Does Smuge Pot live or die?Submitted by Smudge Pot on Mon, 03/31/2014 - 07:17
Here is a question and I am seriously gonna listen to your input and I will explain why.
Some of you know that I am sick, I have this horrible illness and I fight it ever single day but it's a losing battle. I have so far outlived expectations that I actually feel silly still standing here.
I have been holding onto hope that somehow medical science might come up with a cure.
Miracle of miracles, we think it's here! 93% effective. It can't come fast enough to undo the damage that my body has taken but it could buy me another decade. Imagine that! That would put me into "normal" life span.
Thing is the stuff costs like $80k and let's just be honest here: for $80k you should be able to buy a whole clone army of Smudge Pots. For $80k you should get the patent on my genome and an endless supply of Smudge Pots. Forget it. Ain't gonna happen.
But if I sign up for the Obama/medicare thing, I get these pills for free and that buys me a new lease on life.
OK let's take it real. You know and I know that this cure, this medicine would be coming from you to me. Somebody has a gun to somebody's head. It would be nothing less than rank and filthy CAPITULATION and we know that is WRONG.
Well ideology is nice and all but I literally have this decision to make. Take the cure and live longer or die faster.
The one thing I want to know: would I be letting you guys down to take this cure? Or would that be one step too far?
Would that be like OH DAMNSIT IF SMUDGE POT GIVES UP WE MIGHT AS WELL ALL GIVE UP?
Cause if that's the way it is? Then I'll hold the line. And that's how much I think of you guys. I'd rather die for something than because of something.
Tell me. Would I be letting you guys down if I took this cure? I guess it's kind of a stupid question but I want to hear it from you.
