<quoted text>The "rest" of society? Do you actually think that other than you all of society is dependent upon or takes medication for high cholesterol or high blood pressure?
They don't- but for most of those who do, taking those pills or not taking them is a matter of life and death.
Only a MORON would refuse to take a pill if told by a doctor that the medication was the only way to get their cholesterol or blood pressure under control and that without that medication, they could risk a heart attack or death.
And too funny- you refuse to take pills that are prescribed ONLY if they are needed- yet you SMOKE cigarettes which is DEFINITELY not needed and is also reported to contribute to high cholesterol AND high blood pressure- TOO TOO funny!
And yes- I am also a smoker, but luckily for me, my BP is ALWAYS normal and a very good normal at 120/70 most times and my cholesterol is also within normal range.
Still and all, if I had high cholesterol or high blood pressure and chose to continue smoking, I would most definitely take medication that could save my life.
Then again, yesterday you claimed that as a born-again Christian, you will never die........so no reason not to add another delusion to your already delusional mind- that being that the "rest" of society is dependent on drugs, which is NOT the case, but even if it was, being dependent on something that could mean the difference between living and dying is NOT a bad thing.
I won't die. My body will, sure. That's how God made us. My soul will be forever. Deal with it.

Why is it "stupid" to dent high BP meds? My BP was something like 145/105, the doc tried to prescribe me meds (the easy way out). I flat out told him no, I'll fix it myself. In just a few months, I had it down to a better rate. It's held there for many years now. I didn't "need" medication.

When I say the "rest of society", of course I don't mean everyone but me. There's a lot of folks out there that refuse worthless medication.

BUT, 61% of Americans are on some type if medication for a "chronic" health problem. 25% of seniors take 5 pills a day. That's a lot of pill poppers. It's become an epidemic all it's own. We're becoming a pill dependent society. The scary thing is the long term repercussions that are unknown.

Look at those ridiculous pill commercials. How many side effects are people willing to put up with? Sure, your heart rate will drop, but you'll get hit flashes, bed sites, anal leakage, loss iof hearing, erectile dysfunction, etc, etc..... It's NOT worth it.

Speaking of new favorite words- what a "coincidence" that you used the word "rhetorical"- a word you NEVER use- just a short time after I used that very same word today.....

Go ahead- deny, deny, deny.......

What do I call a white Brazilian? A caucasian or white South American and/or Brazilian.
A white South African? Just that.
huh.....

So you'd call a white South African a white South African, but you call YOURSELF a Caucasian and not a white American........

Very strange.

But thanks for making my point, you white American.

In the case of African-Americans, that denotes a POSSIBLE nationality IF they are from Africa as well as a RACE.
African-American is NOT a race- on that you are correct, but AFRICAN IS a race in ADDITION to possibly being a NATIONALITY as well.
African is a race?

Why isn't North American a race?

Answer: Because African isn't a race.

I don't know why it's stupid to dent high BP meds- maybe to make them easier to swallow?

As to the rest of your post- you make some valid points and some not valid at all.

To each his- or HER- own, RR- you're very cocky at the age of 46- I don't really hold that against you as I am also very cocky about my age of 58, but I also know that can change on a dime- the stupid commercials notwithstanding- which, btw, have ALL those disclaimers due to wanting to avoid law suits for the pretty rare occurrences of any of those things happening.

In any case, if I had to choose between hot flashes and dying, chances are I'd suffer through the flashes.

MANY people would think any or all of the possible- yet highly improbable- side effects would be worth it if it meant saving their lives as well as improving the OVERALL QUALITY of their lives.

BTW, fix your typos- and I don't care if by chance you are posting from your phone- get a grip.

LIAR- just earlier I posted that when asked my race- and it depends on HOW I am being asked- I will say I am either Caucasian or white.

That is my RACE. So you are a LIAR- I did post I say I am either white or Caucasian.

Indeed- I AM a white OR Caucasian American!

You're finally getting it....maybe.....but before I rush to judgement on that, let's see if you can get THIS part:

My RACE is white or Caucasian.

My NATIONALITY is American.

Put it all together and you will see that I don't disagree with you saying I am a white American- as I surely am.

The term "white American" denotes one's RACE followed by denoting one's NATIONALITY.

Got it now?

Sigh.....AFRICAN denotes a SKIN COLOR. It also denotes a geographic location.

Just as ASIAN is a race which also denotes a geographic location.

Just as CAUCASIAN is a race which can also denote a geographic location.

If the word "African" upsets you when used to denote what black people are, then knock yourself out and just say "black" race if that makes you feel better.

North American isn't a race because it ONLY denotes a geographic location.

Do you honestly think EUROPE is a race? Or that each country in Europe is a SEPARATE race- such as French race, Italian race, British race, German race, etc.???

Hi everyone. I have some sad news to report. Roadrunner, that used to post on this thread, apparently died during a minor surgery on Monday. Those of us who knew her, would remember her for being a smart, intelligent and considerate poster. For those of you lucky enough to know her beyond Topix, you would know the bravery she has shown in face of the medical problems she had. She was a great lady. RIP RR
I'm sorry for you and your friend. I don't recognize the name.

How is that not proof of the existence of Thor? Doesn't the very fact that you're amongst us, here, breathing and living proves that Thor lived forst. No explanation to give. It's beyond our understanding. No Thor, no life. Exclamation point!
