If only someone could invent a pill to enlighten our elected officials.

But then, why stop there?

Much of the emotion evoked by racism is a side effect of anxiety. Beta blockers treat anxiety as well as high blood pressure and heart. The anxiety might be lowered by the medication but the underlying racism is intact.

Medication for the body won't change a person's made up mind. Only education and personal effort to change will do that.[unless we choose zombie pills and pillhead someone senseless,.. we have enough of that, don't we?]

Gotta go, my pill to make me love housework over fishing has failed. Big time.

The amount of the drug to be effective is dependent on sereotypes....

This is referred to as an "off labeling" use of the heart disease medication.

When someone intones that they don't care if they're little green or pink or blue pills what they _really_ saying is, "I don't like black pills."

Makes sense to me. Some people let their racism give them a heart attack.

Naturally, I am skeptical of everything online. http://inhousegeneric.com is legitimate. I placed my first order for the smallest amount possible. It arrived sooner than expected. I didn't pay the extra money for speedy air mail. I placed another order that was much larger and it came right on time. I will definitely use this company again for even larger orders now that I trust them. They also give you discounts every time you place an order which is cool. One thing to keep in mind is if you place a larger order, they will send half in one shipment, and then the other half after that to avoid customs scrutinizing your package. I am very happy, I no longer need to pay tons of money to see a doctor and therapist (and have them tell me a bunch of stuff I already know) in order to get my medication.

Again with checking out my package? What's with the fascination about my package?

Well, I hope nobody was playing "Short People" for them. It is more than a little offensive.

Short people got no reason
Short people got no reason
Short people got no reason
To live

They got little hands
Little eyes
They walk around
Tellin' great big lies
They got little noses
And tiny little teeth
They wear platform shoes
On their nasty little feet

Well, I don't want no short people
Don't want no short people
Don't want no short people
`Round here

Short people are just the same
As you and I
(A fool such as I)
All men are brothers
Until the day they die
(It's a wonderful world)

Short people got nobody
Short people got nobody
Short people got nobody
To love

They got little baby legs
That stand so low
You got to pick em up
Just to say hello
They got little cars
That go beep, beep, beep
They got little voices
Goin' peep, peep, peep
They got grubby little fingers
And dirty little minds
They're gonna get you every time
Well, I don't want no short people
Don't want no short people
Don't want no short people
'Round here

If you omit one part, the song sounds very offensive. But it is meant as a counterpoint to the real message of acceptance buried within.
