Canada does not have the best Medicare, not even close.. why?

conser-1

Canada’s health-care system compared to other public systems world wide is a let down and the US private system also doesn’t score very well internationally.

.

There are many , many reasons for a start the Doctors and nurses who kill patients, neglect them do not face any negative consequences at all for a start.

.

I have had many American tell me in the US that we have a good Medical system because it is free.. Being free does not  insure a good medical care system if Doctors and Nurses are rarely supervised. The public-private Swiss health system comes first.

.

The Canadian  system also like the U.S. system does  sucks up loads of  money all without producing discernibly better outcomes.

.

In most categories, Canada comes between the middle and the bottom – except in spending, where Canada is in the upper third, per capital.

.

It is the  politicians crap that  Canada having the best Medicare system in the world.

.

” Among 11 countries, Canada ranks last or second-last in getting same- or next-day doctor appointments, finding after-hours care, waiting for more than two months for a specialist appointment or four months for elective surgery.” Getting to see God can be a real nightmare..

.

Canadian patients spend more time in Hospitals per stay, than anywhere else except Japan. Why?  There are too few doctors to look after the patients, the medical system relies on interns  in training and nurses mostly still for the average patient care. Having more beds will not help .

.

Governments, and Hospitals are working  next, now on kicking more people out of hospitals, to  get them out more quickly and still not rather insuring they get helped medically.

.

What does the public think of Medicare? You have to  firstly get admitted to the hospital to find out you are not getting the best care  there possible.

.

When people ask for  “fundamental changes,” what do they mean..  They firstly do want the bad doctors and bad nurses, bad  hospital administrators, fired, discharged not covered up over and over again..

.

The problem is there is not only a lack of accountabilty, but the money is not properly managed.. Ottawa transfers $32-billion a year to the provinces for health care,  but how well is it spent? Many useless  medical test are done in hospitals still as well.

.

So “Ottawa spends another $7.2-billion for specialized health care, including $2.5-billion for aboriginals, $1.1-billion for veterans, $571-million for the military and $614-million for the Public Health Agency. Ottawa also spends money to sponsor medical research.” So what?  Putting more money in pails full of holes is wasteful..

As if the oil downturn, recession is not enough for Alberta

alberta

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency confirmed on Friday that it had found a case of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), also known as mad cow disease, in a beef cow in Alberta.  BSE — a progressive, fatal neurological disease — is believed to be spread when cattle eat protein rendered from the brains and spines of infected cattle or sheep. Canada banned that practice in 1997.  Exports of Canadian beef were repeatedly  badly hit in 2003 after the first case of BSE was found on a farm. A fresh discovery of BSE may close borders to Canadian beef and reduce the price of beef for Canadian Consumers again.

.

The  scenario that’s unfolded in Alberta in the past month is frightening .  The drop in oil prices has hit Alberta like a bomb. Few saw it coming.   A long-term over supply means “the new equilibrium price of oil will likely be much lower than over the past decade.”  So the news out of the oil towers in downtown Calgary, Edmonton gets worse every day. Everything from employment to local real estate markets are starting to  seriuosly suffer. Job losses in the Alberta oil patch have become almost daily events in oil patch and are even mounting  as the oil price collapse is pushing the past-vibrant Alberta economy into a dramatic downward spiral,  meaning more than 60,000 lost jobs . The Alberta  Government is facing $21-billion resource revenue shortfall over three years. Finance Minister, Robin Campbell, announced the upcoming budget will have a 9 per cent cut in program spending. In addition, the province will cut five per cent across the board, which will mean a $2.2-billion reduction in overall spending, year over year.  Likely nothing, including health care and education, is considered  untouchable.  “They’re destroying business confidence by threatening to tax anything that moves — tax on sugar, tax on gas, Alberta health-care premiums, and raising our 10-per-cent flat tax rate.”  Alberta’s premier Jim Prentice has said public-sector unions must do their part in light of low oil prices, as he called the present wages for teachers, nurses and other civil servants unsustainable. The cities of Calgary and Edmonton, both of which  depend on significant cash infusions from the province, will likely have to put their dreams on hold for a long while.The budget cuts trigger outrage in Alberta.  ” The news was reminiscent of the mid-1990s when then-premier Ralph Klein — faced with a crippling, $20-billion debt — gutted parts of the provincial civic service, eliminating thousands of jobs. Grants to schools, hospitals, universities and municipalities were frozen. ”  People in other parts of the country are saying  Albertans have not resided in real world for some time.  Only now are there concerns about the Alberta’s poor as the spending reductions could have severe consequences for family, child and disability agencies that rely on government grants to pay staff and administer social services. The pain felt elsewhere in Canada  now in Alberta is real.

