    I’ll get this posted quick as I gotta get some shut-eye.

    From one of last night’s med charts:

    Focused Assessment Complaint: states she has chest pain and is not feeling well after smoking crack. states that last time she smoked she felt the same way.

    I get paid for people’s stupidity.

    Enjoy your Thursday and don’t smoke any crack!

    Far Ranging Open…Monday.

    Good Morning yinz, I am headed into 8 of 9 days working so any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Let’s get to it…Dorian has a guest post here:

    …The American media relies on the very US Constitution it seeks to overthrow to protect it even as it undermines the rule of law of which the United States Constitution is the foundation of in the United States. There comes a time when the scared villagers seeing that they will receive no redress of their grievances from the law, collectively make the decision to address those grievances themselves…

    AND…a little on the opiate crisis and lawsuits that are working their way through the system.

    PLEASE read both entries in full so that you start to get the gist of all this:

    According to a lawsuit filed by the Massachusetts attorney general, the company pushed big sales of OxyContin from the start. Doing so meant persuading doctors who had been reluctant to prescribe such strong painkillers that this one was safe.

    A court filing asserts that Richard Sackler, then a senior vice president in charge of sales at the company, told the sales force at a launch party for the drug: “The launch of OxyContin Tablets will be followed by a blizzard of prescriptions that will bury the competition. The prescription blizzard will be so deep, dense, and white.”

    Along with others in the industry, Purdue paid doctors who attested to the drug’s safety and became a major funder of groups that advocated for pain patients and campaigned to have opioids prescribed.

    The Associated Press and the Center for Public Integrity found the industry and groups it funded were also politically active, spending more than $880 million nationally on lobbying and campaigns from 2006 through 2015. That spending helped the industry fight off restrictions on prescribing the powerful painkillers.

    The Joint Commission, the bureaucrats who come in and tell you how to run your hospital or you get no Medicare money, are at the ROOT LEVEL of this opiate scourge as they DEMANDED that pain be The 5th Vital sign. I want to know who was taking payoffs over at Joint from the Pharma Companies. Frankly, The Joint has lost pretty much all respect after this from the Medical Community.

    EVERYONE in the medical community that the Joint standards were going to cause addiction rates to skyrocket. EVERYONE.

    NCAA Football Week 3 2019, OPEN THREAD

    O P E N T H R E A D

    Last week we were 2/7, for a total of 4/10. $800/$1000, Vinnie decided to go easy on me and just broke one of my kneecaps…he’s a good Pisan. Oddly, It’s much harder to find Vinnie when I’m winning…

    Let’s take a look at what’s on offer today, but first a definition so that peeps can follow this nonsense:

    It’s like Wall Street without the suits…well, without the non-pin-striped suits. Here is a definition: Point Spread: Also known as the line or spread, it is a number chosen by Las Vegas and overseas oddsmakers that will encourage an equal number of people to wager on the underdog as on the favorite. If fans believe that Team A is two touchdowns better than Team B, they may bet them as 14-point favorites. In a point spread, the negative value (-14) indicates the favorite and the positive value (+14) indicates the underdog. Betting a -14 favorite means the team must win by at least 15 points to cover the point spread. The +14 underdog team can lose by 13 points and still cover the spread.

    Wall Street is legalized, encouraged, and institutional gambling. Betting on college ball is legal, but you are betting on 20 year old kids, hence the reason I don’t use real money! All bets are $100 unless otherwise noted.

    Pittsburgh at #13 Penn State – Sat, Sep 14, 12:00 PM ET…my Beloved Panthers are 17 Point dogs at Ceasar’s. This used to be a YUGE rivalry until the Bastard Joe Paterno killed it, and the dream of a WVU-PITT-PSU led division with his bare hands. I was at PITT when it happened and heard it straight from my friend, Chancellor Emeritus, Wesley Posvar. I get a tear in my eye every time I see his picture. The day he died is the day my PhD died…I was working on Islamic funding of terror. Everything dried up after is death as he, and a professor from Israel who will remain nameless were my only champions. I would go to his house once a week to work on data and get advice. His wife was gracious and a lovely person too. A glass of wine was always ready. They liked me for some reason. Anyway, before I bore yinz to tears, PSU beats the spread.

    #21 Maryland at Temple – Sat, Sep 14, 12:00 PM ET…Maryland looks like they are for real…Caesar’s has them as 6 point favorites and they beat the spread in Philly.

    Stanford at #17 UCF – Sat, Sep 14, 3:30 PM ET…The betting houses are pretty much settled on The Cardinal as a 9 point dog, UCF beats this spread.

    #24 USC at BYU – Sat, Sep 14, 3:30 PM ET…USC beat the dog snot out of the formerly ranked Cardinal last week. They beat the spread again of 4.

    #19 Iowa at Iowa State – Sat, Sep 14, 4:00 PM ET…This is smash-mouth, corn-grown, rivalry football in the mid-west right here. I will watch this game in it’s entirety. The Hawkeyes are giving 1…1 point. They cover.

    Kent State at #8 Auburn – Sat, Sep 14, 7:00 PM ET…WHY? Really, why?

    Incarnate Word has a bye this week…even GOD needs to rest.
