King of the Body Brokers

Who’s your daddy? The great American deception. The game of illusion and who’s da king really? Sharing my thoughts as I make coffee this morning.
It is written by our forefathers that together we stand or divided we fail. I see this principle at work in the addiction communities.
The winners of this epidemic are the large faceless corporations making billions of dollars at the expense of human life from the very Americans that provide their profits.  Shameful if you ask me. What’s wrong with this picture? Divided we fail.

For those that don’t know me, I run Stop Frying Your Brain.com which is a recovery website that features the addicts channel. We are a information portal for individuals challenged with addiction. We seem to be recently labeled the “National Enquirer” in the addiction industry.

Staff members are individuals in recovery. I really don’t care about what people say about them because I’m so proud of all our people and I find myself wondering if a bunch of addicts in recovery running a website need to worry about their reputation anyway.

They are making a difference. Proof positive we do recover. Additionally, after working with addicts for many years, I’m discovering they are actually brilliant people. They are extraordinary passionate about anything they do. Didn’t see that one coming. Who would’ve thought? Now I find we’ve a stable full of racehorses. (a bit like herding cats I might add). Fun !

Our mission statement is to provide information for those who seek it relevant to addiction. At last count we had some 5000+ articles relevant to the challenges of addiction. Featuring stories from others who suffered from addiction and most have positive messages and lessons learned by those who experienced the challenges.

Thousands of people on the website daily and the phone seems to ring continuously from people who are confused by the various operators and experts when they are looking for help. Like we have a crystal ball or something. What we do have is a large community of success and our addicts in recovery do have opinions about what and who works.

As you might imagine I’ve been active in the various Facebook communities pretty much 80 hours a week on average for the last five years.The “divided we fail” concept seems to be flourishing in most of the addiction communities on social. As a result, many of the people seeking help in these communities usually leave disillusioned and very confused. They want to talk to others who are successful in their recovery.

Backbiting of others at a all time high by the “experts” which operate in the various social groups such as facebook.

Pretty sad if you ask me. “Please don’t tag me with that one” or “If their going we’re not” is the statement of the day. Their mission statement seems to be discredit others just as an observation. Other fools seem to take pleasure by pointing out the faults of others while not offering anything of substance themselves and that’s why they do it in the first place if you ask me.

Hence as an internet community we’re all rendered ineffective. I watch with a heavy heart as the individuals which historically helped others are hopelessly slaughtered and discredited. From my perspective an inherently evil thing. Divided we fail seems to hold true across the board. For many their “morality” seems to be defined by the opportunity at hand. Take a few seconds and take a look at this

At the heart of the patient brokering laws is the intent that concerns should not profit off the referrals to/or use facilities they have a vested interest in.  (Financially speaking) billing exorbitant fees for services in the case of urine analysis too.

 If the intent of the brokering laws are to prevent this activity… they are NOT working. We recently came across a major insurance company attempting to dodge the bullet. Denial of service.  Why is this legal?

Google Patent Brokering?

Personally, I have over 40 years experience working in the computer industry. 20 plus years experience in pay per click advertising. See https://www.linkedin.com/in/gorillamarketing/ (note over 5000 endorsements/references)

So I know a little of something about Google adwords. I am recently disturbed by the news Google has stopped accepting addiction treatment advertising. See link above. I became aware of this when I started getting a number of calls to move large brand PPC models off Google onto other platforms. I would also point out Google is no longer the leader in PPC as well.

My take on this it fits with the theme divided we fail. This new WAR against patient brokering is leaving in its wake …..all the legitimate advertisers/operators. I believe it severely limits individuals ability to find the help they badly need.

Who died and left Google in charge anyway? Just saying this is a very dangerous trend for our freedom of choice ect. Total market control by an unelected private entity. Shame on you Google I say. This isn’t the behavior of a democracy. Now that’s more scary to me than a few immoral advertisers. Haven’t we learned as a society we can’t legislate morality anyway? Just saying.