.

Never mind what the spin doctors will say about Alberta’s future, the  present home of Canada’s prime Mister Stephen Harper  as the present reality is  that Alberta is mainly an  oil and gas, tourists, dependent on its resource sector and  the province has long relied on both the economic activity and the direct revenue from royalties and land sales to underpin government budgets but now this bubble has burst again,  the Oil’s price plunge means a bumpy ride in  all  sales, the economy in Alberta.   ‘Oil Prices are not going to bounce back:’ Prentice gloomy about quick oil recovery. Oil’s price collapse sends shiver across Alberta’s real estate market. Home prices fall also  in Calgary as real estate chill deepens.  Sales are down 7.5 per cent versus a year ago, while the  new listings have   “gushed” 42 per cent higher.  The Bank of Canada’s decision this week to slash its trend-setting interest rate a quarter of a percentage point to 0.75 per cent will not help to pay the high home mortgages many have there. You also cannot borrow more money, or buy more when facing a job cut.  School fees in Alberta triple in five years.   The out-of-pocket cost of sending a child to public schools in Alberta nearly tripled in five years as boards became increasingly dependent on fees to meet their budgets, and the Edmonton police are focusing more energy on   property crimes which  have climbed significantly. There have been 23 break and enters, 28 thefts from vehicles, and 20 thefts of vehicles in the area during the first few weeks of 2015. That is double number of property crimes the neighbourhood experienced at the same time in 2014 .  “The fact that these school fees have increased during a period when this province had record revenues is just not fair to the average Alberta family,”

.

Alberta’s surprise recessions are not much of a surprise to the wise… for false pride still comes before a great fall.. lay off the too many abusive cops, bad city hall employees as well in Alberta and save the money now too. You have to be rather kind, nice to everyone, even the Albertans now too, cause you do not know to whom you will go begging for help next as well.  In reality History repeats itself.. remember the 1980’s. 2009-10 when in Alberta Jobs were lost, homes went into foreclosures, property values went down due the flood of homes for sale on the market. divorce increased. Sadly they in Alberta do not learn not the first, second or the third time. When they were rich, proud and arrogant the Conservative leaders of Alberta were too proud to heed to others, to take advice… but now that they are facing serious ,drastic economic downturn they merely pretend they are ready to listen.. and how long will that next last? Instead of saving , planning effectively for a rain days the politicians of Alberta were living high on the hog, spending the citizens money, and not really caring about the citizens own good welfare. ” The Alberta government didn’t have a plan unless you consider shovelling money out the back door as fast as it came in the front to be a plan. “Making use of the revenues” meant spending the revenues. When times were good it outspent every other province in the country on a per-capita basis. It may have been a Conservative government in name, but its spending was liberal, in every sense of the word. Many Albertans told them to save more, even the Liberals. It might be hard for many Canadians, particularly in hard-hit Ontario, to feel much sympathy for this western province. After all, there was a distinct cockiness in the way “The New West” asserted its newfound position of fiscal superiority this decade over Central Canada in particular.” They had often rubbed it all proudly in our face, Alberta’s wealth, it’s importance, no taxes, a great future, and what ever before that.. Because too many Albertans were openly bashing the poor people for decades as well, now they too do have to walk in a poor man’s shoes themselves.. I REMEMBER WHEN MANY ARROGANT ALBERTANS, POLITICIANS USED TO FALSELY BOAST ON THE NET ABOUT THEIR PROSPERITY.. and I would reply they need to be really now more considerate of the poor people and the rest of Canada for they too will ONE DAY be on social aid, EVEN asking other Canadians to help them.. it is funny how reality comes to pass with time even in Alberta.

The OIL PRICE DROPS impacts are spreading across the economy, which the arrogant government of Prime Minister Stephen Harper has held up as being a huge beneficiary of energy-sector expansion. Alberta and other provinces reaped major financial rewards as the industry plowed tens of billions of dollars into operations and hired armies of workers as oil boomed. No more!  “The oil downturn is also complicating Ottawa’s finances as the federal government prepares a pre-election budget , the price collapse prompted the government to delay its 2015 budget. The Finance Minister Joe Oliver’s Nov. 12 economic update projected a $1.9-billion (Canadian) surplus for the coming year based on an assumption of $81 (U.S.) oil. Since then, the Bank of Canada has opted to use $55 oil for its forecasts, and earlier economic projections of a significant rebound in prices this year have evaporated in recent weeks.” The country’s largest private mortgage insurer Genworth MI Canada Inc.,  says it expects rising losses on its portfolio of Alberta mortgages this year.  The Alberta mortgages in the last two years,  borrowers tended to have relatively high loan-to-value ratio, with equity averaging just 16 per cent in 2013 and 9 per cent in 2014, due to slow home price appreciation and borrowers paying off less of the principal on their mortgages in those years, the company had  said. Genworth Canada’s own stock has plummeted 25 per cent since November.

