State Farm Creep

November 17, 2010

Am I the only person in the world who thinks this guy is a creep?  Is he pleased with himself or what? It is funny to read in the youtube comments that others think he has a punchable face.  I think his whole countenance is revolting.  How is it that insurance companies manage to pick the most unlikeable actors?

    He’s trying to project that he’s “cool”, and that all the “cool kids” insure with State Farm. “Cool” has been creeping me out for decades. Another male concept designed to distract us from the general disgustingness of males.

    No, Kitty, I agree. He creeps me out too. They all do. I wish they would just drop dead. But yes, some are far more smug and revolting than others. Aren’t the drug ads amazing — so many geared at mind control of females, and then the list of side effects, like death, makes it almost funny.

      Actually I wish I had the tools and the know how to start a campaign against Xanax. I have found nothing showing how women are prescribed Xanax more than men, but I know quite a few women who are addicted. It is an addicting drug, like Heroin. Any doctor who prescribes Xanax should be taken out and shot! SHOT! Dead! I did find this interesting comment from a doctor’s site.

      Family Doctors, PLEASE don’t prescribe Xanax or Klonopin!

      From Daniel Palestrant, Founder; CEO of Sermo

      Several hundred physicians on Sermo respond to one Psychiatrist’s plea to not prescribe Xanax or Klonopin. From the psychiatrist’s perspective, the addictive nature of these medications only serves to further exacerbate the patient’s ability to recover.

      Family Doctors, PLEASE don’t prescribe Xanax or Klonopin (or Valium or ativan)! The next time someone comes to you and tells you they have anxiety or panic attacks give them an SSRI or give them vistaril or give them Buspar but PLEASE don’t prescribe Xanax or Klonopin. It’s a big mistake. These medicines are addictive. Even the best intentioned patients find that one tablet works for a while and then after a while they need two because one stops working. They don’t relieve the panic attack or anxiety. They are a bandaid for a larger problem.

      Would you give a bandaid for a severed limb? The patients have to learn relaxation techniques. They should go buy a CD on relaxation techniques. They should exercise to reduce stress. Patients end up taking these meds when they’re angry to calm themselves down. Then they go to a psychiatrist, maybe, and they’re already hooked on these pills. People, particularly young people in their 20s, take an extra pill or two when one doesn’t work and then they go driving and they get pulled over for a DUI. The police don’t care if it is prescribed. If they appear intoxicated they will lose their license. It’s happened to my patients before I stopped prescribing these medicines. When you give them Xanax or Klonopin, you’re essentially telling them they should not work on their problems. Panic attacks are over 90% curable by cognitive behavior therapy which in the case of panic attacks includes breathing and relaxation exercises in addition to positive self talk so they stop catastrophizing. I know as a family doctor (or internist) you don’t have time to tell the patient all of this, but you’re hurting your patients by getting them hooked on Xanax and Klonopin. Come on guys, you might as well tell them to drink a beer (if you’re trying to hit the GABA receptors.)

    I did find one reputable looking survey of 16,000 teens that showed females and males are equally likely to take Xanax (prescribed or not). However, it is my theory that more women are being prescribed Xanax because more women may be more willing to seek help for their anxiety. To me, giving a woman Xanax is like putting high heels on her. It is just another obstacle to weaken her senses. It makes her easier prey. Not just for the obvious such as rape, but for other dealings with men as well.

    Also this:

    According to the Drug Abuse Warning Network (DAWN), psychotherapeutic agents were “the drugs most frequently involved in overmedication” emergency room visits in the last six months of 2003. More females than males were hospitalized for overmedication cases, and young people age eighteen to twenty were involved in overdose visits more often than any other age group. These statistics were the latest available from DAWN as of mid-2005.

    I actually noticed this guy specifically because I was impressed they actually bothered, for once in the history of my life, to cast an attractive male. Usually in commercials, it’s all unattractive men and conventionally attractive women. But I’ll bet he is punchable in real life because he’s white (enough), male, attractive, and knows it.

    Thank you, Kitty, for the info. I have a dear friend suffering terribly while trying to get off Celexa. She was started on psychiatric drugs when she came out to her parents at 13. Another friend has given up trying because the physical, mental, and emotional pain was too excruciating. Doctors’ drugs killed my mother.

    And I blame the 2 psychiatric drugs, Ativan/Lorazepam and Lyrica, as well as Cipro, for bringing my old friend and longtime Separatist activist, Fran Day, to suicide.

    This is a huge industry, and I believe it’s similar to using electro-shock to control/passify/destroy females. (Electro-shock is back. A friend of mine has it regularly.)
