Just had to do this. SACKLER is a pack of rich bastards who helped create the opioid crisis (number four? five? who’s counting) currently running through the States and getting foot holds throughout the world.

Good luck reading all his dribbling shit.

Here is an excerpt….

Richard Sackler, M.D.

1 MS Contin or try to position it alongside MS Contin.
2 Do you recall that issue?
3 MR. STRAUBER: I object to the form of
4 the question. Could you repeat it? I’m not sure I
5 understood the question.
6
7 Q.
MR. THOMPSON: Yes.
One of the concerns when you were
8 developing Oxycodone — I’m sorry — OxyContin
9 Controlled-Release was how you were going to position
1 o it for market share and whether you were going to
11 position it and make MS Contin obsolete and take that
12 market share that MS Contin had, or whether you were
13 going to position it alongside MS Cantin and sell them
14 both together.
15
16 A.
Do you recall that concern?
I recall discussions, but that wasn’t
1 7 the principal driver. The principal — the principal
18 goal was to produce the best product we could, and we
19 believed when we started it and subsequently …

22
Q.
A.
Should I stop?
No, no.
We believed it was and is a better

23 product than MS Cantin.
24 Q. Here’s a memo dated — to Richard S.

1 MR. THOMPSON: Sure. That’s why I was

me, also?

Q.
MR. ELLIS: Here’s an extra copy.
MR. THOMPSON: Great.
MR. STRAUBER: Do you have a copy for
MR. ELLIS: (Passing document.)
MR. STRAUBER: Thank you.
So do you see down there the second
highlighted portion that says “Rationale.”
A. Mine is not highlighted.
Q. Yeah. I’ll tell you where to go.
A. Okay.
Q. So the second highlighted portion,
1 7 “Rationale for another controlled-release opioid
18 analgesic.” And do you see the first sentence below
19 that?

A.
Q.
Oh, I see. That’s a cross-title.
Yes.
I was looking at the text.
And the text below that says,
24 “MS Cantin may eventually face such serious generic
2 5 Sackler from Robert Kaiko. 2 5 competition that other controlled-release opioids must
Page 27

Page 26 Page 28

1 Do you know Dr. Kaiko?
2 A. I do.
3 Q. He’s a Ph.D.?
4 A. He is.
5 Q. What was his role?
6 A. He was the person who undertook or ran
7 the project and was involved — the project of
8 developing OxyContin — and was — as a clinical
9 pharmacologist was deeply involved in selecting
1 o formulations that would be most likely to achieve the
11 desired effect.
12 Q. And under here it says, “Rationale for
13 Another Controlled-Release Opioid Analgesic.”
14 This is Bates number — it’s actually
15 got two Bates stamps. So it’s PDD9520805292.
16 But it says, “Rationale for Another
1 7 Controlled-Release Opioid Analgesic: MS Cantin may
18 eventually face such serious generic competition that
19 other controlled-release opioids must be considered.
2 o Other pharmaceutical firms are thought to also be
21 developing other controlled-released opioid
22 analgesics.”
23 MR.

Netflix made me want drugs.

Nineteen ninety fucken four..?..

Think I was in jail, released just in time for a birthday on Dec 13th. Think the release date was the 12th. Or maybe it was the fucken 13th? Really don’t remember. Or give a shit to be frank. Whoever frank was, he has a few things to answer for.

What I do remember, quite well, was…
Itching to get out the cell and being left there by some sarcastic screw until well after normal release hour…
Climbing up the walls, almost literally…
Warm toast at Dad’s… before telling some bullshit lies and finding my feet tracking down the drug dealer who took up the slack when me and my totally slack mate went to jail…
Two days of remembering sweet fuck all – pretty sure I met the future mother of my daughter mind you…
Blowing through the few grand left with that typical thousand dollar a day ceiling most stupid fuckwits like me aspired to…
Well and truly smashing the old notion that being clean for a few months from methadone means that your tolerance for all things opiate has dropped…

Ho fucking hum. Roll on withdrawal and a shot at another life, for the first time.

Two Thousand and Nineteen…

Netflix has a new film out. The All American version of Mötley Crüe.

Watching this when you happen to be an old drug fiend leaves you feeling pretty odd, I gotta say.

The struggle with giving in and picking up is real. Daily.

Right about now human company would be beneficial.

Currently living alone, but with three ex feral cats has it’s own daily grind. Honestly. Right now I have the 8kg Axe Man between me and computer screen demanding attention. Am bleeding out spike wounds in the back of my hand and wrist. Not from drug use.