IT IS UNDERSTANDABLE THAT THE BAD GUYS DO NOT LIKE THE TABLE TURNED AGAINST THEM.. TO BAD FOR THEM.. I LIVED IN ALBERTA FOR 15 YEARS AND I SAW THAT THEY THEY HAD FALSELY REFUSED TO SEE THE HAND WRITING ON THE WALL.. TOO OFTEN TOO.

.

(Mat 7:3 KJV)  And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4  Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? 5  Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.

.

Thine habitation is in the midst of deceit;  (Jer 9:6 KJV)  

.

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. Galatians 6:7

.

In the last 10 years, crime rates have fallen roughly 27 per cent but costs have risen 44 per cent in policing and 33 per cent in corrections. Our prisoner population has managed to stay constant.  Is that a paradox? Or is that because those in the system are smart enough to ensure they all keep working and our prisons remain full, even though there are far fewer crimes. Also the report notes “the most embarrassing lacunae in Canadian data” is the lack of useful information on our courts — “we have no systemic way of assessing whether the courts are getting more or less effective in dealing with the cases that they see, let alone understanding how much as a society we are paying. For a developed nation, this is disappointing to say the least … How bad is it?”  It’s appalling — even mischief cases take more than half a year on average to process.  First Nations represent about four per cent of the population but more and more of them are being imprisoned — from 13 per cent of the offenders in custody in 1998 to 20 per cent a decade later. In Saskatchewan, 80 per cent of inmates are native. In Manitoba it’s 70 per cent, in (Racists) Alberta 40 per cent.In those three provinces, aboriginal people also are least likely to be given probation or conditional sentences. That is a major scandal that demands investigation..  http://www.vancouversun.com/Mulgrew+Cost+crime+rises+crime+rate+falls/10296393/story.html
.

Exemplary Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty serves very ones best interest… too often still missing in the PROFESSIONAL BODIES, EVEN IN THE RCMP, police   forces, churches, ALL GOVERNMENTS  as well it seems too.

Blocked investigation into Alberta’s tailings ponds

oil-sands

Canada has blocked an investigation into Alberta’s tailings ponds by NAFTA’s environmental watchdog.

.

“It shows that the Canadian government is willing to circumvent institutions that make sure Canada upholds environmental laws.”

.

It’s the third time in a year Canada has successfully stopped NAFTA’s scrutiny of its environmental behaviour.

.

Two environmental groups and three private citizens had asked the commission to investigate whether tailings ponds were leaking into nearby rivers and creeks in northern Alberta.

.

In 2014, with Mexico’s support, it stopped investigations into polar bear protection and B.C. salmon farms.

http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/nafta-probe-of-alberta-s-tailings-ponds-blocked-by-canada-1.2935004

.

And “Canada, the oil sands’ poor image isn’t just a question of bad PR.  Anti-oil sands sentiment has made it nearly impossible to build the necessary pipeline connections producers need to get all that oil to market. TransCanada Corp.’s crossborder Keystone XL pipeline is in danger of being axed by U.S. President Barack Obama. The industry’s backup plan, Enbridge Inc.’s Northern Gateway pipeline to shipping terminals on the B.C. coast, has become bogged down in political and environmental controversy. Even TransCanada’s Energy East proposal, a sort of backup for the backup, has encountered unexpected political resistance in Ontario and Quebec—two provinces the diluted bitumen must transit through on its way to refineries in New Brunswick.”

.

” Alberta’s oilsands produce more greenhouse gas emissions than some European countries right now and will produce more than all of the world’s volcanoes in just 11 years if the pace of development continues, a new report says.  People will post 1001 excuses justifying this disaster.  http://www.cbc.ca/canada/story/2009/09/13/greenpeace-oilsands.html until it is too late to do anything about it..Remember Chernobyl” 
.

