God love ya Pat, just keep forkin it over for your med's. And where can I buy locally soft gravel to put in my yard so I can walk on it barefooted??
Continued>>>> Since the cost of prescription drugs is so outrageous, I thought
everyone should know about this. It pays to shop around. This helps to solve the mystery as to why they can afford to put a Walgreen's on every corner.
On Monday night, Steve Wilson, an investigative reporter for Channel 7 News in Detroit, did a story on generic drug price gouging by pharmacies. He found in
his investigation, that some of these generic drugs were marked up as
much as 3,000% or more. Yes, that's not a typo: three thousand
percent! So often, we blame the drug companies for the high cost of
drugs, and usually rightfully so. But in this case, the fault clearly
lies with the pharmacies themselves. For example, if you had to buy a
prescription drug, and bought the name brand, you might pay $100 for
The pharmacist might tell you that if you get the generic equivalent,
they would only cost $80, making you think you are 'saving' $20. What
the pharmacist is not telling you is that those 100 generic pills may
have only cost him $10! You do not have to be a paid member of COSTCO to use their pharmacy. Just tell them at the front door you wish to use the pharmacy only.
WOW… AN EYE OPENER

Let's hear it for Costco!! (This is just mind-boggling!) Make sure you
read all the way past the list of the drugs. The woman that signed

Did you ever wonder how much it costs a drug company for the active
ingredient in prescription medications? Some people think it must cost
a lot, since many drugs sell for more than $2.00 per tablet. We did a
search of offshore chemical synthesizers that supply the active
ingredients found in drugs approved by the FDA. A significant percentage of drugs sold in the United States contain active ingredients made in other
countries. In media independent investigation of how much profit drug
companies really make, we obtained the actual price of active
ingredients used in some of the most popular drugs sold in America .

My best guess. The commercial beef, pork, turkey and chicken producers have developed modern methods of raising, feeding, slaughtering, and transporting their products for human consumption. These methods of animal mass production and processing are not pretty, but they are efficient for the huge numbers of animals needed to feed a willing domestic and foreign consumer market. Groups such as P.E.T.A and some Vegan organizations have radial agendas to stop such methods. They trespass, vandalize, sneak video the process on private property with the intent to gain media publicity. They also generate harassment lawsuits against the producers. For some, it's some stated esoteric goal under the auspice of cruelty to domesticated food animals. For others, it's a harassment method to support a radical vegan movement and extreme environmentalist.
They get elected because they are not trying to redefine the Constitution and expand Governmental control over all aspects of one's life. You know, like the Demigod's in DC and the White House. Better get used to it, the pendulum is swinging back after 8 years of incompetence, lack of transparency, socialist ideology agendas, corruption, and confiscatory taxes of the producers so as to give it to the I want to be taken care of losers.
To all the above points, problems, and reasons for them. My opinion.
Current Government public education indoctrination of children with social agendas, political ideology and long term goals to change America.
If it feels good, do it, you have no responsibility or accountability for it. Your a victim of something else.
If we truly have freedom of religion or freedom to not believe in one, why can't I walk into an LDS Temple during a service as an example? (Nothing against the Mormon faith or beliefs) Or, Scientology centers that claim to be a religion and receive the same tax claim benefits. Just want to know.
This last minute push is because they have not achieved 3 goals as they promised they would by March 31, 2014.
The administration will soon have to reveal that they have not reached their stated goal of 6 Million "PAID" sign up's for Obama care.
The majority of current signup's are people already on MEDCAID, and have not paid.
Not enough healthy young people have signed up to financially support the Obama care Ponzi scheme.
This is a common thread post I copied off a current topic shooters web site, FYI>
I am qualified to inform you about how "ammo gangs" work. When the shipment first comes in a Walmart employee calls their friends. A lot of employees will even hide such merchandise so another customer wont see it while his buddy is en route. It pays off BIG for everyone involved because a $17.00 box of .22 shells can easily sell for as much as $250.00 online. Walmart isn't the only place where this occurs. Any employee working in a store (with a few business partners) that sells ammo can easily make a middleclass income selling ammo online. Many predict that this will continue for as long as people are willing to cheat and others to pay the price gouge going on. It doesn't cost squat to buy every available box that comes in, that's what creates the phony shortage.
Local Gun store owners are taking advantage too. When their .22LR ammo arrives they put it up for sale online, it never touches their shelves. You never will see it.
Duber has always been seduced by the dark side. (Globe politics) Time to retire, collect crystals, chant before bedtime, and drink large quantities of Ensure.
Maybe Judge Duber had another epiphany! Or was it Cahill?
