    But never use eastern red cedars (Juniperus virginiana) if you have apple trees (or crabapples, quince or hawthorns) around, because it will cause your trees to develop cedar-apple rust every single summer. It looks ugly (orange spots) and then makes the leaves fall off. They're not true cedars, they're junipers, so you wouldn't want to use junipers. Thujas would be okay. eastern red cedar https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juniperus_virginiana cedar-apple rust https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gymnosporangium_juniperi-virginianae

    Rand is still fighting to get them to repeal. Pretty strong statement. I believe Rand only posted this about a 1/2 hour ago and Trump just tweeted that they should repeal - did they coordinate this? I also hear that Mike Lee and Jerry Moran have come out against the senate bill. Trump just tweeted:

    Come on, I've been a member of Ron Paul forums since 2008 and your talking to me like I just fell off a turnip truck. What in the world gave you the impression that I didn't already know that the government does corrupt things like that, and that marijuana is perfectly safe? (and your grandmother is not better looking than me! :mad:) You're lucky everyone in your family is healthy but it's probably due more to your genes, than anything else - just the luck of the draw. Some of us are born predisposed to certain diseases and there aren't always steps one can take which will alter that course. Guys, I've read all the classic herbals, newer herbals, a couple recent books on herbal medicines, a bunch of old "materia medica"/Formulary/Dispensatory type books from the late 1800's/early 1900s, and looked into essential oils. I like the idea of natural medicines, but nothing in these books treats the kind of pain I'm thinking about. When the pain is due to irreparable damage - when the disks in your spine finally flatten completely and dry up, and your vertabrae start growing osteophytes which choke your spinal cord and the nerves that branch off of it to other parts of your body - only an opiate helps. I'll settle for having only 1 or 2 (maybe 3?:o) good days out of the week if it keeps me from getting addicted.

    I agree there is rampant corruption in the pharmeceutical industry, but to blame this on legally prescribed pain meds is barking up the wrong tree. The corruption occurs because our government colludes with the industry and keeps legal those practices that allow them to ramp up prices way beyond anything realistic. Opioid pain-relievers are NOT one of the drugs driving their profits - opioids are cheap! But our own government has set up a system that favors one corporation over another, and allows the most politically connected one to monopolize a product by disallowing competing products. Consider the epi-pen - epinephrine autoinjector. Without it, a severe allergic reaction means death for some people. It costs around 8 bucks to produce a 2-pak, but "Since Mylan bought the EpiPen in 2007, the device’s wholesale price has soared from $100 to more than $600 for a now-standard two-pack." http://www.mercurynews.com/2016/10/01/epipen-outrage-silicon-valley-engineers-figure-true-cost-to-make-lifesaving-auto-injector-about-10 There are competing products, but Mylan can charge whatever they want because the FDA protects them by disallowing the competition's products. This makes perfect sense to me! It stands to reason, that when you have a 2nd choice for relief, you are going to try it, maybe stick with it, or use it intermittently. This would have the effect of reducing the overall number of people using the 1st choice. The key word is "choice". I'm entitled to choose what works best for me. My choice should not be made by some bureaucrat who has never used either drug and is therefore clueless about their effectiveness, or ineffectiveness. Still, it's notable that the statistics you are citing fail to acknowlege the huge amount of illegally obtained pain meds used. This includes real vicodin/percocet/etc and counterfeits - all purchased on the black market from cartel people, gangs, crooked doctors. Legitimate doctors play no role in this! By the way, the CDC is just another offshoot of our massive government, not an independent source. Marijuana also appears to help opioid addicts quit and stay off of opioids - which also makes sense to me. Again, it's a matter of having a choice. I'll take it a step further and assert that if marijuana had been legal, we wouldn't even see an increase in opioid use. Most people would stick with harmless, easily obtained, legal marijuana - but no one in the government wants to believe that because it would place the blame on them.

    Now, this is what using common sense looks like. ^ A few of us on this thread, have had first hand experience with these drugs and/or pain, so can claim to know know what we're talking about. Others here, have NO EXPERIENCE WITH DRUGS or chronic pain. You are simply reading government propaganda and spreading it. This is not helpful to anyone. The info our government is publicizing about an "opioid epidemic" is contrived and written to mislead. They're creating a false impression to achieve their own outcomes. They want you to place all the blame on doctors. "The doctor is your enemy" "Doctors must be controlled" "We will save you from these selfish doctors." Well, from my real world experience, and the experiences of persons around me, this is not the way it is! Also, I'm old enough to remember earler "drug crisis" that used similar tactics. They tell you who the monster is, then throw your money around to save you from it.

