The recent deaths as a result of vaping adulterated vape cartridges are an unfortunate result of a human demand driven into the dark corners of the black market.

There really is no difference between the deaths today as a result of vaping and the deaths which resulted from adulterated alcohol during alcohol prohibition from 1920-1933. There is no difference.

On the evening fear broadcasts they are flashing the giant letters “THC” as if it were the culprit but we all know that is not the case.

During prohibition the public wanted to enjoy alcohol. The shortsightedness of the elected body desiring to stay in office outlawed legal alcohol production yet the demand did not disappear. The net effect is that the black market stepped in and one of the side effects of alcohol prohibition was bath tub gin. As many as 50,000 drinkers died (more were blinded or maimed) from bath tub gin, so today six vaping deaths would seem to be statistically insignificant in comparison. But the deaths are indeed significant in that they indicate the problem with making something illegal a majority of the population desires and driving the demand into the black market where resides a lack of regulation and quality control.

Our current laws concerning consensual behaviors are making the country sick in so many ways that when you look at an elected official that is against marijuana legalization you have to ask if that person is either paid by the black marketeers, just plain stupid, or doesn’t care for their constituents? In any case, they don’t belong there.

In these recent vaping deaths we see that history repeats itself.

When did Facebook become a front for The Communist Party?

If you are going to allow political parties to have pages on Facebook you will have to make sure that their pages are open for discussion. You cannot let them make outlandish and false statements about the condition of the country and then when someone comes along and points out that they sound ridiculous, they filter those comments from their pages and block the user from editing their own comments and not being able to defend themselves.

We have the same cameras here. You’ll see them in particular at intersections. I do not know to what extent the software and operating systems capture your information and the media does not look into it for some reason. Sometimes, when I’m sitting there wondering why I am waiting so long at the light and there is no traffic at all moving crosswise, I flip the camera the bird. Or when I am stopped at every intersection as I move along alone on the road in the very early morning and it feels like my progress is being slowed for some reason, I flip the camera the bird. I’m sure they have a file on me.

The overwhelming support for the legalization of marijuana as well as the rapidly expanding national movement to legalize marijuana for adult use at the state level indicates that whatever party that supports the legalization of marijuana nationally will win the next presidential election. As a “single” issue for voters, the legalization of marijuana will supersede the other two major single issues of abortion and gun rights.

If you are afraid of socialized medicine, all the country has to do is to start regulating health care correctly once again.

Health care in America was much less socialized prior to Reagan deregulating health care. Ever since health care was deregulated, the socialized systems designed to pay for health care in America, Medicare and Medicaid, have expanded exponentially now that regulations have been dismantled. Prices have soared way beyond what the average citizen can pay out-of-pocket, something that was quite common prior to Reagan deregulating health care.

If you are afraid of seeing a socialized system of health care in America, then we must begin regulating health care correctly again. That’s all that is needed.

All of the rhetoric about socialized medicine coming from both parties is a false narrative designed to steer you away from the subject of a health care system that is properly regulated and both parties are involved in that misdirection.

The inability of our elected who claim to be conservative even when in the majority to curtail the activity of or control the size and cost of all levels of government indicates that the government itself has at once burst from the reins of democracy.

As I listen to the local radio wench squawk with the local female candidate for an open congressional seat, as they chatter about why one health care system is better than the other and why the left’s system will bankrupt the country while the right’s system is better, it occurs to me that both parties are at fault for not properly regulating the health care industry. At one time, the health care industry was regulated. Providers were not allowed to advertise in certain ways and places (advertising costs are huge and passed on the to patient), insurance companies could not refuse due to pre-existing conditions, and health care in America was pretty good, certainly better than it is now.

Now, what we have are two major parties subject to lobbying from big pharma and a media hungry for health care advertising dollars, so much so that they don’t care about the patient, not one bit.

We don’t need to socialize health care, that’s the misdirection, the fear they are offering and both parties are complicit. We only need to regulate health care properly, like we once did.

It is time to return to a system of health care that is properly regulated, for the health of the nation.

Greed may be good, as some psychologists believe, but not when it comes to health care.

Health care in America is a system consumed by an unhealthy, unregulated level of greed and it is making America sick.

We don’t need to “socialize” medicine in America, that’s just the fear tactic both major parties are using to control your decisions about health care in America. Health care in America just needs to be properly regulated which is what big pharma and other health care special interests fear the most. Take their fear and use it against them.
