Quotable: Molly Ivins’ famous last (published) words

“We are the people who run this country.

We are the deciders. And every single day,

every single one of us needs to step outside

and take some action to help stop this war.”

Molly Ivins, sorely and sadly missed

    How sad that she died just weeks after what looks like the cure for all known forms of cancer was found.
    I noticed that the MSM has been very silent on this discovery. Seems that the patent for the drug (dichloroacetate) has expired as it was only used as a treatment for a rare metabolic disorder. Now big pharma is in a race to make it legal to re-patent a drug for a new use so they can charge cancer patients big bucks for a cure.
    Isn’t it a sad comment on humanity that profit would come before the cure for cancer?

    Oh, yeah…that was on the news up here just a short time ago. Since my own mom is battling breast cancer, we both found it extremely interesting. I think the solution is to let generics manufacturers manufacture this, minus patent. Or better still, let the government take over….
    Oh, and do away with all patenting as far as drugs goes; profit is the root of all evil, especially where meds are concerned!
