I may have worded that post wrong. These are just examples of the results of the op.privatization or extended gov. For lack of a better term. And I do fully agree with the FDA needing to be abolished or at least fixed, but that is another example itself. Like the utilitiy reg board it is the result of our tax money at work. An example of a failed or at least vastly flawed system, I had hoped the post would steer the conversation back to the topic, it was going more towards this idea is dumb cause most people think so so I do too. But this is a topic I am very interested in. And the debate helps me form opinions or clarifies parts of it. There are many pluses and minuses to both ideas, some I listed. Oh and trump yes you are correct the party affiliation is my main response to the folks here in Texas. They still think he is not a politician , but he fits the mold. Really that was just an example or talking point to give backing to what I said, I know a lot of folks on here like to go by facts with links or polls but I tend to go only with what I’ve observed. One thing I can’t agree with is pharm being harmless. Or misunderstood. It’s pretty evident they have been lobbying and giving payouts on tort cases for a long while. Probly one reason cost of drugs is so high. And it’s not hard to follow the trail from them to insurance comp. that create hmo’s and provide malpractice insurance to doctors snd hospitals who in turn take money from big pharm for equipment and new wings or whatever and in turn push new medication to get the increase profit before the patent is void. I mean why else would they need commercials on tv listing symptoms and asking us to ask your doctor about such and such as if he somehow was unaware of a new drug. I mean it’s a lot of speculation I’ll say that but it falls into the power, greed , elitist paradigm and from experience if you step in something soft and moist or hard and dry in a pasture and it ain’t grass it’s usually bullshit.Hi there,
I am a bit tired and can't cover everything you mentioned but than you for the great reply!
I am not sure what caste system you are talking about but there are as many lobbyists, lobbying for liberal interests as there are for conservative. Donald Trump's biggest selling point was not the wall but that he is not a politician cannot be owned by anyone.
A lot of people believe the myth that big pharma is evil. The FDA is a real problem and needs to be abolished. Their original service was to ensure the safety of a product and not its efficacy. They do not approve of life-saving drugs that can save thousands or millions of lives because they know that they won't get in trouble for withholding a drug from being released. They do not so much do their own independent testing but rely on what the pharmaceutical companies themselves turn in to them. Remember, their job is supposed to only making sure that a product is safe and not its efficacy. this is why hundreds of thousands of Americans go to Mexico and other countries to buy life-saving medication and treatments.
Who stands to lose the most when Big Pharma fucks up? Big Pharma! People can and have put together class action lawsuits that have sued for billions and have put many pharmaceutical companies out of business. Big Pharma is VERY strict on testing its product before releasing it to the market but the FDA is the one that is stopping them and stopping lives from being saved.
Regulations licensing and certification do not guarantee or increase quality or safety. There are plenty of licensed teachers that molest or have sexual relations with their students.
When I get on a plane I have no idea who the pilot is or his qualification but I still feel very safe since it is the pilot who has the most to lose if something happens. Besides losing his job (if he and we survive) he is also a son, husband, and father, etc., and the last thing he wants to die or kill anyone or lose his job. However, if he is nuts and wants to crash the plane then all the certifications and licensing in the world won't make a difference.