SADLY ECONOMICS DO CONTROL THE VIABILITY OF CANADA’S OIL SANDS PROJECTS.  Economics alone   SHOULD NOT now  control the direct oil sand extraction  process, engineering as well and also now not all firms are equally environmentally conscious, concerned so they all do now need to be better managed here, something that has falsely not been adequately done for sure so far.. and yes neither by the provincial or the federal governments HAVE DONE A GOOD JOB HERE. GREED AND PROFIT CANNOT BE ALLOWED TO OVER RULE SAFETY,  THE ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES, etc

Real accountability and real fairness needed in Canada

1-canada-quebec-flag

.

Guilty, tried and convicted outside of the courts tends to apply mainly for the ordinary citizens but not for police, public and civil servants, politicians..

.

The hypocrisy is incredible too many  politicians are  caught “do as I say and not as I do” World.  No big surprise here. The Politicians, police, bad civil and public servants can do what we normal citizens aren’t  allowed to do.

.

The reality is that hardened criminals and hardened policeman too, bad civil and public servants, bad politicians are an acceptable threat to anyone and both need to be equally prosecuted by the law.  It is necessary to get both of these type of bad people of the streets.

New medical studies confirm what I for years have written here..

life (3)

 

Nearly 40 per cent of hospital infection control experts believe their hospital is not clean enough to prevent spread of the toxic gut infection C. difficile and other potentially lethal organisms, a national survey has found.

About one-quarter million Canadians will be sickened this year with an infection they pick up in hospital, and death rates from highly drug-resistant microbes are rising.

Yet the new survey found that just 62 per cent of lead infection control staff believe their hospital is sufficiently clean.

“We’re just not achieving the results we need,” said the study’s lead author, Dr. Dick Zoutman, an infectious disease specialist and professor in the school of medicine at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ont.

Canada’s negative reality

conser-1

Canada’s negative reality is not solely the self serving pretentious government, leaders at  the federal, provincial municipal levels but it is till also includes the still much too many  bad professionals such as bad Police services and bad medical personnel.

Go to a Hospital  and 30 percent of you shall acquire a serious Hospital acquired, sickness, disease  leading even to death for may of you too..

It will likely include

1: the shit disease, c-difficile, caused by unwashed hands when you got to the toilet and passed on to others.

2: Food poisonings often disguised by another medical term..

3: Medical errors, including wrong prescription pills..

So demand our paid  civil and public servants do a better job of taking care of us..

HOSPITALS OR THE POLICE ARE NOT THE ONLY POORLY MANAGED PLACES.. SO ARE OUR CITY HALLS, PROVINCIAL CORPORATIONS.. The Quebec Charbonneau Commission is putting out a call for public input on stopping corruption in Quebec.

“Well,  the first thing that needs to be done is to make the justice system more effective in discouraging corruption.  At the moment, most of the key players who were involved in the corruption schemes will probably get away with no punishment or, at worst, a tiny penalty representing a modicum of the amount stolen. The current justice system is sending a clear message that, indeed, it pays to be crooked and corrupt!  The law should be, in my view, that those caught, as a given, should be stripped of their assets, including those transferred to spouses and relatives. The guiding criteria should be that the higher the crime the higher the punishment!  We have seen in the last few years a number of public inquiries that cost more than the derived benefits. It seems to me that despite all such enquiries, corruption appears to persist unchecked, simply because the law did not prosecute vigorously the main players to the degree to discourage them from further corruption  or to discourage others from engaging in such corruptive activities. It is a joke, for example, when a main player in the Federal sponsorship scandal was charged 10 years later, after the fact,  when he was in his 80s! The public is not encouraged to do its part, even if it could, unless the public has confidence  in the justice system, and based on the latest poll question on this site, the public clearly does not have confidence in the justice system.  When it was reported in a well respected magazine that Quebec was the most corrupt province,  the public officials at every level denounced the article. The author of the article in question was a French Canadian and member of the public trying do his civic duty to expose something that was not right.  So, why should the public be motivated to help, if the system is screwed up at the very core of a society, the justice system?   Dominic ” Read more: http://montreal.ctvnews.ca/charbonneau-commission-calls-for-public-input-on-halting-corruption-1.1690144#

Catching the liars in the act in Quebec’s Medicare, Hospitals

canada-seniors-abuse1

 

 

The Big Lie–

The triage doctor says now do not  worry we will not let your old mother starve to death, or not give her water to drink, we will take good care of her and help to make her better…  TRANSLATION – the nurse next says if your mother  does not want to eat or drink she will die likely within  5 days, cause we will not force feed her, we are not allowed to do so..

