Escapism in life and survival

2 posts in this topic

Escapism  is a very bad habit no matter if it is by mentally allowing yourself to drift or focus on things not based in reality or the moment.

This is also one of the main reasons for drug abuse and all the Ism's from alcoholism, over eating. to gambling.  Hormones from mental effects of comfort food to Opioid dependency.

I am on this because a friend who is being treated at a satellite V.A. facility and because I do not know all the particulars I have to stop short of making any accusations, all I do know is he has had some very bad symptoms and  real deep wounds and is getting to a point where he is not mobile. My consideration is that he is complaining of constant pain and because most all the effective pain medications are opioid based it "appears" that the Rules or issuing medication are not pain related or reasonable threshold that there must be pain doctors are no longer given the ability to prescribe pain medications and it is coming to a point where I fear that more people will be committing suicide or not using doctors and opt for street drugs in lieu of real treatment starting an avalanche of real medial problems and crime.

Vacuums create drug kingpins like prohibition  created a move wealthy mob, the FEDS put a hurt on the mob and gangs came in it is the stupidity of lawyers and the criminal justices system with pressure of well meaning do gooders has always been the problem.  Prescriptions are not enforced there is no database for issue of any drug that needs to be tracked for a number of reasons.  People in pain are almost as bad off as violent people because their minds are not rational.  

One of the reasons making this post is that we all need to be in on the dialog and not allow a bureaucracy the power to make us all miserable because what next painful dentistry if we are not going to allow people with long term pain help then no one needs it or for dentistry or pregnancy or day surgery because where does it end and why should people become doctors if they are not in control of helping the patient ?

Opioid are no better or worse than any other addictive substance I have seen people over 400 pounds are we going to put a limit on their buying of food or sugars, We know that diet soda actually causes weight gain and excessive salt and some of the sugar substitutes have been blamed for cancers and medical problems then the companies make a small chemical alteration and it is now a new fangled product yet to have a history of medial injuries we are being tricked and the trickery is harming people and making corporations millions and billions.

I just read a piece in a seniors paper that stated that copper is a cold remedy they made some odd bold statements that as I recall were attributed to silver. I do not want to throw cold water on the powers that be but anything including vitamins and natural remedies have been under scrutiny by the FD A for control and be brought under prescribed medications I do not mind a registry as doctors need to know as some medications and homeopathic remedies can interact dangerously but as far as making everything a controlled substance is ridiculous, remember that grapefruit juice is a well known contributor to efficacy of medications and can like alcohol neuter the medications effect of magnify. St. Johns wart and some common sleeping aids can when mixed with prescriptions in the right combinations cause serious illness even death directly or indirectly.

I do not want to seem insensitive but when people blame objects for the death of loved ones I get a real pain in my posterior, first if we're so damed worried about guns because they cause death I guess then alcohol and vehicles should be first on the list.  Opioid's  are being blamed for all the societal ills of bullying lying hate bigotry inflicted on people causing panic attacks depression self loathing paranoia and many negative human actions, people in the eye of the storm due to these human created issues look for something to ease the perceived  pain, once a fix works more is desired,  instead of confronting or trying to overcome the social issue many choose to bury their feelings in the many facets of abuses and there are hundreds some people turn to sex drugs medications food others go into buying tons of stuff to fill the void in their lives.  I have seen people buy hundreds of dollars of scratch-offs and win then buy more looking for the top prize and that will not satisfy. Married people with numerous conquests needing more more more spiraling  down into all kinds of addictions that are just as addictive, debilitating  or destructive. and taking the person to the brink of suicide even murder.

Our government is over reacting  and instead of creating a database to provide us better wellbeing instead, the way they are going about it is going to explode the drug trade and we already know that for years the deep state has trafficked illegal substances either that or members have been padding their bank accounts and retirement funds and remember heroin is an opioid so when you hear opioid addiction ask which one and the other problem is theft by a family members of legal drugs .

The government wants to turn us all into snitches, here is the problem anyone can accuse anyone of anything if the power uses this as a open warrant to invade your home property or investigate your private social media it's your fault because your being told that this is the battleground, the lines have been drawn and your on notice that "WE" as a free people either take this on or it will swallow us whole and literally be worse that the civil war your family could use this to get you out of the way put you in prison or make you a ward of the state in a mental institution. place you on a no fly list,  travel ban or watch list that is not open to the publics view / secret list like  blackball or scarlet letter for example.  many years ago a friend was accused of impropriety with his step daughter after a proper investigation he was totally exonerated but not without a whole lot of stress and pain, the daughter admitted she was mad and wanted revenge these types of incidents can get blown into some horrific accusations and people getting set up and we all know your guilty until a well paid lawyer proves otherwise.

