Addicted to Sleep(ing pills)

Americans need a nap. According to an article in the New York Times about 42 million sleeping prescriptions were filled last year, up 60 percent since 2000. Many researchers say they are worried that the side effects of these pills are unknown and people need to slow down.

The article underlines one more problem with our society: greed. People are working so much to make money that they don't even take care of them selves anymore. We are over worked and over stressed and our priorities are out of whack. What ever happened to taking care of ourselves first--and that doesn't mean popping a pill as the only means to get a good nights rest.

Subsequently, our greed as a society can also be recognized in the drug industries attempt to contrive some bogus sleeping pills and sell them to us.

Look why can't Americans just stop being greedy? I think it will help us all get a better nights sleep.

I don't give a rat's ass about sleeping pills or America's collective sleep deprivation. I rather wanted to point out how chickenshit you are for not contributing to the discussion regarding the caricatures of Mohamed. It is in fact, gasp, even more important than Kayne West or James Frey. Is this really off your radar or are you really so cowardly that you won't comment on the incredibly stupid and hypocritical behavior by so many mentally unstable muslims around the world? Funny you are so silent on this. Don't tell me that you're actually scared to voice an opinion. You know this is ridiculous, cowardly behavior yet you remain silent. No wonder hardly anyone posts anymore. You have lost most of your crediblity as has CNN and most other media outlets. Shame on you!

Chickenshit? Cowardly? Hmm. Interesting. Why would we be scared to talk about the riots?

Tons of news stories come out everyday and we can't cover them all. Plus, the caricatures have been talked about on so many other outlets.

I don't know if I would call the rioters mentally unstable. A more accurate term would be extremists.