The next big lie

WE HAVE AN EXCELLENT PALLIATIVE CARE UNIT FOR SICK SENIORS  AND WE WOULD LIKE TO TAKE REALLY  GOOD CARE OF YOUR MOTHER..

TRANSLATION.. IT IS NOT FREE, FREE MEDICARE WILL NOW NOT COVER IT,  RATHER  SHE NOW HAS  TO PAY FOR IT.. SO TELL US HOW MUCH MONEY DOES SHE NOW HAVE.. WHO ADMINSTRATES HER ESTATE?

Private (Residents admitted on or after July 1, 2013 $77.64 $2,361.55
In Quebec Daily Monthly
Standard Room $35.61 $1,083.00
Semi-Private Room $47.87 $1,456.00
Private Room

 It is still a criminal act now for any doctor, nurse, hospital  administrators, medical supervisor not to provide medical care to any seniors. How many have been prosecuted for this in the last year?

EVEN TEN NURSES STILL WILL NOT MAKE ONE GOOD DOCTOR

conser-1

 

I HAVE TO SAY I AM A GREAT FAN OF DOCTORS, PARTICULARLY SINCE I FOUND MOST PEOPLE’S PERSONAL OPINIONS, MEDICAL ADVICE IS CRAP AND TRYING TO DIAGNOSE A MEDICAL SOLUTION TO A SICKNESS ON THE INTERNET TENDS TO BE USELESS AT LEAST 99 PERCENT OF THE TIME STILL TOO..

.

WHEN YOU HAVE A SERIOUS SICKNESS IT TAKES REAL DOCTORS AND REAL MEDICAL TESTING TO HELP YOU.. AND WHATEVER YOUR PROBLEM IS EVEN SUCH AS  INFECTION, GLAND, HEART, SKIN, CANCER  PROBLEMS TOO NOW

.

Now I have been to many doctors, and to many Hospitals, I seem to have tried  half of them in Montreal, especially since I have had  two very senior   parents.. so I have been able to acquire a lot of basic medical knowledge  that I have shared on the net  at   http://stayinhealth.wordpress.com/

UNFORTUNATELY THERE ARE STILL GOOD AND BAD DOCTORS AND GOOD AND BAD NURSES TOO..

I HAVE TO SAY I HAVE TOO OFTEN  MET MOSTLY STILL STUPID NURSES, ESPECIALLY THE BASIC ONES WHO DO NOT HAVE A UNIVERSITY DEGREE.. EVEN TEN NURSES STILL WILL NOT MAKE ONE GOOD DOCTOR. Also the good nurses serve the sick patient, the bad nurses bully them..

.

Millions of persons have diabetes, and many of them  do not even know it.. Now  diabetes is not to be taken lightly for it has serious negative personal side effects. Diabetes is influenced by genes, and the food we eat, exercise as well.

.

NOW  EVEN MOST MEDICAL PERSONAL  MAY KNOW SOMETHING  ABOUT DIABETES, (SOME HOW I REALLY DOUBT IT AS THEY TEND TO TOO OFTEN FALSELY SKIP MEALS, THAT ITSELF IS A CAUSE OF DIABETES EVEN,)  BUT THAT DOES NOT MEAN THEY UNDERSTAND NOW HOW TO DEAL WITH IT..

.

