A big "bravo!" to Knapp for having the guts and drive to take on this topic and present The Other Side.

http://www.lasvegasnow.com/news/ourpain-the-other-side-of-opioids/852432872

It's also his subject for this Sunday's show.

DATE
Sunday - November 26, 2017
HOST
George Knapp
GUESTS
Dr. Lynn Webster,    Josh Bloom,    Stephen Ziegler,    Richard Lawhern
Millions of Americans who rely on opioid medications for pain relief are in anguish because of government pressure to reduce prescriptions across the board. Doctors, pharmacists, and other providers have already made drastic cuts in the amount of pain medicine they dispense, with more cuts on the way. These actions are in response to media reports about an opioid "crisis." Imagine diabetics being told they can no longer be prescribed insulin, or cancer patients being told that chemotherapy is no longer an option. George Knapp recently produced a multi-part investigative series for KLAS in Las Vegas on opioids and the people who truly need them. George will explore pain relief, big pharma, and government intrusion, with multiple physicians and professionals including Dr. Lynn Webster, Josh Bloom, Stephen Ziegler (related study), and Richard Lawhern.

But before he could get seconds, his feast was raided.  "There was nothing left!" he said.  Gonna need a second kitchen or a smaller table!  Pot luck?

Boy, that beautiful new website really SUCKS! Slow, starts at the "dashboard" , takes forever to get to episodes, no archives, Ark midnight shows all have the same title, and no word if and when there will be another episode. Fortunately, I have plenty of FREE shows to listen to. I'm done with this shit. Life is too short,  enjoy your "ministry" John.

Gee, you got all that from a video title?! Someone wants to be the new pud.  :D

How many of his videos do you think I need to watch before I have a pretty good idea of what he has to say?  The title of the video is wrong, and I've heard many arguments by people who either don't know what they're talking about, or have a Big Government agenda, start out the same way.

I didn't watch this, because the guy rarely has anything useful to add.  He's just another left-wing hack who thinks the Democrat Party isn't socializing the country fast enough.  I realize you are a one issue voter - whether or not the candidate panders to unions - but hopefully some day you'll come to realize the people who set policy for the left have no interest in unions, or most ot their other ''causes'', other than for the votes.

(How have independent trade unions historically done in socialist dictatorships and communist countries?  Answer:  they aren't allowed.  So much for unions somehow being a ''left wing'' cause)

As for businesses, tax cuts, and the use of capital, this is a very easy equasion to understand - although like most things it's impossible to understand by those who don't want to understand it.  It takes money to expand business:  to build warehouses, manufacturing facilities, etc, to buy equipment, to hire more people.  More money - from profits, investment, loans, or lower taxes - gives businesses more capital to do so.  See?  Easy.

The anti-business, anti-capitalist, socialists and supporters of Big Government are more than happy to point out this isn't always the case, that more profits, more funds returned from overseas, lower taxes, etc, don't always automatically lead to more domestic investment and jobs.  And they can find anecdotal evidence and use manipulated statistics to show it.  Well, no shit.  There are multiple factors in effect.  Related to the economic envoronment, competition, opportunity cost, return on capital invested, and so on.  What the economy is doing, and whether current expansion makes business sense. 

But one thing is sure, without those funds, the moeny won't be invested when the business would otherwise do so.


Even if none of that is ever true, so what?  The funds belong to the people who earned them.  The company.  How did we get to the point where somehow everything actually belongs to government, and we should be happy with the pittance they allow us to keep?  How did we get to the point that we believe government can spend money more productively than the private sector?  I'd really like to know
