Presenting... THE ASSHOLE FILES!!

PFIZER - Pharmaceutical Assholes

    Pfizer, while growing wildly rich on Viagra sales, has also managed to flood my inbox with SPAM. No, the spam does not come directly from Pfizer, but I blame Pfizer because they sell this stuff to just about anyone, including convicted sex offenders.  They also managed to get this stuff classified as a "medical necessity". What does this mean to me? It means that MY TAX DOLLARS are feeding VIAGRA to CHILD MOLESTORS on Welfare...   ain't that a Liberal's paradise?

    Would it be difficult for Pfizer to put a stop to recreational use of Viagra? How about stopping unregulated internet sales of Viagra?  Would Pfizer ever try to stop any of this? ...HELL NO! They will do nothing to harm the bottom line, and thus the lewd headers in our inboxes promising erections for all, and (worst of all) our tax dollars funding (among other things) prison sex (yup, available to prisoners, too!)

    Aside from the spam, we the public must also suffer through insipid Pfizer TV commercials for Celebrex, Detrol LA, Lipitor, Xanax, Zoloft, and Zyrtec. I have no idea what ANY of these actually do. From the commercials, one could assume that these drugs make folks run through scenic fields and woodlands. Why anyone would want to be in the outdoors when suffering from diarrhea, cramps, abdominal pain, drowsiness, blurred vision and all the other crazy side-effects these drugs produce is beyond me.

PATIENT: "Gosh, Doc, I'm depressed..."  DOC: "Well, I'll prescribe something that will give you pains, rashes, drowsiness, and uncontrollable explosive diarrhea... that'll improve your outlook on life. Nothing like shitting your drawers to give you a new perspective on things!"

    Unless these drugs are curing Leprosy, I would think the side effects outweigh the benefits.

    For the spam, for the annoying TV commercials, and especially for my squandered tax dollars, I hereby send a big ol' ...  


NOTE TO READERS: Stop sending me conspiracy theory bullshit about pharmaceutical companies. I'm sick of getting emailed crap about socialistic "free drugs for all" plans, or how to find cheap Canadian, Pakistani or Mexican drugs. I have nothing against the biopharmaceutical industry as a whole, and believe that they are for the most part, doing an excellent job. Anyone who brings a decent product to market should be able to sell it for whatever price they can get for it. It's called Capitalism... get over it!  Many of these companies are taking every penny earned and dumping it straight back into research, so quit whining about the cost. For the most part, nobody's forcing you to buy any. The only time I have a problem is when I AM forced to buy this stuff with my tax dollars as in the example above!