Reminds me a University college graduate had boasted to me he had learned all about Computers in University.. so I put him down in front of my computer and said to him show me what you can do.. I was shocked next  when he really could not use a computer still, he said he had learned everything from a textbook.. He lacked real practical experiences.. that is true about diabetes when it comes to many medical personnel,  Doctors and Nurses included.
.
MANY PEOPLE MAKE A VERY  SERIOUS ERROR AND ASSUME THAT DIABETES IS IRREVERSIBLE.. THAT IS NOT ALWAYS THE CASE.. AS TYPE 2  DIABETES CAN BE OFTEN  REVERSED IF YOU NEXT DO TAKE PROPER STEPS TO MANAGE IT..
.
BUT MOST PEOPLE ALSO MAKE A SERIOUS ASSUMPTION THAT DOCTORS CAN FULLY TREAT PATIENTS WITH HEART PROBLEMS, AND THE PROBLEM CAN BE REVERSED.. DREAM ON.. ONCE YOU HAVE HEART PROBLEMS YOU TEND TO STILL HAVE THE MANY NEGATIVE SIDE EFFECTS THAT CAN BE PARTIALLY MANAGED BUT NOT ELIMINATED.. YOU WILL NEVER AGAIN LIVE A HEALTHY NORMAL LIFE AS YOU DID BEFORE YOUR HEART PROBLEMS.. YOU HAVE NOW A STILL BROKEN TRANSMISSION SYSTEM.
.
Now I had many a Montreal  CLSC nurse wasting hours of my time by trying to have me  explain everything that  I had learned from the doctors about diabetes..  but that was, is not my Job to teach her.. The CLSC staff and nurses should already know ALL about diabetes and what is the proper nursing care too.. especially when they deal with a lot of seniors..  And  it is not the Nurses Job also now  to act as a Doctor, to question what the Doctor has told me personally to do in regard to my own diabetes control or that of myself or of my  mother.. she can contact the doctor  herself.. and learn from him..  
.
Note Insulin recommendations  levels   given by Doctors  given   by needles  are not like Pills where you   just take  time.. Needle based insulin has to be adjusted  by all diabetes patients too according to the persons actual sugar level  and also adjusted according  to how much the patient actually eats.. I follow the Doctors  specific instructions now and not the Nurses here too.
.
A CLSC Nurse was complaining to me she was overworked, but it clearly was very apparent to me she was placing herself in a role of a Doctor, diagnosing  sickness and providing medical advice too  but that is not her role firstly even.
.
Please inform all of the Nurses even in Quebec to mind their own businesses,  and that their Job is to be a Nurse and not try to be  doctors, and/or try to improve on what a doctor says..

PS: For a start the government says it has 45 days to review my complaint, they will likely wait for the last minute before they whitewash everyone again..
,
Let me be clear to you  again and  you can talk to me freely anytime you want too. But  I had made a simple request  that  I do not want  this bad nurse to be thrust upon us, nor to see ever again this bad nurse that has been falsely acting in a dictatorial manner, fighting with me, trying to be a doctor, demanding that I do things for her in my house, nor  does my  mother. Our own witnesses of her poor nursing services Is undeniable.

We know that the usage of crack cocaine is very serious and costly

Be sure your sins will find you out and the reputation also will suffer .  You bought and used an illegal drug

.

What Toronto Mayor Rob Ford should know..  Now by now we all should be used to the too many expensive liars we do daily encounter in governments, news media, police and even in Churches.. the lying spin doctors are now too often trying to justify their pay and they do lie to us by telling us all that they are all doing a good job in serving us, in looking after all of our good welfare, even while the rich get richer and the poor people get poorer in Canada now too, but still visibly we can clearly see this is not so and real justice too often is an expensive undertaking, a mockery.. it now rarely happens..
.
A good name is worth more over any amount of silver or Gold you can acquire too. 
.
(Prov 22:1 KJV)  A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.
 
(Eccl 7:1 KJV)  A good name is better than precious ointment; and the day of death than the day of one’s birth
.
(Isa 26:10 KJV)  Let favour be showed to the wicked, yet will he not learn righteousness: in the land of uprightness will he deal unjustly, and will not behold the majesty of the LORD.
.
Eccl 7:17 KJV)  Be not over much wicked, neither be thou foolish: why shouldest thou die before thy time?
 .
(Lam 2:14 KJV)  Thy prophets have seen vain and foolish things for thee: and they have not discovered thine iniquity, to turn away thy captivity; but have seen for thee false burdens and causes of banishment.
 .
(Eccl 7:8 KJV)  Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof: and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.
 .
(Eccl 7:9 KJV)  Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosom of fools.
(Eccl 5:15 KJV)  As he came forth of his mother’s womb, naked shall he return to go as he came, and shall take nothing of his labour, which he may carry away in his hand.
  .
(Eccl 12:13 KJV)  Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
.
(1 Tim 6:9 KJV)  But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. 9  But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. 10  For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. 11  But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness
.
Here also is what I know for sure, the older the person is the more extreme, more severe, the more difficult the punishment has  to be on them to cause them to personally to change in their own  negative ways, for they are too set in them now too.   And most bad persons  employ false denial techniques that build more walls between them and others.
.
We all must take any personal addiction seriously because 25% of North Americans die as a result of substance abuse. The average alcoholic dies twenty-six years earlier than he or she would otherwise. Drug users, alcoholics, cheaters, abusers, adulterers affect negatively continually too the lives of at least six others. Establish Boundaries, Set Limits, Set detachement.  One example of setting a boundary is telling a close friend, aloved one  that you prefer they not be around you if they are smoking,  drunk or high. Notice that it is specific deamnd, and you have to sit down and communicate this type of request explicitly with that someone. Setting a boundary like this is difficult because there is this tendency to hurt other’s feelings. But that is part of what is keeping you ineffective– your caring more about this person’s feelings than your own personal well being. Setting boundaries is about putting your own personal well being and even that of others first, and letting that be a guiding example of how to live. You know you are setting effective boundaries when you are taking back control of your own life firstly and starting to regain your own sanity–instead of being all wrapped up in the problems of a struggling smoker, rebel, drug addict or alcoholic.

