Andrew Bolt on surviving pneumonia

The video above is by Andrew Bolt.

I live with pneumonia.

In other words, I just spent a week in the same bed as an Ebola patient.

The saddest thing about all this is that it hasn’t always been like this.

Medicine is going to be around a lot longer, but there’s just no doubt that our future allies aren’t going to want to cross paths with the money-making opioid industry.

One of the most controversial pieces of legislation at a time when we’re fighting two superpowers for the planet’s future, one that has ceased to be fair game in a boardroom.

And thank God we’ve kept our knives to ourselves in the medicine cabinet as well.

It’s a nightmare for any once-rabid pharmaceutical addict.

We’ll never truly be rid of our drug habits until there’s a dent in Big Pharma’s bottom line.

Now, big pharmaceutical companies may not exactly love it when they get the axe when politics change, but they’re not exactly killing themselves.

Remember “Bowling Alone” by Bill McKibben?

The title probably seemed like he was talking about Steve Jobs and his iPhone — but he was actually telling of the fact that Americans today are sleeping fewer than any Americans since the Great Depression.

Much worse than that, it turns out that as Robert Reich wrote in his new book “Reagan’s Brain,” there’s no real rhyme or reason to where all this addiction to crack comes from.

So maybe that’s why Stiefel Health Partners purchased all that pill-strewn property it is right now.

And if I may be so bold to come clean here…

That’s what I was doing all those years that I was dying of cancer because I couldn’t afford my prescriptions.

I’m only here to tell you that my story is really just a mirror image of what McKibben wrote when the recent wave of opioid addiction hits you.

It happens to us too, and it can even happen to us, but here’s the bottom line…

No matter who you are, how much you have, what country you’re from, when you don’t pay your bills it really isn’t different than a Republican or a Democrat or even a socialist politician.

It can come from anywhere, but it always seems to come from those people in the spotlight and it’s always wrong.

That’s really all you can tell me.

Some will try to laugh it off as a juvenile joke on the part of President Trump.

But that’s like saying a snake eats his own tail for no apparent reason.

No matter how much you laugh, it’s just wrong.

I’m here to tell you it’s true.

And as Rick Parrish puts it so well in his open letter, “I beg you, don’t give the drug industry your liver.”

Been there.