Bloody cats… Their bastard claws and teeth sure do work better than those little pins diabetics carry with them everywhere.

Maybe I need a meeting of the Narcotics Anonymous variety? 

For I guess I am single, alone and confused about what ghosts are and why anyone bothers chasing them. Hungry or otherwise.

Or maybe I need to get some real food into me, stretch and get on with whatever the hell it is I do with my broken arse nowadays.

Pretty sure not everyone has a life this depressing.

Just say no, right people?

Just say no.

D2Yv6GtUwAAGYmP[1]Had some food, fired up air compressor and put clear coat on some car parts… Got back to computer after an hour to be followed shortly thereafter by the Lorde Battle Axe… Again – just easier to give in and humour the big fella.

Delphi

EXACTLY how are mental health and addiction leadership groups and direction managed in New Zealand…?….

You go to a meeting, you get to sit in groups (that have been pre determined) you then listen to speakers and discuss amongst your group, writing down likes, dislikes and generally feeling like you are helping change the landscape for the better in the complicated realm of addiction and mental health services or research.

Then you forget entirely you have read an article on this exact technique a long time ago.
It went something like this…

The Delphi Technique:
Let’s Stop Being Manipulated!

More and more, we are seeing citizens being invited to “participate” in various forms of meetings, councils, or boards to “help determine” public policy in one field or another. They are supposedly being included to get ”input” from the public to help officials make final decisions on taxes, education, community growth or whatever the particular subject matter might be.

Sounds great, doesn’t it? Unfortunately, surface appearances are often deceiving.

You, Mr. or Mrs. Citizen, decide to take part in one of these meetings.

Generally, you will find that there is already someone designated to lead or “facilitate” the meeting. Supposedly, the job of the facilitator is to be a neutral, non-directing helper to see that the meeting flows smoothly.

Actually, he or she is there for exactly the opposite reason: to see that the conclusions reached during the meeting are in accord with a plan already decided upon by those who called the meeting.

The process used to “facilitate” the meeting is called the Delphi Technique. This Delphi Technique was developed by the RAND Corporation for the U.S. Department of Defense back in the 1950s. It was originally intended for use as a psychological weapon during the cold war.

However, it was soon recognized that the steps of Delphi could be very valuable in manipulating ANY meeting toward a predetermined end.

How does the process take place? The techniques are well developed and well defined.

First, the person who will be leading the meeting, the facilitator or Change Agent must be a likable person with whom those participating in the meeting can agree or sympathize.

It is, therefore, the job of the facilitator to find a way to cause a split in the audience, to establish one or a few of the people as “bad guys” while the facilitator is perceived as the “good guy.”

Facilitators are trained to recognize potential opponents and how to make such people appear aggressive, foolish, extremist, etc. Once this is done, the facilitator establishes himself or herself as the “friend” of the rest of the audience.

The stage is now set for the rest of the agenda to take place.

At this point, the audience is generally broken up into “discussion—or ‘breakout’—groups” of seven or eight people each. Each of these groups is to be led by a subordinate facilitator.

Within each group, discussion takes place of issues, already decided upon by the leadership of the meeting. Here, too, the facilitator manipulates the discussion in the desired direction, isolating and demeaning opposing viewpoints.

Generally, participants are asked to write down their ideas and disagreements with the papers to be turned in and “compiled” for general discussion after the general meeting is reconvened.

This is the weak link in the chain, which you are not supposed to recognize. Who compiles the various notes into the final agenda for discussion? Ahhhh! Well, it is those who are running the meeting.

How do you know that the ideas on your notes were included in the final result? You Don’t! You may realize that your idea was not included and come to the conclusion that you were probably in the minority. Recognize that every other citizen member of this meeting has written his or her likes or dislikes on a similar sheet of paper and they, too, have no idea whether their ideas were “compiled” into the final result! You don’t even know if anyone’s ideas are part of the final “conclusions” presented to the reassembled group as the “consensus” of public opinion.

Rarely does anyone challenge the process, since each concludes that he or she was in the minority and different from all the others.

So, now, those who organized the meeting in the first place are able to tell the participants and the rest of the community that the conclusions, reached at the meeting, are the result of public participation.

Actually, the desired conclusions had been established, in the back room, long before the meeting ever took place. There are variations in the technique to fit special situations but, in general, the procedure outlined above takes place.