True happiness cannot be in reality achieved without having a continual, personal relationship with Jesus here on earth and us continually knowing and following solely his will of our life too, instead of Idols. Why is Jesus God jealous of …idols before us? well it means he is envious for our own good.. he strives for all things to be our good… What idols? what ever replaces God is an idol.. what ever you falsely worship as substitute for God. And it can be drugs, booze, sex, or your wife, son , daughter, a persons, car, self, even your church, your pastor, your denomination, your own doctrines, beliefs, your culture, nationality … for we all had or have a god shaped vacuum in our life.. but filling it with extremes or false substitutes, junk will never be acceptable to God. Never. If you still do have a God shaped vacuum that is unfilled, then no other things, no relationships or careers, goals, next will satisfy you, not even any personal, social, community relationships, acts.  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/09/14/a-good-name-is-rather-to-be-chosen-over-great-riches/

While ones’ admission of  alcohol use, marijuana use, dependency on pain killers, or even snorting cocaine maybe, could often be still  ridden out supposedly but not hidden, but still done not without any negative personal consequences, or leads to the usage of more bad drugs even,  even  the usage of crack cocaine which is very serious and costly for all.. .

You do the crime you alone pay the time or the cost of treatment is still a fact of life.  It is naïve to expect others to help you or they will pay the costs of your treatment

.

Crack cocaine is by far the most commonly used street-drug in Canada. It causes incredible physical suffering to those who are dependent. It destroys families and erodes social supports leading to isolation, hopelessness and homelessness. It is linked to criminal activity and violence.

.

There are many thousands of people across Canada who use crack — many on a daily basis, the underclass of Canadian society. Crack cocaine is by far the most commonly used street-drug in Canada. It causes incredible physical suffering to those who are dependent. It destroys families and erodes social supports leading to isolation, hopelessness and homelessness. It is linked to criminal activity and violence. Even among drug users, “crack heads” are considered at the bottom rung of the drug use ladder. The bad crack People are to be avoided and thus are also demonized.

.

Although Crack is cheap, readily available, it is immediately  habit-forming. It is a powerful euphoric agent that can dampen the pain and make troubles disappear.but is short-lived and within minutes the one’s depressions and troubles haven’t disappeared, but there is an intense desire to use crack and do it  over and over again..


The  vast majority of crack smokers in Canada are extremely marginalized, living in poverty, and spend a lot of their time chasing after crack.

.

The treatment of crack is costly and thus for the most part crack usage is very much  untreatable and a serious personal and financial threat to our cities. 

.

So  crack users are a menace to society and now  criminal punishment is the only way to curb the problem. The sole response has been to use the criminal justice system to seek out the dealers and the users and to round them up and put them in jail. There is no reasonable  alternative approach towards the who got people started  on crack in the first place.

.

Now we are  not all callous and vindictive, but because of the impractical extremely high for engagement, care, treatment, and crack recovery treatment is unavailable generally

.

Instead of Society now confronting the health and social problems associated with crack use in Canadian cities, we have rightfully  left this to a less costly approach,  to law enforcement that continue to fill up jails with these people who are addicted and mentally ill.

.

It is true that our tools to manage, reduce and eliminate crack use are very limited. Research has shown that the psychological dependency on crack cocaine is very intense and that simply insisting on abstinence rarely works. There are currently no pharmacologic interventions available and programs that offer even the most basic psychotherapy are limited.

.

We also do know that at the very least people who are using crack must get out of the environment where they are using in order to avoid the cues that perpetuate their use. That itself is an unreasonable expectation..

.

A costly new research into alternative approaches to the vast cocaine dependency is not sustainable. No one can suggest that bad drug use can be managed through tough law enforcement but any alternative is financially unfeasible.  

.

Because of the costs, lack of money,  our politicians, policy-makers, and even health care professionals, have turned a blind eye to the personal problem of crack cocaine.

.

With crack cocaine and all of its serious health and social consequences, costs  in full public view, what else can the user expect now? Pay the costs for using it.. Yes even  the doctors can lie to you and say they can help you, but not if you do not have the money to pay for their services.

.

One here reaps what one sows.. so what is strange about that?

