices, buying expensive meals, catering the famous "free lunch."
Not to mention the fact that what was previously and STILL SHOULD BE.. illegal
is pharmaceutical companies ADVERTISING TO THE PUBLIC
with typically deceptive advertising practices..
(smarmy muzak background, gorgeous model who looks high on something ... voiceover seductively murmurs "ask your prescriber" for Numbzital
- no longer is it even "ask your doctor" but ask your VENDING MACHINE "prescriber" for "happy pill of the month"
(get 'em quick before they're off the market due to discoveries of illegal tampering with FDA approval process &/or hundreds of deaths from "side effect" !)
REALLY THIS HAS GOT TO STOP.
The pharmaceutical industry is the most profitable industry in the U.S. (measured on profit vs gross income)
The pharmaceutical industry is also arguably largely responsible as one of (if not #1 of)
the leading causes of death in the U.S.
We're not yet even TALKING about the leading causes of all kinds of other physical and social ills !
How many people who are not drugged up to their eyeballs ACTUALLY BELIEVE that school kids should be taking psychiatric pharmaceuticals ?!
This is so wrong !
This is SO fricken fascist and so NOT democratic !

Happy Valentine's day .. to cyber-singles .. all of Us who may be Persons someday ;-)

Dear Ms. Craigslist singles correspondent:

Thanks for the note; no worries on falling out of contact
--- MUCH more common than not, I've come to know,
when dealing with "virtual persons"
Seems we craigslisters (etc) have by&large
not developed our mmm..
notions of cyberpeople as "real"
we become real to each other (if ever ;)
apparently
only after meeting "in the flesh."
Since this makes a lot of sense to me anyhow
and more importantly since this seems to be
"The Way It Is"
I've developed my own adaptation
which though somewhat odd
is in fact "in keeping" with my overall beingness
whereby I enjoy the email by-play
feel some of the personhood of my cyber-correspondents
allow myself to feel the Fundamental Reality
of mental / emotional / spirit-ish connectedness
and allow You/them all the latitude of responding or not
...dropping off the face of the map
dropping back in
etc
It's not just you
It's not about me
simply a microcosm of
the being of human
as human is being cyberppl
no worries =;-)


If your yearnings start turning
toward a companion
dedicated to offbeat singularity
incapable of conservatism
other than as the wolf in sheep's clothing
;-)
perhaps we will yet meet


It is instructive perhaps
the apparent dissonance
between your stated "craigslist persona"
laundry list of qualities
and your present paramour


I'm finding it more "real" than not
to ascribe those craigslist lists
to passing fancies
partial expressions of only the
known self
...known only TO "the known self"
thus devoid of Shadow
devoid of perspective
UnReal...


Cartoons drawn by the hand
of the cartoon character
-as it were ;-)


anyhow.


Happy Sunny St. Valentine's day


Enjoy your life, your music, your lovin' !
