Here! Here! John. I agree with every word.
In our inquiry on lobbying, I came across one lobbyist who boated that his firm had trained Big Pharma to give evidence before a Select Committee. He claimed to have anticipated all the questions.

Another tentacle in addition to all the other tentacles that are pulling on the levers of influence and power.


The activities of the pharmaceuticals is as outrageous as the activities of the bankers over the last few years. Greed is at the root of it all. The huge profits made and the tentacles that reach into the political system are corrupting tot he highest degree. It seems profit is more important than the well being of those they presume to serve and the number of snouts in that particular trough seem to be legion.
We need a huge overhaul of the regulatory system governing the pharma's. Also just as we as individuals took out credit we didn't actually need or could afford to pay back we need to also take responsibility for the pills we pop. Too often we take the the overworked doctors pill pushing as a mirialce cure for our ills when a pill is probably the last thing we need and actually makes our condition worse.
I personnally haven't taken anything not even an aspirin for any of my aches and pains or worries for longer than I can remember. Good wholesome food, exercise and a supportive family/social network is far more affective than these pills that everyone pops without a second thought.
Medication is for those who are serioulsy ill to think that one can pop a pill to cure the natural anxieties of our daily life is absurd. I see in one paper yesterday that there is even a pill to take away your unpleasent memories.But what will it leave you with god only knows
