Thanks for checking out my blog/random thoughts. I post random thoughts
book excerpts, cultural observations, etc. all form the
A little while ago. I posted the following thoughts to facebook.
How sick are we as a country, (not metaphorically but actually sick) that we need a drug advertisement EVERY commercial break. Wait... maybe it isn't about your actual health... then what is about then?
I was so happy to see other people who jumped in to respond to the comments. Often times I get afraid that we become so used to things that we don't stop to question them. The idea that every commercial break during this show I was watching had a drug commercial troubled me. I mean really are we so sick as a country that they believe that every break someone needs to hear about this new drug that can help (or hurt them in my opinion). I can't believe we are, so then what would be the other motive.
And who approves any drug where the side effects are suicidal ideation.... WHAT!! Now that's crazy.
