Is Meat Addictive?

Bill knocked this one out of the ballpark! Is meat addictive or are you just addicted to doing what you are told? Apparently, it is just too exhausting to think for oneself.

The Tobacco Institute assured many generations that smoking brought many positively wonderful benefits to many millions of people around the world. They blew billows of smoke clouds to win addicts to their sacrosanct product by documenting what a smoker liked to hear, to hear about research on low “tar” tobaccos, microfiber filtration, dust-free packages, outstandingly mild puffs — all smoke screens to direct attention away from the addictive nature of nicotine.

Within a statistical error range of 3%, you can find as many climate-change deniers among scientists as there are round-earth deniers.

Advertising suggested that most doctors chose Camel cigarettes. The brand that helps them keep alert to their patients’ concerns — a demanding practice according to Tobacco Institute polls. Doctors don’t smoke many Camels these days, but Big Pharma does not reward many physicians for prescribing vegan diets to their patients, do they?

    • Leslie, I think that I am the “only adult in the room” here in Amerikkka because I am not for the legalization of weed or cannabis or whatever it is called. All I know is that the shit smells worse than a skunk and some of it does indeed smell like a skunk. Also, there is a major health threat to the lungs of infants and children when weed is smoked around them and since millions of babies and children reside in apartments, what is smoked in one apartment does not just remain in that particular apartment, but travels throughout the building and then people have the nerve to wonder why so many children have severe upper respiratory problems or who later in life develop severe lung problems. I don’t wonder. Smokers of cigarettes and weed and whatever else they can blow up their damn nose don’t care about the impact their choice has on others. I get so pissed off over people always lauding the legalization of shit that should not be legalized because it only encourages bad behavior, although in reality, that ship has sailed since I cannot pass by someone who does not smell like weed. And those of us who don’t smoke are just expected to grin and bear it. Well, I’ll probably get shot because I continue to call ‘people’ out on that shit and I will continue.

      Leslie, I thank you for your comment.

      • Exactly! And here in Amerikkka, all of a sudden republicans are backing the legalization of this mess because big pharma is joining the fray and so it is really not going to be just a plant anymore. It is going to be something else that sickens people because that’s big pharma’s main goal.

        Thanks Lelsie.

      • Miss Shelby I’m not certain you’ve gotten my previous message since it is not showing up. But basically I was stating cannabis is not that bad as long as you don’t over indulge in it and also that CDC article about cannabis causing lung issues in children was for cannabis mixed with other drugs my grandfather smoked cannabis even when it was illegal, and I have upper respiratory issues and I have never had any problems with the smoke from cannabis unlike I do with tobacco. Also my aunt used cannabis oil to cure her crohns disease, and eat cannabis edibles to treat my sever chronic pain disorder, so you may want it to be illegal, but for people like me and my aunt it’s a much cheaper alternative than a major operation where you’ll be on expensive medications for the rest of your life, then I’d rather stick to not drastically changing my life when there is a better and safer alternative out there. Also cannabis has also helped my grandfather whom I am very close to, who has Alzheimer’s not forget to eat and live somewhat normally, almost like he used to. So pardon me if my comment sounds rude, but until you’re in the situation my aunt was in or my situation with my chronic pain disorder, then you’d understand where I’m coming from.

    • Hi Leslie! The revolving doors between billionaires in government and billionaires in private industry spins ever faster and ever more brazenly. The regulators of cannabis and the corporate cannabis industry grease each other’s palms, and only billionaires (and the occasional trillionaire) may play the game. The MO reminds me of the final lines in George Orwell’s *Animal Farm* (1945):
      “No question now what has happened to the faces of the pigs. The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again: but already it was impossible to say which was which.” (metaphorical pigs and men by the way).
      I don’t like to use the expression “Orwellian” because Orwell was the messenger, not the Big Brother.
      Big Brothers of Big Tobacco, Big Pharma, Privatized Prison-Industrial Complexes… just met in Davos, Switzerland to assure each other that it stays that way: In ad infinitum and ad nauseam we trust.

      • Monday, January 21st,2019 The Globe and Mail Report on Business : “Under assault by populists, global elites regroup in Davos” . My favourite quote “Judging by the state of the world right now, 10 years on from the financial crisis, and the dysfunctional state of global politics I would suggest that these annual events have achieved the sum total of diddly squat,” said Michael Hewson, chief market analyst at CMC Markets UK. I couldn’t put it better myself.

      • Thanks for the quote, Leslie. I quite agree with Michael Hewson on “the sum total of diddly squat,” Davos: D(iddly)avoS(quat), being a dysfunctional *state* of global politics that begins with diddly and ends with squat.
        “global elites regroup in Davos”:
        *regroup* — sit on different chairs in 2019 🙂

    • HLJ, I’m about to attempt to get ALL up in YOUR business. You say that you have an addiction to meat and that since you have an addiction to meat, anything and everything else you partake of is just because you have a predilection for addiction. I propose that we ALL take up a collection or better yet, GoFundHLJ so that he can get him some rehab to see if he can get up off his predilection for addiction all up in here!

      And y by the way, my former groom-to-be, who stood me up at the alter, eons ago, I am still for having words with you about that and now to find that I missed wedded ‘blitz’ by just a hare’s breath since I’ve only just found out about your addiction issue. Oh what a sigh of relief, I heave to know that I missed out on sharing my, already turbulent life, with someone who would have only added more chaos. Am I ever the lucky one.

      Just messing with ya HLJ! Good to see ya. And I really did miss you! Don’t be a stranger!

  1. Hi Shelby! Thank you so much for the reblog, particularly since this is a site that *always* piques my interest. I seem only to write on topics that do not draw reality TV denizen-dwellers who live their lives vicariously and think that they are thinking independently, but am also very proud of that because I fear the tyranny of the majority that fears the “other” who only wants equal protection under the law. Extending that protection to include inalienable rights for *all* sentient creatures places me within a minority viewpoint *within* a minority viewpoint. The road less traveled is the one that I stomp and pave 🙂
