All The Cures! The Trumpian Cures!

It’s Mark Taylor, self-styled prophet, who is getting rather feverish over re-electing the Tiny Tyrant. Mr. Taylor is acting as though a second term is already a fact, and I suppose in order to convince others, he’s dangling cures to cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.

Mark Taylor appeared on “The Edge” television program on Saturday night, where he said that during his second term in office, President Trump will release the long-secret cures for cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.

Taylor told host Daniel Ott that Trump’s priority during his first term is cleaning out the corruption in the pharmaceutical industry, which already has such cures but has been keeping them secret because “big pharma doesn’t want you well, they want you sick because that is how they make their money.”

Oh, is that what the Tiny Tyrant has been doing all this time, cleaning out the pharmaceutical industry? Odd, haven’t seen or heard anything like that. The most the fucking idiot has achieved is most presidential time on a golf course, ever. What happened to all that “draining the swamp” business? Oh yes, the big tax plan. Problem there is that one will swamp all of us non-millionaire+ types.

There are a number of problems with pharmaceutical companies, always have been, as they are set up to be capitalistic and competitive. Not having any sort of universal healthcare adds greatly to this problem, because there’s no need to put a cap on the greed when you don’t have to concern yourself with the welfare of your citizens. Of course, there are a healthy number of politicians who have their fingers in pharmaceutical pies, so they don’t want to cut down on that greediness either.

Once Trump eliminates the corruption, Taylor said, we’ll “be fixing to see cures for medical conditions begin to come forth … We’ve had cures for this stuff, Daniel, for years, for decades; for cancer, we’ve got cures out there for Alzheimer’s, all kinds of diseases out there, the cures are there.”

“This could be in [Trump’s] second term that a lot of this stuff starts happening,” Taylor said. “You’re going to see this stuff begin to be released.”

Even if we take a trip into fantasy land here, and momentarily pretend this is true, what kind of a flaming douchehat of an asshole would withhold such information? Any decent person would see such information released, immediately. Of course, we are not talking about a decent person. We’re certainly not talking about a smart one. Unfortunately for us, this won’t happen. For those of use who are reality-based, we can keep supporting research in any way we are able; and we all need to fight like hell to make education a priority once more, and to prevent the Tiny Tyrant and the sociopathic GOP from trying to kill off all the contributions of various sciences. The conservachristians hate science, and they fear it. They can’t oppress people as easily when the populace is knowledgeable and various branches of science continually prove them wrong about, oh, everything. If we are fortunate enough to see cures for anything in the near future, it won’t be thanks to fucking idiots such as yourself, or the self-centered greed machines which make up the current regime.

    Oh my. You do know why that was originally marketed, right? It was for unsightly skinny women -- you got all the curves from ironized yeast! That box and bottle is mint, never opened -- still has the original cotton in the bottle. :D

    The Cascasweet is one of those terrifying things -- that was for infants and young children, and contained 5% grain alcohol, wormseed, cascara, rhubarb, pumpkin seed, senna, rochelle salts, and anise seed. I’m sure you realize most all of those are heavy duty purgatives.

    One of my faves that I didn’t include is my bottle of B&M Liniment. If you open it and get a good whiff, it about knocks you over. The ingredients are Turpentine, Oil of Mustard, Methyl Salicylate, Cold Tar Disinfectant, Balm of Gilead extract, Eggs, Formaldehyde, and Ammonia.

    The Ironized Yeast was probably effective. High in vitamins (folic acid, niacin, pantothenic acid, riboflavin, thiamine et alia), minerals and especially iron, it was probably effective in improving a number of nutritional anemias and other forms of malnutrition. Marmite and Vegemite are modern examples that are still sold and avidly consumed around the world. I, for one, know there is a jar of Marmite in my kitchen. Do you have one in yours, hrrmm??

    (No cracks about my voluptuous curves!)

  4. Raucous Indignation says

    The Cascasweet sounds amazing and more than adequately effective. I, again for one, would have never have thought to combine cascara and senna and potassium sodium tartrate tetrahydrate in the same draught. And then top it off with the raw fiber of pumpkin seeds. And then add the gastrointestinal toxicity (potentially lethal in large doses) from the essential oils of foofin’ wormseed. Clearly this bespeaks of a moribund lack of imagination on my part. But I am but the Simple Country Doctor of Nofunnington. I should not be held to too high a standard.

    Have you offered the Marmite to the rats?
    I mean, they eat paint.
    And the tubes containing the paint.

    There is an empty marmite jar in my recycling, an open jar with the other open preserves and an unopened jar in the store cupboard. We do not run out of marmite any more than we run out of Bovril cubes (cubes, not the poxy spread which is just wrong).

    Anyone who talks about ‘a’cure for cancer doesn’t knw what they are talking about. We already have preventatives for some cancers, cures for a some and treatment to slow others.

  7. jazzlet says

    According to Mr Jazz a pint of Bovril is the best cure for minor ills like colds, and in days gone past hangovers. I was brought up on Marmite so of course I think its delicious, although less so than it used to be, it was diluted some years back so the manufacturers could claim it was less salty *sigh*. Marmite and crisp lettuce makes a great sandwich.
