Is being an alcoholic a disability?

By Scorpion Sting, published on Apr 1, 2013

...is a "disability" which is both covered and protected by the Americans with Disabilities Act? Included in this post will be, but not limited to, information, links, and my opinions on this little factoid. When did being an alcoholic become a disability? When did being an alcoholic become a disease? I have news for y'all, being an alcoholic is neither a disability or disease. For example, one can quit drinking, but one can not quit having MS or CF. I found that reading at the Americans with Disabilities Act website that the definitions of terms are very screwed up. In fact, I challenge... (more)

The United Nations Shits on Haiti

By Anastasia , published on Mar 3, 2013

...past injustices. As I say, this is a young country. The past is far less important than the present; the crimes of Baby Doc far less relevant than the crimes of...the UN. Yes, indeed, if misery was not misery enough in this country the UN introduced even more; it reintroduced cholera, a disease that had been absent from Haiti for over a hundred years.

After the 2010 quake UN teams arrived bringing all sorts of aid. Unfortunately for Haiti they also brought a lot of shit. Human beings are human beings and waste is waste; there is really not an awful lot one can do about that. ... (more)

I'm No Expert...But

By DKIdea, published on Nov 12, 2012

I’m no expert...but I’d like to give a voice to the millions of people suffering and dying from cancer. I’m no expert, but I’m very familiar with cancer as it has taken away my mother, my aunt (her sister), many cousins and threatens to do even more. Cancer being what it is isn’t the issue I want to give voice to...but cancer being what it’s not: eradicated.

To be logically fair, there are so many types of cancer effecting so many different people that it may never be fully eradicated...but I’m a firm believer that more can be done to combat it and that the key to more successful treatments... (more)

Living with Disabilities

By wolfmomma, published on Jun 16, 2012

...the specialist called me to come back in to his office. He sat me down and proceeded to tell me I had rheumatoid arthritis, aka RA. I did not totally understand the ramifications of what he had told me. I knew it was some sort of joint problem, but I had no idea at all of the directions the disease could take and what it would mean to my life.In three months, the disease had me bed-ridden. I had to stop working and go out on long-term disability. I could hardly walk unassisted. I required either a wheel chair or canes/walkers. I was in intense, miserable physical pain every day. My... (more)

Cancer Sucks

By Angie Alaniz, published on Nov 11, 2011

... violating increases abnormally uncontrollable develops spreads and grows.

Cancer, indiscriminately won’t single you out and can get out of control.

Cancer, ridiculously scary misanthropy is what it hunts and lusts for.

Cancer, gee-whiz turns quickly into a horrible uneasy disease.

Cancer, isn’t a breeze can seize and miserably you plead.

Cancer, cynicism is felt I hate what it does.

Cancer, volitionally takes more then what we have to give.

Cancer, support is rough slough and never enough.

Cigarette

By kAlIKoPELI, published on Nov 10, 2011

Light you, taste you, take you in me

You’re no good for me the surgeon general says

Corrupt my lungs then leave me breathless

I used to be the flame in your lighter

Now I’m only my soul’s fighter

You’re like my favorite cigarette

So bad for me, yet I still want you with no regret

Leave a bad taste in my mouth, but I like the things you do

My love habit puts my lips around you and pulls you in me

No regard for consequence because that how it’s destined to be

I never thought you could hurt like you do

Make me cough,... (more)

Imagine If All Humans Were Vegan

By Arthur Poletti, published on Nov 6, 2011

...the earth’s atmosphere.

VEGANS have *MUCH STRONGER IMMUNE SYSTEMS* and can expect to live healthier and much more productive lives for at least 5 to 10 years longer than former FLESH EATERS.

Because of their strong immune systems, VEGANS rarely contract any of the illnesses or diseases listed below, many of which are directly related to eating chemically-preserved decaying flesh from the corpses of tortured and murdered animals.

Strokes, Heart Disease, Osteoporosis, Kidney Stones, Colon Cancer, Prostate Cancer, Pancreatic Cancer, Ovarian Cancer, Cervical Cancer,... (more)

Filthy Money: The Root of All Infections

By baynurse, published on Sep 16, 2010

Recently I saw an article about germs. People that are germo-phobes do not shake hands. I don't blame them, I have seen you walk out of the bathroom without washing your hands, and you know who you are . Some hygeine practices are just non-existant and poorly done by most people. People have become lax about germs and therefore spreading them abundantly and extensively.

Take money for instance, you find a coin or bill on the floor, do you pick it up, put it in your pocket, kiss it, pass it around, hand it to a homeless person on the street, snort some coke with it, pick up a dead... (more)
