The Medicine In Politics
By, Nancy Hammond
A thought suddenly occurred to me, what if the medicine in politics is opioids? Our politicians claim that there is a war on drugs, yet so many US citizens must be high. Nevertheless, we are the largest consumer of pharmaceuticals in the world. Mexico’s El Crapo knew this years ago. After a major surgery I was given opioids. I was more than content to watch the home shopping network, on a loop. My thoughts were foggy and I slept with drool on my face. Maybe, just maybe, the republican candidates are counting on the pill popping industry to get them elected. If I sound paranoid, I am. The recent popularity of acting vile and stupid isn’t funny anymore. Who are these people wrangling for, Donald the quack-quack? Are they the viewership of Honey Boo Boo? Damn it, if there is a warning on opioid medication saying “don’t drive”, why not add and please “don’t vote”. Clearly, Sarah Palin is a “popper” who has just endorsed another reality entertainer for president. To me her bombast sounds something like this, cause we’re gonna klan-king yaw for the reds, you betcha. Come again? In the 20th century we would have called this vernacular gibberish. But don’t be mistaken it’s a battle cry in code. What’s up? Let’s deconstruct the code shall we? Possible translation, I am high and the Russian Muslim is leaving the White House. Just “Jeb” (as he likes to be called) has just “outed” his daughter, Noelle, as an addict in order to qualify himself as president. Thanks Dad. Perhaps we need more regulations on the distribution of opioids as well as guns? Otherwise, just lay down your arms and have another Big Gulp.
Our nations critical thinking has relapsed and now ponders on where Marco Rubio bought his new high-heels. Are they designer boots or not? I guess we’ll never know. Ted Cruz was recently accused of trying to be cool in Iowa. He apparently sported a checkered shirt costing five hundred smackers. As many understand, you can’t buy cool. As an example Bernie Sanders is cool and his clothes, not so much. There is plenty of snake oil or “medicine” for whatever ails you. Don’t be a stoner and blankly stare at whatever catches your attention. Snap out of it. They are just new boots and nothing more. Listen instead to the political code language and think. Paranoia is in the race but let it only be a side effect of the medicine in politics.