.

.

People in leadership office do have to face higher penalties as an example now too. It is clearly established, accepted fact by most people that those in leadership civil and public servants cops, teachers, ministers, politicians included  are always to be exemplary in behavior,  conduct and they do need to maintain their high standards even out of their working hours, thus to do so they are also to be exemplary  judged, prosecuted  for their own wrong doings with a higher standard over those of us ordinary folks.

.

Toronto mayor Rob . Ford is  a suspected alcoholic too,  and  is also a well-connected person, pals with Stephen Harper and Jim Flaherty, who also like to consume alcohol…

.

Jesus is the only successful treatment for alcohol and bad drug usage.. but no one can force you to use his services..

Misleading advertising

medical
.
Hey I do admit  it  that I do hate outright blatant lying, liars amongst many other things, even  false, misleading advertising,  human rights abuses, crooked pastors, crooked cops and crooked politicians, crooked professionals etc.
.
Now I was sitting in my Doctor’s office recently while he was helping another patient, next door, so I was spending  my time reading his copies of the latest medical journals .. and one issue in particularly  had about 6 articles about how the doctors really cannot treat depression successfully.. Depression now it certainly cannot be treated with drugs because it does  not eliminate the root causes for a start too.  
.
There are many causes of depression, a real sense of a significant personal loss… caused by real physical aspects and mental ones too.. even caused by lack of sleep, not eating properly now too…  Unresolved depression lends itself to to thoughts of being abandoned, not loved and leads to bad physical health, thoughts and/or acts of suicides.
.
Some people are even falsely depressed cause they are lazy, unrealistic, control freaks, selfish, self centered.. Some people are depressed cause they are on the wrong path all together and thus are lost but won’t admit it. Denial does not work.. it does not help to solve your sicknesses too..
.
No matter what the symptoms are the cause of heart attacks AND CANCER are the main reasons  are still mostly the  bad food you eat, including too much sugar and fats, or falsely skipping meals, or not sleeping 8 hours of Qualitative sleep, not getting enough exercise, 20  minutes every 3 days, and not handling negative personal stress effectively will affect your health but a serious issue is the  failure to get a proper medical tests. such as an echogram.. The same major bad thing that causes the major sicknesses of  heart disease cause Cancer, Arthritis and diabetes too often.. Most persons now would live much longer  on the average, if they could collectively overcome five unhealthy habits: smoking, excess alcohol consumption, poor diet, sedentary behaviour and stressing out. Doing nothing about it now next will not help you  We all sooner or later develop some form of major sickness that has to be dealt with.. .  Doing nothing about it now next will not help you
.
BUT I STILL DO SERIOUSLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU NOT STAY SICK.. WORK HARD RATHER AT GETTING A PROPER CURE. http://stayinhealth.wordpress.com/
.
(Acts 14:22 KJV)    Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the   faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of   God.
.
(Isa   40:31 KJV)  But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength;   they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary;   and they shall walk, and not faint.

.
(Luke 18:1 KJV)  And he spake a parable unto them to   this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;
.
(Heb 13:5 KJV)  Let your   conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye   have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.6  So   that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man   shall do unto me.
So NEXT  I was really startled when within a month on TV I watch a medical add saying are you suffering from depression? your doctor can help you.. this was an unacceptable clearly a false, misleading add and there is no guarantee that any doctor can help you with your depression..

MONTREAL – The mayoral candidates in Montreal are talking a lot about corruption, taxes and reforming the municipal civil service — but for seniors, there are also other pressing election issues.Try snow-clearing, crosswalks and benches. Toss in social housing, age- and mobility-appropriate transit service, street lighting, public washrooms and more communication from city and borough officials, and you have a range of issues that would help any of the mayoral hopefuls shape a platform that appeals to elderly voters whether the electoral battlefield is Rosemont, St-Michel or Notre-Dame-de-Grâce.The problem is, they’re not trying.

http://www.montrealgazette.com/life/Radio+silence+seniors+issues/9073692/story.html

.

Take seniors into account in planning infrastructure, local services and urban architecture; invest in public spaces with activities for seniors and others; take seniors into account when planning sporting and cultural activities in the boroughs.Prioritize snow-clearing on sidewalks.Limit municipal tax increases to inflation, relieving the burden on seniors with fixed incomes.Encourage a social mix in neighbourhoods, accessible to people who live alone, seniors and young families, with a mix of social and affordable housing, market rental housing, individual ownership, cooperatives, a mix of social backgrounds.access to housing.