Anything that is over used is bad for you. "Everything in moderation" is the old caution. We have thrown that out of the window and theses days its all about give me more..and make it easy to get.

Even biblical sin is about moderation.

    • LMAO, Shepard Smith was on with a guy from a group that supposedly defends reports and guess what again the phrase< "American reporter that worked for the New York post" DUH he was not an American citizen. So what are we to do fire 55.000 worker dump the stock market by 1/3rd to appease the press the same press that did not defend the rights of Alex Jones HELL at least Bill Maher gets it and admonished a group he was in front of stating he did not agree with Alex Jones but he had the right to speak his mind,  but not a peep out of Shepard smith who thinks he's a journalist he couldn't write jingles for toilet paper. they put up some amazing number like 1400 that have been killed since 1992 but out of that only 24 were targeted the rest were collateral damage during fire fights. 24 for the whole world since 1992 wholly sh*t it's an epidemic IT's Russian collusion look there's a naked woman in someones bed. When you piss someone off your likely to get killed. Hell let's nominate Koshogi for sainthood OOPS sorry he is not a Catholic he's a MUSLIM. we need to stop muslim on muslm killing LMAO or it might catch on...lets hop so. I wnat to know where are the investigations on Hillery's dead pool how about the 10,00 plus dead for invading 5 countries in 5 years ALA George Bush then more stupidity from Obama What about over 1 million Christians murdered by Islamist since 2001 not a friggin' peep women taken in war for sex slave damn little rhetoric on that what about Lois Lerner from the IRS stifling freedom of association and political freedom? against Republican groups / tea party  only.
    • Californian are running like rats off a sinking ship don't let them win election in your tow county or state, why because they have not learned a damn thing they screwed up everything possible in Commiefornia and now that it is untenable they run away.  Three quarters of all the major cities are democrats in commiefornia and a bunch have had to file for bankruptcy they promised the city workers police fire and prison / jailers that they would have a forever pension with all healthcare and increases LMAO well it is time to pay and the b@stards are going to the bathroom to avoid paying the check. Commiefornians are coming soon to a town near you remember who they are and treat them like your lazy lying brother in-law. It's not that they are bad people it's that they are stupid just like New York city dwellers the rest of the state of New York is OK but they are trapped by the city no matter how they vote or what they do locally the city is the state and makes all the laws and rules for the state everyone else is like a person that closed the door on the taxi with their coat hung in it they are along for the ride and the ending is not going to be fun. I live near enough to Houston to see what democratic leaders smell like, snake oil and money illicit money there are enough gangs and dope there to float a tanker off a sand bar, and some how it gets laundered and ends up as political contributions.  the police department pension keeps going broke and they steal it from the fire department to make up the shortfall. Tehy can't keep criminals in jail because there are too many so they let them out to prey on more working citizens but I digress this rant is about Californians. The word sh*t bird means a person that where ever they light they crap all over and leave that is the definition of any of the escapees from the major democratic cities, as in San Francisco Las Angeles, Seattle, Portland Oregon, Detroit Chicago, New York, Boston, look at what they are allowing murders minimal sentencing on drug felons handing out needles condoms and credit cards to homeless criminals (they have ongoing police records) a tax on everything and fees tolls user fees  and more controls on private property and corruption in your face. Here is a few little videos on how illegal immigration hurts American citizens keeps pay scale down and kills local jobs for local children.         GREAT VIDEO ABOUT A LIVING WAGE          
    • I want to double down on my statement that ALL how many is that, ALL governments have a hit list for years any one of political or scientific stature has been in the cross hairs of their own country or another. recently HUNDREDS of genetic scientists have been killed all over the world China and North Korea have killed people Kim had his brother killed Russia has killed more than a few with Radio active elements this is just the tip of the iceberg nation states murder people all the time how about the Princes Dianna witnesses ?  