Vioxx, Celebrex, Aleve

Don’t Worry, The FDA Will Save Us!

What about these bizarre turnings all of a sudden against all our painkillers? And while serious questions are being raised about the safety of them, one hears some doctors on TV shrugging and saying there was little reason for the existence and prominence of Vioxx and Celebrex to begin with, that Advil and Tylenol were effective enough against these pains for many people? Now what’s that about? They weren’t talking like that before. Have the pill-peddlers in fact promoted and advertised us into believing we can’t live without these medicines? Are we that stupid or controllable by ad agencies? I know that the pharmaceutical companies can trot out droves of well-paid (ahem) doctors who’ll testify to why we NEED fancy pain-killers and I know the reasons and ulterior motives why the companies would want them to say it, but why are these other doctors going on TV and saying, in effect, “Don’t ask me why they were developed or how we got so hooked on them, the others are just as good.” And why did the FDA scientists and desk jockeys fall like dominoes for this bullshit instead of doing their duty and warning the public about the risks?

It’s my opinion that we ought to cut to the chase—just burn the FDA to the ground in broad daylight and then shoot the sonsabitches as they come running out with their hair on fire. The same goes for the facilities and CEO’s of the pharmaceutical companies. Kill them, dammit! They are clearly murderous and incompetent bastards if this is the kind of science they’re practicing for the good of the American consumer. In brief, they should be eliminated from the face of the earth, and the next crowd of greedy bastards who comes along will have a little something practical to MAKE their shriveled consciences stay alive. I’m no expert about chemistry or science, but I know what a good kick in the ass or a bullet whizzing past their ear will do for jerkoffs who’ve never been held accountable. I’m sorry to say that our country, particularly within our government, has forgotten how far a few executions might go toward making bureaucrats and business executives stop acting as if nothing matters. You can tell me I’m crude, but I haven’t killed or injured anyone like the pill-peddlers have.

Okay, I lied about shorter posts. I meant to do it, but I just got mad about this particular thing!