The natural question to ask here is: If the outcome was preordained before the meeting took place, why have the meeting? Herein lies the genius of this Delphi Technique.

It is imperative that the general public believe that this program is theirs! They thought it up! They took part in its development! Their input was recognized!

If people believe that the program is theirs, they will support it.

If they get the slightest hint that the program is being imposed upon them, they will resist.

This very effective technique is being used, over and over and over, to change our form of government from the representative republic, intended by the Founding Fathers, into a “participatory democracy.” Now, citizens chosen at large are manipulated into accepting preset outcomes while they believe that the input they provided produced the outcomes which are now theirs! The reality is that the final outcome was already determined long before any public meetings took place, determined by individuals unknown to the public. Can you say “Conspiracy?”

These “Change Agents” or “Facilitators” can be beaten! They may be beaten using their own methods against them.

Because it is so important, I will repeat the suggestions I gave in the last previous column. One: Never, never lose your temper! Lose your temper and lose the battle, it is that simple! Smile, if it kills you to do so. Be courteous at all times. Speak in a normal tone of voice.

Two: Stay focused! Always write your question or statement down in advance to help you remember the exact manner in which your question or statement was made.

These agents are trained to twist things to make anyone not acceding to their agenda look silly or aggressive. Smile, wait till the change agent gets done speaking and then bring them back to your question. If they distort what you said, simply remind those in the group that what he or she is saying is not what you asked or said and then repeat, verbatim, from your notes the original objection.

Three: Be persistent! Wait through any harangues and then repeat the original question. (Go back and reread the previous column.)

Four: (I wish to thank a reader of the previous column for some EXCELLENT suggestions.) Don’t go alone! Get as many friends or relatives who think as you do, to go along with you to the meeting. Have each person ”armed” with questions or statements which all generally support your central viewpoint. Don’t sit together as a group! Spread out through the audience so that your group does not seem to be a group.

When the facilitator or change agent avoids answering your question and insists that he must move on so everyone may have a chance to speak, your own agents in the audience can then ask questions, worded differently, but still with the same meaning as yours. They can bring the discussion back to your original point.

They could even point out, in a friendly manner, that the agent did not really answer your question. The more the agent avoids your question, and the more your friends bring that to the attention of the group, the more the audience will shift in your favor.

To quote my informant: “Turn the technique back on them and isolate the change agent as the kook. I’ve done it and seen steam come out of the ears of those power brokers in the wings who are trying to shove something down the citizen’s throats. And it’s so much fun to watch the moderator squirm and lose his cool, all while trying to keep a smile on his face.”

Now that you understand how meetings are manipulated, let’s show them up for the charlatans which they are.

Just searching for prison photos to compare against new “architecture” for Levin, and found…

Back in the day spent a little time in this place… The beds were little bits of foam on wire, with a lot of wire missing. Infections left right and centre, some of which would take years to get rid of… Some people never got rid of them at all.

Inside Wellington Prison

I suppose everyone in there was a “dick” and the guards were all there to help us out.

But hey, not everyone is red neck and thoughtless.

 

New Year’s. And Fuck life. 

Totally spewing. The ten dollars I have put in the bucket at Outpawed fundraiser got stolen along with the whole bucket of donations. Silly ladies leaving it out in full view outside entrance to Bunnings though.
But, Fuck. So annoyed and upset for them… And for me losing ten dollars for no reason. And for everyone else who put in more. And for people who put in less.
But most pissed off for the little feral fur baby wild and lost puddytats around the Hutt Valley in Wellington

Lorde Battle Axe New Year’s 2018

Battle Axe mid 2017

Look how handsome LORDE BATTLE AXE is now he has shaken off his coat of scab, dread lock and wounds.
He costs about twenty five a week to keep going. That’s combined bills of once a month flea treatment and regular worm and nutrients.. But he is a star, given what Rappaw Veterinary Care were faced with when I finally caught him and Outpawed found funding for the snip and micro chipping.
He doesn’t reek any longer, and I do not even know when he has been inside on my bed… You used to be able to smell him for hours after him just walking through house… And the trail of flea eggs… 
Anyway, Fuck you whoever stole from these cats on New Year’s just so you could be a loud drunk dick head for free tonight.
Mind you, with everyone bullshitting about how happy and rich they are on face book, no wonder the broke feel left out…
Sadly can empathise with that.
Right now am just totally fed up and spending this New years eve at home by myself being a grumpy old man. 
With my cat.

AUNTY HELEN…
