Day298 NewEraDay8 This is interesting, like FedEx tracking a package

This is interesting, like FedEx tracking a package, I marvel at new inventions so rapidly happening
Who would have thunk it?
It's like thinking of my late grandfather born in the very late 1890s and the changes he and my grandmother
saw in their life (he used to love chess and marbles. He would have loved President Obama and President
Obama's 14D chess games, and he was a major dislike of Fred Trump and Donald in the 1970s,
and well, marbles is a relic of the past, something that like those motels with 13 rooms and 13 vacancies that the interstates passed over.)

anyhoo, this article makes me think-

one day a certain thingydingy I bet will be totally neutralized instantly after leaving that thingy so those thingydingys won't be of any concern ever again, (probably someone is already working on that.

Science is wonderful.

First Digital Pill Approved

For the first time, the Food and Drug Administration has approved a digital pill — a medication embedded with a sensor that can tell doctors whether, and when, patients take their medicine.

The approval, announced late on Monday, marks a significant advance in the growing field of digital devices designed to monitor medicine-taking and to address the expensive, longstanding problem that millions of patients do not take drugs as prescribed.

Experts estimate that so-called non-adherence or noncompliance to medication costs about $100 billion a year, much of it because patients get sicker and need additional treatment or hospitalization.

1. Obama's 14D chess was actually not even up to the level of Tic-Tac-Toe

Does it not concern you that such a device may be used by insurance companies to deny coverage?

4. So nothing to do with Trump but

you reveal yet again that you are fine with authoritarianism.

Fuck this 1984 level bullshit. If I miss a pill, skip a pill, or fucking decide not to take a pill, that is between me and my doctor. We don't need Silicon Valley and the Government stepping in to 'save billions a year'.

5. The modern left always presumes only those things it wants will happen.

Perfect way for a government run health system to declare a person not viable for treatment.
The only upside to this might be with psychiatric medications monitoring but the chance for abuse makes that not worth it to me.

9. In the psychiatric field,

no one can be medicated without their permission unless they are a provable threat to themselves or others. Most with severe bi-polar, schizophrenia, etc. are not, therefore, they stop taking their meds. They rebound, end up back in the system again, and it all starts over.

With this, the modern left wants to return to One Flew Over a Cuckoo's Nest style medicine. It is barbaric. It is authoritarian. It is so fucking typical!

8. Graham enthralled with a monitoring device to ensure compliance..

Never saw that coming.

How long til you get fitted with one that monitors your sugar intake? Let Big Daddy Gov'ment know you are an extra special good boy!!
