What in sam hill does gun control and cancers have in common that they could make a topic? For the regular person there would be none, but for survivors like me it becomes easily obvious.
I have survived prostate cancer and it was no walk in the park I tell you. I shouldn’t have prostate cancer, the disease that took me off the stage for a while, but I did.
One would say mister; diseases are no respecter of persons so how come you are saying you shouldn’t have had it. Well it is like this you see, and I beg no apologies for saying this: CANCERS LIKE MOST DISEASES IS PREVENTABLE OR CURABLE.
However, the will of the infrastructure in which we live and operate, focuses on the disease management side instead of disease prevention. CNN just underscored this in one resounding way indeed! If you missed it you can see my previous blog.
At this point I must mention a soldier in that documentary whose medications/pills filled a supermarket plastic bag. He is a living and painful example of a society that has a pill if your head scratch you and one if a black cat crosses your path. You couldn’t even say this system is frivolous but for all and sundry it is one heck of a joke indeed. If they could get you to be superstitious they would have one for the “boogie man” too.
A young man indeed, in the CNN documentary who got screwed by taking pills for this and that, and who could have been stocked on the junkie pile hadn’t he had the fortitude to do something about it. Fortunately for him he survived and he too can hoist the survivor banner like some of us.
The system has no will to do anything about this “kill them while we get rich” mentality, nor do they have any desire to change. The CNN piece, though so gut wrenching and eye-opening will soon be forgotten and will be like it never happen.
All the doctors pleadings and experts advice, the best for a better society and an healthier one at that, will soon fall back to earth like a deflated balloon, and that is if it has even taken off. No one of repute had come out and laud CNN for this venture, nor any relevant departments. In fact if you are not a news junkie like me you probably have not even heard of this documentary. The documentary has as lead words ESCAPE FIRE! Fitting for certain of the dreadful things to come where your health is concerned.
Here is the diabolical situation of which we face: In this coroner we the hapless people, in that corner the mighty giant of the pharmaceutical industry, hospitals, insurance companies and specialists. They will continue to suck the blood of the hapless and uninformed people until God comes.
If you don’t believe me take a look at gun control. Wouldn’t we rather massacre kids and helpless people than to ban assault weapons? Recently the President argued the point that we forget, and plead to the powers that be to do something about this. Will something be done about this like even abandoning these high capacity magazine clips, such as the ones used to kill young kids and their teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary? I say again irrevocably that nothing will be done.
Here is the picture again in gladiatory terms: in this corner hapless people without power. In that corner the NRA and selfish politicians who must be reelected. This fight will not go the distance rounds and my money is not on “this corner”!
In that corner there are indeed people with no natural affection, men who are lovers of themselves, lovers of money, self assuming, haughty, not open to any agreement, without love of goodness, fierce, betrayers, headstrong, puffed up with pride and lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God. So how on earth must hapless uninformed people win against that formidable foe?
These are critical times hard to deal with. Too bad many more will have to suffer and many more will have to die. It is not according to man who is walking even to direct his step much less to find solutions for situations that are bigger than them. Until earth’s rightful ruler comes, we shall be inundated with plagues and more plagues, as we continue without let up to plague one another.
For people like us we though will survive as we are indeed the survivors. So there you have it the correlation between gun control and cancers. Two modern scourges that we are too cold hearted to do anything about.
