Well truth seekers, the time is nigh at hand. StephenTown Radio will begin its broadcast season Thursdays at 3:30 pm, 92.7 on the dial, or www.trentradio.ca
on the interweb. Now that the show has been confirmed, let us now turn to events of today.
1) The state of California is suing auto manufacturers
for CO2 emissions, which the west-coast liberals claim has damaged the environment and its citizens. Firstly, I don't know how they can put their bongs and surfboards down long enough to tell that their health is suffering, but evidentally CO2-induced coughing is far worse than marijuana-induced smatterings of "you want a hit, bro?". I suppose the suspicion is that CO2 coughing leads to harder compound gasses. Secondly, I am staunchly against this action. As if the auto-companies aren't in enough of a bind right now from foreign competors, California has to be the BIG MAN and kick them when they're down! Real brave, California. Looks like the hippy-dreamland envisioned by Barbara Boxer and Nancy Pelosi where no honest, American company is free to make money in a free-market economy.
2) The Wal-mart pharmeseutical wing of the company will be offering generic versions of brand-name perscription drugs
. This would bring the cost of a given perscription drug (say AdVair, which retails @ approx. $123.00 down to a mere $20.00). I am very for this initiative. Wal-Mart needs to do whatever it can to loosen the stranglehold of small-town pharmacy giants like Shoppers, Arcade Guardian, and I.D.A. In addition, the pharmaseutical industry practically runs the American government (7 pharmeseutical lobbyists per 1 Congressman, 1.6 lobbyists per Senator). But Then again, the pharmeseutical industry has always been the noble company, providing Canadians and Americans with lower blood pressure, and rock-hard 4-hour errections.
So torn....Wal-Mart on one side, Pharmesutical giants on the other! How can these two be fighting? Wolverine shouldn't fight the Hulk! I can only hope that Wal-Mart will begin producing generic drugs THROUGH the pharmeseutical giants.....that way, the free-market competion that got them to this point will finally cease, thereby allowing the two companies to conscientiously administer life-sexifying medicines to the wealthier class. I'm glad I resolved this issue.
So until next thursday, stay tuned to StephenTown Radio LJ, where I will be posting shows as often as I get them.
All your base are belong to us....the truth.
