Does The ROOT of All EVIL really SOLVE PROBLEMS?
9/28/2007 9:41:46 AM
Just now, after reading a beautiful poem posted by CHANTILLY LACE, I was compelled to comment. As the ideas flowed, and the text appeared on the screen, more compassion took over.

I sincerely hope that CHANTI is not offended. Her WISH, so aptly presented, is both PURE of heart, and sincere... but so is my response, offered here.

I usually post my ramblings under ARTICLES, and rarely as BLOGS, but decided to post this here. If anyone thinks it should be also posted under ARTICLES, please let me know... OKAY?

Thanks, Tom.



CHANTI... beautiful concept!

However, I have reached a point in life where skepticism has now prevailed. i.e. I do not believe that pharmaceutical manufacturers really WANT to produce a cure for cancer, or diabetes, or AIDS, or Alzheimers, or any other debilitating illness. WHY?

Because they make more money keeping everyone HOOKED on repetitive medicating. RELIEF! Remember the old commercial: “How do YOU spell RELIEF?” If it eases PAIN, keep taking it FOREVER!

As a so-called "RETIRED" senior citizen, I am forced to work 3 days every week, just to barely make ends meet. Every day I work I deliver prescriptions - meds - drugs - TO OLD SICK POOR PEOPLE WHO CAN'T AFFORD THE DEDUCTIBLES, CO-PAYS, AND UNCOVERED EXPENSES - MEDICARE DOESN'T CARE! INSURANCE COMPANIES DO NOT CARE! BUSH DOES NOT CARE! CONGRESS DOES NOT CARE! THE PUBLIC DOES NOT CARE!

This phenomenon only represents about 78,000,000 MILLION AMERICANS, almost ONE-THIRD of our TOTAL POPULATION… How much BIGGER or WORSE must it get before WE THE PEOPLE FINALLY WAKE UP?

EPIDEMIC PROPORTIONS OF: DIABETES, ESPECIALLY NOW IN CHILDREN - OBESITY, YET EVERY DIET FAD AND PLAN EVER INVENTED BOMBARD THE AIRWAYS - ADDICTION, ALCOHOL, DRUGS, SMOKING - PORNOGRAPHY, ON THE INTERNET, ON BOOKSHELVES, IN EVERY STORE.... ALL GROWING BY LEAPS AND BOUNDS FOR 50 YEARS NOW!

CURE FOR CANCER - WAR ON DRUGS - WAR ON CRIME - SAVE THE CHILDREN - SAVE THE PLANET - SAVE THE WHALES - FIND SALVATION - PTL CLUB - 700 CLUB - BENNY HINN - BILLY GRAHAM - AND MORE, MORE, MORE... ALL WORTHY CAUSES... BUT NONE CURED!

I have watched, prayed, donated, believed... for over 50 years... YET, time and untold MILLIONS of dollars have never ELIMINATED any of these major problems of mankind.

I now do not believe in, nor support ANY ORGANIZED RELIGION! They all say the same thing: give me money so I can continue keeping the SHEEP in the fold."

If people really think that pouring more money into LOST CAUSES is the thing to do, then how about RE-ROUTING THE FLOW OF 300+ BILLIONS OF DOLLARS FROM THE WAR IN IRAQ BACK HERE TO HOME, think that large amount of money could, or would CURE ANYTHING?

One person at a time... ONE on ONE! One Party to the other Party, One State to another State, One Nation to another Nation, One Religion to another Religion, One Region to another Region, One Continent to another Continent, One Planet to ITSELF!

I would be so bold as to suggest that every person go GOOGLE --- THE PRAYER OF ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISI --- "Lord, make me an instrument of your Peace..."

Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.


O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen

"SHOW ME THAT YOU CARE" ---

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE --- that is the only answer!

Pax Tecum! Tom.
