Dr Ritter, who himself suffers from arthritis (physician heal thyself, I crowed at him) says his patients suffer agonies and actually need these damned pills but he can no longer prescribe them. The ironies pile up because our Governor, who in private life led a medical insurance company fined 1.7 billion dollars for Medicare fraud (no, really!), at first wanted to stop investigation of the so called pill mills...and now has signed off on a law that is as usual draconian and misdirected. Pill mills get all the business. Weird but true and if you are in agony tough titties.
I think we've lost the national plot, so the Lord might as well be with us for all the good that's going to do, after all mixing religion and politics was what the Founders intended wasn't it? No longer are laws made by a mixture of debate and common sense and more debate. Now it's blatant, whoever pays the most gets the law they prefer and the Devil take the hindmost. A letter writer in the paper today grouped together the Wall Street Occupiers, the President of Iran, American Nazis, the Democrat Party and the Black Man in the White Man's House, and blamed our economic collapse on the Democrats in Power (whoever they are). That sort of debating style, they are Evil we are God's Chosen, will lead to Civil War. Do we want that? Without oxycodone to keep us stoned civil war could really hurt.