    'ISRAELITES' LOVED this song since I first heard it as a little kid. Never knew who it was, couldn’t understand the words, had no idea what he was singing about. Now, I can find the lyrics online. Have also learned that he wrote the song after overhearing a couple in the park arguing over money. Finally, it makes sense... and I can sing along. :) Basic lyrics: Get up in the morning, slaving for bread, sir So that every mouth can be fed

    Rand Paul coming up on Your World with Neil Cavuto. FoxNews channel edit: (on the phone) says he's fighting for what he promised, still wants to split it into 2 separate bills. Says promise of repealing taxes at a later date is a false promise. They tell him they like his idea but now is not the time, and he should wait till he's "older and wiser" (10 or 15 years). Rand says, "If they don't have the guts to repeal Obamacare taxes now, they'll never have the guts."

    The fact that opioids are addictive is nothing new. It was well-known before the end of the 19th century because civil war veterans were given morphine for injuries. Same thing after WWI. It's never been a secret and there's no excuse for anyone to feign ignorance over it - and no need to keep preaching about it, either. This whole "opioid epidemic" is nothing but a reworking of the drug war. The increase in overdoses isn't due to legally prescribed painkillers, it's due to the fentanyl which comes across the border and is then sold to unsuspecting drug users as heroin. Fentanyl is cheap to produce, so provides the largest profit with the least amount of effort. It only makes sense, that illegal drug providers prefer to sell fentanyl over real heroin, coke, or marijuana - all of which need to be farmed first and then processed. If Sessions found less than 120 crooked doctors who were actually prescribing painkillers for profit (and look at the wording - "120 people involved in illegally prescribing and distributing" How many were actually Drs. prescribing? How many distributing? Why is the language always so ambiguous?) it sounds more like proof that only a tiny percentage of doctors are actually over-prescribing for profit. In my own experience, it's very difficult to get painkillers and it's getting more and more difficult all the time - and I see a pain management guy! One thing though, it has a lot to do with your own state's laws. Chris "opioid czar" Christie :rolleyes: is my governor, so you can only imagine the hoops they put you AND your doctor(!) through, in order to fill a simple prescription for pain meds. No one wants to prescribe them any more - "too much liability", my pain management doctor told me. On the other hand, I have a friend in Florida who is a nurse and works in a hospital. After she realized a family member of hers had become extremely addicted to pain pills, she was shocked to learn of the quantity of pills this person was able to obtain by prescription from an assortment of doctors. Very different from my state, where your name goes into a database somewhere, and the doctor can look online and find out if you've been getting pain killers prescribed by other doctors, and when, and in what quantities. :mad:

    The last time NJ government shut down (2006?), they resolved the issue by raising the sales tax - and they did it while keeping the public totally oblivious about it. Most people knew nothing about it till well after the fact. How'd they do it? The media focused ALL coverage on the shutting down of NJ's beaches and Atlantic City casinos - which of course, brings in a ton of money for the state. In the "news", there was wide spread hysteria and outrage over the shut down and everyone was talking about it. Only if you deliberately did extra research, would you have noticed a few rare and brief mentions of the suggestion about raising the sales tax to fix the budget - but neither the TV news or the newspapers ever uttered a word about it. I had managed to dig up this fact, but the information was so cryptically stated, that I thought i might be misunderstanding - but in the end, yep, they raised the sales tax while keeping the public totally ignorant of the plan. The day after, most New Jerseyans had no idea their sales tax had been raised. Anyone else remember this? (wikipedia)

    Well thanks. In that case I owe you :eek::eek::eek::eek: . Seriously though, this guy had been caught doing many bizzare things - but somehow he was treated like "Hey, no red flags there!". Another article said there was a complaint from a couple women who claimed he tried to look up their skirts, too. PLUS the doctor he killed, was just filling in for the doctor he actually wanted to kill! What a sad mess. Here's the email he sent to the newspaper before the shooting: He didn't mention that he was about to kill anyone, but does mention that some "chairman" was responsible for hiring him. Sounds like others at the hospital could see that the guy had problems right off the bat. Wonder if we will ever learn that chairman's name?) -----

    Guy was nuts, but... diversity. Bello had gone to med school on the island of Dominica in the Carribean. He wasn’t licensed to practice medicine in NY but was part of an "Organized Health Care Education/Training Program" and had been given a permit to work at the hospital while supervised by a licensed physician. (Sounds Obamacarish) July 1st is the anniversary of his permit's expiration. :eek:!