Want to talk about a death toll Bill and Hilary's count could stretch across D.C. Any youtube search even if only partially correct  makes your sphincter catch second gear. At east all of Trumps detractors are still alive. While Bill was Governor there is a recording of his brother saying Bill has a nose like a vacuum  cleaner speaking about cocaine. so White Water all the sexploits and the stories of  Clinton foundation are all political lies well you can't sweep over a hundred dead under the carpet without leaving some lumps. Presstitutes (journalists that get paid to write poison pen notes) have built a wall around the Clinton's but I see that wall starting to crack all the lies spouted by the left seem to be reality but not on Trump but on the Clinton's they colluded with Russia they corrupted the upper echelon of all the alphabet agencies into Uranium One and a host of other nefarious deals. It's hard to rob a bank as big as the U.S. government unless you have some lookouts and insiders IMHO. I don't think much of either of the BUSH family as thy touted the same line as Obama the jobs are gone and they are not coming back our economy was not as good as it could have been but then again if your working for the banks and the E.U. and not the Americans that voted you in well you see what I mean. Bush Sr. made a speech and in it, " A New World Order" that should have sent shudders up and down the voter pool but because America is like 27th on the educational level of all countries you can see where that went over their heads. Everyone knows if your not smart street or otherwise your going to get taken and the American taxpayer has been fleeced screwed and lied to for so long they expect it and look forward to it NOW that Trump is in office they are begining to wake up and see all the lies from the last 4 administrations jobs can come back law and order can be restored we can have jobs and better trade deals and taxes do not have to go up every year now he is pressing to make all departments cut 5% given time he will pay for the military and the wall if we can give him a majority in the house and senate I think healthcare will be the next domino to topple.   WHAT HAVE WE GOT TO LOOSE WE KNOW WE HAVE BEEN LIED TO FOR 40 YEARS GET OFF YOUR AZZ AND KNEES AND GO OUT AND VOTE.
    •   The 800 pound gorilla in the room is 55,000 jobs compared to one dumbazz journalist who had picked a side in this fight like all the Trump haters in our news services. Make no mistake there is nothing better than allowing thie incident to cut the throat of American jobs / manufacturing and drive down all the increased jobs that make the Obama administration look like the fools they were a quote from Obama was, "those jobs are never coming back" he was a fool then and made it worse by stating Trump would never be president.  It is not Just 55,000 jobs it is the stock market will also take a hit another reason for the left to to take a victory lap and jeer that Trump policies were pie in the sky Socialists will do anything to destroy this country "out of Chaos, order" they are doing their best to back socialists candidates who's policies will put us in the poor house, they want open boarders and then make Americans pay for their healthcare housing and food stamps and if they make another baby more more more goes out to minimum wage workers or flatbackers (whores)  I have seen this in bars that I have run, a short fall in their budget they go out and find a open wallet that needs some companionship, it's called prostitution. As far as this journalists now on fox news Harris Falkner is calling him an American based journalists to make it sound like he is an American citizen, He IS BOT. I had a lot of respect for Harris Falkner but she has shot that in the AZZ as far as I am concerned her and Don Lemon should start dating, but I don't think he's into women. Since the toppling of Rupert Murdock and his replacement I have seen a definite shift of some of the Fox news host to the left but there have been those that hated Trump from the beginning Daina Perino was a never Trumper along with Shepard Smith who wears more eyeliner than any woman I know. Bill Hemmer is a piece of work he just want to magnify himself he would shoot himself to get attention (attention deficit disorder ). Jon Scott his family couldn't spell so he was traumatized by their ignorance so he decided to get a degree and forgot to change his name to JOHN he is about as exciting as bumper rust. Brian Kilmead another Attention deficit disorder  champion, then there is  Eric Bolling  a never Trumper he is a democrat in a morons clothing I think he successful at fooling us he's not, just left of pocket book style Yankee liberal who probably voted for New York Mayor  Bill de Blasio.  I see where the Democrats want to take down Trump and they are willing to tank America to do it because any fool knows when the stock market falls it goes right back up so it would make them look like saviors if they manipulate the president into making this Koshogi journalist thing into a pull the Saudi Military arms deal out from under 55,000 American workers  The democrats don't give a hoot in hell about Americans especially if they have a job, they want sniveling crawling beggars at their feet begging for the crumbs Trump gave them back while they hold the whip and send our jobs overseas and make a fat check for doing it.  
    • I pay 2.45 here of course we don't have free health care
