Redacted #resistance

I like this. Nothing like a good redaction to make people worry. Ticktock.

What if inside the abyss #Megatron is there snapping a picture of you? #Transformers #pencildrawing

It's not that far-fetched. Is it?

Many things are possible. The Decepticons are already in control anyway.

Enjoy the weekend.

Medical records often vilify people who've used marijunia to self-medicate #opioidcrisis #drugcompanies #bigpharma

Over the past few days I've read thousands of pages of medical records for some upcoming Social Security disability hearings. Many of the records spell out problems with back pain, mental health issues, and other chronic pain. Suicidal ideations abound. Sexual abuse is rampant. All of it is very unpleasant and sad. It makes you doubt whether people are good.

There is one glaring problem with many of these records. Judgement lingers in the records, the judgment of doctors, physicians assistants, and nurses.  One word almost always follows the parade of horribles: BUT.

And what is after the BUT?

And what are they judgmental about?

The patients smoked marijunia, and, therefore, they are bad people. They do not deserve benefits, etc. Or this is the way the flawed thinking goes. And why is it flawed? Because doctors shove prescription drugs down patients' throats that are far more powerful and addictive than marijunia, which isn't actually addictive. Just look at Oxycontin and the grown opioid crisis. Then they judge people, who haven't had the same advantages as the medical professionals and who aren't offered tons of money to be a high dollar drug pusher.

So much judgment especially when it is directed at minorities or at least that's what I've read.

Oh they hypocrisy.

Tear gas #poetry

outlawed in warfare
still used against child welfare
borders are arbitrary
man made lines that divide
if the monster is inside us
and is us
one of us at least
how can you wall off
yourself
when the inside is
rotten

We are turtles #thedarktower #pencildrawing

Are we turtles with the world on top of us? Or are we the world on top of a turtle?

See It and the Dark Tower series by Stephen King.
