Dishonorable drug sales US Tops the World

Only Two Countries in the World Have Legalized This and the U.S. Is One of Them

Story at-a-glance

 The United States is one of only two countries that allows direct-to-consumer (DTC) advertising, a marketing bonanza thatís turned America into a medicated mass of people whoíve been brain-washed into thinking that taking pills will make everything better―even for ailments you might not have
 DTC advertising is a brilliant and very profitable move for Big Pharma, which has effectively transformed consumers into their very own sales reps
 Data shows that every $1,000 spent on drug ads produces 24 new patients, and that prescription rates for drugs promoted with DTC ads were nearly seven times greater than those without such promos
 DTC advertising is not only unethical, itís a dangerous practice that puts countless numbers of people on medications they often do not really need, all for the sake of increasing drug company profits. By Dr. Mercola.

We had been discussing how SuperBowl and other events seem to have less beer and more drug ads. Whose making money from this advertising? We say bring back beer... Cheaper and solves a lot ....

I'd like to hear from those Texas secessionists now....

How would that work again?

As an atheist....

I think I have more soul, more heart, more "moral compass" than anyone in the Administration..

I think I even have more respect for Jesus than they do... Egads..

Charles Robert Jenkins, detained in NK 40 years.

....."In North Korea, I lived a dog's life," he said in a rare interview, as he drove his boxy Subaru through Sado Island's rice paddies and sleepy villages. "Ain't nobody live good in North Korea. Nothing to eat. No running water. No electricity. In the wintertime you freeze ó in my bedroom, the walls were covered in ice."....

....In 1965, Jenkins was a U.S. Army sergeant posted to South Korea. But he was unhappy with his assignment and worried it could get worse. He feared his unit's nighttime patrols along the border were too provocative and would get them killed; he feared he'd be sent to die in Vietnam. He got depressed, began drinking heavily and made a decision that he'd regret for the rest of his life: to go AWOL.....

.....For eight years, the North Korean government held him in a spartan room with three other American defectors ó Jerry Wayne Parrish, 19; Larry Abshier, 19; and James Dresnok, 21....

....In 1980, Jenkins acquired a wife: North Korean authorities moved into his home Hitomi Soga, a 21-year-old Japanese woman who had been abducted from Japan two years earlier.... (more)

"TRUMP DOESN'T HAVE A SOUL, HE HAS AN OPEN SORE"

I know it repeats the video posted. I just wanted to repeat and see it in big print.

Listening to Arnold pan Trump

I was wondering which Republicans might still have a soul...

Schwarzenegger, Kasich, Huntsman, Steve Schmidt, Michael Steele?

Anyone?

Rec. me...

I am wondering if I am missing some nuances in the recommendation of a thread.

I read a thread that grabs my interest. Folks are commenting.. Others are commenting on other's comments. A lot of generated interest for sure..

I see it has 700 views, it has 28 replies but only 4 recs.

Why so few recs. on an otherwise happening thread?

Thanks for enlightening me!




Why are they called Republicans

Why is the word "public" in their name?

They hate the public..

Maybe Reprivates. or Repirates .. would apply.

When discussion is slow on DU... Why

do we fall back to the divisive subjects of "Democratic purity" or whose fault it is we have dump...

Is it trolls, who know we will take sides over these topics? I have given up arguing these circular stand offs. Trouble with circles they don't end.

People have to vote their conscience. I realize some folks don't have one.

Samuel L Jackson sings

Just saw Samuel L. Jackson singing on a Capital One Commercial..

That man can really sing.. Does he sing regularly? An album or anything?
