Adios, Sib.  Strike up the drums, with Brad on the vocals.

"Hashian played on Boston's first two hit records, their self-titled debut album in 1976, featuring the hit song "More Than a Feeling," and the 1978 followup, "Don't Look Back." The original band, made up of Tom Scholz, Brad Delp, Barry Goudreau, Fran Sheehan and Hashian, had one of the most successful debut records in history, selling over 17 million copies, with the singles "Long Time" and "Peace of Mind.""

I think that's most musicians ideal exit. What are they supposed to go peacefully in their sleep?! Fuck that shit! Play until you drop, bitches!  8)

How is this shocking or unexpected?  My phone call to my mechanic earlier today probably ended up in the NSA's database.  We live in a society where we have allowed the intelligence agencies free reign, and we are supposed to be surprised that they collected info on Donald Trump?

Exactly! No big deal. Now, bend over. We need a sample.  ;)

I am ready and willing to accept American freedom.

Alright but the rub is it isn't free. The whole thing is a giant diaper scam and mv is the president of the real deep state. You should really know what you're getting into here.  ;) 8)

I got a few ideas. To solve both the companies' issues about cost of development of new drugs and profit margins and complaints from patients who need the drugs.
1) Let the bidding for Medicare pricing be open so that the rest of the market (competitors, insurance companies, generic drug mfgs, other countries' markets, and end-users/patients can see it.)

2) Make it illegal to directly market to end-users prescription drugs (or any drug maybe*) and marketing only by post to doctors.# That would cut most the "marketing" costs for those companies, which instead could be used to reinvestment in new drugs or returned as dividends to shareholders. No more TV ads demanding you ask your doctor about a drug for a problem you likely don't have.

3) Pass some law indemnifying, or placing some caps on damages, or some such scheme for the companies who release a patented new medicine to other companies for generic mfg against any lawsuits etc. That eliminates much of the companies' REM "concern."  This could be some kind of risk pool between the mfg's or a law like we do with certain vaccines.

4) they/he should redact the personal information on the documents presented. At least black out addresses and/or personal information but show the pricing differentials etc. What is it our government doesn't "get" about securing personal information?

5) Require that all doctors, hospitals, and pharmacists ask "patient," when possible, if you want the generic drugs.

6) Better oversight and testing for all drugs, especially those made overseas, and especially for cheap generic made by foreign companies. Even after their efficacy is known. I don't want "fake drugs," or worse, coming in as generic drugs that could harm patients.

*1) 1st Amendment you say? Ok, instead of passing a law against pass a law giving treble damages (or more)above any judgement, or settlement, for any successful lawsuit against a drug that was marketed directly to the end-user in television, internet, radio, mail, or print.

#2) Ok, some former University of Kentucky cheerleaders and saleswomen will have to find a new job. Too bad, but, luckily for them looking good and being a good salesperson can almost always find you a job. Maybe not as lucrative but there is always places for good salespeople. But that is how my doctor gets me "free samples" you say? True but those "free samples" are coming at a larger cost to the system. Plus I would allow actual scientific conferences on new drugs (but not just golf and fishing trip to learn about the new pill) and sample to be sent with literature but to doctors only. And advertising, of a scientific/medical nature, in the trade publications.

Oh I'm hooked too, I just can't ever seem to keep straight what time/channel tv broadcasts are on and always end up out-of-sync.  Happened with Walking Dead, Last Ship, so many others. 

Btw, one thing I love about the Expanse is how it envisions the future political/economic/social order of a colonized solar system.  I'm reminded of Heinlein's Moon is a Harsh Mistress by this, which is apropos of tonite's discussion on lunar political science.

Yeah, that's one of the best aspects of the show. That and how us Earthlings change as we go to live and work in different places in our solar system. What are you watching through? Cable? Netflix?

That's right.  Which is why they need rights before they exist, just so's there's no confusion.  :) As for Expanse I can't ever follow series in real time anymore - so I'm waiting to binge watch Season 2 off netflix down the road.

Not me. I'm hooked, man. I wait on every new episode.  ;)

Supposed to be an accident: the BBC was showing the wrong footage and she was telling them to cut the vid. Not sure who she is, if she is a Muzzie, or her background, but clearly in poor taste.

It would not be the first time however that a Muslim makes the "throat slitting gesture" and the press tells us it was a mistake they were making a "cut off filming" gesture.

This show is new to me. I never heard of the show when I was growing up.  I had no clue that Jack Webb would have had the slightest interest in UFO's.  He always came across to me as someone who would think UFO's and other paranormal phenomena were poppycock.  Glad to know he was more broadminded.  Still it is funny that Joe Friday did a show on UFO's.

SV lives near London, how do you know he hasn't friends or relations involved? The world is fucked up, but poking fun at the tragedy that included a police officer being worked on by an MP but sadly died, says far more about you fucked up assholes than it does the UK.

It's how most human beings cope with this shit that you willfully imported into your country, you silly man!  I understand you not being able to relate to that though. ::)

And tomorrow we'll make light of the 3000 killed on 11th september 2001. Four people were killed. Many more seriously injured, including kids, by some scumbag cunt. And all the usual dumbass mouth breathers can come up with is 'yer need gurns'. Such a  shame your mothers weren't sterile. Still, there's the chance you can't breed. But sadly not all.

Bawhahahahahahahahahaha!!!!! ;D

Time to get yer mind right, son! It's clearly all fucked up.  ::) :D

You make some good arguments, and after due consideration, I think that even electric and autopilot cars should be banned.

They could easily be hacked and then used against a peace loving Muslim. Definitely BANNED!  ;)

Doesn't "phobia" necessitate by definition an "irrational fear?" I would, especially if I was a female, when a religion/culture has "games" like "Taharrush" (Islamic gang rape and harassment "game,") and encourages followers to kill infidels/kaffirs by any means necessary whereever they find them, not consider the fear if you see them walking down your street or invading your neighborhood and country "irrational."

Today NATO "ally" threatens Europe:
""If you continue to behave like this, tomorrow in no part of the world, no European, no Westerner will be able to take steps on the street safely and peacefully," Erdogan said during a speech in Ankara."
The other day he threatened to send 15,000 invaders a day to Europe
Some "ally."

Yeah, fuck that guy! I've never liked him.  >:(

Pesky pedestrians probably had internalized Islamophobia too.

Yeah, it's like if they weren't so full of institutionalized Islamophobia and hate that guy never would of went off. It's clearly the fault of the British people for not being welcoming and accommodating enough, the selfish bastards!  ::)
